Wagga Wagga Commuter Cycling Network
Council is undertaking the development of a 51km network of dedicated cycle paths which when complete will criss-cross the city and provide residents with a safe, alternative transport option for commuting.
The $12.81M project includes five complete cycling networks which will link the outer suburbs with the central business area and end-of-trip facilities.
Dedicated city-wide cycling and sporting facilities are designed to improve health outcomes, enhance the liveability of the city, as well as attract new visitors to the city for sporting and recreational opportunities.

Wagga Wagga Multisport Cycling Complex
The Wagga Wagga Multisport Cycling Complex (MSCC) project is a regionally significant multi-use facility to be developed at Pomingalarna Reserve, located 4km from the Wagga Wagga CBD.
Wagga Wagga's five cycling groups collaborated with Wagga Wagga City Council in considering the future development of cycling facilities and share a common vision to progress cycling in the city.
The multisport complex will cater to cycling clubs, community members – both cyclists and non-cyclists - in a safe environment away from suburban and main road traffic.
In addition, the Cycling Complex was planned to provide appropriate infrastructure and facilities to host regional, state, national and international events.
