Traffic frustrations at a Moorhouse Ave intersection could last a few more days, authorities warn.

There are major traffic delays at the Moorhouse Ave-Madras St intersection, particularly at peak hours.

The Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild Team (Scirt) is relining stormwater pipes under the road, causing the traffic holdups.

Madras St is down to one lane and Moorhouse Ave going east is down to two.

A spokeswoman said Scirt was working on a way to reduce congestion, but delays may last for a few more days.

Motorists were asked to seek an alternative route east or north.
