Recently fixed

  • No issues.

Old fixed

  • Speeding1 update
    Churcher St is a long wide residential street that boarders a high school. Vehicles have a habit of speeding in excess of the required 50km/h down this street causing a safety risk to themselves, students, residents and their animals. Is there something to be done about the excess speeding of the cars? Lower speed limit? (I note there are no signs to reduce speed to 30km/h due to a school being present), speed bumps?
  • Rubbish Discarded2 update
    There has been rubbish dumped on the little access way to the water by the bridge. It has been there for 3 days at least. Looks disgusting.
  • Windbreak around the Himatangi Recycling centre1 update
    A great deal of paper and plastic rubbish gets blown inland from the Recycling Container on Koputara. This accumailates in the kids playground and up wind of that.This results in a lot of litter - which the broken window theory tells us - results in people leaving more litter. Installation of wind break netting to the East (upwind from the prevaling direction ) and the west against the tennis court, while leaving the front access unaltered, would be a low cost option to reduce the dispersion of windblown material from the recuycling centre.
  • Sandown Av Himatangi1 update
    Residents of Sandown Av are very concerned about the following issues that are happening on the undeveloped part of the subdivision at Sandown Park. 1.Town Water is being used to fill troughs for stock that are grazing. This system has leaks and has running water. It is connected to a blue house water toby. 2. Dumping rubbish and green waste is attracting rats and mice. This is also not helped by the dropping from the stock. 3. Sewage. recently the owner was served an abatement(Horizon) notice after discharging sewage for 3 years . We are very concerned about contamination in the area and the smell at times. We would like to see the area tested and cleared. 4. Stock. 20 head of beef and 3 horses is this allowed on residential land. Attracting rats mice fly's and smell. 5. Two Water ponds are not fenced and pose a real risk for children who do go onto this land as kids do. These issues have been identified by the 4 residents in the subdivision and I am the point of contact. The Land is own by Murray Hastie. Sandown Trust.
  • One of Fielding Flag by Locomobile boad missing1 update
    Hello, I'm Jun, a cyclist who passed by Fielding. I couldn't remember the exact spot, but the location is between the Aorangi street and East street rougly speaking. There is Locomobile board on the grassfield by the street, representing Fielding and welcoming visitors. There are two flags with "FIELDING" letters by the locomobile board. Indeed, it is a sheer pleasure to see the board and the flags of the town, as a visitor. Firstly, I wanna thank you to who installed such an interesting board and flags. But I found yesterday one of the flags missing. I think the missing flag should substituted as soon as possible. I hope this report can be helpful info to fix it and bring the pleasure back to any fielding visitors.

  • Rubbish at Timona Park1 update
    Yesterday evening when I was walking in Timona Park from the Simon Street entrance the rubbish bins were overfull and there was a lot of rubbish near the childrens playground.

  • long grass on roadside1 update
    Overgrown grass on road side needs urgent mowing as there is no way to see oncoming traffic.
  • Speed Bump needed1 update
    Because bumps were put on York Street which slowed boy racer cars down. They come fast down prince Street i would suggest they put a speed bump on the street or monitor it at night time. As the skids show its happening often.
  • Overgrown road edges1 update
    Edges were not cut from London Street on. They are now overgrown and a traffic hazard on a blind corner near the upper end.

