Item:                   TAC094-16        Mulga Road, Oatley - Review of Recently Installed Period Parking Restriction 

Author:              Senior Traffic Engineer, Shereny Selim

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

 

Recommendation

a.      That the recently installed time restricted parking on the northern side of Mulga Road between Myall Street and Mi Mi Street, Oatley be retained for a trial period of 3 months; at the end of the trial period, an extensive consultation be carried out with all the affected residents and the businesses along Mulga Road, Oatley.

b.      That the results of the survey be brought back to the Traffic Committee for consideration.

 

 

Executive Summary

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration in reviewing the recently installed time restricted parking along the northern side of Mulga Road between Myall Street and Mi Mi Street, Oatley.

Background

2.      In 2012, following an extensive consultation and many deliberation with business owners at Oatley Shopping Strip, Council installed a combination of 1/2P, 1P and 2P parking restrictions along the southern side of Mulga Road where properties are predominantly used by businesses; no changes were made to the unrestricted parking areas on the northern side of the street as that side is predominantly occupied by residential developments.

3.      Since the above changes, the types of businesses in Mulga Road have changed, where more cafes and eateries have opened up this, in turn, has changed the customer needs for parking.

4.      As advised previously when changes to parking arrangement were being implemented along the southern side (the shops side) of Mulga Road, Council consulted extensively with the Chamber of Commerce, the businesses and the individual shop owners. 

5.      With the changes in type of businesses, demand for short-term, on-street, parking in Mulga Road continues to increase. At the same time, many residents wrote to Council advising of their frustration due to the lack of on street parking for their visitors and nurses/carers who could no longer gain access to on street parking near their properties.

6.      To resolve this issue, Council considered extending the time-restricted parking arrangement to the northern side of Mulga Road. However, it was considered that residents of the adjoining properties will be greatly affected by any changes to parking along the northern side of Mulga Road.  

7.      Accordingly, Council sent a survey to all the affected residents along the northern side of Mulga Road between Myall and Woronora Parade requesting their feedback in regards to a proposal to install time-restricted parking outside their properties.

8.      The residents were asked to pick their preferred option or preferred options (they were advised that they can pick more than one) from the 4 options below for possible changes to the parking arrangement along the northern side of Mulga Road

Ø 1P restriction

Ø 2P restriction

Ø 1/2P restriction

Ø No restriction (leave it as unrestricted).

9.      Residents of 15 affected properties were consulted. 8 of them replied back with the choices as follows

10.    Four (4) residents were in favour of 1P restriction, three (3) residents were in favour of 1/2P restriction, one (1) resident was in favour of 2P restriction and two (2) residents were in favour of no restrictions at all.

11.    In light of the above the Traffic Committee recommended and Council resolved in September 2016 that the northern side of Mulga Road between Myall Street and Mi Mi Street be restricted to ‘1/2P, 8.30am-6.00pm Mon-Fri, 8.30am-4.00pm Saturday’, and between Mi Mi Street and Woronora Parade to ‘1P, 8.30am-6.00pm, Mon-Fri, 8.30am-4.00pm Saturdays’. Council endorsed the Traffic Committee’s recommendations at its meeting in October 2016.

12.    Accordingly, Council installed the approved time-restricted parking on the northern side of Mulga Road. However, since the installation of the period parking zones, Council received a number of representations from business owners and residents complaining about the changes. Most of them did not want the restriction or wanted the restriction to be longer times.

13.    On the other hand the Traffic Section was also congratulated and received many compliments and letters of appreciation from residents and businesses where the parking turnover was improved for them as well as for the residents who have been able to get parking for their visitors, trades people and nurses/carers outside their premises.

14.    The feedback about the new restrictions has been overwhelming in regards to their acceptance and rejection. Accordingly it is considered appropriate to trial the changes for a 3-month period, after which, more consultation will be undertaken with all the affected residents and business to assess their views. 

 

 

Financial Implications

15.    No budget impact for this report.

Item:                   TAC095-16        Penshurst Street and Bryant Street Intersection, Beverly Hills – Road Safety Concerns 

Author:              Senior Traffic Engineer, Shereny Selim

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

 

 

Recommendation

a.      That four rubber speed cushions (two on each approach) be installed at the bend in Penshurst Street near its intersection with Bryant Street, Beverly Hills.

b.      That the residents who made representations to Council be advised of Council’s decision.

 

Executive Summary

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s approval to install four (4) rubber speed cushions, two (2) on each approach to the bend at the intersection of Penshurst Street and Bryant Street Beverly Hills.

Background

2.      Council has received many complaints from the residents regarding speeding vehicles at the bend in Penshurst Street, where it intersects with Bryant Street, Beverly Hills.

