A familiar sight on Wellington's streets - another burst sewerage pipe.

Victoria Street in the CBD was closed last night due to the burst pipe - which sent sewage spewing onto the footpath and closing the front entrance to the Wellington Central Police station.

It's understood some sewage momentarily overflowed into the harbour after the burst.

Repairs are due to begin this morning, and the road remains partially blocked.

Acting CEO Tonia Haskell joined Kerre McIvor on the show this morning.