  • Noise Nuisance1 update
    This property plays loud music almost daily to the point where loud bass boom boom boom can be heard as late at 11pm on the weekends and ten pm during the week. While the timing is not bad the continuous boom boom boom of bass invading our home, overshadowing our own tv is UNACCAPTABLE!
  • Drain erosion & bridge footing1 update
    Stock barrier across drain has become clogged and has diverted the flow into the bank. Significant incutting and collapse of bank. Not yet serious but now it has started it will continue to erode toward the bridge footings. Location is the bridge outside of 591 Lockwood Road.
  • Mowing roadside edge and spraying drains1 update
    Is it possible to have the roadside edges along Nannestads Line tractor-mowed? The drains are also in need of a spray as there are grass and weeds taking hold currently. As the grass on the berm is quite high (over 50cm in some parts) and on steep angles due to the drain, it is very difficult to mow.
  • Water toby - 8 Himatangi Street, Himatangi Beach1 update
    We cannot find our water toby near the public footpath outside our property at 8 Himatangi Street, Himatangi Beach
  • River1 update
    River has a large amount of scum caught up on the rocks + more has already floated down the river in the last few days. This is a shame as the river was tidied up just recently & looked really good. I live at 75 Derby street & the scum can be seen from our garden which is not the issue. The issue is that it s a shame to see this sort of thing happening in a nice clean town like Feilding.
  • Trees and weeds in the West Street Drain, Feilding1 update
    On several occasions I have reported that there are a number of hanging branches and a few dead trees outside on the boundary reserves of the West St drain. This is the drain reserve and the private property side. (Not the street reserve) There are weeds growing within the drain itself. What is the maintenance programme for the clearance and spraying of weeds with the drain itself. It would be greatly appreciated if the self seeded elms would be trimmed or pruned and for the weeds to be cleared. I have phoned the Council on three separate occasions and to-date there has been no action. Thank you for your assistance.

  • No Blue MDC Rubbish Bags in supermarkets1 update
    Rubbish left opposite Hiwinui School in black or green bags. However, there aren't currently Blue MDC bags in Palmy or Feilding Supermarkets and haven't been for 2 weeks (Feilding and Kelvin Grove Countdowns). What are you supposed to do if bags aren't available to buy?!
  • Clogged Drains1 update
    The north side drains along cemerty road leading up to Hedges STreet are in need to clearing Before Winter to avoid either stagnation of water outside the properties an/or flooding
  • Insufficient Recycling Service - Sanson1 update
    The recycling in Sanson has never been able to cope with the amount of recycling disposed. Since changes were made to the contractors late last year it is worse than ever. Today (Monday) the bins are over flowing with recycling outside of the bins. Can you please organise a larger receptacle or more frequent collections? It would be good for residents of Sanson to have road side collections as recently introduced to Feilding.
  • Dumped Rubbish 1 update
    There has been rubbish dumped at this site for over two rubbish collection weeks. While its not in council bags but rather normal black rubbish bags the rubbish collectors refuse to pick it up and now the number of bags left continues to grow. Can this please be removed as soon as possible. It would be best if the collectors still picked this up to avoid repeat issues of this.
  • fence1 update
    we live at 75 Derby St. & would like to report that part of the fence at the end of our fence has been kicked in.it could be dangerous for any small child if they went to close to it as it is very steep and they could end up on the stones below, it is also very unsightly.
  • Give way signs at the corner of Fagan and Hedges Street, Sanson2 update
    I am writing on behalf of my parents, Ian and Glenys Mclaughlan, there is a serious safety concern for the neighbourhood with local residents with motor vehicles ignoring the fact that there are give way signs on the corner of Fagan and Hedges Street. My parents have been to the local traffic control people to report the issue who assured them they would speak to the residents concerned. It has had no impact. Unfortunately I cannot tell you who the residents are, however it seems to me that the only thing that will slow the culprits down are speed humps leading up to the Give way signs. The concern is there are a number of elderly folk, young people on bikes and numerous pets who roam around that are vulnerable to this risk. Your consideration to this idea would be appreciated.
  • Lack of Rubbish collection1 update
    There are a large number of rubbish bags on the roadside in the Pohangina Valley which have been there for 24hrs. It appears Council has changed the collection day from Thursday to Monday. In my case there has been no prior notification of this change and given the large number of bags on the roadside I would say that a lot of other people did not receive notification My main concern is whow the Council will inform residenst of teh change and how much of the rubbish will remain on the roadside til Monday
  • over grown grass1 update
    the grass on the left hand side of awahuri road going out of town just passed the bridge by boness road is so long it is blocking the vision for cars coming out of boness road. it needs to be fixed asap as it is going to cause a accident.
  • Cow fouling and stray1 update
    Almost every morning there are cattle up and down the road unattended. Also the mess and heavily machinery on the road has resulted in degradation of the road surface and large pot holes. The width of the road has also been reduced to a single lane at this point because of the cow poo/mud etc. Anyone using this road has to dodge the cows, negotiate passed the mess, squeeze past any on coming vehicles(some very big trucks who drive fast and dont stop for anyone), and slip through the pot holes(the latter for the many people going to the local marae). And the mess on the road after a little rain gets so thick that normal cars loose traction, and slide over the road.
  • Trench compaction/degrading1 update
    Hi, three quarters of the way up Haggit street there is an existing trench running accross the road that has been excavated to access services obviously the trench has been poorly backfilled causing a bad hole/depression in the road. I am concearned for road users (particularly cyclists) in general on this street as this problem seems to be getting worse over the 2 - 3 months i have been observing it.
  • Unsafe playground2 update
    It's a small childrens playground, its situated on a slope and is dangerous for children when using the slide, the end is to far off the ground and the 2 swings are to high off the ground.
  • No street lighting8 update
    No street lighting working on Trewin and Keith Elliott street.
  • Dangerous uneven road1 update
    This road from Bainesse school, to Kellow road is shocking, It sends a 4x4 rolling all over the road at 100kms so i would hate to think how the trucks get on at 90kms. This needs to be address and fixed before some boy racer ends up airborne It needs to have a speed reduction put on it until it is fixed
  • rubbish dumping1 update
    old fridge and various rubbish , regular dump here untill vehicle access is blocked
  • grazing on road verges and 2 update
    cattle grazed on road verge and around stream . mud over road and access to verge not possible , so its unsafe to walk dog on road in dark or bike on road through mud . same farmer leaves mess on rise of rigde road from movement of tractor without tidying at any point also making cycling dangerous and difficult . the roads are a shared space and if one makes a mess on a road the thing to do is to clean up , not leave it to build up . grazing road verges by cattle is destructive and a user pays activity .

