​The draft Connective City 2036 plan will make it easier to travel around Canterbury-Bankstown and create new job opportunities.

Mayor Khal Asfour said the development of the plan was a strategic approach to better align different modes of transport with all parts of the City, particularly in town centres, so places are easy to access and retain street character.

“This approach, in turn, supports local business and community activities,” he said.

“We also need to future-proof our City with new technologies, such as the potential introduction of on-demand mini buses, expanded car share services, driverless vehicles or trackless trams.”

Mayor Asfour said the Sydney Metro project will act as a catalyst for new and improved bus services, and walking and cycling connections.

“The way people travel will change in years to come, as Canterbury-Bankstown becomes a great example of a 30-minute city, with faster, more frequent and direct access to Greater Sydney,” he said.

“This approach will better align transport choices to better meet people’s needs and, from this, we can make our city centres more attractive places to work in, live in, shop at and visit.

“It’s also envisaged that improved transport connections will help create more local jobs and support a strong economy.

“There are currently around 115,000 jobs and we are planning for the creation of an additional 41,000 over the next 20 years.“

Connective City 2036 provides opportunities for growth in a wide range of sectors, including industrial, construction, warehousing, distribution, retail and office space, and attracting more high-profile businesses.”

The draft Connective City 2036 document is on public exhibition until 15 November. For more information, and to have your say, visit cb.city/haveyoursay
