Recently fixed

  • rubbish dumped 1 update
    Just before the Fulton Hogan quarry there are numerous piles of rubbish including 2 mattresses and a baby car seat
  • Carparking causing hazard1 update
    A suggestion is to paint broken yellow no parking lines on the opposite side (airfield side) to Higgins Contractors premises between Pilkington Way & Lodestar Ave roundabout. The grass verge has a pole & wire rope fence on airfield side of road stopping parking on the grass itself but people still park on the airfield side of the road (beside pole/wire rope fence) which narrows down Vickerys road to one lane & thus making it hard for traffic to pass each other etc. Very difficult to pass as an increase of traffic now comes from Lodestar roundabout
  • Corner Vickerys Road/Washbournes Road1 update
    Stretch light marking intersection of Vickerys Road & Washbournes Road is not working.
  • Dumped rubbish2 update
    Mainly car parts dumped
  • Dryer dumped1 update
    Dryer has been dumped on the side of the road
  • pothole1 update
    pothole is getting larger. Its on the intersection of pound/savills but is more on pound rd
  • Dangerous pothole with shingle all over the intersection2 update
    CORNER OF SAVILLS AND POUND RD. This is a dangerous pothole and vehicles slide out on all the shingle that is covered on the 100kph road. This has the potential to have a major fatality if this area is not cleaned and fixed up properly !!!

Old fixed

  • Littering1 update
    A large pile of rubbish has been dumped in the carpark on Heyders rd near the surf club.
  • Truck use disturbances in McCormacks Bay Reserve1 update
    We live at 112 McCormacks Bay Rd.opposite what used to be quiet parkland. For the last year or two it has been used as a gravel loading yard previously to build a slip prevention structure just along the road. Since then it continues to be used for transshipping gravel for other firms often 6 days a week. How long do we who live opposite have to put up with the noise of large articulated trucks unloading and small trucks loaded with a noisy loader. There is also the dust as part of this operation and the many vehicle movemnets in and out of the yard. It has at times been from 6:30am until the evening
  • shingle across intersection of guys/ryans rd1 update
    shingle is all over this intersection
  • 100 conservators rd - road giving way on driveway2 update
    JPM trucks have been driving up and down our street up to 500 truck movements a day have caused our driveway to start collapsing. These trucks are too wide for our roads and have caused serious deterioration on conservators rd
  • Give Way Signs or road markings.1 update
    Hi Any chance of getting some give way road markings on Rosella Street and Ben Nevis ? Having lived in Ben Nevis & now just off Rosella the number of folks who don't give way properly or severally cut the corners when turning into these streets is a shocker. I've witnessed more than a couple of near misses over the years. Alternatively even a "T" painted on the road might stop people cutting the corners, especially when turning off Steadman road. Attached picture shows views from Rosella and Ben Nevis drive looking towards Steadman Road. Thanks Mike
  • Couch left outside property1 update
    I woke up to someone's couch outside our property. I appreciate that someone felt that my house may have required some more home comforts but alas I have perfectly good couch already inside my house. If someone would be so kind as to take away someone elses couch from the front of this Hay Street address that would be great.
  • Potholes appearing repeatingly on this intersection with shingle from trucks turning on the corners1 update
    This intersection is constantly being repaired for potholes. Shingle is strewn all over the road. I hope a motorbike doesn't have an accident on it.
  • Broken verge deteriorating even more 1 update
    This issue was reported a year ago and no one has come out to fix it. The verge is deteriorating even more and its getting alot bigger.
  • Concrete and other rubbish dumping all along guys rd2 update
    There is so much rubbish being dumped along this stretch of road. The concrete has been there for a long time and other rubbish keeps being dumped there. There is also lots of wiring cable in a big coil. All the rubbish down this road will become a fire hazard as we start getting into summer
  • Rubbish dumped1 update
    Rubbish has been dumped on 21 conservators rd in 2 areas. One lot is like a whole trailor load.
  • Streetlight not working2 update
    Streetlight not working near 44 Gosling Crescent
  • Rosella Reserve Tagging1 update
    Tagging on fence near play equipment has been there for over a year. Have seen play ground gear getting painted & checked but no one seems to have done anything about the tagging / graffiti Would be nice to have the whole two fences facing the park painted. (It's the back fences of the two properties corner Masham Rd and Rosella Street. )
  • Polystyrene dumped by/below 299 Mt Pleasant Rd1 update
    Four or more large blocks of polystyrene dumped by or below 299 Mt Pleasant Rd on road verge (see photo). They are breaking up and pieces are spreading up and down both sides of road
  • Assumed blown bulb in street light1 update
    Street light outside 39 whero ave has been blown for more than 2 months. It's very dark at the end of our street and I am concerned about lurking hoodlums in the dark.
  • Smashed bus indicator on bus stop 36033 outside Chch East School1 update
    Electronic bus indicator on pole is smashed.
  • Tagging on wall of Countdown, Buckleys Rd bus stop #408821 update
    Multiple tags on wall of Linwood Countdown, facing Buckleys Rd at bus stop.
  • Pothole Yaldhurst road1 update
    On yaldhurst road,while traveling towards Riccarton, there is a manhole turning into a bigger pothole and traffic generally do a sudden sharp swerve to avoid it, which could potentially cause issues in future. This is at the start of the intersection between the Avonhead left turn and Middlepark right turn
  • Vehicle with No Registration or Warrant3 update
    I bought this property (2/20 Arlington Street) and moved in on 30 January. Since being here there is a vehicle - a white Toyota Corona (Reg GLJ805) with no warrant or registration parked outside on the street. This car has not moved either since I have been here. The street is narrow with cars parked on it and it would also be nice for my visitors to park outside my home. Have spoken with neighbours and nobody seems to know who it belongs to either.
  • Moss growing on the road 1 update
    There is a lot of moss growing on this and surrounding roads. We loose tracktion in our cars and bicycles. I have fallen off my bike while turning into my driveway.
  • Sign knocked off1 update
    At the Woodbury and withells road roundabout, the sign showing Woodbury street (pointing to the left), has been bent and knocked backwards and is not visible until people start turning at the roundabout
  • Graffiti on the wall at 4a1 update
    Vandals have tagged the wall at 4 Landsdowne Terrace
  • Street light is not working1 update
    The street lamp just outside 98 Milns road and at the start of the pedestrian access to John Olliver reserve is not working for quite sometime now. If ti can be fixed, that would be much appreciated thanks
  • Abandoned vehicle with expired registration 5 update
    Honda Accord registration PF4761 parked for months in front of my house. Neighbours no nothing about who it may belong to.
  • Offensive tagging on road sign1 update
    See photo... This tagging has been there for at least two weeks.
  • Broken glass1 update
    Corner of Burnbrae Street and Riverlaw Terrace/
  • Dog signs, New Brighton beach1 update
    In the summer months, dogs are restricted on a small section of the beach either side of the pier. Some of the (very poor) signs advising this say that the restriction applies from 1st December to 1st March. Others state that it applies during the months of daylight saving - so this year would be from September 27th. I think the latter is more likely correct. Could it please be made clear which of these applies, and the faulty signs amended accordingly. Some enforcement of the regulations would also be good to see.
  • Abandoned vehicle left on the street1 update
    White car that's had a frontal collision parked at the Matipo St and George St intersection. License Plate: PU1724 Car registration appears to be over too.
  • Unnecessary temporary traffic management dangerous for cyclists1 update
    The westbound cycle lane on Main Rd in Moncks Bay is blocked by a cone taper “protecting” a Site Exit sign for the Clifton pump station repair worksite. With the cones and sign being hidden around a slight bend, the lack of advance warning of the cycle lane being blocked means drivers may get a surprise when suddenly confronted by a cyclist in “their” lane. There is also no need for Fulton Hogan to have placed the “Site Exit” sign in the middle of the cycle lane, as there is a parking shoulder between the cycle lane and the footpath where it could be safely located whilst still remaining visible. This was previously reported to Christchurch City Council via FixMyStreet (#5564) on 7th May 2015, but has remained there blocking the cycle lane for the last six weeks. Maybe one of the Temporary Traffic Management Coordinators from CTOC could post an update to explain why they have taken no effective action regarding this cycle lane blockage, or alternatively why they consider this site to be acceptable?
  • Another roadworks sign blocking cycle lane1 update
    Traffic Management NZ have blocked the westbound (towards city) cycle lane on Pages Rd between Ottawa Rd & Baffin St with a 30kph/50kph roadworks sign associated with the SCIRT work further down Pages Rd near Breezes Rd. Looks like the sign could have been placed clear of the cycle lane either at the end of the bus bay or on the grassed area on the other side of the footpath (which would still be easily visible to approaching drivers).
  • Cycle lane blocked with no advance warning (& no TMP?)1 update
    The westbound cycle lane on Marriner St is coned off by Fulton Hogan at the Nayland St corner without any advance warning to cyclists or drivers of this closure (unless you consider a “Shoulder Closed” sign as actually meaning that the cycle lane will be blocked!). There also doesn’t appear to be any Traffic Management Plan for this closure (associated with house repairs) on the http://www.tfc.govt.nz/current-conditions/roadworks/ website.
  • pothole 2 update
    Pothole through yellow line marking loading zone opposite the bank on st Asaph Fitzgerald cnr. If a vehicle is parked on loading zone the pothole is directly in cyclists path. Also difficult to spot if you are concentrating on approaching the traffic lights ahead and watching the traffic splitting into two lanes.
  • Heavy Vehicle Parked illegally1 update
    From 3pm May 15 - heavy vehicle MW6642 is parked in Crombie Green. Illegally parked over a fire hydrant. Should there be a fire emergency in the neighborhood there is a major problem! This vehicle is causing a safety hazard as traffic is reduced to one lane - traffic cannot see around it It is NOT displaying any safety lights & is contravening city by laws regarding heavy commercial vehicles parking in a residential street.
  • Heavy vehicle parked overnight and causing safety issue.2 update
    The heavy vehicle as seen in photos park at this residential street address on Thursday 14 May 2015 and as at Friday 15 May 2015 08h30 it has not being moved. It is obstructing the view of the street as we enter it from our driveway and causing a safety issue as we cannot see oncoming traffic, we had two near misses. I have had an issue with the construction contractors working at 1 Richard Seddon Drive, Christchurch earlier this year, (which I did not report as I thought the issue was resolved), when that kept block my driveway with another construction truck. Truck plate number: MW 6642
  • Illegally parked car blocking driveway2 update
    WW9677 illegally parked. I would note: - the car has no current rego or WoF - The car is parked the worng way on the street - The car is parked partially on the footpath - The car is blocking the driveway
  • Mt Pleasant & Main Rd bus stop vandalised2 update
    Glass side smashed to smithereens.
  • Abandoned Vehicle at 61 Carlton Mill Road - Toyota Caldina Reg ZQ12931 update
    A green Toyota Caldina Registration ZQ1293 has been sitting outside our property for over a month now. The car is in rough shape on the right side and has obviously been in an accident. Also the right rear tyre is flat. One window is half way down and the car has a number of parking tickets inside. Registration expired 21/11/2014. Please remove this vehicle.
  • Street lights out1 update
    The street lights down Neill street have been out for the past two morning when I drive down there just after 3am, it's pitch black.
  • abandoned vehicles1 update
    DAU 999 has been parked outside 75 Kingsley street for 6 weeks without any movement CZF 554 has been parked outside 75 Kingsley Street for 2 weeks without any movement This is a Business area where parking is at a premium and it doesn't seem fair that people can abandon their cars
  • Road repair ewquired2 update

  • Street light flickering on and off1 update
    The street light outside our house is flickering on and off Outside 90 Heberden Ave. Sumner

    Large gravel, large & numerous potholes, and extensive flooding are making this section of road nearly impassible, especially to cyclists.
  • Every day the same car is parked in the cycle lane.1 update
    On Barrington St at the intersection with Cobham St. Same car every day parked in the clearly marked cycle lane. Photo says it all.

    Road sign in the cycle path on the South West bound side of Wainoni Road near the junction with Breezes road. Could easily go on the pavement, which is very wide at that point. Road sign is marked 'ISAAC'.
  • Pedestrian Crossing Signal1 update
    The button for the pedestrian crossing on the south west corner doesn't activate the crossing signal.
  • Dirt/mud on cyclepath/walkway1 update
    The Marylands cycleway remains covered in mud at the Annex Road end following work by some contractors laying pipes near the motorway, after they drove vehicles along the path. Can this please be cleaned up? It is quite slippery in the wet.
  • "Beautified area"1 update
    The "beautified area", or whatever you call it, on the corner of oram ave and beresford street. The wooden walkway construction is A) of shoddy construction B) is becoming more and more broken over time, with bits of wood littering the area. The grass has died, the weeds are overgrowing, and the whole area is littered in ciggerette butts and other rubbish.
  • Pothole developing at intersection1 update
    Pothole(s) in road at intersection as you turn left out of Waimea Tce onto Birdwood Ave.
  • Intersection of locksley ave full of potholes along with the rest of the road 1 update
    Intersection of locksley ave full of potholes and the rest of the road is not much better and needs gradding again. Thanks Eastside potholes hunter and group
  • Road fill of large potholes 1 update
    Hi the road here is full of large potholes that need some hotmix in them. The keep filling with water and become very scared out all the time. Thanks Eastside potholes hunter and group

  • Red light bulb blown for weeks at the Gloucester Street Woodham Road lights2 update
    Hi one of the Red light bulbs has been blown for weeks at the Gloucester Street Woodham Road lights. It is if you where driving east towards the bridge. Thanks Sam
  • 2 couches dumped1 update
    Hi there 2 couches have been dumped on the side of the road in the red zone. Thanks Sam
  • Signs blocking cycle lane - safety hazard1 update
    2 roadworks signs on Strickland Street just south of Milton Street are blocking the cycle lane forcing cyclists into the flow of traffic - a safety hazard at such a busy intersection.
  • Safety Hazard - 3 signs blocking cycle lane1 update
    3 road signs are currently blocking the cycle lanes on Strickland Street just south of Milton Street. 2 signs blocking northbound cycle lane (pictured) and 1 sign blocking southbound lane. This presents a safety hazard as cyclists are forced into the flow of traffic to avoid the signs at a busy intersection on a popular school cycle route.
  • Large pot holes that have been here for months 1 update
    Large pot holes that have been here for months and now cars have to drive on the grass which has become mud to get around them.
  • Large rut in road for weeks where work men working 1 update
    Hi there is a Large rut in road at the round about and men have been working here on the new round about but have not fixed it. Can it please have some seal or shingle in it as it is very deep and hard on cars. Thanks
  • Cycle path (Brougham-Barrington)2 update
    The cycle/pedetrian path that connects west-bound Brougham Street with the lane that leads to Barrington Street has a decent chunk of surface missing from near the western end. Can this please be fixed, as it is quite dangerous for cyclists to hit a ridge that high when speeding along? Thanks.
  • Large number of pot holes forming1 update
    Large number of pot holes forming at the intersection of Glenarm Tce and Locksley ave in dallington making driving unsafe.
  • Street lights not working1 update
    Street lights are not working in Barbadoes Street between bridge and Kilmore Street, and along Nova Place
  • Montreal / Hereford temporary traffic management1 update
    The way the left turn lane on Montreal St at Hereford St has been closed forces any person on a bike to merge into the relatively narrow traffic lane, into traffic that isn't realistically doing the 30 kmh speed limit. It would actually be possible to make allowance for cyclists within the coned-off lane without compromising safety. If this is not possible, I would appreciate being told why (I am qualified as an STMS, so will understand what you are talking about). Thank you, Ben
  • Unfinished work in bike lane both side of road in Gasson St 1 update
    There are two bits of work, one on each side of the road in the bike lanes that have not been completed. They are square holes 20 - 30 mm below the bike lane surface with sharp egdes. The contractor appears to have run out of seal and left them unfinished. They are a hazard as bikes have to swerve out of the bike lane into the traffic to miss the holes. Please arrange for these holes to be properly completed.
  • Abandoned car: No rego, no warrant, no plates.1 update
    Car left outside 121 Ashgrove Tce, Christchurch. Rego and WOF expired two years ago. No plates.
  • Glass in cycle lane outside Rannerdale War Veterans Home1 update
    Glass in cycle lane outside Rannerdale War Veterans Home.
  • Rapidly growing subsurface slump in cycle lane1 update
    There is a growing hole in Fendalton Rd between the railway crossing and Jacksons Rd, in the westbound cycle lane. There is sufficient undermining that it will soon be affected by heavy vehicles in the traffic lane, if not already. It has become a cycle safety risk due to swerving into the traffic lane, and may become a fall risk too. There is a similar patched slump a few metres to the east that may indicate an area of basecourse undermining issues. A few weeks ago a slight sag appeared. A week or so ago the seal broke through. In the last week it has become several times larger. Someone at Council would probably quite like to catch this rapidly deteriorating situation before it gets too much worse.
  • Unregistered car has been parked here for 4 months.1 update
    Silver Mercedes AZF336 has been parked in the exact same place since October 2012. The registration has expired and it's time for it to move on please.
  • Street sign missing: Renfrew St1 update
    It appears that our street sign has been stolen/removed again. The metal straps are still on the pole, but the sign is no longer. See similar issue: http://fixmystreet.org.nz/issue/2141 Please can you update the FixMyStreet website when this has been replaced? Marker on the map shows location: south end of Renfrew Street, Upper Riccarton.
  • business advertisement bolted to young civic tree 1 update
    Just in from main entrance to Broken Run subdivision, 4th tree on left, sign bolted INTO young tree. Have photo, unable to attach.
  • Unregistered car has been parked here for 4 months.34 update
    Silver Mercedes AZF336 has been parked in the exact same place since October 2012. The registration has expired and it's time for it to move on please.
  • Ford Falcon WY9198. Outside 29 Birdwood Ave, Beckenham1 update
    Ford WY9198. Unmoved for many months. Expired rego. Leaking oil onto road and into stormwater system (see photo).
  • Temporary road signs in the bike lane - Madras/St Asaph Corner1 update
    There is a sign blocking the bike lane on the north side of the lights corner Madras, St Asaph, and High. This sign could easily be on the traffic island to the left of the road, which would mean cyclist don't have to swerve in front of the traffic. Please ask the conractors not to put signs in the bike lanes.
  • Grate down drain 1 update
    The grate on a drain on north side of road where Burlinton meets Huxley is down the drain, so there is a large hole in the bike lane. Would be good to get the grate pulled out and placed on top of the drain.
  • Temporary road signs in the bike lane1 update
    There are temporary road work signs in the bike lane, for no good reason. There is a very wide footpath here and the sign would still be visible if they were on the edge of the footpath. Bikes have to swerve into the traffic to avoid the signs. Please arrange for signs to be removed from the bike lanes.
  • Sign blocking cycle lane1 update
    Sign blocking cycle lane and forcing cyclists into traffic. Very dangerous at peak times as Gasson Street is busy during these periods.
  • Roadworks signs blocking cycle path1 update
    This is the fourth time I've reported one of these on Wainoni Rd. This time we have four signs in a row, apparently supplied by 'Isaac', in the cycle path. There is grass verge next to each sign between the road and pavement, which for whatever reason has been deemed unsuitable as a home for the signs. These four signs force cyclists out into the road for the sake of roadworks *on a side road*, so there is no other intrinsic hazard on the road other than the signs themselves. Have a nice day.
  • Cable hanging from power pole2 update
    It looks like somebody pulled the cable and broke the plastic brackets securing the cable to the power pole.
  • WORKS END sign blocking cycle lane1 update
    WORKS END sign is blocking the SW bound cycle lane on Wainoni Road
  • WORKS END sign blocking cycle lane1 update
    This is the second time this cycle path has been unnecessarily blocked in recent months.
  • Roadworks sign unnecessarily blocking the cycle lane1 update
    This sign could easily be placed on the grass verge, where it would be in no-ones way.
  • Container blocking entire footpath. 102 Malcolm Ave, Beckenham.1 update
    Container blocking footpath (see photo). Elderly people, and parents with young children on scooters, or in buggies, find this sort of thing a real nuisance. It is going to take several years before all the houses in Chch are repaired/rebuilt. We should not have to put up with this until then. Please have the container shifted, have a new sealed footpath constructed around it, or, implement an approved 24 hour traffic management plan to deal with the need for pedestrians to walk on the road to get past the container.
  • Vehicle unmoved for a week1 update
    Vehicle unmoved for a week, still in exactly the same place with wheels at exactly the same angle. grey sedan, mitsubishi lancer, TA9876
  • Dangerous road works1 update
    March 13 I was biking through the Marshalnds/QEII roundabout. I was yelled at by a passing traffic management truck to get off the road. At this intersection they have continually blocked the bike path and put "caution cyclists merging" signs on the road, so I used the road. Given this incident I'd like you to pass the following message on to all roadworking staff: your job is to safely manage traffic around your work site so if you don't like the way people are using your road, DO YOUR JOB. We aren't mind readers. Thank you.
  • Flooding1 update
    The bowhill road/keyes road roundabout is now the bowhill road/keyes road river. Is dangerous to drive/cycle over esp. when you factor in the quake damage. Could do with a pump until the actual damage can be repaired.
  • Broken glass at side of road 1 update
    Broken glass in cycling area of road . 2x lots within 50 metres. Thanks
  • water flowing across the path1 update
    There has been a leak from somewhere between 67 and the house next door that has had a little river of water going across the drive of 67 and onto the path for several weeks now. There looks to be a small pumping or electrical building next to their drive which could be the source of the water.
  • Broken glass at side of road1 update
    Broken glass at side of road Owles Terrace on rive rside of road
  • Several reasonable potholes in the cycle lane.1 update
    Several potholes (that seem to be mulitplying)along the north side of the road (ie your lane if you are heading east) in this vicinity. Perhaps caused by recent roadworks????
  • large pothole2 update
    large pothole opposite VINZ / Hertz. My tyre hit this last night (poor visibility /heavy rain) and burst the tyre, bent rim etc. Nicked a road cone & placed in pot hole. This is a serious hazard for cyclists especially
  • Large hole in footpath1 update
    A water pipe was repaired here (west side of Birdwood Ave outside #51) many months ago (thank you). The footpath was dug up in the process and it has yet to be repaired. Many residents from the neighbouring Santa Maria Rest Home require the use of walking frames to get the bus stop, and this hole is a huge barrier to them. I'm sure they would appreciate having it repaired.
  • Broken glass in cycle lane1 update
    West side of Colombo Street at Thorrington Road intersection
  • Graffiti on playground equipment1 update
    There is graffiti on the children's playground equipment in the park between Auburn Ave & Riccarton Rd, as per marker on the map. It's not nice for children to have to see this when they are playing.
  • Blocked Footpath1 update
    Corner Cashel & Barbadoes Streets, site of the old hotel. The footpath has been blocked for months and really needs to be cleared. The people who are clearing the hotel site need to move all their rubbish off the path. Forcing pedestrians onto the road is not very safe. In addition cyclists need to use this path to go north because CERA continue to keep Madras St closed.
  • Roundabout sign knocked over on the ground1 update
    The yellow roundabout sign has been knocked off and the post is broken with the yellow sign bent. The bottom of the post is still in the ground, but the rest of the post and sign are lying on the grass verge. The sign needs to be replaced.
  • Street sign not legible from road2 update
    The street sign for Renfrew Street has been bent back, and can only be seen from the footpath.
  • Street sign missing1 update
    There is no sign for Renfrew Street from Auburn Avenue. This makes it hard for people to find the street.
  • Pedestrian push-button / Pedestrian lights broken2 update
    When you stand on the south-east side of the intersection (closest to Miller's) and push the pedestrian button, nothing happens. The red/green lights opposite do not light up. Problem has been there since before Christmas.
  • Street lights out1 update
    The street light approximately opposite St Helliers Cres is out, as is the lighting at the end of Woodlands Pl.
  • WORKS END sign blocking cycle lane1 update
    This sign is unnecessarily blocking the cyclelane on New Brighton Road.
  • Blocked Footpath1 update
    Corner Hereford & Barbadoes Streets, site of the old dairy. Barrier completely blocking footpath forcing pedestrians into the road. Has been like this for months and needs to be recified.
  • Unacceptable road surface1 update
    I am writing to bring to your attention the considerably poor condition (lumpy)of the road between #23 Hackthorne Road and #37 Hackthorne Road. Also outside #53 there is another shuddering experience. I am a gardening contractor and 2 or 3 times a day I travel this route,and everytime I pass over this stretch of road my mowers nearly jump off the back of my truck. Potholes also continually appear in this section and continually they are repaired. Sometimes the same hole can be repaired up to twice a year. Also the other issue is the judder bars before the stop sign at the bottom of Hackthorne Road. I would have thought that between the 2010 National Cycling Champs and this years event they could have been repaired. A friend of my hit them with his bike early last year and spent 3 days in hospital. I feel that the whole of Hackthorne Road needs to be re surfaced, but particularly the section from the bottom up to Gwynfa Avenue.
  • Broken water pipe or connection1 update
    A water valve in the street, at the end of the driveway to 29,29a,29b,29c & 29d Birdwood Ave, appears to be leaking. There is also a leak from a water meter further north along the footpath (outside 47 Birdwood Ave). Both started leaking following the recent earthquakes.
  • New Pothole - Hollow underneath!2 update
    New pot hole has appeared 19/9/11, appears to be a decent 'void' underneath!
  • Pothole Cnr Barbadoes / Salisbury Sts,1 update
    Pothole (yellow circle in photo) and general uneven surface (yellow line) makes this section of cycle lane dangerous for cyclists. Resurfacing has removed the white line (red line).
  • Another Sawstika1 update
    On the footpath outside 26 Remuera Ave.
  • Pothole at eastern entrance to funeral directors'.1 update
    On south side of road. It's about 500mm wide and 150mm deep. Filling and sealing would be great. Thanks.
  • Pedestrian crossing has large hole in surface.1 update
    For months now the pedestrian crossing here on the hospital side has had a large rectangle of the upper road surface removed, this is not good for un-suspecting cyclests as its deep enough to cause them falling off.
  • Faulty street sign1 update
    The street sign "Radnor Street" is pointing directly up my drive, having swung around 180 degrees. My address is 20 Dover Street.
  • 2 Signs have been pulled out and sitting at intersection1 update
    Someone has pulled out 2 quite large signs showing speed bumps and placed them in the kerbside bushes at the corner of Roa Rd and Tui St ChCh. Can CCC replace them (use an allen key and really tighten them)
  • Large lumps on road as result of liquifaction2 update
    There are several lumps in the road (mainly in the cycle lanes) on both sides of Strictland St in this area. They are forcing cyclists to deviate from their lane and into the path of traffic.
  • Pothole in middle of road1 update
    A large pothole (about 0.75m wide and 0.2m deep) is in the middle of the road. There was a road-cone sticking out of it to warn road users but this seems to have disappeared.
  • Yet another swastika1 update
    This time it's a large black one on a light coloured fence. You can't miss it!
  • Sawstika painted on footpath1 update
    Green sawstika painted on footpath. It's been there for ages please have someone remove it.
  • Pothole both sides of the road and footpaths1 update
    A cable or pipe has been laid under road. To do a trench was dug across both footpaths and about 1/3 of the road. I'm fairly sure they've been there since July. They was never sealed after the trench was filled in and they are starting to become quite deep potholes.
  • Road surface is severely torn up.1 update
    The road surface on the left where cycles would use (if it were not so broken) is very torn up, on the exit of the round about heading in the direction of the railway crossing. I am forced to ride out of the roundabout in the middle of the lane as the road surface is bad for tyres & comfort.
  • Top layer of seal peeled away1 update
    On Halswell Road, just south of Kennaird Pl, the top layer of seal has peeled away in a short section on the cycle path. Its been like this since just after the earthquake. There is still seal on the road but the surface in uneven.

