Kooringal Road nightworks on track

Ongoing road rehabilitation works on Kooringal Road has seen significant progress over the past two weeks.

Nightworks recently started on a stretch of the road adjacent to the Equex Centre as well as the sealing of a 500 metre section immediately north of Lake Albert Road.

The project is part of an ongoing program to rehabilitate and maintain the local road network with these $2 million works funded through the Federal Government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure program.

Wagga Wagga City Council Director Operations Warren Faulkner said work has started at either end of Kooringal Road with a total of 2.6 kilometres to be rehabilitated.

“Council continues to focus on renewal of our high volume sub-arterial roads that are in need of attention,” Mr Faulkner said.

“Kooringal Road is a significant road in a large network and motorists will certainly notice the benefits from this round of works.

“Weather conditions have been perfect for the nightwork crews who have made terrific progress over the first week. Everything has gone to plan so far.

“Sealing of the first stage of the works at the Lake Albert end has enabled the day crew to progress with these works as well.”

The road upgrade is being completed in two sections.

Lake Albert Road to Vincent Road is a three-stage program along 1.6 kilometres.

The other section is approximately one kilometre between Copland Street and Simkin Crescent.

The project is scheduled to be finished by 30 June to meet funding requirements.
