A Port Campbell resident's anger over the state of the roads he uses everyday has welcomed news from the Minister for Roads and Road Safety.
Caleb McKenzie spoke to The Standard on Thursday and said the Cobden-Port Campbell Road and the Lavers Hill-Cobden Road were in desperate need of repair.
"The soil moves under these roads and they need to dig 10 feet down with an excavator, fill in with rocks and fix them properly," he said.
"They're dangerous and there's parts were you're almost thrown out of your seat."
Minister for Roads and Road Safety Ben Carroll announced on Friday a $32.8 million program through the Building Works package which will prevent landslips and support jobs on the ground and in the supply chain.
The program will include works on key routes including Princes Highway West, Colac-Lavers Hill Road, Deans Marsh-Lorne Road, Cobden-Port Campbell Road, Timboon-Nullawarre Road and Timboon-Colac Road.
"We're keeping regional tourism and communities thriving - these upgrades are on key routes that connect tourists to some of the state's most-visited tourist hotspots like the Twelve Apostles and Port Campbell," Mr Carroll said.
Member for Western Victoria Gayle Tierney welcomed the program.
"These upgrades are not only making our roads safer and more reliable - they're also supporting jobs across our region," she said.
The landslip prevention works are expected to commence within the next six months and are scheduled for completion before the end of the 2020/21 financial year.
