Colac police highway patrol unit members are on the way to assist with traffic lights flashing amber at the intersection of Murray Street and Gravesend Street.
The lights started malfunctioning at about 7am.
A VicRoads crew is expected to travel from Warrnambool to repair any damage and reset the lights.
It's understood to be raining and windy in Colac and highway patrol unit members are not being knocked over by anyone else to handle the responsibility.
