Have your say on the proposed Thurgoona Drive intersection upgrade

Published

The Albury community is invited to provide feedback on a concept design to improve safety and traffic efficiency at the Thurgoona Drive interchange.

Member for Albury Justin Clancy said the NSW Liberal and Nationals Government is seeking feedback from the local community on proposed upgrades to the east and west roundabout intersections.

“We know that the interchange at Thurgoona Drive currently experiences congestion in the morning and afternoon peak hours,” Mr Clancy said.

“Safety and efficiency upgrades are key to ensure we have a high-performing interchange that will enable more reliable journeys as we see significant growth and investment in the region particularly through the state’s first Regional Job Precinct.

“Engaging the community at this early stage of planning will enable us to deliver a solution that meets the growing needs of the community and business as we plan for the future.”

Minister for Regional Transport and Roads Sam Farraway said the concept design for upgrades to the Thurgoona Drive interchange would mean a safer and smoother journey for road users.

“We are getting on with the job of building the infrastructure that matters to regional communities like Albury,” Mr Farraway said.

“Upgrades like the one we are planning in Thurgoona will complement the NSW Liberal and Nationals Governments investment into the Albury Regional Job Precinct and make daily life easier for locals and visitors travelling through the region for work, school or visiting friends and family."

Proposed improvements include additional lanes to improve safety and efficiency for motorists and changes to increase the performance of both the west and east roundabouts making the daily commute easier.

Community feedback will help inform the detailed design and ensure Thurgoona Drive is improved in safety, accessibility and efficiency, and provides better-connected transport services on either side of the Hume Highway.

Transport for NSW is seeking community feedback by 11.59pm on Tuesday, 28 February 2023.

Feedback can be provided at transport.nsw.gov.au/thurgoonadr via email SouthProjects@transport.nsw.gov.au, or by post at Thurgoona Drive Intersections Upgrade project team, PO Box 484, Wagga Wagga NSW 2650.
