Eunony Bridge in east Wagga Wagga is set to be upgraded. The bridge will be a key piece of infrastructure for the Wagga Wagga High Productivity Freight Route, which will provide better access to the Bomen Business Park and connections to the Olympic Highway. Combined, the Eunony Bridge Road Deviation, the new Eunony Bridge, Bomen Enabling Roads and the proposed RiFL Hub, stand to have huge economic benefits for the City. Heavy vehicle traffic will also be reduced from the Wagga Wagga CBD area and the new route has the potential to save up to 36 minutes, or 21 kilometres, on a roundtrip.
