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.

Dangerous road surface

The condition of the road surface on Poihipi road has become dangerous. There are many large bumps and depressions that have caused two accidents that I know of and who knows how many near misses. The main area is from 1500m west of CONTROL GATES INTERSECTION, to 1000m west of TUKAIRANGI ROAD. One very harsh bump i believe was also the cause for a trailer axle spring breaking which nearly threw me across the centre line into oncoming traffic. Please repair this road as it is no longer just a back road, but a main arterial route for many. Thank you
