The worst roads in Wagga have been revealed and it's not ones you may have first thought of that comprise the top five.
A survey by NRMA of Wagga residents had 149 people respond with what they thought were the city's worst roads based on congestion, safety and the condition they are in.
Any story or survey we do on the region's worst roads usually gets an overwhelming response of the same street names.
People use these roads every day and are quick to comment when it comes to talking about their poor conditions or safety risks.
There are the usual suspects, roads that are travelled on by a large number of road users that would be known to most residents or regular visitors to the area.
But then there are the lesser-known roads, ones that residents in more outlying areas of the community travel on regularly to get to and from work and school pick ups.
Because while we are screaming for roads at the university or central business district to be fixed, these survey results show that there are roads right across the city that need attending to.
We don't usually think of congestion for a prerequisite for a worst road moniker.
It's usually the amount of pot holes or loose gravel that are present on the road that people judge it for.
But in a city that's population is increasing, congestion is likely to be a growing concern.
Wagga's businesses and infrastructure are expanding, housing estates are developing and more people are choosing the Riverina for a tree change.
The city is expanding outward so it makes sense that more roads, especially the outlying ones, are experiencing congestion in the midst of a growing population.
But widening a road to improve congestion and traffic flow or filling potholes and sealing roads costs money.
Severe under funding has been attributed to the lack of upkeep and demise of the region's roads.
But how do you keep up with already under funded roads when more just keep requiring maintenance before the old ones are fixed?
