Transport for NSW is developing a project to improve Olympic Highway intersections at Old Narrandera Road and Travers Street.

AUG 2020

AUG 2020Preferred options announced

The preferred options have been announced for the intersection upgrades at Old Narrandera Road and Travers Street.

Traffic lights and additional lane capacity are features of the preferred options, which were found to be the safest and most efficient choices for both locations.

As part of the project, the roundabout at Travers Street will be removed and the intersection moved to the south, while the merge lane on the Olympic Highway at Old Narrandera will also be removed

Transport for NSW’s call for feedback in June 2019 revealed overwhelming support for the installation of traffic lights at these locations.

We investigated 15 options for Old Narrandera Road and 12 options for Travers Street, considering future growth, safety and efficiency while also taking into account their impacts on the surrounding environment and road network.

Project information

The Olympic Highway through Wagga Wagga provides an important regional and local link from suburbs north of the Murrumbidgee River, Bomen Freight Hub and Charles Sturt University to services in Wagga Wagga via the two-lane, two-way Gobbagombalin Bridge.

Traffic growth as a result of increased land development to the north of Wagga Wagga is placing increasing pressure on the intersections of Travers Street and Old Narrandera Road, either side of the bridge.

Transport for NSW is investigating road and intersection upgrades at the Olympic Highway intersections with Old Narrandera Road and Travers Street and widening the Sturt Highway to four lanes over Marshall’s Creek in Wagga Wagga.

The objective of the Olympic Highway project at Old Narrandera Road and Travers Street is to:

  • Improve road safety
  • Improve access between northern growth areas and services in Wagga Wagga
  • Improve travel time and reduce delays for commuters and freight travelling on this section of the Olympic Highway
  • Support future residential growth in the Wagga Wagga area.

While Gobbagombalin Bridge is not being considered as part of this work, the proposed intersection upgrades will improve safety, access and traffic efficiency for this increasingly busy area.

The next stage of the project will be to further refine the intersection designs and develop the environmental assessment.

We will continue to keep the community updated as the project progresses.
