The saga of the famed Cathedral Cove walking track in the Coromandel continues, with DoC conceding this week it may never reopen.
The track was closed last February after it was badly damaged by the extreme weather events at the beginning of last year.
Doc is expecting a report back in June, which will give them a better understanding of the state of the land and where a new track can be built.
Locals however, say DoC could have and should have done more to get the track back up and running.
Mercury Bay Business Association spokesman Ray Van Beynen updates Jesse.
