VICTORIA’S wettest September in a century will impact roads in Mildura and across the state for months to come.

VicRoads crews are out in force undertaking repairs across the state, including Sunraysia, after the wettest September recorded since the Mildura Airport weather station opened 70 years ago.

The 93.6mm recorded in September this year was more than three times the long-term average for the month in Mildura, which is now 27.5mm.
