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.

Could this intersection be any more hostile to pedestrians?

Terrible corner radius. No crosswalk. Huge distance across.

Agreed, it's terrifying to cross! Its only saving grace is a traffic island you can stand on to help you cross traffic coming out of Sale St (the much easier part of the equation). What's more, this very exposed crossing puts the pedestrian among parked cars and rubbish bins on the uphill side.
Agreed, this is the entrance to a small street, not a state highway. The kerb on the south corner should be built out almost up to where that island is, and it will still work fine. Sure, cars can no longer turn in at 50 kph, but so what.
an area that has enough hassles already with parking for local workers has now lost additional car parking, and in its place we have some plantars and judder bars. absolute genius use of our rates and taxes. thank you to the pedestrians who are too intellectually "pedestrian" select a safe place to cross the street and instead expect the council to inconvenience all other road users to suit you. no surprises that Auckland transport went along with it though really is it. but not a war on cars right? right?