3.      The residents advised that they have witnessed many accidents where cars travelling along the bend fail to slow down and, as a result, some lose control and collide with parked vehicles or other objects on the kerbside. The residents have reported that the situation is worse during wet weather.

4.      To ascertain road safety concerns raised by the resident, the Roads and Maritime Services accident data were reviewed for the five-year period between January 2011 and December 2015. Four (4) accidents were reported with the same rum-code demonstrating the same pattern of accidents where vehicles lose control around the bend and collide with objects and/or parked vehicles on the kerb-side.

5.      To further ascertain the safety concerns, council conducted a comprehensive traffic survey at the bend where speeding has been reported to occur.  A summary of the result of the survey is presented below:

           

6.      As can be seen from the results of the traffic survey, approximately 50% of vehicles are not abiding by the posted speed limit of 50km/h and are speeding at a location where cars should be slowing down to well below the speed limit to be able to negotiate the bend in a safe manner.

7.      Council has installed warning signs in an attempt to slow vehicles travelling around the bend and to advise that it is slippery around the bend; however it seems that most of the vehicles are not taking notice of the warning signs.

8.      It is recommended to install speed cushions at the bend in Penshurst Street where it intersects with Bryant Street, Beverly Hills (outside 213-215 Penshurst Street) as indicated in the map below to improve road safety by reducing the severity of potential accidents at that location.

 

 

Financial Implications

9.      Within budget allocation. Estimated cost of $7,000

Georges River Council – Traffic Advisory Committee Meeting -  Tuesday, 20 December 2016                                   Page 7

Item:                   TAC096-16        Thurlow Street, Riverwood - Request for a 15 Minutes Parking Restriction 

Author:              Senior Traffic Engineer, Shereny Selim

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

 

Recommendation

a.      That the existing ‘½P, 8.30am-6.30PM, Mon-Fri, 8.30am-12.30pm Sat’ parking restriction along the southern side of Thurlow Street, between the Loading Zone and the No Stopping be changed to a ‘15 minutes, 8.30am-9pm Mon-Sun’ restriction.

b.      That 5 of the existing 90 degree ‘½ P 8.30am- 6.30PM, Mon-Fri, 8.30am-12.30pm Sat’ parking restriction along the northern side of Thurlow Street, Riverwood be changed to a ‘15 minutes, 8.30am-9pm Mon-Sun’ parking zone.

c.       That delegated authority be given to the Director of Assets and Infrastructure to allow the implementation of these changes before the Christmas shutdown.

d.      That the shop owners who made representations to Council be advised of Committee’s decision.

 

 

Executive Summary

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s approval to change the existing ‘½ P, 8.30am-6.30pm, Mon-Fri 8.30am-12.30pm Sat’ restriction in Thurlow Street to ‘15 minutes, 8.30am-9pm, Mon-Sun’ to allow quick turnover of parking for local businesses.

Background

2.      Council has received representations from shop owners along the southern side of Thurlow Street, requesting Council to consider changing the existing ½ P restrictions near their shops to 15-minute parking to allow for quick turnover of parking for their customers.

3.      The business owners have advised that their businesses are suffering due to lack of available parking spaces in the vicinity of their shops for the customers. As a result some customers drive away to other shopping strips.

4.      Currently, the following parking restrictions apply along the northern side of Thurlow Street:

a.   5 x ½ P restriction from 8.30am- 6.30PM, Mon-Fri, 8.30am-12.30pm Sat,

b.   6 x 2P restriction from 8.30am-6.30pm, Mon-Fri, 8.30am-12.30pm Sat

c.   18 unrestricted parking spaces

d.   2 disabled parking spaces.

All above parking spaces are oriented as 90 degree angle parking.

5.      Along the southern side of Thurlow Street directly outside the shops, there is a Bus Zone, followed by a Loading Zone, followed by a 23m long ‘½ P restriction  8.30am-6.30pm, Mon-Fri, 8.30am-12.30pm, Sat’ restriction. This restriction is directly outside the frontage of Club Rivers.

6.      The businesses in the area advised Council that due to their close proximity to Club Rivers the short term parking around their businesses is highly coveted by the club patrons.

7.      It is advised that Club Rivers offers 37 off street parking spaces controlled via boom gates for their patrons, in addition, there are in excess of 30 spaces restricted to 2P in Thurlow and Littleton Street, Riverwood, which the patrons can use as the club can be accessed from Littleton Street as well.

8.      The business owners have requested that Council change the ½ P parking restriction along the northern side of Thurlow Street and the ½ P parking restriction along the southern side of Thurlow Street to ¼ P and extend the hours of the restriction up to 9pm from Monday to Sunday to stop drivers with ‘Mobility (disability) Parking Permits’ park in the ½ P zones for longer periods.

