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.

Yellow lines needed to maintain street access

Tuirangi Street narrows between the roundabout and the Claymore Street end, and has an island dividing the road. When two cars are parked opposite each other there is only room for one car to pass through. However when these cars also park between the first houses' driveway and the roundabout, it becomes difficult, sometimes impossible to enter Tuirangi street (see photos). Today the car in the photo has been parked here all day. A small car can get through but requires careful steering; a large car has its wheels up against or on the island curb. It is about to become worse, as many people park here when using Discovery Park during winter sports. Often there are two cars parked between the first driveways and the roundabout (on both sides), so we cannot enter the street without driving over the island, or driving illegally on the wrong side if it is free. On some occasions we have to find a park for our cars and walk home. Could you please put yellow line markers between the first driveways and the roundabout to stop people parking here. Thank you.

Hey folks, Any chance we could get one side of the street yellow-lined on Magellan Rise? Cars parking both sides of the street have become a problem. This is a pretty major thoroughfare these days, and a bus route. It's also pretty dangerous with cars parking on the top of the hill on the corner... you pretty much just pass and hope there's nothing coming around the corner from the other side of the hill. I posted a rant about this on the Flagstaff residents facebook a few weeks ago. I see someoneone else has also complained about the situation today - accident involved. Here's my thoughts: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10155616471449488&set=gm.1353423568024420&type=3&theater thanks Andy
