A driveway at the centre of a longstanding dispute between former All Black Marc Ellis and his Waiheke Island neighbour appears to be complete.

Jazz singer Briar Susanne Ross has been in a dispute with Ellis over the construction of his driveway at his Matiatia holiday home since July 2014.

Ross sent the Herald a photo of Ellis' driveway today which appeared to show it is complete.

Ellis declined to comment when contacted by the Herald.


Ross is set to appear in the Auckland District Court on March 15 facing a charge of causing intentional damage.

Soil had been dumped on the driveway and a stone wall was badly damaged.

She has pleaded not guilty to the charge.
