From Checkpoint, 5:56 pm on 4 August 2020

Truckies and local leaders are at breaking point over a dangerous highway between Napier and Taupō, where eight people have been killed in the last twelve months.

They say government ministers and Waka Kotahi - that's the transport agency - aren't listening to their pleas for change and safety improvements.
