ASSEMBLY Questions Without Notice and Ministers Statements SUZANNA SHEED

Ms SHEED (Shepparton) — My question is to the Minister for Roads and Road Safety. The Goulburn Valley Highway Bypass Committee has been lobbying successive governments for years to commit to the construction of the Shepparton bypass, a critical stage in the duplication of the Goulburn Valley Highway to the New South Wales border. The committee has identified that an allocation of approximately $15 million to $20 million will allow the acquisitions and necessary preliminary works to get this project shovel ready. Can the minister advise on the government's position in relation to funding this project, which is vital to my electorate?
