The Maude Street redevelopment project has received $1.68m of funding from the Federal Government.
Greater Shepparton City Council Mayor, Kim O’Keeffe said “The funding is a vital injection of funds to enable the first two stages of the CBD revitalisation project to proceed as planned. The relocation of the bus interchange, the construction of new public toilets including adult change facilities, and a plaza will create a user-friendly space for shoppers in the precinct.”
The funding from the Building Better Regions Fund is critical to ensure Council can improve the facilities and amenities of this area in a timely manner for our residents and visitors. I look forward to seeing the project progress and thank the Federal government for the funding.”
The master plan and redevelopment of Maude Street included a new bus interchange, plaza and public toilet which will be funded under the Building Better Regions Fund – Infrastructure Projects stream.
The plaza and interchange will happen in four stages:
- Stage 1 – Plaza and Public Facilities
- Stage 2 – Bus Interchange
- Stage 3 – Streetscape – Maude Street (Vaughan to High Street)
- Stage 4 – Signalised Intersection – Maude Street and Vaughan Street
The plaza and interchange will be completed in four stages
The plaza will be a user-friendly open space for socialising, adjacent to the main bus interchange terminal. There will be toilet facilities including an adult change room and baby changing facilities.
The bus interchange with have eight bays and the area will be safer for pedestrians and traffic users. It will operate on both sides of Maude Street for north and southbound traffic.
