Agenda Items

Item:                   TAC143-17        Boundary Road Oatley - Proposed No Right Turn 

Author:              Assistant Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

Recommendation

(a)     That two “No Right Turn” signs be installed on Boundary Road, Oatley, near to the intersection of Gungah Bay Road, for southbound traffic, as shown on plan TC1636 attached to the report.

(b)     That the BP service station be notified of the Traffic Advisory Committee’s decision.

Executive Summary

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the installation of two “No Right Turn” signs on Boundary Road, Oatley.

 

Background

2.      Council received representations from David Coleman MP, member for Banks, to consider installing a concrete island on Boundary Road to prevent vehicles turning right into the BP service station, causing traffic to queue through the signalised intersection during peak times.

 

Comments

3.      Following investigations by Council officers, it was observed that vehicles wishing to turn right into the BP service station restrict traffic flow travelling south on Boundary Road, due to the on-street parking in the adjacent lane. During peak times, vehicles wishing to turn right into the service station waiting for a safe gap can result in significant queuing through the signalised intersection of Boundary Road and Gungah Bay Road.

4.      It is noted that there is an alternative entrance to the BP service station on Gungah Bay Road.

5.      The loss of on-street parking is not justified in this location, therefore it is proposed to install two “No Right Turn” signs to restrict vehicles turning right into the BP service station.

 

Community Consultation

6.      The BP service station has been notified of the proposed “No Right Turn” sign on Boundary Road, Oatley. No objection has been received.

 

Financial Implications

7.      Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $250

Item:                   TAC144-17        Bassett Street, Hurstville - Proposed "Work Zone" at number 19 

Author:              Trainee Assets Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

Recommendation

(a)     That a 12m “Works Zone, 7am – 5pm, Mon – Sat” be installed on the western side of Bassett Street, Hurstville adjacent to number 19, for a period of 20 weeks commencing on 5th February 2018, as shown on plan TC1643 attached to the report.

(b)     That the parking be returned to its current status at the completion of the “Works Zone” period.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for a “Works Zone” to be installed at 19 Bassett Street, Hurstville.

 

Background

 

2.      The builder for a Council approved development involving the construction of a single storey residential dwelling at No. 19 Bassett Street, Hurstville has requested the installation of a “Works Zone” adjacent to the site to provide an area where mobile concrete pumps and vehicles associated with the construction can park.

 

3.      Currently the street is unrestricted and due to the close proximity of the site to Hurstville Central Business District, there is limited parking available for vehicles.

 

Proposal

 

4.      Upon investigation of this request, it is proposed to convert 12m of the currently unrestricted parking adjacent to No. 19 Bassett Street, Hurstville, to a “Works Zone, 7am – 5pm, Mon – Sat” for a period of 20 weeks.  This would provide an area where the vehicles involved in the construction of the new residential dwelling can park in close proximity to the worksite.

 

Financial Implications

 

5.      No budget impact for this report.

Item:                   TAC145-17        Water Street, Blakehurst - Proposed Linemarkings 

Author:              Trainee Assets Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

Recommendation

(a)     That a left hand Edge Line (E1) with red Raised Reflective Pavement Markers be painted 2.2m from the face of the kerb on the northern side of Water Street, between Vaughan Street and the carpark of Water Street, Blakehurst.

(b)     That a Dividing Barrier Line (BB) with yellow Raised Reflective Pavement Markers (RRPM) be painted 3.275m from the Edge Line and kerb on Water Street, between Vaughan Street and the carpark of Water Street, Blakehurst, as shown on attached plan TC1637.

 

Executive Summary

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the proposed line markings on Water Street, Blakehurst.

 

Background

2.      Council has received a request to investigate vehicles parking on the southern side of Water Street, Blakehurst, facing the opposite way of travel essentially turning the street one-way.

 

Background

3.      The painting of the edge lines and centreline is a cost effective method to assist vehicles in the correct way of travel by providing clear delineation for drivers and would lead to an improvement in safety at this location.  The painting of the lines would result in the loss of parking on the southern side of Water Street adjacent to the reserve.  However, due to the close proximity of the formalised carpark, this is deemed acceptable.

4.      Delineation would also prevent vehicles parking on the southern side of Water Street further improving road safety in this area.

5.      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 2.2m and complies with the Standards.

6.      The Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) “Road Design Guide” requires a minimum travel lane width of 3m and the submitted design also complies with this requirement.

