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.

A new sign has been installed on the berm. It's a road safety sign encouraging drivers to slow down. It was installed late last year and it's right across a berm so that walkers and riders now need to step off the berm onto the 80kph road to go around it. It would be safer for us to stay on the berm, can you put these sorts of signs up a bit higher? Cars are not the only road users. Also someon'es had their car parked on the same berm with a for sale sign on it for over a month, this is also blocking the safest place for horse riders and walkers.

Thank you, Auckland Transport, the sign blocking the berm has been removed, and the cars for sale have also gone from the berm. An excellent (and safe) result for the walkers, runners and horse riders on Riverhead Road.
