Key themes emerging for transport strategy - 29 March 2016


Cycle ways, public transport and the condition of roads are just some of the hot topics that came out of the first stage of the Our Transport consultation.

A key component of the Wagga Wagga Integrated Transport Strategy 2043 (WWITS 2043), the feedback from stakeholders and broader community has been combined with the outcomes of a technical report to draft emerging strategies.

A workbook ‘Moving Forward Together: What matters to you?’ collating all of this information has been developed to make it easy for residents to comment before the WWITS 2043 is drafted for public exhibition.

Manager Strategic Planning, Liz Rankin, says the consultation process has provided valuable insight into the potential for transport in the city.

“We’ve come up with twelve sections as a result of the feedback, covering everything from parking around the medial precinct to getting to and from the booming northern growth area,” she said.

“This strategy will help guide our approach to all forms of transport in Wagga for the next 30 years, so before we move on to the next stage, we need as many people as possible to take a look and make sure that these strategies are on the right track.”

Summary reports of the feedback received so far and the workbook are available online, and staff will be on hand at a shop front at 192 Baylis Street for the next week to sit down one on one with residents and stakeholders to go through the details and take comments.

“I encourage everyone to take a few moments to discuss these emerging principles with us so that we can create a strategy that best reflects what the community needs and expects,” Ms Rankin continued.
