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.

Roads and Maritime 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 safety, access and traffic efficiency at each intersection, with a knock-on effect of improved traffic flow across Gobbagombalin Bridge
  • Improve travel time and reduce delays on this section of Olympic Highway
  • Reduce the frequency and severity of crashes on this section of Olympic Highway.

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.

We will carefully consider all feedback received during the community feedback period when developing preferred options to upgrade the Old Narrandera Road and Travers Street intersections.

Roads and Maritime expects to announce the preferred intersection options in coming months.
