Wagga Wagga City Council is upgrading a section of Pine Gully Road and Old Narrandera Road, south-west of the suburb of Estella.
Pine Gully Road was nominated as a National Black Spot and will be upgraded to reduce the number of car accidents from the Old Narrandera Road intersection in the south, to Estella Road in the north.
Council’s Manager Project Delivery, Rupesh Shah, said site investigation works have begun, with Eco Logical Australia (ELA) to undertake and prepare a Review of Environmental Factors.
“We have also engaged Electrical Design Solutions to carry out electrical layout and lighting design works, and their site investigation works start this month,” Mr Shah said.
“Detailed road design will be undertaken by Council and is expected to be completed by October.”
The project includes the design and reconstruction of pavement along the length of Pine Gully Road from Old Narrandera Road intersection to 180 metres North of its intersection with Estella Road.
The Old Narrandera Road will also undergo pavement reconstruction from a point approximately 100 metres West of the Olympic Highway / Pine Gully Road intersection, as well as widening to incorporate a second westbound lane.
“Discussions are underway with the developer in relation to extending Avocet Drive West from its current end to Pine Gully Road,” Mr Shah said.
“New intersections will be built at Cootamundra / Pine Gully, Estella Road / Pine Gully Road, Muttama Parade / Pine Gully Road, and Old Narrandera Road / Pine Gully Road as part of the overall project.”
Construction is expected to start in February 2021 and the project to be completed by October 2021.
