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.

Sign base without sign dangerous for cyclists

City Care have left a roadworks sign base, without a sign attached, on St Asaph St between Barbadoes St & Ferry Rd. As it is located immediately in front of the start of the westbound cycle lane, it could be dangerous for cyclists (especially as there is no taper in front of it and it is very hard to see without a sign on it). As CoPTTM is quite clear that “sign bases must not be left in place, without signs attached, in a manner that will be a hazard to any road user, including … cyclists”, maybe City Care could explain why they consider removing the sign but leaving the base immediately in front of a cycle lane does not present a hazard to cyclists?
