Bankstown Airport Runway/s

Does anyone know if Bankstown Airport (Sydney, Australia) is capable of B737 or A320 take-offs & landings?

From memory RWY 11/29 Centre can take a BA146 and maybe a B737. The problem is the taxiways, about 99% of them can't take the weight.
BAL plan for YSBK if it is ever upgraded for airline use is to build a terminal on the southern side next to HDH.

The dimensions and strength of runway 11C/29C are capable of supporting operations by aircraft generally referred to as corporate jets.

This grouping includes aircraft up to the Gulfstream G4 & G5 and the Bombardier Challenger & Global Express types. Aircraft larger than these types, such as the Boeing Business Jet and the Airbus 319CJ, are not permitted to operate through Bankstown Airport.
