The Wagga Wagga City Council’s roadwork blitz is well underway, and scheduled to continue through February. 

The rehabilitation efforts adopt a pavement recycling methodology under trial by the Council, and have already achieved success along Red Hill Road and Stanley Street.

The Red Hill Road works completed in late January stretched between Plumpton Road and Tamar Drive and between Glenfield Road and Bourke Street, while works on Stanley Street between Leavenworth Drive and Lake Albert Road were finished in early February.

These works also follow the completion of the Kooringal Road upgrade in mid-January.

The Red Hill Road upgrades have repaired areas along the main southern thoroughfare, which deteriorated due to ongoing heavy rainfall in recent months.

Council’s Director Infrastructure Services, Warren Faulkner, said it was a positive result for Council to have sections along Red Hill Road, Kooringal Road and also Stanley Street finished within five weeks.

Mr Faulkner said the Council was pleased with the outcome so far.

“There have been many advantages to using this methodology with one of the main strengths being the reduced time it has taken to complete a significant project,” Mr Faulkner said.

“We had Kooringal Road done in about two weeks … a job that traditionally would take ten weeks. 

“Red Hill Road had two sections completed in two weeks. The top section of Stanley Street was done in a week.”

Contractors will start work in February along Northcott Parade, followed by Darlow and Slocum streets.

“We’re making good progress on these rehabilitation works … weather conditions have been ideal with minimal interruptions despite some rainfall,” Mr Faulkner said.
