Site investigations – Wagga Wagga 15 July to 10 October 2024

We plan to undertake site investigations within and adjacent to the rail corridor in and around Wagga Wagga from 15 July 2024 to 10 October 2024. These investigations are to identify and locate utilities and does not mean approval has been given for major construction to begin on the Albury to Illabo section.
