Upgrades to several of the city's most prolific traffic hot-spots may soon be on the way, following years of resident calls for a review.
The Roads and Maritime Services has this week released its report into the Old Narrandera Road, Olympic Highway and Travers Street intersections, concluding that some work must be done to improve driver safety.
Almost 400 residents in Wagga, Junee and Coolamon provided comments and suggestions for improvement in the RMS's recent community consultation in June.
Of the respondents, 80 per cent were concerned with road safety at each of the affected intersections.
Delving deeper, 52 per cent were primarily concerned about driver safety on the Old Narrandera Road intersection.
Since January, Kane Salamon has lived on Travers Street, and although he was not among the survey recipients, he acknowledged deep concerns for the Olympic Highway and Narrandera Road intersection.
The road used to be part of his daily commute, but since witnessing a number of close near misses, Mr Salamon has decided to bypass the intersection altogether.
"Coming back from uni, you couldn't get across [the Old Narrandera Road intersection] without seeing something," said the medical student.
"I'd be driving at about 8.30 in the morning which was a peak time, and then if I left at 4[pm], it'd be alright but by 5[pm] it was nuts.
"Half of it is how it's built, but the other half is driver hesitation, they don't want to be sticking out in traffic."
The report goes on to suggest that the inclusion of a roundabout at the intersection may go ways to solving the problem.
Mr Salamon agrees this would slow the traffic effectively, but just as effective, he said would be the extension of the merging lane.
"The short merging lane is a problem if that was extended that'd help without a doubt," Mr Salamon said.
"But it'd be hard to do because then you've got it going right down onto the Gobba bridge."
"Since I've moved here, I've seen so many near-misses, I've almost had one too," he said.
"They're not quite merged, and you have to slam on the breaks to avoid hitting them."
Mr Salamon believes improving the intersection comes down to promoting a cultural shift towards driving.
"People don't understand that you're meant to cross the first line, and then when it's safe, merge into traffic," he said.
"Drivers break the flow, and it comes down to driver knowledge.
"I grew up in Sydney, that's where I learned to drive, there you've got a lot of different roads, different traffic to deal with.
"Here it's very different, and an odd intersection like the on out at Gobba, people don't know how to tackle it."
Additionally in the RMS report, 26 per cent of respondents called for improvements to the Travers Street intersection and 12 per cent asked for cyclists and pedestrians to be considered in future upgrades.
Mr Salamon welcomed the suggestion.
"My plan when I moved here was to cycle out to uni because it's just a few kilometres away," he said.
"But then I saw the bridge, and thought, 'no way'. I still see people doing it, I think they're little nuts.
"It would be cool to see it become a bit more like in Sydney, where there are bike lanes added onto the side of bridges, so it keeps it safe."
Despite the release of the report this week, it is unclear when any work will begin, or what that work will entail, with the report stating that "Roads and Maritime expects to announce the preferred intersection options later in 2019".
In particular, the intersection between the Olympic Highway and Old Narrandera Road has been the focus of review since September last year, when the RMS originally announced its work approval.