9.      Please be advised that according to the current state legislation, drivers with Mobility Parking Permits can park within a ½ P zone for up to 2 hours; most of the patrons of Club Rivers have Mobility Parking Permits and utilise the existing ½ P spaces to park up to 2 hours rendering the purpose of the quick turnover of parking ineffective.

10.    If the parking restriction is changed to 15 minute, drivers with disabled parking permits can only park there for ½ hour improving the quick turnover of parking for businesses in the area.

11.    The Manager of Club Rivers was consulted in regards to the proposed changes and he was not in support of the proposed change, especially for the spaces outside the entrance to the club on Thurlow Street. He has advised that the proposed changes will affect the patrons of the club that use these spaces.

12.    However it is Council’s opinion that the number of time-restricted parking spaces in close proximity to the club that are unaffected by this proposal, in addition to the Club’s off street parking facility, provides ample opportunity for parking for their patrons.

13.    Changing 8 car parking spaces to 15 minutes to allow for quick turnover of parking for the customers of local businesses is seen as “fair” use of on street parking to cater for the demand for on-street in the area.

 

Financial Implications

14.    Within budget allocation – Estimated cost of $500

Item:                   TAC097-16        Tooronga Terrace, Beverly Hills - Road Safety Concerns  

Author:              Senior Traffic Engineer, Shereny Selim

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

 

Recommendation

That the existing raised pedestrian crossing in Tooronga Terrace east of King Georges Road, Beverly Hills be removed due to safety concerns associated with the location of the facility.

 

 

Executive Summary

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s approval to remove the existing raised pedestrian crossing in Tooronga Terrace east of King Georges Road, Beverly Hills.

Background

2.      Council has received representations from residents advising road safety concerns in regards to the existing pedestrian crossing in Tooronga Terrace, east of King Georges Road, Beverly Hills. The residents have advised that they have witnessed many near misses at that crossing as vehicles race to approach the traffic lights at the intersection of King Georges Road and Tooronga Terrace, failing to give-way to pedestrians on the crossing.

3.      To ascertain road safety concerns raised by the residents, the Roads and Maritime Services accident data were reviewed for the 5-year period between January 2011 and December 2015. Two accidents involving pedestrians were recorded at the subject crossing, where it was reported that the pedestrians were injured.

4.      It is advised that the subject pedestrian crossing does not meet the current RMS Technical Direction where it stipulates that pedestrian crossings should not be installed on a four-lane road.

5.      The subject pedestrian crossing is located on a four-lane road; thus it is necessary to install kerb-blisters on both kerb lanes to bring the pedestrian crossing up to current RMS requirements. This in turn will cause major traffic delays during morning and afternoon peak times as the road capacity would be halved in both directions.

6.      It is further advised that there is a signalised pedestrian crossing in Tooronga Terrace at the intersection of King Georges Road and Tooronga Terrace. This facility is located about 50 metres west of the subject pedestrian crossing to allow pedestrians to cross Tooronga Terrace in a safe manner.

7.      Accordingly, in light of the recent complaints from the public and the accident history, it is recommended to remove the existing raised pedestrian crossing in Tooronga Terrace east of King Georges Road as there is a signalised pedestrian crossing approximately 50m west of the subject facility.

 

8.  

 

 

Financial Implications

 

9.      Additional non-budgeted funds of $20,000, from LATM Budget 2017/2018.

Item:                   TAC098-16        Olive Crescent, Peakhurst - Request for a No Parking Restriction  

Author:              Senior Traffic Engineer, Shereny Selim

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

 

Recommendation

a.      That a No Parking restriction be installed at the turning circle of the cul-de-sac in Olive Crescent, Peakhurst.

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

 

 

Executive Summary

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s approval to install a No Parking restriction at the cul-de-sac end of Olive Crescent, Peakhurst.

Background

2.      Council has received representations from the residents of Olive Crescent, Peakhurst in regards to cars parking illegally around the cul-de-sac end of their street, usually at 90 degree angle orientation blocking the sight distance of residents as they try to pull out of their driveway.

3.      Olive Crescent is located east of Bonds Road, Peakhurst measuring 160m in length and 6m in width. It is a no-through road with a cul-de-sac at the eastern end of the street.

4.      It is advised that cul-de-sacs are usually created to allow for safe turning of vehicles in narrow, no-through streets such as Olive Crescent. Accordingly any parking in this area can hinder the purpose of providing a turning area for vehicles to turn safely to exit Olive Crescent.

