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

Roadworks on Armagh St between Manchester St & Madras St direct cars into the eastbound cycle lane and then force cyclists out of the cycle lane as the cycle lane is coned off. There is no advance warning of either of these situations, especially for cyclist & vehicles turning left from Manchester St (especially with the temporary corrugated iron wall blocking the view onto Armagh St and the end of the 30kph temporary speed limit just prior to the Armagh St intersection). There are also half a dozen unsealed holes in the asphalt from previous works which could be hazardous to cyclists, either if they hit them or have to swerve suddenly to avoid them.
