Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

Recommendation

(a)     That the 26m “1P, 8.30am – 6pm Mon – Fri, 8.30am – 12.30pm Sat” zone on the southern side of Railway Parade, Kogarah, west of Blake Street, be converted to a “Works Zone” 7am – 5pm Mon – Sat” zone, for a period of 33 weeks commencing on 15 December 2017, as shown on plan TC1664 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 in Railway Parade, Kogarah.

Background

 

2.      The builder for a Council approved development involving the construction of a residential flat building at No.’s 250 – 258 Railway Parade, Kogarah has requested the installation of a 26m “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 signposted as “1P, 8.30am – 6pm Mon – Fri, 8.30am – 12.30pm Sat” and as a result vehicles at the site would have to be moved every hour, resulting in a loss of productivity.

 

Proposal

 

4.      Upon investigation of this request, it is proposed to convert the 26m “1P, 8.30am – 6pm Mon – Fri, 8.30am – 12.30pm Sat” zone on the southern side of Railway Parade, west of Blake Street, to a “Works Zone” 7am – 5pm Mon – Sat” zone, for a period of 33 weeks commencing on 15 December 2017.  This would provide an area where the vehicles involved in the construction of the new residential flat building can park in close proximity to the worksite.

Financial Implications

 

5.      No budget impact for this report.

Item:                   TAC004-18        Commercial Road, Kingsgrove - Proposed "Loading Zone" 

Author:              Trainee Assets Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

Recommendation

That 12m of the existing “1P, 8:30am – 6pm, Mon-Fri, 8:30am – 12:30pm, Sat” zone on the southern side of Commercial Road, Kingsgrove, adjacent to numbers 1 - 5, be converted to a “Loading Zone, 8:30am – 6pm, Mon-Fri, 8:30am – 12:30pm, Sat”,  as shown on plan TC1663 attached to the report.

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the proposed conversion of the 12m “1P, 8:30am – 6:00pm, Mon-Fri, 8:30am – 12:30pm, Sat” be converted into “Loading Zone, 8:30am – 6:00pm, Mon-Fri, 8:30am – 12:30pm, Sat” on the southern side of Commercial Road, Kingsgrove, adjacent Number’s 1-5.

 

Background

 

2.      A request was received by Council from a local business owner on Commercial Road, Kingsgrove, to consider the conversion of part of the “1P, 8:30am – 6pm, Mon-Fri, 8:30am – 12:30pm, Sat”  zone to a “Loading Zone, 8:30am – 6pm, Mon-Fri, 8:30am – 12:30pm, Sat” on the southern side of Commercial Road, Kingsgrove, adjacent numbers 1 - 5. This will allow for deliveries to take place in the vicinity, reducing the need for vehicles to park illegally.

 

3.      Due to the large number of commercial businesses and close proximity to Kingsgrove Train Station, this section of Commercial Road is continually parked out and larger vehicles required for deliveries are unable to find safe, legal parking areas to service nearby businesses.

 

Proposal

 

4.      Following investigations by Council officers, it was found that there was insufficient parking in the area for delivery vehicles to safely park. It is proposed to install a “Loading Zone, 8:30am – 6:00pm, Mon-Fri, 8:30am – 12:30pm, Sat” that would lead to safe deliveries to businesses in this vicinity.

 

Financial Implications

 

5.      Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $100.

 

Community Engagement

 

6.      Community engagement was conducted including: A letter drop was conducted to the affected businesses along Commercial Road on the proposal to install a “Loading Zone” in this location. The closing date for submission was 12th January 2018. No objections were received.

Item:                   TAC008-18        Park Street, Peakhurst - Request for "Disabled Parking" 

Author:              Senior Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

Recommendation

That the first angled parking space along the northern side of Park Street, closest to Forest Road, Peakhurst be signposted to be a “Disabled Parking” space with associated kerb ramps to be installed to conform to current Australian Standards.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.    This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for converting one of the angled parking spaces along the northern side of Park Street, Peakhurst to a “Disabled Parking” space.

 

Background

 

2.    Council received a representation from Mr David Coleman, MP for Banks on behalf of his constituent, a resident with mobility difficulties, requesting Council to consider installing a disabled parking space in Park Street, Peakhurst, near the shops.

