Plan to revitalise Bankstown's streets

Residents are encouraged to have their say on a new 20-year plan, which focuses on improving transport networks and streetscapes in Bankstown.

The draft Bankstown Complete Streets Transport and Place Plan will be on public exhibition, from Monday 6 May to Monday 17 June.

Mayor Khal Asfour said the document includes a streetscape plan to make Bankstown more accessible and also sets out the vision, principles and strategies that will guide the future growth of its transport system.

"This plan is part of our commitment to transform Bankstown’s CBD and improve liveability," he said.

"At the same time, we aim to make changes that will improve traffic to local businesses and create a greener destination where residents feel safe.

"This is all about creating better access for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists alike.

"Our vision is to make Bankstown an even more desirable place to live in, work in visit and enjoy, and this can only be achieved with planning and community feedback."

Recommendations within the draft plan include:

  • Completing the ring road to provide better access to the edges of Bankstown;
  • Creating additional public spaces and shared zones;
  • Simplifying bus routes;
  • Adding more street trees; and
  • Installing new pedestrian/cycle routes and bike lanes.

Residents can view the draft plan and see concepts and images for each street, via an interactive online map and 360-degree virtual reality scenes.

Feedback can be provided online at cb.city/haveyoursay, while information sessions on the draft plan will be held during the exhibition period. A report summarising community feedback will then be presented to a future Council meeting.
