POWERCOR has cleared the power line and the issue is resolved.

Police at the scene said the power line came down after a branch broke off a tree and hit it.

A City of Greater Bendigo worker was driving past when they noticed the fallen line.

The worker put down cones and directed traffic until emergency services arrived at the scene.

The fallen line caused some sparking, but no fire occurred.