 

3.    Park Street Peakhurst located between Forest Road and Rona Street has approximately 10 businesses that are predominately located along its northern frontage.

 

4.    To service the parking demands of these businesses there are 12 angled parking spaces along the northern side of Park Street, none of which cater for disabled parking.

 

5.    “AS2890.5-1993 - Parking Facilities for On-Street Parking” stipulates that an angled parking space needs to be a minimum of 3.2m wide for disabled parking. 

 

6.    The first space along the northern side of Park Street (nearest to Forest Road) is the widest space, measuring 3.1m in width.  Whilst it falls short by 0.1m, the space is still considered wide enough to accommodate the objectives that require a disabled parking space to be wider than any other space.

 

7.    Accordingly it is recommended that the first angled parking space along the northern side of Park Street, closest to Forest Road Peakhurst, be signposted to be a “Disabled Parking” space with associated kerb ramps to be installed to conform to current Australian Standards.

 

Financial Implications

 

8.    Within budget allocation. RMS Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $1,900.

3.      Due to the ‘Pick Up/Drop Off’ zone on the southern side of Russell Lane it can be observed that vehicles are queuing at the intersection of St Georges Parade. As a result, there has been traffic congestion occurring in the street during the morning and afternoon peak periods with drivers accessing St Raphael’s Catholic Primary School.

 

Proposal

 

4.      Following investigations by Council officers, it is proposed to install a 16m “No Stopping, 8am – 9.30am, 2.30pm – 4pm, School Days” zone on the south-western side of St Georges Parade. This would lead to an improvement in traffic flow and increase the safety for all road users during these periods.

 

Financial Implications

Author:              Trainee Assets Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

Recommendation

(a)     That a 30m “Bus Zone” be installed adjacent to 20 Trafalgar Street, Peakhurst, to formalise the existing Bus Stop.

(b)     That a 30m “Bus Zone” with associated DDA standard slab be installed adjacent to number 31 Trafalgar Street, Peakhurst, to formalise the existing Bus Stop.

(e)     That a statutory 10m “No Stopping” zone and a 20m “Bus Zone” with associated DDA standard slab be installed adjacent to number 154 Lorraine Street, Peakhurst Heights, to formalise the existing Bus Stop.

(f)      That a 30m “Bus Zone” be installed adjacent Tucker Reserve in Sunshine Parade, Peakhurst Heights, to formalise the existing Bus Stop.

(h)     That a statutory 10m “No Stopping” zone and a 20m “Bus Zone” with associated DDA standard slab be installed adjacent to number 18 Bayview Road, Peakhurst Heights, to formalise the existing Bus Stop.

 

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Traffic Committee’s approval to formalise the existing Bus Stops in the Peakhurst and Peakhurst Heights area.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received representation from Punchbowl Bus Company requesting Council to formalise the existing Bus Stops located in Trafalgar Street Peakhurst as well as Pindari Road, Sunshine Parade, Waterside Parade and Bayview Road Peakhurst Heights by signposting them as “Bus Zones”.

 

3.      Formalising the “Bus Zone” will enable buses to pull in and out of the bus stop without being hindered by parked cars and allow for easier enforcement.

 

 

4.      According to the current standards, a Bus Zone should be at least 30m long (30m on the approach side and 10m on the departure side). The 10m length on the departure side can be accommodated within an area restricted for parking (such as “No Parking” or “No Stopping” zones).

 

Proposal

 

5.      Upon investigation of these requests, Council is proposing the formalisation of the existing Bus Stops by installation “Bus Zones” in the Peakhurst and Peakhurst Heights area that would assist the bus movements in these locations. 

 

6.      Some of these “Bus Zones” will also require the construction of concrete slabs with Tactile Ground Surface Indicators (TGSI) to comply with DDA standards.

 

Financial Implications

 

7.      Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $8,500.

 

Community Engagement

 

8.      Community engagement will be conducted including: a letter drop outlining Traffic Advisory Committee’s recommendations of the proposed changes to the affected residents.

Item:                   TAC013-18        Broadarrow Road, Riverwood - Proposed Pedestrian Refuge Island 

Author:              Trainee Assets Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

Recommendation

(a)     That the Traffic Advisory Committee approve the City of Canterbury Bankstown Council endorsed Pedestrian Refuge in Broadarrow Road, Riverwood with associated “No Stopping” and “Bus Zones”.

