Significant delays on Calder Freeway

MOTORISTS travelling south along the Calder Freeway from Bendigo have experienced significant delays, with traffic coming to a standstill.

Traffic has been banked up from the turnoff to Castlemaine and road resurfacing appears to be the cause of the congestion, with one lane closed.

One motorist said traffic was stopped for some 15 minutes, before road workers let it begin moving again.

He said traffic had been slow-moving from the Ravenswood interchange.

The VicTraffic site does not display any scheduled roadworks at that location.

Further down the road, the New Gisborne exit ramp at Station Road is closed for five weeks.

More to come.
