Council exceeds major works schedule

Council exceeds major works schedule City of Canterbury Bankstown Mayor, Khal Asfour, said completing the Major Works schedule for 2017-18 was a focus of Council’s, with residents and motorists’ safety coming first. No  

City of Canterbury Bankstown Mayor, Khal Asfour, said completing the Major Works schedule for 2017-18 was a focus of Council’s, with residents and motorists’ safety coming first.

"Being proactive with our roads and footpath program is a necessity, which is why we place such emphasis on delivering our projects on time, if not earlier," Mayor Asfour said.

With less than six months to go until the end of the 2017-18 financial year, more than 159 projects, 116 transport projects and almost 21 building projects have been completed.

"We’re just over the halfway mark and have already exceeded in delivering the bulk of our $72.4 million Capital Works program," Mayor Asfour said.

"We’re on schedule, and that’s where we want to stay. Now that Council is well and truly back into the swing of things, we plan to accelerate our works schedule."

More than 30 projects, totaling $17.7 million, were completed in the three-month period, between October and December last year.

Mayor Asfour said it was a tremendous achievement by Council, considering things usually tend to slow down towards the end of the year.

"We made it a priority to ensure the majority of our projects were completed before Christmas and the New Year, so that our community could enjoy new facilities, playgrounds and sporting fields," Mayor Asfour said.

"We also wanted them to rest easy knowing our road, footpath and transport infrastructure was improved, for when travelling with their family."

One of the major projects, completed this month by Council, was the upgrade of Chapel Road, Bankstown, from Edward Street to High Street.

The $810,000 project included minor stormwater and drainage work, as well as the reconstruction of the kerb and gutter, kerb ramps, bus stops, road pavement and a traffic island.

"This improvement was a high priority for us because it ensured our older infrastructure around Bankstown CBD was upgraded, which made it safer for our road users and pedestrians," Mayor Asfour said.

"A further 18 projects are in the pipeline, including the footpath reconstruction at Chapel Road, Bankstown, and irrigation and surface improvement works at Waterworth Park."
