Works to make Salerie Corner in Guernsey safer for pedestrians and cyclists will go over budget.
It's because new lights, CCTV cameras and railings are being installed, which were not part of the original plans.
Infrastructure's President says as the project progressed the team realised 'additional measures' were needed.
It will also now take longer to complete after staff sickness and restrictions on overtime.
The work was initially estimated to cost around £50,000, although it is not yet known how much will now be spent on the project.