(b)     That a 43m “No Stopping” zone following a 15m “Bus zone” be installed on the southern side of Broadarrow Road, Riverwood at the corner of Bonds Road as shown on plan TC0041 attached to the report.

(c)     That the statutory 10m “No Stopping” zone be installed on the south western corner of the intersection of Broadarrow Road and Mona Road, Riverwood.

(d)     That the City of Canterbury Bankstown Council be notified of the Traffic Advisory Committee’s decision.

 

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed Pedestrian Refuge Island as endorsed by the City of Canterbury Bankstown Council and surrounding “No Stopping” and “Bus Zones” in Broadarrow Road, Riverwood.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received representations from the City of Canterbury Bankstown Council to consider the approval of the proposed Pedestrian Refuge Island in Broadarrow Road Riverwood, at the corner of Bonds Road. The City of Canterbury Bankstown Council’s Traffic Advisory Committee has approved the proposal on 28th November 2017 and was endorsed by Canterbury Bankstown’s Council held on 12th December 2017.

 

3.      Broadarrow Road is classified as a collector road maintained by the City of Canterbury Bankstown Council (north side) and Georges River Council (south side). Bonds Road is a regional road north of Broadarrow Road located within the City of Canterbury Bankstown Council (CBC) Local Government Area (LGA) and collector road south of Broadarrow Road in Georges River Council LGA. Broadarrow Road is a bus route with Bus Stops in close proximity to the proposed development.

 

4.      Correspondence has been received from NSW Land and Housing Corporation, Department of Family and Community Services (FACS), to review and approve the design of a pedestrian refuge island as part of the proposed Seniors Living Development at 149-151 Broadarrow Road, Riverwood, so that residents can safely access community services on the south side of Broadarrow Road. 

 

 

5.      The proposed redevelopment site is located on the north side of Broadarrow Road at No. 149-151 Broadarrow Road, Riverwood which is currently occupied by two individual residential dwellings.  The proposed development comprises of 10 units of which 3 are single bedroom and 7 double bedrooms.  9 off-street car parking spaces are also provided within the property.

 

6.      McLaren Traffic Engineering (MLTE) were engaged to undertake a Road Safety Audit of the Senior Housing Development to identify relevant risks to all road users with respect to the proposed driveway location and also to advise on safe pedestrian crossing for the senior residents to access the bus stop on the opposite side.  The assessment revealed that the development lacked a facility for elderly to safely cross the road.

 

7.      MLTE proposed the installation of a pedestrian refuge island in Broadarrow Road approximately 40m east of the Broadarrow Road/Bonds Road roundabout and will be located in front of 155 Broadarrow Road. The proposed location of the refuge which is as close as possible to the roundabout is based on the fact that pedestrians (particularly elderly) will have to be cautious of only eastbound vehicles that would already have slowed down at the roundabout.  If the refuge was to be located east of Mona Road (as suggested by Georges River Council) pedestrians crossing from the south side would have to view through vehicles from the west along Broadarrow Road and also right turning vehicles from Mona Road.  With the proposed location only one driveway access will be affected compared to four (168, 170, 143 and 145) if the proposed refuge was to be located further east.  Furthermore loss of kerbside parking would be minimal when the proposed pedestrian crossing location is closer to the roundabout compared to the further east location.  The island is designed in line with “Australian Standard AS1742.10”.

 

Proposal

 

8.      That the proposed pedestrian refigure island design and location provided by the City Canterbury Bankstown Council be approved

 

9.      As the southern side of Broadarrow Road falls under Georges River Council, it is proposed that Council adopts the recommendations provided by the City of Canterbury Bankstown Council and formalise the Bus Stop to a 15m “Bus Zone” on the southern side of Broadarrow Road, Riverwood as well as a 43m “No Stopping” zone to assist in traffic movements once the pedestrian refuge is installed.

 

10.    It is also proposed to install statutory 10m “No Stopping” zones on the south western corner of Broadarrow Road and Mona Road to increase safety for all road users navigating this intersection.