 

Financial Implications

5.      Within budget allocation – Estimated Cost of $230

Item:                   TAC099-16        Roberts Lane, Allawah – Request to Install a Give-Way Restriction at Lily Street 

Author:              Senior Traffic Engineer, Shereny Selim

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

 

Recommendation

That a Give-Way restriction and associated line marking be installed on Roberts Lane at its intersection with Lily Street, Allawah.

 

 

Executive Summary

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s approval to install a Give-Way restriction on Roberts Lane at its intersection with Lily Street, Allawah

Background

2.      Council has received a representation from Sydney Trains and the residents in regards to road safety concerns at the intersection of Roberts Lane and Lily Street, Allawah.

3.      It has been reported that a number of near misses have occurred at the subject intersection, whereby vehicles on Roberts Lane fail to give-way to vehicles travelling along Lily Street.

4.      To ascertain road safety concerns raised by the resident, the Roads and Maritime Service accident data were reviewed for the 5-year period between January 2010 and December 2014 and three (3) accidents were recorded where vehicles turning from Roberts Lane have collided with vehicles travelling along Lily Street.

5.      It is advised that Road Rules stipulate that at a T- Intersection, the vehicle travelling on the road that ends must give-way to any pedestrians crossing or vehicles travelling on the road that continues unless otherwise signposted.

6.      However, the accident history demonstrates that some motorists do not comply with the above road rule.

7.      Accordingly, it is considered appropriate to install a Give-Way restriction in Roberts Lane, at Lily Street to reinforce the Road Rules.

 

 

Financial Implications

8.      Within budget allocation. Estimated cost is $700.

Item:                   TAC100-16        Lilly Street Allawah – Road Safety Concerns at the Existing Pedestrian Refuge  

Author:              Senior Traffic Engineer, Shereny Selim

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

 

Recommendation

To be determined by the Committee

 

Executive Summary

1.      This report seeks the attention of the members of the Traffic Committee and other stakeholders regarding the road safety concerns raised by Sydney Trains in respect to the existing pedestrian refuge in Lily Street, south of Roberts Lane, Allawah.

Background

2.      Council has received a representation from Sydney Trains after the opening of the upgraded Lilly Street Bridge, raising road safety concerns at the existing pedestrian refuge in Lily Street, near its intersection with Roberts Lane, Allawah.

3.      It is advised that the subject pedestrian refuge was located at this location for many years. It allows pedestrians to cross Lily Street in two stages and is a widely used facility due to its close proximity to Allawah Train Station.

4.      Sydney Trains have advised that the sight distance for pedestrians at the pram ramp on the western side footpath at the subject pedestrian refuge is not sufficient to safely cross the road.

5.      It should be noted that the sight distance for pedestrians at this location has increased with the alignment of the new bridge.

6.      The Roads and Maritime Service accident data were reviewed for the 5-year period between January 2010 and December 2014 (before the commencement of the bridge widening) and no accidents involving pedestrians was recorded at the subject pedestrian refuge.

7.      The “Austroads Guide to Road Design Part 4A” was used to establish the Crossing Sight Distance (CSD) that should be in place at the subject pedestrian refuge.

8.      The CSD can be estimated by using the following equation:

a)   CSD = tc x (V/3.6)  where tc is d/s

b)   V= 85th percentile approach speed = 50km/h

c)   d= distance to cross = 7 (measured from the pram ramp to the refuge)

d)   s = walking speed = 1.13 m/s (Source: Department of Main Roads – Road Planning and Design Manual, Traffic parameters & Human Factors)

e)   tc = critical safe gap (s) = d/s = 7/1.13 = 6.19

 

Accordingly, CSD = 86m

 

9.      A CSD of 86 metres would be hard to establish at the existing pedestrian refuge as this measurement extends over the bridge to the other side of Railway Parade.

10.    It is further advised that Transdev run the 947 bus-service with the only accessible bus stop at Allawah Train Station located on the western side of Lily Street, where the subject pedestrian refuge is located.

11.    It should be noted that the recently upgraded traffic lights at the intersection of Lily Street, Railway Parade and Elizabeth Street does not provide a pedestrian crossing on the Lily Street approach. Thus the subject refuge island is the only facility available to assist pedestrians to cross Lily Street in the vicinity of the train station.

 

 

 

 

Financial Implications

12.    No budget impact for this report.

Item:                   TAC101-16        Berrille Road, Narwee - Request for a No Parking Restriction 

Author:              Traffic Engineer, Ben Liddell

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

 

Recommendation

(a)     That an 18.5 metre long ‘No Parking, 6am – 10am Fridays’ restriction be installed on the eastern side of the cul-de-sac of Berrille Road, Narwee.

(b)     That all the residents of Berrille Road, Narwee be advised of Council’s decision.

