Police have named a man killed in a single vehicle crash in Christchurch on New Year's Eve.

Thirty-three-year-old Tihi Oterangi Rae Edgecombe of Cheviot died in Spotswood around 9pm on Saturday.

His death contributed to an increased holiday road toll, which police Assistant Commissioner Dave Cliff has called a concern.

Ending at 6am on Wednesday, the Ministry of Transport says the holiday period's provisional road toll is 19, which is up from 12 the previous year, and equals that of 2011-12.
