On Monday it was announced that any essential workers crossing the Auckland border would need to have a test and they would need to have that test before midnight Thursday.  

On the quiet it's been changed to midnight Thursday...next week.  

It's a big win for the freight industry who were warning that this would be unworkable.  

Nick Leggett, the chief executive of the Road Transport Forum says these extra days are “incredibly important.”
