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.

Due to frequent traffic utilisng the forest we get showered by road dust. We cannot open the windows to our house in the afternoon sun. The Auckand council advertises the local forest on all their websites as a suitable place for recreational use including mountain biking. As a resuly we get 50 -80 cars go visit the area daily. 100 + round trips. Once we lived on a quiet lane with only one other resident sharing the road. Due to the change in use and only 10km from metro Auckland the road needs urgent action outside our house.