New issues

  • Rubbish dumped
    Half trailer load of rubbish dumped on the bend on conservators rd
  • Heavy roadwork vehicles being stored overnight on residential street
    44 Springbank St using the residential street to park heavy motor vehicles in this overnight on a daily basis. Significant danger to public as the street is narrow and has a blind corner, we have already have witnessed one head accident.
  • Nissan Primera
    Reg uf480 Broken drivers seat, missing lh front wheel, broken tie rod ball
  • Poor traffic management - no safe pedestrian path
    Chorus installing fiber on one side of Arawa St (in front of #8-#14) - has closed footpath on this side. Retirement home under construction on opposite side of the road (now only side with footpath open) has no traffic management and worker vehicles parked all over the footpath - meaning there is no safe pedestrian walkway for this end of Arawa St.
  • 2-3 Cars & container abandoned in Whitehall St
    AHN582 Two Tone Subaru Legacy Station wagon hasn't moved in at least 6 months. Have asked residents whose house it is parked outside and It isnt theirs. BUU680 Red Bmw infront of it has been parked and not moving either. There's also a shipping container on the council verge coming up 2 years now, lawn growing around it - Is this not against council by laws to have it stored for such a lengthy period of time - this would surely not be for EQC repairs as they wouldn't take that long to undertake? All are unsightly and are a eyesore!
  • Dangerously parked car and trailer
    This car and wide trailer have been parked on the road side verge (near 617 Harewood Rd)for many weeks and is a danger to traffic. Sorry but this may not be a problem for you, but I can't find who else to contact! Could you please pass on my comments to correct folk.
  • Vickerys Road parkiing (Pilkington way to Lodestar Ave)
    A suggestion is to paint broken yellow no parking lines on Vickerys Road on the opposite side (airfield side) to Higgins Contractors premises. Between Pilkington Way & Lodestar Ave roundabout. The grass verge has a pole & wire rope fence on airfield side of road stopping parking on the grass itself but people still park on the airfield side of the road (beside pole/wire rope fence) which narrows down Vickerys road to one lane & thus making it hard for traffic to pass each other etc. Very difficult to pass as an increase of traffic now comes from Lodestar roundabout.
  • Dangerous Carparking over Street Intersection Corners - Ilkley Place, Ilam
    Due to the lack of car-parking at the University we get cars parking on both corners at the intersection of Ilkley Place and Wadley Ave. This blocks visual access and turns Ilkley Place into a single lane causing a serious health a safety issue as cars can't see to turn into or out of Ilkley Place and pedestrians can't cross safely. We suggest yellow lines are added to both corners with at least a car length or two of yellowlines continuing into Ilkley Place and Wadley Ave. Please fix urgently as there is likely to be an accident if this isn't resolved as it is currently extremely dangerous.
  • OZ9765 rego
    This car parked in front of 111 Francis Avenue has been in the same spot leaking oil for over a month. I am not sure if it is abandoned but the rego has lapsed and no one is ever around it.
  • Car under cover hasn't been moved or attended to in months
    There is a car in my street that has been under a cover and unused for several months... no one i know of has calmed ownership of the vehicle but i know it to be a Porsche and in an un-roadworthy state, i have recovered this vehicle several times during storms in an effort to help protect the interior and requests for removal from parking space has been ripped off and nothing has happened, I fear that the vehicle may one day roll down the hill as it is perched on top of the curb as it is... If someone could come and have a look and leave something legal in place of the hand written notes the neighbours leave that would be greatly appreciated. Regards J. Arkadhian
  • Traffic Hazard
    Travelling from Dunbars Road over the bridge a continuing on Awatea Road, I am often stopped by a line of traffic waiting for someone to turn right into Summerset Village. Considering the density of traffic on Awatea & Wigram Roads and now from the new housing area on the left, perhaps it is time to consider a bay for those turning right and permit those continuing along Awatea Road to be able to. An issue could occur if traffic was really heavy that those coming over the bridge could slam into the backs of waiting cars. Thanks for your consideration
  • Unregistered car
    There is a black Nissan pulsar that parks either outside 21 Greenpark street, or 19 Greenpark Street. It is unregistered and has been since October 2016. I'm unsure if the WOF is up to date or not.
  • berms
    Hi Could we please have the Berms grass cut down at 27 44 48 Kawau Crescent Bromley one is nearly one metre long ALL VERY UNSIGHTLY. Thank you
  • Road obstruction/ rundown road side
    The corner of Eastwood rise and Aston drive, old rundown planter boxes in need of reapair and paint. Also the flax bushes have grown quite large that it is hard to see what traffic is coming and I have had 2 near misses here as cars travel reasonably fast down this stretch of road. Also the general upkeep of the forest walkway and road side is in need of a major overhaul as it looks very rundown in general which is disappointing.

Older issues

  • Water leaking through road
    Water is coming up through the road, possibly from a broken pipe, been like that for a week. On left lane towards Memorial Ave opposite the coffee shop.
  • Cars cutting into cycle path
    Since the concrete barriers were removed on the bend in Ilam Road before Creake Rd just past the bus stop, cars are once more regularly cutting the corner across the cycle lane. Could you please fix.
  • Dumping
    Large amount of items dumped on the side of the road, on the grass. Receipt found on top of items shows identifiable information
  • Water meter box lid can't be closed
    Trip hazard for people walking along the road outside the school, next to the road crossing (opp Creselly Place complex)
  • Footpath
    Outside 3 Sandra street. Hole subsidence formed. hazard 30cm across 20cm deep. Right beside fibre installation.
  • Cars in Cycle Lane
    Constantly cars are using the cycle lane (to avoid a queue waiting to turn onto Durham Street), heading east at this intersection. This is hazardous to cyclists, as they have to negotiate the nearby tram tracks. Solution is to increase signage, policing, or put plastic bollards there to keep cars off the cycle lane. This is a major feeder route to the central city for cyclists from Hagley Park.
  • No footpath
    Due to the closer from Wairakei Road going to the motorway we are experiencing more heavy traffic flooding Stanley’s Road in Harewood. This has increase sufficiently and it continues to grow. Also the increase of foot traffic has increase due to the opening of the underpass from the intersection of Russley Road and Harewood Road opened late 2016. Stanley’s Road has now because a mini motorway in itself. My concern is the children that live on Stanley’s Road and many of the children commute by bicycle to and from school on a daily basis. I live on Stanley’s Road and have children that attend Harewood Primary. I have seen a few accidents by vehicles giving way to cyclist and also for cyclist wearing full safety cycling gears are having to give way to vehicles. There has been several little accidents with children going down the ditch because there is no footpaths and it is a great concern and I’m terrified that a tragedy could happen with someone purely innocent behind the wheel and a cyclist taking all precaution to keep safe and because of no foot path on both sides and a narrow little road for all this traffic coming through it is catastrophe and needs to be address to council to have this rectified it is extremely hazardous to all travellers.

    Green car abandoned on kauri street . 3 Kauri street . there is a 60m sign but car has been there for 3 days
  • Overgrown Weeds and Grass
    This is the third time I have logged this, CCC. The area alongside the cycle pathway between Curletts Road and Aidanfield Drive has weeds and grass over 1m high. This area has had no attention for many months, the growth is leaning well over the pathway and it is reducing the area available for cyclists and walkers to use, causing potential crash hazards on narrow sections. Please can the contractors (Delta I have been told by the CCC) do their job, do what they are contracted to do, and maintain this area.
  • Sign Bent
    Bent Parking Sign (no parking) outside the address of 8 Lesley Keast Place, Hornby

  • Hazardous vehicles in residential street
    Large commercial traffic management vehicles are parking on this residential street overnight (44 Springbank St). This causes a narrow corner to become extremely hazardous.
  • parking across driveway
    Parents dropping kids off at Rawhiti school park across our driveway on Grantley st. Has happened 4 times since school recommenced. Sick of being late for work (about 10 minutes today) and being abused in return for complaining - not often but enough to make me want to take a hammer to their vehicle. It is quite obviously a driveway but people seem to think it's okay because "I'll only be a few minutes.

  • car needs moving
    very old beat up car appears to be un-used sits on side of the road outside 7 Hillcrest Place.
  • Dangerous drop off the side of the road
    The is a narrow stretch of road where there is a fence hanging in mid air. A while back a lady with two kid in the car went off the road there as another car was coming towards her. Fortunately the fence stopped the car from plunging several meters into the stream below. Her car had to be towed out. I also experienced the same thing riding a quad bike and a on coming speeding motorist. I too was fortunate not to go over the edge. We have been told for a while now that the road is going to be fixed. I hope we don't have to wait for a serious crash before something is done.

  • Littering from car
    I'm not sure this is the correct forum for this. I was behind a ute on bealy ave yesterday that threw a half full glass bottle into the verge between the carriageways. I have a photo of it's number plate if it's worth anything?
  • Abandoned vehicle - ABH133 - Wrights Road

  • Amber lights not working
    The amber lights aren't working on two of the three lights pointing down Tennyson St, for Tennyson St traffic.
  • New narrow road layout - dangerous driving
    The new road layout to accommodate the 2-way cycle lane has made the lanes for other vehicles so narrow that drivers regularly straddle the centre line. This is especially so on refuse collection days when there is no space for the refuse truck to pull to the side and no place for other traffic to pass the truck for the length of the road from the railway line to the intersection of Sawyers Arms Road with Main North Road. Impatient drivers are passing the truck in the face of oncoming traffic. Space allocated for parking along the road is also contributing to the lanes now being so narrow that traffic often straddle the centre line in order to avoid colliding with car doors being opened.
  • Mattresses Dumped on berm
    23rd Feb 2 old mattresses have been dumped on the grass berm outside this property.
  • Poorly fixed road
    This road recently had new asphalt installed but there was a gap that was not repaired. The transition is quite violent and should be repaired by the contractor.

  • Loose chip centre line
    A lot of loose chip was left by the contractors working on the road approx. 1 month ago. There remains too much chip about the centre line and with vehicles moving to accommodate cyclists chip spray is still a frequent nuisance
  • Double yellow line and traffic turning right into Papanui Leagues Club
    New road markings and narrow lanes seem to be forcing traffic turning right into the Papanui Leagues Club to cross and wait on the wrong side of the double yellow lines - directly facing oncoming traffic. There is no provision for traffic turning right into the club. This happens daily.

  • Traffic Lights taking too long to change - North Avon Rd & North Parade
    Recently this intersection has re opened and the traffic lights take over two minutes to change. This use to be much quicker. It has gotten to the point where I am seeing people running the red light to get through as they think it might be broken.
  • Tree roots creating dangerously uneven footpath
    Roots of trees on berm pushing up asphalt to a dengerous extent. I am aware of one person who tripped and sustained bad bruising and grazing, and I myself have tripped; although with only a minor knee injury. They were marked by someone a few months back, but nothing has been done since then. I will send a photograph if required
  • Collapsed steps
    The bottom section of the public pathway and steps from Le Clare Lane (off Hempleman Drive) to Beach Road has collapsed (again). Although a sign has been erected saying the track is closed children and others are still using it to access Beach Road from Hempleman Drive. The collapsed area represents a continual hazard to the public. It is also causing the side of the adjacent private section to collapse.
  • Truck with ads block view at pedestrian crossing
    A truck advertising fruit & vege prices is permanently parked on Harewood Road close to the pedestrian crossing point opposite Cotswold Avenue. This makes it dangerous to cross at that point. If it were 30m or more further back that would be a lot safer for children (or even adults!) crossing there. Many people cross there because of the bus stop and Bishopdale Park playground.

The illuminated 50 km/h is also not working, this however does not slow people down. What would be good is random speed checks by the police to deter motorist from speeding.

The neighbour also has a generator operating from this vehicle which can be heard several houses away. This generator often runs from approx 3.30pm till 10.00pm. Just wanting to know if this is legal. The truck is quite frankly an eyesore and is a hazard to vehicles trying to pass it and the noise of the generator a pain. Please advise.

  • abandoned car Ryan Street

  • massive expensive sign structures with events boards 3 month's out of date!
    So there was quite some push back from the community when these I think 4 or 5 structures were put in place due to the large expenditure, but we were told the idea was to inform the public and visitors alike .well if that was it's intention they seem to miss the mark as all the events shown finished at least 3 month's ago! What therefore is the point if they don't carry current information (goodness knows what visitors to our fine city think when they look to see what's happening in Chch )

  • TV under footbridge
    TV left under the footbridge over the Heathcote River.
  • Cars Using Cycle Lane
    The cycle lane is somewhat indistinct at this intersection onn Armagh Street travelling east, and it is often full of cars, meaning cyclists have to ride on the tram lines, which causes some difficulty. CCC please paint the lines on the road, or install some barriers to keep cars off the bike lane - this is hazardous when a tram is nearby, and dangerous for cyclists. Note in the photo, there is no turning lane so cars travelling straight through are using the cycle lane, leaving right turning vehicles in the car lane.
  • Grass (recently cut!)
    CCC, the contractor who cuts the grass alongside the cycle path from the Curletts Road to Aidanfield section of the cycle path needs a rev-up. This photo shows recently cut area, where the blades were so blunt it did a terrible job. It also shows the parts they just didn't do. Grass and weeds are up to 1.5m high along here, right through from Curletts to Aidanfield. And weeds are covering up to 40% of the pathway. Can we please have something done about this contracting, it is just disgusting.
  • Broken Barrier

  • Skip Blocking Half Footpath
    This creates a hazard for people who have impaired vision - these builders seem to think it is ok to have a skip over the footpath if they have a fence around it. It creates a nuisence for those who cannot see well, elderly, and families with prams. Please do something about this.

  • Pedestrian crossing
    Nearly got hit by a car crossing Bealey Ave as I was walking down Colombo street. I was crossing with the green pedestrian light. I am a young, fit person and was able to avoid the car in question as they turned onto Bealey Ave. I had to run across the road to avoid being hit but an older pedestrian would have been severely injured. This is a dangerous intersection at the best of times so I would suggest having all pedestrian lights go green at the same time to solve this particular problem.

    Hi, when crossing Bealey Ave (Colombo to Colombo crossing towards the Gift Shop) the green man comes on but traffic is still allowed to turn right while pedestrians are crossing (the red man starts flashing straight away). The vehicles are often too busy checking for cars and don't see us walking across the road - I have nearly been hit a couple of times now! I feel there should be a red for those turning right as it is very dangerous.

    I emailed re blockage under driveway bridge at 28 Checketts ave back in April. To this date it does not seem to have been looked at and now with all the rain there has been flooding. The blockage has narrowed the tunnel under the bridge and rubbish is becoming stuck therefore preventing water and debris flowing through.
  • Water leaking from water meter
    The cover is missing and its filled with water, tap is also missing

    The pavement located outside 6 Matisse Place is cracked and uneven due to expanding tree roots that have broken the surface.

  • Repair failed
    Hi, the stormwater/wastewater road repairs done 2 years ago have failed. There is a big slump in the road at the intersection of nancy Avenue and innes road.

  • Red bus parking on yellow lines outside school gate
    Redbus run a school bus service to Aranui High School which they are parking their buses on the yellow lines outside the school gate every day even though there is a bus stop for the buses 50 metres away down the road. When they park on the yellow lines people coming out of the school driveway can't see past the bus for the traffic and this of course is the reason why the yellow lines and bus stop were put there.

  • Vibrations to houses from heavy vehicles
    We are getting very strong vibrations from heavy vehicles travelling along Gamblins Road. Large trucks & all buses that pass down here seem to send a sudden shudder through houses, it feels just like a mini earthquake. And as you can imagine, as buses pass down here on a frequent schedule, it isn't very pleasant at all. I understand, that roughly 2 months ago, some remediation work was taken out on the road, from St.Martins road round-about, up to number 10 Gamblins road, which had some positive effect, for a little time, but it seems to have settled back to almost worse than it was before the works were carried out. I am concerned mainly, on what the constant sudden movements are doing to the structal integrity of my house over time, and I was wondering if there are any plans to do any further remediation work on this road?

Some cars fly by so fast you couldn't read the number plate if you tried. There are alot of kids and pets who also live down the street and it is a danger to all when cars are clearly travelling in excess of 100km/h in a 50km/h zone. I would love to see speed bumps and a speed camera van down here to catch all those people who are making our roads that much more dangerous to travel on.

  • Dangerous raised footpath issue
    Outside property at 19 Thornlea Place, Halswell, a nearby tree (over time) has caused footpath asphalt to raise over 90mm (about 40mm width) & is now a pedestrian hazard. An elderly neighbor had a fall a couple of months back (tripping over it & damaged her face), and a visitor to the area recently stumbled over it. This section of footpath needs resurfacing please. NB: Some Contractors are today (12.04.2016) doing similar footpath work just along the street. Can we please see them also attend to this while in the area? (We definitely do wish to see the tree retained please!). Many thanks. Donald Tyree. (Resident at 15 Thornlea Place, Halswell).
  • bloackage under bridge onto driveway
    Everytime it rains the water does not flow freely under the bridge over the driveway at this address. I have tried to poke a long stick through but there is something obstructing I think it is concrete and it narrows the channel, therefore any rubbish is being trapped. It is also resulting in a pothole being formed in the roadway.

  • Water leak
    For several months, every time I go past this point, there is a constant stream of water spilling into the gutter here. Possibly stormwater, or a leak from a private residence. On the left hand side of the road, when approaching the roundabout with Wilsons road etc. Thanks.
  • Speed bumps needed
    Every day during rush hour, dozens of vehicles use Spalding Street, and Mooray Avenue as a shortcut to Farrington Ave. This results in numerous drivers speeding excessively down this stretch. Most Friday and Saturday evenings/mornings this also turns into a racetrack, with "boy racers" driving over 100km/h. We expect a fatality in this area, unless something is done to restrict the speed. Thanks for reading my submission.
  • Abandoned
    Stripped down Subaru derelict in street for almost 2 weeks, needs to be removed asap!!!
  • Timing issues
    These lights on the Linwood Avenue, Keighleys, and Hargood intersection had work done to them last week and prior to that were running okay. It's a dangerous intersection anyway if coming from Keighleys or Hargood Street. Since the work, the light sequences have been shortened somewhat on these sides and only 3 to 4 cars can get through at a time. I sat through 6 sets at 3pm yesterday. Between 8am and 9am is also terrible with queues of traffic backing up a considerable distance down Keighleys Road. Please look into changing the timing of these lights urgently and/or installing a turning arrow at this intersection.
  • Flooding
    Every time there is a little bit of rain this corner from Halswell Junction Road onto Murphy's Road floods, this has been happening for at least 2.5 years. This not only affects the motorists turning onto Murphy's road, as they try and avoid the mass of water and in doing so, almost hit (actually it looks like someone has already hit) the rail of the pedestrian crossing island; but also pedestrians trying to cross the end of Murphy's road. Pedestrians are having to avoid using the island that aids in the crossing of that road as there is about 20cm of standing water in the way. I've seen, on more than one occasion, an elderly person getting into some trouble trying to cross this road.

We would love if this could be looked and and fixed as it is causing a lot of anxiety within our home due to the feel of it being like an earthquake
  • Fencing in the berm
    Fencing at number 20 Hawthorne St and a new fence at number 28 Hawthorne St fencing in the public berm, make it dangerous for vehicles leaving neighbouring properties and disrupt the whole aesthetic of the street.

  • Light cycle too short for right turning
    Intersection at Innes and papanui road has a set of lights which cycles too quickly. Filter for right turning isn't on. Total cycle is 10seconds.

Both myself and neighbours in all sides have issues with this tee if we open our doors or windows on hot days we end up with thousands of seed pods through out the house they stick to things and are hard to remove. The seed pods also stick to cars and need to be washed off to avoid paint damage. This in turn also wastes a lot of water to achieve this on a daily basis. They also block guttering in the houses nearest to the tree. my elderly neighbour the neighbours daughter and I have had issues for the past 4-5 summers with constant sneezing and coughing only when at home and have been informed the tree is the likely cause

  • SPEEDING CARS MAKING OUR STREET DANGEROUS!!! NEED SPEED BUMPS
    We have a lot of cars going down our street way to fast, some of them go way over 100kph our street is a 50kph zone. I have just lost one of my pets due to speeders, My family have lived down this street for a very long time, and this is not the first pet we have lost. We as residents of this street believe there needs to be speed bumps down our street. It would be much appreciated if this could be done.

  • Abandoned Large Aquatic Vessell
    This reasonably large boat has been unmoved on our street for over 4 years. It is slowly deteriorating, proving to be an eyesore and it narrows the street around its location. The boat is very old and no motor is attached, the trailer's wheels are flat and are so old that they are cracking, so we can assume it has been abandoned on our street for years! Please get rid of this.
  • Fridge Freezer Broomfield Terrace
    Hello, someone has left a fridge freezer on the footpath on Broomfield Terrace (Kingsford Street end). Can this please be removed as it is dangerous for kids. Also can the forgotten road cones on both sides of New Brighton Road at Kingsford Street intersection also be taken away, thanks

  • Under the motorway bridge
    New tagging under the bridge
  • Cycle Lane
    Vehicles and trade trailers are parking daily in the marked cycling lane on this road, on the left side heading towards Wigram Road. This makes it hazardous and dangerous for cyclists to travel this cycle-lane-marked route, as many construction heavy vehicles use this road, and it is not very wide. Either this should not be marked as a cycle lane and thus implying it is a safe/preferred route for cycling, or there should be no parking in the lane by vehicles.
  • Cracking
    Crack in seal on cycle path just on eastern side of Aidanfield Drive aprox 15m from start of pathway is widening, needs repair, weeds are starting to grow in it which will result in much deterioration. This seal was done badly when laid relatively recently.
  • Endless misery of buses on rough road
    House shakes, doors rattle, thumping noise heard as buses speed over bumps / depressions in sunken road which has been patched over 5 times. Very sick of this, after 4 years, it's disgusting.
  • Damaged vehicle - no warrant or registration
    On Wittys Road at the corner of Nortons Road their is an abandoned maroon nissan station wagon which has been parked outside our house for about 6 weeks. It is extensively damaged. Police have no record of it being stolen. Our property and two adjacent properties are currently on the market and this vehicle makes our normally quiet and tidy suburb look undesirable. It would be greatly appreciated if the removal of this vehicle could be addressed urgently so that the sale or our properties are not negatively impacted. Thanks for your help.
  • Unruly grass
    The grass area in front of 37 Gresford Street really needs a desperate trim. It looks awful on the street and it is such a shame that that it is usually the only area on the street where the grass is in that state. Also they park their cars on the grass, damaging it and also it looks quite dangerous, as there may be an accident from cars coming out of the driveway as well.
  • Alignment of drainage cover slots along bike path seems designed to catch wheels
    All the stormwater drainage covers on the surface of the new bike paths (e.g., Tuam St and Ferry Road) have the slots in line with, rather than across, the direction of travel. This seems designed to catch a wheel - the only safe way to ride them is to avoid them. The wiggle pattern doesn't help - just will force a wheel one way then the other. What's the thinking behind this layout? And how can they be fixed on these existing paths, and equally importantly, on any new paths?
  • possible abandoned vehicle with expired registration

  • Signs blocking turning lane
    Why is the right turning lane at the Manchester Tuam intersection STILL blocked by a no entry sign. All the other intersections have been reopened and there has been no entry at this particular intersection since the red zone was reopened after the earthquake - for over 4 years. Why would people expect it now when Tuam st has gone one way in the other direction ? Can't they take the signs away?

  • New Zealand flag at the New Brighton cenotaph
    The Christchurch City Council is responsible for the maintenance of the flag at the New Brighton cenotaph (war memorial.) For the past month, the flag, which was already frayed and in need of replacement, has been caught around the top of the flagpole, as shown in the attached photo. Many council staff members must have seen this situation, but nothing has been done. Such disgraceful treatment of the national flag would be a hanging offence in some countries, and this continuing state of affairs gives the impression there is no respect for the flag here. Several visitors to Christchurch have commented unfavourably about it, so can we have some urgent action, please?

  • Crossing for cycles
    1) Pressing the button for the cycle crossing over Oxford Terrace from Antigua Street (heading North) does not work - they never turn green for cycles heading for the Antigua St bridge. Cycles are ignoring the lights, which is dangerous. 2) Heading South, the lights are activated if one presses the button but the sequence isn't efficient - it always return to giving priority to Oxford Terrace traffic, even if there is none. Cyclists then have to wait through a sequence where the lights on Oxford Terrace is green before they are given the green light to proceed.

  • Traffic Lights Require Maintenance
    Hello Traffic Lights controlling pedestrian crossing: The 4 traffic light poles are in need of maintenance. The yellow paint has almost all gone and they are not as visible as they would be if repainted. (They appear to have been left off a maintenance schedule as they are in the worst of conditions that I have observed). Most traffic lights around the city appear well cared for, well done.
  • Bed frames and mattresses dumped on side of road
    Two bed frames and mattresses have been dumped on the grass verge between the footpath and road outside 271 Woodham Road, Linwood. They have been there for aproximately 4 weeks. They are unsightly and dangerous given the extensive road works in progress on Woodham Road.
  • Cycle lane blockages
    I have recently written to The Press about this issue, no Council response was posted so I am going through the direct route. An ongoing problem in Christchurch is roading contractors placing temporary road signs in the cycle lanes when there are obvious alternatives that cause no obstruction. This is probably a mixture of apathy, ignorance and laziness. What I wrote to Thre Press - "I usually cycle to work and road cones and signs are the things I have to dodge along the way and if there is no alternative to placing them on the road, I can accept that. But I was extremely irritated to see Fulton Hogan had placed signs on Centaurus road in the cycle lane, and placed blanking covers on them prior to the weekend. These signs were not required until the next week, they were placed right on a corner with an adjacent intersection and there was ample room to place them on the side of the road - out of the cycle lane (where they ended up). But it is not just Fulton Hogan, 500 metres down the road it McConnell Dowell did the same thing and blocked the bus stop and again Men at Work on Wilsons road were at it too (no working men to be seen). Now if I parked my car in these lanes I could rightly expect a ticket, why is the council not fining these companies and taking away their signs?" Damn, I can only upload one photo! Needless to say that I have moved the offending signs to suitable positions. What are the council going to do about policing this issue, If I have to keep doing it I am going to get mad.

  • No drop kerb on southbound Wainoni Bridge cycle path1 update
    Before recent repair work there was a drop kerb for cyclists heading southbound over Wainoni Bridge joining the dedicated cycle path over the bridge with the cycle lane on the carriageway. During recent repaving work around the bridge this drop kerb was not reinstated and there is now no safe way to join the cycle lane on the road. Cyclists are forced to ride a further 100m on the pedestrian footpath before the next drop kerb.

  • Road marking hinders traffic
    If on Grahams Rd heading towards riccarton the road layout is ridiculous.There are 3 lanes, the far right inside for right turning accross traffic.Middle lane for straight ahead traffic and the left lane should be for left hand turning traffic only. As across the other side of the intersection there is no lane for merging traffic. Cars are going up the left hand lane and trying to merge with straight ahead traffic in the middle of the intersection ,this is not only dangerous but frustrating for traffic that is in the correct middle lane.The far left lane needs to have a left turn only sign or road marking on the road to prevent a crash and make the traffic flow better and more safely.

Cars are also parking within 1m of residential driveways within the subdivision.
  • Edgeware Rd Christchurch outside Dominos pizza
    Last night at approx 630pm I parked outside Dominos. I got out of car and went to footpath. The weather had been raining and roads were shiny. The lighting was mainly from the shops but it was not totally dark. I tripped on the road and fell hard. I was carrying only my car keys but nonetheless could not stop the fall. I am 55 years old. I was unable to get up without assistance from a passerby. I had grazed my left knee despite wearing jeans. I hv bruises on left arm. Right ankle twisted and swollen. The hearing aid in left ear was damaged though nah alg brah marks to face. I hv had one day off work.
  • Roadside Trees Destroyed
    It appears that someone has selectively destroyed a number of trees on the roadside reserve, and left the foliage on the roadside. It is obvious these have not been topped professionally by looking at the remaining stumps in the gardens nearby!2 issues here please CCC; rubbish left on roadside, and destruction of trees on public property. Wigram Road, heading SW from Aidanfield Drive Roundabout.
  • Entrance for Pedistrians to/from Broken Run Subdivision
    This has looked temporary since it was put in. Not suitable for other than able bodied persons to enter/exit from Broken Run to Aidanfield Drive. Many people use this route as it quickest way to bus stops, shopping centre. Needs to be paved and levelled as is slippery and dangerous.
  • Lights in Footpath both blown bulbs
    There are two lights that shine up into trees along Broken Run near Wigram Road. The bulbs appear to have blown, making this stretch of path dark. Can these be replaced please.
  • Sign Left Behind
    There is a sign blocking the lane used for bikes, on the left heading towards Wigram from Aidanfield, has no relevance to anything in the area and appears to have blown over, and now poses a hazard to cyclists using this road.
  • Hazard - Vehicles Parking on Bike Lane
    Each morning there are vehicles parking on the bike lane heading east from Hagley Park. They are associated with the redevelopment on the land nearby, however are tradesmen's vehicles and not essential to be blocking this path. It makes the transition over the tram tracks hazardous for cyclists. Can the CCC please enforce the clearance of this lane - they are parking on yellow lines.
  • Hazard on Marked Cycle Lane
    There is a sign at each end of this narrow road section for work to happen on the road, no "Caution Cyclists Merging" and no speed restrictions. The signs are both placed blocking the cycle lane, forcing cyclists into the path of cars. There is garden/grass alongside the signs where they could be placed safely.
  • Abandoned burnt out vehicle - steel reinforcing rods hanging out the back. Health & Safety issue

    Heavy vehicles, particularly buses shake repaired homes all down Estuary Rd due to poor road repairs by Scirt. Unable to use front bedrooms due to vibrations from 5.30am to 12.30pm when buses stop running. homes being re-damaged after expensive repairs
  • Traffic Lights
    Since the traffic lights have been changed, if you are in the left hand turning lane on Waltham Road wanting to turn left (city facing), then you either have to A) wait for another car to be in a straight ahead lane on your side or B) sit through numerous light changes before either getting a green arrow or light. This is definitely more noticeable just after 5.30am when you are the only one at the lights and can't go as everyone else gets arrows or green lights, even if there is no one stopped or coming at that intersection.
  • Green station wagon sitting on side of road
    Since 24 July there has been a green station wagon parked outside 157 Marshland Road. As there is a fire hydrant and yellow lines nearby this vehicle is a hazard for other cars that need access to nearby properties. The vehicle is a green Ford Falcon Futura and it's registration is ZP9406. It has current registration til July 2016.

  • Right-hand turning lane stops through traffic - creates dangerous driving
    Intersection of Milton and Selwyn Streets: dangerous driving from people getting stuck behind cars waiting to turn right from Selwyn into Milton, because the arrows on the road mark the RH turning lane as also the through lane, while the LH turning lane does not allow through traffic. As a result, people go into the LH lane to go through when they get impatient and then try to merge unexpectedly with cars that stayed in the proper lane on the other side.

