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.

Dangerous road works

This issue has been fixed.

March 13 I was biking through the Marshalnds/QEII roundabout. I was yelled at by a passing traffic management truck to get off the road. At this intersection they have continually blocked the bike path and put "caution cyclists merging" signs on the road, so I used the road. Given this incident I'd like you to pass the following message on to all roadworking staff: your job is to safely manage traffic around your work site so if you don't like the way people are using your road, DO YOUR JOB. We aren't mind readers. Thank you.

I suppose finishing the road works counts as a 'fix', although I wouldn't bike through there now if you paid me.
