Agenda Items

Item:                   TAC077-18        McPherson Street, Carlton - Proposed "Disabled Parking" zone 

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That a 5.5m “Disabled Parking” zone be installed on the southern side of McPherson Street, west of Andover Lane, as shown on plan TC1719 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed installation of a “Disabled Parking” zone in McPherson Street, Carlton.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received a request to investigate the feasibility of installing a “Disabled Parking” zone in McPherson Street, Carlton to assist residents with a Mobility Parking Scheme (MPS) Permit to park in the street.

 

3.      Signage for the statutory 10m “No Stopping” zones at the intersection of McPherson Street and Andover Lane was recently installed and as a result it has prevented residents from parking in that location.

 

4.      Council officers met with the residents on-site in early April 2018 and advised that the “No Stopping” zone could not be removed or reduced in length as it was installed in accordance with the requirements of the NSW Road Rules.  However Council indicated that options for parking would be considered.

 

Proposal

 

5.      Upon investigation of this request, Council is proposing to install a 5.5m “Disabled Parking” zone on the southern side of McPherson Street adjacent to the existing “No Stopping” zone.  This would provide an area where drivers holding a MPS Permit can park.

 

6.      Residents in this vicinity have been notified by letter of the proposed installation of the “Disabled Parking” zone.  The closing date for submissions was 16 April 2018.  No objections were received.

 

Financial Implications

 

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

Item:                   TAC078-18        Letitia Street, Oatley - Proposed Raised Pedestrian Crossing and Signage 

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

(a)     That a raised pedestrian crossing with associated signage, be installed in Letitia Street, adjacent to Oatley Public School, in accordance with the RMS Technical Directions, as shown on plan U624 attached to the report.

(b)     That the existing 38m unrestricted parking spaces on the western side of Letitia Street, adjacent to Oatley Public School be converted to a “No Parking, 8am – 9:30am, 2:30pm – 4pm, School Days” zone, as shown on plan TC1697 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of a raised pedestrian crossing and “No Parking” zone in Letitia Street, Oatley.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received a request from Councillor Sandy Grekas to investigate the traffic concerns near Oatley Public School.

 

3.      A site meeting with Council staff and representatives from Oatley Public School was conducted in December 2017 to discuss the traffic, parking and safety issues near the school.

 

4.      The school requested the following to be investigated:

 

a.   New pedestrian crossing in Letitia Street;

b.   A “No Parking” zone to be installed in Letitia Street;

c.   The “No Parking” zone in Neville Street to be extended; and

d.   The removal of the “Bus Zone” in Oatley Avenue.

 

Investigations

 

5.      The extension of the “No Parking” zone in Neville Street and the removal of the “Bus Zone” were presented and adopted at the 6 March 2018 meeting of the Traffic Advisory Committee.

 

Letitia Street

 

6.      The Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) Guidelines indicate that there are reduced crossing warrants for sites used predominately by children. The Guidelines for Traffic Facilities state that the reduced warrants conducted during two counts of one hour duration immediately before and after school hours are as follows:

 

·           The measured flows for Pedestrians (P) and Vehicles (V) are equal to or greater than 30 and 200 respectively.

7.      Council’s Traffic Officer conducted a pedestrian and vehicle count in Letitia Street, south of the roundabout at the Neville Street intersection adjacent to the school on Thursday 7 December 2017. The results of the count is detailed in the table below:

 

TIME

PEDESTRIANS (P)

VEHICLES (V)

8.50am – 9.50am

122

198

2.50pm – 3.50pm

118

201

 

8.      As can be seen in the table above, whilst the number of vehicles in the morning did not reach the required warrant, it was only 2 vehicles short and the warrants were met for all the other criteria for a crossing to be installed.

 

9.      A pedestrian and vehicle count had previously been conducted in this location at the request of the school on Wednesday 18 November 2015.  The results of that count are detailed below:

 

TIME

PEDESTRIANS (P)

VEHICLES (V)

8.40am – 9.40am

67

162

2.45pm – 3.45pm

114

153

 

10.    Comparing the counts conducted in 2015 with the most recent counts conducted in 2018 indicates that there has been an increase in the number of pedestrians and vehicles in Letitia Street and that a pedestrian crossing would be beneficial. This increase is consistent with advice form the school that student numbers have increased during this same period.

 

11.    The school also requested that the existing unrestricted parking spaces on the western side of Letitia Street be converted to a “No Parking” zone.  This would provide an additional area in the street for parents to utilise during the peak periods to drop off and pick up their children in close proximity to the school.

