Transport for NSW in collaboration with Wagga Wagga City Council have developed the draft Wagga Wagga Transport Plan to provide a vision for how Wagga Wagga’s transport network, infrastructure and services will be managed and developed over time to realise community aspirations.
JUN 2021Feedback period has closed
We called for community feedback on the draft Wagga Wagga Transport Plan from Friday 23 April to Friday 28 May.
This feedback will be used to help us understand the community’s priorities and values for Wagga Wagga’s transport network, now and into the future.
The feedback period is now closed and we are collating and considering all submissions received. A community feedback summary report will be released in coming months.
Thank you to everyone who submitted comments and filled out the survey.
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.

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.
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.
Following the release of the draft plan, Transport for NSW called for community consultation between 23 April and 28 May, 2021.
The community’s comments will help us understand local priorities and future expectations.
The community was asked to submit feedback via an online survey, via email, phone and post. An online information session and community drop-in session were also held to provide further information.

Following the end of community consultation on the draft Wagga Wagga Transport Plan, we are collating and considering all feedback received. We will draft a community feedback report and release it in coming months.
The final Wagga Wagga Transport Plan is expected to be released in mid-2022.
