A diesel spill in Linwood has been cleaned up.

The Christchurch City Council was alerted to the spill on the corner of Buckleys Rd and Linwood Ave at 3pm.

Contractors took about three hours to clean the site, which involved laying grit then sweeping it up.

Road users are asked to exercise caution through this area - particularly motorcycle riders and cyclists.

A CCC spokeswoman said the spill was considered minor and posed no further concern.
