Should only be medium chaos on Auckland Motorway tomorrow
A convoy of 50 tractors and utes are set to thunder down Auckland’s Queen St tomorrow as thousands of farmers around the country gear up for a “howl of a protest” that will see vehicles parade through urban centres across New Zealand.
Groundswell NZ has organised the protest in 47 towns and cities on Friday.
Pukekohe to Auckland organiser Scott Bright said that 50 tractors would be escorted by police along the Southern Motorway from Drury starting at 9.20am.
The convoy would leave the motorway at Wellesley St, travel down Queen St before going along Beach Rd and rejoining the motorway heading south from Stanley St.