    The vegetation from this property has almost completely covered up the footpath making it very difficult to pass.

New issues

  • Street Light not working
    Street light outside 4 Phillips St has not been working for approx 1 week.
  • Fire Hydrants
    As part of the recent water main replacement works, the original water hydrants were removed but the road markings still point to them. There appear to be new hydrants on the opposite side of the road but these have been buried under road chips. In the event of a fire they would be very difficult to find. Please could they be marked as a matter of urgency? Thanks
  • Blocked Drains
    The road drain is blocked with rubbish (tyres & car parts) and has been for some time. As a result this prevents the water from flowing properly. The water dams up and floods approximately 100 metres back up our and our neighbouring drive ways which prevents access to our properties.
  • Trees shading road
    Very large pine trees are shading road and causing section of road to be icy on cold morning. The tree are now overhanging the road itself. Potential hazard to road users and to power lines on other side pf road if trees fall (as one has recently).
  • Pot Holes not fully repaired - Root St East
    We have waited for over 6 Months to get several pot holes fixed from a submission in November 2016! Some 2-3 Months ago they came and painted white paint around each hole. Last week they finally came to fix the pot holes but they only repaired one and missed several others - the ones on the entrance to 101 Roots St East and outside 107 Roots St East have NOT been repaired. There is another new one forming just west of 95 Roots St East also.
  • Street lights not working
    The street lights around Anderson Street and other nearby streets in Palmerston North have not been working for the last few days.

Older issues

  • street light is out

  • 85 Hedges Street, Sanson Job Number #39107
    HI I recently purchased 85 Hedges Street and have noticed that there is constant flooding and Surface water coming on to our property and our fence posts and most of the pailings are constantly under water due to either a broken or blocked Pipe. I rung the council a month or so about this to get it sorted and nothing has happened this is now destroying my fence as they have been under water and the front of my property is constantly wet from this which is causing Damage. The damage starts from The long driveway next to my property on Acourt and goes across the front of my property and is completely un mow able. This needs to be fixed as soon as possible as the fence is now badly damaged and the front of my property is also getting damaged. Another concern is the open Drain at the side of 83 Hedges street you cannot see any opening for water to go through plus there is old rubbish laptops in there it is on Council land it is the councils Responibility. I have photo's of the surface water which I take daily/weekly, some of the photo's have been taken on weeks where we had no rain yet still doesn't go down. This needs to be sorted immediatly!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Over grown and broken driveway from road to footpath
    The driveway from the road to the footpath is now over grown by grass. So at night it is very hard to fix. It is also so broken up it needs to be replaced
  • Majority deterioration of local river mouth
    Everyone on our street use the small river & surrounding area walking our dogs & ponies esp on a hot day - usually reasonably pleasant (even though we all comment on how much nicer it could be without all the rubbish & big chunks of concretr(??!!) oddly placed here? Recently (past 4weeks) it has become so overgrown (1metre) that u can't see your footing as it's now dangerous-in fact we skipped & twisted an ankle & my daughter cut herself. What has happened to this area is like to know please?? Thanks Natalie
  • Flooding
    we have lots of flooding issues in the last years.... and promised often that drain will be cleared... but that never happens on time causing again for our property to flood...again!!!!!
  • ?Water leak near 30 Ranfurly Road for several months
    Water constantly running across Tiritoa Terrace for several months, not sure where it is leaking from.

  • Squeeky playground equipment
    The lullaby swing at Timona park needs oiling. Very noisy. Thanks
  • Disgusting state of public toilet
    The public toilet located in the reserve area off Kina Street is in an absolutely disgusting state. It is the only visible and available public toilet in Tangimoana. It is a long drop that does not appear to have ever been serviced. The content is almost full and it is not a proper bio toilet with no apparent treatment having been applied. We believe there is a distinct health hazard and given there are many visitors to Tangimoana this solitary toilet is completely unacceptable and something needs to be done under urgency. We are considering if this requires some reporting to health authorities. Other residents have also expressed their concerns and visitors who will not use the public toilet due to it's disgusting state then seek assistance at the local store which then has its own flow on effect with the owners septic tank filling up sooner than is normal. The council needs to do something urgently please.
  • Raised Storm water drain
    Hi, we have just purchased a property in Macmillan place and there is a storm water cover right in the centre of our driveway in the footpath. The problem being that it is very raised and has started damaging my car when I use my driveway. Please look at this and let me know what you can do to fix it please. (6 Macmillan place)

  • Fire Hydrant cover not marked/Painted
    There is no road marking for the Fire Hydrant on Mahi Grove (off port st east). It is located just past the driveway to houses 3 and 5. This makes it difficult for the crew to find, and would be near impossible in the dark.
  • Glass across road & cycle path

  • Trucks blocking vision and road
    The upper end of Keith Street is regularly all but impassable due to large truck and trailer units parking on both sides of the street, awaiting entrance to the pallet depot. They not only park along the roadside completely obscuring vision for any resident who wishes to leave their driveway (including my wife this morning who almost hit a cyclist as she could see nothing past our driveway other than the large truck and trailer completely blocking her vision), but regularly park their vehicles over driveways, completely blocking access to and from the residence!
  • One street light out of action
    Street light outside 51 Weld Street, Feilding has not been working since 20th November 2016.

  • loose stones and pitting road surface
    Loose stones and pitting of road surface at South Street, Awahuri Street, Coronation Street and West street intersection. Evidence of recent crash on road. It is a dangerous intersection that might be better as a roundabout.
  • Council berm
    The owners of #20 Sandown Ave Mr Swanson and Mrs Hunt have erected barrer posts on and around the council berm. This very dangerous should vehicles need to take evasive action. Cyclists may need to pull over to the berm and with this election persons may well come to harm.Persons running at night will not see these. Totally Dangerous.

  • Pot hole
    This pot hole is getting larger, and it will cause damage to vehicles travelling over it quickly. It also makes it difficult to get in/out of the driveway.
  • Dangerous intersection Layout
    The Intersection at South Street, Awahuri road, West Street and Coronation street is confusing for drivers. On Monday I saw an elderly man drive straight through from West street to Awahuri and almost hit the driver exiting South Street to West street who had right of way. Yesterday morning a woman driver drove straight through from West Street to Awahuri and almost hit the driver from Coronation street entering South street who was coming from her right and therefore had right of way. Because of the bend in South Street to Awahuri street people are confused and are not obeying the road rules. Over the previous year there has been a number of crashes here. this would be better as a small roundabout which the people of Feilding at least understand.
  • Roadside trees growing into power lines
    All along Nelson Street, Feilding, the roadside trees are growing right through the power lines and some a considerable distance above. I am concerned that in a decent wind or storm they pose a danger to either cut off power or bring the lines down.
  • Trashing of Mature Kahitakea rootsystem for 'car park'
    MDC contractors organised by Steve Belski have trashed the root system of a very mature Kahikatea on our land. This was during the installation of a car park on the paper road leading to Rangiwahia Reserve. We were given no notice of this work happening, as local landowners, nor can I see any approval by the Rangiwahia community for this car in any community meeting minutes. I am also still awaiting contact from MDC re an issue i lodged in early June. Having visited the MDC offices in early August and been told someone would be in contact - i am still waiting.

