A FALLEN street light has caused congestion on a major road in Edgewater this morning.

Ocean Reef Road has been reduced to a single lane westbound at the Mitchell Freeway due to the fallen pole.

The incident was first reported just after 6am this morning and initially caused congestion in both directions.

However, Main Roads have advised they have cleared the pole eastbound, but the  central lanes westbound are still blocked and any commuters must allow extra travel time.
