Road Reseal Program 2017/18
Wagga Wagga City Council 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.
Wagga Wagga City Council'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
The 2017/18 roads reseal program will focus on roads across 12 suburbs and some rural areas. The program starts in January and will run for three months.
A total of $1.5M will be spent resealing 30km 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.
The following dates and steets have been scheduled for the 2017/18 program:
