The Federal Government is chipping in $8.5 million dollars towards the redevelopment of Shepparton's Maude St Mall.

Currently part of the redevelopment will allow slow moving traffic to enter at Fryers Street and exit at High Street.

Greater Shepparton City Council is working with the Shepparton Chamber of Commerce on the final design, it's expected the work will go to tender by the end of the year with construction to start next year.

The Council will match the Federal funding dollar for dollar.

What would you like to see in the final design?
