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.

Rapidly growing subsurface slump in cycle lane

There is a growing hole in Fendalton Rd between the railway crossing and Jacksons Rd, in the westbound cycle lane. There is sufficient undermining that it will soon be affected by heavy vehicles in the traffic lane, if not already. It has become a cycle safety risk due to swerving into the traffic lane, and may become a fall risk too. There is a similar patched slump a few metres to the east that may indicate an area of basecourse undermining issues. A few weeks ago a slight sag appeared. A week or so ago the seal broke through. In the last week it has become several times larger. Someone at Council would probably quite like to catch this rapidly deteriorating situation before it gets too much worse.
