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/Congested Intersection

It would be appreciated if Council would give consideration to putting a roundabout or traffic lights at the intersection of Waterloo Road and Racecourse Road. This is a very dangerous intersection, and even more so since the "left turning traffic" road rule change came into effect. Traffic is also heavier since the earthquakes, as many businesses have relocated to Hornby and nearby suburbs. Due to the large volume of traffic on Waterloo Road wishing to turn right and the type of traffic (ie heavy vehicles), this issue needs urgent attention before someone is seriously injured or killed. Traffic gets backed up, drivers get impatient and many people are taking risks pulling out in front of oncoming traffic on Racecourse Road.
