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.

 

Shepparton Bypass

The Shepparton Bypass of the Goulburn Valley Highway was first proposed in the mid-1990s. After many years of no action, the project is back on the agenda.

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.

On Friday Deanne had the pleasure attending a special local celebration. This small group of Sudanese and South Sudanese women are residents of Shepparton, some with mortgages, all with young families, but each has a desire to work in a meaningful job. They have been attending English language classes at St Paul's African House with the classes delivered by Gotafe. Now with these valuable language skills behind them, they would like to study at GOTAFE in 2019 to complete Certificate III in Individual Support (formerly Aged Care), hoping this could lead to employment in the sector. Three of the twelve women will use this study as a pathway to pursue a career in nursing. These ladies have been working in horticulture, childcare and cleaning, but each has a dream that they would like to follow. This program is a stepping stone for them to achieve their dreams. At this graduation each participant received a handbag full of items donated by @Eva May Opportunity Shop Mulwala, Gotafe Shepparton, McAuley Works and Pental Factory Sales. Congratulations to these lovely ladies and everyone involved in such a successful program. It was great to see such big smiles on their faces and a pleasure to be there for their special day.
If you want to get involved or if you have any job opportunities for these ladies please message us here at C4GS and we will pass them on.