 

Proposal

 

12.    Council’s Design Section has completed a detailed survey of Letitia Street and proposed a pedestrian crossing to be installed adjacent number 54A.  This location was deemed the most appropriate due to existing residential driveways and significant cross-fall in Letitia Street closer to the Neville Street intersection.

 

13.     A detailed design of the pedestrian crossing with line marking and signage has been prepared in accordance with the Australian Standards 1742.10 – 2009, Guide to Traffic Management – Part 6 (Austroads) publication and the RMS Technical Direction TDT 2001/04b.

 

14.     As a result of the proposed crossing and associated “No Stopping” zones, there would be a loss of two standard car parking spaces (16 metres) adjacent to the residential properties and two car spaces adjacent to the school.

 

15.    Council is also proposing to convert 38m of currently unrestricted parking on the western side of Letitia Street, adjacent to Oatley Public School, to a “No Parking, 8am – 9:30am, 2:30pm – 4pm, School Days” zone that would prevent drivers parking all day and assist with parents dropping off and picking up their children near the school.

Consultation

 

16.    A consultation letter and plan outlining the proposal for a raised pedestrian crossing and “No Parking” zone adjacent to the school was sent to the nearby residents and the school on Thursday 8 March 2018.  Submissions on the proposal were requested to be received by Thursday 22 March 2018.  Council received two phone calls from residents objecting, two written letters of objections from residents and one letter of support from the Oatley Public School Advisory Group.

 

17.    As part of the feedback from residents during the consultation period, Council was requested to investigate the feasibility of a pedestrian crossing north of the Neville Street roundabout.  As a result of this request, a pedestrian and vehicle count was conducted in this alternative location on Wednesday 28 March 2018. The results of the count is detailed in the table below:

 

TIME

PEDESTRIANS (P)

VEHICLES (V)

8.50am – 9.50am

52

182

2.50pm – 3.50pm

164

175

 

18.    As can be seen in the table above, whilst the number of pedestrians meets the required warrants, the number of vehicles in both the morning and afternoon did not achieve the warrant and therefor a pedestrian crossing in Letitia Street, north of Neville Street cannot be recommended for installation at this time.

 

19.    The additional comments received from the objections and Council’s response are summarised in the table below:

 

Comments

Response

The proposed crossing introduces a range of parking restrictions, consisting of permanent “No Stopping” zones and “No Parking” zones during school peak times.

 

Council has considered the associated loss of parking and has incorporated concrete islands adjacent the crossing to reduce the number of car spaces removed.

Drivers already park illegally in Letitia Street and the new crossing would not improve the situation.

 

Drivers are required to park in accordance with the NSW Road Rules and Council has advised the Parking Rangers of the illegal parking occurring.

A similar crossing in Rosa Street, Oatley results in drivers queuing across the crossing and results in traffic flow disruption.

 

The crossing in Rosa Street has the drop off and pick up zone on the departure side of the crossing which results in queuing.  This design proposes the drop off and pick up zone on approach to the crossing to prevent vehicle queuing.

A crossing to the north of Neville Street would be more appropriate than the proposal.

As detailed in paragraph 17 above, the RMS warrants are not achieved to install a crossing in this location.

Amending existing “No Parking” to “No Standing” during current time restrictions would be more appropriate and would stop the school community misusing the zones.

 

The “No Parking” zone allows drivers to park for a maximum of 2 minutes and they must remain within 3m of the vehicle. This zone is used to drop off and pick up and is consistent with zoning around most schools.

 

 

 

The crossing is too far from Neville Street and how will jaywalking, litter and illegal parking be policed?

 

The proposal includes the removal of the pram ramps near Neville Street to encourage people to cross at the marked crossing and not jaywalk.

Was not consulted on the proposal to extend the “No Parking” zone by 5m in Neville Street or the conversion of the “Bus Zone” to a “No Parking” zone in Oatley Avenue.

 

These minor changes are an improvement to the parking situation around the school and as the changes were adjacent to the school in Neville Street and Oatley Avenue, residents in Letitia Street were not consulted.

A crossing similar to the one at Ashbury Public School in Trevenar Street, Campsie should be installed.  This crossing is identified by banner/flags and has parking restrictions only at the times of the operation of the crossing, outside the school morning and afternoon peak times, the parking restrictions are not in place. This is also a cheaper option.

