Wagga Wagga City Council is embarking on program of major civil works worth a total of almost $5.5 million, for the repair, rehabilitation and renewal of several key connector and heavily used roads in the local government area.

At its Ordinary Meeting on Monday night, 20 November, Council accepted a $4.5 million offer from Complete Road Seal (CRS) for the rehabilitation of 13 road segments within Wagga Wagga.

The works will include sections of Kooringal Road, Copland Street, Morgan Street, Forsyth Street and Johnston Street, as well as the length of Church Street and Cross Street.

It adds to a $1 million contract already approved to contractors Fulton Hogan for a separate package for works, funded under the NSW Government’s Regional and Local Roads Repair Program.

In a separate package of works, Council is also undertaking a program of road improvements which includes sections of Keajura Road, Byrnes Road, Nesbitt Street, Norton Street, Main Street, and Ziegler Avenue.

Residents and road users are advised these roads will be under traffic control during the works, while detours may be in place if full road closure is required to complete the construction activities. This may affect property access and on-street parking.

In effort to minimise disruption to traffic, some of these works will take place during the evening when the roads are least utilised.

However due to visibility, safety, logistics, and cost requirements for some stages of construction, works will be required take place during the day.

Council will provide further details on the delivery of these projects as they are scheduled.

** Please note: given the nature of building road, the timing of road works constantly changes due to external factors, particularly poor weather conditions (i.e. rain, thunderstorms), and site constraints.
