$101 million to be invested in major projects

$101 million to be invested in major projects More than $101 million will be invested in 384 projects in Canterbury-Bankstown in 2019-20. No  

More than $101 million will be invested in 384 projects in Canterbury-Bankstown in 2019-20, including:

  • $33 million on roads, car parks and traffic improvements;
  • $9.9 million on parks, playgrounds and sporting facilities;
  • $9.6 million on town centre improvements;
  • $6.9 million on community buildings;
  • $5 million on road and pedestrian bridges;
  • $4.1 million on footpaths and boardwalks; and
  • $1.8 million on improvements to river water quality.

Mayor Khal Asfour said this is the largest program of capital works carried out by Council.

"Residents told us in surveys that they want Canterbury-Bankstown to be an even safer, cleaner and greener, prosperous and innovative, moving and integrated, healthy and active, more liveable and distinctive, and engaged City by 2028," he said.

"This new financial commitment follows on from our previous three budgets, aimed at making the vision of our residents a reality.

"For example, over the last three months alone (January to March), we have completed 203 projects valued at $27.7 million. That is a phenomenal effort by our staff, who are on the ground day in day out, making sure Canterbury-Bankstown remains the thriving City it is.

"As much as I would like to undertake every project residents want, it’s obviously not possible. But, in order to meet the growing needs of our community, we have planned in a responsible and well informed manner."

Over the next 12 months, some of the projects Council will deliver include:

  • Stage two of East Hills car park;
  • Waterway restoration at Rorie Reserve, Padstow;
  • Improvements to Revesby town centre and stage two of Canterbury town centre upgrade;
  • Construction of new playground at Parry Park, Lakemba;
  • Upgrading of half basketball court at Leonard Reserve, Roselands;
  • Bridge widening work at Wolumba and Hector Streets, Chester Hill;
  • Installation of sportsfield lighting at Potts Park, Yagoona;
  • Construction of new amenities at Wagener Oval, Ashbury; and
  • Construction of bike path around Cup and Saucer Creek, Canterbury.
