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.

Hi, the street light across the road from us (between 263 and 265 Penrose Road) was recently repaired at the same time we trimmed our hedge and it now shines very brightly into our bedroom at night. I've seen some lights with a partial cover on them - is it possible for one to be added please?

Streetlight outside 44 Nigel Road, Browns Bay, next to 11KV transformer needs adjustment , causes bad glare to the west and doesn't wash street properly. Looks like ceramic lamp holder internal to fitting has slipped/broken from its mount, no longer sitting where it should in the reflector. This makes it execced the recommended degree as per the Auckland Transport Code of Practice for Street Lighting, 19.7.1
