An enormous number of roads are closed in Christchurch because of liquefaction and road works.

Christchurch City Council says 63 areas of roading are closed and an additional 18 roads have restrictions.

It says an alternative access route for people on Clifton Hill is being arranged and that is expected to be completed by Thursday.

Meanwhile, rocks have been cleared from Evans Pass Road in Sumner.
