Road Reseal Program 2017/18
The City of Wagga Wagga undertakes its reseal program throughout summer and early spring each year.
What is resealing?
Resealing is a common preventative road maintenance technique where a new coat of bitumen and stone/aggregate is applied over an existing surface.
The City of Wagga Wagga’s annual reseal program extends the life of local roads by:
- Increasing the surface texture for better tyre friction
- Sealing cracks in the existing surface to protect the pavement beneath from moisture
- Preventing the existing surface from further oxidisation (UV degradation)
- Maintains the surface to a good condition
A total of 70 roads have been identified, and are currently being prioritised to receive part or full upgrades in the 2017/18 reseal program.
About $2M will be spent resealing 33km of road from Lake Albert to Glenfield, Tolland to Kooringal and many more in between. About 10 rural roads are also included in the 2017/18 program.
In preparation for the reseal, stage maintenance works have been carried out on a number of streets. This preparation work ensures the best surface is available for the reseal. With this preparation works now coming to a close, the reseal program can start.
The following dates and steets have been scheduled for the 2017/18 program:
|Tuesday 28 November||Raye Street, Joyes Place, Bowmen Place, Boyd Place|
Wednesday 29 November
*Thursday 30 November - additional day if required
Anne Street, Bruce Street, Martin Street, O'Connor Street, Holloway Street
Additional streets/locations will be listed here as they are scheduled. Scheduling is subject to weather conditions and contractor availabilities. Residents will be advised by letter box drop conducted by Council's contractor of upcoming works and changed traffic conditions.
