Item:                   TAC075-16        Colin Avenue, Riverwood - Request for a No Parking Restriction 

Author:              Senior Traffic Engineer, Shereny Selim

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

 

Recommendation

a)      That a 25.8m long ‘No Parking, 8:30am-6pm, Mon-Fri” restriction be installed on the western side of Colin Avenue, Riverwood south of the existing No Stopping restriction (up to the power pole at the boundary of 33 Colin Avenue, Riverwood).

b)      That all the residents of Colin Avenue, Riverwood be advised of Council’s decision.

 

Executive Summary

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s approval to install a No Parking restriction on the western side of Colin Avenue, Riverwood.

Background

2.      Council has received numerous representations from the residents in Colin Avenue Riverwood, requesting Council to consider installing a No Parking restriction on one side of Colin Avenue, Riverwood.

3.      The resident has advised that due to their street’s close proximity to Riverwood Station, commuters are attracted to the on street parking in their street, occupying both sides of Colin Avenue during most of the weekdays.

4.      The resident has further advised that this causes ingress and egress problems to the off-street parking facilities of the residents due to the narrow width of Colin Avenue. The situation is worse on waste collection days where Garbage-Trucks cannot enter their street in a safe manner to collect the residents’ waste bins. As a solution, the resident has requested Council to install a No Parking restriction on one side of Colin Avenue.

5.      It is advised that Colin Avenue is located south of Webb Street Riverwood, ending in a cul-de-sac configuration. It measures 7.2m in width. Accordingly when cars are parked on both sides of the street, only about 2.5m carriageway is available for through vehicles. Road Rules stipulates a minimum of 3m clearance for through traffic. Thus a No Parking restriction on one side of Colin Avenue is considered warranted. However, it is recommended that the No Parking be installed during weekdays only to allow for visitors of the residents to be able to utilise the on street parking during weekends.

6.      It is further advised that all residents in Collins Avenue have means to off street parking.

7.      The resident was advised that if No Parking was installed, the restriction will also apply to the residents and their visitors without any exemption.

8.      In response to the residents’ request, a questionnaire was sent to all the residents of Colin Avenue asking them to choose from the following options

a)   Install No Parking along the western side of Colin Avenue including the cul-de- sac.

b)   Install No Parking, 6am-10am TUESDAYS only on the eastern side of Colin Avenue to allow for better access to garbage trucks during Collection days”.

c)   DO NOTHING.

9.      In response to Council’s consultation, majority of the residents of Colin Avenue responded supporting a No Parking on the western side of Colin Avenue; but most of them strongly objected to extending the No Parking restriction to include the cul-de-sac.

10.    It is advised that the proposed No Parking restriction will be adjacent to the side frontage of 33 Webb Street, Riverwood; th resident of this property was consulted and is in full agreement for the proposed No Parking restriction.

 

 

Financial Implications

11.    Within budget allocation – Estimated cost of the works is $200.

Item:                   TAC076-16        Intersection of Vivienne Street and Kingsgrove Road, Kingsgrove – Proposal to Install ‘WATCH OUT FOR PEDESTRIANS’ Warning Sign 

Author:              Senior Traffic Engineer, Shereny Selim

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

 

Recommendation

a)      That ‘Watch out for Pedestrians’ warning sign be installed in Vivienne Street, at its intersection with Kingsgrove Road, Kingsgrove.

b)      That the residents be advised of Council’s decision.

 

Executive Summary

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s approval to install a custom made warning sign ‘Watch out for Pedestrians’ in Vivienne Street, at its intersection with Kingsgrove Road, Kingsgrove.

Background

2.      Council has received numerous representations from the residents of Vivienne Street, Kingsgrove advising that their street is always being used as a “rat run” between Stoney Creek Road and Kingsgrove Road during peak times, where cars utilise their street to turn left into Kingsgrove Road to avoid congestion on Stoney Creek Road.

3.      Accordingly the residents have advised that they have witnessed many near misses due to cars are in a rush and not taking the time to watch out for pedestrians walking on the footpath along Kingsgrove Road.

4.      It is advised that there is a raised threshold in Vivienne Street, about 30 metres from the intersection of Vivienne Street and Kingsgrove Road. This makes motorists to slow down before approaching the intersection. However, it is considered appropriate to install a warning signage at this location to raise the awareness of drivers to the presence of pedestrians at the subject intersection

5.      In this regard it is recommended to install a custom made warning sign such as indicated below in Vivienne Street at Kingsgrove Road to raise the awareness of motorists that they require to give way to pedestrians at the intersection.

 

Financial Implications

6.      Within budget allocation – Estimated cost of the works is $300.

Executive Summary

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s approval to implement temporary traffic management measures on Park Road and The Avenue, Hurstville adjacent to Westfield Shopping Centre during the 2016 Christmas shopping period.

Background

2.      Every year the Centre Manager of Westfield Hurstville requests permission to implement a number of traffic management measures on The Avenue, Park Road and Cross Street, Hurstville during the Christmas shopping period to ease traffic congestion around Westfield Shopping Centre.

3.      This year it is proposed to have the proposed traffic management measures in place from Thursday, 15 December 2016 to Saturday, 31 December 2016 in order to reduce traffic congestion in Hurstville CBD during the 2016 Christmas period.

4.      The proposed traffic control measures include:

6.      Similar traffic measures were used in the past few years to successfully manage traffic during the previous Christmas periods. 

