Landslip Response and Recovery - Update

There were significant storm events in our region in September and October 2021, which resulted in 40 landslips occurring across a number of roads within the Otways and coastal areas. A map of the landslip locations can be found here.(DOCX, 3MB)

Works Completed to Date

- Geotechnical inspections and risk assessments.

- Traffic management measures to enable continued road access.

- Removal of dangerous trees and debris from roadside.

Next Steps

Permanent embankment stability works will be required for some sites, such as retaining walls and guard rails. The design and construction of these works is being planned and prioritised now, with the focus being on higher risk sites. Council has sought fee proposals for the investigation and design of the high priority sites, with design solutions expected by June 2022.

Until works are implemented on the ground, Council’s priority is maintaining access to properties and the safety of road users. Temporary treatments will remain in place and all of the landslip sites are being regularly monitored for changes to condition.  

All roads impacted by the storms remain open to traffic, including visitors to holiday accommodation.

Please let us know via email at and/or notify Customer Assist on 5232 9400 if you have any questions or notice any changes in the roadside (landslip) conditions, so we can continue to provide a safe road environment.