 

Financial Implications

7.      Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $2,500

Item:                   TAC150-17        Treacy Street, Hurstville - Proposed "No Parking" zones in Council carpark 

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

Recommendation

(a)     That four (4) car parking spaces on the western side of the Treacy Street Council carpark be signposted as “No Parking, Permit Holders Excepted, Area A”.

(b)     That four (4) car parking spaces on the western side of the Treacy Street Council carpark be signposted as “No Parking, Permit Holders Excepted, Area B”, as shown on plan TC1649 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed “No Parking” zones in the Treacy Street Council carpark.

Background

2.      Council has been requested by a local resident to consider modifications to the existing signage along the western wall of the Treacy Street Council carpark.

 

3.      Currently, there are four (4) car spaces along the wall signposted as “3 Bridges Community Vehicles Only” and four (4) car spaces signposted “St Vincent De Paul Staff Vehicles Only”.  These signs are not in accordance with the NSW Road Rules and cannot be enforced by Council Parking Officers.

 

Proposal

4.      It is proposed to remove the existing signage and replace with “No Parking, Permit Holders Excepted” for Area A and Area B.

 

5.      Council will issue “Area A” Permits to St Vincent De Paul Staff and “Area B” permits will be issued to 3 Bridges Community Staff.  The permits have conditions and are required to be displayed on the dashboard of the vehicle when parked in the permit excepted area. 

 

6.      The new signs will advise drivers that only “Area A” or “Area B” permit holders can legally park in this location and enable the Council Parking Officers to enforce the restrictions in this area of the carpark.  It will also deter customers from using these spaces during the day as they are not allocated permits.

 

Financial Implications

7.      Within budget allocation = RMS Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $500.

Item:                   TAC151-17        Blakesley Road, South Hurstville - Proposed Linemarking 

Author:              Trainee Assets Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

Recommendation

(a)     That a left hand Edge Line (E1) with red Raised Reflective Pavement Markers be painted 2.35m from the face of the kerb on both the northern side and southern side of Blakesley Road, between West Street and Bellevue Parade, South Hurstville.

(b)     That a Dividing Barrier Line (BB) with yellow Raised Reflective Pavement Markers (RRPM) be painted 4m from the northern Edge Line and 4.15m from the southern Edge Line on Blakesley Road, between West Street and Bellevue Parade, South Hurstville.

(c)     That a Give-Way Holding Line (TB & TB1) and associated signage be installed at George Street and St Georges Parade off Blakesley Road, South Hurstville, as shown on Plan TC1638, Sheets 1 – 3, attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the proposed linemarkings and associated signage on Blakesley Road, South Hurstville.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received a request from a local resident to consider installation of traffic calming devices due to vehicle speed and volume along Blakesley Road, South Hurstville.

3.      The results of a previous traffic count along Blakesley Road, South Hurstville, indicated that vehicle speeds were within the acceptable 85th percentile and volume within the acceptable limits.

4.      Whilst the vehicle speed and volume were within acceptable limits, the speed is approaching a level that warrants the possible implementation of speed control devices.

 

Comments

 

5.      The painting of the edge lines and centreline is a cost effective method to assist in slowing vehicles by providing clear delineation for drivers and would lead to an improvement in safety at this location.  The painting of the lines would not result in the loss of any parking spaces.

 

6.      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 2.35m and complies with the Standards.

3.      GTA Consultants has provided Council with a Transport Impact Statement which included a Vehicle Swept Paths Assessment to indicate that a “No Stopping” zone would assist in accommodating the size of the vehicles entering and exiting the site.

 

4.      The “No Stopping” zone would also increase the sight distance and due to the nature of the emergency vehicles exiting would increase the safety in this area.

 

Financial Implications

 

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

Item:                   TAC154-17        Park Road, Kogarah Bay - Proposed "No Stopping" zones near Bayview Street 

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

Recommendation

(a)     That a 50m “No Stopping” zone be installed on the eastern side of Park Road, north of Bayview Street.

(b)     That the statutory 10m “No Stopping” zones be installed on the northern and southern side of Bayview Street at the intersection with Park Road, as shown on plan TC1651 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for a “No Stopping” zone in Park Road and Bayview Street, Kogarah Bay.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received a request on behalf of Steve Kamper, MP State Member for Rockdale, to investigate the safety issues at the intersection of Park Road and Bayview Street.

