Greater Shepparton 2022 Floods - What we heard

Considerable work continues to fully understand the precise impact of the flooding in Greater Shepparton. As an indication, it is estimated that approximately 1-2% of houses in Shepparton-Mooroopna experienced above-floor flooding and at the peak of the flood there were more than 800 road closures across the Goulburn Murray region.

This report aims to inform possible improvements to Greater Shepparton’s flood response capability, but it also considers how our region can better prepare and respond to future widespread/state-wide events like the 2022 floods.

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…

There are very few occasions where I have reflected on Australia Day and what it represents. Growing up on a farm, few public holidays had any impact on the daily routine, and if they fell during school holidays – with no day off school – they barely registered in our thinking. The 1990s was the…