  • loose gravel on road from flooding or roadworks.
    Skidding hazard for vehicles at intersection and also hazard to pedestrians crossing to shops and school children at bus stop. Needs immediate attention to prevent accident. Close to north street school.
  • Illusion of a passing lane but its not.
    Hi, I wish to notify you of an issue regarding road marking on West st, at Stonebridge Heights. I feel the road marking is wrongly set out, making it look like there is a passing lane here. There's two lanes for only 50 metres or so, on West st at the intersection of Stonebridge Heights. We live overlooking this intersection where West st narrows off and becomes one lane before going around the bend, and have seen many times people think its a passing lane and theres two vehicles going around the corner heading towards Halcombe, but its one lane. People are also excessively speeding here as they think its a passing area before it actually gets to the passing area. I feel there should not be broken white lines here, and that there should only be a turning bay box for traffic heading into Stonebridge Heights only, and not two lanes. We feel its very dangerous, my neighbour also agrees. It would be great if you could come have a look and review the terrible road marking here. Kind regards Kirstie Lake
  • Walking the perimetre of Timona Park
    I walk this route daily and have noted that the grass on all the perimeter of the park near the houses and through the Azalea Garden is significantly longer than that on the park.This results in the grass being more difficult to walk on particularly when it is wet. I am requesting that this grass be cut shorter and more frequently.This will help the experience to be more pleasant and may encourage walkers and dog walkers to use the perimeter and not the playing fields.
  • Halcombe toilets tap
    The woman's toilet tap is very hard to turn on (its a push button type). Its very hard for a child to on let alone someone elderly. Its also aimed so it spills onto the floor. Can we get a normal tap put in or one easier to use. Thank you.

    consruction, leak fix, movement of water tap/valve to side location by council workers on driveway must have damaged or not been done properly pipes as there is a leak also left untidy mess and not finished properly.
  • Wasp nest and overgrown walkway
    At the entrance to the walkway to the beach there is a lot of wasps, stopping us using the walkway. The walkway is also getting very over grown and there are also some long bits of fencing wire sticking out of the sand near the beach end of the walkway.
  • Trees blocking footpath 32 and 80 Lethbridge street
    Trees are partially blocking footpath
  • Overhanging vegetation1 update
    On South St on the left hand side walking up to Kowhai Bridge - the vegetation comes out onto the footpath. It is quite a "dangerous" stretch of road and the footpath should not add to the risk because the vegetation is not trimmed well back. When walking on the footpath (towards Kimbolton Rd and town) you need to be able to keep as far left as practically possible.
  • Rubbish at Feilding lookout
    Most mornings I (and other conscientious Feilding residents) take their morning walk that includes the Feilding lookout. Most mornings this area has rubbish (mostly takeaway packaging and unused food) left around on the ground. A lot of the mornings the rubbish bin is fill to overflowing as well, and on occasions the wind has blown excess rubbish around. I accept (but struggle to understand) that rubbish is left on the ground on a regular basis. I would ask that the council consider putting in a larger (vandal proof) rubbish receptacle, so that when we pick up the rubbish we have somewhere to put it. A similar situation occurred in New Plymouth recently, and I gather the Council there have sourced some very good larger, vandal proof rubbish receptacles. Thank you.
  • Overgrown track
    The track from the river up to Waughs road by the bridge is getting overgrown. A jagged branch cut me on the hand today as I pushed through the weeds, blackberry and fennel. Could it be cut back here please
  • Overgrown verge
    The area along the railway on Waughs Road and Campbells Line is in desperate need of trimming. This is a concern to me as my house was threatened by fire last year.
  • overgrown track down to river path access from Waughs road
    From the river up to Waughs road by the bridge is getting a bit overgrown. Most of the river path is looking great and much enjoyed by runners and walkers, but when trying to find the way back up to Waughs road usually means a face full of wet grasses. Maybe they could be trimmed back?

