Fix My Street Internet and mobile platform is a way for citizens to report problems in the public space electronically, such as potholes, broken pavements, defaced walls, faded road markings, fly tipping, and problems with public lighting and road signs, through a single point of contact. As a smart city tool, Fix My Street also highlights the involvement of citizens in the management of their neighborhood and commune, and the attention they give to the quality of the public space in which they live.

The 19 Brussels communes are all involved in the platform, so it covers the whole territory of the Brussels Region. Bringing everything together into one platform, means that citizens no longer have to spend time searching for the relevant authority to contact, particularly considering Brussels’ complex governance structure. The app has already 8000 users, whom reported almost 26 000 incidents just in the last year.
