Several hundred people have attended a meeting of the Moorabool Shire Council to discuss concerns on possible contaminated soil being dumped in the area.

It's feared toxic dirt from the West Gate tunnel project will end up near Bacchus Marsh and close to the Ballarat to Melbourne train line.

Council say they need to be properly consulted, need to know the soil is safe and understand the benefits, if any, to the community.
