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.

1. The STOP sign on left side of Arrowsmith & Shepherds Rd, is obscured by tree branches when approaching from West Side, and the tree currently has no leaves. Maybe make the sign much lower. 2. The road surface at Lake end of Shepherds Road, by Harvey St intersection, is deteriorating even more. Sinkage?? 3. My granddaughter and I missed being T-boned by a speeding car at the Napier Rd intersection, by approx 10 metres. Thank goodness I had slowed to look for vehicles travelling on Napier Road, approx 6.35 pm Monday night. Lots of traffic stopped at Eastern Stop sign, and cars coming thru from Arrowsmith, cars behind me too. 1 million for new playground, but nothing for this damn death trap. Can we sue the Council for creating a Death Trap?. Put up cameras and make hundreds of thousands of dollars from fines. Akld ciy Council have issued fines for 4.6 million in 3 months, from the 100 metre Bus Lane Camera. Contact Chris Creighton, Grp Manager of Technology Solutions to verify this. Yesterday, when I was out For a walk, 4 vehicles went through without coming to a STOP. PLEASE FORGET UNNECESSARY SPENDING AND FIX THIS DEATH TRAP. ☠️
