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.

What's wrong? - I have nearly been run over on my bike each morning, for the last 2 days riding to work. This is a wide 4 lane street that encourages fast traffic in an area that is used by many cyclists and pedestrians accessing the city, offices and gyms etc in the area. This street is also a significant hazard. Recent projects have or will introduce significantly more people to the area. The new Telecom building has resulted in another 2000+ people using the street. It is in effect a 4 lane highway to the city, while at the same time being a street used by a large number of pedestrians and cyclists. Can the traffic speeds be reduced? Can greater ease of access/crossing for pedestrians be provided? More pedestrian crossings and a median barrier would assist greatly to achieve this. The wide entrance to Hardinge st encourages cars to turn into the street at high speed. can this road entrance be narrowed?
