Old fixed

  • Street name sign missing1 update
    Hi, Please note that street name sign of Earlswood Avenue was gone missing. Pl put new sign asap. Thanks
  • street sign missing2 update
    The street sign for Minogue Drive is missing from the post on the corner of Garnett Ave and Minogue Drive.
  • Blown Light1 update
    I reported a Street Light outside #18 Minnie Place flicking on and off a few weeks ago ! Now that light has blown and the end of our Cul-de-sac is very dark at night .
  • Roundabout tiles breaking up1 update
    The new roundabout has red brick tiles to mark a sort of pedestrian crossing. A few bricks have broken out closest to the curb. Probably a simple fix if attended to early.
  • Sweep required: glass/gravel in roundabout shoulders1 update
    This roundabout needs sweeping, particularly in the shoulders where debris accumulates. This is where cyclists ought to ride, but they are being pushed into the traffic lanes due to the glass and debris.
  • Footpath lifted1 update
    The footpath along Radiata street has lifted badly and I have tripped several times. One day I fell.
  • Pot hole in Coleridge Drive1 update
    There is a pothole about opposite 34 Coleridge Drive, Enderley, Hamilton. It was small but with the last frost, it is getting bigger. It would be nice (and cheaper!) to fix it before it grows any more. Thanks
  • Cover removed1 update
    While riding to work this morning, I noticed that a cover had been removed from a street light and some of the wires were hanging out. This is possibly hazardous. The cover is still there.
  • Seal breadking up and pothole forming1 update
    Hello The tar seal has broken and a moderate pothole is forming outside number 7 Bretton Tce.
  • Pot hole forming from car acceleration out of Dey St.1 update
    Dey St/Naylor St/ Cambridge Road. A pot hole is forming on the south side of the intersection. The median barrier means right turning cars and trucks always accelerate over same tar seal. Scraping the surface and hot mix may be enough to stop it deterioating.
  • Pot on median1 update
    There is the beginnings of a pothole forming on Cambridge Road in the median strip opposite Prescott Road. This is a minor hazard for cyclists attempting to make a right turn into Bretton Tce - especially because, as a cyclist signalling a right turn, you have only one hand on the handle bars.

