Banks MP David Coleman has promised $200,000 in Federal Government funding for a roundabout on the corner of Oatley Parade and River Road in Oatley.

Federal member for Banks, David Coleman, has announced that if re-elected, the Morrison 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.

Another $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.

"This is money that our community needs to improve our roads, and I am so proud that we are delivering it," Mr Coleman said.

As the campaign entered its final week, Mr Coleman listed a number of his achievements in the electorate.

"We've secured funding and completed important projects along the Georges River, including Lime Kiln Bay at Oatley, Salt Pan Creek at Peakhurst, Moore Reserve at Hurstville Grove, and Poulton Park at Connells Point," he said.

"We've backed local community organisations with the new hall at 3Bridges in Penshurst, and provided significant support for great local organisations like Kogarah Community Services and Kingsgrove Community Services.

"We've also provided $15 million to open the M5 ramps at Riverwood to help families get home sooner and safer.

"There's still a lot more to do. We have committed $50 million to upgrade King Georges Road between Stoney Creek Road and Connells Point Road, more than $15 million to improve parking at Hurstville and Riverwood, an additional $1 million for the Georges River, and much needed funding to upgrade the St George netball courts at Rockdale.

"We have a strong local economy and keeping it strong is critical to getting important local projects done."
