Frequent flooding, never-ending road works and constant demolition - post-quake Christchurch can be a frustrating city to live in. 

The rebuild has been plodding along for three years, but most agree it is moving slowly with no end yet in sight. And in some areas it looks as if things are getting worse, not better, for frequently tested Cantabrians.

If you could click your fingers and magically fix just one problem overnight, what would it be?

Would you like to see your quake-hit home instantly fixed? Or would you like to see the army of road cones disappear and no more traffic jams?

What about a brand-spanking-new CBD? An end to the misery for water-soaked Flockton residents? No more red zone?

Tell us what the new-and-improved Christchurch would look like if your top priority was taken care of, and why it needs fixing now.

Opinion poll

Is the mayor correct to put libraries, pools and community facilities ahead of the Town Hall?

Absolutely, they're far more important

I think funds should be split between those facilities and the town hall

No, the Town Hall should be rebuilt first

Just demolish the Town Hall completely instead of rebuilding