    Hello. Outside of the Bruce Apartments (85 Beach Road, Akaroa) there was some work done to cabling under the footpath. This was done is October 2014. It has already gone through one cruise ship season looking this way and would be great if it could be attended to before the next one. There is a lot of work going on in Akaroa at the moment and it would not take too much to get the asphalt guys who are already in Akaroa to patch this up. Thank you

  • GIB board in cycle lane1 update
    A large piece of GIB board has been lying in the westbound cycle lane near the top of the railway flyover for close to a year. This board is slowly deteriorating but not quite quickly enough to avoid it being a hazard for cyclists.
  • Excessive gravel in cycle lane eastbound1 update
    There is a lot of gravel in the cycle lanes on both sides of this roundabout but it is worse on the eastbound side, the whole width of the cycle lane has about 30mm of gravel on it. This forces you to ride on the main 'car' section and car drivers don't expect it.
  • Cycle lane closed with no advance warning
    Eastbound cycle lane on Tuam St between Montreal St & Durham St is closed off with cones, but there is no advance warning for cyclists or drivers that this will happen. The left hand traffic lane is also closed, but there are gated “Lane Closed” signs to warn drivers of the lane closure ahead. Well after where the cycle lane & left lane are closed, there is an “Extreme Care Cyclists Merging” sign (way past the three “Keep Right” signs and the “Detour Ahead” sign). This was previously reported to CCC on 19th April 2015 (via FixMyStreet #5498) and forwarded to CCC’s Temporary Traffic Management Team on the same day (CSR #91915317), but sadly nothing has been done to fix this over the last 2½ months. If Fulton Hogan and CTOC consider that advance warning signs should be located after the hazard they are warning of, maybe the gated “Lane Closed” signs could be moved to the other side of Durham St for consistency?
  • Sign base without sign dangerous for cyclists
    City Care have left a roadworks sign base, without a sign attached, on St Asaph St between Barbadoes St & Ferry Rd. As it is located immediately in front of the start of the westbound cycle lane, it could be dangerous for cyclists (especially as there is no taper in front of it and it is very hard to see without a sign on it). As CoPTTM is quite clear that “sign bases must not be left in place, without signs attached, in a manner that will be a hazard to any road user, including … cyclists”, maybe City Care could explain why they consider removing the sign but leaving the base immediately in front of a cycle lane does not present a hazard to cyclists?
  • Detour sign blocking cycle lane
    City Care have placed a detour sign at the corner of Papanui Rd & Halton St so it leans across and blocks the northbound cycle lane. As it has been leaning over and blocking the cycle lane since at least 17th June 2015, City Care either haven’t done any inspections of their temporary traffic management or they must consider the location and angle of this sign to be safe and compliant with CoPTTM. Maybe they could let me know which of these two options is correct (as well as move the sign away from the cycle lane and onto the footpath at the corner where the footpath widens)?
  • Roadworks sign blocking cycle lane (x2)
    Men At Work have blocked both the eastbound and westbound cycle lanes on Avonside Dr approaching Stanmore Rd with "Roadworks" signs. This was reported to CCC on 24th June 2015 (via FixMyStreet #5770) and forwarded to CCC’s Temporary Traffic Management Team on the same day (CSR #91941340). Unfortunately it would appear that neither CCC nor Men At Work care about cyclist safety, as they are still there a week later. Maybe somebody from CTOC could explain how they respond to complaints about dangerous and non-compliant temporary traffic management, and how this meets their legal responsibility to “ensure that all TTM measures are in accordance with CoPTTM”?
  • Cycle lane blocked by mVMS trailer
    Men At Work have parked a mobile VMS trailer blocking the eastbound cycle lane on Avonside Dr at the Fitzgerald Ave intersection. Maybe Men At Work could explain why they couldn’t have parked it on the grass verge between the cycle lane & fence, where it would have been clear of the cycle lane but still visible to approaching road users?
  • Temporary traffic management dangerous for cyclists
    Temporary traffic management associated with repairs to a signal light post at the corner of Moorhouse Ave and Madras St is dangerous for cyclists. Heading eastbound, the nearside lane is coned off but not the cycle lane. However, staying in the cycle lane will take cyclists right through the worksite, assuming they don’t get caught on the loose cables stretched across the cycle lane. Or smacked in the face with a long-handled shovel. Or doored from either of the work vans. I observed one cyclist swerve out of the cycle lane, pass between the two work vans and shoot out into the adjacent traffic lane – thankfully without incident. Maybe the Fulton Hogan STMS standing around watching the work could explain why his site led cyclists “into direct conflict with the operation … (of) the worksite” He could also explain the “clear and positive guidance provided for road users (including cyclists) approaching (and) travelling through the worksite”.
  • Temporary traffic management very dangerous for cyclists
    Temporary traffic management associated with resealing work on Moorhouse Ave eastbound between Antigua St & Durham St is very dangerous for cyclists. The cycle lane between Antigua St & Montreal St is coned off, forcing cyclists into the general traffic lanes at the same time as the two rightmost lanes are merged into the left hand lane. There is no advance warning of this cycle lane closure, with the lack of road markings on this section of Moorhouse making this more dangerous than usual. But wait, things get worse. Between Montreal St & Durham St all the traffic on Moorhouse Ave is squeezed through a single lane running down the shoulder and cycle lane. Again there is no warning at all that motorists will be forced into the cycle lane, and no Temporary Speed Limit in place. Maybe Integrated Traffic Solutions (ITS) could explain why they devised and installed a Traffic Management Plan that appears at odds with the requirements of the Code of Practice for Temporary Traffic Management & CTOC’s Local Operating Procedures? And CTOC could explain why they approved it?
  • Temporary traffic management dangerous for cyclists
    Temporary traffic management on Ferry Rd between SH74 Tunnel Rd & SH74A Rutherford St is dangerous for cyclists. Westbound, vehicles coming round the corner from the Tunnel Rd roundabout are almost immediately forced into the cycle lane. There is no advance warning of this, nor is there a 30kph Temporary Speed Limit in place to at least soften the impact. Eastbound, cyclists are forced out of the cycle lane by a line of cones at the same time as cars are squeezed past the median pedestrian island. Again there is no warning of any works affecting the cycle lane. Maybe the City Care STMS on site (in the yellow vest in the photo) could explain why he ignored the safety of cyclists and the requirements of the Code of Practice for Temporary Traffic Management & CTOC’s Local Operating Procedures when setting up, and being legally responsible for, this site?
  • Dip in footpath
    There is a dip in the footpath outside 19 Menzies Street. I tripped in in when walking past on Monday morning. This trip has resulted in a broken ankle which is now in plaster.
  • poor phasing causjng traffic queues
    On 30/6/15 at 5.00pm. noticed that green light phasing at Matai St / Staven Rd intersection for southbound traffic heading south on on Straven Road is not lasting long enough. Traffic building up all the way back up to Fendalton Rd. Matai street westbound traffic getting a much longer green light phasing. This set of lights is not normally a problem. But was very noticeable tonight.
  • And more roadworks signs blocking cycle lane (x2)
    The westbound and eastbound cycle lanes on Avonside Dr approaching Stanmore Rd are both blocked by Men At Work roadworks signs. The sign in the westbound cycle lane (see photo) could easily be placed on the wide footpath without impeding pedestrians (like the Gayhurst Bridge detour sign just up the road from it). The sign in the eastbound cycle lane would still be visible to approaching road users if it was placed hard up against the wooden railings (or even on the other side of the railings), which would allow cyclists to get past whilst staying within the cycle lane.
  • And another roadworks sign blocking cycle lane
    Westbound cycle lane on Kotare St between Puriri St & Clyde Rd is blocked by a Traffic R Us roadworks sign. Note the careful placement right next to the cycle lane separator (bollard) and with the stand placed in the middle of the cycle lane to totally block it. Why not place it on the grass area to the left of the footpath – the yellow “no standing” lines will ensure it is not obscured by parked cars so will be visible to all approaching road users.
  • Yet another roadworks sign blocking cycle lane
    Men At Work have blocked the northbound cycle lane on Centaurus Rd just before Kowhai Tce with a roadworks sign (ironically it is an “Extreme Care Cyclists Merging” sign). Why they didn’t place it on the grass berm immediately next to where it is currently blocking the cycle lane is a mystery – it still would have been visible to all approaching road users without endangering cyclists.
  • Roadworks sign blocking cycle lane
    TrafficWise have blocked the southbound cycle lane on Gasson St just past the Carlyle St corner with a “Roadworks” sign. The footpath next to this section of cycle lane is almost 3m wide, so the sign could be placed there without blocking the cycle lane or footpath. Ironically, the next sign (which is located on the shoulder between the cycle lane & footpath) warns of “Cyclists Merging”, so the STMS who blocked the cycle lane with the “Roadworks” sign should have known better than to place it in the cycle lane.
  • Temporary traffic management dangerous for cyclists
    Temporary traffic management for work on Linwood Ave between Aldwins Rd & Hereford St forces cyclists out of the westbound (towards city) cycle lane without any advance warning for cyclists or drivers. To make matters worse, one general traffic lane is also closed, forcing cyclists across one lane and into the second, at the same time as motorists are trying to merge into that single lane, and all within a 50kph area (no Temporary Speed Limit needed apparently!). It is odd that there is no warning of the cycle lane closure, as Men At Work have heaps of other signs at the site (gated “Roadworks” signs, gated “Left Lane Closed” signs, three “Keep Right” arrow signs and a temporary bus stop sign). So either they have run out of “Extreme Care Cyclists Merging” signs or don’t consider them necessary.
  • Roadworks dangerous for cyclists (cyclists not in TMP)
    Temporary traffic management set up by Fulton Hogan on Lincoln Road on either side of the railway crossing directs vehicles into the kerbside cycle lanes in both directions without any advance warning. I can only presume that Fulton Hogan have run out of “Extreme Care Cyclists Merging” signs, as well as the signs needed for a 30kph Temporary Speed Limit (as required in this situation by CTOC’s Local Operating Procedures).
  • Temporary traffic management dangerous for cyclists
    The westbound cycle lane and a traffic lane on Moorhouse Ave have been closed between Antigua St & Stuart Mill St due to SCIRT works. Integrated Traffic Solutions have provided no advance warning of the cycle lane closure for approaching cyclists or drivers, though they have put out gated “Lane Closed” signs to warn drivers of the closure of the lefthand traffic lane (so drivers will be busy watching for merging cars but not bikes as cyclists are forced to merge across two lanes of traffic).
  • Cycle lane blocked with no advance warning
    The westbound cycle lane on Moorhouse Ave immediately after the Fitzgerald Ave corner has been coned off by Stella Traffic so a digger and other equipment can be stored in it. There is no advance warning at all for westbound cyclists or drivers, of either the cycle lane closure or of any works at all on the road ahead.
  • Roadworks dangerous for cyclists
    The northbound cycle lane on SH74A Rutherford Street crossing the Heathcote River has been haphazardly blocked by cones for the last week without any advance warning for cyclists or motorists. The Traffic Management Plan for this work (TMP #28730 on http://www.tfc.govt.nz/current-conditions/roadworks/) describes the work as requiring “cones on the shoulders on the bridge” and states the impacts as only “Shoulder Closure”. Now, anyone who knows this bridge (or looks on Google Streetview) will know that there are cycle lanes on the bridge but no shoulders, so how Traffic R Us could submit and CTOC approve this TMP is a mystery. There are also median pedestrian islands at both ends of the bridge, which means that there is not enough room for both a cyclist and truck to safely get past the blocked cycle lane. And with over 1,100 trucks crossing this bridge every day, the “temporary traffic management” here seems a disaster waiting to happen.
  • Roadworks exceptionally hazardous to cyclists (and pedestrians)
    Temporary traffic management set up by Fulton Hogan on SH74A Garlands Rd at Cumnor Tce is very dangerous for cyclists & pedestrians. The westbound cycle lane has been dug up so changes can be made to the layout of the Cumnor Tce intersection, but the current placement of cones between the cycle and traffic lanes (without any taper to close the cycle lane off) directs cyclists into the dug up worksite(which also doubles as a temporary pedestrian footpath!). With the worksite hidden on the other side of a humpback bridge, cyclists will have to suddenly swerve into the general traffic lane to get past safely (provided they aren’t hit by a car or truck travelling at 50kph past the worksite). At least Fulton Hogan have finally put up the token “Extreme Care Cyclists Merging” sign (it only took them 2 weeks after starting work to do this!). Unfortunately they also put another “Extreme Care Cyclists Merging” sign on the other side of Garlands Rd for eastbound traffic, although there are no works affecting this side of the road and the eastbound cycle remains clear. The Traffic Management Plan for this work (TMP #28627) still lists the impacts of this work as only “Vehicle Lane(s) Closed”, which is a far cry from blocking both the cycle lane and the only footpath across the Heathcote River. Maybe one of the Temporary Traffic Management Coordinators from CTOC could actually go to this site and conduct a CoPTTM full audit so it can be brought up to a safe standard (or alternatively, this being a CCC job, maybe they could remove Fulton Hogan as the temporary traffic management contractor and withhold payment for the non-compliant “services” already imposed on road users)?
  • Car Tyres (about 20) Dumped on foot path outside building
    79 -81 Thackeray Street Waltham Christchurch old car tyres dumped outside our buildings last week end, could be a fire hazard if some choose to set fire to them - could they please be removed asap please
  • Pothole - causing significant damage
    There are many potholes in this street with a signficant one, half way down. This is causing major problems, damage to cars and most importantly it causes vehicles to swerve. It's a busy street, located close to a primary school so many children walk down here - please urgently repair. Note this has been repaired many times before with limited successs (they reappear over time).
  • Burnt out car and hoarding
    A resident within the street has a burnt out car parked outside his property and significant hoardes significant items in his front yard, grass verge and footpath.
  • Missing Drain Cover - DANGER !!!!
    On the eastern side of Colombo st, there is a drain cover missing leaving a large drop and big danger to the public
  • Abandoned Vehicle
    Car reg NU5333 has been parked outside 53 Picton Ave for at least two months without moving. Rego is expired since 11/05/15 and is causing parking issues. Many thanks, have a nice day.
  • Traffic lights missing sequence for green signal for straight going traffic between Straven Rd & Clarence St
    I have been biking on this road for the past two years and in the last two days between 4-5 pm (my time to ride on this road) at the traffic signal, I had to wait for three signals to change before I could go straight on to Straven Road from Clarence Street. If you are waiting on Clarence Street to go straight ahead, first the green light will come on for the traffic to turn right and then it should should turn green for the traffic to go straight. However, it turns green for the traffic to turn right and then instead of turning green for the straight traffic, it turns green for the Riccarton road traffic. The signal does it twice before it allows the striaght going traffic to go between Clarence Street and Straven Road.
  • Abandoned silver car
    There is an abandoned silver car on Meadowville Ave outside #1. This car has been left for weeks and not been moved nor claimed
  • Abandoned Vehicle
    Looks like we have an abandoned vehicle outside our office Dark Blue, Nissan Pulsar, no plates, unlocked, has been parked outside on the road for a few weeks now
  • No-parking yellow lines needed
    Yellow no-parking lines are needed on the narrow roadside opposite our address to prevent vehicles from blocking access to our double garage which is accessed directly from the road (no driveway).
  • Multiple faulty street lights - Lyttelton
    There are 2-3 faulty street lights either side of 17 Selwyn Road in Lyttelton. These were noticed to be faulty on 2nd June 2015.
  • Road surface uneven
    buses travel too fast for the poor road surface - particularly protruding manhole covers and shake the houses in the area very badly. This has Been continual since the road was repaired quickly after severe eq damage. The speed of busses constitutes a danger to pedestrian and cycle traffic.
  • Glass bits through cycle path
    Lots of glass fragments throughout cycleway heading north of Kotare Street
  • Footpath constantly blocked by bins etc from nearby store
    The footpath is constantly been blocked by pellets, bins and courier vehicles from the Hunting and Fishing store. The reason that the space provided on the site can not be used for this purpose is that staff for this store use this as car parking. I have witnessed a member of the public on a wheelchair struggling with manoeuvring around this and it also forces pedestrians onto the road.
  • P60 sign missing
    P60 sign missing os 10a allen Street
  • Danger to wheelchairs
    Outside 100 Queenspark Drive, there is a wide area of very rough gravel; try the opposwite side of the street, and there is another strip of gravel. Both have been there for months. I had to help a gent in a wheelchair get past by going onto the road!
  • Crashed BMW
    Last night someone crashed a BMW on the corner of Morrison Ave and Sawyers Arms Road. It looks to now be abandon.
  • Sewer manhole bump1 update
    A sewer manhole in approximately this location on Country Palms is significantly higher than the road surface and causes quite a significant bump to drive over. Can it be trimmed down to road height?
  • Street light not working
    Hi there, There is a street light not working outside 75 Buckhurst Avenue, Wigram Skies. This has not been working for sometime now. Thank you.
  • Nielsen signs not visible
    Buslane signs on both sides of the bend so you can only see 1 sign at a time where by law you need to have both signs front and back clearly visible.
  • Seal is wearing off1 update
    Hi the seal is wearing off making spots of shingle on the road on Western Valley road on the hill section in a couple of spots. The whole road was resealed earlier in the year so not sure what’s happened at this spot. It would be good if it could get fixed as it’s quite dangerous if you are coming down hill and hit it as you could spin out. Thanks
  • Crossing signal constantly beeping1 update
    One of the crossing signals at the intersection of Barbadoes St and Edgeware Rd has become stuck, and has been beeping all night long. This has happened several times in the past year. It's very loud, and there is a good chance that everyone in the area has been driven mad by sleep deprivation.
  • Shared use path blocked by roadworks sign
    The shared use cyclist & pedestrian path eastbound on SH76 Port Hills Rd as it goes under SH74 Tunnel Rd is blocked by a temporary speed limit sign. With the sign on the shared use path, there is not enough space to get around it and stay on the sealed path, which could be quite dangerous with a slope to the left and then having to dodge around the pole for the permanent 50kph speed limit sign immediately after the temporary sign. And with ALL cyclists directed onto the shared use path 25m before this sign, this is a crash waiting to happen. Maybe Fulton Hogan (the temporary traffic management contractor) could explain why they put the sign blocking the shared use path? Also, Fulton Hogan might want to explain why they have left the permanent 50kph speed limit sign uncovered, even though it is after the 30kph temporary speed limit sign and very visible? Presumably this means that the legal, enforceable speed limit through here is 50kph? If so, this is likely to be dangerous for motorists & cyclists, as anybody turning into or out of Laing Cres or Scruttons Rd won’t be expecting eastbound vehicles to be travelling at 50kph, so are likely to misjudge how much time they have to turn across approaching vehicles safely.
  • Another “Cyclist Merging” sign with no roadworks
    City Care have an “Extreme Care Cyclists Merging” sign on Waltham Rd northbound between Eastern Tce & Rogers St, but there are no works at all affecting the cycle lane (or any part of the road), so no need for drivers to watch for merging cyclists. Why can’t City Care take down or cover the Cyclist Merging sign when they remove the cones & suchlike from their worksite? If they leave these signs up when they do not apply, drivers and cyclists will just ignore them in future.
  • Temporary traffic management dangerous for cyclists
    Northbound cycle lane on Manchester St between High St & Cashel St has been coned off by McConnell Dowell without any advance warning for cyclists or drivers that cyclists will be forced into the general traffic lane. Also, why is the cycle lane closed off when no work is being done (photographed on Saturday) and the works only affect the footpath (not the cycle lane or road)?
  • “Cyclist Merging” sign but no roadworks
    Nova Traffic Management have left an “Extreme Care Cyclists Merging” sign on Victoria St southbound (just after Bealey Ave intersection) for over a week without there being any works at all affecting the cycle lane (or any part of the road), so there is no need for drivers to watch for merging cyclists. If incorrect signs are left after roadworks have finished, drivers and cyclists will just ignore them in future.
  • Cycle lane blocked
    The westbound cycle lane on Ferry Rd between Moorhouse Ave & Lancaster St has been coned off by Transfield Services. There is no advance warning of the cycle lane closure (there is actually no advance warning of any works at all), and without a Keep Right sign and taper motorists might be a bit surprised to have cyclists popping into their lane in front of them.
  • Mobile VMS trailer blocking cycle lane
    A mobile VMS trailer is blocking the westbound cycle lane on Ferry Rd between Barbour St & Wilsons Rd. Why not locate it on the other side of Barbour St, where there is a parking shoulder between the cycle lane and the footpath – looks like it would have been totally clear of the cycle lane whilst still leaving plenty of room on the footpath for pedestrians? Oddly, on Moorhouse Ave on the other side of the Wilsons Rd intersection where there are 2 traffic lanes hard up against the kerb (no cycle lane or parking shoulder), CSP have another mVMS trailer which is located entirely on the footpath. Presumably if they had parked it like this one on Ferry Rd it would have restricted one of the traffic lanes and possibly inconvenienced some motorists.
  • Roadworks sign blocking cycle lane
    Southbound cycle lane on Centaurus Rd between Kowhai Tce & Austin Kirk Ln is blocked by an “Extreme Care Cyclists Merging” sign. Although it is nice to see this type of sign being used, placing it so it totally blocks the cycle lane does seem pointless, especially when it is hidden around a left hand bend so approaching motorists can’t see it(and any cyclists forced out of the cycle lane in front of them) until they’re upon it.
  • Temporary traffic management dangerous for cyclists
    Works on Tennyson St between Southampton St & Eastern Terrace have narrowed the eastbound lane, which forces vehicles into the cycle lane at the end of the off-road cycle path. There is no advance warning for either cyclists or drivers that this will happen. This site is especially dangerous as the first 110m of the narrowing only sends vehicles down the parking shoulder, which then changes to an on-road cycle lane, with cyclists joining from the off-road path. This is the second time in 2 weeks that Nova Traffic Management have installed the same setup here, despite it appearing to be dangerous for cyclists and non-compliant with both CCC’s Local Operating Procedures and NZTA’s Code of Practice for Temporary Traffic Management. As the previous setup was reported to CCC (via FixMyStreet #5522) on 24th April and passed to the CCC Traffic Management Team on 25th April (Customer Service Request #91918093), maybe CCC could confirm whether this site is safe & compliant and, if not, what action they took to rectify it previously and why Nova have reinstalled the same (non-compliant) setup again?

  • Temporary traffic management very dangerous for cyclists
    The eastbound cycle lane on Humphreys Dr between Linwood Ave & Ferry Rd has been coned off by City Care. The only advance warning sign is a Roadworks sign with a Shoulder Closed supplementary plate – which is clearly wrong as there is a cycle symbol painted in the cycle lane 5m past this sign, and another cycle symbol immediately before the first cone blocking the cycle lane. Consequently there is no advance warning that the cycle lane is closed, or that cyclists will be forced into the same lane as cars & trucks travelling at over 70kph. This section of Humphreys Dr has a 70kph speed limit, has a lane width less than 4m and the cycle lane was coned off for over 200m round a curve – yet for some reason City Care didn’t see any need to follow CCC’s own requirements for accommodating cyclists on a work site (http://tmpforchch.co.nz/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/Cycle-Booklet-Finall-Small.pdf) or the national standards in the Code of Practice for Temporary Traffic Management.
  • Roadworks sign blocking cycle lane
    Eastbound cycle lane on Marriner St is blocked by a Road Closed Ahead sign between the Esplanade & Burgess St. There seems to be plenty of room on the kerb buildout for the TAB sign, so why wasn’t the roadworks sign placed there, clear of the cycle lane and still visible to approaching traffic? CTOC’s own guidance on sign placement around cycle lanes (http://tmpforchch.co.nz/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/Cycle-Booklet-Finall-Small.pdf) states that placing the sign in the cycle lane is the last option and would only be acceptable on a few sites e.g. “when you have a narrow street with no shoulder that is against a retaining wall” – not the case here at all. Up until at least 2nd May the cycle lane here and on the other side of Marriner Rd was blocked by two temporary speed limit signs (reported to CCC via FixMyStreet #5464 on 12th April, and passed to the CCC Traffic Management Team also on 12th April (Customer Service Request #91912388), which sadly resulted in absolutely no action at all from Fulton Hogan (the traffic management contractor).
  • Temporary traffic management dangerous for cyclists
    Roadworks on Moorhouse Ave eastbound between Antigua St & Durham St have closed the cycle lane and two traffic lanes. The traffic management contractor (ITS) has thoughtfully provided a cyclist detour, but has then stuck a “Keep Right” sign right in the middle of the cycle lane BEFORE the detour (without even putting a taper in front of it), forcing cyclists into the melee of merging traffic. Also, the cyclist “detour” directs cyclists to “dismount & use footpath” before herding them onto the footpath so they can walk the 450m to the end of the roadworks. This seems quite unnecessary as there is a 30kph temporary speed limit in place and cyclists should be able to safely travel in the nearside (not contraflow) traffic lane – just up the road between Selwyn St & Waller Tce ITS closed the cycle lane & nearside lane, forcing cyclists in with the cars and trucks on the two remaining lanes for over 300m without seeing any need to install a lower temporary speed limit.
  • Unnecessary temporary traffic management dangerous for cyclists
    The westbound cycle lane on Main Rd in Moncks Bay is blocked by a cone taper “protecting” a Site Exit sign for the Clifton pump station repair worksite. There is no need for the Site Exit sign to be in the middle of the cycle lane, as there is a parking shoulder between the cycle lane and the footpath where it could be safely located (and where it was located prior to works last month that closed the cycle lanes in both directions and narrowed the traffic lanes). It would appear that the traffic management contractor (Fulton Hogan) couldn’t be bothered moving the sign clear of the cycle lane after those works were finished, and has just left it there endangering cyclists on this very popular riding route. There is also no advance warning that the cycle lane is blocked, but that is not unexpected as Fulton Hogan didn’t see any need to provide any advance warning of the cycle lane closure (or cars being forced into the westbound cycle lane) during their works last month either.
  • Footpath still blocked by roadworks sign (x2)
    Footpath on Maffeys Rd (just above intersection with McCormacks Bay Rd) blocked in two places by roadworks signs. There is no footpath on the other side of the road, so pedestrians are forced onto the road to get around these signs (and the first sign is located just after the 180 degree bend leading to the bottom section of Maffeys Rd, so visibility to pedestrians on the road is limited). These signs were previously reported to CCC (via FixMyStreet #5416 on 31st March) with the report passed on to the CCC Traffic Management Team (also on 31st March, Customer Service Request #91908075). CTOC advised that they “have been in contact with contractors to get these sorted”, but over a month later both these signs are still there blocking the footpath, which is a sad indictment on Fulton Hogan (the traffic management contractor), SCIRT & CTOC.
  • Two Street Lights
    Hi There, We have two white street light out in Brittan street Linwood Christchurch, they have been like this for some time. Details as follow, Outside House number 26 and the number on the pole is (C5A 82) Outside House number 28 and the number on the pole is (C5A 83) Can we get this sorted as soon as, as this is creating a very dark part of the street at night... Thanks in advance
  • Sump grates in new cycle path are a hazard to cyclists.
    See photo. The new cycle path is not particularly wide at this point, and by having grates that are hazardous the capacity of the cycle path is significantly reduced. Cyclists will need to give these grates a wide berth. Perhaps the grates have been installed incorrectly? If they were rotated 90 degrees they would be much better. I certainly hope that this is to not to be the new standard design for storm water grates in Christchurch.
  • Street light not working1 update

