A report commissioned by the Committee for Greater Shepparton about Shepparton's rail services and investment on the line has highlighted historical and ongoing neglect.
The study, released today, shows Shepparton has, on average, four weekday services compared to Bendigo (20), Ballarat (20) and Traralgon (18).
It found trains on the Shepparton line travel at an average speed of 72 km/h, compared with Bendigo (87 km/h), Ballarat (98 km/h) and Traralgon (94 km/h).
Among other findings highlighted include a huge investment ($4.42 billion) in projects that directly benefited the Ballarat, Bendigo, Geelong and Traralgon lines over a 15-year period from 2002 to 2017, but ultimately no major completed capital works projects being funded for the Shepparton line in that time.
