Several accidents around the city have disrupted traffic this morning.

A contractor working in Deans Ave cut a gas main about 8.45am this morning, causing traffic to back-up along the busy route.

The incident occurred between Riccarton Rd and Freyberg Ave but the main has now been repaired.

In Marshland, a van rolled onto its roof in Hills Rd, between Langes and Prestons roads, about 8.15am.

No-one was injured but police were at the scene helping to recover the vehicle.

In a third accident, St John ambulance staff treated a young man for minor injuries after two cars collided at the intersection of Kirks and Main South roads about 9am.

St John took a man in his 20s to the Riccarton Clinic.

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
