The pole was taken down yesterday, as shown at right.
Designs for the work had the pole next to the kerb, but the location of underground services resulted in the pole being placed in a different position, a Dunedin City Council spokesman said.
This had occurred without consultation and the pole would be repositioned at the contractor’s cost, he said.
Mistakes sometimes happened and the priority was to fix them as soon as possible, he said.
The traffic lights are part of a project to create a harbour arterial route during construction of the new Dunedin Hospital.
