A major power outage struck Auckland's CBD on Friday.

Vector reported two outages in different parts of the central city on Friday afternoon, including Ponsonby and Aotea Square, that affected several traffic signals.

Auckland Transport tweeted at 4pm to expect delays in the city.

Power was restored to most locations at about 5:30pm, and the rest by 8pm. 

Vector is currently investigating the cause of the outage, including a report that an overhead line was down.