  • Trucks engine brake
    Hi, I wonder if it is at all possible to place a "no engine brake" sign on Cambridge Rd. Now that the truck traffic has increased in our area (due to the Wairere Cobham intersection that is on hold), the noise is very very disturbing. Sometimes my pre-school daughter even burst out in tears from fright. I also just want to thank you for placing a "your speed" sign on Cambridge Rd. Hoping this will improve the speed issues a bit.
  • Flax plants too tall1 update
    The flax in the Garnett - Minogue round-about is too high. It is impossible for people crossing the road to see cars turning through the round-about.
  • More Like Arthur Pothole Drive
    Several potholes all the way down Arthur Porter Drive. Have been there a while
  • KAIMIRO STREET, TE RAPA
    THIRD TIME LUCKY? AGAIN, THERE IS NO WAY CARS SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO PARK ON BOTH SIDES OF THE ROAD ON KAIMIRO. IT IS NOT WIDE ENOUGH FOR THE TYPES OF TRAFFIC GOING THROUGH. WE HAVE LARGE TRUCKS AND CONTAINER VEHICLES. IT IS RIDICULOUS, YOU HAVE TO PULL OVER EVERY TIME THERE IS ONCOMING TRAFFIC. IT IS THE SAME WITH THE BOULEVARD. WHOEVER IS SAYING THE ROAD IS WIDE ENOUGH HAS NO IDEA I'M SORRY. MAYBE ASK THE PEOPLE THAT USE THESE ROADS ON A DAILY BASIS. THE CONSENSUS WILL AGREE, ITS DANGEROUS HOW IT IS. TODAY A TRUCK GOT STUCK AND BLOCKED THE ROAD FOR OVER AN HOUR. IF THERE IS NO ISSUE, AS YOU SAY THE ROAD IS WIDE ENOUGH, THEN WHY DID THE TRUCK GET STUCK? THEY HAD TO GET SEVERAL PARKED CARDS TO MOVE TO GET IT OUT. IF THE BOULEVARD IS WIDE ENOUGH, WHY IS ATTWOODS MOVING BECAUSE THEY CANT DEAL WITH IT ANYMORE? THIS IS A BIG ISSUE. PLEASE DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT BEFORE THERE IS A MAJOR ACCIDENT.
  • Overgrown trees - Melville Reserve
    There are a number of trees in the SW corner of this park which have become overgrown. They hang over the boundary fence to the Bader St shops. They block visibility that the shops and also create a dangerous hiding place for undesirables thereby creating a danger to parkers, pedestrians and shoppers. The trees need to be cut back and possibly some removed.
  • Street Light not working
    Hi HCC, since last two - three days I noticed that street lights of Earlswood Avenue is not working. Pl resolve this problem ASAP.
  • Numerous Potholes along the road
    There are numerous potholes along 245 and 241 Kahikatea Drive, Frankton, Hamilton 3204
  • Dropped fruit from ginkgo trees
    Fruit covering parts of the footpath, causing pedestrian to walk out on the road to avoid the mess and the bad smell
  • The Road is Breaking apart
    Hey there live down Pohutukawa Drive and down our little road (which is off the main street but still part of Pohutukawa Drive) there are a couple pot holes and at the end the road begun to break apart and is continuing to get worse. Was wondering who we call to get it fixed?
  • Street light not working
    Street light not working making it near impossible to see people walking on footpath when backing out of drive way, have had a few near misses. Scared that one evening I may hurt someone.
  • Glass bottles and boxes
    Whole corner is littered with rubbish and there is glass on the footpath/road
  • Cars parking on yellow lines
    Hi, Over the past few weeks I have noticed more and more cars parking along Clarkin Road, which is yellow lines along the left hand side. It's beginning to get annoying because when we turn out of our lane (which is very busy-10 houses plus builders,)we cannot turn left until the traffic driving on the other side of the road has passed (as we have to go onto the opposite side of the road to pass the vehicles parked on the road.) Also, St Josephs school (and Dio) is located approx. 20 metres down the road, so the road can be very busy at times. In fact, it already is a busy road. The reason I think people are parking on this side of the road is because the yellow lines are super faded in some areas. It would be greatly appreciated if the council could re-paint the yellow lines along the road so people would stop parking there. Thanks.
  • Deep and Bad Old pothole Walter street
    Please fix the Pothole in Walter street. I visit my client there. I am on a minimum wage and can't afford to keep redoing my wheel alignment. I'm fed up with it. IT'S BEEN THERE SINCE SEPTEMBER LAST YEAR!
  • Street Lighting not working down this lane
    People are using it to leave rubbish as none of the lights are working.
  • Missing asphalt on sidewalk
    Outside 43 King St, Frankton. Loose gravel on sidewalk, creates tripping hazard
  • 2 block section of street lights not working
    st. lights from kakatea DRive to normadryreet st roundabout not working. this is main higjway in to hamilton and road in this section is pitch black as not lights on street working been like this since 22nd of jan 2017.
  • Blown Bulb
    Street Light Bulb needs replacing as is blown. 48a Garland Drive, St Andrews.
  • Light not working
    Been out for a few days/nights
  • Dangerous trees
    There are some, possibly Poplar trees, close to and leaning precariously over Hukanui road, I fear that a strong wind could well tip them over onto the street / footpath.
  • Excessive speed and use of engine brakes by trucks
    I live on Forest Lake road towards the bottom of a hill. I have concerns regarding excessive speed by motorists. The speed limit is 50km but quite frequently cars are travelling well above that. Also trucks are using engine brakes when travelling down the hill. The noise is very annoying! It would be great to see a bigger police presence on the road catching these people!
  • Footpath lane overgrown
    Hi there, I live on Forest Lake Road. The footpath up the road from me (at approx 41 forest lake road) is overgrown making access difficult. The footpath is a located between a steel road barrier and bushes. Therefore there is no grass verge to walk on to get past the bushes.
  • Potholes on The Boulevard
    There are several potholes/cracks all up and down the Boulevard. You can see where several have already been fixed but more keep forming. Also, allowing cars to park on both sides of the road is a joke. I have reported this issue before and I was told the road is wide enough. Come and watch the traffic travel up and down this road for a day and tell me with a straight face the road is wide enough. It is the same with Kaimiro Street. Industrial areas have large trucks passing through daily. When cars and trucks have to pull over to let trucks through, how can the road be wide enough for two trucks to pass?
  • Light is out
    Please fix, it's the one in the alleyway between houses 24 & 26, thanks
  • Street light not working1 update
    The street light outside 66 Awatere ave isn't working
  • Pothole
    There is a deep pothole on Hare Puke Drive, just past the sign for Meadowfield Street, Flagstaff, Hamilton.
  • Pothole in middle of street
    Pothole is getting bigger by the day.
  • Street Light turning on and off1 update
    The street light closest to our house is flicking on and off approx every ten seconds. It will stay on for a few seconds then turn off again, please fix it soon! It's rather scary at night when walking along the street.
  • Cars Parked in Cycle lane
    Residents cars parked in cycle lane early morning and at afternoon rush hour
  • Faulty street light
    The Street light along Manuka Street (close to 23 and 25) keeps going off and then comes back on. This issue has happened for the last few years
  • YELLOW LINES
    The cars parking on both sides of the Boulevard and too close to the intersections is a real problem. Large trucks barely have any room and it is impossible to pull of of the adjoining roads because the cars block your view. Parking needs to be restricted to one side of the road only. Don't wait until someone has a crash to do anything about it please!
  • Road/ Carparks
    Recently white parking lines were painted along both sides of The Boulevard, this has caused major issues as this street constantly has trucks driving up and down it. When there are cars on both sides of the road there isn't enough room for 2 trucks to drive past each other meaning 1 truck is always forced to stop. Also due to people parking over the white parking lines our trucks quite often get stuck trying to leave our driveway, they don't have enough to room to turn due to cars being parked on both sides of the road and not being in the lines. We have had traffic held up for several minutes as the truck has become stuck because there isn't enough room for them to turn with a trailer on.
  • car parts, realty sign, etc
    Where The Link turns into a gravel road, parts of a car body, real estate sign and other things have been dumped by the road side.
  • old tires dumped
    At the end of Bourn Brook Ave, where you have to turn right into the road leading to the new High School, a number of old tires have been dumped in the last few weeks.
  • bags, furniture, tires, etc dumped
    the entrance to the paddock, across the road from the farm gate, on the side of the maize field, rubbish has been dumped over the last few months. Looks like concrete bags, black sacks, decrepit furniture, etc.
  • Pothole or divet on railway crossing
    When driving over the railway tracks away from the hospital there is a very uncomfortable hole or divet that is not visable. When hit it really shakes the car and feels like damage has been done to the car. I got a flat tire from hitting it. It is in the normal tire path. So if you can remember you have to swerve to miss it.
  • Hazardous footpath
    1) The power company trenched a cable thru the footpath and have not returned to seal it. The trench is rough for kids, prams, scooters etc using the footpath. The sealed footpath needs fixed urgently 2) The grass berm was dug up as well. No one has come back to topsoil and sow grass seed. Weeds are now coming thru and will always be unsightly if not fixed properly
  • Street Light not working
    Street light across the road from our house not working. Lighting at this end of the street is already very poor - without this light even worse
  • Car Yard parking vehicles for sale on main street
    When leaving Northway St it is impossible to see both double lanes as the Korean Car yard paks large vans and cars on Te Rapa straight. They sometimes put flags on the street as well. They also park cars etc all over footpaths both sides of Northway corner. Te Rapa st should have yellow no parking lines and they should be ticketed for illegal parking on the footpaths. I have spoken to them twice - their comment is unprintable.
  • Street lights not working
    Hi HCC, the street lighting on all of Sandowne Close, and the surrounding part of Farringdon Ave next to Sandowne Close is currently not working. On Wednesday 2 Sept digging was started for ultra fast broadband cabling, and I am wondering if perhaps a cable was cut accidentally? I don't know how long the street lights have been out for, but suspect that maybe this may be the reason. It would really be appreciated if it could be checked out ASAP as it is extremely dark. Many thanks, Tania
  • Timing of pedestrian crossing Te Rapa Rd and Vardon Rd (lights 4044)
    When crossing Te Rapa Rd from Spotlight to Vardon Rd (on lights 4044) from light 11 to light 9, the green light does not leave enough time for the pedestrian to complete the crossing safely. Twice this week a car turning left from Vardon Rd to Te Rapa Rd has come close to hitting people on the crossing.
  • Street Light not working1 update
    Can we have the street light across the road from our house fixed please. Thanks
  • Hillcrest High School pedestrian lights
    The lights (lamps nor the flashing orange) showing up the pedestrian crossing were off at 5:40 pm (dusk) when I drove past. A student was walking across wearing dark clothing and was very difficult to see. With onset of winter these lights need to come on way earlier.
  • Blocked Drain by 35 Queens Ave. Frankton
    Roadside / Blocked Drain by 35 Queens Ave. Frankton, Hamilton. Leaves, Sticks and rubbish blocking water way alongside road.
  • 2 street lights broken
    Two broken street lights: one on the bridge (Wairere Dr, between Hukanui and Resolution roundabout); the other shortly after that bridge, towards the Resolution Dr roundabout. Thanks for fixing!
  • Broken lights in underpass

