Queenstown Lake District Council deputy mayor Lyal Cocks said at this stage no formal action on the fence was being taken by council.
While there had been informal discussions about the fence, council had ‘‘backed off from it’’, Cocks said.
The bra fence was removed in 2006 by the council but was revived a short time later.
It has also been the casualty of several thefts, with hundreds of bras being taken at one time.
Fence founder John Lee said ‘‘they [those stopping at the fence] are walking up the road and I can see the concern.’’
Installing road signs could alleviate some of the problems, as would reducing the speed limit in the area, which might be done if a proposed whiskey distillery in Cardrona was given a resource consent, Lee said.
The fence was a tourist attraction for the area and several people travelled over the Crown Range, skipping Cromwell, just to see it, he said.
Morgan said installing a collection box to collect funds for breast cancer research had been discussed.
A Cardrona Valley Bra Fence Facebook page has attracted over 650 ‘‘likes’’.