 

Executive Summary

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s approval to install a No Parking restriction on the eastern side of the cul-de-sac of Berrille Road, Narwee.

 

Background

2.      The Georges River Traffic Advisory Committee, at its meeting on 7 April 2016, considered a report to install a 47 metre long ‘No Parking’ restriction within the confines of the cul-de-sac on Berrille Road, Narwee. The Traffic Advisory Committee recommended the following:

THAT a 47-metres long No Parking restriction be installed within the confines of the cul-de-sac on Berrille Road in consultation with the affected residents.

 

FURTHER THAT the residents be advised of Council’s decision.”

 

3.      Council has undertaken public consultation with residents immediately affected by the proposed No Parking restriction. Council letter dropped 4 residents within the cul-de-sac and provided one week for residents to reply.

4.      Council received 3 responses with 2 respondents not supporting the proposal and 1 resident suggesting an alternative solution.

5.      Respondents provided concerns regarding the removal of on-street parking within Berrille Road.

6.      Accordingly it is recommended that an 18.5 metre long ‘No Parking, 6am – 10am Fridays’ restriction be installed on the eastern side of the cul-de-sac of Berrille Road, Narwee to allow the collection of rubbish bins while still allowing on-street parking.

 

Financial Implications

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

Background

2.      Council has received a representation from a resident raising road safety concerns at the intersection of Park Street, Rona Street and Lilydale Avenue, Peakhurst.

3.      The resident states that vehicles are constantly parking adjacent to the double centre lines on Rona Street and Lilydale Avenue which forces motorists to cross the double centre lines.

4.      There is approximately 27 metres of double centre lines on Park Street, 20 metres of double centre lines on Rona Street and 15 metres of double centre lines on Lilydale Avenue.

5.      The Georges River Traffic Advisory Committee, at its meeting on 7 June 2016, considered a report to install give-way signage and linemarking at the intersection. The Traffic Advisory Committee recommended the following:

“That Give-Way signage and appropriate linemarking be installed across Park Street at its intersection with Rona Street/Lilydale Avenue, Peakhurst, as shown on the plan in this report.

Further that Mr David Coleman MP, Member for Banks, be advised of Council’s decision.

6.      According to NSW Road Rule 208 (6), if the road has a continuous dividing line or a dividing strip, the driver must position the vehicle at least 3 metres from the continuous dividing line or dividing strip, unless otherwise indicated by information on or with a parking control sign.

7.      Accordingly it is recommended that the linemarking be adjusted and that no stopping signage be installed to reinforce NSW Road Rule 208(6) as per the attached plan.

 

Financial Implications

Item:                   TAC104-16        Oatley Parade, Oatley - Proposed "No Parking" zone - UBD 293 B13 

Author:              Traffic Engineer, Paul Croft

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

 

Recommendation

(a)     That a 4m “No Parking, Motorcycles Excepted” zone be installed on the western side of Oatley Parade, as shown on plan TC1574.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed installation of a “No Parking” zone in Oatley Parade, Oatley.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received a request from a local resident to investigate the possibility of installing parking restriction signs between the driveways of numbers 24 and 26 Oatley Parade.  Parking in this location is heavily utilised due to commuters accessing Oatley Train Station and Oatley Memorial Gardens.

3.      There is 4.2m between the driveways of numbers 24 and 26 Oatley Parade. Council has been advised that vehicles are parking in this area and restricting vehicular access to these driveways. 

4.      In accordance with “Australian Standards 2890.1 – 2004”, the design length of an average car is 4.91m.  As the distance between the driveways is 4.2m, there is insufficient space to allow a standard car to park legally.

 

5.      The resident has provided Council with photographs of vehicles parking in the area between the driveways and blocking driveway access on a regular basis.  These are shown below in paragraphs 6, 7 and 8.

(a)     That 6m of the existing unrestricted zone on the southern side of Carwar Avenue, be converted to “1/2P, 8.30am – 6pm Mon – Fri, 8.30am – 12.30pm Sat”, as shown on plan TC1568 Sheet 1, attached to the report.

(b)     That 13m of the existing unrestricted zone on the southern side of Currawang Street, be converted to “1/2P, 8.30am – 6pm Mon – Fri, 8.30am – 12.30pm Sat”, as shown on plan TC1568 Sheet 2, attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the proposed installation of “1/2P” zones in Carwar Avenue and Currawang Street, Carss Park.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received correspondence from a local business owner to investigate the possibility of installing short term parking in Carwar Avenue and Currawang Street, Carss Park.

3.      Currently, the areas identified by the business owner are unrestricted parking and as a result vehicles have been observed to be parking all day adjacent to the businesses in Carwar Avenue and Currawang Street.

 

4.      The owner has requested short term parking zones to increase the vehicle turnover during the day for the businesses.

