A Plaza area is a space for socialising and toilet facilities including adult change room and baby changing facilities. The creation for this space will be user friendly open space area adjacent to the main bus interchange terminal. The plaza will be a focal point for the Vaughan Street Shopping Precinct and bus interchange.

The creation of an eight bay bus interchange will provide Shepparton with a central, user friendly public transport hub with direct access to the CBD, train station and other major destinations within Greater Shepparton. The bus interchange will operate on both sides of Maude Street for north and southbound traffic.
The works for this activity include:
This stage will be funded by Greater Shepparton City Council and from the Federal Government Building Better Regions Fund. Works will begin in April 2021.
The proposed new streetscape will beautify the pedestrian and vehicle link between the CBD, Vaughan Central Shopping Precinct and one of Shepparton’s most popular recreational reserves, Victoria Park Lake.
Landscaping will make the area more attractive, the design will enhance the road safety with parallel car-parking and automated traffic lights to ensure CFA has direct access to arterial roads when required in emergencies.
The works include:
Streetscape upgrades will be completed in various stages to minimise the impact to businesses. Vaughan Street to Rowe Street was completed and re-opened to traffic (including Rowe Street) at the end of July 2021. Work is currently underway between Rowe Street and High Street.
This stage was funded by Greater Shepparton City Council and from the Federal Government Building Better Regions Fund works occurred from February to April 2021.
A signalised intersection at Vaughan Street - Maude Street improves traffic regulation in a high pedestrian area. Traffic investigations during the concept phase of the Bus Interchange design highlighted the need for more efficient and safer traffic movements for vehicles and pedestrians.
The new signalised intersection creates a safer environment for a heavy traffic intersection. The existing single lane roundabout has been removed and replaced with signals. The works include:
The intersection of Maude and Vaughan Streets is now open to traffic on three of the four approaches. Local contractor Jarvis Delahey Contractors (JDC) commenced works in February and this is an important milestone for the overall Maude Street Revitalisation Project.
Maude and Vaughan Street roundabout will be upgraded to a signalised intersection. Works will include:
Vaughan Street to High Street upgrade works will include:
All services located in Maude Street, where required, will be replaced as the first activity onsite. This includes water mains, power and gas. The timing and sequencing of these works will be subject to scheduling by the respective service authorities. Restrictions related to COVID-19 may have impacts on the scheduling of the works. The schedules will be adjusted as required.
Once the service upgrade works are complete Council will commence work on the Maude and Vaughan Street intersection upgrade.
Following completion of the intersection upgrade the works on the section of road between the intersection and High Street will follow.
Service upgrade works will commence in the coming months with the water main relocations expected to occur in July 2020, followed by power upgrades and gas main relocations. More detailed schedules will be available once agreements are finalised with asset owners.
Civil works on the intersection are scheduled to begin later this year following the appointment of a lead contractor. More detailed schedules for these works will be made available including commencement and completion dates once the contractor has been engaged.
The remaining stages of the Maude Street upgrade from Vaughan to High Street will begin construction now the intersection of Vaughan and Maude Street is complete. These works commenced in April 2021.
There is expected to be minimal traffic disruption during the initial service relocation works (power, water and gas). Each contractor will have a traffic management plan to implement and we will communicate that with stakeholders.
During the main civil works, sections of Maude Street between Vaughan Street and High Street will be closed for extended periods of time, and these closures are likely to be staged into north of Rowe Street and south of Rowe Street. More detail on staging of the works and road closures will be made available after appointment of the lead contractor.
Businesses and residents along Maude Street will have access to their properties during the works, however some access will be via temporary routes. Pedestrian access will be maintained during the works, however will alter as works progress.
No. Council will schedule works to avoid major construction from 30 November 2020 until 3 January 2021.
Jarvis Delahey Construction (JDC) was appointed to undertake the roadworks and streetscape works. This contract was awarded by Council at the September 2020 Ordinary Council Meeting.
The service relocation works will be completed by contractors on behalf of the service authorities and in conjunction with Greater Shepparton City Council. These contracts will be separate from, and in advance of the lead contractor.
Parking will be available in different areas throughout the construction period. Once construction is completed, parking will be available along the sides and centre of Maude Street. The removal of the old bus interchange will create additional parking. Parking will also remain available along Rowe Street and in the off-street car park between Rowe and High Streets, as well as the off-street parking available south of Vaughan Street. There are currently 50 parking spaces. The new layout will include 52 car parks including 2 x accessible car parks. Parking restrictions will be in place and ticket machines will be installed as part of these works.
Two disabled parking bays will be provided in front of the Shepparton Centre Pharmacy upon completion. Please note that there are four existing disabled car parks in front of Coles/Kmart, five in the Rowe street car park, two at the new Maude Street public amenities building, four in the shade sail carpark opposite Coles/Kmart and a further two outside the blood bank.
The reason for the location of the two in front of the pharmacy is to ensure that disabled access is available on both the eastern and western side of Maude Street, as well as north and south of the surrounding shopping precinct.
The trees will be removed and replaced with new trees during the construction. The replacement of the trees allows for the new trees to be located to align with the overall layout of the plan and also provides the opportunity to install tree cells which ensures the roots are appropriately contained and avoids damage to infrastructure. It also provides a better environment to establish a healthy mature tree.
There may be short interruptions to services as they are upgraded which will be communicated by the relevant authorities. Your waste will continue to be collected; however the location of where you leave your bins for collection may alter during the works. More information will be provided on these aspects during the works period.
As part of Stages 3&4 works include the upgrade of the roundabout located at Maude and Vaughan Streets to a signalised intersection and the buses are not able to utilise the new interchange until this intersection is upgraded.