  • Wooldridge/Wairakei/Roydvale Intersection Roundabout
    The Wooldridge/Wairakei/Roydvale Intersection Roundabout is in need of some maintenance. Only 1 of the 4 signs is still standing, the curbing is half missing, pavers have been lifted, there is no garden in it anymore. It is an eyesore! And as is it near the airport where a number of rental car places are, a lot of tourists visit this area, which is not a good look. (Tait electonics new connection to the services under this roundabout has not helped this).
  • deep gutters need cleaning out- flooding issue
    The gutters outside 52 Condell Ave and all the way down to Blighs Road need cleaning out.The gutters and gullys are full of leaves, and with the rain there is flooding and it also affects the rainwater draining from the house gutters.I know PLEASE do something about these very old gutters, and in the meantime PLEASE will you have them cleaned regularly.Many Thanks.
  • Unnecessary temporary traffic management unsafe for cyclists
    The southbound cycle lane & shoulder on Victoria St have been coned off outside the Duncan Cotterill building at 148 Victoria St, forcing cyclists into the general traffic lane. Although there is an “Extreme Care Cyclists Merging” sign, there appears to be no need for the cycle lane to be closed, as the coned off area is just being used for parking by contractors. The traffic Management Plan for these works (#27639 on http://www.tfc.govt.nz/current-conditions/roadworks/) only refers to a shoulder closure with a pedestrian walkway at times – nowhere does it include closure of the cycle lane, and there are no stated impacts on cyclists!
  • Unnecessary temporary traffic management unsafe for cyclists
    The northbound cycle lane, shoulder & part of the general traffic lane on Victoria St have been coned off outside a construction site at 169 Victoria St, forcing cyclists into the general traffic lane. Although there is an “Extreme Care Cyclists Merging” sign, there appears to be no need for the cycle lane to be closed, as absolutely nothing is happening in the coned off area (especially on the Saturday of a long weekend). If the building works require the cycle lane to be closed, why is it necessary to keep it closed outside working hours on the site? How hard and/or dangerous would it be for the site Traffic Controller to move the cones to the edge of the shoulder, reopening the cycle lane?
  • Cycle lane obstructed by fallen over roadworks sign
    A fallen over City Care roadworks sign is blocking two thirds of the northbound cycle lane on Gasson St between Wordsworth St & Kingsley St. It has been like this since last week (from at least 17th April), despite City Care traffic management staff being present each working day on the other side of Gasson St for installation of UFB cables (see photo).
  • Cycle lane blocked with no advance warning
    City bound cycle lane on Hagley Ave between Selwyn St & Saint Asaph St has been blocked by City Care so they can install a new water main, but there is no advance warning for either cyclists or drivers of the closure. This site has been previously reported to CCC for not providing warning of the cycle lane closure (see FixMyStreet #5293 – which resulted in no action at all) but since then this section of Hagley Ave has been resealed, requiring the traffic management to be reinstalled. Unfortunately, despite the newly painted cycle symbols on the cycle lane, this site still lacks any advance warning of the cycle lane closure (and with the cones down the median, there isn’t enough space to get both a cyclist & car safely past the work site.
  • Cycle lane blocked with no advance warning
    Southbound cycle lane on Hagley Ave south of Saint Asaph St intersection is blocked by a “No Road Marking” sign and cones, associated with the An Accessible City resealing and remarking of Hagley Ave through to Moorhouse Ave. An “Extreme Care Cyclists Merging” sign was in place on Hagley Ave before being blown over in the strong winds of last week, but unfortunately the traffic management contractor (Fulton Hogan) hasn’t put it back up. So cyclists are forced into the general traffic lane just as they are leaving the intersection, with no advance warning for them or drivers. Fulton Hogan ignoring this blown over sign since at least the 17th April casts significant doubt on the effectiveness of the site inspections required to be undertaken, especially when road marking has been ongoing during this period.
  • “Cyclist Merging” sign but no roadworks
    Traffic R Us have placed an “Extreme Care Cyclists Merging” sign on Moorhouse Ave westbound between Antigua St and Stuart Mill St, but there are no works at all affecting the cycle lane (or any part of the road), so no need for drivers to watch for merging cyclists. Placing and/or leaving signs which are not relevant will just lead to drivers and cyclists ignoring them. This sign is within the initial Roadworks sign for Fulton Hogan’s Accessible City works on Moorhouse Ave between Selwyn St & Lincoln Rd/Hagley Ave (which still features another unnecessary “Extreme Care Cyclists Merging” sign on Moorhouse Ave just after Selwyn St, which was notified to CCC on 30th March – see FixMyStreet #5410).
  • Building work dangerous for cyclists (Cyclists not in TMP)
    Westbound cycle lane on Armagh St leaving the Durham St intersection is fenced off due to work on the Awly building, with no advance warning for cyclists or drivers of this cycle lane closure. The cycle lane has been blocked since work started on the building a couple of years ago, but has become even more dangerous since the Armagh St bridge was reopened, bringing the cycle lane heading towards Hagley Park right up to the Durham St intersection and then straight into the “Trucks Crossing” sign outside the building worksite. Interestingly, despite blocking the cycle lane, neither of the Traffic Management Plans for the Awly building describe any impacts on cyclists (#23897 & 24348 on http://www.tfc.govt.nz/current-conditions/roadworks/)!
  • Cycle lane blocked with no advance warning
    Eastbound cycle lane on Tuam St is blocked in one location and obstructed in two more locations between Madras St & Barbadoes St. There is no advance warning for cyclists or drivers that cyclists will be forced into the general traffic lane, which is made more fraught than normal due to the restricted lane width caused by cones placed down the centre of the road. These works seem to be associated with the Tuam St one-way conversion (part of An Accessible City), but the traffic management plan for them (TMP #27699 on http://www.tfc.govt.nz/current-conditions/roadworks/) does not include any impacts on cyclists, which seems at odds with reality.
  • “Events” roadworks sign blocking cycle lane
    City Care have totally blocked the eastbound cycle lane on Main Road approaching Nayland St with a roadworks sign advising of the Anzac Day Service “Event” happening on the Esplanade. This seems incredibly dangerous for cyclists given the fine weather combined with the large number of cars heading to the Service. Especially as the sign could have been placed in front of the Sumner SLSC Clubhouse Rebuild sign, clear of the cycle lane, footpath & Clubhouse driveway whilst still remaining visible to approaching road users.
  • Cycle lane blocked with no advance warning
    Westbound cycle lane and left hand traffic lane on Saint Asaph St between Ferry Rd and Madras St have been coned off due to building work at 262 Saint Asaph St. Unfortunately there is no advance warning for either cyclists or drivers that the cycle lane is closed and that cyclists will be forced across merging vehicles into the right hand lane (although Whites Traffic Management have placed gated Lane Closed signs to inform drivers that a traffic lane is closed ahead!). The traffic management plan (TMP #28088 on http://www.tfc.govt.nz/current-conditions/roadworks/) lists the impacts as including “Cyclists Affected”, but don’t seem to then actually provide for cyclists as required by CTOC’s Local Operating Procedures (Section 19 of http://tmpforchch.co.nz/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/CTOC-LOP_v4_FINAL_20140919.pdf).
  • Roadworks unsafe for cyclists & pedestrians
    Fencing associated with building works on Armagh St between New Regent St & Colombo St is blocking the westbound cycle lane, once again with no advance warning at all for approaching cyclists and drivers. The fencing also blocks the footpath, so pedestrians are forced to walk along the general traffic lane to get around the site. Again there is no warning that the footpath is closed, and with no alternate route provided on the carriageway (in a suitably delineated and protected section of the existing traffic lane) or guidance across the carriageway to a footpath on the opposite side, pedestrians are just ambling down the middle of the road to get past.
  • Roadworks sign blocking cycle lane
    A Temporary Speed Limit sign for roadworks associated with repairs to the Clifton pump station is blocking the eastbound cycle lane on Main Rd in Moncks Bay. This sign had previously been located closer to the guard rail between the cycle lane and pedestrian path beside the estuary but was partially blown over in the strong winds on the 14th. It was relocated from the 15th so as to totally block the cycle lane.
  • Roadworks unsafe for cyclists
    Works on Tennyson St between Southampton St & Eastern Terrace have narrowed the eastbound lane, which forces vehicles into the cycle lane at the end of the off-road cycle path. There is no advance warning for either cyclists or drivers that this will happen. This site is especially dangerous as the first 110m of the narrowing only sends vehicles down the parking shoulder, which then changes to an on-road cycle lane, with cyclists joining from the off-road path.
  • Cars parked on footpath
    Cars are constantly being parked on the footpaths on the corner of Francella and Wickham Streets. Stacks of tyres and other rubbish also obstructs the footpath
  • Overgrowing shrubs & trees on roadside
    The bushes and trees between the road and footpath outside 167-169 Fendalton Road have grown thick and block visibility of driveways and the cycle lanes for residents and passing motorists.
  • Street lights out
    Three street lights out on west side of Williams Street opposite CPIT Facilities Management building. There has been an increase in graffiti with the lights out.
  • Tagging
    The telstra or Big Electric Green Box on Worcester Street corner Tancred Street has been tagged...need to be repainted.
  • Bus lane ends sign
    On the bus lane sign outside 101 Hills rd, the sign is requiring a bus lane ends sign.
  • Entrance to Barrington Mall dangerous for all.
    Pedestrians have great difficulty safely walking past entrance to the mall carpark.
  • Parking in redundant bus stop creates pinch point for cyclists and drivers.
    The bus stop on Simeon St outside the Barrington Mall car park is no longer in use as a bus stop. Private vehicles are now being parked there. The gap between these parked vehicles and the traffic island is very tight and dangerous. This was less of a problem when buses used the bus stop as they were not parked there for more than a few moments. Possible solution: ticket the vehicles parked in the bus stop or, preferably, paint dashed yellow lines along the kerb so as to stop people parking there in the first place. There is plenty of other parking in the area. Thank you.
  • Roadworks sign obstructing cycle lane
    A “Road Closed Ahead” sign is blocking the eastbound cycle lane on Armagh St approaching the Madras St intersection. It has been placed at the end of a kerb buildout, so could easily be placed on the woodchipped areas on the buildout and still retain excellent sightlines for approaching road users. Or how about moving it back a few meters into the parking bays after the kerb buildout, where it would still be visible but wouldn’t be blocking the cycle lane?
  • Cycle lane blocked with no advance warning
    Contractors painting the cycle lane with green paint have blocked off the eastbound cycle lane on Moorhouse Ave at Selwyn St, but there is no advance warning for cyclists or drivers of this cycle lane closure.
  • Blocked footpath unsafe for pedestrians
    Footpath on southern side of Tuam St just before the Colombo St intersection has been fenced off for work on the footpath, forcing pedestrians onto the road to get round the fenced off area. With the footpath on the other side of Tuam St blocked off, and half of the road dug up, it is not like pedestrians can avoid this blockage. The irony is that these works (see also FixMyStreet #5498) are part of An Accessible City, but the traffic management seems to only cater for access by car.
  • Cycle lane closed with no advance warning
    Eastbound cycle lane on Tuam St between Montreal St & Durham St is closed off with cones, but there is no advance warning for cyclists or drivers that this will happen. The left hand traffic lane is also closed, but there are gated “Lane Closed” signs to warn drivers of the lane closure ahead! Well after where the cycle lane & left lane are closed, there is an “Extreme Care Cyclists Merging” sign (this sign was put up as a response to FixMyStreet #5342), but it would appear that the contractor (Fulton Hogan) can’t be bothered to move it as the traffic management changes.
  • Dangerous water break1 update
    Water is seeping from the roundabout across the left turn from Estuary Rd into Bridge St, towards the Bridge St Bridge. There has been a leak since the roundabout repair months ago and the road is always completely wet - see photo. When Winter arrives, this will become black ice if there is a frost right on the corner. This is a serious safety issue, especially near a school.
  • Street Lights Not Working
    The Street Lights on England Street between Worcester St and Hereford St are not working, Very Dark
  • Roadworks unsafe for cyclists
    Roadworks associated with repairs to the Clifton pump station are dangerous for cyclists on Main Rd travelling in either direction. Eastbound, motorists are forced into the cycle lane opposite the worksite, but there is no advance warning for cyclists or drivers that this will happen. Because of the curve in the road at the worksite, and the concrete wall immediately next to the road, it is not possible to see that vehicles are forced into the cycle lane before they reach the start of the cone taper. Although there is a 30kph TSL in place, this seems more intended to stop cars, buses and trucks from crashing into each other or scraping the concrete wall than to provide a safer environment for cyclists past the worksite. Westbound, the cycle lane and part of the general traffic lane are coned off, so cyclists are forced to “merge” with the cars, buses & trucks to get past the worksite. Again there is no advance warning for cyclists or drivers that this will happen.
  • Roadworks unsafe for all road users
    Storm water repairs have closed one of the two lanes on Manchester St approaching the Bealey Ave intersection from the north. A truck removing trench supports from the worksite was parked blocking the second lane, forcing vehicles heading south to cross the double yellow lines into the northbound lane to get to the intersection. There was no additional temporary traffic management at the worksite, such as manual traffic controllers, leaving drivers to decide if & when it was safe to pass the truck, without knowing whether cars or trucks would come round the corner from Bealey Ave straight at them. I spoke to the truck driver/operator (as he was unhappy about having the site photographed) about the lack of traffic management, and especially the lack of manual traffic controllers, and his response was “I don’t see what the big fuss is about”. He followed this up with “You think we should stop everything in Christchurch until we have the temporary traffic management in place?”. This is a SCIRT worksite, so this attitude to safety is deeply worrying, as it may well be reflected at the hundreds of other SCIRT worksites across the city. Whilst it is very common to see a lack of consideration for the safety of cyclists and pedestrians at SCIRT worksites, making worksites dangerous for all road users is a new low.
  • Cycle lane blocked with no advance warning
    Westbound cycle lane on Fendalton Rd between Holmwood Rd & Wairarapa Tce has been blocked by a rack of scaffolding equipment. Total extent of temporary traffic management is the three cones seen to the right of the equipment rack – would be interesting to know what was specified in the Traffic Management Plan for this work.
  • Roadworks sign obstructing cycle lane
    Westbound cycle lane on Centaurus Rd approaching Colombo St roundabout is blocked by a Roadworks sign. Why not place it on the footpath, which looks wide enough for the sign whilst still leaving 1.2m for pedestrians to get past it safely.
  • P15 time limit signs
    The two P15 minute time limit signs are down at 106 Westminster st, St Albans. There is 1 lying on the ground on the grass verge and the other is in the shop window of 106. Please have these reinstated.
  • Pay n Display meter missing

  • “Cyclist Merging” sign but no roadworks affecting cycle lane (or road)
    Westbound on Fendalton Rd there are gated “Extreme Care Cyclists Merging” signs outside St Barnabas church (Tui St). However, the cycle lane between here and Clyde Rd is not affected by any works – Clyde Rd is the end of the area covered by the TMP (#27784), and is about 500m down the road. Three other roadworks signs for this “worksite” have been either covered up or had the signs taken down (two before the Cyclist Merging signs and one after). Why hasn’t Traffic R Us (the temporary traffic management contractor) taken down the “Cyclists Merging” signs when they no longer apply (just like they’ve taken down or covered three other signs here)? Leaving signs that are no longer relevant up will just cause drivers (& cyclists) to stop paying attention to these types of signs in future.
  • Unnecessary temporary traffic management unsafe for cyclists
    Eastbound cycle lane on Fendalton Rd between St Barnabas St & Snowdon Rd has been coned off forcing cyclists into the nearest general traffic lane. Although there is an “Extreme Care Cyclists Merging” sign approaching here, there is no work going on or anything actually affecting the cycle lane – forcing cyclists to “merge” with the cars, trucks & buses seems unnecessary and dangerous. Why doesn’t Connetics (the temporary traffic management contractor) open up the cycle lane by removing the cones & Keep Right arrow when they are not needed?
  • Non-compliant Temporary Speed Limit at roadworks?
    30kph Temporary Speed Limit (TSL) signs are in place at a worksite on Tennyson St between Colombo St and Eastern Tce. However, there are only 30kph/50kph signs at the start (18 Tennyson St) and end (123 Tennyson St) of the worksite, a distance of about 610m, with no repeater signs between them. This seems inconsistent with the requirement in the Code of Practice for Temporary Traffic Management (CoPTTM) Section C4.4.1 Repeater signs that states: “TSL signs must be repeated at intervals no greater than 400m, as a reminder to road users of the maximum speed”. Does this mean that the approved Traffic Management Plan (TMP) is not consistent with CoPTTM (Section A7.3.1)? And does this affect the legality of the Police trying to enforce the 30kph Temporary Speed Limit here (Section C4.3.1)?
  • Confusing Temporary Speed Limit at roadworks
    A Temporary Speed Limit (TSL) of 30kph is in place on Breezes Rd between Wainoni Rd and Hampshire St (or Pages Rd for eastbound traffic). However, there is a 50kph “School Zone Ends” sign facing westbound drivers outside 212 Breezes Rd which has not been covered and is 280m before the gated 50kph signs derestricting the TSL at Wainoni Rd. What speed limit applies? And why has City Care (the traffic management contractor) left the 50kph sign uncovered (since the TSL extended to here at the start of March), seemingly ignoring the requirements of the Code of Practice for Temporary Traffic Management (CoPTTM): Section C4.4.4 Covering existing speed limits states “When placing a TSL, any existing speed signs within the TSL area that show a speed other than the TSL must be covered”. Does this mean that the approved Traffic Management Plan (TMP) is not consistent with CoPTTM (Section A7.3.1)? And does this affect the legality of the Police trying to enforce the 30kph Temporary Speed Limit (Section C4.3.1)?
  • Roadworks sign blocking cycle lane (x2)
    Connetics worksite on Main Road going past Shag Rock has signs blocking the eastbound and westbound cycle lanes (one in each direction). Eastbound, the initial Roadworks sign has been placed right up against the edge of the cycle lane, giving cyclists the option of passing it on the right (in the general traffic lane with the cars and buses) or on the left (although if they try going to the left of the sign base located 50m up the road they will crash into the sign placed there next to the base – see FixMyStreet #5472). Why not move it to the left, closer to the rail at the side of the road? It will still be visible to approaching road users and will leave enough space for cyclists to pass it safely. Westbound, the initial Roadworks sign has been placed in the middle of the cycle lane on the long straight out of Sumner. This placement totally blocks the cycle lane, forcing cyclists into the general traffic lane or onto the dirt shoulder to the left. There is plenty of space to the left of the cycle lane to locate the sign (looks like it will fit left of the yellow no-stopping lines), where it would still be visible to approaching road users and would leave enough space for cyclists to pass it safely.
  • Roadworks sign base (without sign) blocking cycle lane (x3)
    Connetics worksite has three sign bases (with stands but WITHOUT signs) blocking the eastbound and westbound cycle lanes on Main Road going past Shag Rock. Eastbound, you first encounter one just before the corner (a bit before where the cycle lane ends because of the rockfall containers). Note how the cone is right up to the edge line, and how the Connetics STMS has thoughtfully left a gap to the left of the sign base to go through. Then look again and see that the sign taken off the base has been placed in that gap and weighted down with a sandbag. The second sign base is encountered on the long straight into Sumner, with the sign base right in the middle of the cycle lane – looks like it could easily have been placed further left (on top of the yellow no stopping lines?), creating more space in the cycle lane. Again note the careful placement of the sign next to the base (again weighted down with a sandbag). Westbound, you encounter the third sign base after going around the corner into Moncks Bay. It has been placed just after the cycle lane reappears from underneath the containers – exactly where the considerate cyclist re-enters the cycle lane to allow the cars that have patiently followed them round the corner to pass by. That is until the cyclist has to suddenly swerve back into the traffic lane to avoid the sign base! Again note the careful placement of the sign, this time behind the base, but again weighted down with a sandbag. Has the STMS never read the Code of Practice for Temporary Traffic Management (CoPTTM)? If they had they may recall Section C3.3.2 Positioning of signs, which states “sign bases must not be left in place, without signs attached, in a manner that will be a hazard to any road user, including pedestrians and cyclists” (and not forgetting “not encroaching on a marked cycle lane unless safe to do so”). And who is responsible for ensuring that all Temporary Traffic Management measures are in accordance with CoPTTM? It is quite alarming that contractors are still blocking cycle lanes (apparently contrary to the requirements of CoPTTM) without any effective control or oversight by the relevant Road Controlling Authority.
  • Roadworks sign obstructing cycle lane
    Southbound cycle lane on Centaurus Rd between Whaka Tce and Major Aitken Dr is blocked by a temporary speed limit sign.
  • Roadworks sign obstructing cycle lane
    Temporary speed limit sign is blocking two-thirds of the citybound cycle lane on Wainoni Rd approaching the Breezes Rd intersection. The temporary traffic management contractor has made an effort to stop it blocking the cycle lane entirely by placing one edge of the stand on the footpath. However, as the footpath is about 3 meters wide, why didn’t they place it entirely on the footpath? This would still maintain 1.2m of clear footpath and, according to CTOC, is preferred over placing the sign “half footpath/half cycle lane”.
  • Unnecessary temporary traffic management unsafe for cyclists
    Southbound cycle lane on Colombo St approaching and going through Somerfield St intersection has been coned off forcing cyclists into the general traffic lane. Although there is an “Extreme Care Cyclists Merging” sign approaching here, there is no work going on or anything actually affecting the cycle lane – forcing cyclists to “merge” with the cars, trucks & buses seems unnecessary. Why doesn’t the temporary traffic management contractor open up the cycle lane by removing the cones & Keep Right arrows when they are not needed?
  • Cycle lane blocked with no advance warning
    The eastbound cycle lane (and lane 1) on Humphreys Dr is closed off between Tidal View and the Ferrymead Bridge. There is no advance warning for cyclists or drivers that the cycle lane is closed, especially with it hidden around the corner leading to the Ferry Rd intersection. It is also a change from the “temporary” traffic management which has been here for the last two years, so motorists are not expecting cyclists to be forced into “their” lane this early (until last week the cycle lane was clear until after the Ferry Rd lights).
  • Cycle lane blocked with no advance warning
    Cycle lane heading westbound on Tuam St between Barbadoes St & Madras St is coned off but there is no advance warning of the cycle lane closure for cyclists or drivers. Whilst this section of Tuam St will become one-way eastbound from Monday, at the moment cyclists and drivers are allowed to travel westbound on it, so the temporary traffic management should be set up accordingly.
  • Roadworks unsafe for cyclists
    Plastic pedestrian ramp sticks out halfway across westbound cycle lane on Moorhouse Ave approaching the Selwyn St intersection. Ramp is hard to see at night, and will be particularly dangerous for cyclists turning left into Selwyn St. There is also no advance warning that the cycle lane is obstructed.
  • Mobile VMS trailer dangerous for cyclists
    Sign on mobile VMS trailer overhangs the westbound cycle lane on Main Rd approaching Cliff St in Moncks Bay. Although there are cones alongside the trailer, the sign board extends past them at head height. With the corner of the sign painted black, it would be hard to see at dusk or night time, and would smack an unwary mountain biker in the middle of their face (the lower riding position on a road bike means roadies will just lose the top of their helmet). Why didn’t City Care place the cones around the edge of the sign, rather than just the trailer? Of course, this would then obstruct the cycle lane, so maybe City Care should have parked the trailer with its left side wheel on the footpath (making sure it didn’t then present a danger to pedestrians!).
  • Roadworks sign blocking cycle lane (x2)
    Temporary speed limit signs are blocking the cycle lanes in both directions on Marriner St between the Esplanade & Burgess St. Both of the signs are next to a kerb buildout, so why didn’t Fulton Hogan put them on the wood-chipped areas on the buildouts – they would still be visible to approaching road users and wouldn’t block the cycle lanes?

  • Sumner Rd from Lyttleton to Sumner Needs to BE RE-OPENED
    Dear CCC Roading Authorities, I want you to fix the Sumner Road to connect through to Evans Pass Road and from Lyttleton to Sumner. This has gone on for far too long. I do not accept the excuse that the road is too dangerous due to rock fall hazard. Have you ever been to California, or to rural NZ in the mountains? That sort of astronomically rare hazard is no justification for keeping a vital link between suburbs closed. If this sort of road connected suburbs with property values like Fendalton to Clifton Hill, powerful people would be lobbying for opening and improving the road and it would be done in short order. You are ignoring the people of Lyttleton because you consider that you can get away with it with little political penalty. It's not right and you know it. That road was fine for over 150 years (or however long it's been there) an even in the quakes no one was killed due to rockfall. Take that excuse for closing it off the table and all you have is money. Now tell me when it's going to get opened again? Best regards, Jon

  • Car parked over driveway 2 update
    Car left for several days with back of it hanging over our driveway. Making it dodgy for us to get in and out of our drive when another car is parked on it.
  • Road Safety
    The roundabout at the junction of Gamblins Rd and St Martins Rd has become extremely dangerous for motorists approaching the intersection from Gamblins Rd / the supermarket direction. The divider where the give way road sign is positioned has plantings of very mature flax which block visibility of traffic coming into the roundabout from the right. Since we have to give way to the right, we should have unimpeded visibility to the right.
  • Car is inconsiderately and illegally parked
    Car reg#DQG493 is inconsiderately and illegally parked on the main shared driveway of our house and 3 other houses. It is already blocking portion of the driveway causing residents' cars to likely fall to the roadside canal when moving in to the driveway. Car has been left there for a number of hours already today.
  • Illegally parked car blocking main driveway
    Car is inconsiderately and illegally parked on the main shared driveway of our house and 3 other houses.

Car has been left there for a number of hours already today.
  • Mobile VMS blocking cycle lane
    Mobile VMS trailer blocking eastbound cycle lane on Main Rd opposite Redcliffs School. Trailer itself is only slightly encroaching into cycle lane, but two cones placed next to trailer totally block the cycle lane. Trailer sign currently isn’t in use, so why did the temporary traffic management contractor (City Care) block the cycle lane with the cones when they parked it there, or why did they leave the cones blocking the cycle lane after swinging the sign away from the road?
  • Roadworks sign obstructing footpath
    Temporary speed limit sign is obstructing the footpath on the northern side of Tennyson St between Colombo St & Percival St. The sign is right next to a bushy tree, which only leaves a narrow gap to walk through. Why didn’t the temporary traffic management contractor (Nova) move it forward or back a couple of meters away from the tree (can be offset by up to 20m from the TSL sign on the other side of the road). Or even better, why didn’t they put it in the parking lane right next to its’ current position (just like the Roadworks sign 30 meters up the road)?
  • “Cyclist Merging” sign but all roadworks cleared off road
    Traffic management for works on Colombo St southbound between Byron St & Lawson St have been completely removed from the road and onto the footpath except for an “Extreme Care Cyclists Merging” sign (and the “Shoulder Closed” sign, which is also not appropriate for the site). Why hasn’t the temporary traffic management contractor (City Care) taken down the “Cyclists Merging” sign (and “Shoulder Closed” supplementary plate) after they’d removed all of the cones and “Keep Right” arrow signs from the road? Leaving signs that are no longer relevant up will just cause drivers (& cyclists) to stop paying attention to these types of signs in future.
  • Roadworks sign blocking cycle lane
    Roadworks sign warning of “Trucks Crossing” is blocking the cycle lane on Manchester St southbound just after the Tuam St intersection. Why didn’t the temporary traffic management contractor (Men @ Work) either put it on the footpath (which looks wide enough to still leave plenty of room for pedestrians to pass), or alternatively placed it half on the footpath & half in the cycle lane which, given the width of the cycle lane, should’ve left enough space for a cyclist to pass whilst remaining within the cycle lane?
  • Standing water/storm-water earthquake damage
    It seems the earthquakes caused our end of the street to slump. In the 4 years since there has been standing water in the street around our driveway for all but 4 or 5 days. If we try to push the water to the drain it generally just flows back to our end. I believe the street is not connected to the city stormwater system, just to a soak pit under the road. This is also constantly full as the water level is generally about 5cm below the level of the grate. I understand the council is busy with post-quake repairs but this is becoming a public health issue with mosquitoes breeding in the standing water. I suspect the only way to fix this may be to connect the street to a proper storm water system, or to re-level the entire street to get the fall required to have the water flow towards the (overwhelmed) soak pit. When does council plan to do anything about this, other than the periodic ineffectual (not their fault - it's the state of the road) road sweeper? The picture attached shows the water level after I have swept the gutter as clear as I could - I wanted to show the damage the standing water is doing to the road surface.
  • Cycle lane blocked with no advance warning
    Cycle lane on Armagh St between Montreal St & Durham St is coned off on both sides of the road. There is no warning of the cycle lane closures from either direction (especially for cyclists & vehicles turning right out of Montreal St). The traffic management plan (TMP #27799 on http://www.transportforchristchurch.govt.nz/map/) lists the impacts as “Pedestrians Affected, Shoulder Closure”, which seems to ignore the cycle lanes on this direct route between Hagley Park & the city. It would be interesting to know why the STMS (seen leaning on a cone bar on the left of the photo) proceeded with the site setup even though the TMP does not appear appropriate to the worksite?
  • Cycle lane blocked with no advance warning
    Cycle lane on Linwood Ave between Aldwins Rd & Cashel St heading towards the city (outside 222 Linwood Ave) is coned off to provide temporary pedestrian walkway. There is no advance warning of the cycle lane closure for cyclists or drivers – only a Roadworks sign with “Shoulder Closed” supplementary plate (located next to a green painted cycle lane & cycle symbol).
  • Temporary traffic management unsafe for cyclists
    Cycle lane on Shands Rd approaching and going past Skerten Ave heading towards Hornby is coned off, forcing cyclists into the traffic lane. Approaching here, there are no signs advising that the cycle lane is closed, or that cyclists will be merging with the cars & trucks.
  • Roadworks sign obstructing cycle lane
    Roadworks sign proclaiming “Shoulder Closed” is encroaching onto most of the marked cycle lane on Shands Rd approaching the new signalised intersection with Edmonton Rd heading towards Hornby. There is not enough space to cycle past the sign whilst staying in the cycle lane. This is a 70kph road used by a large number of big trucks, which makes getting safely around the sign a bit nerve-wracking. Why wasn’t the sign placed a meter to the left on the edge of the seal/dirt verge, where it would still be visible without obstructing the cycle lane?
  • Cars parking across cycle path / footpath
    There are cars parked across the cycle path, right after a bend in the road, forcing cyclists to sverve out into the road, at a place where a lot of motorists come around the bend speeding.
  • Roadworks sign
    Roadworks sign is directly in cycle path. There are subsequent blockages heading north on main south including a merge for cycles into traffic. (without any signage for motorists to expect us)
  • Temporary traffic management unsafe for cyclists
    Roadworks on Armagh St between Manchester St & Madras St direct cars into the eastbound cycle lane and then force cyclists out of the cycle lane as the cycle lane is coned off. There is no advance warning of either of these situations, especially for cyclist & vehicles turning left from Manchester St (especially with the temporary corrugated iron wall blocking the view onto Armagh St and the end of the 30kph temporary speed limit just prior to the Armagh St intersection). There are also half a dozen unsealed holes in the asphalt from previous works which could be hazardous to cyclists, either if they hit them or have to swerve suddenly to avoid them.
  • “Cyclist Merging” sign but no works affecting cycle lane (x2)
    On SH74 Dyers road there is an “Extreme Care Cyclists Merging” sign approaching Linwood Ave southbound, and has been for over a week. However, the cycle lane is not affected by any works, as cones have been moved to the kerb and the two “Keep Right” signs have been (presumably) moved off the road to the grass verge (unless it is considered necessary to remind drivers & cyclists to keep off the grass!). There is a slight bend in Dyers Rd after the “Cyclists Merging” sign, so drivers (& cyclists) can’t see that the cycle lane is not closed until they get to the bend. The same situation occurs on the Linwood Ave westbound approach to Dyers Rd, with another “Extreme Care Cyclists Merging” sign but the cycle lane is (mostly) unobstructed, with cones (mostly) pulled clear of the cycle lane. Why hasn’t the temporary traffic management contractor taken down the “Cyclists Merging” signs after they’d re-opened the cycle lanes by moving the cones clear? Leaving signs that are no longer relevant up will just cause drivers (& cyclists) to stop paying attention to these types of signs in future.
  • Footpath blocked by roadworks sign (x2)
    Footpath on Maffeys Rd (just above intersection with McCormacks Bay Rd) blocked in two places by roadworks signs. There is no footpath on the other side of the road, so pedestrians are forced onto the road to get around these signs (and the first sign is located just after the 180 degree bend leading to the bottom section of Maffeys Rd, so visibility to pedestrians on the road is limited). The road looks wide enough to put both signs on the road itself (although the 30 kph sign could be moved up the hill a bit and onto the end of the dirt section next to the footpath, putting it on the road would narrow the width and make drivers more likely to comply with the temporary speed limit). Alternatively, the “Roadworks” sign could be moved a couple of meters down the road onto the dirt area between footpath & retaining wall (or replaced with a taller Level 2 sign and put behind the barrier).
  • Cycle lane blocked by roadworks sign (x2)
    Temporary speed limit sign blocking cycle lane on Centaurus Rd northbound just past Kowhai Tce. Why not put it out of the cycle lane on the grass verge in front of the driveway (with yellow lines along the cycle lane it can’t be hidden by parked cars)? A “Roadworks” sign is also blocking the cycle lane at the Centaurus Rd intersection with Palatine Tce (just at the end of the parking area for the shopping centre & right opposite a pedestrian island which narrows the road). Again there is space here for the sign to be placed out of the cycle lane and on the edge of the sealed carpark area.
  • Unnecessary temporary traffic management unsafe for cyclists
    Westbound cycle lane on Kilmore St between Fitzgerald Ave & Dawson St blocked by a “Keep Right” sign and cones. During the work day the cycle lane was coned off for about 20m for a City Care truck & other equipment – the cones alongside the truck have been moved clear of the cycle lane at the end of the work day, but the sign and cones around it have been left blocking the cycle lane. The approach to the worksite would also benefit from having an “Extreme Care Cyclists Merging” sign as there is currently no warning for approaching cyclists or drivers of the cycle lane closure (during the day when trucks are on site).
  • "Cyclist Merging” sign but no roadworks
    Fulton Hogan have left an “Extreme Care Cyclists Merging” sign on Moorhouse Ave westbound just after Selwyn St for over a week, but there are no works at all affecting the cycle lane (at least not till you get another 270m along Moorhouse Ave to Lincoln Rd), so no need for drivers to watch for merging cyclists. Given that Fulton Hogan are working on the kerbs at the Moorhouse Ave/Selwyn St intersection just before this sign (see FixMyStreet #5272) it may be more appropriate to have the “Cyclists Merging” sign before Selwyn St.
  • “Cyclist Merging” sign but no roadworks
    City Care have left an “Extreme Care Cyclists Merging” sign on Moorhouse Ave westbound just after Montreal St for over a week, but there are no works at all affecting the cycle lane (or any part of the road), so no need for drivers to watch for merging cyclists. Normally temporary traffic management providers are required to remove or cover signs when the activity ceases, so drivers and cyclists do not start ignoring them.
  • Unnecessary temporary traffic management unsafe for cyclists
    Coned taper on Rutherford St southbound approaching Barton St forces vehicles into cycle lane to get around a “Keep Left” sign located in the middle of the road. There is an “Extreme Care Cyclists Merging” sign on the approach to this but leaving the sign in the middle of the road appears unnecessary - all the other traffic management is moved after the overnight work to leave the cycle lane and traffic lane totally clear APART from this one sign. Why not take the sign down when work finishes for the night and move the cones back to the median (like has been done for the next couple of hundred meters through to Jubilee St)?
  • Footpath blocked by contractors truck & trailer
    Truck & trailer blocking footpath on Cannon Hill Cresc (below #14). With the truck right up against the vegetation on the side, pedestrians are forced onto the road to get past. At this point on Cannon Hill there is no footpath on other side of the road, so there is no safe way past truck. Truck is also parked just round blind bend, so drivers have very little time to react to pedestrians on the road.
  • Temporary traffic management unsafe for cyclists
    New roadworks on Gasson St northbound at Wordsworth St force cyclists from cycle lane into general traffic lane with no warning for cyclists or drivers. On approach, there are “Lane closed” signs on both sides of Gasson St showing that the left lane is closed. Surprisingly, there are no signs warning drivers that cyclists will be forced into lane 1 and then into lane 2 (all at the same time as drivers in lane 1 are trying to merge into lane 2 at 50kph).
  • Overgrown vegetation on Bridle Path Road
    The trees and vegetation along the fence line of Bridle Path Road near Ferrymead Terrace are becoming a tripping hazard and need cut back asap.
  • Cover missing from what I think is a water meter
    This has been uncovered for months and currently has a large rock over it to stop people walking into it. Located in front of 2 Cannon Hill Crescent just off Bridle Path Road.
  • Cars and tyres blocking footpath
    There are numerous cars, tyres and other rubbish blocking the footpath outside several businesses. Some of the cars are unregistered but are parked on the street
  • bower ave south

