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.

Older issues

  • Deep potholes on new roundabout
    There are 2 or 3 deep potholes on the roundabout, coming out of Raiha Street. I know the roundabout is still somewhat in progress but the seal needs to be fixed. Completely messed up my little classic minis suspension alignment.
  • Potholes and rough surface
    Several areas of rough surface and potholes from the Kenepuru link overpass to the Porirua offramp on State Highway one Northbound lane, all degrading further day by day.
  • Street lights out
    Lights have been out on Main road from Porirua school to Takapuwahia several weeks now. Area very dark and unsafe for pedestrians.
  • Majorly over grown grass berm
    The grass berm outside 134 castor cres is dangerously over grown likewise with the vacant land this is a fire hazard in the summer with the young kids playing around with matches lighters etc
  • Lights out on Main Road all week
    The Street lights on the Main Road have been out all week. All of Kapiti Cres has now gone. The area is extremely dark which makes it unsafe for residents. This is urgent given the length of time they have been out.
  • Yellow lines
    Between 5 and 7 Donlin road there is only a small space and cars are parking there making it unsafe and very hard for us residence to get in and out of our drive ways - yellow lines are needed and would not impact the parking
  • Yellow lines needed
    Between 35 and 37 sea vista drive driveway entrances there is a small space. Cars constantly park here and when parked here often encroach on either driveway or make it impossible to enter number 37 when coming up the road. This issue is ongoing but has become more often with walkers on the track or clients to a nearby beauty boutique or just generally street traffic. Can yellow lines please be painted on the road batten the driveway entrances of number 35 and 37 sea vista drive
  • Street lamp out
    Street lamp outside no 25 Inlet View is out
  • Yellow lines over driveway
    I live opposite Porirua Park. On most Saturdays in=n the winter there are rugby games both morning and afternoon at the park. i do not consider the yellow lines outside my property to adequately cover my driveway. People who park outside my home don't seem to know the distance their card should be from the yellow lines so often a van or ute will park with its back hanging over the yellow line. This means that i am effectively trapped in my driveway because not only are there cars parked on both sides of the road BUT there are cars driving up and down the road looking for a park. Even though my car is facing outward, the angle i would have to effect to get out of my drive is not sufficient incentive to try to get out! I'd appreciate you extending the yellow lines to give me confidence to use my own driveway. Many thanks for your consideration.

  • Half finished fence and tree clearing
    About a year ago Council removed and pruned the trees between Pikarere Street and Patiki Place just before Tuna Tce. It's much more open with the trees gone and you can now get great views of titahi bay beach. So overall it's an improvement. But it looks like the job has only been half done. A few posts have been put in but nothing more. There is also a whole lot of half erected orange plastic fencing. I would like to see this finished and tidied up so that it is no longer such an eye sore. Thanks in advance!!!

  • Overgrown Lawns/berm
    This house has extremely overgrown lawns including the grass berm on the outer fence and berm.
  • Cars Blocking Road
    Cars park on the single lane cul-de-sac this caused other cars to have to drive up onto the curb (often where kids from the neighbourhood are playing) and big trucks (recycling for example) often have to reverse back around, which is very dangerous (against for the kids playing). Suggest yellow lines are painted to illustrate to these idiots not to park there....apparently common sense is not enough. See photo taken on Sunday afternoon.

    Cylists heading toward Pauatahanui along SH58 have to avoid the mess including glass all the way along it but especially on this corner. The problem is they have to ride off the shoulder and in the main road around this right-hand bend which is dangerous. Please sweep this road regularly.
  • Very poor road surface3 update

    There is a pot hole in the right of way at the bottom right hand side of the Saunders Close Cul De Sac. This is dangerous as children use this right of way for there bikes and scooters, and one child fell in the hole at the weekend. Appreciate you guys filling in this hole before someone really hurts themselves.
