A new link road providing shorter and easier access from the main campus to the residential precinct and northern side of campus will be opened at Charles Sturt University in Wagga Wagga on Friday 16 May.
The new 500-metre way connects the round-a-bout on Nathan Cobb Drive, near James Hagan Court, to the new round-a-bout on Valder Way, stretching along the eastern side of the new multi-million student residences. (For exact location see FMCentral or view a PDF version of the map).
The public bus route through campus will change once the new road is opened. Official confirmation of the new route will be advised in the coming days.
The road acts as a spine road stretching from the campus entrance into the heart of the university and provides a corridor for new facilities and infrastructure in the future.
The link road is a long-term investment and part of CSU's strategic plan to improve road infrastructure at Wagga Wagga. The plan has already included resealing of most existing roads and carparks on campus, major upgrade works along Agriculture Avenue and Valder Way and works are underway on the construction of a new road linking the main entrance to CSU's winery
Each road improvement project promotes a healthier and safer campus with dedicated pedestrian and cycle paths and lighting included.
The road will be opened to traffic from 4.30pm, Friday 16 May. The official name of the road will be announced later in the year.