Proposal

5.      Following investigation of this request, it is proposed to convert 6m of the existing unrestricted zone on the southern side of Carwar Avenue to “1/2P, 8.30am – 6pm Mon – Fri, 8.30am – 12.30pm Sat”.

 

6.      It is also proposed to convert 13m of the existing unrestricted zone on the southern side of Currawang Street to “1/2P, 8.30am – 6pm Mon – Fri, 8.30am – 12.30pm Sat” to assist the businesses with an increase in vehicle turnover in these locations.

 

7.      Businesses and residents in this vicinity have been notified by letter of the proposed installation of the “1/2P” zones.  The closing date for submissions was 18 November 2016.  No objections were received.

Item:                   TAC106-16        Connells Point Road, Connells Point - Proposed Line Marking - UBD 293 H15 

Author:              Traffic Engineer, Paul Croft

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

 

Recommendation

(a)     That an edge line and centreline with Raised Reflective Pavement Markers (RRPM’s) be painted in Connells Point Road, near the intersection with Queens Road.

(b)     That the existing centreline in Connells Point Road, south of Queens Road, be realigned and rumble bars installed on the centreline and edge line.

(c)     That a “No Stopping” zone be installed on the southern corner of Connells Point Road, as shown on plan TC1569 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for proposed line marking in Connells Point Road near the intersection with Queens Road, Connells Point.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received a request from a local resident to investigate the vehicle turning movements at the intersection of Connells Point Road and Queens Road, Connells Point.

3.      Due to the large area of the intersection and existing line marking, vehicles have been observed travelling through the intersection at high speed, creating a safety risk for road users.

 

4.      The Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) Crash data for the last 5 years indicates that there has been one (1) recorded crash near the intersection of Connells Point Road and Queens Road. This was reported as Road User Movement (RUM) Code 60 into a parked car.

 

Proposal

 

5.      Upon investigation of this request, Council is proposing to paint new edge lines and a centreline in Connells Point Road near Queens Road.  Narrowing the travel lane would assist in reducing vehicle speeds.

 

6.      Council is also proposing a realignment of the existing centreline and the installation of rumble bars in the southern section of Connells Point Road to prevent drivers cutting across the intersection onto the incorrect side of the road.  Rumble bars are also proposed on the southern edge of the intersection to improve the vehicle travel paths in this location.

 

7.      To improve the sight distance for turning vehicles at the intersection, “No Stopping” signs are also required to be installed on the southern corner of Connells Point Road.

 

Comments

8.      Section 2.2.2 of “Australian Standards 2890.5 – 1993 On – Street Parking”, states that the minimum parallel parking space width shall be 2.1m.  This is for street parking comprising of cars and light commercial vehicles, where the parking of wide vehicles is unlikely and where a continuously marked narrow parking lane will aid traffic flow.  The submitted design has a parking lane width of a minimum 2.3m and complies with the Standards.

 

9.      The RMS “Road Design Guide” requires a minimum travel lane width of 3m and the submitted design also complies with this requirement.

 

10.    The residents in the vicinity have been notified by letter of the proposed changes near the intersection. The closing date for submissions was 2 December 2016.  No objections were received and three (3) residents were in strong support of the changes.

 

Financial Implications

 

11.    Within budget allocation – RMS’s Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $3,500.

Item:                   TAC107-16        Russell Lane, South Hurstville - Proposed Sign Changes - UBD 293 P10 

Author:              Traffic Engineer, Paul Croft

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

 

Recommendation

(a)     That the existing “No Parking, 8am – 9.30am, 3pm – 4pm, School Days” zone on the southern side of Russell Lane, adjacent to St Raphael’s Catholic Primary School, be converted to “No Parking, 8am – 9.30am, 2.30pm – 4pm, School Days”.

(b)     That “School Drop Off, Pick Up Zone” fluoro signage be installed to complement the existing “No Parking” zone on the southern side of Russell Lane, as shown on plan TC1576 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for proposed sign changes in Russell Lane, South Hurstville adjacent to St Raphael’s Catholic Primary School.

Background

2.      Council has been requested by the Principal of St Raphael’s Catholic Primary School to consider the installation of supplementary “School Drop Off, Pick Up Zone” fluoro signage above the existing “No Parking” school zone signs in Russell Lane.

 

3.      The NSW Centre for Road Safety has a Drop-off and Pick-up Initiative that provides parents and carers with a safe environment to drop-off and collect their children from school by car.

 

4.      The Drop-off and Pick-up initiative uses existing “No Parking” areas at schools. The areas, always on the school side of the road, provide convenience for drivers and enhance children’s safety.  Parents and carers are able to legally drop-off or pick up their children within a two minute timeframe, while a volunteer adult supervisor assists the children into or out of the car.

