Roads and intersections in the Riverina region of New South Wales are in for an upgrade after the state government announced a $30 million funding package.

NSW roads minister Melinda Pavey announced the government would upgrade road and intersections on either side of the Gobbagombalin Bridge in North Wagga Wagga as well as widening the Sturt Highway to four lanes over Marshalls Creek

"These two intersections will improve access for road users travelling between the Wagga Wagga CBD and the northern suburbs where there is continued growth in new housing and consistent traffic heading to and from Charles Sturt University," she says.

Geotechnical investigations, concept designs and environmental assessments for the work are scheduled to begin straight away.

The announcement came one day after work started on upgrades to 10.5km of the Princes Highway between the towns of Berry and Bombaderry – scheduled for completion in 2022.