 

Financial Implications

 

11.    No budget impact for this report. All civil and traffic related works be undertaken by Council with all costs borne by FACS.

 

Community Engagement

 

12.    FACS notified all the affected residents on both sides of Broadarrow Road regarding the proposed installation of pedestrian refuge and the new ‘No Stopping’ zones.  Only one resident expressed concern regarding the location of the proposed pedestrian refuge island and the loss of on-street car parking spaces.  The resident’s concern was addressed by the Director of FACS informing him of the reasons why this was the preferred location.  There would be a loss of one parking space on the south side and approximately 5 spaces on the north side, as a result of the installation of the proposed pedestrian refuge and “No Stopping” zones. The installation of the “No Stopping” signs is mandatory as per the “RMS Technical Direction TDT 2011/01a”. In addition the City of Canterbury Bankstown Council sent out consultation letter to affected residents on Council’s behalf and also consultation by door knocking was undertaken as follow up.  There were no concerns raised by the residents regarding the proposal.

Item:                   TAC014-18        Forest Road, Hurstville outside Hurstville Public School - Relocation of "Bus Zone" 

Author:              Senior Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

Recommendation

(a)     THAT the existing “Bus Zone” outside Hurstville Public School be shifted 12m to the south and shortened from 50m to be 45m to allow for Council to install a pedestrian fence outside the school gate on Forest Road.

(b)     THAT a “No Stopping” restriction be installed outside “Gate 3” of Hurstville Public School on Forest Road, Hurstville.

(c)     THAT Hurstville Public School be advised of Council’s decision.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Traffic Committee’s recommendation to shorten the “Bus Zone” on Forest Road outside Hurstville Public School. 

 

Background

 

2.      Council received representation from Hurstville Public School requesting that the “Bus Zone” outside the school gates fronting Forest Road, Hurstville be shortened.

 

3.      Currently existing outside Hurstville Public School there is approximately a 50m “Bus Zone” along the western side of Forest Road. This caters for students pick up and drop off as well as buses for excursions.

 

4.      To cater for the buses picking up and dropping off students along the subject bus stops there are gaps in the pedestrian fences outside the school gates located on Forest Road to allow for the buses to pull up and let the students out through the gaps in the fences.

 

5.      However, the gaps in the pedestrian fence also prevent the school from opening their gates located on Forest Road, in fear of children spilling onto busy Forest Road and endangering their lives.

 

6.      Accordingly, the school has requested that the gaps in the pedestrian fence be closed and that the “Bus Zone” be relocated further south, to allow the school to open one of their gates along Forest Road, for their children to utilise.

 

7.      The School advised that opening “Gate 3” along Forest Road, Hurstville for the children to utilise will relief the congestion at the other exit points for the school such as in Kenwyn Street, Hurstville.

 

8.      To close the gaps in the fence, 18m of the “Bus Zone” will need to be removed and the “Bus Zone” shifted further south.

 

9.      At the southern end of the “Bus Zone” there is a 12m zone of “No Parking, 6.30am-9.30am, Mon-Fri” and “No Stopping, 2.30pm-3.30pm, School Days”.  The zone is unrestricted outside these times.

 

10.    Accordingly it is recommended that the above mentioned zone be changed to a “Bus Zone” to compensate for the shift of the “Bus Zone” to the southern end. 

 

11.    The above changes will result in the shortening of the “Bus Zone” to be 45m instead of 50m.  This is still considered acceptable as buses will still have ample room to be able to pull in and out as the area outside the gate will be restricted to “No Stopping”.

 

 

       

 

Financial Implications

 

12.    Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $100.

Item:                   TAC015-18        Letitia Street, Oatley - Proposed Changes near Oatley RSL Club 

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

Recommendation

(a)     That 8m of the existing “2P, 8.30am – 6pm Mon – Fri, 8.30am – 12pm Sat” on the western side of Letitia Street, adjacent to Oatley RSL, be converted to “No Parking, 4pm – Midnight, Buses Excepted”.

(b)     That the existing Dividing Barrier Line in Letitia Street, south of Frederick Street, be extended by 55m, as shown on plan TC1678 attached to the report.

(c)     That Oatley RSL be advised of Council’s decision.

Executive Summary

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of proposed changes in Letitia Street, Oatley near the RSL Club.

