Item:                   TAC087-17        Ruby Street Hurstville - Review of Parking Restrictions 

Author:              Traffic Engineer, Ben Liddell

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

Recommendation

(a)     That the “No Stopping” restrictions along Ruby Street, Hurstville as shown in the attached plan be approved.

(b)     That the removal of double centrelines along Ruby Street, Hurstville as shown in the attached plan be approved.

(c)     Further that Mr Chris Minns MP, Member for Kogarah be advised of Council’s decision.

 

 

Executive Summary

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration to install “No Stopping” restrictions along Ruby Street as per the attached signage plan.

 

Background

2.      Council received representation from Mr Chris Minns MP, Member for Kogarah, on behalf of his constituents requesting Council to install a clearway along Ruby Street during peak hours to alleviate traffic congestion.

3.      Residents have raised concerns regarding the width of Ruby Street between Dora Street and Gloucester Road who believe the street is too narrow to allow parking on both sides.

4.      Ruby Street is a local street that is 720 metres long and runs between King Georges Road and Patrick Street. The width of Ruby Street varies between 8.7 metres and 12.5 metres.

5.      Ruby Street intersects with seven local streets, one state controlled road and has roundabouts installed at the Gloucester Road, Carrington Avenue and Dora Street intersections.

6.      The width of Ruby Street between Dora Street and Gloucester Road is 9 metres at the narrowest point. The existing roundabouts have painted islands and double centrelines that extend approximately 37 metres along Ruby Street. The existing line marking prevents residents legally parking adjacent to the double centrelines as per Australian Road Rule 208 (6).

7.      The proposed “No Stopping” restrictions will also provide the required sight distances for pedestrians using the refuges at the existing roundabouts.

8.      Accordingly it is recommended that the proposed “No Stopping” restrictions and line marking changes shown in the attached plan be approved by the Traffic Committee.   

    

Financial Implications

 

9.      Within budget allocation. RMS Traffic Facility Grant - Approximately $4000

Item:                   TAC088-17        52 Mulga Road Oatley - Request for a Works Zone 

Author:              Traffic Engineer, Ben Liddell

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

Recommendation

(a)     That a 12 metre long “Works Zone 7am – 5pm, Monday to Saturday” be installed adjacent to 52 Mulga Road, Oatley for a duration of 42 weeks, provided that the applicant pay the necessary fees and charges in accordance with Council’s adopted Schedule of Fees and Charges for 2017-18.

 

(b)     Further that the applicant be advised of Council’s decision.

 

Executive Summary

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s approval to establish a 12 metre long “Works Zone” adjacent to 52 Mulga Road, Oatley for a period of 42 weeks.

 

Background

2.      Council has received an application from Rawson Homes Pty Ltd requesting Council to establish a 12 metre long “Works Zone” adjacent to 52 Mulga Road, Oatley for a period of 42 weeks.

 

3.      Currently, on-street parking at this location is regulated by “1/2 P, 8:30am-6pm Mon-Fri, 8:30am-4pm Sat” parking. The proposed “Works Zone” will replace approximately two parking spaces.

 

4.      The applicant claims that a “Works Zone” at the above location is necessary to safely unload construction materials as the demand for on-street parking in Mulga Road is high due to the nearby shops.

 

5.      Accordingly, it is recommended to approve a 12 metre long “Works Zone” adjoining the abovementioned construction site to ensure unhindered access for construction related vehicles to the site.

 

Financial Implications

6.      Within budget allocation. RMS Traffic Facility Grant - Approximately $300

Item:                   TAC089-17        Ethel Lane Carlton - Traffic Concerns 

Author:              Traffic Engineer, Paul Croft

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

(a)     To be determined by the Committee.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration on the traffic issues in Ethel Lane, Carlton.

Background

 

2.      This matter was raised at the July meeting of the Traffic Advisory Committee, however the resident was unavailable to attend the meeting and the report was deferred.

 

3.      Council has received correspondence from a resident in Botany Street, Carlton raising road safety concerns in Ethel Lane. 

 

4.      A report on this issue was presented at the 4 December 2014 meeting of the Traffic Advisory Committee which included a Road Safety Audit, traffic surveys and a parking survey in Botany Street and Ethel Lane. 

