Heavy rain has caused a second landslide on Ferndale-Strzlecki road.
The new landslide is approximately 400 metres from the existing one.
The first slip occurred early this month and no estimate of when the road will reopen was made.
Motorists are advised to detour via Grand Ridge Road.
The Australian Bureau of Meteorology says 48mm of rain has fallen in the area in the last 24 hours.
Baw Baw Shire Council Mayor Diane Blackwood said maintenance has been delayed by bad weather.
“Along with everyone else, we are praying for a break in the weather so that our roads are not continuously inundated with water and we can carry out our planned road works,” Cr Blackwood said.
