Shepparton Rail Upgrade

Shepparton Rail

The Victorian Government has recently announced $313m in its 2018/19 Budget to upgrade infrastructure and enable new VLocity trains to operate on the Shepparton line. This is such a great win for Greater Shepparton.

The Committee for Greater Shepparton calls for stage 2 of the G.V. Health re-development to be funded.

An independent assessment commissioned by the Committee shows that the full stage 2 investment, including mental health and cancer facilities, is likely to cost between $272 million and $374 million. This is on top of the $171 million allocated to stage 1 by the Andrews government in 2016.

Goulburn Valley Health’s buildings are at the end of their life cycle. As positive as the stage 1 funding has been, a commitment to stage 2 is now critical to complete the redevelopment. Comparative analysis of current regional hospital asset value shows that of all major centres, Greater Shepparton has one of the oldest and run-down hospitals in the state– it is time for a new one.

We were very proud to have co-hosted with SPC the official book launch of 'Worth Preserving, 100 years of SPC', which was held yesterday at The Vault.

The launch was hosted by Committee for Greater Shepparton CEO, Sam Birrell and SPC managing director, Reg Weine along with author Jenny Mountstephen.

'Worth Preserving, 100 years of SPC' is an incredibly well researched and written piece of SPC's history. It is a celebration of achievements over 100 years, a revealing insight in the people who established the fruit and canning industries in the Goulburn Valley.

To secure yourself a copy you can head to Collins Booksellers Shepparton - 262 Maude Street, Shepparton or call them on 5822 2679.

Jenny has produced a great record which takes many hours recollecting the events. Pleased to catch up with a lot of old workmates and fruitgrowing friends. In particular Margaret Plunkett (Lenne) We started together on 16th Jan 1961 and had not seen her in decades.
