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 footpath

The footpath on the western side of Durham St approaching Moorhouse Ave has been mostly blocked by a roadworks sign for works on the Durham St overbridge. With a fence on the non-road side already constraining the width available, there is now less than the CTOC required minimum width of 1.2m. Why not place it on the road, leaving the footpath clear for pedestrians (there are 4 lanes at this point on Durham St, so plenty of lanes available for motorists, even if the right hand lane ends up partially blocked by the sign …)?

Roadworks on Durham St overbridge finished and TTM removed, but advance "Roadworks" signs still left on Durham St, where the sign on RHS is still blocking the footpath
