TRAFFIC has been bought to a standstill on one of Perth’s main roads this morning.

The Mitchell Freeway’s left lane has been closed southbound near Powis Street in Mount Hawthorn due to a breakdown.

Traffic is extremely heavy in the area, starting near Karrinyup Road and stretching down to the source of congestion near Powis Street.

Main Roads have advised early morning commuters to allow for extra travel time if coming from north of the river.
