The purpose of the Group is to provide advice to Greater Shepparton City Council on the development of the proposed Goulburn Valley Highway Shepparton Bypass. It has no executive function.

Nominations are welcome from freight and transport industry as well as from those representing wider community, social and business interests.

Meetings are held quarterly (or at other times as determined necessary by the Group). The appointments will commence in October 2018 and end in October 2021.
