Options for station upgrade

REDFERN: Redfern Station is one of the busiest in Sydney, with over 40,000 commuters using it every day to access Sydney University, the Australian Technology Park, North Eveleigh, or simply to transfer to one of numerous suburban lines ... The need for an upgrade has seen several plans considered by the previous state government. These plans have only just been released to the public.

NSW cabinet recently decided redevelopment of the railway corridor stretching three kilometres from the CBD’s Goulburn Street car park to Macdonaldtown would be part of an international Expression Of Interest (EOI) process.

Singing on the train

Catch a train on the Eastern Suburbs and Illawarra line in peak hour on a Thursday night and you might experience something more common on a New York subway than any Sydney rail service.

Flowers at Redfern Station?

REDFERN: Back in 1985 Redfern Station won the Best Station Garden competition over 90 other railway stations. It took nine months for its dedicated Station Master, Hilton South, to create the beautiful flowerbeds, and he and his staff worked long hours on their own time to maintain them.

UrbanGrowth in Redfern-Waterloo

The state government authority responsible for delivering the BEP2 planning controls for public housing estates in Redfern and Waterloo and for planning on the former Eveleigh Railyards has made yet another transformation. The SMDA, which was formally the RWA, became the UrbanGrowth Development Corporation (UGDC) on January 1. The UGDC retains the SMDA’s Growth Centres powers which allow it to compulsorily acquire land and consolidate it in designated growth centres (currently Redfern-Waterloo and Granville). It will play a broader re-development role alongside a partner agency called UrbanGrowth NSW.
