Council advising community of December Dunns Road closure

Wagga Wagga City Council is advising residents of its intention to close Dunns Road between 3 December 2019 and 13 December 2019 to complete a necessary surface upgrade following months of extreme weather conditions.

Ongoing dry weather coupled with recent heavy rainfall has contributed to the development of heavy rutting and corrugations along the five-kilometre road, prompting the need for immediate maintenance grading to take place.

“Weather permitting, the grading works will be completed in 11 days,” Director Commercial Operations Caroline Angel said.

“Signage will be in place at both the Western and Eastern ends of Dunns Road to alert road users to the road closure.”

Dunns Road will be closed between 7am and 5.30pm each day, however local access will be maintained.

“The road will be reopened every evening,” Ms Angel said.
