From Morning Report, 7:19 am on 3 March 2023

The Far North mayor says the cyclone damage in the region's main rail network is heart-breaking. 

The North Auckland Line between Swanson and Whangarei is the main freight network to and from Northland, and is expected to be closed for months because of a major slip. 

Moko Tepania told Morning Report the damage to the rail network is already having a huge effect on the roading system, with dozens more trucks on the roads.
