Transport Minister Gerry Brownlee has yet to receive a report on the feasibility of a new interisland port at Clifford Bay, near Ward, his spokesman said yesterday.
The study, being done by consultants for the Transport Ministry, is exploring whether the port at Picton should be moved to Clifford Bay. The cost of the study is at least $650,000.
The idea has been floated several times, but previous transport minister Steven Joyce decided early last year that the proposal should be thoroughly investigated and a decision made once and for all.
Mr Brownlee's spokesman said the report was expected in the next two weeks. The business case for the proposed port would then be considered and a decision made.
There was no timeframe set for how long that would take, or when the report would be made public, he said.
