Roadwork signs should be large according to rescue units in the Whakatane district, following two incidents, when  two women  within minutes of each other skidded off the road in the Ohiwa harbour on a corner in Wainui between Ohiwa and Kutarere.

The first woman arrived and skidded on shingle and not long after another woman did the same thing and flipped her vehicle in the shallow waters.

Both women escaped from their ordeals with no injury, but the reasons for their accidents are being investigated.

Me whakarahi i nga tohu whakatika huarahi hei nga korero a te hunga kaitinei ahiahi i roto o te rohe o Whakatane. Ta te mea, he meneti noa iho ka takahuri nga wahine tokorua i o raua waka whenua i tetahi mahinga kohatu i tetahi kokonga i Wainui tera wahi kei tua atu i Ohiwa e ahu ana ki Kutarere. I tae te wahine tuatahi ki te kokonga mahinga kohatu a rereti ki te taha moana o te whanga o Ohiwa ka taka iho nga meneti kua pera ano tetahi atu wahine ka rereti ki roto i te whanga moana. Hei nga korero a nga wahine tokorua kihei raua i kitea he tohu e whakatupato ana i a raua. Hoi ano ahakoa te aitua waka whenua kare nga wahine tokorua i whara engari ano te take raua i reti i te huarahi ki te moana hahaka ai.
