Headline: Matakohe Bridge beams make the long haul from Auckland

The journey of just over 140 kms usually takes about 2 hours by car but the transporter takes three and a half hours negotiating the route up State Highway 1 and along SH12 to Matakohe. The transporter uses a remote-controlled rear unit, called a jinker, to manoeuvre the 30m beams around tight corners.