 

Proposal

 

3.      Upon investigation of this request, it is proposed to install a 50m “No Stopping” zone on the eastern side of Park Road, north of Bayview Street.  This would prevent vehicles parking in this location and improve the sight distance along Park Road for vehicles exiting Bayview Street.  The “No Stopping” zone would also improve the traffic flow on Park Road by allowing a slip lane around vehicles turning right into Wyee Street.

 

4.      Council is also proposing the signposting of the statutory 10m “No Stopping” zones in Bayview Street at Park Road to prevent vehicles too close to the corner and improve the turning movements.

 

Financial Implications

 

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

Item:                   TAC155-17        Samuel Street, Peakhurst - Proposed "No Stopping" zones 

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

Recommendation

(a)     That the existing “No Stopping” zone on the southern side of Samuel Street, east of Belmore Road, be extended by 15m, as shown on plan TC1642, Sheet 1, attached to the report.

(b)     That a “No Stopping” zone be installed on the northern and southern side of Samuel Street, west of the roundabout at Forest Road, as shown on plan TC1642, Sheet 2, attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed “No Stopping” zones in Samuel Street, Peakhurst.

 

Background

 

2.      Councillor Lou Konjarski has requested the installation of restricted parking zones in Samuel Street near the intersections with Belmore Road and Forest Road.

 

3.      It has been advised that when vehicles are parked in close proximity to these intersections, the vehicle turning movements are impeded causing a safety issue and traffic congestion in the street.

 

Proposal

 

4.      Upon investigation of this request, Council is proposing to extend the “No Stopping” zone on the southern side of Samuel Street, near Belmore Road, by 15 metres.  This would prevent people parking too close to the intersection, leading to an improvement in vehicle movements.

 

5.      Council is also proposing to install a “No Stopping” zone on the southern and northern side of Samuel Street, west of the roundabout at Forest Road.  This would prevent people parking too close to the roundabout, leading to an improvement in vehicle movements.

 

6.      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.  The distance from the face of the kerb to the dividing line in Samuel Street has been measured at 4 metres.

 

7.      The residents in these vicinities have been notified by letter of the proposed “No Stopping” zones.  The closing date for submissions was 24 November 2017.  Council received one objection from a resident regarding the proposed “No Stopping” signs near Forest Road.

 

8.      The objector has requested that the proposed “No Stopping” zones on both the northern and southern side of Samuel Street should be reduced in length and the line marking modified to allow more legal parking spaces in the street. 

 

9.      Council officers have investigated this request.  The length of the dividing line on approach to the roundabout is currently 15 metres and the reduction in length would encourage drivers to park closer to the intersection and could lead to issues with turning vehicles.  There is a significant amount of legal unrestricted parking available near this intersection and the installation of “No Stopping” signs adjacent to the existing dividing line in accordance with the NSW Road Rules is deemed acceptable.

 

Financial Implications

 

10.    Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $500.

Item:                   TAC156-17        282-290 Forest Road Hurstville - Construction Traffic Management Plan.  

Author:              Senior Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

Recommendation

a.   THAT the Traffic Committee approve the Construction Management Plan for 282-290 Forest Road Hurstville as submitted by McLaren Traffic Engineering.

b.   THAT the traffic committee approve option 1 as mentioned in the CTMP which is to allow for 30 metres of 1/4P and 1/2P parking (approximately 5 car parking spaces) to be converted to a Works Zone in Forest Road, Hurstville (directly outside Hurstville Railway Station) to allow for a 19m Articulated Vehicle to access the construction site at its frontage on Forest Road, Hurstville

c.   THAT the traffic committee allow for a Works Zone in Humphreys Lane within the frontage of the construction site on Humphreys Lane, (No loss of existing parking) to allow for an 8.8m MRV vehicle to access the site.

 

d.   THAT Hutchinson Builders be requested to submit separate works zone applications to the Traffic section and be brought back to the Traffic Committee for final approval and payment.

 

e.   THAT Hutchinson Builders be requested to consult with all the affected business owners and stakeholders in regards to the loss of parking and/or amenities during the construction period.

 

Executive Summary

1.      This report is presented to the traffic committee for review and consideration of the Traffic Management Plan for the construction of 282-290 Forest Road Hurstville.

 

Background

2.   Hutchinson Builders engaged McLaren Traffic Engineering to prepare their Construction Traffic Management plan for 282-290 Forest Road, Hurstville.