 

The crossing in question is defined as a “Children’s Crossing” which is a part time facility catering primarily for school children.  It is only in operation when the crossing flags are displayed on the advance posts.  When the flags are not displayed, it is not a designated crossing and vehicles are not required to give way to pedestrians.  These types of crossings create confusion for drivers and pedestrians and their design results in loss of more on-street parking (when in operation) than the current proposal.  These types of crossings are also flush with the pavement and no not assist in reducing vehicle speed in the street.  For these reasons, Council was not in favour of installing this type of crossing in Letitia Street.

The principle entrance to the school is in Neville Street.

The school has advised that the entrance to the school from Letitia Street is being upgraded and students and parents will be encouraged to use this area. The Letitia street entrance is closely aligned to the proposed crossing location.

There would be a safety issue with the “No Parking” zone proposal between the trees adjacent to the school.

The health of the trees would be adversely affected.

Inspections by Council officers revealed that as this area is currently unrestricted parking, there is no opportunity for parents to drop off or pick up in Letitia Street as there are always cars in that area.  As a result, many parents were observed to illegally double park creating a significant safety issue for all road users.  The installation of the “No Parking” zone would create safer opportunities for parents to park in Letitia Street during the peak times and reduce the need to double park.

Nearby residents currently park in the area adjacent to the school and the “No Parking” restrictions will push them further down Letitia Street.

All nearby properties have off-street parking and the proposal to convert 4 unrestricted spaces to “No Parking, 8am – 9:30am, 2.30pm – 4pm, School Days” adjacent to the school is not deemed to have a significant negative impact on the street parking availability.  Outside these hours drivers can park unrestricted.

 

Other possible solutions should be explored by Council that are both innovative and safer that have been used by other Council’s in other Australian States, such as Port Phillip Council in Melbourne.

The design has been completed in accordance with the current RMS Technical Directions and Australian Standards. 

Consistent with advice previously provided to Council, locating any pedestrian crossings contrary to current NSW road rules, RMS advice and technical specification cannot be considered.

Failure to locate the crossing in accordance with the RMS rules and expert advice could lead to the Council as an organisation and Councillors individually, being personally liable to pay damages and legal costs in the event of a claim for injury, death, damage or loss.

 

20.    Council has considered all options to minimise the impact on local residents whilst also proposing a safe location for people to cross Letitia Street adjacent to Oatley Public School.

 

Financial Implications

 

21.    Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $500 for the signage and $80,000 to be allocated from Council’s Capital Works 2018/19 Budget for the pedestrian crossing.

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

(a)     That a 12m of the existing “2P, 8.30am – 6pm Mon – Fri, 8.30am – 12.30pm Sat” zone on the western side of Oatley Avenue, Oatley, be converted to a “Works Zone, 7am – 5pm Mon – Sat” zone for a period of 12 weeks commencing in June 2018, as shown on plan TC1731, Sheet 1 attached to the report.

(b)     That 12m of the existing “Bus Zone, Mon – Sat” on the eastern side of Oatley Parade, Oatley, be converted to a “Works Zone, 7am – 5pm Sat” and that 12m of the existing “2P, 8.30am – 6pm Mon – Fri, 8.30am – 12.30pm Sat” zone be converted to a “Bus Zone, Mon – Sat” for a period of 12 weeks commencing in June 2018, as shown on plan TC1731, Sheet 2 attached to the report.

(c)     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 Oatley Avenue and Oatley Parade, Oatley.

 

Background

 

2.      In June 2018 Council will be replacing the existing toilet block on the eastern side of Oatley Parade within Oatley Memorial Gardens. 

 

3.      In order to complete the project, a “Works Zone” has been requested to be installed in Oatley Avenue to provide access into the Memorial Gardens for larger construction vehicles when required.  This area is zoned as “2P” and vehicles cannot currently gain entry close to the toilet block due to the parked vehicles.

 

4.      Another “Works Zone” is required adjacent to the toilet block on Oatley Parade as this area is currently signposted as a “Bus Zone”.

 

5.      Council has consulted with Punchbowl Bus Company and there was no objection to relocating the “Bus Zone” towards the Frederick Street intersection for the duration of the “Works Zone” period.  This would require the removal of two (2) spaces signposted as “2P” however this is only temporary whilst the toilet block is being rebuilt and will be reinstated once the toilet block is complete.

 

Financial Implications

 

6.      No budget impact for this report.

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the proposed installation of parking restrictions and “Disabled Parking” zones on the southern side of Halstead Street, South Hurstville.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received a request from a local business owner to investigate the possibility of converting the currently unrestricted parking spaces on the southern side of Halstead Street to a timed parking zone to increase the parking turnover near the businesses and improve the parking availability for customers.

