Levee Bank Upgrade
City of Wagga Wagga
The newly upgraded Main City Levee Bank protects Wagga Wagga from a '1 in 100 years' flooding event.
The project included six kilometres of levee bank, of which almost two kilometres required sheetpiling work.
The upgraded levee consists of concrete walls, sheetpiling, earthworks, crib walls and incorporates two spillways for extreme flooding events.
Access to the levee has been significantly improved with disability compliant and smoother ramps at seven locations between Hammond Avenue and Travers Street.
Indigenous artwork has been placed onto the sheetpile capping to highlight the strong link between the Wiradjuri people and the Murrumbidgee River.
