Redfern upgrade call

Redfern railway station needs an urgent

upgrade to cater for the people with

disabilities, a coalition of disability and

community groups says. The groups will

this morning launch a campaign to see lifts

installed at Redfern station, one of the

busiest points on Sydney's train network,

yet one with extremely poor disabled

access. The Lift Redfern campaign will aim

to collect 10,000 signatures and force a

debate on the issue in Parliament. The

campaign will be launched this morning by

the Disability Discrimination Commissioner,

Graeme lnnes, the Lord Mayor, Clover

Moore, the acting vice-chancellor of the

University of Sydney, Stephen Garton,

Sydney Greens councillor, Irene Doutney,

and community members.
