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…

A special meeting this week for the Community Connector Fiona Blick, who caught up with the youngest member of the program, Ethan (21).
Ethan has just accepted a role with Greater Shepparton City Council and has moved all the way from Sydney.
He said renting and trying to build a career in Sydney was near impossible, so chose to move to regional Australia where career options abound and rental options are more affordable.
Welcome to Shepparton Ethan 😀🌟

C4GS was thrilled to attend the launch of CPE Constructions', part of the CG&C Group, Zeman Steel beam assembly robot which is capable of assembling and welding steel beams for construction projects.
Managing Director of CG&C Group Damion O'Callaghan is a respected board member of C4GS.
Made in Austria, the robot has the capacity to complete approximately 3000 tonnes of fabricated steel annually.
There are only 10 of these machines in Australia and approximately 100 in the world.
This new technology gives regionally based company CPE Construction the capacity to compete and be a leader in the industry against competitors in Metro areas.
Most importantly, it builds capacity and stops the company losing this type of work to offshore competitors.
With the sophistication of the new machinery CG&C Group expects to add 30 new jobs in regional Victoria.

POLICY TUNE UP SUCCESS
C4GS's recent Policy Tune Up day gathered together some of the region's most successful business people, CEOs and community leaders to brainstorm the issues and opportunities Greater Shepparton will face in the next five years and beyond.
So many fabulous ideas were discussed and developed into recommendations and policy suggestions which will then be used to advocate for our region with all three tiers of government.
C4GS would like to thank all involved for their commitment and enthusiasm to this process - without you this day would not have been the success it was.
