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.

Incorrect & Potentially Unsafely Installed LED Streetlight

The streetlight outside #6 Laxon Ave, Otara has problems. The light is mounted at a wonky/uneven angle causing the red positive cable to be pulled under tension which may fatigue or stress the cable and terminals. Not sure how secure the light is. The street is straight at this location and the light should be perpendicular to the street to allow light to spill lengthways down the road but because of the incorrect mounting angle a large amount of light spills onto the properties on this side of the street causing light to illuminate bedroom windows even though they are at least 10M from the footpath. The poor mounting angle has been reported directly to AT via their website before but no action after 6 months.
