Safer Roads Investigation: Chapel Road South, Bankstown and Gibson Avenue, Padstow

Consultation has concluded.


Council is currently undertaking a road and pedestrian safety investigation for the local roads of:

  • Chapel Road South, Bankstown; and
  • Gibson Avenue Padstow.

This investigation is supported by the NSW Government’s Safer Local Road Program, which targets road locations with a history of accidents.

This Proposal

Council is proposing to introduce the following traffic and pedestrian management upgrades and we are now seeking comments and feedback from the community.

Gibson Avenue, Padstow:

  • Upgraded line marking between Watson Avenue and Beamish Street – Area 1;
  • Construction of a raised pedestrian crossing at the Halcyon Avenue intersection – Area 2;
  • Installation of a new Stop sign at Gow Street- Area 3; and on

Chapel Road South, Bankstown:

  • Introduce/install Right lane turn bays for vehicles to turn into Irvine Street, Hoskins Avenue, Edward Street, High Street, and White Avenue – Areas 3 to 6; and
  • Construction of a new concrete median island at the Chelmsford Avenue intersection – Area 7.

This proposal also includes a number of minor upgrades to median islands, signage, and line marking within the project area – see Overall Consultation plan.

All works are expected to be completed in the 2019/2020 financial year.

The exhibition period for this investigation closes at 5pm on Thursday 4 July 2019.

We are committed to ensuring the local community (and commuters from outside the Local Government area) have to opportunity to consider these upgrades and provide feedback and comments. All feedback, issues and concerns raised over this exhibition period will be tabled at the Traffic Committee meeting when this investigation and proposed upgrades are being considered.