7.      In addition to the parking restrictions requested by Westfield Management, every year the police representative on the Traffic Advisory Committee had always requested additional No Parking restrictions to be installed along both sides of Cross Street between Park Road and The Avenue, Hurstville during the busiest time of the Christmas period in order to further reduce traffic congestion in Hurstville CBD during the pre and post-Christmas sales period.

8.      Accordingly, it is suggested to also restrict parking on both sides of Cross Street between Park Road and The Avenue, Hurstville from Friday 23 of December 2016 to Saturday 31 December 2016.

Item:                   TAC079-16        Forest Road, Lugarno - Request for Pedestrian Crossings near Koorabel Street and Ponderosa Place, Lugarno 

Author:              Senior Traffic Engineer, Shereny Selim

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

 

Recommendation

(a)     That the request for a pedestrian crossing in Forest Road, near Ponderosa Place Lugarno be denied as it does not meet the RMS warrants

(b)     That the request for a pedestrian crossing in Forest Road, near Koorabel Street, Lugarno be denied as it does not meet the RMS warrants

(c)     That Mr David Coleman, MP, Member for Banks be advised of Council’s decision.

 

Executive Summary

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for a request to install pedestrian crossings in Forest Road near Ponderosa Place and Koorabel Street, Lugarno.

Background

2.      Council has received a representation from Mr David Coleman, MP, Member for Banks on behalf of one of his constituent requesting Council to consider installing a pedestrian crossing in Forest Road, Lugarno, near its intersection with Ponderosa Place.

3.      Council has also received another representation from a resident requesting to install a pedestrian crossing in Forest Road, Lugarno, near its intersection with Koorabel Street.

4.      Koorabel Street is located 170m south of Ponderosa Place, accordingly both locations were investigated together.

5.      It is advised that traffic at the intersection of Forest Road and Ponderosa Place is controlled by a roundabout with associated splitter islands.

6.      It is further advised that there is an existing pedestrian refuge in Forest Road, 80 m north of Ponderosa Place, Lugarno. This will assist pedestrians to cross Forest Road in two stages.

7.      To establish the required warrants to install a pedestrian crossing in Forest Road, Council carried out traffic pedestrian counts in Forest road at Ponderosa Place, Lugarno and Koorabel Street, Lugarno. The results of these surveys are tabulated below.

8.      The results of the survey in Forest Road at Ponderosa Place, Lugarno are as follows:

Date

03/11/2016

10.    To justify the need for a marked pedestrian crossing on a public road there are certain warrants that must be established according to the RMS’s Guidelines for Traffic Facilities.These warrants are as follows:

a)   The products of the measured pedestrian flow per hour (P) and the measured vehicle traffic flow per hour (V), PV, is equal to or greater than 60,000, and

b)   The measured flows, P and V are equal to or greater than 30 and 500 respectively, and

c)   The measured flows apply for three periods of one hour in any day

11.    In addition to the above warrants there are also reduced warrants for when the pedestrian crossing is aimed for school children.

12.    According to these reduced warrants, the road should carry a minimum of 200 vehicles/hour and a minimum of 30 pedestrians/hour should cross the subject location of the road during two periods of a day to justify the installation of a pedestrian crossing predominately for school children.

13.    As can be seen from the results of the traffic counts, it is not possible to justify the installation of a pedestrian crossing in Forest Road either at Ponderosa Place or at Koorabel Street, Lugano.

 

Financial Implications

14.    No budget impact for this report.

5.      In previous years, Council has deployed a number of traffic control measures to accommodate displaced bus stops and other facilities in Forest Road, MacMahon Street and the Bus Interchange. Problems encountered at the 2013 Lunar New Year were better managed through meetings with stakeholders, with the 2014, 2015 and 2016 events being very successful. The traffic control measures deployed during the 2016 event will be used for the 2017 Lunar New Year.      

6.      The traffic control measures to facilitate the 2017 Lunar New Year’s Street Festival on Saturday 4 February 2017 are listed below:

·        The eastern end of Forest Road will be closed at Treacy Street.

·        All the bus stops at the Hurstville Bus Interchange, Forest Road and MacMahon Street will be temporally relocated to existing Bus stands in Hurstville CBD on the day of the proposed road closure as follows:

o The Bus Zone on the southern side of Barrett Street, Hurstville will be extended 15 metres west.

o The Bus Zone on the northern side of Barrett Street, Hurstville will be extended 15 metres west.

o The Bus Zone on the southern side of Crofts Street, Hurstville will be extended 12 metres east (to replace the Loading Zone).

o That a 60 metre Bus Zone will be installed on the Southern side of Cross Street between the Avenue and Park Road.

·        The existing Taxi Rank in Forest Road will be relocated to Woodville Street, Hurstville.

·        Road closures will be manned by professional traffic controllers and RMS accredited SES volunteers.

7.      As per previous four years, Council is planning to engage a professional contractor to prepare and manage traffic control measures for the proposed road closure. The State Emergency Services volunteers have agreed to man pedestrian crossings and crowd control during the event. Emergency vehicle access will be maintained through the northern end of the Hurstville Bus Interchange.

8.      In addition to the above traffic control measure, Council decided to apply to the Transport Management Centre for a Special Event Clearway restriction along Forest Road and Queens Road to ease traffic congestion during the event.
