A record $20.5 million will be invested in roads by the City of Canterbury Bankstown in 2017-18.
Administrator, Richard Colley, said Council is looking forward to delivering dozens of projects over the next financial year.
"We are the largest Council in the state so it’s expected that we would have one of the biggest roads budgets," Mr Colley said.
He said Council will invest $17.9 million under its 2017-18 $72.4 million Capital Works Program, with the remaining $2.6 million coming from the NSW Government’s Active Transport and Australian Government’s Black Spot Programme.
"This funding is a great example of all levels of government working together to make our communities safer for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians," Mr Colley said.
He said upgrades and improvements to the City remained an important focus for Council.
"A priority of ours is to make sure residents and visitors alike can easily get to and from our City, and destinations within," Mr Colley said.
"Funding these projects means that we can add to the already existing 907km road network, 1,803 kerbs and gutters, 33,833 road signs and 3,989 traffic management devices."
Works on the first road project for 2017-18 (Panorama Parade, Panania), have begun.
Increased infrastructure will include:
Construction of new roads;
Reconstruction and resurfacing of existing roads;
Kerb and gutter reconstruction;
Construction of roundabouts;
Upgrades to intersections;
Installation of median islands;
Installation of traffic signs;
Design and construction of on road shared paths and renewal of bridges
Installation of speed humps;
Installation of pedestrian refuges; and
Upgrades of pedestrian crossings.
