I hope the customers can be found and the port link is constructed
There was some talk a while ago about the Northland Regional buying some specialised low floor wagons that would allow high cubes through the tunnel and leasing them to Kiwirail. The intention being that they would be used to build up demand so that eventually a case could be made to fix issues permanently.