    The pathway has potholes, uneven surface, at least one temporary repair, and is crumbling. I reported this recently and have not seen any response.
  • Street light not working
    2 street lights on the junction of Carrington Avenue and Orelio Street not working. More street lights not working further down the end of Carrington Avenue near Silverdale Road.
  • Pavement is crumbling
    Transfield have dug a hole outside No 22, adding to the poor condition of the pathway surface. It's time for a resurfacing around the cul-de-sac, please.
  • Speeding vehicles in residential area1 update
    I live in pukeko St, it is a shortcut for vehicles detouring off a state highway, and we have several primary schools in our neighbourhood. We have frequent speeding vehicles going down our street, we need a speed camera, police presence of a few judder bars to deter speeding vehicles
  • Blocked stormwater drain
    By driveway of 76a drain is completely covered over and full of rubbish
  • Red right turn arrow never goes off to allow cyclist to legally turn.1 update
    The traffic sensors on this intersection are not sufficiently sensitive to pick up a bicycle in the right turn bay. In the present configuration the right turning red light remains lit, never allowing a cyclist to progress unless a car comes up close behind and onto the sensor. Can these sensors be made more sensitive, or can the red arrow be switched off when no traffic is detected in the right turn bay, or provide a green arrow regardless of whether a vehicle is detected. The second option is probably the best since the traffice is usually light enough for a cyclist to get across with the normal give way rules.
  • Pothole on Amanda Ave before driveway entrance
    There is a pothole on the road near the driveway of 55 Amanda Ave, Dinsdale, Hamilton. It is growing in size and cars dip into this pothole when driving into the driveway. Can you please fix to avoid any damage to the cars. Many thanks.

