Road Reseal Program 2016/17

The City of Wagga Wagga undertakes its reseal program throughout summer and early spring each year.

Works for 2017 begin on Tuesday 10 January and traffic conditions throughout the city will be subject to change, including road closures and partial road closures.

All traffic changes will be signposted and all works start at 7am.

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
