Traffic is backed up after a car hit a lamp post near Poike this morning.

Emergency services were called to the scene of the crash about 7am.

A St John spokesperson said a man lost control of his car at the Poike Rd and State Highyway 29 intersection and knocked a pole down.

The man was not injured.

NZTA advised that the westbound lane was still blocked and long delays should be expected.
