Construction advances on Dunns Road upgrade

Published: 07 Jul 2023 11:45am

Construction on the project to upgrade Dunns Road has made good progress since starting over a month ago.

When complete, this project will improve traffic flow and make it safer for everyone who uses this road.

Wagga Wagga City Council Senior Project Manager Tim Morris said contractors have widened and reshaped the western end of Dunns Road.

“A major drainage culvert has been installed on the realigned section of road near the Olympic Highway and earthworks on sections of the existing road have been completed,” Mr Morris said.

“The entire 3.3-kilometre unsealed section of the road has been stabilised with a lime additive and is now ready for the road base to be laid.

“Contractors are aiming to start laying the road base in the next week, weather permitting.

“Delivery of the road base material will lead to a significant increase in truck movements in the area for up to two weeks.”

Motorists are urged to be alert and take extra care when driving near trucks.

Dunns Road is closed between Kunzea Place and Olympic Highway to ensure the safety of all road users and workers, and to allow the works to be completed as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Only local residents and emergency vehicles are allowed access during this time.

The project is funded by the Australian Government ($5.8 million) and Wagga Wagga City Council ($2.5 million).