    On the footpath opposite 31 nancy avenue, there are some tree roots growing through the pavement which are getting troublesome and causing a trip hazard.
  • Graffati on electric Box
    There is graffiti on the big green electric box and the seal on the footpath is missing since last work was done.
  • Temporary traffic management very unsafe for cyclists
    Works associated with ultrafast broadband installation on Gasson St northbound at Wordsworth St force cyclists into general traffic lane with no warning for cyclists or drivers. Approaching site a “Lane closed” sign indicates that the left lane is closed, followed by a taper directing traffic from lane 1 into lane 2. As taper starts from line markings on edge of cycle lane, it is unclear if temporary cycle lane has been provided through site or if cyclists should move across to lane 2 with cars & trucks. If they stay in the cycle lane, they are confronted by cone bars blocking cycle lane and lane 1 on north side of intersection, forcing them unexpectedly into lane 2. If they try to get into lane 2 prior to the taper, drivers have not been warned to expect “Merging Cyclists”, and cyclists have to merge into lane 1 and then into lane 2. Traffic Management Plan for this worksite (TMP #27781 on http://www.transportforchristchurch.govt.nz/map/) refers to impacts as only “Vehicle Lane(s) Closed”, with no reference at all to impacts on cyclists. It is disappointing that the STMS setting up this site apparently thought that the TMP was appropriate to the worksite, even though the site has a marked cycle lane which the works are blocking (see first point in Section A5.8.3 “STMS’s general responsibilities on level LV, 1, 2 and 3 roads” from the Code of Practice for Temporary Traffic Management). It is also disappointing that there does not appear to be “adequate monitoring and auditing off all traffic management” by the appropriate Road Controlling Authority to prevent this type of (apparently) non-compliant site operating on its roads (see A5.5.1 “Traffic Management Coordinator’s responsibilities”).
  • Cycle lane blocked by roadworks sign
    Westbound cycle lane on Pages Rd (just west of Ottawa Rd) totally blocked by “Road works” sign. Why not place sign clear of cycle lane (and footpath) on grassed area to left of footpath? This would still be clearly visible to approaching road users without endangering anyone. It is disappointing that the “Best Practice for Cyclists” Guide (http://tmpforchch.co.nz/downloads/cycle-booklet-finall-small/) does not appear to have been followed when placing this sign, despite the requirement to do so in the CTOC Local Operating Procedures (Chapter 19, http://tmpforchch.co.nz/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/CTOC-LOP_v4_FINAL_20140919.pdf). It is also disappointing that there does not appear to be “adequate monitoring and auditing off all traffic management” by CTOC to prevent the practice of blocking cycle lanes with roadworks signs, which appears common throughout Christchurch.
  • signage for speeding
    this is a main thoroughfare for children being dropped off at Rangi and also at St Margarets , can you please put up signage with speed limits this street is a street that is constantly sped down and its becoming very dangerous. I see children daily nearly get run over by people carelessly driving , thank you
  • car blocks road when exiting Somme street onto St Albans street
    my daughter attends daycare on Somme st, the intersection at St Albans and Somme st is very busy at 5pm when I pick her up I can not see to the right of me when turning down st Albans towards Merivale mall, it is near impossible and very dangerous, I have had a couple of close calls, please provide yellow lines or even better a traffic light stop as it is in a school area and cars drive very fast
  • Fence Broken
    A panel of the wire fence that ensures the safety of people using the underpass is broken, leaving it possible for a child or other to fall into the Heathcote River, possible resulting in injury as the fall is not small.
  • Access to Broken Run
    The access to Broken Run is not suitable for disabled, elderly, people with prams, or cycles. Unlike adjoining subdivisions which have sealed smooth access, to the Cycleway and Walkway alongside the Southern Motorway. The entrance/exits from Broken Run are either a walk across a drainage area and a slight rise which is often wet and slippery after rain, followed by a step down to the sealed pathway if at the Southern end, or negotiating a bark covered often slippery and muddy and sometimes overgrown mound through a fence-space from the Eastern end of Broken Run subdivision. This lack of access is not good enough given the number of families with children, and older-age and less mobile residents in this area, and is not consistent with nearby subdivisions which have even and sealed pathways. please remedy this situation before someone slips and injures themselves.
  • Sign base without sign left on road - hazard to cyclists
    Sign base (with stand & temporary speed limit sign removed and placed on top of base) has been left at end of the work day on side of Gamblins Rd leaving Wilsons Rd. Sign base could be very hard to see, especially at night or late in the evening when cycling towards the rising sun. Single cone doesn’t clearly indicate what side it should be passed on. Sign base is right next to a section of grass verge between parking bays where it could have been safely and easily stored overnight.
  • Sign base without sign left on road - hazard to cyclists
    Sign base (with stand & sign removed and placed next to it on grass verge) has been left at end of the work day on side of Gamblins Rd approaching Wilsons Rd. Sign base could be very hard to see, especially at night or first thing in the morning when cycling towards the rising sun. Single cone doesn’t clearly indicate what side it should be passed on. Sign base is right next to a section of grass verge between parking bays, so could have been placed there without affecting its’ visibility and without presenting a hazard to cyclists (just like the “Road Works on Side Road” sign seen in the background of the photo!).
  • Footpath obstructed
    Footpath obstructed by pile of gravel being used for footpath & driveway reconstruction outside 75A St Martins Rd. Why not use the area of bare dirt next to the driveway to store the gravel, as that will unblock the footpath, still be easily accessible and can’t kill the lawn as there is no grass there?
  • Cycle lane & footpath blocked
    Scaffolding truck outside 146 Papanui Rd blocking southbound cycle lane, with no warning for approaching cyclists or drivers. Two cones placed on edge of cycle lane immediately next to truck is extent of temporary traffic management for cyclists. Footpath blocked by cone bars stretching full width, with no directional signage or alternative footpath provided.
  • Cycle lane blocked - no advance warning
    Westbound cycle lane on Ferry Rd leaving Rutherford St intersection is two thirds blocked by a trenchless drilling machine being used for installation of ultrafast broadband. There is no advance warning of the cycle lane closure, especially for cyclist & vehicles turning left from Rutherford St (contractor has taken down “Extreme Care Cyclists Merging” signs on both the Rutherford St & Ferry Rd eastern approaches, and left them sitting next to their empty sign stands (which at least are not located in the cycle lanes!)).
  • Sign base without sign blocking cycle lane (x2)
    Two sign bases with stands (but no signs) blocking westbound cycle lane on Pages Rd (outside 144 & 160 Pages Rd). No sign of the actual signs, so would appear that temporary traffic management provider has taken the signs away when they were no longer required but for some reason has left the bases, stands and sandbags. For both sign stands, there is an open grass area on far side of footpath, which has good sightlines for approaching traffic – why not place signs there away from the cycle lane? It would also be more consistent with the requirements of C3.3.2 (Positioning of signs) in the Code of Practice for Temporary Traffic Management, and in particular “sign bases must not be left in place, without signs attached, in a manner that will be a hazard to any road user, including pedestrians and cyclists”.
  • Cycle Lane Obstruction as Yellow Lines Missing
    On the cycle lane heading west from Victoria Square on Armagh Street opposite the Courts, there is a small stretch of this lane that was kept clear of parked cars by yellow dotted lines. Since a seal repair has taken place there are no lines, and cars are parking in the cycle lane causing cyclists to dangerously move into the path of traffic over the Armagh Bridge. Easily fixed.
  • Rubble in cycle lane
    Some rubble, presumably fallen from a truck, is in the cycle lane on Kilmarnock Street (Riccarton Road side of road), on both sides of the railway crossing
  • Temporary traffic management unsafe for cyclists
    Vehicles heading eastwards on SH74A Rutherford St are forced into the eastbound cycle lane from Jubilee St all the way through to Lane St. An “Extreme Car Cyclists Merging” sign has been placed at the point where cars & trucks are first forced into the cycle lane, but there is no reduction in the speed limit of 50kph. With cars & trucks using the cycle lane for over 300m, it is a long way to have impatient drivers follow cyclists safely.
  • Temporary traffic management unsafe for cyclists
    Contractors working on the Tuam St one-way conversion force cars and trucks into the cycle lane between Durham St & Colombo St. There is no warning of this for cyclists or drivers approaching (especially turning the corner out of Durham St), and there is no reduction in the permanent speed limit of 50kph.
  • Cycle lane blocked unnecessarily
    Westbound cycle lane outside Art Gallery on Gloucester St has been fenced off with no warning for cyclists or drivers. The section of cycle lane (and footpath) closest to Montreal St is being used to provide car parking for contractor vehicles, all the way up to the traffic lights. This forces cyclists into the traffic lane as they approach and head off from the lights, which is never fun.
  • Footpath, cycle lane & traffic lane blocked by concrete pour, no TTM
    Footpath, northbound cycle lane and northbound traffic lane on Victoria St opposite Casino blocked by truck doing concrete pour. Road users forced to use flush median to get past, and there is no warning of changed conditions for pedestrians, cyclists or drivers. Total extent of temporary traffic management on site appears to be 4 cones placed around front of truck.
  • Temporary traffic management unsafe for pedestrians
    Footpath on western side of Victoria St has been diverted onto carriageway around building site at top end of Victoria St near Bealey Ave. Pedestrians are “protected” from cars, buses & trucks only by cones, rather than the traffic side being delineated by barriers or safety fences. There is also no lateral safety zone provided between the diverted footpath and the traffic.
  • Cycle lane closed unnecessarily
    Southbound cycle lane outside new Duncan Cotterill & adjacent building at top end of Victoria St coned off for about 80m. Although there is an “Extreme Care Cyclists Merging” sign where the cycle lane is coned off (sign moved from cycle lane due to FixMyStreet 4125), it is just round the corner from Bealey Ave so visibility is not great, and the speed limit remains at 50kph. With cycle lane & shoulder closed on other side of road for more building work, cyclists are forced into a very narrow and busy pinchpoint. The closure seems to be to allow for a temporary footpath to be diverted onto the road whilst the permanent footpath is resealed. So why can’t the cones be moved back to the edge of the parking shoulder, which would still provide enough room for pedestrians and allow cyclists to remain in the cycle lane rather than being forced out amongst the cars & trucks (note that the fenced area at the southern end of site blocking the shoulder is only being used to store a couple of 44 gallon drums, which could easily be moved back to the footpath – which has been resealed at this point!).
  • Temporary traffic management unsafe for pedestrians
    Footpath on eastern side of Victoria St has been diverted onto carriageway outside new Duncan Cotterill & adjacent building near Bealey Ave. Pedestrians are “protected” from cars & trucks only by cones, rather than the traffic side being delineated by barriers or safety fences. There is also no lateral safety zone provided between the diverted footpath and the traffic.
  • Unsafe temporary traffic management blocking cycle lane
    Westbound cycle lane on Armagh St outside RSA building blocked by concrete truck and pump truck doing concrete pour, with no warning for cyclists or drivers. With no notice of cycle lane closure or taper, if cyclists decide to remain in cycle lane they will smack into stabiliser leg on pump truck (or swerve wildly out into passing traffic).
  • Blocked footpath unsafe for pedestrians
    Footpath on Armagh St & Colombo St outside Forsyth Barr building fenced off, forcing pedestrians out into a traffic lane to get past it. No signs or any warning that footpath is closed (on either Armagh St or Colombo St). Whilst this level of (non) temporary traffic management may have been acceptable whilst this was still within the central city cordon, it does seem to be a bit inadequate now.
  • Unsafe& unnecessary temporary traffic management
    Approaching the Tuam St intersection with Manchester St from the south, the left hand lane has been closed off with temporary bollards to stop vehicles turning left into Tuam St. Unfortunately this left lane develops from the northbound cycle lane, forcing cyclists into the narrow through lane. Given that there is a cycle lane on the northern side of the intersection, why are cyclists forced into a lane with cars and trucks solely to get past this temporary traffic management? Why not move the bollards 1.5m to the left of the lane marking, thereby continuing the cycle lane through the intersection whilst still effectively stopping vehicles from turning left?
  • Cycle lane blocked by mVMS trailer
    Eastbound cycle lane on Main Rd entering Sumner is blocked by a mVMS trailer notifying an upcoming closure of Clifton Tce (with no warning for cyclists or drivers). The trailer isn’t even parked hard up against the temporary fence to the left of the cycle lane & shoulder, so it would appear that very little effort has been made not to impede the cycle lane (it should even have been possible to shift the fence to the left a bit to make more space if required, as the adjacent pathway at this point is very wide).
  • Temporary traffic management unsafe for pedestrians
    Pedestrian access along Main Rd across Augusta St is affected by work on the footpath outside the New World supermarket in Redcliffs. Pedestrians are directed onto the road and around the outside of a cone bar barrier to regain the footpath or reach the pedestrian crossing across Main Rd. Despite the footpath being diverted into the carriageway around this corner, the traffic side of the (diverted) footpath is not delineated by barriers or safety fences, leaving pedestrians totally unprotected from vehicles turning into Augusta Rd.
  • Cycle lane blocked unnecessarily
    Westbound cycle lane on Ferry Rd approaching Maronan St (Woolston) has been coned off for installation of ultrafast broadband. With no work being done on a Sunday afternoon, and no holes in the cycle lane or shoulder, and the cycle lane totally unobstructed (except for the cones), why is the cycle lane closed? (During the day on Friday the cycle lane all the way from the Rutherford St intersection to here was coned off, but most of the cones have been cleared from the cycle lane and stored on the grass strip between shoulder & footpath – why not these ones at the end of this section of cycle lane? Also, the 2 TMP’s in this area for this work (#26575 & 26580 on www.transportforchristchurch.govt.nz/map/) only refer to impacts as “Pedestrians Affected, Shoulder Closure” with no mention of cyclists being affected (by something like, say, closing the cycle lane).
  • Cyclists lights not working
    Side street(unlabelled)on Shands road between Halswell Junction Rd and Sir James Wattie Dve. Shows red bike but button NOT WORKING Pedestrian button works. Thanks
  • Overgrown roundabout obstructing view
    On approaching roundabout from any side it is impossible to see across it as the flax obstructs all views. I nearly ran over two children pedestrians as a result of this!! One was bent over helping a small child on a bike to cross the road, at appropriate crossing location, but they could not be seen.
  • Cycle lane blocked?
    Cones placed along northbound cycle lane on Rutherford St between Woolston Cemetery & Barton St, likely associated with construction work at the Crocs outlet shop. No indication for cyclists whether safe to stay in cycle lane, as most cones in cycle lanes are next to blown over signs or sign bases with their signs removed (see FixMyStreet 5270, 5271, 5275, 5279, 5280, 5281 & 5282 for recent examples).
  • Roadworks unsafe for pedestrians
    Kerb is being changed on south west corner of Moorhouse Ave & Selwyn St. Fenced walkway has been set up through works for pedestrians crossing Moorhouse Ave, but pedestrian call button (for the green man) is on old traffic light pole, which can’t be reached from the walkway. Would suggest contractor install pedestrian call button on new pole first or move the fences so pedestrians can reach the call button (whilst stopping people from falling into the holes next to the old pole).
  • Cycle lane blocked by roadworks sign
    Roadworks sign blocking northbound cycle lane on Gasson St between Coleridge St & Wordsworth St. Between this sign and another for southbound traffic (located between Kingsley St & Wordsworth St), there doesn’t appear to be any activity underway that varies the normal condition of the road, so I don’t understand why it is even out there endangering cyclists. Even if it should be there, why not place sign on the wide footpath, which would still be visible to drivers, allow cyclists to pass by in the cycle lane and leave enough room for pedestrians to pass safely?
  • Pothole getting deeper and wider
    Hole in centre of road. Been previously patched and near manhole. New to area but maybe suggests water runoff issues under road.
  • Unnecessary signs and lane drop
    There is a lane drop but I have never seem anything there to justify it since the one way was put in. Why is this lane drop still there?
  • Cycle lane blocked
    Two concrete trucks blocking eastbound cycle lane on Armagh St between Cranmer Square & Durham St. Looked like trucks were waiting to do a concrete pour, but unclear why they are waiting in the cycle lane (and without any warning for cyclists or drivers). An “Extreme Care Cyclists Merging” sign (associated with diverted footpath further down Armagh St) is hidden behind the nearest truck (which is parked in the cycle lanes and on yellow lines). Would suggest that traffic management plan be reviewed to assess why the waiting/staging space used by concrete trucks arriving for the pour involves blocking the cycle lane, and hiding the warning sign for the diverted footpath further down Armagh St.
  • Cycle lane blocked
    Scaffolding truck outside 146 Papanui Rd blocking southbound cycle lane, with no warning for cyclists or drivers (second scaffolding truck parked up driveway to 146 Papanui Rd, so unlikely this was just a “quick stop”). Cones placed along edge of cycle lane with truck parked so as to block cycle lane as it moves back towards the footpath. Would suggest that traffic management plan be reviewed to assess whether adequate provision has been made for cyclists.
  • Cycle lane blocked off
    Contractors working on driveway at 154 Papanui Rd have put cones down southbound cycle lane next to two of their work vehicles. Not clear whether cyclists should remain in cycle lane (and possibly travel through the working space &/or safety zone) or mix it up with the cars. No warning for cyclists or drivers. Would suggest that traffic management plan be reviewed to assess whether adequate provision has been made for cyclists.
  • Cycle lane obstructed by roadworks sign
    Roadworks sign (“On Side Road”) placed in cycle lane on Rossall St opposite Leinster Rd, leaving insufficient space for cyclists to get past whilst staying within cycle lane. Made worse by having cars travelling very close to edge of cycle lane, as this is the natural line through the apex of the bend. Why not put sign entirely on footpath, as footpath width would be no narrower than width at bus stop (seen behind sign)?
  • Cycle lane blocked
    Cycle lane coned off, leaving insufficient width for cyclists to safely use it. No warning for cyclists or drivers that cycle lane blocked. Is at site of retaining wall repairs on Centaurus Rd (reported as Issue 5268 “Footpath blocked”) and is likely to have been used as a parking space for tipper truck whilst excavating for the retaining wall (although why cycle lane is still coned off when no workers are around at the end of the day is a mystery).
  • Cycle lane blocked
    Cycle lane heading east on Moorhouse Ave blocked by mesh fence, forcing cyclists into traffic lane, with no warning for cyclists or drivers (up until the end of January at least an “Extreme Care Cyclists Merging” sign was in place west of Antigua St, but this was initially taken down & stored on the footpath, and has since been removed entirely). Fenced area used to contain a SCIRT pump, but that was removed pre-Christmas, so now there are only some plastic pipes going nowhere creating this blockage of the cycle lane. Why not realign them parallel to road and out of cycle lane, as that would clear cycle lane for cyclists to use?
  • Cycle lane blocked
    City-bound cycle lane on Hagley Ave blocked by mesh fence, with no warning for cyclists or drivers (up until Christmas at least an “Extreme Care Cyclists Merging” sign was in place on Hagley Ave at Selwyn St, but this is now sitting unused next to the footpath within Hagley Park).
  • Footpath blocked
    Footpath on St Asaph St outside Ace Video building is fenced off, forcing pedestrians onto the road to get past it. Since parking not banned next to fence, pedestrians required to walk around the outside of parked cars immediately next to one of the traffic lanes. No signs or any warning that footpath is closed (at either end).
  • Cycle lane blocked by roadworks sign
    Roadworks sign blocking cycle lane (why not place it in the parking shoulder 4m from where currently placed?).
  • Unsafe roadworks
    On Waltham Rd, cycle lane and inside lane closed off with cones, forcing cyclists into remaining lane up the overbridge, with no warning for cyclists or drivers (and 50kph limit still in force so cyclists labouring up the incline will really annoy drivers behind them)
  • Rubbish carelessly dumped
    Yesterday someone carelessly dumped some large rubbish on the berm of our property - including the front facade of a vehicle. The rubbish is too large for us to dispose of ourselves.
  • Cycle lane blocked by roadworks sign
    Cycle lane on Main Rd entirely blocked by temporary speed limit sign (why not place it on other side of low wall where sign would still be visible above wall from both directions?)
  • Unused roadworks sign "stored" in cycle lane
    Sign dismantled and “stored” in cycle lane (although I can’t see why it couldn’t be stored on the grass on the far side of the footpath?). Note the careful placement of the cone on top of sign, so provided it doesn’t get knocked or blown over cyclists should have some warning of the hazard on the cycle lane.
  • Cycle lane blocked by roadworks sign
    Speed limit sign blocking most of cycle lane, next to wide grass verge (and at the end of a traffic island which limits how much space cars & trucks can give cyclists forced to swerve out of the cycle lane). Sign looks to have blown over to lie flat on cycle lane (probably not helped by the total lack of sandbags to anchor the sign).
  • Cycle lane blocked by roadworks sign
    Speed limit sign blocking most of cycle lane, next to wide grass verge (and right opposite a traffic island which limits how much space cars & trucks can give cyclists forced to swerve out of the cycle lane). Sign looks to have blown over to lie flat on cycle lane (probably not helped by the total lack of sandbags to anchor the sign).
  • Sign base without sign blocking cycle lane
    Sign base with stand (but no sign) blocking cycle lane on Linwood Ave. Cones which had blocked off cycle lane last week have been moved to the kerb, but base and stand which had held “keep right” sign left in middle of cycle lane (with the arrow sign placed carefully on the grass next to the tree).
  • Unsafe roadworks
    Footpath & kerb at Manchester/Lichfield corner have been dug up, with mesh fence around diggings totally blocking cycle lane (and no warning for cyclists or drivers and the mesh fence is hard to see). Pedestrians are also expected to cross Manchester, High, Lichfield and Manchester again to get past, but most people seem to simply walk on the road to get past.
  • Unsafe roadworks
    Right lane on Manchester St entirely coned off to stop cars turning into Worcester St, forcing cars across cycle lane with no warning for cyclists or drivers (why does entire right lane need to be closed? – further up Manchester St at Cashel St there is a banned right turn and the sign is placed next to the centre of the road, which doesn’t require the entire lane to be blocked)
  • Cycle lane blocked by roadworks sign
    Cycle lane entirely blocked by “No Turn” sign (though it is hard to tell it is a cycle lane as the cycle symbol is obscured by the sandbags holding up the sign)
  • Sign base without sign blocking cycle lane
    Sign base blocking cycle lane, with sign & stand removed from base & carefully placed on top of base in cycle lane.
  • Cycle lane blocked by roadworks sign
    “Turn Left With Care” sign blocking cycle lane (which is also dug up).
  • Cycle lane blocked
    Cycle lane to Lincoln Rd blocked by plastic barriers with no warning for cyclists or drivers (although there is a small sign directing cyclists onto Grove Rd, where there is no further directional signage, so presumably cyclists are meant to dismount and walk along the dug up footpath or through Espresso Carwash back onto Lincoln Rd)
  • Unsafe roadworks
    Half of cycle lane (along with shoulder) dug up but no warning for cyclists or drivers when approaching.
  • Sign base without sign encroaching halfway across cycle lane
    Sign base encroaching half way across cycle lane, with speed limit sign removed from base & carefully placed flat on ground in cycle lane. And why not place sign entirely within parking bay rather than having it encroach on the cycle lane?
  • Sign base without sign left in cycle lane1 update
    Sign base in cycle lane, with speed limit sign removed from base & carefully placed flat on ground in cycle lane (with cone knocked over, likely to be hard to spot, especially if coming round the corner from Gamblins Rd)
  • Cycle lane blocked by roadworks sign
    Sign warning of “No Road Markings” totally blocking cycle lane (why not put it clear of the cycle lane in one of parking bays?)
  • Footpath blocked
    Footpath blocked by retaining wall repairs, forcing walkers into parking bay (until somebody parks there, forcing walkers onto cycle lane/road)
  • Unnecessary roadworks sign obstructing footpath
    Arrow sign encroaching on footpath (not even sure why it is necessary to direct cars to keep right of kerb and footpath?)
  • Detour sign blocking cycle lane
    Detour sign blocking cycle lane next to wide grass verge.
  • Ridiculous potholes
    Over the last month I have watched as a number of potholes have grown along Main road and nothing has been done. These potholes are a huge hazard to cyclists as they are right where cyclists ride. One, just before the pub when coming from Teddington, is about a metre in width now and completely covers where cyclist would ride, I had to swerve into the middle of the lane to avoid it. I can't believe that no council staff member has driven over these potholes. Why, oh why, is there not a reporting responsibility on all council staff to log these developing hazards even if they are not in roading. Please fix before someone is injured or killed.

  • Parking over Driveway
    Car (grey Ford Territory) illegally parked across driveway this morning 8.12am on 26th Feb 2015. This is a common occurrence usually happening at weekends but today is the first weekday incident for a while. Is difficult enough to exit driveway onto Papanui Road with bus stop and 1 parking space to the right of the driveway. Often people illegally park to get coffee at Café Metro on the corner at Merivale Lane. I was forced to make a difficult turn out of the driveway along footpath and to avoid bus shelter to get onto road. Would help if the single parking space beside the bus stop was removed as having parked car and a bus arrive at stop completely obscures visibility and as I have a young family it really is a safety issue.

  • Unused red zone cables wrapped around power pole
    Cables from the demolished red zone properties on the other side of the street are wrapped around the power pole outside our property. They are a danger and a nuisance.

