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.

Steel cable in Buller river, above Granity Creek

Reported by H Canard: "There is a steel cable in the top of the first class III rapid above Granity Creek rapid. This is the rapid that pushes right against the bank and has large boulders in the flow. The cable may be attached to a concrete block. The cable is just to the right of the largest boulder at the top of the rapid, which is a logical eddy to scout from. It will be covered but still dangerous at higher flows." Please remove the cable. Per the September 2007 Disputes Tribunal hearing re Petrie vs Wellington Regional Council, GWRC was required to remove the hazard after a "near miss" pinning incident on a steel beam from a flood protection groyne in the Ruamahanga River. Refer to photo and map for details.
