    The construction of the Fairford Road overpass divided Warren Avenue Bankstown into two separate parts. On the eastern side of the Fairford overpass, Warren Avenue is now a cul-de-sac. Traffic that accesses Warren Avenue from Excellor Street cannot access the businesses located on the eastern side of Fairford Road.

    Following several requests from concerned businesses, Council is proposing to rename one section of Warren Avenue. Following consultation with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) Reference Group, it is recommended that the section be renamed as “Bugi Close”.

    Over the coming 20 years, the Bankstown CBD is planned to double the amount of jobs, students and residents, which will put more demand on our streets and transport network. At the same time we need to address existing issues in the CBD such as safety, high car use, time delays, difficulties accessing parking, inefficient use of land, areas with poor amenity and the overall image of Bankstown.

    To support this transformation and address the key issues, Council needs an integrated transport and streetscape plan to ensure the city center is both an accessible and appealing destination.
