An eagle-eyed Advocate reader today drew the NZ Herald's attention to this recently-erected sign on State Highway 1 just south of Whangarei, or "Whanagarei" as the New Zealand Transport Agency would have it.

Someone at NZTA is undoubtedly cringing at this sign on State Highway 1 directing drivers to "Whanagarei".

A spokeswoman for NZTA said she was investigating and would provide details regarding the misspelled sign's future as soon as possible.

How does this happen?!
