WORKS on the Lyell Highway near the Sorell Creek cherry farm appear to be taking longer than expected. Roads Tasmania initially advised that work would be carried out between June 4-8 to repair damage to the road surface and fix drainage issues.
The project seems to have had a later start than was expected and was further delayed by the Queen's Birthday long weekend. The Department of State Growth now says that this Friday, June 22, is the approximate completion date.
A reduced speed limit is in place and motorists are advised to prepare for frequent lane closures and delays during the hours of 9.30am-3.30pm.
