Taking a break...

FixMyStreet is going offline shortly, probably permanently. The software is old and needs a complete rewrite, the site is being bombarded by spammers, and it is debatable whether councils are receiving and/or acting on FixMyStreet reports.

As of now, it is not possible to post new issues, or updates to published issues.

If you have submitted on FixMyStreet, thank you for playing a part in one of Aotearoa/New Zealand's early civic tech projects.

  • Street lights out in Stokes Valley entrance for over a week 21 June1 update
    The street lights have been out (Stokes Valley entrance - Thomas Street, Manor, Kingsley and Lord Streets and Eastern Hutt road on the way to Upper Hutt) on consecutive nights. It is dangerous for both vehicles and pedestrians. Going outside in the early morning to go to work or coming home at night in the dark feels very unsafe. Please fix this!! It is hard enough walking home in the wet and cold with out it being dark as well. It is quite daunting.

    Near Willow grove, power box & street signs of wood st & willow grove, and on private fencing - graffiti/tagging.
  • No lights at crossing1 update
    Street lights are not working at the pedestrian crossing and neither on the wharf. This is really dangerous as drivers can't see people crossing the street, especially as this is used by school kids a lot coming off the ferry in the morning.
  • Overgrown plants1 update
    Western Hutt Rd merge with Petone overbridge traffic - just before the cyclist crossing - overgrown weeds (blackberry?) are hitting cyclists as they ride by. It's a narrow corner and there's no room for cyclists to safely to around the weeds.

  • Sodium Discharge Bulb switching ON/OFF1 update
    The sodium discharge bulb is flickering ON/OFF and also it seems like this is the only non-LED bulb in the road.

  • Vehicle taking up what little space we have
    A vehicle has been parked at the top of Waitohu Rd for months without seeming to ever leave, according to myself (who works 40h weeks) and my partner (who is unemployed and so is around during the day). Its rego expired four days ago but with the reminders I get from my rego company I think if the owners wanted to renew it they would have by now. Is there someone I can talk to about moving it off the road so that what little space we have on our cul-de-sac can be used by people who need it? Kind regards and many thanks.

  • Trip hazard on grass berm
    In between nos 16 and 18 Stanley Street, Wainuiomata, there is a power/light pole. Right next to it (on the number 18 side) is a small piece of pipe sticking out of the grass. I found this by tripping over it when the footpath was coned off during recent resurfacing work! (Yes, it's taken me this long to get around to reporting it - sorry.) While it's not in a heavily-trafficked spot under normal circumstances, it's a nasty little blighter and could be rather unpleasant to fall on top of.
  • Lights not working1 update

    Riverside Dr between Norton Park Ave and Rumgay St

  • Footpath broken
    footpath on both size of my corner property is broken and looks very ugly.
  • Speed bumps needed
    People speed along George street in the middle of the day and at night. They also use certain areas to drift and do burnouts. It has been discussed at length and on many separate occasions that a good idea would be to put in some speed bumps as this is a very busy road for both pedestrians and motorists. There has already been one recent death on the road in which speed played a huge factor. My idea would be to have one before the rugby club, one after Delaney park, and one or two down the beginning of George st in the residential areas.
  • Street lights not working1 update
    No streetlights working in Collingwood Street, Waterloo. Have been out for some days
  • washers and nuts removed from fence
    Many fasteners (nuts and washers) that fix fence rails to fence posts, have been removed from 1.8m steel clad fence that borders the public walkway running beside 61 Strand Crescent. The fence rails have already separated from the fence posts in some places. Please replace the fasteners. If you replace the standard hex nuts with galvanized nylon lock (nyloc) nuts this will prevent vandals stealing the new fasteners. The fence may be insecure in strong winds and needs prompt attention. thank you very much
  • sunken paving - trip hazard
    Several concrete paving slabs along the walkway between Rata Street have moved, resulting in edges sticking up 20mm or higher. This has created multiple trip hazards for pedestrians. One entrance to this walkway is adjacent to 100 Rata Street. Please eliminate the trip hazards as soon as possible, to prevent injury to pedestrians.
  • Grafitti on fencing
    There is new tagging on the fences along the path between Rata Street and Strand Crescent Naenae

  • subsidance on berm outside 102 Rata St1 update

  • Speed Humps in Tawhai Street
    Would like speed hump put in Tawhai street too many people speed up and down Tawhai street and the adjoining streets they use it for boy racing or just because it's a long stretch of road the speed, Doesn't matter what time of the day it is. And it's only a matter of time before a child gets hit with a car. You can here the cars coming up Glen road into Tawhai street then they go round Horoeka Street they do the laps, you get woken all hours with these speed demons. We have seen people drive into fences in to trees side swipe cars all because they go too fast.
  • Water leaking onto street1 update

