Airport Avenue Placemaking

Bankstown Airport will soon see the Marion Street entry undergo a major makeover as part of the Airport Avenue Placemaking works.

The works will deliver placemaking, landscaping, wayfinding and infrastructure upgrades at Airport Avenue and adjacent airport-maintained streets (Avro Street, Miles Street, Desoutter Street), along with streetscape improvements to sections of Marion Street.

Renowned landscape architects Oculus have prepared the landscape master plan to guide these placemaking initiatives. Award winning construction group Taylor Australia will deliver the works.

The Airport Avenue Placemaking works are in line with our vision to create the ultimate gateway to Southwest Sydney.
