A bungle at Delacombe Town Centre’s Cherry Flat Road entrance saw a light tower placed in front of traffic lights.
Ballarat City Council infrastructure and environment director Terry Demeo said council had been working to rectify the issue.
“Powercor has agreed to remove two light poles at the intersection,” he said.
"The poles will be removed in the next week or two.
“The traffic lights will not be operational until the poles have been removed."
Mr Demeo said the developer’s street light designs were completed and installed before council started works to deliver traffic lights at the intersection of Webb and Cherry Flat roads.
