The Wagga Wagga Special Activation Precinct (SAP) has received a boost of a further $137 million from the NSW Government. The announcement was made on-site by the Hon. Wes Fang MLC who was joined by Member for Wagga Wagga Dr. Joe McGirr MP, and the Mayor for the City of Wagga Wagga Councillor Greg Conkey OAM.

The investment will kick-start infrastructure - including roads, sewer, water and electricity services - which will allow businesses to set up in the precinct sooner. This announcement is in addition to the $20.6 million announced in November last year.

The 4,500 hectare precinct capitalises on Wagga Wagga’s location as NSW’s southern gateway and central access to Australia’s richest food and agricultural region, the Riverina. It targets businesses in freight and logistics, agribusiness, advanced manufacturing, innovation, skills and education, and renewable energy and recycling, with a focus on sustainability.
