A large washout on the track first happened after a major rain event in May, leaving a large debris fan flowing into the Clutha River and a gaping gully in the cliff face.
While a new track over the debris had been formed, and signs of caution erected by the Department of Conservation, this week’s rain had caused further erosion covering the track once more.
Doc workers were on site clearing and reforming parts of the track yesterday and said despite the erosion, the track remained open.
Senior ranger Annette Grieve could not be reached for comment yesterday afternoon.
