A sharp-eyed reader of The Press has spotted a large-scale typo in Cathedral Square.

The Christchurch City Council "no stopping" sign went up with a glaring spelling mistake, adding an extra "r" into Cathedral.

A council spokeswoman said staff were looking into how the sign got through without anyone picking up the mistake.

The misspelt sign has been in Cathedral Square for about four weeks.

A worker was seen removing the sign this afternoon, and the council said it would be replaced as soon as possible.

How do you feel about the city's first anchor project, the Avon River Precinct?

Fantastic. It will transform the city

Ambivalent. The city needs more than a river precinct to recover

Not impressed. The design narrows the river