 

5.      To address the road safety concerns, Council engaged an accredited Road Safety Auditor to identify all pedestrian and traffic related road safety issues in Ethel Lane and Botany Street.  The Audit was conducted in accordance with the “RMS Guidelines for Road Safety Audit Practice” and the “Austroads Guide to Road Safety – Part 6” documents.

 

6.      Council undertook a comprehensive traffic survey on Botany Street and Ethel Lane to establish the traffic conditions in the area.  Council also undertook a parking survey to ascertain the residents’ concerns regarding lack of on-street parking in Botany Street.

 

Road Safety Audit Findings

 

7.      Ethel Lane is a narrow lane which facilitates access to many residential properties in the area bounded by Xenia Avenue, Botany Street, Forest Road, Lily Street and Durham Street. It is about 4.5 metres wide between kerbs, with narrow shoulders on either side of varying width.  Ethel Lane runs from the intersection of Xenia Avenue and Ethel Street adjacent to Sydney Technical High School, across Botany Street, Cronulla Lane, Cronulla Street and Lily Lane to Lily Street, where it ends in a T-junction. A steep upgrade exists along the lane from near Cronulla Lane to Lily Street. A short section at the east end is covered by a 40km/h School Zone; however most of the lane is under the general urban speed limit.

 

8.      On site observations by the Auditors showed Ethel lane to be used by low volumes of vehicles and moderate volumes of pedestrians, most of which are generated by the nearby schools (Sydney Technical High, Hurstville Primary and Hurstville High).

 

9.      The Road Safety Audit reported that there was a moderate pedestrian usage of Ethel Lane both before and after school. This included students from Sydney Technical High School, who walked either alone or in small groups, and low volumes of primary school age children attending Hurstville Public School who were all accompanied by adults.

 

10.    Intersection of Ethel Lane and Botany Street

A gate to Sydney Technical High School is located on the northern corner. Botany Street has 3.65 metre wide footpaths on both sides which assist sight distances for motorists waiting at the stop signs, and sign posted No Stopping on each leg of the intersection helps keep the corners clear, which ensures good visibility and enhances safety. Short sections of double centre lines exist in Botany Street, which helps highlight the intersection to motorists travelling along Botany Street. There were no road safety deficiencies identified at this location.

 

11.    Intersection of Ethel Lane and Cronulla Lane

Due to the narrow width of both Ethel Lane and Cronulla Lane and boundary fences on 3 of the 4 corners, sight distances at this intersection are poor. A raised threshold style speed bump is located in Cronulla Lane immediately south of the intersection which highlights the intersection to through traffic along Cronulla Lane and helps to reduce any excessive speeds.

 

The stop signs facing both directions of Ethel Lane are justified by the poor sight distances and observations showed that provided appropriate care and patience are used, motorists can negotiate the intersection safely. This requires moving slowly forward from the stop line to improve sight distance before crossing the intersection.

 

A relatively new residential building is located on the North West corner and a splayed corner has been provided as shown in the following photograph. This assists sight distance on that corner significantly and although there may be limited future opportunities to do the same thing on other corners, Council should consider requiring any future redevelopment of corner properties to provide a similar splay. Other than these possible future corner splays to improve the poor sight distances there were no road safety deficiencies identified at this location.

 

12.    Intersection of Ethel Lane and Cronulla Street

Cronulla Street is of similar dimensions and with similar traffic characteristics as Botany Street. It’s wide footpaths and road width provide good sight distances for motorists waiting at the stop signs in Ethel Lane. No Stopping restrictions are located only on the east side of Cronulla Street on both sides of Ethel Lane, because of the steep upgrade in Ethel Lane on that side of the intersection. These restrictions help provide good visibility along Cronulla Street. There were no road safety deficiencies identified at this location.

 

13.    Intersection of Ethel Lane and Lily Lane

Lily Lane is of similar narrow dimensions to Cronulla Lane and consequently there is also poor sight distance for motorists in all directions. However the Audit’s observations showed that provided appropriate care and patience are used, motorists can negotiate the intersection safely. There were no road safety deficiencies identified at this location.

 

 

 

14.    Intersection of Ethel Lane and Lily Street

Lily Street is 12.8 metres wide kerb to kerb with 3.65 metre wide footpaths on both sides, which provides motorists exiting Ethel Lane with reasonably good sight distances. It was noted that Ethel Lane is on a slight up grade and that at school pick up times parked cars encroached within the 10 metre statutory No Stopping distance, which reduced visibility for motorists using Ethel Lane. This was exacerbated by a utility service box on the south side.