5.      A Drop-off and Pick-up initiative has advantages for child road safety because it:

 

·        Provides a designated zone at a school access point for drivers to stop and drop-off or pick-up their children

·        Relieves traffic congestion around the school by ensuring cars do not park illegally

·        Provides adult supervision for students being dropped off and picked up from school by car

·        Allows smaller children to remain secured in the car while school age children are dropped off and picked up from school

·        Reinforces road safety messages and safe passenger behaviours to parents and children

 

6.      Schools are encouraged to consider implementing the initiative to enhance child safety and need to:

 

·        Ensure their school community supports the initiative

·        Consult with the local council to determine if the school environment is suitable for the initiative to operate

·        Establish a roster of volunteers to be zone supervisors

·        Develop policies and procedures to administer the initiative

·        Fully understand all issues regarding liability in respect of students and volunteers

 

7.      Drop-off & Pick-up zones encourage the children to keep road safety rules in mind.  The system also teaches the children co-operation and patience as they wait their turn and are then called by an adult.

 

8.      The Principal contacted Council to support their request for the Drop-off and Pick-up initiative to operate at their school and for the supplementary “School Drop-Off, Pick-Up Zone” signs to be installed along Russell Lane.  The school already operates the Drop-off and Pick-up zone with adult supervisors to improve traffic flow and safety.

 

9.      To maintain consistency with the times on the parking restriction signs in Russell Lane, the Principal has requested that Council modify all signage adjacent to the school to read as “No Parking, 8am – 9.30am, 2.30pm – 4pm, School Days”.  Some of the signage in Russell Lane is signposted as “No Parking, 8am – 9.30am, 3pm – 4pm, School Days” and is not consistent during the afternoon period, leading to confusion for parents.

 

Financial Implications

 

10.    Within budget allocation – RMS’s Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $400.

3.      The resident stated there had been numerous accidents and requested that Rawson Street become one way towards Rocky Point Road between The Promenade and Rawson Lane, Sans Souci.

 

Comments

4.      Following investigation by Council officers, it is proposed to install a “Road Narrows” advisory sign on the southern side of Rawson Street, facing east, adjacent to 4 Rawson Street, Sans Souci, to provide clarity of the road conditions.

5.      An investigation of RMS accident data shows no recorded accidents at this location. St George Local Police have identified one major crash in November 2016.

Recommendation

(a)     That a 6m dividing barrier line with yellow Raised Reflective Pavement Markers (RRPM’s) be installed in Grove Avenue, Hurstville Grove north of the existing traffic island adjacent to 77B Hurstville Road.

(b)     That a 6.5m dividing barrier line with yellow Raised Reflective Pavement Markers (RRPM’s) be installed in Grove Avenue, Hurstville Grove south of the existing traffic island adjacent to 77B Hurstville Road.

(c)     That a “Give Way” sign and associated 18m holding line be installed in Grove Avenue, at the intersection with Hurstville Road, Hurstville Grove, as shown on the plan TC1571 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

1.      This report seeks the Committees consideration of the proposed installation of line marking and “Give Way” signage in Grove Avenue, at the intersection of Hurstville Road, Hurstville Grove.

 

Background

2.      Council has received representations from a resident to investigate the intersection of Grove Avenue and Hurstville Road in regards to the safety of the intersection and turning movements of vehicles.

 

Comments

3.      Following investigations by Council officers, it is proposed to install a 6.5m dividing barrier line with yellow RRPM’s at 1m intervals, south of the existing island on Grove Avenue and to install a 6m dividing barrier line with yellow RRPM’s at 1m intervals, north of the existing island. This is to deter people from cutting across the intersection when turning from Hurstville Road. This would lead to an improvement in vehicle turning movements and safety at the intersection.

4.      It is also proposed to install an 18m holding line and the associated “Give Way” signage at the intersection of Grove Avenue and Hurstville Road to provide a delineation line where drivers exiting Grove Avenue can safely stop and see passing vehicle before entering Hurstville Road.

5.      The residents in this vicinity have been notified by letter of the proposed installation of line marking and “Give Way” signage in Grove Avenue at the intersection of Hurstville Road. The closing date for submissions was Friday, 2 December 2016. No objections were received.

 

Financial Implications

Author:              Assistant Traffic Engineer, Samuel Lindsay

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

 

Recommendation

(a)     That the current “No Stopping” zone on the western side of Bowns Road, adjacent to 19 Bowns Road, Kogarah, be moved 13m north as shown on the plan TC1572 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed relocation of the existing “No Stopping” zone by 13m north, on the western side of Bowns Road, adjacent to 19 Bowns Road, Kogarah.

