A controversial monorail between Queenstown and Te Anau Downs, including Milford Sound, could soon be approved.
Last week, Conservation Minister Nick Smith visited the proposed site at Te Anau Downs.
He announced that official advice from the Department of Conservation and the Hearing Commissioner recommends that he approve the Fiordland Link Experience.
The monorail will cost $200 million and be 43kms long,  becoming the world’s longest monorail.
A number of people and groups are against this monorail, saying that it would ruin some of the world’s most beautiful landscape. The monorail will run outside the Fiordland National Park, except for a very small section.
Dr Smith is expected to make his decision before Christmas.
