Mayor at Stacey Street

​The City of Canterbury Bankstown has welcomed the news, Roads and Maritime Services is set to investigate the widening of Stacey Street.

“We have been battling for more than a decade to get something done about Stacey Street,” Mayor Khal Asfour said.

“Local residents and motorists know it can become a virtual parking lot in peak periods and it’s been getting worse every year.

“It’s also been impacting local businesses and large transport freight companies, trying to move goods between Sydney Airport, Port Botany and the Sydney CBD.

“It got so bad, we as a Council even went to the trouble of presenting a solution to then Premier Barry O’Farrell, providing concept plans and a visual fly-through, because no action was being taken.

“So, it’s great, they have finally listened and are at least investigating what can be done.”

The news comes after the Austroads Congestion and Reliability Review identified Stacey Street as the slowest road outside the Sydney CBD, fourth-slowest road in Sydney overall and the seventh-slowest in Australia, with an average speed of 18 km/h.

Council understands RMS is set to look at the feasibility of upgrading the section starting from just north of Rookwood Road, through the intersection with Hume Highway, past Rickard Road and the railway line, before ending at Griffiths Avenue. It also includes improving sections of Hume Highway, on either side of Stacey Street, including at Boronia Road, and provide new shared pathways.

“While this is certainly a step in the right direction, it doesn’t go far enough,” Mayor Asfour said.

“There need to be more entries to Greenacre from Stacey Street because, at present, there’s only one (Greenacre Road). All the others have a no right turn and if RMS doesn’t address it, it will continue to be a nightmare for the thousands of residents who face a choked Greenacre Road each day.

“I now hope RMS gets on with the job of undertaking and completing a thorough investigation, and not come up with yet another compromise which is a bandaid measure.

“Let’s finally get this done, do the job right, and relieve the stress and pressure off motorists, businesses and our local residents.”
