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.

Cycle lane blocked by roadworks sign

Westbound cycle lane on Pages Rd (just west of Ottawa Rd) totally blocked by “Road works” sign. Why not place sign clear of cycle lane (and footpath) on grassed area to left of footpath? This would still be clearly visible to approaching road users without endangering anyone. It is disappointing that the “Best Practice for Cyclists” Guide (http://tmpforchch.co.nz/downloads/cycle-booklet-finall-small/) does not appear to have been followed when placing this sign, despite the requirement to do so in the CTOC Local Operating Procedures (Chapter 19, http://tmpforchch.co.nz/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/CTOC-LOP_v4_FINAL_20140919.pdf). It is also disappointing that there does not appear to be “adequate monitoring and auditing off all traffic management” by CTOC to prevent the practice of blocking cycle lanes with roadworks signs, which appears common throughout Christchurch.
