Flooded Korumburra-Wonthaggi Road 

VicRoads contractors believe they have resolved Korumburra-Wonthaggi Road’s drainage issue after ongoing requests from the community. 

Regional Director for VicRoads, Scott Lawrence, said the flooding issues were caused by a blocked drain that has proved to be a problem for years.

“(Korumburra-Wonthaggi Road) is an area where we have had problems with flooding as a result of a blocked drain but hopefully that issue has been set right now”, Mr Lawrence said.

Crews have worked on the problem since last week but it is yet to be seen how the problematic drain works in the months to come.

Several months ago, a motorist became stuck in flood waters along the road and were rescued from their car.

More heavy rain is forecast for this week along with possible flash flooding and severe winds.
