Timaru Cyclists! Did you know that you can report problems you encounter on the roads in the district directly to the Council online and, yes, they will get fixed! Isn't that awesome! Examples might include broken glass on the road, potholes or a section of road surface that needs repairing (other examples are supplied in a drop-down list.) This system has been tried and found to work, so go for it!
Here's the link:
...or look for E-Fix on the Timaru District Council website, on the right under "Direct Links".
Post your feedback here on Squeaky Wheel: the problem you reported and whether your problem was fixed or not. It might be a handy list for us to refer to.
