The Olympic Highway intersections at Old Narrandera Road and Travers Street are in for a makeover.
Roads and Maritime Services is developing a project to improve the busy spots and are looking to the community for feedback.
"Traffic growth as a result of increased land development to the north of Wagga is placing increasing pressure on the intersections of Travers Street and Old Narrandera Road, either side of the bridge," an online statement said.
"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."
The project has three main goals:
- Improving safety, access and traffic efficiency at each intersection, with an intended knock-on effect of improved traffic flow across Gobbagombalin Bridge.
- Improving travel time and reducing delays.
- Reducing the frequency and severity of crashes.
RMS has made sure to emphasise that future duplication of the Gobbagombalin Bridge is a part of this project.
Road users are asked to focus on their experiences, detail all incidents and concerns at particular locations and consider the environment, traffic and road safety, property and access, public transport and parking in their feedback.
