The Victorian Government is upgrading the Shepparton Line to deliver more reliable services and allow modern VLocity trains to travel to and from Shepparton for the first time.
The VLocity is the newest and fastest train in the V/Line fleet, and has improved features including mobile signal boosters for better phone coverage and better accessibility for people with prams or mobility aids.
A new stabling facility is required to house these trains, which are longer than the current classic fleet.
Rail Projects Victoria conducted a detailed analysis of suitable locations for a stabling facility. This process identified the proposed site in an industrial area approximately three kilometres north of Shepparton Station, which is bordered by industrial, farming and urban growth zones as identified in the Greater Shepparton Planning Scheme.
Shepparton locals are invited to provide their feedback on the new stabling facility by completing an online survey, or book a time to speak with the project team, at bigbuild.engage.vic.gov.au or by calling 1800 105 105 by Thursday 15 October.
Stage 2 of the Shepparton Line Upgrade will begin construction later this year and is targeted for completion in late 2022.
