ENGINEERING AND TECHNICAL OPPORTUNITIES

The NSW Government improves accessibility at Redfern Station as part of the Transport Access Program. The project aims to provide a station precinct accessible to those with a disability, limited mobility, parents/carers with prams and customers with luggage. Upgrading Redfern Station will make it easier for all customers to access and improve connections between the station and key destinations in the area. The upgrade includes a new concourse at the southern end of the station.