  • no street lights 1 update
    No streel lighting in areas along Oxford Terrace and Harrison Crest. Car park along this road and it is difficult to see parked cars and house drive ways. Security issues may be a problem with state houses in Harrison Crest that are not occupied.
  • No Street Lighting
    The street lights have been out on consecutive nights. Going outside or coming home at dark feels very unsafe. Please fix this!! There are lots of old people living in this street, and for those who have no fencing, it is quite daunting.
  • noise chainsaws mulchers possibly? very LOUD in valley
    there seems to have been, for a while, the sound of people cutting down trees. Now the noise is for hours on end and there are other loud machinery noises it seems to be coming from the Orewa st/Parenga end (?) and can be heard from the street. Is this a council project??
  • Blocked Stormwater Grate
    The Stormwater Grate opposite our home is seems to be clogged up and needs clearing.
  • Stop Sign needs to change
    Hi There There is a "Stop" sign at the bottom of Wairere Road that needs to change to a "Give Way" sign. The original Stop sign was valid when we were able to cross SH2 to go south. But since the crossing is Closed Off, the Stop sign is no longer relevant. The reason it needs to change is that "no one" comes to a Complete Halt at this point anymore. (we used to before the new road layout). The implications of not doing this change is unfair traffic infringements being issued to the residents for not coming to a complete halt. I have consulted number of residents in Wairere Road and we all in agreement that this sign should be changed asap to a Give Way sign.
  • rubbish & roadcone in river below Village overpass bridge
    There is always rubbish dumped in the river, at the moment there are a few larger pieces of rubbish on either side of the bridge - below, within the water, including a road cone on the Rotary Park side.
  • Street light only works intermittently1 update
    Street light outside 8 Matuhi Street Tirohanga only works intermittently eg it works for 40 seconds then turns off for about 1 minute. The street light is located just by the property.
  • Damaged road signs1 update
    There are 2 damaged signs. One (showing keep left arrows) has been hit by a car and partly bent over. The other is a large sign signalling speed bumps. It has also been hit by a car and the last gale force winds caused the strapping on one side to tear so that the sign flaps around significantly in a southerly wind.

  • Street light1 update

  • Food rubbish on Jackson Street
    Rubbish has been put out prematurely on Jackson Street (outside Curry Heaven) and dogs have got into the bags. There is curry and rice all around the area.
  • Stormwater grate broken - outside No. 5
    On the berm vehicle crossover outside number 5 the storwater grate has broken. The larger section has fallen down into the stormwater drain leveling 3/4 of the hole uncovered. I notice the hole is approx a metre or so deep and an adult foot would easily fit in the hole. The area is used by school children every morning and afternoon during the term to go to and from Hutt Central School. The whole needs to be covered.
  • Overhanging branches
    In the alleyway, alongside Waterloo Kindy, (access on the left from Trafalgar Street) towards the school, there are overhanging branches that adults need to duck under when walking towards the school. Could these please be trimmed back.
  • Removal of signs
    Where old signs have been removed from the footpath, their metal bases are still jutting up out of the concrete, a tripping hazard. I think there are 3 of them. These are around the Waterloo School side of the road, between the crossing and the shops. I have seen one mum stumble as she pushed her pram along the street and kicked the metal base, she commented on how she could have broken her toe. Also I have seen school children come out and nearly stubbed their toes and fall off their scooters. Nasty. I haven't checked to see if there are others on the other side of the street too.
  • Dangerous ditch next to Hutt River Cycle path
    There is a dangerous drain ditch right beside the shared use cycle path on the river side of the Lower Hutt Riverbank Car Park. The ditch is very close to the path and not obvious on approach. As this is a narrow path a cyclist could easily ride off or be forced off the cycle path by other cyclists, pedestrians or dogs. Today I witnessed a spectacular non-injury cycle accident when a cyclist strayed slightly off the path straight into the ditch. Fortunately the bike dropped away and the cyclist landed on the ground on the far side of the ditch. This drain ditch needs to be sign posted, covered or fenced off.
  • Broken glass on the cycle path2 update
    there is a lot of broken glass on the cycle path on the western hutt road, so it's very dangerous for the cyclists. And it's getting more every day.
  • Street light broken1 update
    Street light on cnr Rona St/Marama Terrace only works intermittently.
  • Street too narrow for parking on both sides
    There should be a yellow no parking line in front of 6 Marama Terrace like it is in the rest of the street. It's too narrow for cars being parked on both sides of the street and still leaving enough room for an ambulance or fire engine.
  • truck tyre on side of road
    On Tuesday (recycling day) I came home to find a truck tyre outside my place at 53 Bristol Square
