Roads safety and crossing

​More than $4.7 million is set to be invested in making local roads even safer.

City of Canterbury Bankstown Administrator, Richard Colley, said the Council has secured the funding as part of the Federal Government's Black Spot Program, and the NSW Government's Active Transport and Safer Roads Programs.

"This is a great example of all levels of government working together to make our communities safer," Mr Colley said.

"The safety of our drivers and pedestrians is paramount and we remain committed to delivering the necessary improvements when they are identified.

"Council has received funding for 28 projects which are expected to start late next month and are scheduled for completion in April, weather permitting."

Increased infrastructure will include:

  • The construction of roundabouts;
  • Upgrades to intersections;
  • Installation of median islands;
  • Installation of stop signs and give way signs;
  • Introduction of bicycle lanes;
  • Installation of pedestrian refuges; and
  • Installation of raised pedestrian crossings.
