A man killed in a crash in South Wairarapa on Christmas Day has been named.

Sixty-six-year-old Clifford John Irving of Stokes Valley died just after 7pm on December 25 in a crash between a motorcycle and car on State Highway 2, near the bottom of Rimutaka Hill.

With the official holiday period ending at 6am on Wednesday, police Assistant Commissioner Dave Cliff has called this season's increased road toll a concern.

The Ministry of Transport says the holiday period's provisional road toll is 19, up from 12 the previous year, and equal to that of 2011-12.
