Remedial work to protect the sand dunes from erosion at Ocean Beach has hit a technical setback.
The Dunedin City Council has pushed back the timeframe for completion after a sand bag was overfilled.
The overstretched bag has since been pulled out and a replacement ordered from Australia.
Acting Group Manager Tom Dyer says the issue will set the work back by a week, with challenging ground conditions also a contributing factor.
He says overall around 90% of the structure is complete and he anticipates work will finish by August the 5th.