 

3.      Council received further representation to consider implementing signage to provide an area for people with a Mobility Parking Scheme (MPS) Permit to park in close proximity to the business park.

 

Proposal

 

4.      Following investigations by Council officers, it is proposed to convert 19m of unrestricted on-street parking spaces on the southern side of Halstead Street to a “2P, 8.30am – 6pm, Mon – Fri, 8.30am – 12.30pm, Sat” zone to assist nearby businesses with an increase in vehicle turnover in this location during these times.

 

5.      Furthermore, it is proposed to convert 6m of unrestricted parking to a “Disabled Parking Only, 8.30am – 6pm, Mon – Fri, 8.30am – 12.30pm, Sat” zone with associated kerb ramp to provide an area an area for people with a MPS permit to park in close proximity to the business park.

 

Financial Implications

 

6.      Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $2,000

 

 

 

Community Engagement

 

7.        Residents and businesses in the vicinity have been notified by letter of the proposed installation of the “2P” and “Disabled Parking Only” zones. The closing date for submissions was 20th April 2018, the following feedback were received;

 

a.    A resident objected, via email, to the proposal noting that the installation of restricted parking would move the existing cars that utilise the unrestricted parking further up Halstead Street, worsening congestion along the residential section of this road.

 

b.    A neighbouring business objected, via email, to the proposal noting that their business utilises pool cars in addition to staff private vehicles in excess of the amount of parking spaces available to them. The proposal would cause further issues to find on-street parking.

 

8.        The recommendation of the 19m “2P” zone is an amendment of a previous proposal which was for a 25m zone, taking into account the objections received and reducing the number of timed parking spaces proposed in the street.

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Traffic Committee’s approval to create two additional 1P parking spaces in Dora Street, Hurstville

Background

 

2.   Due to recent developments along Dora Street, Hurstville vehicular accesses were consolidated, resulting in a deletion of a driveway that had previously existed along the western side of Dora Street, north of Macmahon Street Hurstville.

3.   To allow easier ingress and egress to the driveway that had previously existed, Council had installed a No Parking restriction, south of the driveway.

4.   As the driveway no longer exists, the No Parking is no longer required and accordingly it is recommended to extend the existing 1P, 8.30am-3.00pm Mon-Fri, 8.30am-12.30pm Sat” and “No Parking 3pm-7pm Mon-Fri”, restriction along the western side of Dora Street  Hurstville, 12m south to create two extra parking spaces outside 1 Dora Street Hurstville.

Item:                   TAC089-18        Laneway, Beverly Hills - Proposed speed hump 

Author:              Assistant Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That a rubber speed hump be installed in the laneway between King Georges Road and Hampden Street, Beverly Hills, as per the plan TC1722 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committees consideration for the proposed installation of a speed hump in the laneway between King Georges Road and Hampden Street, Beverly Hills.

 

Background

 

2.      A request was received by a local resident, in regards to the safety of road users and pedestrians due to the reduced sight in the laneways at the intersection of the two laneways in Beverly Hills.

 

3.      Following investigation by Council officers, it was found that sight is severely impacted at this location, particularly at night. Due to the local amenities in the area there is a high level of pedestrian activity and vehicle movement through the laneways. It was also observed that many vehicles fail to reduce speed or stop at the existing “Stop” sign. It is therefore proposed to install a rubber speed hump in the laneway. This will force drivers to slow down approaching the intersection of the two lanes and increase safety in this location.

 

Financial Implications

 

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

 

Community Engagement

 

5.      The residents and businesses in the vicinity were notified by letter of the proposed installation of a rubber speed hump in the laneway. No objections were received and three residents called in support of the proposal.

Recommendation

That a 4m “No Parking, Motorcycles Excepted” zone by installed on Park Street, Peakhurst, adjacent to No. 5, as shown on the plan TC1726 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the proposed installation of a “No Parking, Motorcycles Excepted” zone on Park Street, Peakhurst.

 

Background

 

2.      A request was received by the Strata Corporation of 5 Park Street, Peakhurst, in regards to restricting vehicles parking at the small space of kerb adjacent to 5 Park Street and restricting access to properties.

 

3.      Upon investigations by Council officers, it was found that the length of kerb adjacent to these properties is approximately 4.2m in length which is less than the standard car length. It is therefore proposed to install a “No Parking, Motorcycles Excepted” zone. This will be prevent cars and larger vehicles parking in this location, but allow for motorcycles to utilise on-street parking in this location.

