Commuters heading south into Christchurch this morning may be delayed after an accident in Belfast.

A police spokesman said there had been a crash at the intersection of Main North Rd and Styx Mill Rd.

He said the two-car accident had happened about 7.30am. There did not appear to be any injuries.

Christchurch Transport Operations Centre (CTOC) said southbound traffic was unable to turn right and traffic was backing up towards Northwood.

CTOC recommends drivers take either Johns Rd or Northcote Rd to avoid the accident area.

There has also been an accident near QEII involving a motorcyclist. The police spokesman said the accident happened about 7.50am and it was not yet known if there were injuries.
