Meanwhile, our routine maintenance crews will continue to monitor the roads and complete priority resurfacing and patching works throughout the year to help keep communities connected.

Every year, Department of Transport and Planning (DTP) crews mow roadside grass to prepare for the fire season. DTP undertakes a roadside mowing program that meets obligations to prepare for the fire season and to address safety issues. 

Roadside mowing was completed across the Loddon Mallee in December 2023.

If you see any hazards on our roads, please report them to the VicRoads Traffic Operations Centre on 13 11 70, open 24/7. In an emergency, call Triple Zero.