Background

2.      Council has received a request from a representative of Oatley RSL to consider changes in the street near the Club.

 

3.      A site meeting was held with Council and the Club representative on Friday 12 January to discuss their issues.

 

4.      The Club indicated that many people do U-turns directly outside the Club and they are concerned that a vehicle may mount he footpath area trying to turn around quickly.  The Club also mentioned that their courtesy bus has difficulty parking outside the Club due to the existing timed parking restrictions in Letitia Street and they requested if these could be also be reviewed.

Proposal

5.      As a result of the issues raised by Oatley RSL Club, Council is proposing the installation of a dividing barrier line outside the Club.  This would deter people from doing a U-turn in this section of Letitia Street and lead to an improvement in safety for road users.

 

6.      It is also proposed to convert 8m of the existing “2P, 8.30am – 6pm Mon – Fri, 8.30am – 12:30pm Sat” zone on the western side of Letitia Street, adjacent to the Club entrance, to a “No Parking, 4pm – Midnight, Buses Excepted”.  This would provide an area for the courtesy bus to park and also allow people to pick up and drop off patrons at the entrance during these times.

 

Financial Implications

7.      Within budget allocation RMS Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $1,000.

Item:                   TAC016-18        Forest Road, Lugarno - Proposed "Bus Zone" near Tate Place 

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

Recommendation

To be considered by the Committee.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of a proposed “Bus Zone” in Forest Road near Tate Place, Lugarno.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received a request from a representative of Punchbowl Bus Company for the following to be considered for adoption in Forest Road between Tate Place and Margaret Crescent, Lugarno at the existing Bus Stop:

 

·      Formalise the “No Stopping” restrictions at the intersections;

·      Install an 18-20m “Bus Zone”;

·      Remove the centreline parallel to the proposed “Bus Zone”;

·      Install warning signs approaching the intersection advising “Buses Turning”.

 

3.      This proposal has been sent to the nearby residents and Council has received a formal objection to the requested changes.  Plan TC1680 indicating the proposal is attached to the report.

 

4.      The resident has advised that when buses are parked on Forest Road between Margaret Crescent and Tate Place at the Bus Stop, it forces other drivers onto the incorrect side of the road at the bend and is a safety risk.  Measurements taken by Council staff onsite have determined that the distance between the edge of the kerb and centreline is 5.4 metres. 

 

Comments

 

5.      There is an existing “Bus Zone” in Forest Road, directly south of the Tate Place intersection. This was installed to provide a location where the buses could “lay over” before commencing their route.  It has however been observed that drivers have instead been using the Bus Stop between Margaret Crescent and Tate Place to wait resulting in the bus being parked on the bend of Forest Road for an extended duration.

 

6.      Council has requested Punchbowl Bus Company to provide information on the number of patrons that are picked up and dropped off at the Bus Stop in this location but this data has not been provided.

 

7.      The following photo indicates the location of the existing Bus Stop and shelter on the bend of Forest Road between Margaret Crescent and Tate Place.  The shelter is in quite poor condition with a significant amount of rust.

 

 

8.        The existing dividing barrier line was installed to ensure that drivers travel on the correct side of the road on the bend and as a result Council is not in favour of its removal, as requested.  Due to the width of the road, the line cannot be relocated towards the east as the residents would lose their street parking.

 

9.        The next Bus Stop on Forest Road is located adjacent to Hadfield Reserve approximately 150m to the north of Margaret Crescent.  This stop also has an existing bus seat and footpath adjacent to the alighting area.

 

Financial Implications

 

10.    To be determined.

Author:              Senior Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

Recommendation

THAT the warning sign W2-206-1 “Caution Driveways” sign be installed at both approaches to the bend in Erang Street, Carss Park.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the committee’s consideration to install the warning signs W2-206-1 “Caution Driveways” at both approaches to the bend on Erang Street Carss Park.

 

Background

 

2.      Council received representation from a resident in Erang Street in regards to road safety concerns due to lack of visibility around the bend in Erang Street, Carss Park.

 

3.      It was advised that on many occasions the resident witnessed many near misses as cars come around the bend in Erang Street while other cars are exiting their driveways.

