A main northern commuter route out of Christchurch is closed after a head-on crash between a truck and four-wheel drive. 

Emergency services were called to the incident on Marshlands Rd, just north of the Prestons Rd intersection, just before rush-hour at 4:30pm. A police spokesman said the driver of the 4WD was trapped in the vehicle as a result of the crash and had to be cut out by firefighters. 

The man was taken to Christchurch Hospital with serious injuries. 

The police spokesman expected the road to remain closed until about 7pm.

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
