Wind and rain were the cause of delay to repairs of the walk track Nga Tapuwae o Toi said the Whakatane Council.

The completion date was set towards the end of June but predictions by contractors now set the completion around the middle of July. Nga Tapuawae o Toi is closed to walkers towards the Otarawairere and Ohope beach end.

Whakaporearea ana a Tawhirimatea raua ko Ihorangi i nga mahinga whakatikatika i te ara hikoi o Nga Tapuwae o Toi hei nga korero a Te Kaunihera o Whakatane e tomuri ana nga tangata kirimana ki te whakaoti. Ko te tikanga me mutu nga mahi whakatikatika tata rawa ki tenei Ratapu- ki te toru tekau o Pipiri, engari kua matakite aianei nga kaikirimana ringa raupa ka oti ke a ratau hanga hou i nga ara tiatia hei te waenganui o tera marama o Hongongoi. Hoi ano kei te rahui tonu Nga Tapuwae o Toi kei te wahi o Otarawairere ki te pitonga akau o Ohope.
