Motorists are being asked to drive with care in Canterbury, as debris and trees still need to be cleared from the roads following severe weather.

The New Zealand Transport Agency's journey manager for the Canterbury region, Lee Wright, told Morning Report the strong wind warnings have been lifted.

She said contractors will begin clearing the roads this morning.