3.   Currently existing on 282-290 Forest Road, Hurstville is an arcade from Forest Road to Humphreys Lane as well as small retail businesses with shop top housing. All existing vehicular access to the site is provided via Humphreys Lane.

 

4.   The site has frontages to both Forest Road to the south and Humphreys Lane / Crofts Avenue to the north. The site is situated within Hurstville’s Town Centre and is generally surrounded by small retail / commercial developments, with Westfield Hurstville located to the north and Hurstville Train Station located to the south.

 

5.   The development involves the demolition of existing structures and construction of a 14 storey building comprising three levels of retail floor area, eleven levels of commercial floor area and associated basement car park accessed from Humphreys Lane.             The proposed works will be split up into stages of demolition, excavation, construction and fit out and finishes. (Details of construction site plan for each stage is provided in TMP attached).

 

6.   Access to the site can only be facilitated from either Forest Road or Humphreys Lane Hurstville.

 

7.   Access to the site from Humphreys lane is limited due to a bridge that spans over Humphreys lane from the Westfield building to 264 -266B Forest Road Hurstville, with a height clearance that only allows for a maximum of an 8.8m MRV vehicle to access the construction site through Humphreys Lane.

 

8.   The largest vehicle that will access the site from Humphreys Lane will be restricted to an 8.8m length Medium Rigid Vehicle (MRV) which is proposed to stand within the public road (surrounded by construction fencing). The largest vehicle to access the Works Zone along Forest Road will be restricted to a 19m long Articulated Vehicle (AV).

 

9.   The TMP indicated that any reverse manoeuvres required for the entry / egress by construction vehicles along Humphreys Lane or Forest Road will be required to be undertaken with the assistance of traffic controllers. The preferred operation, which will be undertaken wherever possible, will be that vehicles both enter and exit the site in a forward direction. This operation is to be undertaken under the traffic control plan as detailed in Section 11 of the TMP.

 

10. Articulated Vehicles up to a 19m in length travelling to the Forest Road frontage will approach from the south / north along King Georges Road, turning left / right onto Forest Road and manoeuvring into the Works Zone. It is expected that 19m AV exiting the site from Forest Road will continue along Forest Road, and turn left / right onto the Princes Highway.

 

11. MRV up to 8.8m length travelling to Humphreys Lane will approach from the south / north along King Georges Road, turning left / right onto Forest Road, turning left into Rose Street, turning left onto Humphreys Lane and manoeuvre into the Works Zone along Humphreys Lane.

 

12. MRV up to 8.8m length travelling from the site from Humphreys Lane will leave via Cross Street, turn left onto Park Road, left onto Queen Road, continue onto Forest Road and turn left / right onto Kings Georges Road.

 

13. Swept paths have been undertaken and are reproduced in the TMP, attached for reference, showing an 8.8m length MRV and a 19m length AV entering and exiting the site from Humphreys Lane and the proposed Works Zone from Forest Road respectively.

 

14. Pedestrians on Forest Road will not be affected as the existing footpath along the site’s frontage to Forest Road will remain open to all pedestrians at all time during construction where possible. Type B hoarding will be installed to allow for free access to pedestrians at all times along the northern side of Forest Road.

 

15. For the purpose of the provision of a Works Zone within the site’s frontage to Humphreys Lane (public verge) the footpath on the western side of Humphreys Lane will be closed along the sites frontage during the use of the Works Zone to ensure the safety of pedestrians during use of the Works Zone. The construction site fencing from Humphreys Lane will maintain access to Westfield Hurstville by utilising the existing footpath facilities along Cross Street and Crofts Avenue including the pedestrian overpass walkway and pedestrian crossing. Pedestrians wanting to access Humphreys Lane will be detoured to the western side of the road, via the existing raised pedestrian crossing.

 

16. All the above mentioned manoeuvres are included in the attached TMP and an RMS Accredited Traffic Controller will be used during the implementation of the TCPs detailed in section 11 of the attached TMP.

 

17. While there is a big disadvantage to the business owners along Forest Road due to loss of parking, access to the site for construction needs to be granted by Council. 

 

18. Council will be requesting that Hutchinson Builders notify all the affected businesses about the loss of parking along Forest Road if the Works Zone was approved.

 

19.

 

 

Financial Implications

20.    Within budget allocation.

 

Community Engagement

21.    Community engagement will be conducted by Hutchinson’s Builders to ensure all stakeholders are informed of any changes to parking and traffic within the vicinity of the construction site.

