The Victorian Government has committed planning funding towards the Bypassing Shepparton projects, which includes Shepparton Bypass Stage 1, Shepparton Alternate Route and upgrades to Ford and Wanganui roads. The location of each project is shown in the map below.

We're responsible for the planning of all 3 projects.

Current status

We've completed various technical studies to understand the impacts and benefits of all 3 projects.

These studies have informed the development of a Business Case which was finalised in December 2020 and submitted to the Commonwealth Government for consideration.

Community and stakeholder engagement

Regional Roads Victoria carried out consultation with the community for the Shepparton Bypass Stage 1 in 2018. We thank the community for your contribution and we’ve used this feedback to inform our planning.

A Project Liaison Group (PLG) was established during the initial planning of the Bypassing Shepparton projects with representatives from various relevant stakeholder groups including Council, relevant Victorian Government agencies, key environment and community groups and local landowners. The feedback received from the group informed our planning and the development of the Business Case.