 

4.      A site inspection has revealed that the problem of the site distance around the bend is exacerbated by the planting of a dense shrub hedge acting as a privacy fence on one of the resident’s property. However the hedge is completely within the resident’s private property.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Proposal

 

5.      To help in raising awareness of the lack of visibility around the bend in Erang Street, it is recommended that the warning sign W2-206-1 “Caution Driveways” as per below image be installed at both approaches to the bend.

 

 

Financial Implications

 

6.      Within budget allocation – RMS’s Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $500.

Item:                   TAC018-18        Douglas Haig Street, Oatley - Proposed "Bus Zone" 

Author:              Assistant Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

Recommendation

(a)     That a 20m “Bus Zone, Mon - Sat” be installed on the northern side of Douglas Haig Street, Oatley.

(b)     That a 10m “No Stopping” be installed on the northern side of Douglas Haig Street, Oatley, west of the intersection of McIntyre Street as shown on the plan TC1676 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the proposed installation of a 20m “Bus Zone, Mon - Sat” and 10m “No Stopping” zone, on the northern side of Douglas Haig Street, Oatley.

 

Background

 

2.      A request was received by Council from Punchbowl Bus Company to formalise the existing Bus Stop on the northern side of Douglas Haig Street with a 20m “Bus Zone” and 10m “No Stopping” zone, due to vehicles parking in the area and preventing buses from safely pulling up to the kerb to drop-off and pick-up passengers.

 

3.      Following investigations by Council officers, it was found that vehicles were parking within the designated distance for the bus stop. It is proposed to install a 20m “Bus Zone, Mon - Sat” and 10m “No Stopping” zone to prevent vehicles parking in this location. This will allow for buses to stop parallel to the kerb, improving safety for drivers and bus commuters.

 

Financial Implications

 

4.      Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $350.

 

Community Engagement

 

5.        The residents in this vicinity have been notified of the proposed installation of a “Bus Zone” on the northern side of Douglas Haig Street, Oatley. No objections were received.

Author:              Senior Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

Recommendation

(a)     THAT a 20m “Bus Zone” be installed along the eastern side of Forest Road, Peakhurst outside No. 827A to formalise the existing bus stop, followed by the statutory “ No Stopping” restriction.

(b)     THAT a 20m “Bus Zone” be installed along the western side of Forest Road, Peakhurst outside No. 950 Forest Road Peakhurst to formalise the existing bus stop, followed by an 80m “No Stopping” restriction to the roundabout at the intersection of Forest Road and Belmore Road.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration to formalise existing Bus Stops on Forest Road, Peakhurst and install “No Stopping” restrictions.

 

Background

 

2.      Council received representation from a resident with road safety concerns in regards to illegal parking behaviour on Forest Road, Peakhurst near property number 950.

 

3.      The resident advised that nearby residents and local traffic have experienced inconveniences and hazards from cars and trucks parking within the bus stops and within 3 meters of double centre lines as well as parking and blocking driveways at the subject location.

 

4.      A site inspection has revealed that the Bus Stops along both sides of Forest Road (near the roundabout at the intersection of Forest Road and Belmore Road) are not signposted as “Bus Zones” and accordingly some people do not realise that this is a bus stop and they park illegally.  Signposting the bus stops on either side of Forest Road, Peakhurst would help ameliorate this concern.

 

5.      Furthermore, it is recommended that an 80m “No Stopping” restriction be installed along the western side of Forest Road from the “Bus Zone” all the way to the roundabout at the intersection of Belmore Road and Forest Road, and on the eastern side, the Statutory “No Stopping” at the intersection of Forest Road and Boatwright Avenue, Peakhurst.

 

Financial Implications

 

6.      Within budget allocation - RMS Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $1,500.

Item:                   TAC020-18        Gardinia Street, Riverwood - Proposed "Bus Zone" extension 

Author:              Assistant Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

Recommendation

That the existing “Bus Zone” on the northern side of Gardinia Street, Riverwood, be extended by 6m eastward, as shown on the plan TC1677 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the proposed 6m extension of the existing “Bus Zone” on the northern side of Gardinia Street, Riverwood.