Item:                   TAC157-17        Botany Street, Carlton - Proposed "1P" Zone 

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

Recommendation

That 12m of the existing “Disabled Parking” zone on the eastern side of Botany Street, adjacent to the Botany Gardens Nursing Home, be converted to “1P, 8.30am – 6pm”, as shown on plan TC1652 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed parking changes in Botany Street, Carlton.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received a request to investigate the parking availability along Botany Street to create additional parking spaces for residents.

 

3.      A location identified as part of the investigation was adjacent to the Botany Gardens Nursing Home, located at number 90 Botany Street, where there is currently an 18m “Disabled Parking” zone near their entrance.  As these signs restrict the spaces to people with a Mobility Parking Scheme Permit at all times, other drivers are unable to use the spaces.

 

4.      Council has consulted with the owner of the Botany Gardens Nursing Home and he advised that the spaces are under-utilised due to the restrictions and it would be more beneficial to their nursing home to have the spaces converted to timed parking that would allow their visitors to park throughout the day, whilst retaining one “Disabled Parking” space.

 

Proposal

 

5.      Upon investigation of this request, Council is proposing to convert 12m of the existing 18m “Disabled Parking” zone, adjacent to the Botany Gardens Nursing Home, to a “1P, 8.30am – 6pm” zone.  This would allow visitors to the nursing home an area to park during operating hours, whilst also allowing residents to park unrestricted after 6pm.

 

Financial Implication

 

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

Recommendation

(a)     That a 317m BB Centreline be installed on Ogilvy Street, Peakhurst between Evans Street and Henry Lawson Drive, as shown on plan TC1653 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the installation of a BB Centreline on Ogilvy Street, Peakhurst

 

Background

2.      Council received a request from a resident to investigate the driving conditions on Ogilvy Street, Peakhurst in particular addressing vehicles driving in the centre of the road causing a hazard.

 

Comments

3.      Following investigation by Council officers, it was observed that vehicles were frequently travelling along the crest of the road, imposing a danger to oncoming vehicles. It is therefore proposed to install a 317m BB Centreline on Ogilvy Street between Evans Street and Henry Lawson Drive, Peakhurst. This delineation will enforce vehicle movements and improve driver safety in this location.

 

Financial Implications

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

Recommendation

That the signage changes on both sides of Forest Road, Hurstville between Durham Street and Croydon Road, be installed as shown on plan TC 1641 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the proposed signage changes on Forest Road, Hurstville, between Durham Street and Croydon Road.

 

Background

2.      Council received a request from a resident indicating there was contradictory signage on Forest Road adjacent to Hurstville Public School as requested clarification on the matter.

 

Comments

3.      Following investigations by Council officers it was found that the signage of both sides of Forest Road between Durham Street and Croydon Road was contradictory. In particular the “No Parking” restrictions were not consistent, and “Clearway” signage had been installed on a non-regional road.

4.      The proposed signage changes will result in a consistent “No Parking, 6.30am-9.30am, Mon-Fri” zone for the full length of the western side of Forest Road between Durham Street and Croydon Road, as well as a “No Parking, 3pm-7pm, Mon-Fri” zone for the full length of the eastern side of Forest Road between Durham Street and Croydon Road.

Item:                   TAC161-17        Norman Street Allawah - Proposed No Stopping zone extension 

Author:              Assistant Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

Recommendation

(a)     That the existing 10m “No Stopping” zone on the south eastern side of the intersection of Norman Street and Illawarra Street, Allawah be extended by 5m, as shown on the plan TC1647 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the proposed extension of the existing 10m “No Stopping” zone on the south eastern side of the intersection of Norman Street and Illawarra Street, Allawah.

 

Background

2.      A request was received by multiple residents of Illawarra Street to extend the “No Stopping” zone on the south eastern side of the intersection of Norman Street and Illawarra Street, Allawah, due to restricted sight lines when exiting Norman Street.

3.      Following investigations by Council officers, it was found that there are two large, significant street trees in this location, which impede on the sight lines at this location. It was also found that if a larger vehicle parks in this location sight lines are completely blocked. It is therefore proposed to extend the existing “No Stopping” zone 5m east, to increase the sight lines at this intersection and improve safety.

