NO CHANGES: The Dashing Rocks walkway has been deemed safe.

The Timaru District Council is satisfied the Dashing Rocks walkway is safe and is not planning any changes to it.

Timaru woman Shelley Lurajud was found dead on rocks below the track last week. Police believe she had fallen from the walkway and have referred her death to the coroner.

Council parks and recreation manager Bill Steans said it was an unfortunate case; however, it was not the norm.

Fences were already up in high-risk areas, he said.

''When people keep to the path they are fine.''
