Successive governments have failed to acknowledge and respond to Redfern’s public transport needs. Transport infrastructure has not kept up with growing residential density and associated transport demand in the area.
Accessibility upgrades at Redfern Station are long overdue and since 1994, there has been no pedestrian access at the southern end of the station.
While I welcome the State Government’s commitment to a new southern concourse and lifts, more detailed design work needs to be done before construction begins. The Government should not rush to address decades of inaction with a plan that doesn’t work for both residents, commuters and visitors.
We are committed to working with the community and the State Government to address the valid concerns raised by residents, particularly those on Little Eveleigh and Marion streets who will be most affected. You can read more here.
