Athy Municipal District Councillors have been told that the completion date for the Athy Southern Distributor Road is two years beyond that originally stated.
The Senior Engineer issued an up-date at the MD's monthly meeting.
Kildare County Council's consultants, according to Cllr. Mark Wall, told them that "an indicative completion time for the road was the 3rd Quarter of 2020".
Yesterday, councillors were informed "this could be 2022."
Councillors have been told that funding and staffing are not issues.
A specific timeline for the road's construction will be issued in January.
However, Cllr. Wall is calling on Kildare County Council to clarify the relevant time-frames before that.