 

Financial Implications

4.      Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $150

 

Community Engagement

5.        The residents in this vicinity have been notified of the proposed extension of the “No Stopping” zone on the southern side of Norman Street, Allawah. Two residents have contacted Council to provide comments. Both residents commented that the issue had arisen due to a large truck parked in this location, impacting on the sight lines; they also agreed that this location was impacted due to the location of the two large trees. One resident is not in favour of the loss of parking, the other has indicated the changes should still proceed to prevent any larger vehicles parking in this location.

6.        Due to the location of the existing significant street trees and the safety concerns when larger vehicles are parked in this location, the loss of on-street parking is justified in this instance.

Recommendation

That the existing 6m “Bus Zone, 8am-9.30am, 2.30pm-4pm, School Days”, “2P, 9.30am-2.30pm, Mon-Fri” zone and existing 7m “Bus Zone, 8am-9.30am, 2.30pm-4pm”, “P5, 9.30am-2.30pm” be converted to a 13m “No Parking, 8am-9.30am, 2.30pm-4pm, School Days” zone, “P5, 9.30am-2.30pm, Mon-Fri” zone, as shown on the plan TC 1655 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

Item:                   TAC168-17        Benwerrin Avenue Carss Park - Proposed No Stopping Zone 

Author:              Assistant Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

Recommendation

(a)     That a 27m “No Stopping” zone be installed on the western side of Benwerrin Avenue adjacent to 25 Benwerrin Avenue, Carss Park, as shown on the plan TC 1640 attached to the report.

(b)     That a 24m “No Stopping” zone be installed on the eastern side of Benwerrin Avenue, adjacent to 20 Benwerrin Avenue, Carss Park.

 

Executive Summary

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the proposed installation of “No Stopping” zones on the eastern and western sides of Benwerrin Avenue, along the curve adjacent to 25 Benwerrin Avenue, Carss Park.

 

Background

2.      A request was received by Council from a resident of Benwerrin Street to consider implementing parking restrictions along the curve of Benwerrin Street to improve safety when navigating this section of road.

3.      Following investigations by Council officers, it was found that vehicles travelling south on Benwerrin Avenue, had a tendency to cut the corner or drive directly along the existing BB Centreline. When vehicles were parking on the western side this driver behaviour caused a hazard to northbound traffic. It is proposed to install “No Stopping” zones on both sides of Benwerrin Avenue, to allow for a greater area for vehicles to travel, increasing safety in this location.

 

Financial Implications

4.      Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $600

 

Community Engagement

5.        The residents in this vicinity have been notified of the proposed installation of the “No Stopping” zones on Benwerrin Avenue, Carss Park. One resident contacted Council in favour of the proposal. One resident contacted Council in favour of the restriction on the western side Benwerrin Avenue, but thought the loss of parking on the eastern side of Benwerrin Avenue was not justified.

6.        The proposed “No Stopping” zone on the eastern side of Benwerrin Avenue would result in a greater width of roadway for southbound traffic when navigating the bend in the road. At present vehicles are cutting the corner when travelling south, by eliminating parking in this location vehicles would be able to take a wider turn. Therefore the “No Stopping” zone in this location is still justified.

Item:                   TAC169-17        Scott Street, Mortdale - Introduction of No Trucks 3T and Over Restriction  

Author:              Senior Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

Recommendation

(a)     THAT a ‘No Trucks, 3T and over’ restriction be installed in Scott Street at all approaches to Scott Street from Boundary Road, Delves Street and Forest Road, Mortdale.

(b)     THAT a TMP outlining the restriction be submitted to RMS for approval.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report is seeking the traffic committee’s approval to install a load limit restriction of 3T and over in Scott Street, Mortdale between Forest Road and Boundary Road, Mortdale.

 

Background

 

2.   Council has received concerns from residents regarding the increase in heavy vehicles using Scott Street, Mortdale to reach the industrial area in Boundary Road Mortdale.

3.   Scott Street is divided into two sections with one section between Forest Road and Delves Street and another between Delves Street and Boundary Road, Mortdale.

 

4.   Residents have reported that trucks accessing the industrial area in Boundary Road have been utilising Scott Street to travel between Boundary Road and Forest Road Mortdale as a “rat run”.

 

5.   Parallel to Scott Street is Wattle Street and Mavis Avenue and both these streets also connect Boundary Road to Forest Road, however both these streets have a load limit installed, restricting trucks over 3T to pass through them.

 

6.   This in turn has deterred trucks to use Scott Street as it doesn’t have the Load Limit restriction.

 

7.   To ascertain the concerns raised by the residents Council carried out a comprehensive traffic count in Scott Street, Mortdale, where the count revealed that 5.1% of the vehicles that accessed Scott Street during the study period were heavy vehicles.  Anything above 2% heavy vehicles is considered high for a local street.