  • Weed issues
    There is a weed which we suspect is called Solanum aviculare (poroporo) growing on the roadside of our boundary hedge and leaning over our section. We have spent the last few weeks removing small seedlings that have germinated in our section from previous years and we wish to have the multiple larger shrubs removed to prevent the further spread of seeds. It should be removed as soon as possible as it is has already flowered to prevent seed drop. We do not wish to do this ourselves as, if we have identified it correctly, this is a poisonous plant.
  • Long grass
    We are at 12 coulters line, kiwitea. When coming OUT of our gateway there is grass so long to the RIGHT that i can not see to pull out which is very dangerous.

  • Female door locks
    After visiting the ladies restroom today (11.30am), found that every stall in the women's toilet had damaged locks, not a single one could be locked. Very inconvenient with children in tow due to the school holidays. Not to mention 3 out of the 4 stalls had empty toilet paper holders.

  • Dick Road Kimbolton
    Today 22/6/15 at approx 5.00pm a truck came down Dick Road. I assume it was Higgins, looking at what needs clearing. I was at the Woolshed, 427 Dick Road, the truck turned around at 408 Dick Road, our cottage. As they turned there, they did not see the slip that is blocking the road up further. Higgins do not seem to think the road goes any further thank 408 Dick Road, but we live at 447 Dick Road. Could they please clear the road up to 447. Thank you.

  • Street Trees
    Some time ago, a couple of dead street trees were removed from the berm on the Owen Street frontage of our property.; are these street tress going to be replaced? I remember when Albert James worked for Council, he said that the trees would be replaced. When is this likely to happen?
  • Carcases dump at the Awahuri Oroua River Bridge
    Just to let you know there have been a pile of animal carcases dumped at the entrance to the Oroua river at the Awahuri bridge. Not sure how long they have been there but they are pretty high right now. I live across the road and noticed the smell yesterday and went to see what it was and found the pile. Easy to see. Just on the side of the road.
  • Street lights out

  • Stock on the road
    There is an issue with stock and a dog from a property at the corner of Green Road and Rongotea Road, getting out from the property onto the public road. This is a significant risk and danger to road users. Also to the saftey of children at the nearby Kopane School. It would appear the property owner is not taking the necessary/leag steps required to ensure the stock do not wander. I have witnessed 2 stack v vehicle incidents and several near mis, but there have been numerous more. What is the Council's position on this errant landowner?
  • Flooding causing road hazard

  • damaged and dangerous playground equipment
    At Manfield playground, the small playgound for younger children is in quite poor repair.Through the tunnel and before you step up to the big slide there are nails poking up that my son has stubbed his toes on. Alot of the decking all over the equipment is loose and bent. The tyre swing roundabout has been damaged since before Christmas, a tyre has been melted and it seems as though it should be easy to fix but has been unusuable for a long time.
  • Sherrards Road, Roading issues (dust, vision, health & Safety issues & speed)

  • Toilets at Campbell Street Entrance, Timona Park
    Hello Staff, I attend Dog Obedience at Timona Park. Tonight, 23rd February, I wished to use the toilets situated at the Campbell Street entrance to Tomona Park. I could not use any in that block as they were the filthiest, dirtiest toilets I have ever seen and are a real Public Safety Hazard. There is Faeces, Urine and Toilet Paper strewn all over the floors. An absolutely disgusting mess!!! May I suggest they are closed over the weekends or something is done to stop such a horrific mess being made inside them.

