Work will get underway on an access road to a popular Fiordland track soon, after it was partly wiped out by floodwaters.

Locals have been calling for the road into the popular Hollyford track to be opened by summer for walkers.

Today, the Southland District Council and Waka Kotahi met with other stakeholders to discuss what to do with the road and finally give the community answers.
