South-west residents are confused by the state government's roadmap for regional Victoria, a survey has revealed.
More than 240 people completed a survey conducted by The Standard, with 65 per cent saying the roadmap was confusing.
"It's not clear at all," wrote one respondent.
"The government has overcomplicated the process," wrote another.
"It a 'road block' not a 'road map'," wrote another respondent.
But not everyone finds the roadmap confusing.
"Simple to understand," wrote one.
"The media is confusing.The virus is confusing.The road map is simple. Follow the rules and use common sense," wrote another.
More than half of the people who completed the survey said they were disappointed they were not allowed to travel in the September school holidays.
"The plan still comes across as city centric. I feel regonal Victoria is being punished for people in Melbourne," wrote one person.
Another said they had family in South Australia who they had not seen in 18 months.
One person said travel should be allowed to regional Victorians.
"We should be opened up. All cases in Warrnambool have come from Melbourne people," the respondent wrote.
But not everyone agreed.
"While it would be good for the tourism operators, we need to keep the areas safe still, especially for those who come from Melbourne and lie as to where they have come from," the respondent wrote.
"Happy not to travel at the moment. Safest to wait so we can enjoy summer and be safer then," wrote another.
"Our tourist industry needs business and if they don't get could end up closing for ever," another person wrote.
