Emergency gas works in Christchurch caused long delays on key routes in Christchurch on Thursday.

And the disruption is set to continue today.

Road users were caught in queues all day yesterday due to a lane closure on the Christchurch bypass, Fountain Way and Barrack Road.

The road is the main route through the town.

The lane closure is for work by Southern Gas Networks.

It is expected the lane closure could remain in place on Friday, according to a live travel map.

Local councillor, Simon McCormack said he is attempting to get more information.
