Work starts to improve Hammond Avenue at Wagga Wagga
18th February 2015
The NSW Government will start road rebuilding work next Friday 27 February on Hammond Avenue through Wagga Wagga.
Daryl Maguire MP said the NSW Government provided $3 million this year to replace sections of the existing road surface to improve road safety and reduce future maintenance costs.
“A major road rebuilding project will be carried out on Hammond Avenue or the Sturt Highway between Marshalls Creek Bridge and the North and Mason streets roundabout,” Mr Maguire said.
“Work is scheduled to start on Friday 27 February and is expected to take up to two weeks to complete, weather permitting.”
Motorists are advised changed traffic conditions will be in place 24 hours a day, seven days a week until work is completed.
Two lanes will remain open on Hammond Avenue during the work with no right turns to be allowed from the highway. Access to Nagle and Nesbitt streets will be left in and left out with alternative access via Copland Street.
To ensure the safety of workers, motorists and other road users, a temporary 40km/h speed limit will be in place during work and traffic control and signs will help direct motorists.
Mr Maguire thanks the community for their patience while this essential road improvement work is carried out.
