APR 2021Have your say on the future of Wagga Wagga

Wagga Wagga is changing. It’s time to look at managing the transport network differently to realise the community vision for the city and ensure transport can support growth in a sustainable way.

Transport for NSW is calling for community feedback on the draft Wagga Wagga Transport Plan (PDF, 10Mb).

In the lead-up to the draft plan, we involved a number of community groups in workshops and meetings to help inform the plan’s development. This included collaborating with Wagga Wagga City Council. Now we’d like to hear from you.

Tell us which of the key initiatives you think are most important by:

Your priorities will help us understand the community’s priorities and future expectations.

Feedback is open until 5pm Friday 28 May 2021.

Hard copies of the draft Transport Plan are also on display at the Wagga Wagga Civic Centre on the corner of Baylis and Morrow streets, Wagga Wagga

Project information

The Wagga Wagga Transport Plan outlines a staged approach to reprioritising Wagga Wagga’s urban roads and streets so:

  • priority networks are developed for walking, cycling, bus, general vehicle access and through movement of heavy vehicles
  • walking and buses are prioritised within the Health and Knowledge Precinct and Central Business District
  • local access to and from precincts is prioritised within Wagga Wagga’s urban core
  • Edward Street and Hammond Avenue are reconfigured to focus on movements to and from land uses along the corridor
  • a heavy vehicle alternative route to the north of Wagga Wagga is investigated that links the Olympic and Sturt highways and connects key freight and logistics precincts outside the urban core.

For further information on the initiatives view or download the Wagga Wagga Transport draft plan (PDF, 8.22Mb).

A place-based transport plan provides a vision for how a city’s transport network, infrastructure and services will be managed and developed over time to realise community aspirations.

Place-based transport plans seek to identify a suite of infrastructure and non-infrastructure solutions for these centres and are delivered in collaboration with Local Government and key State agencies to provide a clear cross-Governmental vision for transport, infrastructure and land use. The draft Wagga Wagga Transport Plan is the first place-based transport plan developed for a regional NSW city. The plan has been led by Transport for NSW in collaboration with Wagga Wagga City Council and with input from local community groups and other State Government agencies.

We will contact the community in coming months to communicate the results of the community feedback.

The final Wagga Wagga Transport Plan is expected to be released later in 2021
