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.

Hi there I go down Antigua Street heading south everyday on my way to work (I park in Silvester Motor Co). I have witnessed many near misses at this intersection (car:car and many bike:car). I believe that this is due to the current layout of the intersection - there is a lane on the left which is for left turning drivers, but the centre lane is for both straight and right turning drivers. This layout is no longer as effective given the change in give way rules and actually means it has become quite dangerous. The increase in traffic at this intersection means that right turning traffic wait for a significant period of time before turning, meaning straight driving traffic are going around them. This means that traffic turning right into Moorhouse from the South direction have very poor visibility. Cyclists are left in the middle of both streams of traffic with no safe place to wait. I believe this intersection should be redesigned so that the left lane is for left turning and straight traffic with the centre lane for right turning traffic only. Thanks heaps. ps - happy to discuss this if required to elaborate!
