ROADWORKS on the Mount Lindesay Highway near Cryna are expected to continue well into next year, depending on weather impacts in the meantime.

A sign near the impacted section of highway has warned motorists to expect long delays in coming weeks.

The road works started in April.

Norco manager Darren Uppington said he was pleased the road was being upgraded and understood that wet weather could influence the schedule.

However some customers to the store on Thiedke Rd were frustrated with delays.

"How it used to be, it was hang on to your steering wheel and wonder which side of the road you would end up on," he said.

"Everyone's been having a whinge but it's funny they don't seem to mind the line up at Maccas or the drive-in bottle shop."

A spokesperson for Transport and Main Roads said improvement works on Mount Lindesay Highway, between Cryna and Ferguson roads were being delivered in two stages.

"Rehabilitation, wide centre line treatment, shoulder widening and audio tactile line marking is expected to be complete next month (mid December)," the spokesperson said.

"The second stage, including upgrading Cryna Road intersection with a designated, channelised right turn, slip lanes and upgraded street lighting is scheduled to start in January."

TMR said recent wet weather had impacted the schedule and work was currently expected to continue until March, weather permitting.
