Macleay Street rehabilitation works to begin

Published: 06 Apr 2023 11:34am

Contractors are expected to start rehabilitation works on a 720-metre section of Macleay Street, between Erin Street and the Urana Street roundabout, after Easter.

Director Infrastructure Services Warren Faulkner says the stabilisation and pavement strengthening will take place during the daytime over the school holidays.

“During school term, there is a lot of traffic along this section of Macleay Street as students are dropped off and picked up by buses and vehicles at Wagga Wagga High School and the NSW TAFE Wagga Wagga campus,” Mr Faulkner said.

“We have scheduled the rehabilitation works during the holidays in an effort to minimise the extent of the impact on traffic and residents.

“While there will be some disruptions to traffic flow due to lane closures and restricted access from some side streets, these works will deliver a much smoother and safer ride quality for all road users.”

The works are scheduled to take place between 7am and 5pm from Tuesday 11 April to Tuesday 25 April 2023, including Saturdays, weather permitting

Detours will be in place for through traffic during the works.

Residents will have access to their properties, and the works will be under traffic control.

Upcoming works across the region will continue to be finalised and communicated over the coming weeks and months, notifying road users and residents that may be impacted by the works.

The dates for the rehabilitation of a 500-metre stretch of Bomen Road in the industrial estate are yet to be finalised with the contractor.

Council encourages all road users to drive to conditions as Council works through a backlog of repair and rehabilitation works, especially over the Easter period which traditionally sees an increase in families traveling for school holidays.

“We apologise for any inconvenience this work may cause and appreciate the patience of residents and road users,” Mr Faulkner added.