  • Cycle Lane repaving created sinkholes
    Starting at the s/w corner of Gasson and Wordsworth Streets and proceeding north through the intersection patch paving work has been done. In the process the contractor has left a number of serious sinkholes in the new pavement. The hole nearest the corner is the worst and a real hazard. If the contractor has signed off on this work as complete CCC should not employ him further as the work is extremely poor.

    Hello, Can the BMX track at Burwood Park please get some attention. It now has very long dry grass and weeds up to a meter high. When it looks nice it gets a lot of use but at the moment its bit of a wasteland. Also can the broken tree branches left over from the strong winds over the last few months please be removed. Thanks
  • Rubble Dumped on side of road
    Hello. There is a large pile of shingle on the side of the road, next the the park at the Kingsford Street end of Broomfield Terrace. This was left over from roadworks about a year ago and never removed. It seems it has now become a dumping ground for other peoples rubble and rubbish. Can this please be removed and cleaned up before it gets any worse. Thanks
  • Hole appeared today in the middle of the footpath outside 58 Dryden Street.
    The hole appeared mid afternoon , is getting bigger. We have placed a brick in the hole to stop people tripping in it. We are next door to Edith Cavell nursing home so there are a lot of elderly people who use this footpath.
  • sewage pipes under road causing house to move1 update
    Some time ago; the sewage/storm water pipes were repaired between our house and the road (254 grimseys) since then, every time a bus picks up speed and goes over this part of the road, it shakes our house considerably and it appears to be getting worse.
  • Leaking water pipe
    There is always water in the gutter at my driveway (18A Wayside Ave, Burnside, Christchurch) and further along the street, even when it hasn't rained for a long time. This has been the case for the 18 months I've lived at the address.
  • ABANDONED VAN
    A Blue Toyota Van Rego no EGU 247 signwriten Campbellabnos has been parked in front of 73 Kingsley Street for a month. As parking is at a premium in this location can it be checked out please.
  • Sliver Car abandoned
    A Silver car licence no APW608 has been parked outside 67 Gladson Ave for the last couple of months. no rego, no WOF and 4 flat tyres.
  • Grass on other side of the foot path over growen
    The people in the house on the corner of Stourbridge and Mountfort st have not mowing their lawns for a number of months. As a result the lawn by the foot path is full of rubbish, dog poo and very long. It really is not acceptable and needs rectifying ASAP.
  • Abandoned car since Show weekend
    Ford Telstra - Registration SM6094 has been parked outside property at 10 St Peters Close since Show weekend. Registration expired, tyres are bald. Police notified.
  • Car has been sitting for a month
    A Toyota Corona, Reg MM3871, has been abandoned and sitting at this location, cnr Waterloo & Kirk Rd, for over a month.
  • Stop sign turning in wind
    Sign spins around to face out into Broken Run which I think could cause confusion
  • roundabout overgrown - restricted vision
    Flax bushes have grown to a size that they obstruct vision through and beyond the roundabout. I had near incidence when travelled round roundabout to find young person bent over whilst helping child cycle across road, they were notvisible until I was half way around the roundabout.
  • Antigue Street and St Asaph Street
    With all the road changes happening around Hagley Ave and Hospital Corner more traffic is now having to use Antigue St to get to Moorhouse Ave. The above set of lights allows for little traffic to flow through this intersection. As this is a permanent arrangement the lights need to stay green longer to allow traffic to go through. Contributing to this congested area is the CDHB staff carpark. Cars waiting for the lights are blocking the access to this car park and leave cars sitting in the middle of the road having to wait for the lights to turn green and all the traffic to pass before accessing the carpark. The cars can go back to St Asaph Street causing traffic coming from St Asaph Street to maneouvre between traffic in the middle of the road and cars parked on the side of the road. It has become a very unpleasant and dangerous journey through this block.
  • Street light out
    Street light not working outside house number 130 fisher ave. Has been out for about 6 weeks.
  • Footpath blocked by overgrown hedge
    The hedge at number 10 Churchill Street is very overgrown and makes walking on the footpath very difficult.
  • Street Lights not working
    The street lights in Macann Lane, Hammond St and adjacent section of Barrington St are not working. I noticed this about 1am, 28/11.
  • Need for no-parking road markings
    We frequently have cars parking across the heavily used ramp from the Tekapo Place cul-de-sac onto the bike path along the Heathcote River. We need a "No parking" sign and yellow lines to remind drivers that the area is an important thoroughfare and should not be blocked by parked vehicles.
  • Deep pot holes
    There are a number of deep pot holes covering the width of the west-bound half of Beckford Road
  • Foot path raised and broken - fall hazard
    Footpath is very raised and broken outside 120 edward ave - opposite side of the road was fixed but they didn't fix this side - has been like this since February earthquake
  • Traffic light sequence changed
    The traffic lights on Falsgrave St/Moorhouse Ave intersection have been changed to go green only every second sequence. This is causing traffic to be backed up down Falsgrave St, especially at peak times. This makes it difficult for people to get their cars out of businesses driveways on this street
  • People parking outside our office blocking entry and exit
    Hi, Despite increased traffic enforcement management we still have people blocking the access to our office. The road needs to be marked with "no parking" or some such other to prevent this if possible!
  • Order off road
    A car outside number 6 has been ordered off the road by Police over 2 weeks ago. Recently the number plates have been removed, but the car now appears to have been abandoned.
  • Green Holden Vectra Rego WO17511 update
    Hi There...Green Holden Vectra Rego WO1751 has been sitting in our street for 3 weeks. It does not belong to anyone within close proximity. It is registered. It has old clothing and is very messy inside. Would appreciate if it was removed...thank you.
  • Car blocking cycle lane
    A Chevrolet is parked in the cycle lane with a for sale sign in the window. It has been there for almost a week in the same place. It would be great if it could be moved as when cycling, you have to come to a complete stop to get around it if there is traffic around. Thanks :-)
  • Broken down vehicle obstructing lane
    Vehicle has been left where it is for a few days. Blocking over half cycle lane - did not make it as far as the kerb. GZG287 021770791
  • missing utility cover
    Just north of 220 Colombo there is a square hole with no cover in the bus/cycle lane. I reported this about 2 months ago and it has yet to be addressed. If it is just too much effort you can send me the dimensions of the hole and I will cut an appropriate piece of wood to fit into this wheel bending possible crash inducing hazard.
  • Freedom Camping
    Man in a hiace van, red, no rego plates, parked-up at the far end of the developing Kirkwood Subdivision, in the trees by the Heathcote River. No toilet facilities.
  • Broken Fence
    The fence that separates the cycle and walking path from the Heathcote River under the Motorway Underpass has a section broken. This needs to be secured as it is unsafe as children could fall through into the river (when it is flowing).
  • Abandoned car
    Abandoned Honda prelude been parked outside my house for days now no sign of driver - car is alarmed and not reported stolen not a local car - taking up residents car park
  • Grass is over grown
    The grass is now very long and overgrown in this public space. This has not been mown for over a month.
  • Timing problem
    Traffic backed up on Idris back to Wairakei Road each morning. Traffic lights at Fendalton Road provide insufficient time for traffic on Idris Road. There is no back-up of traffic on Fendalton Rd. Seems the new Idris Rd lights in place of round about are a waste of time unless more time is provided at Fendalton crossing.
  • Car parked in no parking zone
    Car is parked permanently in no parking zone. From the look of it the car is unregistered.
  • Potholes in cycle lane
    Hi there. Over the recent months some large potholes have opened up on both sides of the road in the Cycle Lanes, along the length of the road. This make cycling extra hazardous and should be fixed ASAP.
  • People parking outside our office blocking entry and exit
    Hi, Outside 171 and 169 Victoria St there are two bays that appear to be car parks but are actually openings for both offices for car entry and exit.
  • Potholes on Montgomerys Rd1 update
    There has been an on going issue with potholes in the seal just before the bridge on Montgomerys road. People are swerving to miss them.
  • new cycleway crossing not detecting westbound
    I have used the new signalised crossing at Deans Avenue (where the old overbridge used to be to Blenheim Rd. It has been fine heading eastbound (towards Hagley) but heading westbound (towards Riccarton) I have had trouble several times getting it to detect me either through the in ground sensors or through pressing the button. Can this be looked into please
  • 2 Large Road Plates Left By Bus Stop
    2 large steel road plates have left by the bus stop outside 284 Memorial Av. These were used to bridge trenching and maintain access into driveways. Please could the road plates be removed
  • Roadside Grass Needs Mowing
    The area of roadside between Aidanfield Drive and Broken Run is in an appalling state, grass long, bushes hanging over the footpath. In the interests of promoting safety for walkers, please do some gardening and mowing in this area.
  • Parked car blocking footpath
    There is a car parked in a way that it blocks the footpath, right next to a bend in Springs Rd, forcing pedestrians to step into the busy road to get past. This has been going on for weeks now.
  • Mini earthquakes when the buses speed through
    Hi. Another bus just flew past our house at the Wakefield Avenue end of Duncan Street. They come through here at 60kph. I am so sick of this. The road has recently been 'fixed' with a couple of tarmac patches. It's made no difference to the house shaking from the speeding buses. I guess the problem won't be dealt with properly any time soon. They need to be diverted away from the back streets, or slowed right down. I am angry, and feel like using a brick to get the point across. Don't take this personally.
  • Unfinished footpath
    There is a gap where the footpath has yet to be sealed, about 150mm wide. It has been like this for a while and is getting deeper over time. It's very rough on bikes and could be a tripping hazard at night.
  • Water leak
    Water leak in foot path near 220 Centarus road
  • pothole
    A large pothole on the footpath. Cars park in the area for access to Paparoa st School.
  • Stop sign on Colombo/ Ashgrove Tce corner down
    Someone pulled out the stop sign on the NW corner of Ashgrove Tce and Colombo St. They pulled it out neatly so I was able to put it back in the hole, but it's now a bit loose. The sign was also bent, probably when it fell. So it's standing again, but not so strongly.
  • Broken glass has been covering footpath at least a month now
    There is a large amount of smashed glass on the footpath that has been there for at least a month (how often are the footpaths supposed to be cleaned??!?!)
  • street light
    One of the street lights on boon st near 28 hasn't been working for a few weeks now
  • Underpass danger
    The cycle way underpass near Hayton rd is constantly littered with debris from passing vehicles on the motorway overhead. This presents a hazard to cyclists and pedestrians from being hit by flying debris and of more concern is cyclists turning under the underpass. The debris sitting on the concrete represents a significant skidding hazard in a position where cyclists are braking and turning. I suggest a mesh barrier along the Armco to keep the debris away
  • Leaking Fire Hydrant
    Hi, the fire hydrant outside 56 Franics Ave is leaking into the street
  • abandoned station wagon
    1994 dark green Subaru Legacy Reg DRD993, front rego plate sitting on drivers side dash board. Been opposite 5 Amoka Crescent for approx 4 - 5 months. Please get rid of it .... have seen suspicious looking people stopping to look at it.
  • Street light not working
    Following the high winds on 22 September, the street light outside 35 Maryhill Ave has stopped working. This needs repaired.
  • Noise problem
    Broken pedestrian crossing button on Lichfield/Oxford Tce means there is an almost continous, very loud crossing noise right next to the Greening the Rubble Pod Oasis seating by the ReStart mall. No-one sits there anymore :(
  • Temporary signs obstructing busy cycle path
    Two "Trucks crossing " signs have been placed in the cycle path, one on either side of Kilmarnock Road. The sign on the LHS leaving Straven Road is in a particularly dangerous location as it is by a pinch point in the road for cars leaving the intersection. Cyclists including many school children, are needing to swerve out into the car lane to pass the sign.
  • Sink hole in live lane
    There is a rapidly growing sink hole in the southbound live lane directly in front of 32 picton ave's driveway. If hit at speed particularly at night this could be dangerous. This is a new hole, not the previously fixed one 10m down the road.
  • Speeding vehicles and dangerous goods vehicles
    Many large trucks and other vehicles speed down this section of road. Road is narrow, has no centre marking, and is a river terrace unsuitable for this type and volume of traffic. Area also subject to car enthusiast by-law, so obvious problem area. Easy alternative high volume route available via Opawa Rd/Chapmans Rd. Suggested solution is narrowing and/or speed bumps along the river terrace part of this route, with signage posted at 3 points on Garlands Rd advising trucks to take alternate route. Private vehicles recently damaged by passing vehicles, including wing mirrors broken off, and near misses for pedestrians. Very high risk of fatality or serious injury if pedestrians hit due to size speed and volume of traffic.
  • Huge hole in middle of the road - Portchester Street
    HI there. there is a huge hole that has been in the middle of this roadway for some time and has steadily been getting worse over the weeks. this is a sink hole that has been repaired previously unsuccessfully. this will cause major damage to the underside of a car if it is hit. thank you Rita
  • Cars parking on footpath

  • Potholes and uneven surface2 update
    The intersection on the Hornby side is full of potholes and very uneven. It needs fixed as this is a busy intersection. With low cars it feels like you are on a 4x4 track.
  • Road hazard
    In the corner of Murdoch street and Brookside terrace, there's one van that always park so close to the corner bend of as attached photo. While there is no yellow lines on it, Murdoch street is such a narrow street that when this van is parked on the corner those vehicles going out towards Brookside terrace cannot see the oncoming vehicles coming from both sides, either those approaching cars from the left or the right. My family goes in and out of this street via Brookside terrace everyday and we see that this is a potential big problem if not fix or sorted as soon as possible. What we would like to suggest is to put yellow lines on both corners of Murdoch street corners so that vehicles such as this van cannot park there anymore. Please do not let an accident happen before this request is actioned. thank you Maria
  • Cars Parking Over Footpath
    On Saturday mornings there are cars parked over the pedestrian pathways and the grass verges, while able bodied people seem unable to get their children to sports games without almost parking on site in the field! Please address this inappropriate behaviour by motorists by ticketing them.
  • Tagging in Underpass
    There is tagging in the underpass between the Broken Run and Aidanfield Subdivisions, alongside the Heathcote River

  • Dangerous cycle path
    The cycle lane configuration in Ferrymead results in a dangerous vehicle/bicycle conflict. the intersection appears to have been designed to facilitate faster vehicle speeds, making the conflict more dangerous
  • missing utility cover
    South of Countdown on the east side near the retirement home there is a missing utility cover. Square, about 6CMs per side. Very hazardous at night, but even in the day it can catch you out on your bike.
  • Speeding buses shake the hell out of the house every 20 minutes
    Hello, would it be possible to fix the road again at the Wakefield Ave end of Duncan Street, last time they left an overlap in the tarmac. Now the road has subsided and the shaking is worse. Cars cause no problems, but when the buses hit the bumps and dips at speed it's like an aftershock. Every 20 minutes, both directions. I hate them. Please can someone fix the road? An even better solution would be to re route the damn buses away from the back streets or at least slow the things down to 25kph.
  • Natural alignment for cars to use cycle path
    In both directions, on both sides of the bridge, the natural path for vehicles is to use the cycle path (you can see the tyre marks clearly showing this occurring) making it unsafe for cyclists. Some kind of clearer demarkation (posts, raised bumps) may help drivers to be more observent of the cycle lane. I have a near miss almost daily on my commute (I have many of these on video)
  • Dangerous signage - Ron Guthrey Road, Christchurch
    Road: Intersection of Ron Guthrey Road and Avonhead Road, Christchurch Problem: 100km signage blocks the view of Give Way Sign and the two speed zones are confusing. If a driver was not aware of the impending Give Way, they might speed up and potentially race through the intersection. At night, this problem is very dangerous as there is limited lighting in the area to alert drivers to the impending intersection, drivers see the 100km sign and think it is Open Road, when in fact an intersection is less than 60 metres away. Solution: Simply remove the 100km signage. By removing the sign, the Give Way signage would no longer be obstructed from view. Drivers would no longer be confused by the two different speed zones. The same applies for both directions on Ron Guthrey Road (travelling North and South).
  • Large pot holes
    The cycleway along Marshland road, between 324 and 356 Marshland Road is underwater in wet weather and large potholes full of water are exposed in dry weather. In places the tar seal has broken away almost to the edge of the outer white lines for the main vehicular traffic leaving no room for cyclists. In wet weather I attempt to walk, pushing my bike along this stretch but in wet weather the water is ankle deep in parts extending from the edge of the broken tar seal right up to the fence.
  • Prior repair breaking up
    Repair to road has started to break down and a pothole is forming, just at start of bridge.
  • Large Pothole
    There is a large pothole outside driveway entrance where sewer works were done. This has been 'patched' a few times but never seems to last.
  • Big potholes remaining following road works1 update
    The intersection at High & Tuam has at least two large potholes that are impossible to avoid in traffic. They have been there since the road works were completed
  • Street light not working
    The street light has not gone for over one month and the foot path is uneven in the vicinity
  • Obstruction of footpath
    The gates at 58 Edward Avenue are frequently left open, in such a way that the asp halted public footpath is obstructed. The nuisance continues for hours on end. The issue has been a continuing one for several years, but I am now reporting it because of the dismissive attitude of the residents when iI tried to discuss it with them
  • Turning Arrows Desperately Needed
    Turning right into Brougham St from Burlington St at busy times is a looooong wait, up to 4 changes of the lights sometimes :( Turning Arrows would also alleviate the problem of having to crane your neck to spot straight through traffic hidden behind the turning traffic coming from Gasson St. Thanks :)
  • Hole in ashphalt on street
    Hi, There is a hole forming on the ashphalt on the street. Very similar to the last hole that formed here but a bit further away. It is right in front on a driveway and is getting quite big that someones wheel could get stuck in it if it gets bigger. will need to be fixed very soon. Thanks
  • Driver usage of cycle path
    Drivers regularly cut across the cycle lanes both eastbound and westbound on approached to the temporary bridge. The tyre tracks over the cycle lane green paint clearly show that drivers take a "natural" line, likely due to not slowing to 30kph, the posted speed limit. This puts cyclist's lives at risk. This would be a good case for either flexiposts or raised markers to demarkate the cycle lane.
  • street lights out

  • Very large pothole
    There is a large pothole on Bernard Street on the outer edge of the street when the road turns to the left. People have tried to stuff it with cardboard and rags, but as it is now winter it is deep enough to be dangerous when you can't see it when it is very dark (poor streetlighting around the area also),raining or icy.

  • Craters and flooding River Road Dallington
    there is a large dip just west of Banks Ave, which needs to be filled in. Currently it has several potholes in excess of 40cm which are causing damage to cars. Secondly a bund has been created in the last week, which now prevents water off the road, particularly near Medway St. This is creating further problems and will soon cause potholes as well. This road is now a major transit route since the closure of Gayhurst Rd Bridge

  • more street lights needed
    the street is way too dark at night because it has too little street lighting. I feel unsafe when walking home, even at earlier hours during winter as it gets dark quite quickly.
  • Turn light different program since roadworks
    Ever since the roadworks in the area, the right turn light (brougham going west to waltham going north) is often not functioning. I've witnessed some near misses here including one unbelievable save by a truckie to not squash a car. Please correct the light programming to avoid more incidents.
  • Cycle path is flooded even in dry weather
    The main cycle path across Hagley Park to the Armagh Street bridge continually floods - always in wet weather, and now in dry. The problem appears to be overflow from the lake beside the path, coupled with a path that is below lake level.
  • street light blown
    Only light in culdersac has blown is very dark
  • street cleaning
    whole street has build up of leaves and sediment in gutter
  • Lane arrows cause problems
    I commute via Halswell Junction Rd coming from Halswell and turning right into Springs Rd. It is sometimes difficult and dangerous to get from the left turning lane at the roundabout with the motorway into the right turning lane for the upcoming Springs Rd roundabout. Some vehicles ignore the existing right lane right-turn-only arrow at the motorway roundabout and go straight ahead. This lane is usually empty, encouraging drivers to take this option and, maybe they don't see the arrow until it is too late. A safer option would be to change the right-turn-only arrow into a right-or-straight-ahead arrow - thus avoiding the need for drivers like me to have to attempt to change lanes in a very short stretch of rod.
  • Intersection Controls
    Hi there I go down Antigua Street heading south everyday on my way to work (I park in Silvester Motor Co). I have witnessed many near misses at this intersection (car:car and many bike:car). I believe that this is due to the current layout of the intersection - there is a lane on the left which is for left turning drivers, but the centre lane is for both straight and right turning drivers. This layout is no longer as effective given the change in give way rules and actually means it has become quite dangerous. The increase in traffic at this intersection means that right turning traffic wait for a significant period of time before turning, meaning straight driving traffic are going around them. This means that traffic turning right into Moorhouse from the South direction have very poor visibility. Cyclists are left in the middle of both streams of traffic with no safe place to wait. I believe this intersection should be redesigned so that the left lane is for left turning and straight traffic with the centre lane for right turning traffic only. Thanks heaps. ps - happy to discuss this if required to elaborate!
  • Road sweeping
    The city care trucks use to come sweep the roads on weekly basis during autumn to get rid of the leaves that accumulate when the big oak trees on the sidewalk shed leaves. The leaves on the road caused some issues with impaired draining of the road during the above normal rains we had in the last couple of weeks. Why is the city care trucks so scarce on the sweeping of the roads? What's the roster on sweeping the roads, when is citycare going to come sweep the road? Please let me know...
  • Tidal flooding in Landy Street, Dallington
    Global settlement of street has resulted in the paved surface of the roadway being below the high-tide level of the Avon River at Kerrs Reach. This is resulting in regular flooding of the street, particularly at times of rainfall.

  • Bridge expansion seal exposed
    The rubber strip in the expansion joint of the bridge at the eastern end is raised a little in the middle. Not a big issue, but pushing it down again should be simple and most importantly save it from damage.
  • Vehicles parked on footpath and cycle lane
    Outside 117 - 123 Brougham St (just west of Collins St). Cars are regularly parked on the footpath and/or cycle path in this location. It is not always the same cars. This forces cyclists into a lane of fast moving motorists (fresh off the motorway) and creates a very scarry pinch-point. Could a yellow dashed line be painted here.
  • Minon hillside slipcovering part of Mt Pleasant Rd

  • Pavements and roading issues Donnington Street and Aberfoyle Place
    I live in Abefoyle Place and have done so for nearly three years. About two years ago gravel was put down on the paths in Aberfoyle Place and in Donnington Street round the corner. We thought at the time that this was prior to the paths being resealed. The gravel is still there and has become progressively rougher. A number of elderly live in Aberfoyle Place particularly with some City Council flats being in the area and other retired people also in residence. Recently, I witnessed my neighbour who has mobility issues having to walk on the road with her walker because the footpaths are too rough for her to negotiate. This will affect a number of people. In addition to this there is a large pothole with a road cone in it right at the entrance in the middle of the road where you turn into Aberfoyle Place from Donnington Street. It is necessary to swing onto the wrong side of the road to exit Aberfoyle Place and this again is a safety issue. I would ask that these issues receive some urgency due to the risk involved to the residents in the area. Anyone with any mobility issues at all, whether it be using a walker, walking stick or mobility scooter is unable to walk on the paths at present and must place themselves at risk of falls or worse by having to walk on roads, where traffic is compromised by already having to avoid potholes without introducing the extra "hazard" of pedestrians sharing the roads!
  • Traffic Light Cycle
    I have the misfortune of having to turn out of Armagh Street on to Cranmer Square. It is a long wait and for some reason other traffic seems to get two greens before you get one. Today it was FOUR. In fact the truck in front went to stop traffic to get around on the red. I can understand why the through traffic gets longer but four or five minute wait for a green light is nuts.
  • Gold Bus

  • Truck Blocking Cycle Lane
    Every time I travel past here, whether it be by bike, car or bus. There is always a truck blocking the cycle lane. Could the council please advise the owner of this truck to not park there or fine them or get the police to fine them for blocking a cycle lane.
  • Blocked alleyway.1 update
    The alley is blocked in such a way as to make it impossible to use with a stroller and probably very difficult to use on a bicycle. See photo.
  • TC4067 Silver Subaru
    Parked outside 275 Memorial ave,for last fortnight no apparent owner in neighbourhood - would appreciate it being moved on.
  • Road sign in cycle path
    Road sign in cycle path on the south west bound lane of Wainoni Road before the junction with Breezes Road. Road sign is marked ISAAC. Note an issue was reported in the same location on 11th Feb. That sign was moved to the pavement, but has now returned to the cycle path.
  • Right turn GREEN arrow broken
    The traffic light pole nearest the petrol station has a broken GREEN arrow. The south traffic turning right from Hagley , into west end of Moorhouse Ave do not turn because it is the ONLY green arrow visible.
  • Storm water drains blocked
    Drain covers have not been removed after SCRIT has completed repairs. ALL drains down Antigua St are blocked by the covers causing flooding.
  • Street lights out
    Street lights have been out for several days and is dangerous for driving at night.
  • Road shrubs require trimming
    The entire Mt Pleasant road trees and shrubs require trimming back, blocking drains (water flows onto road), obscuring signs (especially the one way section) and making it difficult to see around the corners when driving down the hill.
  • Lifted tar seal and growing potholes after flooding
    At approach to stop sign on Malcolm Avenue areas of tar seal have lifted due to todays flooding. Traffic through it has broken the road surface up which has left expanding potholes and loose gravel on the road - this is a safety issue being at the mentioned stop sign.
  • Water leak
    Near the corner of Bassett St and Travis Rd a small water spout has started coming out of the road. This happens continuosly in this area when we have flooding. Thanks
  • Traffic lights on pedestrian crossing too slow to change
    Once the pedestrian crossing button is pushed the wait is several minutes. (It seems even longer during busy traffic periods.) During that time most students just run across the road on the green (traffic) light. Then the lights change and cars are made to wait while there's no one left to cross.
  • Construction advertising obscuring traffic light
    AGL Scaffolding have placed a lovely blue advertising sign right in front of the traffic light for south bound traffic on Ilam Road at the Creyke Road intersection. There is plenty of room to place the sign higher so that the red light is not obscured. How anybody can do this intentionally is beyond me. Please have them remove it as soon as possible and indicate their liability for any collision or harm caused by it. It's been like this for a week.
  • Flooding
    Drain at corner Menzies and Nayland St blocked and flooding to crown in road. Overflow flooding onto property at 8 Menzies st.
  • Blocked Drain
    The drain is on the corner of Vivian and Bassett Streets and is blocked and flooding across the street.
  • road1 update
    Large pothole.1metre in diameter. Down near coca cola.blightlings road woolston.
  • Blocked drain
    Drain is blocked. See the photo I took this morning at around 10.15am that shows half the road is flooded.
  • Contractors block the cycle lane and street is narrow1 update
    Contractors have put signs in the cycle lane on Victoria St at the intersection with Bealey. Because there is a right turning lane for cars going into Papanui Rd, the remaining lane is very narrow. If you are a cyclist entering Victoria St from Papanui you have nowhere to go, especially if there is a bus or a truck.
  • Burst water pipe in road
    There is a burst water pipe leaking into the gully opposite the Edith Cavell nursing home. In Dryden Street. Noticed at 4 pm today.
  • Very uneven road - Main Road near Moa Cave
    Earthquake damaged road is uneven and causing large (damaging) vibrations to houses in the vicinity. Every time a larger vehicle passes vibrations are significantly shaking houses especially houses waiting to be earthquake repaired. This road is a level 1 road and there are approximately 25,000 vehicles passing daily. This vehicle frequency is significant and I hope that the road is levelled correctly FIRST TIME. (This is NOT a patch up job - new road section is required).
  • large pothole outside #7 Dorfold Mews, avonhead
    Pothole is developing in street adjacent to a slightly raised manhole cover, approx. 350mm around and about 100mm deep, getting worse.
  • Massive pothole yet again collapsed after repair in my driveway
    The pothole at the end of my driveway has again collapse and is very difficult to avoid. It is damaging the Underside of our cars. It has been fixed several times. And always seems to just sink again and collapse.
  • Cycle path blocked by temporary TM sign
    At the Tuam / Barbadoes Sts intersection is a safety hazard for cyclists heading south on Barbadoes St, forcing them into the traffic flow. It has been created by the placement of temporary management signs while SCIRT rebuild work is in progress on Tuam. It has been like this for weeks. It has been reported directly to SCIRT on 12th Feb but still remained a week later. There is a simple solution but nothing has been done to fix it.
  • People using Holly Road as a cut through to Papanui Road
    Holly Road is a very narrow street and when cars are parked on both sides of the street it is very hard to get down the road. People also use this as a cut through to Papanui Road so the speed humps and 20km signs are totally disregarded. There is no meant to be no right turn into Papanui Road from Holly Road but people do it. I suggest a raised median strip on Papanui road intersection will stop people using Holly road as a cut through road and turning right into Papanui rd.
  • Pond full of rubbish
    Hi, This pond has a lot of rubbish in it. Most of it is leaves and branches, but there's also a few bottles etc. A clean up at some stage would be greatly appreciated. Cheers.
  • Grass Verge
    There is about 40 metres of broom and other noxtious weeds growing along the verge. It used to be grass. When the mower comes down the street now it is impossible for that area to be mown as the broom etc. has got out of control. It is also constantly being used as a place to dump rubbish. Would be great if it could be seen too. Thanks
  • Speed sign in cycle lane.
    Speed sign in cycle lane, at intersection of Wainoni and Breezes roads, Christhcurch.
  • broken green bulb
    Hi there, There's a broken green bulb in the traffic signals at the intersection of Barbadoes/Edgeware. It's on the pole on the corner where there are the group of shops and dairy and its the set of signals facing down Edgeware Road. Many thanks!
  • loose chips on road from sealing
    Hi there, I cycle down Edgeware Road every day and there's a big mound of excess road chips at the intersection of Edgeware/Packe St. This road was resealed a while ago and these are excess chips which have ended up in a pile. Because I need to keep left to allow for passing traffic when on my bike I usually have to ride through the mound of seal chips and it's a bit of a hazard. Would be good if the excess chips could be swept up.
  • Sinkhole
    A sinkhole is forming in the flush median outside 278 Kilmore Street. The hole in the road surface is only about 10 cm in diameter, but it is at least 0.5 m deep, and the cavity under the road surface is much larger than the tiny hole visible from above.
  • Motorbike activity & Speeding in Reserve
    In the Heathcote towpath there is motorbike activity in this bird reserve, not only should there be no motorbikes but they speed up and down the paths, this is a real hazard to people as well. These off road motorbikes also have no identifications or registrations and happens at least every 2-4 days. Rangers have been down but abused and they have no real power to do anything. I would suggest putting up fences that make it hard to get motorbikes through.
  • Collins Street and Church Square being used as shortcut
    Hi, The roads around Church Square are designated as recommended cycle routes. This is presumably because they are quiet back streets that are safer for cycling. I go (slightly) out of my way on my cycling commuting route to cross Brougham St at Collins St for exactly this reason. Unfortunately, since the opening of the Southern Motorway, Brougham St has been experiencing regular traffic congestion at peak times. Now this does not bother me as a cyclist but what does concern me is that there are drivers short-cutting through Church square by turning left into Collins St. The Church Square roads are not suitable for large quantities of traffic as they are narrow, the road surface is sub-standard, there are traffic calming measures in place and a lot of local workers use it as a parking precinct. Often the short-cutting drivers drive aggressively and far too fast for the conditions, presumably in an attempt to beat the traffic on Brougham st and possibly because they are already frustrated from being stuck in a traffic jam. This creates not only a hazard to other drivers but also hazardous conditions for local pedestrians and cyclists using the cycling route. I recommend that the council investigate measures to reduce this short-cutting. Perhaps the Collins St intersection should be closed to left turning traffic off Brougham.
  • in ground light
    The In ground in footpath light nearest Wigram Rd has not worked for some months. Can this be repaired please.
  • Bulb in cycle button broken
    The push button for cyclists in Hagley Park wishing to cross Deans Ave to Kilmarnock St has a broken bulb. When the button is pushed, or cycles activate the in-ground sensor, the light indicating that your presence has been detected does not illuminate. It's just a broken bulb as the signals operate correctly and give a cycle phase.
  • car possibly abandoned
    There has been a maroon coloured Toyota car (Reg. NK7717) parked at the cul de sac end of Midas Place (Middleton, Christchurch) for over a week. It is currently registered and warranted although there is no warrant sticker on the windscreen. This is not a residential area and there has been no movement of the vehicle nor any person seen around the vehicle for a while. Its not parked illegally, it just seems odd that it hasn't moved from this area in such a long time.
  • collect road cones please
    Hi, two road cones left for the last month near a new bit of seal. Am assuming they've just been forgotten! 10A Denman St.

