A new road safety plan will be developed to promote safer roads for pedestrians, drivers and cyclists in the Warrnambool region.
Member for Western Victoria, Gayle Tierney announced the Andrews Labor Government will provide $17,000 to Warrnambool City Council for the plan.
The council will review existing road safety data and consider what initiatives are needed to make local roads safer.
It will also develop education programs for schools to teach students about how to be safer on roads.
The council was amongst 20 Victorian community groups to receive Community Road Safety Grants in the latest round.
