Road repairs and resurfacing works delayed traffic for up to 20 minutes in peak times last week.
The works are complete, but reduced speed limits may remain due to loose stones on the road, VicRoads regional director, Mal Kersting explained.
“We advise motorists that from time to time there may be minor traffic delays through these work sites and to factor in an additional five to 10 minutes for your journey,” he said.
“We thank motorists for their patience and remind drivers to obey the temporary conditions in place for their own safety and the safety of workers.”
The works are part of VicRoads’ program to improve the condition of a number of roads across the region.
The works along Calder Freeway around the wider Gisborne area include road rehabilitation works (digging up and rebuilding) and resealing works to make the road more waterproof, and minor pothole repairs.
As these types of works are best suited to the warmer and drier weather conditions, Mr Kersting advised motorists to be prepared for roadworks particularly between now and April.
