Since being elected in 2014 I have worked hard for much needed infrastructure investment in our region.
To date we have had welcome investment of $356 million from the Victorian State Government in our rail services for Stage 1 and Stage 2 upgrades on the Shepparton-Seymour Line; $229.3 million from the State Government to provide much needed stage one redevelopment of Goulburn Valley Health to meet community needs now and into the future; $10M of State funding towards the $50 million Shepparton Art Museum and the $120M commitment by government to the Shepparton Education Plan.
I continue to advocate to ensure:
- The investment in our rail is delivered on time for 2021/22 and 9 daily return VLocity services between Shepparton and Melbourne.
- The delivery of the Shepparton bypass business case and the progressing of the project which will deliver on better safety and freight routes.
- Funding to deliver Stage Two of the GV Health redevelopment.
- Further health investment to establish a Residential Mother-Baby Unit, funding for the Integrated Cancer Centre, Allied Health Hub at Hunter Centre and the Clinical School at GV health.
