Motorists in the Papatoetoe area are advised to expect delays following an earlier single vehicle crash on Station Road.
The crash occurred around 1.15pm where the vehicle has collided with a power pole near the intersection with Hillcrest Road.
The vehicle’s sole occupant has been taken to Middlemore Hospital in a serious condition.
Power line contractors are required to repair the downed power pole.
