What do you think of the thousands of extra truck trips between Auckland and Northland?

Denise Piper Reporter from Rodney Times

There are safety and congestion fears for the road north of Auckland, because a container ship diverted to Northland will result in nearly 2700 more truck trips before Christmas.
Whangārei’s Northport has agreed to unload 1340 containers off the ship Constantinos P, due to congestion at Ports of Auckland, but National Road Carriers is warning this means 2700 extra truck trips between Marsden Point and Auckland. Are you concerned about these extra trucks?
