The forum was conducted with support from the Shepparton News and lead by C4GS CEO Lindy Nieuwenhuizen and Chief Correspondent for the Shepparton News Darren Linton.
We are pleased to provide the filming of last night's forum for anybody who missed it or would like a review of the evening.
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.
