This question is for the Minister for Roads and Road Safety. In the 2017–18 Victorian state budget $10 million was allocated for early planning and works on the Shepparton bypass.
Can the minister advise what stage VicRoads is at in ensuring that this funding is rolled out and the project is being given the attention and priority it warrants? This is a project that has been a longstanding one in our community, and it is a substantial piece of funding that we achieved in the last budget. The community is very keen to see action in this space.
