State Highway 1 has reopened following a truck crash south of Christchurch.

The truck collided with a parked car in the Canterbury district of Burnham about 5am today.

The north-bound lanes between Dunns Crossing Rd and Burnham Rd were blocked and SH1 was closed for some time while heavy vehicle removal equipment was brought in to shift the truck.

No one was injured, but the road was inaccessible for a few hours while staff work to clear the scene.
