New street signs will start to be rolled out throughout Bankstown following council’s decision to adopt a new look.
Mayor of Bankstown, Councillor Khal Asfour, said following recent changes to the Australian Standard, council carried out a review of its current street name signage.
“We have more than 5,000 street signs in our city, so we want to make it easier for motorists to navigate their way through our streets,” Mayor Asfour said.
“The templates for our current signs are nine years old and each sign is costly to produce.
“The new street templates are rectangle in shape and include the Bankstown City logo, property numbers and the ‘City of Bankstown’ wording.
“These new signs not only meet the Australian Standard, they are easier to spot and read.
“The added bonus is can be produced a lot quicker and are cheaper, saving ratepayers$10,000 a year.”
Existing signs will be replaced with the new version as required.
