A 20-year transport vision for Wagga Wagga released

Published

The NSW Government has today unveiled its 20-year plan to build a more efficient and accessible transport network that will improve daily life for families in Wagga Wagga. 

Minister for Regional Transport and Roads Sam Farraway said the Wagga Wagga Transport Plan is the first of its kind for a major regional city and focuses on making travelling from A to B easier for the community. 

“This plan provides a blueprint for transforming the movement of people and goods travelling within Wagga Wagga over the next two decades,” Mr Farraway said. 

“Working with Wagga Wagga City Council and using feedback from the community, the plan lists 35 initiatives which focus on walking, cycling and public transport as attractive alternatives to driving private vehicles.

“There is also a focus on the city’s expanding industry precincts and business strengths and how the transport network can best drive economic benefits."

Member for Wagga Wagga Joe McGirr said the final Wagga Wagga Transport Plan has been driven by the community’s needs and wants, alongside a shared vision with Council, local business and industry, and other groups and agencies.

“There was some outstanding feedback when we asked the community for its ideas and expectations to help us understand the priorities and values for Wagga Wagga’s transport network, now and into the future,” Mr McGirr said.

“The community feedback has been incorporated into a number of changes in the final plan, which we are now urging residents, visitors and business operators to embrace and join us on this 20-year journey.”
