Nearly $88 million invested in capital works

Nearly $88 million invested in capital works Almost $88 million has been allocated in the City of Canterbury Bankstown’s Draft 2018-19 Operational Plan. No  

Almost $88 million has been allocated in the City of Canterbury Bankstown’s Draft 2018-19 Operational Plan.

It will be the first time, since amalgamation, that a draft budget will be linked to the 10-year Community Strategic Plan, which is a vision of what Council hopes the City will look like by 2028.

Mayor, Khal Asfour, said the next 10 years would be transformative for Canterbury-Bankstown.

"I know that we can achieve a City that is thriving, dynamic and real, if we undertake tangible actions now," Mayor Asfour said.

The community will have the chance to have its say on the Draft 2018-19 Operational Plan, which is on public exhibition at Council’s Customer Service Centres and nine Library and Knowledge Centres, until Thursday 31 May.

Residents are also invited to put a submission in online at, with all comments to be received by 5pm on the same date.

More than $87.5 million has been allocated to the Capital Works program, compared to the $72.4 million, which was invested in 2017-18. It includes:

  • $36.2 million for 182 separate road and transport projects, including Koala Road, Chapel Road, Croydon Street and Noble Avenue;
  • $16.6 million for parks and a sport and recreational program, including new sport and recreation facilities at Wagener Oval, new surfaces at Amour Park, Waterworth Park and Parry Park, along with the construction of a new synthetic playing field at Jensen Park;
  • $10.7 million for the design and construction of various community buildings;
  • $3 million for environmental works, including investing in a litter collection device at the Cooks River;
  • $7.3 million for upgrades to bridges, pathways and boardwalks at sites, including Hector Street and Wolumba Street, Chester Hill;
  • $7 million for works to commence on the upgrades to Canterbury and Revesby Town Centres;
  • $1.5 million to reconstruct the Canterbury Road underpass; and
  • $2 million in Council’s SMART City journey, as well as updating Council’s Library and Knowledge Centre resources.

Mayor Asfour said a main focus in delivering these projects would involve community engagement.

"We want to be prosperous and innovative, moving and integrated, safe and strong, liveable and distinctive, healthy and active, and clean and green," Mayor Asfour said.

"The only way we can achieve that is if we have our community’s input. We want to listen to your suggestions, understand what you want and factor them in when we’re planning for your City."

One of the ways Council’s Community Engagement team intends to further involve the community is through "taking it to the streets" in its new engagement vehicle to promote community conversations.
