Highlighting improvements

Staff from a Dunedin electrical firm help install new training lights at the North Ground, Dunedin, on Friday.

New timber poles and longer-lasting, more cost-effective LED lights (below) are being provided at the ground.

The change is part of a wider $600,000 upgrade programme by the Dunedin City Council to replace 60 sports field lights and poles that were in poor condition, because of safety risks identified in a recent audit.

They were both DCC and club-owned lights and poles that were on DCC-owned land.

In April, a DCC spokesman said the work was well under way and the last of the lights and poles would be replaced by July.
