As Greater Shepparton grows so does the traffic. Our city is growing along a north-south corridor. As our population expands so does our need for safer and better transport routes and other infrastructure.
Council, in collaboration with state and federal governments, is working on a number of intersection and road upgrades to reduce travel time, make roads safer, provide safer cycling routes and to ease congestion in and around Shepparton, in particular.
One of the major travel corridors north-south is Welsford Street, which is unable to cope with the increase in traffic without major infrastructure investment.
Council has been working on a staged approach to upgrade the road as funding becomes available. To date Council has completed three stages of a six stage project.
