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.

Traffic lights not green long enough

Hi, This morning and every other morning, I travel along Park Road and turn right onto Fitzherbert Avenue. However the right hand green arrow on the traffic lights does not stay green for long enough to let more than 4-5 cars go through. Then we have to give way to oncoming traffic coming through from the other side of Park Road. I came through around 7:48am and I didn't get through to Fitzherbert Avenue until 7:56am. The traffic was backed up past Batt Street and sometimes gets further back than that. This is also a problem in the afternoons, around 4:30-5pm. I'm asking that the green hand arrow for traffic turning onto Fitzherbert Avenue stays green for a lot longer to get more traffic through. Thanks very much, Sarah

The traffic lights on the corner of Fitzherbert Ave and Te Awe Awe St are not staying green for long enough. This morning turning right from Fitzherbert Ave (coming from the bridge) into Te Awe Awe St the green arrow would only remain on for a few seconds. It took 4-5 light changes to get through and there were only 8-10 cars wanting to turn. Craig Seton 021 938339
