Camp ground still cut off 7 weeks after floods

Some residents and a popular camping ground in Golden Bay remain cut off by road slips seven weeks after devastating floods across Tasman district and Nelson.

The road to Totaranui was hit by massive slips in December and no date has been set for its re-opening.

The Department of Conservation (DoC) camp at the end of the road is relying on campers arriving by water instead.

Manager Pam Mytton says people are treating it like an island holiday.

DoC is hoping the road can be re-opened in weeks, rather than months.
