Following two stages of community engagement, the draft Borella Road and Riverina Highway Corridor Strategy is now on exhibition. It provides a long-term strategy for the corridor between the Hume Highway and Kerr Road.
Our draft Borella Road and Riverina Highway Corridor Strategy is now on exhibition and we'd like your feedback.
Preparation of the draft strategy has been guided by Stage 1 Consultation in February and Stage 2 Consultation in August. The strategy provides an integrated land use and transport plan that supports the long-term growth of the regionally significant corridor.
The draft strategy outlines a number of proposed improvements to the road corridor, key intersections and adjoining land uses.

The Corridor Strategy project is part funded by the NSW Government.
As Borella Road and Riverina Highway is a State Highway, controlled by Transport for NSW and RMS, we will use the Corridor Strategy as an advocacy document and to seek funding for major road and intersection works. It will also be used to inform our strategic planning processes and capital works program.
A high-level summary of the key proposals from the draft Corridor Strategy include:
All recommendations and actions of the draft Corridor Strategy are unfunded and will require collaboration with other state, regional and local organisations to enable implementation. Delivery is expected to be staged over the 2020 to 2060 timeframe as growth and demand increases and as funding allows.
To assist in illustrating the draft strategies relating to the theme of ‘Access and Movement’, some indicative concepts are provided for key road links and intersections along the corridor (refer Section 9 of the draft Corridor Strategy report). These provide an example layout only, responding to issues raised by the community and are subject to further investigation and detailed design. As a State Highway the ultimate design and implementation may vary and is the responsibility of Transport for NSW and RMS.
Further community consultation will also be undertaken during the detailed design and implementation phase.
Some areas near the East Albury shops and Albury Wodonga Health site have been identified for investigating potential rezoning to support growth and opportunities of the regionally significant health precinct. The areas shown are indicative only and are subject to a separate process that will include further investigations and consultation.