    Road edge subsiding where school bus picks up on northern side 134 cemetery road, sanson. This was reported by neighbour in September and is becoming dangerous if a motorist gets left too far. No repairs have been carried out yet
  • High risk intersection.
    I live on the corner of Coronation and Awahuri Rd, my husband and I often sit on the deck outside and witness many near misses by passing vehicles. Consequently last Thursday evening there was an accident on the corner of West Street, South Street and Awahuri Road. This intersection needs to be changed as its very dangerous and the near misses are many, to say the least. My friends and family that visit always comment on how confusing the layout is. Ideally a roundabout needs to be put in place however, trucks would not be able to get around. Many of us living around here believe that the Give Way sign on West Street leading onto Awahuri, needs to be a STOP sign. Also signs should be put up for vehicles going up Awahuri Street and turning either onto South Street or veering onto West Street should say "PLEASE INDICATE BOTH WAYS". Believe me, many dont indicate and the near misses we see is disturbing. Can you please advise what is to be done about this dangerous intersection. Thank you.
  • cowshed spray onto road
    Farmers with spray irrigation of cowshed runoff too close to roadside on Friday Jan 11th afternoon. I was sprayed on my motorbike when spray was picked up by wind, including on my visor, making vision difficult and dangerous.
  • overgrown access path to bridge by river
    (as of Saturday 10th Jan) only half of the track from Awa street to the bridge has been mowed. The section close to the bridge is almost impassable due to blackberry brambles, gorse, and long grass. Many dog walkers, runners, and cyclists like to use this track but it has become a bit dangerous and a fire risk.
  • Dangerous corner
    Hi this corner is dangerous, I have seen lots of near misses with cars and trucks at this intersection, I myself had a accident there Wednesday night on the free turn towards south street, when cars from west street didn t even wait and going straight thru the give way sign. lots of residents around there who helped me until emergency vehicles came really would like maybe around about to make it more controlled. Ahuriri Road,West Street and South, I know a lot of people get hesitate there and make bad moves, I hope this is the right area to send to too, To make community safer.
  • Over grown grass1 update
    I live on Mangapapa Road which is a part of the Northern Manawatu District Council. The grass on the side of the roads is in some places up to 2 metres tall and hanging over the road obstructing oncoming traffic and stock. Our road is only 3 kilometers long to the last house and only has 7 houses on it but we do pay our rates and would like it to be safe for us to drive on. Please come and mow our road....the corner of the side of the road by my house is a drop off of about 5 metres but you cannot tell because of the length of the grass. I would hate someone to go over that does not know it is there.

  • Access to residence blocked by concreting
    Yesterday the access to 10 Warwick Street was blocked and made extremely hazardous by unfinished paving work at the street entrance. It was completely impassible by car, trapping a vehicle inside, and dangerous to cross with no provision made for access to this residential address overnight. The concrete was also not signed as being unsuitable to walk on, but was soft underfoot.
  • Leaking fire hyrant
    A few weeks ago I noted the fire hydrant outside 8 Aotea Street, Feilding being tested. Since the test, and because of the dry weather, I have noted the hydrant now leaks continuously. (The map function associated with this did not work - kept flicking back to the CBD map)

    The yellow triangular sign you can see on the left of the satelitte map, a driver cannot see this sign from a distance approaching the Rongotea Road / Oroua Road intersection because there is too much green growth growing out stopping drivers seeing the sign. Regular boy racers and especially motorcycles hoon through this intersection at speed, better visibilty of this sign is needed to warn about the approaching intersection.
  • Fire Hydrant Leaking
    There is a fire hydrant outside 2 Cornish Place Feilding thatg has been leaking for a long time now. It seems to be slightly leaking out and flowing down the hill. It is continuous. This has happened once before, it was fixed but now is back again.
  • Obstructed vision at one lane bridge
    The sight lines at the approaches to the single lane bridge at the bottom of Awahou South Road are obstructed by vegetation. Approaching vehicles can't be seen from either end of the bridge approaches. At least one near-miss (school bus vs. car) has occurred.
  • Intersection upgrade
    this intersection can become dangerous when vehicles coming from Feilding way turn left into Watershed road. visibility is not clear so it is dangerous for a car following to past. a pull off lane for the vehicles turning into watershed road would reduce the risk. maybe you would like to look at the Kelvin Grove road corner as well. there are a number of vehicles that come out of Watershed road and turn into Kelvin Grove road in the morning and the other way around in the evening.
  • Ulysses Road dangerous
    Unsealed part of Ulysses Road is badly rutted and these are breaking down towards potholes. In addition there is a lot of loose surface stones at the Watershed Road end which is making driving dangerous even in 4WD off road vehicles.
