FixCyprus is a mobile application to report problems in the road network infrastructure affecting road safety in Cyprus.
Specifically, through the FixCyprus mobile application, every citizen, once registered, can create reports accompanied by a photo, location, and comments, which highlights problems in the road network infrastructure related to road safety. These reports may concern damages, vandalism and other risks to infrastructures related to the road network. After a report is created, it will be automatically forwarded to the corresponding district office of the Public Works Department (PWD) based on the geographic location of the report. Through a web portal, the district offices of the PWD will evaluate the reports, and provided they meet the terms and conditions of the application, they will be assigned to the authorities responsible for managing the problems recorded in each report.
The authorities will be notified through a web portal and will be responsible for scheduling a repair and fixing it. The FixCyprus app users will be able to track the status of their reports through the app's report history.
This integrated solution aims to reduce the need for regular road network inspections with the contribution of the citizens and the use of technologies such as geographical information systems, mobile applications, and the internet to collect issues affecting the road network infrastructure for a quick response from maintenance authorities. In addition, this application will improve the communication between citizens and government while at the same time will increase road safety in Cyprus.
