From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:10 pm on 18 February 2014

Regulations, successive governments' love affair with rail and the sheer challenge of building roads through a narrow, wet and rugged country. A new book takes a journey through the history of the road freight industry in New Zealand. Richard Riley, a former president of the New Zealand Road transport Association and the mastermind of the book, 'Road's the Mode: The Story of New Zealand's Road Transport Industry'.
