Work on the Shepparton Line Upgrade has already begun, with $356 million invested in the first two stages of the project – an unprecedented investment in this part of Victoria’s regional train network which has already delivered 10 extra services a week between Shepparton and Melbourne.
The Shepparton Line Upgrade will deliver the best outcomes for passengers along the Shepparton Line and maximise efficiencies while minimising disruption to passenger services.
Rail Projects Victoria is seeking feedback on the draft Planning Scheme Amendment GC174 for the Shepparton Line Upgrade train stabling facility to understand what is important to the local community.
Location of facility
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 identified in the Greater Shepparton Planning Scheme.
The proposed site on Grahamvale Road in Shepparton aligns with the objectives of Greater Shepparton City Council’s master plan for the railway precinct and is supported by key stakeholders.
The location of the proposed stabling facility enables the stabling tracks to be located within the rail corridor. The driver facilities are proposed to be located on privately owned land adjacent to the rail line.
The site has operational and technical advantages over other shortlisted sites and because the site is in an industrial area, it will minimise community disruption and environmental impacts including noise and visual impacts.
Its proximity to Shepparton Station also means no further track upgrades are required.
Rail Projects Victoria will ensure the project is delivered in line with planning approval requirements to minimise any impacts of the facility on the surrounding area as much as possible.
