The City of Canterbury Bankstown has completed 97 per cent of the projects promised in 2017-18, with just under a month before the end of the financial year.

Some of the third quarter highlights:

  • Completion of the first stage of the Wagener Oval upgrading;
  • Construction of the $2.5 million multi-purpose Yagoona Community Centre;
  • Completion of design work for the Canterbury Town Centre upgrade, with construction set to begin next financial year;
  • Completion of drainage work along Bennett Street, Chester Hill, to reduce flooding issues;
  • Completion of various footpaths, road upgrades and landscaping, including The Mall and The Appian Way, Bankstown;
  • Construction of a car park at Wiley Park Railway Station;
  • Restoration of Morgan’s Creek, including work to stabilise surrounding banks;
  • Construction of new roundabout at McDonald Lane, Bankstown;
  • Commencement of design work for the Hector and Wolumba Streets Bridges upgrades, to improve pedestrian safety and traffic flow;
  • Delivering a number of community events, including Australia Day celebrations, Lunar New Year and Campsie Food Festival;
  • More than 80 local groups involved in Council’s annual Clean Up Australia Day efforts;
  • The completion of the third and final stage of the Panania Town Centre upgrade; and
  • Canterbury-Bankstown becoming one of the first councils to introduce City-wide Woman of the Year Awards, recognising local women for their leadership and contribution to our community.

Mayor Khal Asfour said the third quarter was a very productive one.

"Our $72.4 million Capital Works Program is one of the largest in NSW," he said.

"We have now delivered 225 projects, including more than 126 transport, 30 buildings and 46 sports fields, playgrounds and open space projects.

"I am proud of how hard we have worked to get through this exhaustive program of projects, which have made a real difference to the lives of tens of thousands of residents. But, our work is far from done.

"We can’t please everyone all the time but the councillors and I remain committed to continuing to provide improved services, and we do our best to invest funding wisely.

"Information we have received from residents during extensive consultation undertaken at different times throughout the year, has helped us formulate the new capital works program which will go before Council for approval later this, following the completion of the public exhibition period."