Due to the higher traffic volumes and speeds along Lily Street compared to other nearby residential streets, the auditor recommended the installation of 10 metre No Stopping signs in Lily Street on both sides of Ethel Lane.  This was completed by Council in early 2015.

 

15.    STOP signs in Ethel Lane

Each intersection along Ethel Lane is controlled by STOP signs. STOP signs are normally reserved for intersections which have poor safety records or factors which require motorists to stop before proceeding. In the case of Ethel Lane, the poor sight distances at Cronulla Lane, Lily Lane, Lily Street and Xenia Avenue justify the use of STOP signs.

 

The justification for STOP signs at Botany Street and Cronulla Street is lower however the STOP signs also serve as a deterrent to potential through traffic users (rat-runners) who may otherwise use Ethel Lane, creating higher volumes and speeds.

 

The Road Safety Audit concluded that the existing STOP sign controls along Ethel Lane are appropriate and should not be altered.

 

16.    Potential One-Way Traffic

As part of the Road Safety Audit report, the assessors were requested to consider whether one-way traffic being introduced into Ethel Lane could improve road safety.

 

On site observations showed that on the few occasions that vehicles travelled in opposite directions at the same time, they had no difficulty passing each other and did so at appropriate speeds. There was no physical impediment to two way traffic.

 

There are known disadvantages to one-way traffic and it is generally accepted that there needs to be significant potential advantages before one way traffic is introduced.

 

The usual advantages are to reduce congestion in a traffic network (eg. in a CBD) or to address an accident record relating to two way traffic. The Road Safety Audit noted that there is no congestion or accident record which could be reduced by one-way traffic in Ethel Lane.

 

The disadvantages of introducing a one way restriction include:

•   Speeds increase in one-way streets;

•   Increased speeds reduce pedestrian safety and increase risks for resident’s use of driveways / garages;

•   It forces motorists into round-the-block movements, adding to driver frustration and increasing turning movements at nearby intersections;

•   It is inconvenient for many residents; and the inconvenience usually leads to occasional illegal driving against the one-way flow, significantly increasing crash potential.

 

 

 

 

Implemented Works

 

17.    Existing “Give Way” restrictions on Ethel Lane at all intersecting streets have been converted to “STOP” signs and statutory 10m “No Stopping” signs were installed in Botany Street and Lily Street at their intersection with Ethel Lane.

 

18.    The resident has made representations that the traffic measures implemented were ineffective and as a result, safety of residents and motorists is still being compromised. The resident is requesting that Council investigate the traffic issues being experienced in Ethel Lane and make changes to improve the safety.

 

Resident Concerns

 

19.    The resident turns from Botany Street into Ethel Lane and if there are vehicles travelling eastbound along the lane they are required to reverse back onto Botany Street.

 

20.    When garbage trucks use the lanes on collection days, there is insufficient width to allow two-way vehicle flow and the resident has encountered many near misses with the truck at the intersections along Ethel Lane.

 

21.    The resident is requesting that Ethel Lane and Cronulla Lane be converted to one-way with vehicles entering Ethel Lane from Botany Street (westbound direction) and Cronulla Lane exiting onto Durham Street (southbound direction).

 

Financial Implications

 

22.    No budget impact for this report.

(b)     That a Traffic Management Plan be submitted to the Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) for their approval prior to the festival.

(c)     That the Oatley Lions Club be advised of Council’s decision.

 

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of a request for the temporary closure of streets in Oatley for the Oatley Village Festival.

 

Background

 

2.      The Lions Club of Oatley Inc. has requested Council’s permission to hold the annual Oatley Village Festival on Saturday, 21 October, 2017.  This festival is a popular community event that promotes local community organisations and provides an opportunity to raise funds for a wide variety of projects.  The event has been running for over forty years.

 

Festival Arrangements

 

3.      As in previous years, the festival will be held within the barricaded areas of Frederick Street and Oatley Avenue and the adjoining Memorial Gardens in Oatley, as indicated on the Oatley Lions Village Festival Plan, attached to this report.  Public transport authorities using the Oatley area are advised weeks in advance of the event that road closures will be in place and alternate routes will be made available for use around the festival area.

 

4.      Frederick Street (between Letitia Street and Oatley Parade) and a section of Oatley Avenue is proposed to be closed to vehicular traffic from 6.30am until 5.30pm on
21 October 2017 to allow for the safe movement of pedestrians attending the festival.

 

5.      Council will supply the barricades and road closure signage to the Lions Club of Oatley Inc. prior to the event and these will be erected and removed by the State Emergency Services (SES) on the day of the festival.

 

 

 

Comments

 

6.      The event would be classified as a Class 2 Event according to the “Guide to Traffic and Transport Management for Special Events”, and as such a Traffic Management Plan will be required to be submitted to the Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) for their approval prior to the event.  This plan will be prepared in accordance with the RMS document “Procedures for use in the Preparation of a Traffic Management Plan.”

Item:                   TAC091-17        Bellevue Parade Carlton - Proposed No Stopping restrictions 

Author:              Traffic Engineer, Paul Croft

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

(a)     That “No Stopping” zones be installed in Blakesley Road and Bellevue Parade near PJ Ferry Reserve, Allawah.

(b)     That the redundant bus shelter and driveway on the northern side of Blakesley Road, adjacent to PJ Ferry Reserve, be removed, as shown on plan TC1602 attached to the report.

 

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed installation of “No Stopping” zones near PJ Ferry Reserve, Carlton.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received a request from a local resident to consider the installation of restricted parking zones near PJ Ferry Reserve to improve the turning movements and safety in this location.

 

3.      There is a community hall within the grounds of PJ Ferry Reserve and when there is an event, vehicles are parked along Blakesley Road and Bellevue Parade in close proximity to the roundabout and dividing barrier lines.

 

Proposal

 

4.      Upon investigation of this request, it is proposed to install “No Stopping” zones in Blakesley Road and Bellevue Parade near PJ Ferry Reserve and the roundabout.  This would prevent people parking too close to the roundabout, leading to an improvement in vehicle movements.

 

5.      The “No Stopping” signs would also enforce the parking requirements of NSW Road Rule 208 (6), which states that drivers must position their vehicle at least 3 metres from any dividing line on the roadway.

 

6.      The proposed removal of the redundant bus shelter and driveway crossing would provide additional parking areas along Blakesley Road for people accessing the park and function center.

 

7.      The residents in this vicinity have been notified by letter of the proposed “No Stopping” zones.  The closing date for submissions was 28 July 2017. No objections were received and Council received one phone call in support of the changes.

 

 

Financial Implications

 

8.      Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $5,000.

Item:                   TAC092-17        Loville Avenue Peakhurst heights - Kerb realignment and installation of No Stopping 

Author:              Senior Traffic Engineer, Shereny Selim

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That a 20m “No Stopping” zone be is installed on the southern side of Loville Avenue from its intersection with Bayview Road to the start of the vehicular crossing at 4 Loville Avenue, Peakhurst.

 

 

Executive Summary

1.      This report seeks the committee’s consideration to install a 20m “No stopping” restriction along the southern side of Loville Avenue to accommodate for the road narrowing at this location due to kerb extension.

 

Background

 

2.      Council assets section is proposing to realign the southern kerb line of Loville Avenue by extending the footpath, kerb and gutter to accommodate a large and well established tree roots.

3.      The realignment of the kerb would result in adjustment to the kerb from the start of the layback of No. 2 Loville Avenue Peakhurst, extending 1m into the road at the tree and adjusting the kerb return coming around from Bayview to suit new alignment past the tree.

 

 

4.      Due to the above realignment. Loville Avenue’s carriageway would be narrowed to 5.85m as shown in the above diagram.

 

5.   Accordingly the southern side of Loville Avenue would have to be restricted to “No Stopping” as any parked vehicles at this location would completely block that section of the road.

6.     

 

Financial Implications

7.      Within budget allocation. RMS Traffic Facility Grant – Approximately $300

Item:                   TAC093-17        Greenlands Avenue Peakhurst - Change No Parking to No Stopping  

Author:              Senior Traffic Engineer, Shereny Selim

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That “No Stopping” at all times be installed in place of the existing “No Parking, 8.00am -9.30am, 2.30-4.00pm”, around the bends in Greenlands Avenue, Peakhurst.

 

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the traffic committee’s approval to replace the existing “No Parking 8am-9:30am, 2.30pm-4.00pm” on both sides of Greenlands Avenue, at its bend.

 

Background

 

2.      Council received representation in regards to traffic congestion and illegal parking near neighbours’ driveways in particular around the bend in Greenlands Avenue.

 

3.      Outside numbers 29 and 30 Greenlands Avenue, Peakhurst there are “No Parking, 8.00am -9.30am, 2.30-4.00pm” restriction while the rest of Greenlands Avenue is unrestricted. 

 

4.      The purpose of the installed “No parking” restriction around the bend in Greenlands Avenue was to delineate the section as “No Parking” so as to prevent congestion at this location and not block neighbours driveways.

 

5.      However, upon investigation it has been noted that the installation of the “No Parking”  has had an opposite effect, whereby parents felt that this was a location to stand their vehicle while they go collect their children from the school.

 

6.      Accordingly it was requested that the “No Parking” be changed to “No Stopping”

 

7.      The idea of installing “No Stopping” at the bend in Greenlands Avenue has the advantage of keeping an area clear for parents to be able to manoeuvre in and out of Greenlands Avenue in a safe manner when dropping off or picking up their children.

 

8.      Accordingly it is recommended to install “No Stopping” at all times in place of the existing “No Parking, 8.00am -9.30am, 2.30-4.00pm”, around the bend in Greenlands Avenue.

 

 

 

Financial Implications

Item:                   TAC094-17        Queens Road Connells Point - Proposed Parking Restrictions 

Author:              Traffic Engineer, Paul Croft

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

(a)     That a 50m “No Stopping” zone be installed on the northern side of Queens Road, adjacent to the hedge.

(b)     That the existing “No Parking” zone in the cul-de-sac of the access road off Queens Road, be converted to “No Parking, 5am – 3pm, Wed”, as shown on plan TC1607 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed parking changes in Queens Road, Connells Point.

 

Background

 

2.      Council received a request from a local resident to consider the installation of a restricted parking zone on the narrow section of Queens Road to improve the safety of vehicles in this location.

 

3.      This section of Queens Road has a road width of 8.4m between kerbs and when vehicles are parked on both sides, there is insufficient width to maintain two-way vehicle flow.

 

4.      In mid-July, Council consulted with the affected residents for a “No Stopping” zone to be installed on Queens Road.  Council received a number of submissions requesting some modifications to the proposal.

 

5.      As a result of the feedback received, Council modified the proposal and as a result of the loss of parking on the main section of Queens Road, proposed the modification to the parking signs in the access road at the cul-de-sac.

 

Proposal

 

6.      Upon investigation, Council is proposing to install a 50m “No Stopping” zone on the northern side of Queens Road, adjacent to the hedge and also to modify the “No Parking” zone at the cul-de-sac in the access road to “No Parking, 5am – 3pm, Wed” that would allow bin collection.

 

7.      The residents in this vicinity have been notified of the revised proposal for the parking restrictions.  The closing date for submissions was 4 August.  Council received one phone call of support and one comment regarding the potential for vehicle speed to increase as a result of the “No Stopping “zone. 

 

8.      However as the road naturally narrows in this vicinity, it acts as a calming device and speeds are not expected to increase to an unsatisfactory level.  Council will also install advance warning signs to advise drivers on approach that the road narrows.

 

Financial Implications

 

9.      Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $400

Item:                   TAC095-17        Marist Lane Mortdale - Proposed one-way restriction 

Author:              Senior Traffic Engineer, Shereny Selim

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

Recommendation

That the proposal to restrict Marist Lane, Mortdale into one-way be denied due to lack of residents’ agreement.

 

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      To report to the committee the findings of a recent survey of residents along Cook Street and Victoria Avenue, Mortdale regarding the proposal to restrict Marist Lane to one-way.

 

Background

 

2.   A request was received by council from residents of Mortdale, requesting that Council investigate converting Marist Lane between Cook Street and Victoria Avenue into one-way due to the narrowness of the laneway.

3.   Marist Lane is located south of Cook Street, Mortdale and curves north to end at Victoria Avenue Mortdale.  The lane measures on average approximately 4.5m in width.

 

4.   Parking is restricted on both sides of the laneway from Victoria Street until the bend behind St Vincent de Paul. Parking is then allowed along the northern side between St Vincent de Paul and Cook Street. (see plan below).

 

 

5.      The residents who made representation to Council feel that the lane needs to be restricted to one-way as the width of the road doesn’t allow two vehicle flow.

 

6.      It is advised that while the residents’ concerns have merit, Marist Lane facilitates access to off street parking for some residents living along Cook Street and Victoria Avenue.

 

7.      Accordingly Council surveyed the affected residents seeking their feedback in regards to whether they would like Marist Lane to be restricted to one-way.

 

8.      13 letters were distributed to all the residents that their homes back onto Marist Lane, including St Vincent De Paul, asking them if they are in favour of Marist Lane being restricted to one-way in the northern direction where vehicles enter from Cook Street and exit from Victoria Avenue.

 

9.      Council received 7 responses back.  Four (4) responses were in favour of the proposal while three (3) responses were against the proposal.

 

10.    The residents that were against the proposal objected to the fact that access to their off street parking along Marist lane would be negatively affected if the lane was restricted to one-way.

 

11.    To ascertain road safety concerns raised by the residents that wanted the laneway to be restricted, the Roads and Maritime Service accident data were reviewed for the 5-year period between January 2012 and December 2016 and no accidents were recorded within the subject laneway.

 

12.    This indicates the awareness that the local residents have in regards to the restrictions that the narrowness of the laneway imposes.

 

13.    Accordingly in light of the lack of 100% agreement of all affected residents to the proposal, it is recommended that the status quo remain so as to not adversely impact the residents that objected to the proposal who would be negatively impacted.  

 

Financial Implications

No budget impact for this report.

Item:                   TAC096-17        Treacy Street Hurstville Bridge Works- Traffic Management Plan 

Author:              Senior Traffic Engineer, Shereny Selim

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That the committee review the submitted Traffic Management Plan by Sydney Trains for Treacy Street Bridge Works and make recommendations accordingly.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the committee’s feedback in regards to the Traffic Management Plan submitted by Sydney Trains for Treacy Street Bridge Works proposed to take place in mid-2018.

 

Background

2.      Council received representation from Sydney Trains in regards to their Treacy Street Bridge Works. The project proposes to replace the old structure with a new bridge.

 

3.      The new bridge incorporates three traffic lanes and two 1.8 m wide pedestrian walkaways, one on each side.

 

4.      The roadway alignment is improved from that of the existing arrangement with acceptable horizontal sight distance provided to vehicles approaching from the southern side.

 

5.      The new bridge structure will include a single span crossing over the rail corridor which improves rail safety by removing existing piers located within the rail corridor, eliminating failure from a rail collision.

 

6.      The superstructure will include six steel trough girders, where once supported on the new substructures, precast planks can be placed between girders and then the deck reinforcement and slab constructed with the rail corridor open to rail traffic.

 

7.      It is anticipated that the bridge closure will commence Saturday 7th of April 2018 with reopening scheduled for Monday 19th of November 2018.

 

8.      The closure is anticipated to be a full road closure with no access to public vehicles or pedestrians. 

 

9.      The road closure is proposed to be from the corner of Forest Road and Treacy Street ensuring Palm Court car park and the pedestrian crossing will remain open.

 

10.

 

11.    Sydney Trains are proposing a detour route in operation around the worksite to be as follows:

 

Eastbound: vehicles 4.2m and under along Railway Pde will be detoured via Treacy St underpass and onto Treacy St or Forest Rd. The Underpass has a height restriction of 4.3m.

 

All Vehicles over this height will be detoured further east to Lily St, left onto Durham St, then onto Forest Rd.

 

A VMS board will be installed advising motorists of the detours and restrictions in place for eastbound traffic.

 

Westbound:  Vehicles bypassing Hurstville along Treacy St will be detoured right onto Forest Rd, left onto The Avenue, left again onto Queen St and continue down to Forest Rd and further westbound onto King Georges Rd intersection.

 

A VMS board will be installed advising motorists of the detour and temporary By Pass around Hurstville.

 

Westbound Traffic along Railway Pde have existing No Right Turn into Treacy St. No provisions will be necessary.

 

 

 

12.    Sydney Trains advised that they will be responsible for all works, road closures and communication with affected residents/business owners and stakeholders.

 

13.    A full copy of the Traffic Management Plan with all TCPs and required certification is attached to this report for review.

 

Financial Implications

 

14.    No budget impact for this report.

Item:                   TAC100-17        Warwick Street Hurstville - Proposed No Stopping zones 

Author:              Assistant Traffic Engineer, Samuel Lindsay

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

Recommendation

(a)     That a 30m “No Stopping” zone be installed on both sides of the northern leg of the intersection of Warwick Street and Gloucester Road, Hurstville.

(b)     That a 22m “No Stopping” zone be installed on both sides of the eastern leg of the intersection of Warwick Street and Gloucester Road.

(c)     That the existing “Bus Zone” on the eastern side of the southern leg of the intersection of Warwick Street and Gloucester Road, be moved 8m south and a 8m “No Stopping” zone be installed.

(d)     That a 20m “No Stopping” zone be installed on the western side of the southern leg of the intersection of Warwick Street and Gloucester Road.

(e)     That a 17m “No Stopping” zone be installed on the southern side of the western leg of the intersection of Warwick Street and Gloucester Road.

(f)      That a 24m “No Stopping” zone be installed on the northern side of the western leg of the intersection of Warwick Street and Gloucester Road.

 

Executive Summary

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the proposed installation of “No Stopping” zones at the intersection of Warwick Street and Gloucester Road, Hurstville as shown on the attached plan TC 1609 attached to this report.

 

Background

2.      A request was received from Chris Minns MP, member for Kogarah, to investigate parking restrictions on Warwick Street due to the narrowing of the road east of the intersection with Gloucester Road, Hurstville.

Comments

3.      Following investigations by Council officers, it was found that there was an existing roundabout but no parking restrictions at the intersection of Warwick Street and Gloucester Road. It is proposed to install “No Stopping” zones at this intersection. This will stop vehicles parking too close to the intersection, improving safety and allow for adequate queueing from the roundabout.

4.      With regards to parking restrictions for the remainder or Warwick Street, due to the low volume of traffic flow in the area, the current road width is deemed acceptable. Any loss of parking would likely lead to increased traffic speeds in the vicinity.

5.      The residents in the vicinity have been notified of the proposed installation of “No Stopping” zones at the intersection of Warwick Street and Gloucester Road, Hurstville. No objections were received.

 

Financial Implications

6.      Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $1,200

Recommendation

That a 5m “No Parking” zone be installed on the north eastern end of Wallace Square, Narwee at the rear of 19 Chamberlain Street, as shown on the plan TC1611 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the proposed installation of a 5m “No Parking” zone on the north eastern end of Wallace Square, at the rear of 19 Chamberlain Street, Narwee.

 

Background

2.      A request was received by Council from the owner of 19 Chamberlain Street, Narwee to consider the installation of a “No Parking” zone at the rear of his property. Due to the orientation of Wallace Square and the adjacent park, vehicles often park in the space next to his driveway, restricting access to the property.

Comments

Financial Implications

4.      Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $300

Author:              Traffic Engineer, Ben Liddell

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

Recommendation

(a)     That line marking be installed throughout Oatley Park, Oatley as per the attached line marking plan.

(b)     That Mark Coure MP, Member for Oatley be advised of Council’s decision.

 

(c)     Further that the resident be advised of Council’s decision.

 

Executive Summary

1.      This report seeks the committee’s approval to install pedestrian line marking throughout Oatley Park to improve pedestrian safety.

 

Background

2.      At the 18 April 2017 Traffic Advisory Committee Council proposed installing line marking throughout Oatley Park, Oatley to improve pedestrian safety. The Traffic Committee recommended the following:

“Council supports options for improving pedestrian safety in Oatley Park and will present a report to a future Traffic Advisory Committee meeting following further investigation due to road width limitations and an on-site inspection with Council staff and a representative of the Roads and Maritime Services (RMS).” 

3.      Council has since meet with a Roads and Maritime Services representative to discuss possible solutions to improve pedestrian safety within the park.

 

4.      Council and the RMS representative agreed that a separate pedestrian lane is feasible along the sections of road that have widths greater than or equal to 6 metres. This will separate the pedestrians from vehicles and cyclists.

 

5.      Additional 20 km/h pavement markings will be installed on all roads throughout Oatley Park to remind users of the speed limit.

 

Financial Implications

6.      Within budget allocation. Estimated cost is $11,000
