Wagga Wagga’s new Main City Levee Bank was officially opened today marking a significant upgrade to one of the city’s most important pieces of infrastructure.
Works on the $23M project were completed in early March 2020 with the levee now capable of protecting the city against a 1 in 100 year flood event.
The opening was performed by Mayor of the City of Wagga Wagga Councillor Greg Conkey OAM, Federal Member for Riverina, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development Michael McCormack and Wagga
Wagga MLC Wes Fang.
The project was the result of all levels of government combining to fund the infrastructure, with the Federal Government ($10M) and the State Government ($4.1M) contributing more than $14M.
