Waitaki District Council roading manager Michael Voss said he would not comment on an updated completion date for the project to reopen the road until after a meeting with council contractor SouthRoads in the next "couple of days''.
But he said the council's assets group activity report for this month - which notes an additional culvert is to be "thrust-bored'' parallel to the existing culvert under Westview Dr and the Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail embankment to provide additional flood protection - had changed the work programme.
Last month the Otago Daily Times reported the road was expected to reopen by the end of this month.
