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 base (without sign) blocking cycle lane

Westbound cycle lane on Ferry Rd opposite Waterman Place is blocked by 2 roadworks sign. The first is a standard “Roadworks” sign, whilst the second has had the sign removed, leaving just the base and sign stand (which is still blocking the cycle lane, but is now really hard to see). Ironically the sign removed from the base & stored on the grass berm on the far side of the footpath is an “Extreme Care Cyclists Merging” sign, so the contractor who placed these signs definitely knew they were putting them in a cycle lane (contrary to CTOC LOP & CoPTTM). There is a wide footpath next to both signs – they could have been placed on the footpath, so not endangering cyclists whilst leaving enough space (1.2+m) for pedestrians to safely pass.

Works finished and all TTM equipment removed (but not before Connetics put the "Extreme Care Cyclists Merging" sign back up on the based they'd left in the cycle lane).
