John Hearsch says Shepparton is ‘today’s poor rail relation’

Leading rail consultant John Hearsch visited Shepparton to address the Committee for Greater Shepparton members. He spoke of the report he co-authored, ‘InterCity’, which explores was regional rail can re-balance population growth and create a state of cities in Victoria. The report identifies Shepparton as ‘today’s poor rail relation’ and proposes that Shepparton could support a population of 150,000 by mid-century, if incentivised by a much improved rail service.