 

8.   In order to address the concerns raised by residents, it is proposed to install a ‘No Trucks, 3t and Over’ restriction in Scott Street at all its approaches from Boundary Road, Delves Street and Forest Road, Mortdale. These restrictions indicate that a driver of a vehicle over 3 tonnes GVM (except the driver of a bus) must not drive past the sign. This rule does not apply if the driver has a destination which lies within the subject Street.

Financial Implications

9.      Within budget allocation. RMS Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $750.

Item:                   TAC173-17        Stoney Creek Road Kingsgrove - Proposed pedestrian fence extension 

Author:              Assistant Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

Recommendation

(a)     That the existing pedestrian fence on the northern side of Stoney Creek Road, adjacent to Arkana College, be extended 10m east.

(b)     That a detailed design be submitted to RMS for approval.

 

Executive Summary

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the extension of the existing pedestrian fence on Stoney Creek Road, adjacent to Arkana College, Kingsgrove.

 

Background

2.      Council has received a request from the Principal of Arkana College to consider extending the existing pedestrian fence on Stoney Creek Road, by 10m to cover both of the school exits facing the road.

3.      Currently there is an 11m pedestrian fence on the northern side of Stoney Creek Road, directly opposite the intersection of Stoney Creek Road and Smiths Avenue.

4.      At a former Hurstville Council Traffic Advisory Committee on Thursday 3rd March 2011, there was a request for a pedestrian fence to be installed along the full frontage of Arkana College. The following was recommended by the Committee;

“That the request for a pedestrian fence outside Arkana College along Stoney Creek Road, Kingsgrove be referred to the RTA for consideration and recommendation as Stoney Creek Road is a State Road, under the jurisdiction of the RTA.”

5.      At a former Hurstville Council Traffic Advisory Committee on Thursday 7th July 2011, the formal response from the RTA was;

“Unfortunately all funding for pedestrian fencing for this financial year has been allocated. Should further funding become available (the) request will be investigated further."

          The following was recommended by the Committee;

                   “That the RTA advice be received and noted.

Further that the RTA be requested to give this matter a higher priority when funding is available.”

6.      In July 2013, RMS installed 10 metres of pedestrian fencing on the northern side of Stoney Creek Road, outside Arkana College, this asset was then handed over to Council to maintain, as it is located behind the kerb on Council land.

7.      A request was then received by Council to extend this pedestrian fencing along the full frontage of Arkana College. At a former Hurstville Council Meeting on 12th August 2013, the following was resolved;

“Resolved that the matter be deferred pending further information from the Local Member and State Government.

 

Further That Council write to the Local Member Mr Mark Coure MP seeking the outcome of the College’s representation to the State Government.”

8.      On the 31st January 2014, Mr Mark Coure MP, was advised by Council that consideration would be given at a future Council meeting for funding of this project under the Community Building Partnership program. This project was not awarded funding under this program.

9.      An email sent to Council in mid-November 2017, requesting Council extend the existing pedestrian fence by 10m to cover both school entrances and exits. There were also details enclosed of a vehicle exiting the roadway and crashing into the school’s front fence.

Comments

10.    Based on the amount of vehicles travelling on Stoney Creek Road and the safety factors involved with a school in this location, it is proposed that the existing pedestrian fence on the northern side of Stoney Creek Road, adjacent to Arkana College, be extended 10m east.

 

Financial Implications

11.    Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $15,000

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

Recommendation

(a)     That a 21m “Works Zone, 7am-5pm, Mon-Sat” be installed on the southern side of Railway Parade, adjacent to 218-222 Railway Parade, Kogarah, for a period of 58 weeks commencing on 15th January 2018, as shown on plan TC1661 attached to the report.

2.      Currently there is a “No Stopping” zone due to site line requirements of a pull-in, pick-up and drop-off zone of the existing development, which is no longer required. The proposed construction is adjacent to the Kogarah central business district and parking is not always available at this location

Proposal

3.      Upon investigation of this request, it is proposed to install a 21m “Works Zone, 7am-5pm, Mon-Sat” adjacent to 218-222 Railway Parade, Kogarah for a period of 58 weeks. This would provide an area where the vehicles involved in the construction of the new mixed use development can park in close proximity to the worksite.
