MP Roma Britnell has issued a rally cry to the community - stand up for your fair share of roads funding.
The South West Coast MP, who is also the opposition spokeswoman for rural roads, said now was the time for the south-west community to come together and demand funding from the state government to fix the "vital road networks".
She has launched a petition for people to sign, calling on the state government to provide funding for the Princes Highway west from Colac to the South Australian Border, but also for key freight routes and arterial roads.
She said the community had proven what it could achieve when it stood together.
"This week we are celebrating the tenth anniversary of our locally based air ambulance helicopter - that would never have happened if it hadn't been for the strong local campaign that forced the government to listen," she said.
"I'm asking the people of the south-west to rally again to get action on our roads. Join me in saying enough is enough - we will not be ignored any more.
"Dan Tehan and the federal government have contributed $140 million to get a start on fixing our roads. But so far the state government has provided nothing for the Princes Highway.
"These are state controlled road assets, they are the responsibility of the state government. They have a duty to provide funding and they cannot expect Canberra to pick up the whole tab."
She encouraged people to contact her office, collect a petition and fill it with signatures. Her push comes as it was announced the state government would establish a dedicated road safety office.
