Road to Fox Glacier will not be re-opened

Fox Glacier’s access road will not be reopened following a major landslide that blocked it in February.

The government is contributing $3.9 million to help maintain foot traffic around the glacier.

The announcement was made last week after an engineering report found there was no solution to enable road access to be rebuilt.

Expert believe a new road would cost around $16 million with no guarantee heavy rain wouldn’t cause more problems.

DOC says helicopter glacier trips, snow landings and scenic flights will continue operating around Fox Glacier as normal.
