Weeds are great hitchhikers. Their seeds can stick to anything that passes by be it humans, animals or vehicles. This means weed seeds can travel far and wide and easily infest other areas if we don't take action.
The Red Guide Post Program has been continued and managed locally by Wagga Wagga City Council to mark roadsides where a priority weed has been identified at a high risk site. Please avoid driving through or stopping on the roadside with any vehicles or machinery, and refrain from moving stock through these areas.
Currently there are 42 red guide post locations within the Wagga Wagga local government area. Local priority weed species at these sites include:
- Cane needle grass
- Chilean needle grass
- Coolatai grass
- Serrated tussock
- Spiny burr grass
If you need to undertake work within the roadside corridor in a red guide post area please contact Council’s Vegetation Management Team on 1300 292 442 for advice.
