Road Reseal Program 2017/18
Wagga Wagga City Council undertakes its reseal program throughout the warmer months 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.
There will be changed traffic conditions during the works and motorists should also be aware of loose stones while the surface interlocks, which takes two to three weeks. A street sweeper will return to all resealing sites after this period to remove any remaining loose stone.