 

Background

2.      A request has been received from a resident of Bowns Road to consider the relocation of the existing “No Stopping” zone on the western side of Bowns Road, so that it does not cover the driveways of 17 and 19 Bowns Road, allowing them to pick-up and drop-off passengers in this location.

3.      There is currently a 28m “No Stopping” zone on the western side of Bowns Road from the intersection of High Street, followed by a “2P, 6am-6pm, Mon-Fri, Authorised Residents Vehicles Excepted” zone.

 

Comments

4.      Following investigations by Council officers, it is proposed to relocate the existing “No Stopping” zone on the western side of Bowns Road 13m north, thereby extending the existing “2P, 6am-6pm, Mon-Fri, Authorised Residents Vehicles Excepted” zone.

5.      The residents in this vicinity have been notified by letter of the proposed relocation of the “No Stopping” zone on the western side of Bowns Road. The closing date for submissions was Friday, 2 December 2016. No objections were received.

Author:              Assistant Traffic Engineer, Samuel Lindsay

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

 

Recommendation

(a)     That an 18m “No Parking” zone be installed on the northern side of West Street, between the driveways of 222 and 224 West Street, Carlton as shown on the plan TC1573 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the proposed installation of an 18m “No Parking” zone to be installed on the northern side of West Street, between the driveways of 222 and 224 West Street, Carlton.

 

Background

2.      A request has been received from a resident of West Street to consider parking restrictions on the bend of West Street, Carlton, to improve safety and increase sight distance in this location. There is currently unrestricted parking on both sides of West Street in this location.

 

Comments

3.      Following investigations by Council officers, it was found that the road narrows on approach to the bend. When vehicles are parked in this location, vehicles travelling eastbound are pushed towards oncoming traffic. It is therefore proposed to install an 18m “No Parking” zone on the northern side of West Street, between the driveways of 222 and 224 West Street. This will improve safety at this location.

4.      The residents and businesses in the vicinity have been notified by letter of the proposed installation of the “No Parking” zone. The closing date for submissions was Friday, 2 December 2016. No objections were received.

 

Financial Implications

5.      Within budget allocation – RMS’s Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $300

Item:                   TAC112-16        Oatley Avenue, Oatley - Proposed Pedestrian Refuge - 293 C12 

Author:              Assistant Traffic Engineer, Samuel Lindsay

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

 

Recommendation

(a)     That a pedestrian refuge with associated line marking and signage be installed on Oatley Avenue, adjacent to the intersection of Frederick Street, Oatley, in accordance with the RMS Technical Direction.

(b)     That the existing “No Stopping” zone on the northern side of Frederick Street, west of the intersection of Oatley Avenue, Oatley, be increased by 3m, as shown on plan U547 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed installation of a pedestrian refuge, associated line marking and signage on Oatley Avenue, near the intersection of Frederick Street, Oatley.

Background

2.      A request has been received from a local resident to consider the installation of a marked pedestrian crossing on Oatley Avenue, near the intersection of Frederick Street, to provide a safe location for people to cross the road when walking between Oatley CBD and Oatley Railway Station.

3.      The Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) Guidelines indicate the warrants for a pedestrian crossing. These are contained in the “Australian Standard Supplement – AS1742 “Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices” document. The warrants are as follows:

·    In each of three separate one hour periods in a typical day;

a)   The pedestrian flow per hour (P) crossing the road is greater than or equal to 30 AND

b)   The vehicular flow per hour (V) through the site is greater than or equal to 500 AND

c)   The product PV is greater than or equal to 60,000

 

Investigation

4.      Council’s Assistant Traffic Engineer conducted a pedestrian and vehicle count in Oatley Avenue near Frederick Street on Friday 4 November 2016. The results of the count are detailed in the table below:

 

TIME

PEDESTRIANS (P)

VEHICLES (V)

PV

47,616

 

 

Comments

5.      As can be seen in the table above, the figures do not meet the RMS warrants for a pedestrian crossing to be installed in Oatley Avenue, near the intersection of Frederick Street. However due to the high number of pedestrians crossing in this location it is proposed to consider the installation of a pedestrian refuge.

6.      The installation of a pedestrian refuge on Oatley Avenue would improve safety for people crossing the road and would also assist in restricting the movements of vehicles driving through the intersection, further improving the safety for the community.

7.      The residents and businesses in the vicinity of the intersection have been notified by letter of the proposed installation of a pedestrian refuge at the intersection of Oatley Avenue and Frederick Street. The closing date for submissions was Friday 2 December 2016. No objections were received.

 

Financial Implications

 

8.      Additional non-budgeted funds of $30,000 from Capital Works Budget 2017/18.
