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.
