TRAFFIC is building up on Golden Four Drive after a garbage truck has taken down powerlines on it's routine rubbish collection.

It is believed the truck knocked down the wires around 12 noon on Bielby St on the corner of Golden Four Drive, Tugun.

Energex said the truck was now tangled in the powerlines with live wires caught on top of the truck.

"The wires are being treated as live and we have a report that the driver is still in the truck," the spokesman said.

"We have no reports that any power is out."

The Queensland fire service and police are assisting and Energex are on route to the scene.

More to come.
