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.

Temporary traffic management unsafe for cyclists

New roadworks on Gasson St northbound at Wordsworth St force cyclists from cycle lane into general traffic lane with no warning for cyclists or drivers. On approach, there are “Lane closed” signs on both sides of Gasson St showing that the left lane is closed. Surprisingly, there are no signs warning drivers that cyclists will be forced into lane 1 and then into lane 2 (all at the same time as drivers in lane 1 are trying to merge into lane 2 at 50kph).
