WESTERN Downs drivers will face delays on one of the busiest stretches of the Warrego Hwy after workers this week arrived on site to commence roadworks.

The site, which is about 10km west of Chinchilla, is one of four sections set to be repaired. 

The works will involve pavement repairs over 12.8km of both lanes of highway at four locations - west of Macalister, west of Warra, east of Brigalow, and west of Chinchilla.

A Department of Transport and Main Roads spokesperson said the works would be completed by early December, weather permitting.

The sites will be under stop-go traffic management and are part of the flood repair program under Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements, which are funded 75% by the Australian Government with 25% from the Queensland Government.