Author:              Assistant Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

(a)     That the request for a “Disabled Parking Only” zone on Colvin Avenue be denied.

(b)     That the kerb blister island be installed and “No Stopping” sign be relocated as per the attached plan TC1728 (2).

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the proposed installation of a “Disabled Parking Only” zone, kerb blister island and “No Stopping” zone relocation on Colvin Avenue, Carlton.

 

Background

 

2.      A request was received by a resident for the installation of a “Disabled Parking Only” zone on the northern side of Colvin Avenue, adjacent to 53 Jubilee Avenue.

 

3.      Following investigations by Council officers, it was noted that the resident did have off-street parking however it has been converted to an on-site business. As a result the residents no longer have access to off-street parking.

 

4.      Further on site investigations have determined that the current 20m “No Stopping” zone can be reduced with the installation of kerb blister islands. It is therefore proposed to install a kerb blister island on the northern side of Colvin Avenue, adjacent to the existing pedestrian crossing. It is then proposed to relocate the existing “No Stopping” sign, 10m eastward. This will create more on-street parking to be utilised by residents and neighbouring businesses.

 

Financial Implications

 

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

Recommendation

That “Do Not Queue Across Intersection” signs be installed at the intersection of Mabel Street and Hillcrest Avenue, Hurstville, as shown on the plan TC1733 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the proposed installation of “Do Not Queue Across Intersection” signs at the intersection of Mabel Street and Hillcrest Avenue, Hurstville.

 

Background

 

2.      A request was received by a local resident to consider the installation of linemarking to prevent vehicles queueing across the intersection of Mabel Street and Hillcrest Avenue.

 

3.      Following investigations by Council officers, it was observed that vehicles travelling westbound on Hillcrest Avenue would queue back from the signalised intersection with King Georges Road, blocking the intersection of Hillcrest Avenue and Mabel Street, for vehicles wishing to turn into and out of Mabel Street. It is therefore proposed to install “Do Not Queue Across Intersection” signage at this location, to notify drivers to leave a clear space to allow safer access to and from Mabel Street and improve traffic flow in this location.

Item:                   TAC093-18        Lily Street, Hurstville - Proposed "No Stopping" zone  

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That a 15m “No Stopping, 6.30am – 9.30m, Mon – Fri” zone be installed on the western side of Lily Street, south of Durham Street, and that the adjacent edge line be removed, as shown on plan TC1718 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed “No Stopping” zone in Lily Street, Hurstville.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has been monitoring the traffic flow along Lily Street near the intersection with Durham Street, Hurstville, specifically in the morning peak.

 

3.      In the morning, traffic queuing extends from the traffic signals at Durham Street back approximately 700m into Elizabeth Street, Allawah.

 

4.      It has been determined that this queuing is a result of vehicles turning right from Lily Street into Durham Street blocking the through traffic lane.  As the current “No Stopping” on the western side of Lily Street is 27m, when there are more than 4 cars turning right, traffic is halted and no vehicles can travel north due to the parked vehicles.

 

Proposal

 

5.      Upon investigation, it is proposed to install a 15m “No Stopping, 6.30am – 9.30am Mon – Fri” zone on the western side of Lily Street adjacent to number 53.  This would prevent vehicles parking in this location in the morning peak period and improve the traffic flow in the street.

 

6.      Residents in this vicinity have been notified by letter of the proposed installation of the “No Stopping” zone.  The closing date for submissions was 16 April 2018.  Council received one letter of objection.

 

7.      The objection was based on the loss of already limited street parking for residents and that parking further down Lily Street is dangerous due to the high traffic volumes.  Another option would be to extend the green time at the signals on this approach or make Roberts Lane two-way (currently one-way southbound).

 

8.      Council has investigated the objections raised and site inspections revealed that during the proposed restriction times of “6.30am – 9.30am, Mon – Fri” there was ample parking available along this section of Lily Street and outside of these times, residents can park unrestricted.  The installation of the 15m “No Stopping” zone (2 car spaces) in the morning peak times during the week is deemed warranted to assist in reducing traffic congestion along Lily Street.

 

9.      Council will also request the Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) to investigate the feasibility of extending the green time for the signals in the morning to also assist reducing congestion. Due to the narrow width of Roberts Lane, Council is not in support of making the lane two-way as it would encourage drivers to use it as a “rat-run” and reduce the safety for residents and other road users.

 

Financial Implications

 

10.    Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $200.
