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.

Roadworks sign blocking cycle lane

Connetics have blocked the citybound cycle lane on Linwood Ave between Gloucester St & Tancred St with a roadworks sign. Cyclists trying to get past it are forced into the narrow general traffic lane, often in front of a whole line of cars just leaving the Gloucester St intersection. Surely it could have been placed on the grass verge (next to its current position) or moved 5-6m down the road, where the parking shoulder starts to develop. Both options would remove it from the cycle lane whilst ensuring it still remains visible to approaching road users.
