A rotted power pole collapsed across a street in the Wellington central suburb of Thorndon blocking the road during rush hour.

The pole fell onto Tinakori Road on Friday, forcing to be diverted from about 6am.

Wellington Electricity was working to clear the pole but police warned commuters should expect delays during the entire morning.