  • Pothole at end of driveway - ever since new footpath done
    Hello There has been a Pothole at end of driveway - ever since new footpath done, which was probably a year ago? Can't remember when, but getting sick of my car going into it everyday.
  • Hole is ashphalt1 update
    A hole has formed in the ashphalt right in front of the driveway of 11 albert sheppard close. It seems that the earth underneath has eroded away and there would be atleast a 10-15cm space underneath the hole. It seems to be getting worse as cars drive over it. Someone could eventually get stuck or damage a wheel if they don't notice it or it gives way more under them.
  • Trees covering signage
    Bushes on SW corner fence by subdivision entry obscure Broken Run sign on fence.
  • Speed Sign Wrong Way Round
    The 50km/70km has been put back the wrong way. It is now indicating 70km past the school and Play Centre.
  • parked too close
    The vehicle has been parked outside our place for two weeks now and has not moved and is parked too close to our driveway.
  • Berm
    Berm on Waimakariri Road overgrown with broom and other noxious weeds. I thought the council would have delt to it by now as city care goes passsed it every day. It is an area approximately 50 metres long. It needs to be cleared so it can be easily maintained. Even the mower man can't mow down there anymore. Thanks
  • pothole in cycle path
    There is a dangerous pothole in the cyclelane at the point the new (as yet not sign posted, named or used) road joins Halswell Rd. This is on the Nth bound side of the road about 20-50m south of Templetons Rd. This is a high speed section of road, the cycle lane is not very wide and the pothole is deep and dangerous - please fix ASAP Thanks very much.
  • Bad road conditions
    The condition of the road surface along North Parade, Shirley Road and Marshland Road is full of potholes and uneven surfaces. These streets are in very bad condition, and is causing suspension problems for my car as I drive over them day after day. When are these streets going to be resurfaced and resealed to nice flat smooth streets again?
  • Inconsistent traffic lights
    The traffic light system from intersection to intersection along Riccarton Road, Bealey Avenue, Blenheim Road, Moorhouse Avenue (in fact all over Christchurch) is terribly out of sync and causing unnecessary interruptions in traffic flow. It is a common scenario for me to drive literally from one intersection to the next encountering a continual series of red lights one after the other - with no green light continuity between the intersections at all. This occurs regardless of the amount of traffic and time of day. By the time I manage to approach each of the following intersections the traffic lights turn red and stop the flow of traffic, one intersection after the other. Whatever syncing or timing events that are currently in place (if at all?) between each set of lights is extremely ineffectual. When is the traffic light system in Christchurch going to be reviewed for effective syncing to assist traffic flow?
  • Potholes and rough road surface - cycle hazard
    The road surface in this area is particularly rough and hazardous for cyclists. An area of about 10-20m in length in front of the probation centre. There are potoles, humps and gravel in this area. I have seen another cyclist fall off their bike here and I often have to swerve into the vehicle area of the road to avoid this area.
  • Major car repairing
    This car has been here for several weeks. White starlet, the purple starlet has not been mobile for several weeks either
  • Abandoned vehicles
    Abandoned vehicles and major car repairing done on the road. This has been going on for many weeks now. The brown jeep (DWM396) has not moved for a couple of months now and is not registered. On the photo supplied you can see the white starlet in the background.
  • Metal cover over hole in footpath dangerous
    On the west side colombo st footpath between cathedral square and cashel st mall there is an approx 1m square metal plate over a hole in the ground that is bent and sticks up approx 50mm on onside, if someone walks into this it would cause a nasty injury
  • Change of traffic light sequence1 update
    Hi there. The sequence of the lights has been changed resulting in large delays in exiting the businesses on the south side of the intersection. I was hoping the lights could be changed back so that north & south traffic has green light at the same time and a sign installed - 'Turning traffic must give way to straight trough traffic'. It would probably be easier to explaain on the phone if you could phone the number below at your convenience. Thank you. Rhys
  • Kilmore Street lights
    Now that Kilmore street reopened. When are the traffic lights goint to be changed back to as they were. In particular Durham/victoria/kilmore intersection. Durham & Victoria get 2x series of green for every one of Kilmore. A 2 minute wait for those on Kilmore.
  • Toyota Van. Registration No: WO8326 Registration expired July 2013
    This van has been parked outside our property for a few days now.It is not secure - a side window is missing - and could be a prime target for vandalism (Arson, etc). It also limits parking, which is often an issue on this street. We would like this van removed ASAP, Thank you.

  • Large dangerous tree - needs felling
    There is a large conifer tree (Macrocarpa) on a property bordering Wilkinsons Road opposite No 14 Wilkinsons Rd. The tree is in a terrible state after the snow in 2012 branches broke off and damaged the powerlines below, in the big wind of september 2013 more limbs of the tree fell and again nocked the power out of several hundred homes, the latest incident happened on the week of 14 Oct 13 when a southerly wind blew another branch off the tree leaving it partially attached to the tree but in a very dangerous situation. The tree needs to be brought down before someone looses their life.
  • Trench has Sunk (Pothole)
    A trench was dug across Awatea Road. Following reinstatement the trench (repair) has sunk. It needs to be "Topped up" with Ashphalt. It is very rough / dangerous to drive over.
  • Dangerous repairs to road
    Can somebody spare some tar seal for the road outside the Palms Shopping Centre. I recently had my vehicle wheels realigned but I don't know why I bothered. A patch of road was recently cut then dug up but only a few centimetres of tar seal was put back in the road leaving a lip of about 2cm at each edge. If you catch your tyres on the edge of the groove this causes damage to the sidewalls of the tyres. To cap it all off when you reach the end of the groove one of your wheels thuds into a dirty great pothole waiting at the end of it.
  • large pothole
    A large, deep pothole has formed here which is dangerous and extremely destructive to vehicles. This appears to be a sinkhole, which is getting bigger. It has been patched, but has got worse again. Our house shakes like a just like a level4 earthquake every time a vehicle hits it.

  • Improper street entran
    35mm cut down kerb at Thorrington/Colombo is out of compliance with CCC Design code and presents hazard to cyclists. It is also out of compliance with: "Austroads Guide to Traffic engineering Practice Bicycles Part 14 1999 Construction and Maintenance 8.1 General Smooth, debris free surfaces are a fundamental requirement for riding bicycles in safety on paths, and on all roads, from freeways to local streets. ... … Most bicycles have no suspension or shock absorbers and many bicycles have relatively thin tyres inflated to high pressures. Consequently, when a cyclist hits a pothole at speed it is most uncomfortable, difficult to maintain control and potentially hazardous for the cyclist. Surface irregularities that are not noticeable in a motor vehicle on roads can make cycling unpleasant and slow down the travel speed considerably." I met with Alan Beuzenberg of CCC in mid 2010 and was assured this would be fixed. The quakes hit and I have waited patiently for repairs. Please advise when this will be urgently completed.
  • Many potholes, obscured after heavy rain

  • Small pothole pushes bikes into traffic
    A small pothole on the corner of Hagley Av and St Asaph St, right on the pedestrian crossing, means bikes must pull out into the way of cars turning the corner. Not essential to remove, but it would be nice to be able to bike around the corner at the same time as a car turns around the corner.

  • Sign post vandalised and removed
    A sign post has been vandalised and removed from the ground and is now lying on the ground next to the bus stop sign.
  • Roadworkers preventing pedestrian access
    Roadworkers are preventing pedestrian access to/from properties at various times of the day. This is compounded by the flooding on the other side of the road, and is even more unacceptable for those who have mobility issues and aren't able to walk around the block to access their property.
  • Flooding
    Flooding of the road due to road works pumps are preventing access to/from the footpath, also vehicles aren't slowing down and are showering pedestrians. A speed bump or something might give people something to walk on and slow down vehicles, this would need to be fairly level and provide significant grip for those in the area with mobility difficulties. That or find a more appropriate way to drain roadworks pumps. This issue is present 24/7 rain or shine, this is NOT a wet weather only issue.
  • Very hard to see
    The footpath outside 99 Union Street and a few houses either side is quite dark and hard to navigate, there is a lampost but no street light. Every other lampost on this street has a light. This issue is compounded by the high residential fences and the equipment and fencing in place due to road works.
  • Large Pothole formed in North-Bound lane of Middleton Road
    There is a large pothole formed outside 60 Middleton Road which is constantly increasing in size as all traffic drives over it. There is a considerable amount of debris gathering on the road around it, as well as signs of another pothole forming a few meters in front. It's beginning to show signs of damaging vehicles due to the size of the pothole.

  • Barrington Street cycle lane paint needs reapplication
    White lines and painted signs on the much used cycle lane along Barrington Street are fading (ie nearly gone). Vehicles are now regularly parking in the cycle lane, but as the paint is fading/wearing off, it is not obvious to all that it is a cycle lane. Renewing the paint on the white lines and signs would go a long way to making this busy stretch of road a lot safer for all.

  • Cycle Lanes come to dead ends, collector road is dangerously narrow.
    This busy collector road is to carry around 11,000 vehicles per day plus is a cycle route and public transport route in the City Plan.There is to be a large commercial area at the north end at the Yaldhurst Road intersection plus future development planned north and south and west. CCC's Resource Consenting unit, CEO, Planning Chair Councillor Sue Wells and Mayor Bob Parker ignored the requirements of the City Plan, CCC's Infrastructure Design Standards, and NZ Safety Guidelines, and permitted one of the developers in this new Living G zone to build narrow grossly non-complying roads without legal consent which were then retrospectively rubber-stamped. Jarnac Boulevard through the Delamain subdivision was built to standards with cycle lanes, 4m median, safety kerb-build-out parking etc. Where this complying road connects to the Noble subdivision the cycle lanes and the median end, plus the vehicle travel width reduces and safety parking kerb build-outs are eliminated. The complying Jarnac Boulevard bottlenecks dangerously into proposed Sir John McKenzie Ave; the merging of cyclists into the narrow traffic lane with trucks, buses and cars will be extremely dangerous. The narrow non-complying road means that vehicles have to "yield" to cyclists or "squeeze" them when traffic is in both directions (most of the time on busy collector roads). With the median also eliminated right turning vehicles will block the road making it dangerous for cyclists trying to squeeze through the tight space between queued traffic and parked cars. The developer was also permitted to eliminate the cycle lanes and build-out kerb safety features on the secondary "loop road" that connects the Enterprise Homes subdivision to the East. That road is also narrow and non-complying. There are numerous dangerous pinch-points throughout this non-complying road network. The resource consenting unit bypassed all standards, safety guidelines and other council units that specialize in these areas that it butchered. It refused to consult with them (you) and oppressed the affected parties and the public from opposing these non-complying dangers as well. An investigation is now under way and I am asking you in the interests of current and future generations to assist in that inquiry to remedy these non-compliance's and dangers before they are vested and tragedies result. This is a serious issue is of a physical nature that can be fixed. It is not a criticism of all council staff but an opportunity for staff in these critical areas to finally ensure that what they work hard to achieve is implemented. Please show this publicly to enlighten all. Thank you.
  • Storm Water Grill Below Road Level
    The storm water grill at the point shown is well below street level and is a hazard for cyclists. It is not uncommon for westbound traffic to attempt to overtake someone ( at speed) riding a bike on the roundabout and on leaving it , forcing the biker to ride very close to the pavement . This hazard is completely hidden at night and would cause damage to a cycle and probably result in an accident . Thank you

  • Roads do not line up and large hole
    Hi the roads do not line up where Glenarm meets The new formed Gayhurst road. The roads are not the same hight and there is a big hole that has been filled with shingle that you get bogged down in when trying to turn out of Gleanarm onto Gayhurst road. This is not safe as that roadis now 50k and you can not get into the flow of traffic. I have logged this with you before and no action has been taken. It was raised with Craig Daniels from Macdow but nothing has happened and he is not responding to my emails. Can this be hot mixed so there is a real aproch bettewn the roads ? Below is the email he sent me on the 16 of last month. Thanks EastsidepotholesHunter Good afternoon, Following on from  your query to us earlier this month, we have looked into your concern regarding the intersection of Gayhurst Road and Glenarm terrace. We have been tasked with repairing Gayhurst Road, and insuring it is appropriately levelled and resurfaced within the red zone to join in with the Gayhurst Road green zone and Gloucester Street. In regards to your query about the intersection of Gayhurst Road and Glenarm Terrace, we are in consultation with our design and the council. Glenarm Terrace is red zone and not part of our scope of works,  the road still lies with the Christchurch City Council including any maintenance that is required.

  • School Pedestrian lights
    The footpath pads are frozen and not able to activate the lights. This is going to be a huge issue from 8.20am with the school crossing. We have constant issues with these lights not activating. Re-setting on a Friday at 2.55 is not happening for over ten minutes. Not a great system for young children in rain, snow, hail or winter full stop. Staff have so many complaints we have given up. Thanks and we hope you look into fixing our issue.
  • DANGEROUS
    Hi, The road marking at this intersection is going to cause an accident. Both lanes on the roundabout when heading west have a right turning arrow although the inside lane is also straight through. I suspect the road marking in the left lane was painted and changed to straight and left only but this is not the way it appears when driving to the roundabout, Would it be manslaughter on your part if a road marking being incorrect cause an accident. For a foreigner who does not know the area and relies on the road markings this is incredibly dangerous. Please attend to asap and respond to me, I have contacted Campbell live who stated to contact you and if I hear nothing within 48 hours or see no change to let them know and they, They plan to be in Christchurch on Monday and are very interested in this story.
  • sign blocking path unnecessary
    Signs x 2 on path when should be on shoulder of road where there is plenty of room. Hazard to cyclists.
  • Overgrown vegetation
    This is a problem throughout the whole city, the council does not appear to force land owners to maintain overgrown vegetation on the footpath. On my walk to work there are a couple of instances where vegetation is either overhanging or overgrown. I'd like to know the councils policy on enforcing residents to cut back their plants/hedges etc. Thanks
  • Massive pothole
    Huge pot hole at this intersection, has doubled in size in the past week. Getting to the size that car damage could eventuate. Please fill it in, even temporarily.
  • Flooded Road
    My road is flooded, and clearly does not have adequate drainage. It is the only road in the area that was flooded.
  • Speed of traffic
    Claremont Ave runs between Paparoa St and Tomes Road; both of which have speed management rises at other intersections. Claremont Ave is the last Street off Paparoa before it turns into a dead end, so traffic can be heavy at times on Claremont Ave. especially during school hours due to Paparoa. More concerning, is the speed that traffic zooms down Claremont Ave. I'm not around in the afternoon, but in the last month I've seen 3 near misses, two involving school children, and all 3 involving speed. Both speed down the street, and from traffic entering from Tomes Road is a concern. I would to see the street upgraded with a focus on reducing traffic speed. Similar avenues off Paparoa and Tomes Road have larger grass verges, which help to slow traffic. Consideration could also be given to speed bumps. Claremont Ave receives more foot traffic than other nearby avenues due to the location of Paparoa primary. It also receives significantly more vehicle traffic as it is a part of an increasingly well known 'short-cut', where traffic cut out Cranford St and Papanui Road, by taking Rutland St, into Tomes, into Claremont, into Paparoa, into Rayburn. Because of this, Claremont should have been one if the first Avenues in the area to be upgraded, where as it appears that it is the last one to be upgraded. I understand that there is a lot of roadworks to be done Christchurch at the moment, but I also don't want to see a child struck by a vehicle travelling in excess of 70km/h, in what should be a quiet residential street.
  • Hazard - Water meter cover?? not fitting properly
    Outside the fish and chip shop on Woodham Road there is a cover which is not fitting properly over what I think is a water meter? I have already seen one person fall into the hole when they walked on it. Could cause serious harm to somebody if not fixed asap!

    There are massive pot holes at the entrance of this very well use car park can you fix them please. Also do you know that there are camper vans staying in the park often, does there need to be a sign prohibiting this, and is ther a number to call to report motorbikes in the forest which is very common? Thank you
  • Dangerous out of phase traffic lights
    If you come down Cashel St heading East when you get to Fitzgerald Ave there 3 traffic lights facing you. The set of lights on your right, in the centre traffic island, is out of phase with the other two - GREEN when it should be RED very dangerous - an accident waiting to happen especially at night.

  • Rubbish littering road
    There is a large amount of litter blowing about the road and on the verges of Styx Mill Road, near the council dump. The litter is also blowing into the protected wetland area and is endangering bird life if it gets swallowed.

  • Gravel-covered cycle path1 update
    Cycle lane along Lyttelton Street between approx. Stourbridge Street and Frankleigh is covered in loose gravel, left over from the roadworks in this area. Can this please be cleaned to provide a safe cycling surface? Also, to prevent this occurring in other places, it would be great if road repair crews were asked not to leave gravel etc in cycleways for future road works. Many thanks.
  • New rockfall partially blocking road
    New rockfall has occurred from the rockface to the east side of valley road part way up. It's not a big or dangerous rockfall but has partially blocked the road (approx 40% blocked) as well as the drain and needs removing. Rockfall happened between 7:30pm and 10pm on 29/5/2013
  • large deep pothole
    A large basketball sized pothole that has been getting bigger for the last month
  • Big pothole1 update
    A big pothole has opened up on the river side of the road across from approximately number 55 Aynsley Tce, right where the road narrows so there's nowhere to go, you just have to drive over it...
  • Lights or something needed
    The day the new motorway opened up the traffic along Halswell Junction Rd increased 500%. It is now near impossible for cars to turn right out of Edmonton Rd and many are turning left then doing a uturn at the neighbouring truck place just to turn right. As this is predominately an industrial area the problem is exaggerated by the number of trucks that can't turn and traffic is often backed up down Edmonton Rd with people unable to turn and those that can are going left first. Another accident at the corner today no doubt caused by frustration and taking too small a gap. Someone will get hurt. If they haven't already been. The new give way rule hasn't helped the situation I know the traffic volume may be temporary till the new motorway extension opens but it can't carry on as it is for that many years.
  • Potholes obstructing driveway
    Outside 684 Worcester St on the road are about 3 large potholes; it makes it incredibly difficult to navigate. A very small yet deep pothole had been fixed, and for that I am incredibly grateful. I would settle for even a bag of sand to be poured in the holes! Anything to make it a bit easier. Thank you.
  • Lage pothole in foot path since feb shake

The cone in it has been there so long it has faded in the sun. Can it be filled before some child or older person falls down it. Regards Eastside Pothole Hunter
  • Road has large ruts with holes after work done months ago and never fixed1 update
    Hi the road here and at the other end of Snell place in Dallington were dug up months ago for some form of work and never fixed just walked away from. They need filling as locals have been telling me they have been putting shingle in the pot holes to fix themselves. The one at the river end has been open since before xmass. Shingle does not work they need some hot mix. When some injures there self or gets hit by a car coming around the corner will the CCC pay the ACC bills. Regards Eastside Pothole Hunter
  • Speed limit sign needs to be moved
    The speed limit sign needs to be moved further down the road to reduce the speed of traffic outside the new homes that have been built on Wilkinsons Rd, also to reduce the speed of vehicles outside the crematorium.
  • Large hole in footpath
    On the corner of Moorhouse Avenue and Montreal St there is a deep hole in the footpath on the Countdown side of the road. There are no cones or other warnings, and this hole is nearly knee deep and difficult to see in the dark (I know this because I fell in it and smashed my brand new phone). Needs to be filled asap! Or at least marked.
  • Right turning arrow1 update
    The intersection of Brougham and Selwyn really needs a right turning arrow. This intersection is heading for an accident. I travel this way to work everyday and only one gets through this set of lights and 9/10 times on the red.

    Hi there are a large number of holes forming just past 409 river road and you must hug the center line to go around them right before the rise in the road making it danagous. These holes continue onto Mcbractneys road aswell. Can some hot mix be put in them as they are unsafe. Thanks for your time.
  • Fire Hydrant
    The Fire Hydrant in Sequoia Place is 'slowly' leaking. Also the footpaths need sealing as 2 parts are shingle only.
  • Surface needs finishing1 update
    This is an offroad cycle/pedestrian path, which has not been finished. I believe it is managed by NZTA but it is in the interests of the city council to get it sealed. Please encourage NZTA to seal it so that more people use it.

  • street lights not working
    3 steet lights not working at this end of Palmers Rd.We live at 183 palmers rd.
  • No right turning arrow from Memorial Ave onto Roydvale Ave
    There is no right turning arrow from Memorial Ave onto Roydvale Ave as motorists head towards Sir William Pickering drive. This is an increasingly busy area with many businesses forced to this side of town. The lack of a right hand turning arrow means that, at times, the right turning traffic backs up as far as Kendal Ave. Motorists are also taking risks to make the turn by entering the intersection when the lights are orange and red, simply to get around the corner. This situation is also interfering with traffic heading towards the airport on Memorial Ave.
  • Cycle Lane built over
    At the junction of Brougham Street and Spencer street, the cycle lane along Brougham St has been built over by a traffic island. This forces cycle traffic out into the middle of Brougham street and causes conflict with the cars turning left into Spencer Street. The row of street cones currently placed alongside the island make the problem worse. This is very dangerous for cyclists and frustrating for drivers. Thanks.

  • Bad smell in water running down gutter.
    Water is coming from the stormwater drain at 26 Dover St (Council housing). It doesn't smell good and we are concerned it is a sewage leak/overflow. This has been happening every few days for a number of weeks.
  • Liquifaction
    Contractors of some kind are creating liquifaction along the grass verges on this road. I don't really appreciate crossing the road and stepping on grass only for it to explode and cover my shoe it cement like soil.
  • Red arrow does not turn green
    The red arrow facing traffic on Lincoln Rd wanting to turn right into Whiteleigh Ave is on however the arrow never turns green. The arrow facing traffic on Lincoln Road wanting to turn right into Barrington Street does turn green. Because the flow on Lincoln Rd is heavy during peak times the right turning lane from Lincoln Rd to get into Whiteleigh Ave backs up and only allows for 2-3 cars to turn right into Whiteleigh per change (usually when the lights are turning from amber to red). This is creating huge frustration and leading to drivers making dangerous decisions to turn right into Whiteleigh because they a frustrated in having to wait anything from 5-15 mins. To make the intersection safer and allow for better flow it seems logical to have the green arrow activated to turn right into Whiteleigh Ave the same time the arrow turns green for those wanting to turn right into Barrington Street (both from Lincoln Rd)
  • street and restart mall
    As a visitor to Christchuruch there are many streets that DONT have street signs. Hard to find your way around now that so many of the bulidings arent there. Also very difficult to find my way to The REstart mall, more signage to help get there would be great.
  • Roundabout road markings
    I have seen several near misses on the roundabout closest to the sparks road end of curletts. South bound traffic can exit the motorway and turn right into the roundabout from both offramp lanes. West bound traffic coming into the roundabout from curletts road can go straight thru in both lanes. There are 2 lanes on the onramp to enter the motorway for south bound traffic. Which implys that both lanes in the roundabout can enter the onramps. Many times I and others have witnessed the car on the inside of the roundabout move to the left to enter one of the on ramps, only to be cut off by traffic in the out side lane going straight thru. Only a matter of time (if it hasn't happen already before there is an accident.

  • Curletts Road Lunns Road Right Turn Traffic Lights1 update
    At peak trafic times (from around 7.30 am to well after 9am) the Curletts Road Lunns Road right arrow is either not staying green for long enough. The right arrow also stays red when there are plenty of opportunities to turn right. This morning traffic was backed up back onto the motorway. With the Burmingham detour perhaps the arrow timing should be reviewed.
  • Pedestrian light and beeper not functioning on crossing of Moorhouse Ave / Gasson St
    Hi, the pedestrian crossing green light and beeper on the South side of the crossing over Moorhouse Ave at the Madras / Gasson intersection have been broken for the past few weeks. This is the pedestrian light on the South West corner of the intersection, i.e. the light you see when crossing Moorhouse from the North.

