Merv Morris guides an 800kg concrete sheep into place in Jetty St, Dunedin.

The sheep, created by sculptor Josephine Regan, are being used as bollards for a Dunedin City Council project to create a pedestrian-only zone on Jetty St.

The $550,000 project includes bluestone paving recycled from old cattle yards, cycle racks under the bridge spelling out the word "jetty", and the stern plates from Te Whaka  — a ship built in Glasgow 107 years ago — incorporated into a green-wall.

The project is expected to be finished in time for the Vogel St party on October 14.
