Work is expected to start shortly on road safety improvements in The Mall, Bankstown, at a cost of almost $2 million.
City of Canterbury Bankstown Administrator, Richard Colley, said the work involves:
"We haven’t had any injuries as a result of accidents in the area for more than three years, and we want to keep it that way," Mr Colley said.
"This work will ensure motorists travel at a safe speed and provide even further protection for pedestrians in what is a very highly used area of Bankstown’s CBD."
Peppertree Café manager, Kurtis Lion, welcomed the announcement.
"It’s great to see Council is investing in the safety of its residents," Mr Lion said.
"I hope these changes will bring many more people to the area."
Mr Colley warned the work will result in some short term pain for long term gain.
"Work will commence shortly and is anticipated to be completed in June – weather permitting," he said.
"At times, partial road closures will be required and on-street parking may also be affected, so I apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause but, in the end, it’s to everyone’s benefit who uses this area."
This is one of 14 road safety improvement projects being undertaken by Council in 2016/17, at a total cost of more than $2.5 million, funded under the NSW Government’s Safer Roads Program.
