A beach in Frankton will remain closed until testing shows the water is safe following a sewage overflow.

A 200-metre stretch of beach was closed at the weekend but by Sunday the overflow was blocked, the beach disinfected and signs warning the public were erected.

Queenstown Lakes District Council chief engineer Ulrich Glasner said a manhole overflowed on to the beach near the Remarkables Primary School.

Veolia Water will use CCTV cameras to inspect the pipes.
