The City of Canterbury Bankstown and Cumberland Council are working together to widen two important road links at Chester Hill.

Both councils were successful in receiving $2,370,500 funding from the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development (DIRD), to upgrade Hector Street Bridge and Wolumba Street Bridge.

City of Canterbury Bankstown Mayor, Khal Asfour, said widening these bridges was necessary to improve traffic and pedestrian safety.

"Hector Street Bridge was constructed in the ‘50s, so we need to expand the existing two narrow lanes and install a protection barrier between them and a new footpath," Mayor Asfour said.

"The single biggest issue with Wolumba Street Bridge is that it only has a single traffic lane, which means motorists approaching from both ends have to stop and negotiate who passes through first. So, we intends installing two traffic lanes."

Once concept plans have been finalised, construction on the two bridges will begin later this year and take around a year to build – weather permitting. Council intends informing local residents in Chester Hill about the work over the next two months.

"It’s very important they are aware of the detours which will be put in place while the projects are underway," Mayor Asfour said.

"We’ve had preliminary discussions with some residents and all feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, so we know residents and motorists who use this bridge are wanting these upgrades."

As well as the Chester Hill projects, the City of Canterbury Bankstown is investing a further $2.6 million on bridges and boardwalks, including upgrading Maluga Park and Lang Road pedestrian bridges, and replacing the timber boardwalk in Lambeth Reserve.

Council also recently finished upgrading Lansdowne Bridge, at Henry Lawson Drive, where $140,000 was invested in replacing it with an aluminium structure.
