A new link road at Charles Sturt University in Wagga Wagga, connecting the main entrance to the CSU winery and cellar door was officially opened on Friday, September 19.
The road creates an important link to University teaching, research and business.
These include The National Wine and Grape Industry Centre, CSU's School of Agriculture and Wine Sciences and CSU's Cellar Door for winery tastings and sales. Each delivers high value research, education, training and promotion for CSU.
The road improves access to these areas for University staff, students and visitors.
Work on the 500-metre stretch of road started in March, 2014. The road features a bitumen seal, kerb and guttering and CSU signage and cost $1.3 million to construct. In addition, and like previous road projects on campus, sustainability has been a key factor. This new road features a dedicated shared pedestrian and cycle pathway and a lay-by to a RAAF monument on the western side of the road.
The opening of the link road is the last of a number of new roads or road improvement projects to be finalised at CSU in Wagga Wagga in recent times. The upgrade Agriculture Avenue and the new link road Bangala Way were both opened in May, 2014.
