Redfern Station Accessability Upgrade
On 27 February, the story of the upgrade was carried in the Sydney Morning Herald and the following information appeared on the Transport for NSW website. The anouncement came just before the NSW Government went into Caretaker mode so it is not expected more details will be officially available until after the March 23 NSW Election. The SMH reported that "After years of refusals by successive governments to upgrade the heritage-listed station, six lifts and six sets of stairs will be installed as part of a $100 million project, ensuring better access for commuters to platforms one to 10. The lifts will link to a footbridge to be built at the southern end of the station. It will improve access to the Australian Technology Park, Carriageworks and the University of Sydney. The footbridge will connect Gibbons Street, on the eastern side of the rail tracks, with Little Eveleigh and Wilson streets to the west. While preliminary surveys and geotechnical work are under way, major construction at Redfern is not expected to begin until late this year and will take about a year to complete". The link to the SMH story is at the foot of this post.
