The Otago Regional Council, Queenstown Lakes District Council and Transport Agency are exploring the business case for the ferry.

Regional council chairman Stephen Woodhead said the lake could become a natural highway for commuters.

The group is holding workshops in Queenstown and developing a draft business case.

The plan is expected to be finished in late April and will be followed by consultation.
