It could be months before freight can again be moved by rail to and from Northland.

A 35,000 cubic metres slip blocked the main trunk line at Helensville on Auckland Anniversary weekend.

All freight is now being trucked in and out on the province's fragile roads.

Rail and Maritime Transport Union spokesperson Todd Valster spoke to Corin Dann.
