Whangārei truck convoy: Northport update after ship unloading

From Morning Report, 8:11 am on 11 December 2020

A ship carrying goods destined for Auckland is unloading its goods in Whangārei, as 800 extra truck trips take the goods south over the next week.

Constantinos P was diverted to Northport because of delays in unloading.

The trucks will travel to Auckland via State Highway 1 and across two sections of tricky road in the Dome Valley and the Brynderwyn Ranges.

For the latest from Northport, reporter Louise Ternouth speaks to Corin Dann.
