Member for Banks, David Coleman, recently announced that if re-elected, the Government will provide $200,000 in funding for a roundabout on the corner of Oatley Parade and River Road in Oatley to improve congestion and safety, as well as $180,000 for a roundabout on Edgbaston Road and Melvin Street in Beverly Hills to improve visibility.
The targeted plan will make Banks an even better place to live and get around in a significant win for locals.
Mr Coleman said that this funding commitment demonstrated the Morrison Government’s commitment to improving the lives of everyone in Banks.
“The Morrison Government has a long-term plan for investment in the St George area which will make it a better place to live, work and play,” Mr Coleman said
“This is money that our community needs to improve our roads, and I am so proud that we are delivering it.”
Minister for Cities, Urban Infrastructure and Population Alan Tudge said the projects were part of the Coalition’s record $100 billion investment in infrastructure across the country.
“The Coalition’s $5.3 billion Western Sydney Airport started the infrastructure transformation across the region,” Minister Tudge said.
“We have committed $3.5 billion to rail infrastructure that will be up and running the day the airport starts operating. All of this means jobs for the people of Western Sydney and our infrastructure plan will get everyone home sooner and safer each day.
“The Morrison Government has also invested in commuter car parks in the area at Riverwood, Revesby, Panania and Hurstville that will take up to 1500 cars off the road.”