    Please could you fix the street light outside 22 Winchester Place as soon as possible, thanks
  • Trees
    Hi, the trees in our street all need re-tying to the stakes, preferably before one snaps in the wind. One of the trees needs new stakes as well, as they broke and were then removed. That tree is particularly vulnerable at the moment. thanks

    Hi, please could you fix the light between number 28 & 30 Winchester Place, thanks

  • Blocked Drain with leaves/pine needles and rubbish

  • Potholes needing repair1 update
    Hi there, I live down a long shared driveway which services eight properties (9 - 19 Storey Ave). There is currently a large pothole in the asphalt. It can be avoided but would be very dangerous if a cyclist ran into it. Can this pleased be repaired? Thanks, Rachel

  • Yellow lines needed to maintain street access1 update
    Tuirangi Street narrows between the roundabout and the Claymore Street end, and has an island dividing the road. When two cars are parked opposite each other there is only room for one car to pass through. However when these cars also park between the first houses' driveway and the roundabout, it becomes difficult, sometimes impossible to enter Tuirangi street (see photos). Today the car in the photo has been parked here all day. A small car can get through but requires careful steering; a large car has its wheels up against or on the island curb. It is about to become worse, as many people park here when using Discovery Park during winter sports. Often there are two cars parked between the first driveways and the roundabout (on both sides), so we cannot enter the street without driving over the island, or driving illegally on the wrong side if it is free. On some occasions we have to find a park for our cars and walk home. Could you please put yellow line markers between the first driveways and the roundabout to stop people parking here. Thank you.
  • Street Light Out1 update
    Street Light between 8 and 10 Killegray Close, Flagstaff Hamilton is not going. Noticed 13 March 2013 9:30 pm
  • Limited Visibility from oncoming traffic via Lake Rd onto Queens Avenue
    There is limited visibility of oncoming traffic via Lake Rd onto Queens Avenue, particularly as the road bends at the entry of Upper Kent Street. The proprieties at 33, 33B and 25A Queens Avenue has limited visibility of oncoming traffic when exiting drive-ways left and right - from oncoming traffic from Lake Road. The traffic visibility would be significantly improved with the installation of a convex mirror opposite the stated property addresses; on the street pole on the corner (entry of) Upper Kent St and the bend in the road of Queens Avenue. Other suggestions would be to install speed limit signs (i.e. "50" speed limit) to reduce the traffic speed of oncoming traffic from Lake Road around the bend of Queens Avenue.
  • Street light2 update
    Street light across the road from our house not working. Our end of the street was already very dark - now you can't see anything! Thanks.
  • Broken Glass
    Claudelands Rd, eastern end of Waikato River Bridge, needs a street sweep to remove broken beer bottle glass (3? bottles smashed) am 9 Oct 2012 Gave me a bike tyre puncture. I threw one whole beer bottle off the road into the side verge.
  • Lights above footpath not working

  • Deep long pot holes
    Western side of Claudelands Bridge, Hamilton, travelling west existing the Bridge on Western side. Where traffic exits Hotel, deep long gouged? potholes need filling and resealing. Have not looked at this for a few days(9/2/11), but problem existed for several months already.
  • Pothole in the middle of culdesac
    The pothole is pretty easy to spot. It is right in the middle of the end of the culdesac outside our house. It's been there for as long as we've been here (About 5 years). On a slightly related note, the footpath outside our house and our neighbours is starting to break up.
  • Rise in the footpath
    Uneven footpath (concrete 2 different levels)surface causing tripping when walking outside 16 caernavan street
  • Line Marking
    The new line marking makes it very dangerous for cyclists. The old marking explicitly kept the cars away from the bikes (see current Google image)