    There is a severe pinchpoint created by narrow carriageway approaching the Bealey/Harper bridge from the East. Between the foothpath and two traffic lanes, there is precious little room. As both a cyclist and motorist, I have experience numerous very frightening and close calls. Left-hand side vehicles have little room to pass with a cyclist alongside, and the issue is exacerbated by vehicles also approaching in the right-hand side lane too. On a bike, each situation is often only solved by timing one's approach to avoid being abreast with a left-hand side vehicle. Some cyclists have solved this by instead using the footpath over the bridge, but this can also be dangerous with pedestrians and cyclists then in conflict on the footpath. Solution of the situation would ultimately require widening the bridge or dropping a lane (both unlikely!), however by narrowing the vehicle lanes and marking out a short cycle lane approach to encourage mindfulness of motorists, the pinching would be less severe. I'm sure this issue has been raised probably many times before, and I wonder why it hasn’t been addressed yet – the too hard basket? It is so dangerous that I think it needs urgent attention.
  • new potholes after rain
    Some of the great repair work has been damaged by rain and potholes have formed. Currently they are small and easy to fix.
  • litter in drained riverbed Agricultural Pk near cycleway
    Hi, enter off Wigram Rd into Agricultural Park, turn left on cycleway, up onto overbridge of drained creek, below old TV casing. Asked two FH workers to please remove, when planting tree at creek edge to which they agreed, but not done. FH in process of working nearby (currently not)and creek currently dry - good opportunity for environment to be cleaned up, please. Emailed FH head office 7+ days ago but no response. Thanks
  • Potholes1 update
    Hi, there are now numerous potholes in the middle of the street (outside houses 23-27). Can these please be fixed? The holes up the Woodham Street end have been remediated thanks....
  • Recalibrate traffic light cycles
    Many of the city's traffic light timing cycles need to be re-calibrated. On some street the wait is so long people are encouraged to break the law. On some streets the wait is so short pedestrians are unable to cross safely.
  • Road sign trailer & cones in cycle lane, Ferrymead bridge1 update
    The placement of the sign causes an unnecessary hazard because the sudden constriction forces people on cycles into path of traffic. There is ample room to move sign further onto footpath while still allowing pedestrians to get by.
  • Left turning cars blocking busy cycle lane.
    The photo says it all really. Drivers are using the cycle lane as if it were a left turning lane. This is a very popular route for cyclists and perhaps the problem could be rectified as it has been on the south side of the intersection. Thanks.
  • Abandoned vehicle
    There is a car with no registration or Warrant that has been parked on our street for months now.. Also across the road is a bus with no rego or warrant
  • Removed tree on street
    There used to be a small tree planted in the middle of a grass verge between 37 and 39 Greford Street by the city council about a couple of years ago, (you can see the evidence from google map satellite), but as I was walking through the street one day, I saw that someone had deliberately sawed the tree down. Please place another tree there in its place. Thank you.
  • Bicycle Lane torn up since road works
    The bicycle lane from rutland street towards cranford street has been torn up and is extremly dangerous to cyclists, having to negotiate that mess yesterday almost cost me my life as i was almost sideswiped by a van. FIX IMMEDIATE, the surface needs to be back to its original condition for the safety of cyclists. Please ensure that the works on roads fix the surface of bicycle lanes and areas where cyclists use the roads..
  • Neighbours' hazardous parking on grass verges close to driveway
    My neighbours take turns parking the maximum of two cars on the grass verge that is right next to my driveway to my house. As the grass verge is at a 90 degree angle to my driveway, I cannot see the cars while I drive out of my house, therefore I am always concerned that there will be an accident. So I placed notes on the windows of the cars saying that it is dangerous to park on the verges so it will be for the best if they stop parking there. They ignored me, and kept parking. Then on the 28th of December at around 9 am, one of the cars parked on the verge collided with my car as I was driving out of my driveway. Obviously I could not see if any of the parked cars were about to move as in no way could I have seen with my mirrors because the cars were 90 degrees to my driveway. After the incident, they still kept parking; the lady driving the car which hit my car said that because there weren't any signs to say 'no parking on grass verge' she was legally allowed to park there. There are plenty of other parking space on our street, and I believe they do not need to park on the verge, creating a dangerous situation in every time that I drive out of my driveway. Furthermore, the lady that hit my car said that she would be more than happy to pay for my repairment at the time, but now, as of 8th of January, she says she's one hundred percent innocent and therefore she will not pay a cent towards my car repairment. Please resolve this problem as this is highly dangerous to both my neighbours and to myself. Thank you.
  • Everything has been tagged
    Pretty much everything between marhslands road and hills road has been tagged. Could be further afield, but this is the area I noticed.
  • Aberdeen St closure
    I want to use Aberdeen St as a shortcut for delivering meals on wheels by bike. The footpath on the south side can be left open for people walking or on a bike. It has been closed for what must be getting on for a year now. If the building is dangerous then remove it.
  • Dangerous/Congested Intersection
    It would be appreciated if Council would give consideration to putting a roundabout or traffic lights at the intersection of Waterloo Road and Racecourse Road. This is a very dangerous intersection, and even more so since the "left turning traffic" road rule change came into effect. Traffic is also heavier since the earthquakes, as many businesses have relocated to Hornby and nearby suburbs. Due to the large volume of traffic on Waterloo Road wishing to turn right and the type of traffic (ie heavy vehicles), this issue needs urgent attention before someone is seriously injured or killed. Traffic gets backed up, drivers get impatient and many people are taking risks pulling out in front of oncoming traffic on Racecourse Road.
  • Harman St Bike Lane Numerous Potholes
    Both West and Eastbound numerous potholes in the cycle lanes on Harman St Addington between Selwyn St and Grove Rd. These are a safety issue.
  • Trees Blocking Light And Sun
    The trees opposite 254 Harewood Rd directly opposite Bishopdale Mall,Need Pruning Or Removal.At 7pm in the summer when other neighbours are bathed in sunshine this property and close neigbours is in darkness.The offending trees appear to be the bluegums at the edge of the roundabout that are the major problem. Please council have a look at 7pm and please help resolve this
  • Cycle light not working
    There are two cycle lights on the south lane outside St Bedes school. One is not working.
  • Protruding edges of metal plates above footpath level
    Outside the Lifetime Bldg (192 Moorhouse)cnr Montreal an Moorhouse, on the Moorhouse Ave side footpath, the footpath dips/slopes and the metal plates are not lying level with the asphalt. A definite tripping hazzard.
  • Fire hydrant leaking

  • Glass on cycle path
    Every day I encouter lots of glass on the cycle path along Main South Rd, heading towards the Sockburn Roundabout (on the left hand side). Can this please be swept regularly? It seems that rather than glass slowly disappearing, more gets added each day :-(
  • cycle path obstruction
    On rubbish collection days there are wheelie bins outside businesses that block the cycle path causing cyclists to ride on the road. This is dangerous due to heavy traffic. Also on occasion there are signs blocking the path.
  • Ford Laser NP7841 update
    This car has been parked on the road just at the top end of my yard (13)for about the last 5 weeks. The rego is current but not sure of wof. It was there for a while a few months ago then went away for a couple of weeks. and has not been moved since.
  • Green Right Turn arrow doesnt work
    The Green right arrow turning from Riccarton Road into Ilam road doesnt appear to work. The no 3 bus I was on spent 5 green light phases sitting waiting to turn right into Ilam road and never once did the right turning arrow turn green to allow right turning traffic a chance. About one car a time got through on the orange if they were prepared to risk through traffic speeding through.
  • Pothole middle of road
    There is a large pothole in the raod, which someone puts a cone on every day making it dangerous for motorist. Cars are parked each side and the road turns into a narrow single lane. Be good to have the pothole fixed(its the only one on the street) Thanks very much
  • Obstructed cycle lane
    On both sides of the road the cycle lane is blocked by a speed restriction sign. This is dangerous and completely unnecessary.
  • Stormwater drain on roadside has collapsed
    Gidday, the CityCare asphalt truck parked over the yellow lines at the side of the road and has caused the Stormwater drain (big deep ones) on the roadside to collapse, leaving a hole in the roadside drain, all the rain water now runs straight into the hole and underground rather than being directed into the roadside drain and stormwater system. Outside 80 Epsom Road. East side of the street.
  • Missing Drain cover
    Roadside drain, cover/grate missing, 1 metre drop straight down without the cover on it
  • abandoned vehicle
    Vehicle unmoved for a week. Neighbours don't know who's it is. 1991 Ford Econovan, Yellow. No registration (expired 28/08/12). PY3069
  • Missing hatch cover on road
    There is a missing hatch cover on the corner of Annex Rd and Lunns Rd. The hole is a hazard to cyclists and traffic. The hole is approx 300mm in diameter - smaller than a manhole but still large enough to be dangerous. The hole is in the Southbound lane of Annex Rd near the yellow hatching.
  • Broken Road works Sign blocking cycleway
    As I cycle west on Northcote road and turn south (left) on the cycle lane into Sawyers Road there is a Broken Road works Sign and a sandbag blocking the cycle way cycleway, it has been there several weeks. The cycle lane marking has also been worn away long ago by motorists driving on it, this needs repainting too please.
  • Congestion
    Between 5.30 and 6.00pm each evening, the traffic coming off the Southern Motorway via the new Barrington Street exit is backed up for at least three changes of lights, causing traffic congestion right back to the exit. When the lights turn green, the time is too short, and only four vehicles are able to turn right into Barrington Street before the lights turn amber. There is plenty of room for more cars to turn right and the light at the next intersection almost immediately turns green also, allowing free flow of traffic down Barrington Street towards Cashmere. The timing sequence needs to be adjusted so that more vehicles are allowed to exit off the motorway.
  • Cycle Crossing Lights Not working
    Rossal Street Cycle Crossing Lights Not working on the shared pathway which runs parellel to the railway line. There is no "Cross Now" signal in either direction. There was a tech working in the signals cabinet yesterday.
  • Large hole in middle of road
    Sink type hole has appeared in the middle of the road. Currently about 500mm in diameter and 200mm deep. Has only appeared in the last few days. I have put a road cone in it to hi light it.
  • Pedestrian signal
    A truck or large vehicle has bent the pedestrian signal around so it can't be seen by motorists. Motorists are unwilling to stop because they can't see the "green man". Also, could the lights be timed to let pedestrians go first? Cars don't like waiting for them. Thanks.
  • no light
    1 of 3 faulty lights on Hillsborough Tce Others at Charlene Place & April Place
  • Congestion of Traffic
    There is heavy congestion of traffic due to poor traffic light ushering. As the road is narrow, right turning vehicles from Ilam Road to Riccarton Road have to wait for the whole flow of straight going traffic before turning. During peak hours, the flow of traffic doesn't end, so only 1 right turning vehicle can turn with each traffic light change, thus holding up all the vehicles behind, including those intending to head straight. Suggesting a right turn only light to clear the right turning vehicles, so as to smooth up the traffic. Cheers.
  • Road Works sign left behind
    There is a road works sign left behind on the footpath and the work was finished a few weeks ago
  • Pothole requiring repair
    A pothole has formed on Marshland Rd which requires attention. Exact location is: Marshland Rd, Chaneys railway crossing just south of Main North and Spencerville Rd intersection. The pothole is in the southbound lane, in the right hand wheel track for most vehicles. Its obscured on approach as its located on the crest of the rise leading to the railway crossing. The hole is worsening over time (as they do) and due to its hidden nature could be particularly hazardous to motor-cyclists.
  • Tripping hazard
    There is some kind of sign missing from approximately here (somewhere between the bus stop and the intersection, south side footpath), the base of which is left behind to stick up 2-3 inches. Hard to see in the dark, especially if you don't expect it; I nearly went face first into the road last night. Please put a cone over it or put the sign back up.
  • Dangerous parking on the footpath 2 x 4WD
    There are two large 4WD vehicles that are constantly parked up on the footpath at the safe crossing point right outside Manning Intermediate school on Hoonhay road (Outside number 49 Hoon Hay Road). These vehicles are constantly parked there up on the footpath, and children have to come between the vehicles (both of which are large 4WD's) to cross at the safe crossing point. I have witnessed a few close shaves due to this issue. Licence plates are similar to EMA**** and GB*****. Please can something be done to stop them parking on the little jutting out bit of the footpath and causing a safety issue to school children crossing busy Hoon Hay Road.
  • Traffic lights not operable
    The Traffic Lights on the corner of Main South Road and Chappie place, do not seem to have power as the lights in both directions, are not currently going.

  • Grate missing over drain
    Hi There, The grate over the drain seems to have gone missing outside our property. Bit of a hazard for vehicles, possibly getting stuck. Cheers
  • Large rise in road surface
    The intersection of Erica Street and Dulles Place has a large raised portion resulting from the earthquakes that has been there for a while now. This makes it pretty awkward to turn the corner in a car or a bike. Thanks!

  • Tree obscuring speed limit sign
    A tree on the North side of the road is obscuring the speed restriction sign
  • Missing Service Cover
    West side of Colombo just south of Woodbridge a service cover is missing. This leaves a big hole for bike wheels to be broken and rider thrown.
  • Gravel on road
    From St Asaph St to Moorhouse Ave the road has a build up of demolition gravel and crap dumped by Southern Demolition. This needs to be kept clean as it is a traffic hazard and ends up clogging the drains. Not sure why they in particular get away with this in so many areas
  • Lighting outage1 update
    Single street light in Chorley Place is not working
  • Large bumps on the footpath
    Last week I watched an elderly lady having great difficulty getting herself and her zimmer frame over this steep bump on the footpath. She told me she reguarly walks to Beckenham shops from the resthome and she was always afraid that one day she would not manage this mountain in her path and fall. It's marked, but that does not stop it from being an obstacle. I related that story to my friend, who told me that she had tripped on that same lump at night as she was running and injured her shoulder. Thank you
  • Pedestrian green light lamp is blown?
    At Hansons Lane & Blenheim Rd "T" intersection, the "cross now" noise happens, but the little green man doesn't light up. It's the light on the pole closest to the Millers curtain shop on Blenheim Rd.
  • Road munted
    Badly rutted road approaching last southeast road hump.
  • Cycle lane crosses flow of traffic
    See attached photo. Every morning I have traffic try and pull into me because they think I am turning left, whereas the cycle lane goes straight ahead. This is partly related to the left lane being closed.
  • broken pedestrian crossing switch NE side
    The pedestrian crossing switch on the NE side of Brougham/Collins intersection is broken. I have to wait until a car comes for the lights to turn green for me. Everyone else just J-Walks but I don't want to do that with my 4 year old daughter. I need to cross this road to get to my daughter's preschool. Could this please be fixed ASAP. Thanks
  • Street full of holes
    Road is badly potholed and heavy vehicles bounce over it making a lot of noise.
  • Road works unsafe for cyclists
    Currently there is road works on Linwood ave where it meets Avonside drive/Woodham rd. The road work warning signs have been set in Avonside drive in the cycle lane (heading east). The speed limit continues to be 50kmh and it is on a blind corner. It seems possible that a car going around the bend could hit a cyclist moving out into the road to avoid the signs. Changes: > Find the road company who put up the road works and educate them about the difference between curbs and cycle lanes. and either Remove signs onto road way, to allow cycle lane to be used. or Drop speed to 30kmh and put up extreme care cyclists merging signs. Emailed the CCC 21 st of Feb still no reply Talked with Road workers won't change it till council tells them they have too.
  • Obstruction on the footpath
    A demolision project has used most of the footpath for rubble etc, blocking access and making the footpath very difficult to use. Mobility scooters and women with prams have to go on the streets or cross the road. Please could you have this passage cleared asap?! Its been like this for months. A residential land owner would never have gotten away with this! Thanks.

    I went to the play ground yesterday and found there to be lots of glass shards and pieces all over the bark chips in the play equipment. there was also a lot of litter and the bark chips were mostly dust and dirt. perhaps it needs new bark putting in
  • Very bumpy footpath / cycle track in St James park
    The footpath / cycle track along the railway side of St James Park has a very bumpy surface and is a bit broken up. This makes cycling along it really unpleasant.
  • Cycle lane has been repaired badly - very bumpy
    The problem area is the cycle lane on the East (South-going) edge of Clarence Street just South of Dilworth Street. This is part of the main road surface, not on the pavement. The road was repaired some time in 2011, and the patch is about as smooth as corrugated iron. Cyclist tend to avoid it, causing clashes with motorists. Please send the incompetents who did the repair job back to fix it, in their own time at their own expense!
  • Dangerous pipe
    On the round grassy area immediately to the south of Cave Rock in Sumner, there is a 120mm vertical pipe with no cover. There is water at the bottom. This pipe is located on the NW edge of the grassy area and is partially covered by grass. My concerns are that a small child could fall down the pipe, or that someone could injure their foot by stepping in the pipe opening as it is very hard to see.
  • water leaking
    Water leaking near letter box noticed since street had new water mains installed .. we are suppose to be conserving water would be nice to have this fixed. Thanks
  • Foot path/pavement
    Gravel put down after the Feb quakes to cover silt from liquefaction has been buried in new silt following June and Dec quakes. Please re-gravel to prevent dust hazard (limits road visibility) and to protect health (increases asthma. Alternatively please re-tarseal.
  • Stormwater blocked below street level
    Each time it rains, no water can drain down the grate outside 2 Algie Place, because it is blocked way down in the nether regions. I've tried clearing it myself, but I think the blockage is in a pipe downstream.
  • Glass on the cycle lane
    A pane of sheet glass is broken on the cycle lane
  • Blocked Footpath
    This is the second time I have reported this issue but the first seems to have been removed. The footpath on the south east side of the Barbadoes/Cashel St intersection is blocked causing a pinch point for both pedestrians and cyclists. It has been like this since Feb 2011. It really is past the time for the property owners to clear away their mess. If they don't, it should be done for them.
  • Yellow no parking lines on Barbadoes St
    Not a complaint but a thank you! The recently painted yellow lines have made it much more pleasant to ride with less parked cars. It would be good to extend the lines south east side of the Cashel St intersection if the property owners are going to be allowed to block the footpath.
  • Plants overhanging footpath
    Plants overhanging footpath on Marine Drive Diamond Harbour caused me to duck under them and step onto a kerb that wasn't there throwing me into the road and injuring me (quite badly).
  • Overhanging plants and damaged kerb
    Overhanging plants caused me to step into damaged kerb which threw me over and into road
  • Kerb damage and overhanging plants
    The footpath on Marine Drive is partly blocked by overhanging plants. This caused me to step towards the kerb which has a damaged area (where a under-path drain runs out into the gutter). Because the kerb is missing at this point my left foot dropped into the gutter and threw me off balance right out into the road. I damaged my knee, two palms, my hip but worst of all my ankle is badly sprained. I am only 6 feet tall and walk carefully - the big problem is the overhanging plants which restrict the path and make one look at them rather than holes in the kerb.
  • Red right turn arrow not working1 update
    The red right turn arrow at the corner of Hansons Ln and Riccarton Road is not working. This is the second arrow you see heading East on Riccarton Road turning right into Hansons Lane.
  • Hump in road
    The hole in the road or the hump caused by the manhole rising when heavy traffic goes over this is very noisy and shakes our home. Already asked council but no reply. They already filled in a similar home on the other side of the road.
  • Warning sign blocking cycle lane
    A road works warning sign for an adjacent street has been blocking the cycle lane at this point for weeks now, pinching cyclists at this point. The situation is made more dangerous by a crossing island just before the sign which forces vehicles to the left. Please either relocate the sign on to the footpath, or remove it altogether (it does not appear to be serving any safety purpose).
  • Blocked Footpath
    Barbadoes St east side, corner of Armagh St. During open hours the adjacent cafe puts furniture out blocking the street. Cyclists have to use this footpath to go north as it is the only route available inside the Four Avenues.
  • Pothole on Barbadoes St footpath.
    Pothole on Barbadoes St east side footpath, south of Bealay Ave. Has been like that for a while now. Have seen someone on a mobility scooter and another person with white stick using this path in recent days. It is also an issue in the dark.
  • Water leakage from water meters
    Water appears to be leaking from water meters outside 6/8 Erica street and outside 12 Erica Street. I lifted the metal lids up and they're filled with water.
  • Dip in the road shaking houses.
    A dip/level change in the road is causing houses within around 50m to shake, when the dip is crossed by a bus or demolition truck etc, even when traveling at/below 50kmh. Shaking is enough to cause alarm in animals (including humans)
  • damaged footpath1 update
    The entry way to my property has been damaged by the earthquakes and is dangerous.The footpath has been pushed up and there is a hollow underneath,our cars now scrape on the footpath when we drive in.we have now been rezoned green so would like this fixed properly.ie levelled and resealed please.
  • Toilets just south of pier
    These toilets have not been open for a long time (although they were open for a short time after the main earthquakes.) This is very bad, with all the people who are using the beach now that spring is here and summer approaching. There appears to be nothing wrong with them, so why are they not in use? And if they can't be opened, how about some portaloos?

  • Pothole on footpath outside property
    We have a deep pothole on the footpath at the end of our driveway caused by the recent earthquakes. (Sitation - 41 Kingsbridge Drive, Burwood, Christchurch. This has been there since February 22. Could it please be filled in temporarily as it is a danger to pedestrians walking by and to ourselves. Thank you.
  • Pathway dustbowl
    Liquefaction raised the tarsealed footpath in the February quake. CCC removed all but about 2m of the tarseal and replaced it with gravel. Liquefaction buried the gravel in the June quake. The grassy verge is impossible to mow as the surface is so uneven. The tree has died. The exposed silt creates large amounts of dust which is is a hazard to pedestrians and to health. The path needs to be gravelled, the verges levelled, the silt needs to be replaced with soil and re planted in grass and one kowhai tree. At least 6 houses in this block have similar issues. This was reported to CCC via Civil Defence late June.
  • Richmond Hill Drain
    On Wednesday PM Aug 17th..it was noticed that the Richmond Hill drain was not functioning as observed at the Nayland street grating. The overall drain was ineffective to the point that the front portion of the land at 14 Marriner Street was under 100+ mm of water. The storm water gratings along Marriner Street were also overflowing. It was not raining heavily at the time, but there was some snow melt.
  • Road surface holes1 update
    There are some holes that have formed since the snow.(due to the grader going along the street) This part of the road has been fixed recently due to the earthquake. The holes start outside 111 Bassett Street and continue outside 109 Bassett Street as well.This portion of the road seems to be continually breaking away since the earthquake. Many thanks
  • Road surface breaking up, water trapped in gutter
    The gutter outside 39, 41 and 43 Totara Street is below the level of the storm water drain. This gutter consequently is almost permanently full of water, and the adjacent road surface is beginning to break up. Furthermore, there is a constant overflow of water from the water main outside 37 Totara which adds to the problem.
  • Tagging on Shops

  • Significant potholes in road1 update
    There is significant pot holing along Mathers Road across from the Church
  • Need for pedestrian crossings
    With the huge increase in traffic using Clyde Rd and Ilam Road it is very difficult to cross the road especially for the elderly. There is an urgent need for a pedestrian crossing to be located on both Ilam Rd and Clyde Rd. Even with the roundabout it is still not safe to cross either road. There are a lot of elderly people in the area.
  • Busy road too narrow
    This busy road is too narrow for parked cars, cyclists, and moving cars to share it. It should be widened, or be changed to have no parking, in order to make it safe.

    Hi there, I hit a sizeable rock that buckled my front wheel and blew the tyre on descending Evans Pass on Wednesday morning. There was quite a bit of debris on the road after rock removal post earthquake. Will launder underwear at own cost:) P.s. picture of bike and hound added to raise a smile and he looks cute.
  • Earthqauke Damage pot hole in front of Driveway
    CCC did have cones marking this pot hole, however someone over the weekend has removed them. This hole really needs fixing rather than putting more cones back! CCC have been advised.
  • cycleway marking has been removed2 update
    A hazard has been created to cyclists where two vehicle lanes merge into one at this point leaving no room for cyclists
  • Bus shelter being removed
    Why is the bus shelter being removed at 86 Pages Road.
  • Tripping hazard of collapsing meter box in pavement
    Black plastic water meter box is distorted and lid liable to fall in, on Salisbury St pavement close to new public mini-park 'Victoria Green'. The damage preceeded creation of park (probably when buildings were demolished or pavement resurfaced)and was previously reported to CCC by locals.
  • Give way to the right rule not working
    The give way to the right rule does not work well AT ALL on this west stretch of Latimer Square. To take the right of way on the north end as a cyclist is inviting certain death (or a prang for a driver) and at the south intersection with hereford everyone wants to give way to each other. Please could the council consider putting Give Way signs at either end of this minor street, giving priority to collector roads Hereford and Gloucester. I dread biking this bit of road and have had several near misses and abuse from drivers
  • Broken Glass in cycle lane
    Broken glass in cycle lane forcing cyclists into traffic
  • Leaking Water Toby
    Main water toby at 21 Cherrywood is full of water. Suspect loeak has been caused during earthquake.
  • Vandalism of astrolabe and pedestal
    The astrolabe in the centre of the rose garden of Abberley Park has been knocked off its pedestal. The limestone pedestal has been badly damaged.
  • Unsealed footpath after Chorus maintenance
    There is an unsealed patch on the footpath outside 114 McCormacks Bay Road that was left unsealed after Chorus maintenance. The maintenance was completed prior to Xmas.
  • Small pothole
    There is a small (300MM) pothole at the entrance to Basil Place of McCormacks Bay Road.
  • Missing drain grate
    Missing drain grate near 171 Aldwins Road
  • Tully Lane sign post broken
    The wooden sign post for Tully Lane has snapped off at ground level. Not sure if this is due to wind or vandalism. The sign post is now lying on the ground.
  • Rubbish dumped
    A whole pile of household rubbish has been dumped in the Hoon Hay Scenic Reserve (by the top of the Watling Track). It's pretty gross!!
  • Road sign has been pulled out of ground
    Cnr Totara and Ngahere St Roadsign is out (there is someone doing this in Fendalton as I have reported 2 others nearby)
  • Road sign has been pulled out
    The corner of Kahu and Kotare. Some one has pulled out the road sgign and its siting there on the ground, See photo
  • Repair bridge1 update
    Footbridge across creek has been closed since the earthquake with 3m high fence to stop people using it. <p> The concrete structure looks quite sound. So, is it really so dangerous, considering that only pedestrians and cyclists use it? <p> If it is dangerous, why has it taken so long to repair? It is a real hassle for people to use Avondside Drive.
  • Car parking needs to be removed.1 update
    Footpaths on both sides are closed and traffic is one lane but cars are still allowed to park there, making it dangerous for pedestrians. Why are we repeatedly confornted with these sort of issues? There must be a limited number of managers who oversee the contractors who do this sort of thing. There must be some form of penalty that discourages them from doing it.
  • Offensive painting on footpath
    Offensive pentagram symbols painted next to the bus shelter.
  • access to 44-50 Valley Rd is rapidly deteriorating
    The access to the ROW for 44-50 Valley Rd is potholed and collapsing into the open drain along the road edge. Storm water is undercutting the access way. Major water run off from the blocked drain and ROW are now scouring out the large potholes and cars and trucks are rapidly increasing the bad state of the area.
  • broken at side of road
    broken at side of road in cycling area south side of road
  • Road surface breaking up, hole cover slippery.
    This left turn from blenhem road into matipo street is dangerous for cyclests and motocyclests both. First, the communications manhole cover has been worn smooth by car & truck tyres and is extremly slippry when dry and very dangerous when wet. Second, the road surface between that manhole cover and the gutter, which is the only safe place to ride a bicycle without hitting the manhole or riding too wide out into the joining road is breaking up.
  • Permenantly cloggged open drain
    The drain in front of the letterboxes is always blocked and when it rains, water immediately flows over the driveway and down the hill across the road, creating aslipping hazard for cars and pedestrians alike (who also must use the road due to the lack of a footpath). The many trees in the area (some on council land) means that unblocking the drain is only a temporary soloution. In addition several cars have gotten wheels stuck in the drain while exiting the driveway due to its depth. Covering the drain would not only stop water flowing across the road and the area used as a footpath, but also improve the safety of the area(the drain is large enough for a child to fall down, this has happened once to my knowledge) All the residents are tired of this unsightly, unsafe and defunct drain which has been in this state for several years We hope that someone has the time to come and look at it to solve this isssue. Thank you for your consideration. (Photo attached)
  • Street sign broken
    The Balmoral Lane street sign is damaged and needs to be restrapped to the electricity supply power pole.
  • Broken glass on road
    Colombo Street, east side just south of Brougham Street
  • Water leak
    Located in centre of east-bound lane
  • Gutter doesn't Drain
    Gutter outside 20 Stedley Place doesn't frain into the drain outside 12 Stedley Place due to the gutter sloping in the wrong direction resulting in stagnent water sitting in the gutter all the time
  • Trees need trimming!
    Putting in a separate report as the prior seems ignored, these trees along here by the rugby club are now in places < 6 foot from the path, they need trimming before the path becomes impassable.
  • Smashed glass on side of the road
    Broken glass on the south west corner of Barbadoes Streets, intersection with Gloucester
  • New road surface damage
    Immediately following new road surfacing, trucks servicing the building of a new house tore up the new surface and created potholes. Since it takes 6 months for the road to settle, it is hoped that the costs for repari are passed on to the appropriate companies/private individuals and not to the ratepayer. This issue was reported to the Council immediately but no action appears to have occurred.
  • Grassy verges1 update
    Blakely contractors spread soil full of weed seed, and sowed grass seed too late in June 2010 so that now grass growth along the street is patchy, and weeds and cracked earth are prominent. No watering has occurred. Six large maple planted in July 2010 are dead. On receiving this advices the Council arranged more soil and grass seed in Dec 2010 but not enough to complete the job. No weed control occurred.
  • Overgrown shrubs obstructing vision
    The shrubs adjacent to the motorbike parking on Oxford Terrace (immediately behind the Price Waterhouse Coopers building) are overgrown. When moving out of the motorbike parking area it is very hard to see if any vehicles are approaching from the right hand side. Very dangerous. Thanks in advance! Barry
  • Missing Water Meter Cover
    Missing meter cover at 44 Leitch Street
  • Pothole next to gutter1 update
    A moderate pothole forming next to the gutter on the roundabout. Could be a nasty trap for an unsuspecting cyclist.
  • Glass on medium strip after traffic island
    Heading North East from the Moorhouse intersection, it is just past the first traffic island.
  • Dangerous when wet!
    The underpass on Grimseys Road under QEII drive is in desperate need of channels down each side of the tunnel to stop water running across the ramps leading in and out. These often freeze in winter and become a real hazard.
  • Footpath/Bikepath seal damaged and removed
    Lateral spreading caused by the earthquake has damaged the seal on the path approaching the foot bridge. The damaged surface has been removed but not replaced.
  • Very poor broken road surface.2 update
    The road surface in the cycle lane upto and just past dilworth street heading away from riccarton road is in very poor condition and is almost cant be used on a cycle, this needs resolving.
  • Trees Need Trimming3 update
    The tree along the shared path on Innes Road between Brigg Road and QE2 Drive need lifting. A present it is difficult to ride some of this because of low hanging foliage.
  • pedestrian stop button is jammed off
    3 days ago I pushed the button to cross the street but the button would not push. This is the light used by boys going from the residence to boys high every day.
  • Left turning arrow (Main South Road into Shands Road) stays red
    At night when turning left from Main South Road into Shands Road, if there is no straight through traffic heading west, the left turn arrow will stay red though multiple cycles of the traffic lights.
  • Angle parking here is extremely dangerous for bicycles1 update
    The parking along this stretch of road is extremely dangerous for bicycles. It should be parallel parking - the angle parking is very bad idea. The angle of the parking is facing the wrong way, so anyone backing out of a park cannot see oncoming traffic until the car is mostly out of the parking space and blocking the roadway. This is most dangerous for bicycles travelling east, but also a hazard for other traffic. The angle parking also narrows the road considerably, forcing bicycles into close proximity with the heavy car traffic along this stretch.
  • Liverpool St Cashel St Intersection urgently needs a Give Way sign1 update
    Liverpool St Cashel St Intersection urgently needs a Give Way sign due to the massively increased traffic after the earthquake. Few people understand the give way rules for an intersection with no give way or stop signs. This intersection is extremely dangerous for bicycles travelling east along Cashel and turning right into Liverpool.
  • Pedestrain crossing button not working
    The button for the new pedestrian crossing near Stanmore New World (the one on the east side) doesn't seem to be working ... You can push it several times without anything happening.
  • Teees need trimming along length of cycle path
    The trees along the length of the cycle path from Annex road to Wrights Road need trimming. Foliage is causing me and other cyclists to duck and veer around them
  • Road
    Patch of Missing Road. Makes my car slip. Got stones in my hand.
