Vline Train

Shepparton Rail Corridor Stage 2&3

Advocacy for reliable and frequent passenger rail travel continues to be a priority for C4GS.

Stage 2 of the Shepparton line upgrade is currently taking place, with trenching and boring works continuing. Early works will also continue north of Shepparton station through the industrial estate to Grahamvale Road where the new stabling facility is being constructed.

The new stabling facility will house modern and reliable VLocity trains and will be expanded by an additional 1.1km to enable a 1200m freight train and two six-car VLocity trains to pass each other, making services more reliable. 

Both the federal and state governments have funded the project, with more than $750 million provided in total investment and the creation of 600 jobs.

Stage 3 of the project includes track speed and signalling upgrades between Seymour and Shepparton which will enable faster and more frequent services. This stage is targeted for completion in late 2023.

Goulburn Murray Regional Prosperity Plan

C4GS continues to work with the Kaiela Institue as Plan Champion during the implementation of the Goulburn Murray Regional Prosperity Plan (GMRPP) to ensure this vision of shared prosperity is delivered.

In July 2021, the GMRPP was launched. The Plan is a new and innovative approach to developing a thriving First Nations economy, which will generate new opportunities and shared prosperity for the benefit of everyone in the Goulburn Valley.

The GMRPP was developed in the region, by the region and was inclusively developed by First Nations and non-Indigenous institutions, organisations and businesses throughout the Goulburn Valley working together.

Reflecting on a Nation…

This week, our CEO Linda Nieuwenhuizen has been in Canberra for the Australian Local Government Association's national conference to talk about housing - and specifically the challenges we face in attracting skilled professionals when we can't offer the housing options they would like and increasingly expect.
In a very competitive recruitment market, apartments, townhouses and CBD living can be the factor that determines where relocating professionals choose to move.
Linda discussed the insights we have gathered from our incredibly successful Community Connector Program that has supported almost 700 professionals to relocate to Greater Shepparton since 2021 to take up roles in more than 100 local businesses from law firms and schools to engineering and health.
Linda was joined by local government CEOs and executives from Orange, Quilpie and the Pyrenees who spoke about their local projects and direct involvement and partnerships in land and property development.
