Road Closures & Works

Wagga Wagga City Council is responsible for the maintenance of all local roads, whilst RMS is responsible for the maintenance of all major roads and highways.

When works are being carried out, sometimes Council has to close a road for the safety of both the public and our workers. Also, roads are sometimes closed for special events, or in emergency situations, such as road accidents or flood.

Current road closures:
