Wagga Wagga’s new $12 million multisport cycling complex at Pomingalarna Reserve was officially opened today.
The complex on the city’s western outskirts caters for competitive and recreational cyclists and features a criterium track, BMX track, jump tracks and pump tracks, cycling education area, velodrome and supporting infrastructure.
Council worked in close consultation with local First Nations women to ensure the development was respectful and representative of Pomingalarna’s significance to Wiradjuri cultural heritage and with stakeholders to deliver a project that met the sporting needs of the community as well as incorporating the cultural importance of the site into the complex.
The complex provides the Riverina with a world-class venue for elite cycling events.
The project was funded through a $7 million grant from the NSW Government’s Regional Sports Infrastructure Fund.
