Section of Tarcutta Street set for million dollar renewal - 29 February 2016


Wagga Wagga City Council is continuing its road works blitz this week with $1.2M worth of work set to start on Tarcutta Street.

A brand new layer of asphalt will be laid between Morgan Street and Edward Street under the Roads to Recovery program, with a section of kerb and gutter also set to be replaced.

Manager of Engineering, Alex Fenwick, says the asphalt works will be completed at night to ease the impact on road users.

“We will do one side at a time so that one direction of traffic is always left open and both lanes will be open outside of night works, however there will be some additional lane closures in place for kerb and gutter works over a three day period.

“There will be no work on Saturday night so the road will be open in both directions if you are travelling into the city for the NAB challenge at Robertson Oval.”

The night work will be undertaken by contractors Fulton Hogan in conjunction with Council and will involve removing the existing road surface and reinstating the road with new asphalt.

The kerb and gutter works will be carried out during the day over three days with some lane closures and traffic control in place.

A timetable of works and detour information can be found on the website:
