Agenda Items

Item:                   TAC135-17        Boundary Road, Mortdale - Proposed Upgrade of Pedestrian Refuge 

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

Recommendation

(a)     That the existing pedestrian refuge in Boundary Road at the intersection of Woronora Parade, be reconstructed and appropriate signage and line marking be installed, in accordance with the design, as shown on plan TC1632 attached to the report.

(b)     That the adjacent properties be notified of Council’s decision.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed upgrade to the existing pedestrian refuge in Boundary Road, Mortdale.

Background

 

2.      Council has received a request to investigate the possible installation of a pedestrian refuge in close proximity to the new Mortdale Community Centre to accommodate the increased pedestrian traffic in the area.

3.      A request for a pedestrian refuge in Boundary Road, adjacent to the Mortdale Community Centre, was considered by the Traffic Advisory Committee in February 2017.  The request was denied by the Committee due to the impact on the neighbouring residents’ access as well as the loss of strategic car parking spaces.

 

4.      Council has recently received another request from a local resident to consider upgrading the existing pedestrian refuge in Boundary Road near Woronora Parade to current standards.

 

Proposal

 

5.      A design for the refuge near Woronora Parade, with associated line marking and new signage, has been prepared in accordance with the Australian Standards 1742.10 – 2009, Guide to Traffic Management – Part 6 (Austroads) publication and the RMS supplement.

 

6.      The reconstruction of the pedestrian refuge in Boundary Road at the intersection of Woronora Parade would provide a safe location for pedestrians to cross the intersection and would also improve the vehicle turning movements in this location.

 

Financial Implications

 

7.      Additional non-budgeted funds of $60,000 from Capital Works Budget 2018/19.

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

Recommendation

That a “No Stopping” zone be installed near the entrance to the Allawah Train Station carpark, as shown on the plan TC 1630 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the proposed installation of a “No Stopping” zone near the entrance to Allawah Train Station carpark.

 

Background

 

2.      A request was received by Council from a resident to consider implementing signage to prevent vehicles parking at the entrance of Allawah Train Station carpark.

 

Comments

 

3.      Following investigations by Council officers, it was found that vehicles were parking at the hashed line to the entrance of Allawah Train Station carpark, narrowing the carriageway. It is proposed to install a “No Stopping” zone to indicate that vehicles cannot park in this location and increase safety in the area.

 

Financial Implications

 

4.      Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $550.

Item:                   TAC137-17        Hurstville Public School and Other Nearby Schools Traffic Study findings.  

Author:              Senior Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

Recommendation

(a)     THAT the Traffic Committee review and approve the mitigating measures within Georges River Council LGA as presented by Bitzios Consulting in their traffic study for Hurstville Public school and other nearby schools.

(b)     THAT Georges River Council traffic section write to Bayside Council, RMS and Punchbowl Buses in regards to the mitigating measures that fall within their jurisdiction, requesting that they review and implement these measures.

 

 

Executive Summary

 

1.   The purpose of this report is to present to the Traffic Committee the findings and recommendations of the Traffic Study carried out by Bitzios Consulting for Hurstville Public School and other nearby schools in the aim of identifying and addressing community road safety concerns.  

 

Background

 

2.   Bitzios Consulting has been commissioned by Georges River Council to undertake an independent traffic study to review the pedestrian safety, traffic congestion and parking arrangement at Hurstville Public School and other nearby schools such as Georges River College, Hurstville Boys Campus, Bethany College, St Mary’s Star of the Sea Catholic School, Hurstville Adventist School, and Sydney Technical High School.

 

3.   The purpose of the study was to identify road safety issues in the area including drop-off / pick-up provisions and public transport facilities, and to make recommendations for possible mitigation measures to alleviate the issues identified.

 

4.   The locations of the identified schools for the study area are as per below.

 

 

5.   The study tasks were undertaken in two stages.

 

a.   Stage one comprised of investigating the range of safety and efficiency issues in the study area and developing a suite of proposed mitigation measures to address these issues.

 

b.   Stage two followed Stage one by taking into consideration stakeholder feedback and focused on preparing the necessary documentation to support the proposed mitigation measures, such as policies, management measures and/or concept designs for infrastructure changes.

 

6.   Details of the above stages can be found in the body of the traffic study attached to this traffic committee report.

 

7.   The traffic study carried out by Bitzios identified the following in regards to Drop off/ Pick up facilities within the study area

 

8.   Only two schools within the study area had onsite designated drop-off / pick-up zone (with limited time parking for parents) these being

 

·    Hurstville Adventist School and

·    St. Mary’s Star of the Sea Catholic School.

 

9.   The rest of the schools in the study area do not have any designated drop-off / pick-up zone and depend on the limited available on-street parking for drop off and pick up.

 

10. While most of the students of the other four schools identified in the study area predominantly use public transport to travel to / from school. There are still a significant amount of students that are being dropped-off and/or picked-up by their parents.

 

11. The Traffic study identified the locations of the unofficial drop-off / pick-up zones for these schools to be located near respective pedestrian access points and are summarised as per the following:

 

 

 

·    Hurstville Public School: on Orange Street and Kenwyn Street Hurstville.

·    Georges River College- Hurstville Boys Campus: on Kenwyn Street, Vine Street and Crosby Avenue. Hurstville

·    Bethany College: on Waratah Street and Croydon Road Hurstville

·    Sydney Technical High School: on Anderson Street, Ethel Street and northern part of Botany Street.

 

12. These drop-off / pick-up zones are shown as per below.

 

 

13. Further to the above, site inspections were undertaken by Bitzios Consulting at morning and afternoon school peak hours on Thursday 10th November 2016, as well as at morning school peak hours on Thursday 30th March 2017.

 

14. Traffic volumes were assumed to represent a typical school day vehicular flows on each occasion.

 

15. Road safety issues identified by Bitzios during their site visits were at the following locations shown in map.

 

 

16. The findings at each of these locations are presented below with the recommended measures for short term solution and long term solution.

Short-term measures

Long-term measures

1

Inadequate Pedestrian Crossing

Infrastructure: A significant number of pedestrians generate from the high-rise apartments at southern side of Forest Road / Wright Street / Durham Street intersection.

 

Kerb ramps with pedestrian refuge are installed on Durham Street for people walking towards the eastern side of Forest

Road, but no crossing is installed within 250 metres from this intersection for people walking towards Wright street or the north western side of Forest Road. Pedestrians practise unsafe crossing to avoid longer walk.

Forest road /Wright Street /Durham Street.

 

 

Georges

River Council

 

Council is currently liaising with developers to signalise the subject intersection with facilitating signalised pedestrian crossings.

2

Deformed fencing on footpath:

Fences are installed on footpath within bus zones on Forest Road outside Hurstville Public School. Some parts of fences were found to be twisted /damaged on both sides of Forest Road. The deformed fences may not serve the purpose of ensuring Pedestrian safety.

3

Inadequate green time for

pedestrians: The green time for

pedestrians crossing Forest Road at

the signalised intersection with Lily

Street seems inadequate and the

Waiting time seems quite long.

 

There is no diagonal crossing between

northern side of Lily Street and the

western side of Forest Road, and so a

large number of pedestrians use this

crossing during school peak hours.

 

The worst-case scenario occurs during

afternoon peak period when a significant number of students and parents are seen rushing to cross here.

 

This leads to unsafe crossing practice such as starting to cross even after the red-man starts flashing, and walking outside the designated crossing area, i.e. on vehicular travel lanes.

Kerb ramp not aligned with

pedestrian desire line:

 

Kerb ramp faced in a way which tend to lead prams or young children beyond the

stop / give-way line and potentially make them vulnerable to be hit by high-speed vehicles

Road.

 

Georges River Council

Consider realigning the kerb ramps

Standard kerb-ramp dimensions and a

concept drawing are presented in Figure

5.2 and Figure 5.3, respectively

 

5

High traffic and pedestrian

activities but inadequate safety

measures:

Kenwyn Street is a cul-de sac,

Approximately 200 metres in length.

 

Pedestrian access points for

Hurstville Public School and Georges

River College are located on this

street and a large number of students

are dropped-off / picked-up here.

 

Parking is unrestricted on both sides

of the road.

 

During school hours, this

road becomes highly congested as

parents would park and double-park

near the school entrances, including

the northern end (cul-de-sac) which is

a 'no parking' zone dedicated for

vehicular U-turns or three-point-turns.

 

Also, Kenwyn Street / Forest Road /

Cronulla Street is a priority intersection

with high traffic and pedestrian

activities during school peak hours.

 

Congestion on Kenwyn Street is

excessive and vehicles often wait a

long time to turn right onto Forest

Road due to continuous traffic on

Forest Road. Kerb ramps near Forest

Road and footpath on one side are the

only pedestrian infrastructure available

on Kenwyn Street which seem inadequate for high number of pedestrians.

Kenwyn Street

intersection with

Forest Road

 

Georges River Council

 

School zone sign in Kenwyn Street has been listed by Roads and Maritime where flashing lights will be installed

soon.

 

This is expected to enhance safer

driving practice on this road.

 

It is ecommended that a designated

short time parking area for parents (kiss

and ride) should be introduced so that the drop-off / pick-up can take place in an organised and controlled way.

 

Presence of greater enforcement is

suggested to manage the parking restrictions in this kiss and ride area.

 

Also, consider marking unbroken Double

Barrier lines on Kenwyn Street to

prevent drivers from performing U-Turns

in the middle of the street during school pick-up and drop-off times.

 

 

 

 

 

To increase pedestrian safety near this intersection, it is recommended to

investigate modified

access arrangement such as “Left-in and Left-out Only”, with pedestrian refuge on Kenwyn Street near Forest Road.

 

Also investigate feasibility to introduce a signal

Intersection.

Closely located bus stops: Four (4)

eastbound bus stops are located on

north-western side of Forest Road

between Roberts Lane and Anderson

Street.

 

The average spacing between

these bus stops is 190 metres.

 

A similar scenario is noted for the

westbound bus stops within the same

road section.

 

School buses as well as

public buses operate in these stops.

 

The NSW State Transit Bus

Infrastructure Guide suggests bus

stops to be spaced at 200m to 400m

intervals. The closely located bus stops in this road section interrupt the continuity of traffic flow.

Forest Road

 

Punchbowl Bus Company

Consider increasing spacing between bus stops by consolidating two or more bus stops into one.

 

For example, stops

eastbound bus stops near Kenwyn

Street and Waratah Street can be

removed and bus stop opposite to

Roberts Lane can be relocated to 90

metres north from its current location so

that traffic flow in this road section would be improved while maintaining standard spacing between bus stops.

 

This will also mean that these bus stops would be located closer to pedestrian

crossings.

 A Bus Stop Audit is recommended to identify

the ideal locations and infrastructure of the bus stops.

 

Consider School buses to stop on side street.

 

Investigate feasibility of

upgrading the road section

with dedicated bus bays

9

Inadequate width of footpath and

inadequate length of fencing: The

width of footpath at south-eastern side

of Croydon Road and North-western

side of Forest road is 2.6 m only. The

footpath is too narrow at the bend for

too many students at the school peak

hours. Also, the fencing near the

intersection is 3.5m long which seems

inadequate to ensure safety of the

pedestrians.

11

Absence of ‘Give-way' road

marking: Drivers on Vine Street

approaching Croydon Road tend to

stop beyond the intersection due to

the existing intersection geometry, and

are at risk of being hit by vehicles

travelling on Croydon Road.

Vine Street near

Croydon Road

 

Georges River Council

Consider installing standard line marking and signage of 'Give-way', recommended on Vine Street near

Croydon Road.

 

 

12

Narrow kerb ramp: Width of kerb

ramps at both sides of signalised

crossing on Croydon Road near

Crosby Avenue seemed inadequate.

 

Both kerb ramps measure at approximately 550 mm at the top and

650 mm at the bottom. Roads and

Maritime suggests standard minimum

width of kerb top to be 1200 mm.

These kerb ramps are located in front

of St Mary's Star of the Sea Catholic

Primary School, and subject to high

pedestrian activities during school

peak periods.

15

U-turns in narrow and congested

road: A large number of students are

dropped-off / picked-up at Orange Street near Orange Lane. To avoid the congestion at Orange Lane / Wright

Street intersection, some drivers were

observed to perform U-turns on Orange Street. This results in additional congestion on this road.

Orange Street

 

Georges Rover Council

Orange Street to be marked with

Double Unbroken lines to prevent

drivers from performing U-turns during

school pick-up and drop-off times

 

Provide information to educate parents using the drop-off / pick-up area to enter from Vine Street and exit via Orange Lane, and to avoid performing a U-turn

near the Orange Street / Orange Lane intersection

Street.

 

Georges Rover Council

Painted '40' and 'dragon's teeth' require re-marking

 

17

Narrow road with parking on both

sides: The width of Orange Street and

Wright Street are 7m and 9m, respectively. Due to cars parked on both sides, these roads effectively become one-lane road with two-way movements.

Orange Street

and Wright

Street.

 

Georges Rover Council

Consider no parking during school peak hours on Wright Street between Cross Street and Orange Lane.

 

Consider on-street parking to be allowed on only one side of Orange

Street near Orange Lane during school

peak hours.

 

18

Narrow Footpath, and poor visibility

of signs: Footpath is installed on one side of Orange Lane. Width of this

footpath is 2.3 metres near eastern

end (Hurstville Public School access),

but gradually narrows down to 1.5

metres only near the western end

(Hurstville Adventist School access),

which seems inadequate during

School peak hours. Also, it was noted that “No Left Turn” signs on Orange Street near Orange Lane and time-restricted “No Entry” signs on Orange Lane near Orange

Street have become faded and offers

poor visibility to drivers.

Orange Lane

near Wright

Street.

 

Georges Rover Council

 

Consider widening the footpath near

Wright Street up to 2.6 metres;

 

Update the 'No Left Turn' signs on the corner of Orange Street and Orange

Lane;

 

Relocate the existing 'No Entry' sign on Orange Lane so it is more clearly visible to drivers.

Install a shared zone and reduce speed limit to

10 km/h.

 

Introduce traffic calming measures

19

Congested intersection: Wright

Street / Orange Lane is a give-way

intersection, with one-way movement

permitted on Orange Lane. A large

number of students of Hurstville Public

School and Hurstville Adventist School

are dropped-off / picked-up at Orange

Street, Orange Lane and Wright

Street, which results in high traffic

congestion in this intersection on both

school peak periods. The worst-case

scenario is at afternoon peak, when

drivers on Orange Lane turning left

onto Wright Street require to give-way

to a continuous flow of pedestrians on

Wright Street Zebra crossing near the

intersection. It creates a long queue back on Orange Lane and Orange Street.

Wright Street /

Orange Lane

priority

intersection.

 

Hurstville Public School

Ensuring that the traffic controller is

providing adequate gap for the queueing

vehicles

 

 

17. The above recommendations have been presented by Bitzios as a holistic approach in the aim of reducing road safety risks within the vicinity of the identified study area.

 

18. While most of the above mentioned recommendations fall within the Georges River Council LGA some of the recommendations need to be referred to Bayside Council, RMS and Punchbowl buses for implementation.

 

 

19. The full Traffic Study report prepared by Bitzios Consulting is attached for reference and the purpose of obtaining more information and detail in regards to the study.

 

Financial Implications

 

Within budget allocation. $30,000 from RMS Traffic Facility Grant.
