on Wairere Rd - on the right past Mildon, the gutters on the left are too small and are not cleared, the road contour leans to the right (towards my land). Part of the side of the road has an enormous crack - about 3 metres long. 1 metre wide. That part, and a lot more with visible cracks is going to cause a landslide down the hill, destroying native bush/trees and potentially kill someone, or dump the hill on my house. Further down towards Mildon - on the same side (again bordering my land) a power pole is leaning, again land subsidence caused this - due to above reasons (all my land is being saturated and looking to subside - knocking down bush, landing on people, animals & buildings). That pole will go - falling down onto my land/bush & cottage below it. It will also knock out power to some 60 other properties. My land is in the foothills of Waitakere Ranges, 15 Mildon Rd - the bush is supposed to be protected by me - let alone council. Either they change the contour of the road or make huge drainage to cope with lots of rain we get here, put in retaining walls, or in sections at a time of that road is going to subside - slipping down hill and clearing native trees & bush with it. Real danger to my home, family also. Previous attempt to divert the water - tiny little tar bump is clearly not working, and small uncleared gutter on other side is completely inadequate - and now a slip in many places looks imminent. Think this problem is council, road transport, vector, gutter maintenance. Lot more cost effective to properly fix now, and overt further expense, risk to bush, people and animals. Problem spans at least 500 metres in length
