The Victorian Farmers Federation says after years of lobbying, the establishment of a permitted road train network on key arterial roads throughout the Wimmera will be a huge win for farmers.
Major roads incorporated in the network include the Calder, Henty, Western and Borung Highways.
Grains Group President Ashley Fraser said the establishment of the permitted network would mean a signficant boost to the efficient movement of grain and hay.
"For the first time growers will be able to move grain and hay within the Wimmera by road train, outside of drought," Mr Fraser said,
"This will allow farmers to not only continue to access vital interstate markets, but transport grain and hay within western Victoria more efficiently."
Mr Fraser said it was a real game changer for many Wimmera farmers and transporters.
The VFF have been lobbying for the change, since the creation of the drought road network.
Mr Fraser said announcement comes after close collaboration between the VFF and Department of Transport to make the proposal a reality.
"The Department of Transport should be congratulated for listening and acting in the best interests of this incredibly important agricultural region," he said.
"We look forward to working with Department of Transport on increasing access for high productivity freight vehicles and to improve the efficient movement of food and fibre throughout Victoria."
