Roads affected by wet weather in Victoria will soon be repaired as part of a $45 million government package that will be spent on road improvements.

The investment will provide $20 million for resurfacing works and $25 million for restoration works of roads that were affected by floods in the past two years.

Roads Minister Terry Mulder says the funding will target some of the worst roads in Victoria.

"Spending this money now will ensure savings in the future, before our roads degrade beyond repair," he says.

"During winter months, it is not possible to carry out permanent pavement works due to the wet and cold conditions, so heading into the warmer months Victorians can expect to see a lot of improvements out on the road network."
