WAGGA council decided to hit the footpaths in an effort to smooth out tripping hazards throughout the city.
The council will target 39 streets across four suburbs for grinding works that are currently underway in Turvey Park, Kooringal, Tatton and the CBD.
Operations manager Sylvester Otieno said the trip hazards will be minimised by creating a flat, smooth footpath for the community to use safely.

"While it will improve pedestrian safety, it will also make it easier for community members pushing prams or using mobility devices to move around their neighbourhood," he said.
The $100,000 maintenance program will have about half the streets completed before Christmas and the remainder in the new year.
Grinding works will take place from Monday to Friday between 7am and 4pm, as well as, on Saturdays from 7am to 1pm.
