first of 71 new footpaths to be constructed across the city in 2016-17 has been completed in Padstow.
City of Canterbury Bankstown Administrator, Richard Colley, today inspected the path in Adelaide Road, between Astley Avenue and Orient Road.
"Footpaths are more than just a strip of concrete along the side of the road, they connect people to local shops and other destinations," Mr Colley said.
"We are committed to constructing around 13 kilometres of new footpaths this financial year, to make it easier for pedestrians and cyclists to move around.
"That 13 kilometres will add to the existing 940 kilometre network of footpaths.
"We've done a great job in the past and will continue to improve and add to this network in coming years.
"To enable us to do this, we have allocated almost $3 million this financial year."
Each year, residents put forward their suggestions as to where they think new footpaths should be constructed, these are then prioritised.
All 71 projects allocated funding in 2016-17 are expected to be completed by April next year.
