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.

Redundant roadworks signs

Approaching the Milton St/Strickland St intersection, “Extreme Care Cyclists Merging” signs have been placed on both Milton St approaches and the Strickland St north approach. Yet none of the cycle lanes approaching, through or leaving the intersection are blocked, so cyclists do not need to merge anywhere. Around the intersection cones have been placed in the gutters next to the cycle lanes (so not impeding cyclists in the cycle lanes at all) – presumably they were moved there when work finished on the site for the day. Temporary speed limit signs have also been taken down on all of the approaches (but are still there on site). Why couldn’t the “Cyclists Merging” signs also have been taken down? Leaving out signs that are not relevant will just lead road users to ignore them in future, which may be in a situation where cyclists & motorists are forced to merge.
