2018/2019 Victorian Budget in the GV

May 02, 2018

Goulburn Valley schools have received a budget boost.

The announcement of yesterday's state budget has left Shepparton and the Goulburn Valley with alot to be positive about in the next financial year. 

Here is the funding we received:

  • $20million towards safety upgrades on two roundabouts on the Shepparton Alternative Route. The funding aims to help the infrastructure safely cater for the high volumes of heavy vehicles on roundabouts at the intersections at Old Dookie Rd and New Dookie Rd.

  • Goulburn Valley schools have received a budget boost on top of the funding to turn the big-thinking Shepparton Education Plan into bricks and mortar. More than $21million will help make sure schools in Shepparton are built and upgraded.

  • In the broader community, Ardmona Primary School, Euroa Secondary College, Seymour College and Tallarook Primary School will each receive upgrades as part of an investment in education across the state.

  • The development of the Munarra Centre of Regional Excellence, is a step closer to becoming a reality after a $23 million funding for the project was announced. The funding is for a purpose built cultural and community centre, aimed at providing pathways to employment and further education for Aboriginal Victorians in the Goulburn Murray region.

  • A ‘‘huge’’ and ‘‘significant’’ $313 million funding will upgrade the long-underfunded Shepparton rail line to nine return services a day.

  • Tongala Community Activities Centre and Tatura Community House will receive neighbourhood house funding. A $21.8 million investment was announced across the neighbourhood house network.

  • Areas such as Shepparton and surrounds will benefit from a boost to palliative care services in regional and rural Victoria. Almost $4 million aims to open care closer to home for those with terminal illnesses.
