District residents had the chance to voice their opinions on stage two of Shepparton’s regional rail program at an information session on Saturday.
Rail Projects Victoria, which on behalf of the Victorian Government is delivering the upgrade, used the session to inform residents about the planning involved in the $356million upgrade.
Shepparton resident Doug Johnson attended as he has watched other regional Victorian towns transform after installing modern railway lines.
‘‘I lived in Ballarat years ago, so I understand the process that has gone on with their train lines in the last 30 years. I would like to see the same process here,’’ Mr Johnson said.
Residents talked to Rail Projects Victoria staff about the environmental and historical assessments that will take place before the upgrade and had the chance to take part in a survey.
