More trucks on fragile Northland roads after slip hits rail line

From Checkpoint, 5:27 pm on 2 March 2023

More than 40 extra freight trucks per day will be on the already fragile roads of Northland after a major slip on the region's main rail network.

The North Auckland Line, between Swanson and Whangarei is expected to be closed for months - stopping all rail freight services to and from Northland.

Our reporter Rayssa Almeida went to see the damage.
