Construction Law/Clause 8.3 of FIDIC 1999

The clause 8.3 programme is not a contractual document unless so stated in the Appendix to Tender or Particular Conditions. The Employer should have stated any restrictions on working hours or closed periods during the winter in the Appendix to Tender. No restrictions, no obligation Engineer due to the Employer's failure to state those restrictions

This comment may be a bit late.
I agree with Bogdan Oprea's general analysis, however, his last paragraph may not be totally correct. It is correct if the Employer and the Engineer are different parties and the Engineer accept/approves the programme (privacy of contract). If the Employer and the Engineer is the same party, then I would assume that The Engineer (in this case also the Employer) accepts the programme, it would become a contractual document (Employer & Contractor).

Mr Bogdan, with all due respect, your response is plagiarized from Daniel Atkinsons's site. At least have the courtesy to cite the reference!