 

Background

 

2.      A request was received by Council from Punchbowl Bus Company to extend the existing “Bus Zone” on the northern side of Gardinia Street, due to vehicles parking on the edges of the existing “Bus Zone” preventing buses from safely pulling up to and away from the kerb to pick-up and drop-off passengers.

 

3.      Following investigations by Council officers, it was found that the existing “Bus Zone” was only 22m and if vehicles parked on both sides of the existing “Bus Zone” it prevented buses from pulling up to and away from the kerb safely. It is therefore proposed to extend the existing “Bus Zone” by 6m to prevent vehicles parking in this location. This will allow for buses to stop parallel to the kerb, improving safety for drivers and bus commuters.

 

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 6m extension of the existing “Bus Zone” on the northern side of Gardinia Street, Riverwood. No objections were received.

2.      A request was received from a local resident to investigate the intersection of Macken Street and Gungah Bay Road, Oatley, in regards to the safety of vehicles and turning movements in particular those heading south on Gungah Bay Road and cutting the corner when turning into Macken Street.

 

3.      Following investigations by Council officers, it was observed that vehicles were cutting the corner when turning from Gungah Bay Road into Macken Street. This caused a hazard for vehicles travelling on Macken Street towards Gungah Bay Road. It is therefore proposed to install a 10m BB centreline with raised road pavement markers (RRPM’s), as well as “Give Way” signage and associated line marking.

 

Financial Implications

 

4.      Within budget allocation – RMS’s Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $3,000.

 

Community Engagement

 

5.      The residents in the vicinity were notified by letter of the proposal for the installation of a 10m BB centreline, “Give Way” signage and associated line marking. No objections were received.

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

Recommendation

(a)     That the existing 23m “No Parking, Authorised Club Vehicles Excepted” zone on the southern side of Ferry Avenue, west of Jubilee Avenue, be converted to “P, Beverley Park Golf Club Authorised Staff Only”, as shown on plan TC1681 attached to the report.

(b)     That Beverley Park Golf Club be advised of Council’s decision.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed changes to the parking zones in Ferry Avenue, Beverley Park.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has been requested to consider modifications to the existing signage adjacent to Beverley Park Golf Club in Ferry Avenue.

 

3.      Currently there is a 23m “No Parking, Authorised Club Vehicles Excepted” zone in Ferry Avenue and this zone is 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 in Ferry Avenue and replace with “P, Beverley Park Golf Authorised Club Staff Only”.

 

5.      Council will issue Beverley Park Golf Club staff permits that have conditions and are required to be displayed on the dashboard of the vehicle when parked in the permit excepted zone.

 

6.      The new signs will advise drivers that only Golf Club staff can legally park in this location and enable the Council Parking Officers to enforce the restrictions in this area of the road.  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 $100.

Item:                   TAC023-18        Cronulla Lane, Carlton - Proposed "No Parking" zone 

Author:              Assistant Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

Recommendation

That a 27m “No Parking” zone be installed on the western side of Cronulla Lane, Carlton, as shown on plan TC1675 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the proposed installation of a “No Parking” zone on the western side of Cronulla Lane, Carlton.

Background

2.      A request was received by Council from a resident of Botany Street, whose garage access is from Cronulla Lane. They have requested Council consider installing “No Parking” signs to prevent vehicles parking opposite to their, and neighbours garages, blocking access to their properties.

3.      Following investigations by Council officers, it was found that vehicles were parking opposite to the garages in this vicinity on Cronulla Lane, making it difficult for vehicles to enter and exit garages due to the narrowness of the laneway. It is therefore proposed to install a 27m “No Parking” zone in this location to prevent the long term parking of vehicles and allow for safe and easy access to and from the properties along Cronulla Lane.

Financial Implications

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

Community Engagement

5.      The residents in the vicinity have been notified of the proposed installation of the “No Parking” zone on the western side of Cronulla Lane, Hurstville. Council received feedback from two residents.

6.      One resident is in favour of the proposal.

7.      One resident is opposed to the proposal indicating that he feels this area is no busier or more significant in terms of traffic impact than other areas of our Local Government Area. There is a very low traffic volume in the area. This particular location should not be discriminated against, and either all of Cronulla Lane should be made “No Parking” or it should remain unchanged.

