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.

Excessive amount of gravel at road edge

This issue has been fixed.

After road resealing recently, there is an excessive amount of gravel/chip on the road edge at the approach to Wairakei Bridge when heading to Taupo. The gravel is about 15m x 0.5m and 5-10cm deep. I think this is a significant risk to cyclists using this route. That is, a risk for cyclists to lose control on loose gravel on a busy road with speed limit of 100km/h. Can you please arrange for the gravel to be removed?
