safety lift at Redfern

Disability Discrimination Commissioner – Graeme Innes with Sydney Lord Mayor – Ms. Clover Moore

Redfern Station services major educational facilities including a leading global university, significant national Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander institutions, and, with the creation of CarriageWorks, a major new cultural hub for the City and the Inner West. People with disabilities, older people, parents with young children, pregnant women, people with short term mobility issues through illness or injury, and people with luggage or shopping have great difficulty in accessing or cannot access the Station as there are no lifts to any platform. The inaccessibility of the Station for some community members and the congestion impacts for those who can access the platforms is major economic drain on our communities. There are also significant lost opportunity costs to our communities by the government not addressing access problems at Redfern Station.