8.      Council investigates all requests from residents on a case-by-case basis. Council will assess other requests from residents in the vicinity as required. In this case as access to and from properties is being restricted by parked vehicles, the installation of “No Parking” signage is justified.

Item:                   TAC024-18        Targo Road, Beverley Park - Proposed "No Parking" zone extension 

Author:              Assistant Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

Recommendation

That the existing “No Parking, 4pm – Midnight, Tuesday, Midnight – Midday, Wednesday” zone on the southern side of Targo Road, Beverley Park, be extended by 16m as shown on the plan TC1674 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the 16m extension of the existing “No Parking, 4pm – Midnight, Tuesday, Midnight – Midday, Wednesday” zone on the southern side of Targo Road, Beverley Park.

 

Background

 

2.      A request was received by Council from a resident of 8 Targo Road, to consider the extension of the existing “No Parking, 4pm – Midnight, Tuesday, Midnight – Midday, Wednesday” zone, to allow for adequate space for bins to be placed on the roadside for weekly collection.

 

3.      Following investigations by Council officers, it was observed that the current 8m “No Parking, 4pm – Midnight, Tuesday, Midnight – Midday, Wednesday” zone was not large enough to allow adequate spacing between bins or allow all of them to be placed on the roadside. This has resulted in some bins not being emptied and workers of collectors having to park and relocate bins. It is therefore proposed to extend the existing “No Parking, 4pm – Midnight, Tuesday, Midnight – Midday, Wednesday” zone by 16m to allow for an additional 7m of kerb space in which the bins can be placed on collection day. The proposal will allow for a more efficient collection and improve safety in the area during collection times.

 

Financial Implications

 

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

 

Community Engagement

 

5.      The residents in the vicinity have been notified of the proposed extension of the existing “No Parking, 4pm – Midnight, Tuesday, Midnight – Midday, Wednesday” zone. Council received feedback from five residents.

 

6.      Four residents were in favour of the proposal.

 

7.      One resident was against the proposal indicating that on-street parking was already at a premium in this location, and it should not be restricted at any time.  Due to the safety concerns that impact contractors and residents at this location, as well as passing vehicles, it is important to have a safe and efficient bin collection. In this instance the extension of the “No Parking, 4pm – Midnight, Tuesday, Midnight – Midday, Wednesday” zone, restricting one car space, is warranted.

Item:                   TAC025-18        Connells Point Road, South Hurstville - Proposed Extension of "Bus Zone"  

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

Recommendation

(a)     That the existing “Bus Zone” on the northern side of Connells Point Road, east of King Georges Road, be extended by 14m, as shown on RMS Plan P0032131 attached to the report.

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

(c)     That the parking restrictions on the southern side of Connells Point Road, east of King Georges Road, be reviewed and any proposed changes be presented at a future Traffic Advisory Committee meeting.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed modification to the existing “Bus Zone” in Connells Point Road.

 

Background

 

2.      The Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) is proposing to relocate bus stop (222149) outside No. 47 Connells Point Road which would allow for two (2) buses to use the bus change without holding up traffic through the intersection with King Georges Road.

 

3.      Currently there is congestion in the northbound lane of Connells Point Road just to the north of the intersection, particularly during peak times.  Traffic has been observed to queue behind buses using the bus stop causing congestion on the road network.

 

Proposal

 

4.      The RMS is proposing to convert 11m of the existing “Bus Zone” on the northern side of Connells Point Road with a “No Stopping” zone to prevent buses stopping in the narrow section of the road and improving vehicle travel movements.

 

5.      A 30m “Bus Zone” is then proposed adjacent to the “No Stopping” zone which requires the conversion of 14m of existing “1 Hour” parking to a “Bus Zone”. A new seat and alighting area for the bus patrons is also proposed.

 

6.      In mid-January, the RMS door knocked businesses and residents in this vicinity on the proposal to relocate the bus stop outside No. 47.  Some of the businesses expressed their disappointment with the loss of the “1 Hour” spaces to accommodate the additional bus; however they understood why the changes were required.  The businesses also raised the suggestion to implement short-term parking spaces on the southern side of Connells Point Road.   As a result, Council will investigate these requests and present a report to a future Traffic Advisory Committee meeting if the changes are feasible.

 

Financial Implications

 

7.      No budget impact for this report.
