Image Philip Thalis Options Analysis
This graphic, produced by Architect and City Councillor Philip Thalis, compares four Southern Concourse options for Redfern Station. The Red option is TfNSW's preferred option linking Marian Street to Little Eveleigh Street. The Blue option is TfNSW's option 2, which goes around the heritage Telecommunications building. The Green option is the more direct route for the blue option. The Black option addresses the lack of footpath at Marian Street and feeds directly into South Eveleigh. The black option seems to be the option supported by those campaigning to for a better Southern Concourse outcome at Redfern Station. It should be noted however that none of these options currently connect to platforms 11&12.
Reconnect Redfern Campaign Facebook
Following concerns being raised during the May 2019 southern concourse consultation about Transport for NSW's preferred option, a campaign was launched under the name "Reconnect Redfern: quality public access for locals and station users" to push for a better solution to the option presented by TfNSW. This is the link to the Facebook page for this campaign.

These are the answers to what Transport for NSW (TfNSW) thought the frequently asked questions would be in their consultation over their proposed preferred southern concourse option at Redfern Station in May 2019.
File Proposed Souther Concourse Consultation Newsletter May 2019
This newsletter was distributed as part of the consultation under taken by Transport for NSW (TfNSW) for their proposed preferred southern concourse option at Redfern Station in May 2019.
Image Redfern Station Option 3 for long Southern Concourse through Little Eveleigh Street 2019
The consultation for Redfern station in May 2019 only showed Transport for NSW's preferred option (option 3). The documentation referred however, to two other options that were considered but these details were not released to the broad community but the details were shown to some institutions. This slide is Option 3 and it was the only option released for the public consultation. It proposes lifts to all above ground platforms at the southern end. It connects to Little Eveleigh Street. This option is preferred by Transport for NSW but has drawn strong criticism because of its impact on Little Eveleigh where residents are arguing that a modified Option 2 would be a better option. In the FAQ document for the exhibition TfNSW says: A 'long' concourse option across the rail corridor connecting the Marian Street entrance and Little Eveleigh Street with lifts and stairs to Platforms 1 to 10. This option is the preferred option as it provides access to all platforms from both sides of the rail corridor and has better connectivity to key destinations within the broader precinct. This option would take less time to construct and be opened to customers earlier than option 2.
Image Redfern Station Option 2 for long Southern Concourse through North Eveleigh 2019
The consultation for Redfern station in May 2019 only showed Transport for NSW's preferred option. The documentation referred however, to two other options that were considered but these details were not released to the broad community but the details were shown to some institutions. This slide is the Option 2 referred to in the consultation material. It proposes lifts to all above ground platforms at the southern end. It connects through North Eveleigh to Wilson and Ivy Street. This option is rejected due to its longer walk time. This bridge takes an unexplained convoluted path around the heritage Telecommunications building. Earlier plans were close to the rear of the buildings on the southern side of Little Eveleigh Street and had quicker travel times. In the FAQ document for the exhibition TfNSW says: A ‘long’ concourse option across the rail corridor connecting the Marian Street entrance and Wilson Street with lifts and stairs to Platforms 1to 10 with a pedestrian pathway between Platform 1 and Wilson Street. This option was not preferred from a customer perspective with a less desirable access across the rail corridor and the pedestrian pathway. This option would also require more footings to support the bridge and take longer to construct with the increased distance between Marian Street and Wilson Street.
Image Redfern Station Option 1 for Short Southern Concourse 2019
The consultation for Redfern station in May 2019 only showed Transport for NSW's preferred option. The documentation referred however, to two other options that were considered but these details were not released to the broad community but the details were shown to some institutions. This slide is the Option 1 referred to in the consultation material. It proposes an accessibility solution with three lifts on the northern end of the station and four on the southern end. Under this option, the Southern Concourse does not connect to Little Eveleigh Street. In the FAQ document for the exhibition TfNSW says: A ‘short’ concourse option with lifts and stairs connecting the Marian Street entrance to Platforms 2 – 10. A separate lift could be installed connecting customers from Platform 1 to Lawson Street. This option is not preferred as it would provide poor connectivity for customers interchanging between Platform 1 and other platforms. This option does not meet the project objective of providing access across the rail corridor for customers and the community and connections to key destinations in the broader precinct.
Image Little Eveleigh Street Options under Transport's preferred option (Option 3) 2019
The consultation for Redfern station in May 2019 only showed Transport for NSW's preferred option with a southern concourse discharging into Little Eveleigh Street. This image shows some of the options for changes in Little Eveleigh Street to accommodate the proposal. This image was not released to the broad community but the details were shown to some institutions. At the REDWatch meeting, Transport for NSW said they were talking to Council about Little Eveleigh Street possibilities. Transport also said that Transport could take control of the areas around the station out of Council's control to facilitate movement to and from Redfern station. Each of the options shown in this slide remove parking from Little Eveleigh Street and seek to manage the bike, pedestrian and vehicle traffic conflicts that will result from the southern concourse discharging into Little Eveleigh Street.
