More than 120 projects have been completed in Canterbury-Bankstown, so far this financial year, with a further 263 set to be delivered by the end of June next year.

Mayor Khal Asfour said some of the projects delivered or currently underway include:

  • Completion of stage 1 of the Canterbury Town Centre upgrade ($6.7 million);
  • Rorie Reserve, Padstow – creek/waterway restoration ($800,000);
  • Foord Avenue, Hurlstone Park – new rain garden to protect Cooks River ($545,000);

 Road upgrades at:

  • Noble Avenue, Greenacre ($510,000);
  • Hudson Pde & Moller Avenue, Birrong ($450,000);
  • Marigold Street, Revesby ($365,000);
  • Gurney Road, Chester Hill ($330,000);
  • Bobadah Street, Kingsgrove ($180,000); and
  • Benaroon Road, Belmore ($130,000).
  • Improved drainage at Belmore Sports Ground ($100,000); and
  • Traffic improvements at Chapel Road South and Gibson Avenue, Bankstown ($236,000).

"These projects are commitments which we have promised to deliver, as part of Council’s record $100 million Capital Works Program for 2019-20," he said.

"To date, we have finished 126 projects, valued at more than $10 million, which had been prioritised based on need and resident feedback.

"To budget, plan and deliver each project is no small job – it takes months of planning and consultation with the community before we begin them."

Some of the projects still to be delivered in 2019-20 include:

  • Wagener Oval, Ashbury - new amenities building ($750,000);
  • Ewen Park, Hurlstone Park – sports field lighting upgrade ($260,000);
  • Construction of a new jetty at Picnic Point and surrounding improvements ($250,000);
  • Concept designs for a splash park at Roberts Park, Greenacre; and
  • Planning for the new Max Parker Leisure and Aquatic Centre at Revesby.

Councillors Linda Downey and Steve Tuntevski welcomed the news, particularly that regarding the Max Parker facility and Picnic Point jetty projects.

"There has been significant consultation with local residents and I am pleased that work is expected to start on the Carinya Road jetty early next year," Councillor Downey said.

"These projects are already planned and budgeted for, so I am disappointed the Member for Banks seems to be looking at taking credit for Council projects identified in his electorate," Councillor Tuntevski said. "They’re already locked in!"
