Some unusual new road markings appearing around Dunedin's city centre are part of the $60million central city upgrade project.

Acting Dunedin City Council transport group manager Nick Sargent said the chevrons were survey markers.

"They have been painted on some central streets this week as part of the central city upgrade project to enable contractors to get accurate street dimensions as part of information needed for the design phase," he said.

"The survey work will be carried out overnight this week and the markers will remain temporarily in place while the captured information is confirmed."
