Work has started this week on the final stage of the multi-million upgrading of Panania Town Centre.
Mayor Khal Asfour said the City of Canterbury Bankstown is investing more than $700,000 in the third and final stage.
"Our focus in all our town centre improvement projects is to further improve accessibility and safety," Mayor Asfour said.
"It means it’s a win/win for everyone – residents looking to shop local, businesses wanting to attract more customers, and pedestrians and motorists moving or travelling through the area."
Ben McGrath, who owns Ben McGrath Chiropractic on Anderson Avenue, said he was looking forward to increased road safety measures and enhancement of the town centre’s streetscape.
"Panania has always had a village feel and to keep that feel by planting trees and improving the conditions of the roads can only be a positive experience for shoppers and, in turn, for the local businesses," Mr McGrath said.
"It is always good to see the installation of footpaths, and median islands are a good investment too, as they make drivers slow down and look."
Mayor Asfour said the new work follows on from stages one and two, where $1.8 million was invested on widening footpaths, constructing new pavement and parking spaces, and installing a pedestrian refuge.
"Over the past decade, more than $26 million has been invested in 44 town centre improvement projects in Canterbury-Bankstown," Mayor Asfour said.
"This commitment will continue under the new aligned Liveable Centres Program across Canterbury-Bankstown."
"A further $6.4 million will be invested in the upgrading of Canterbury Town Centre, with work to start later this year, while improvement projects are being planned for Hurlstone Park and Lakemba.
