Agenda Items

Item:                   TAC139-18        Sunshine Parade, Peakhurst Heights - Proposed 'Bus Zone' 

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That the existing Bus Stop on the southern side of Sunshine Parade, adjacent to No. 107 Lorraine Street, Peakhurst Heights be formalised to a 26m ‘Bus Zone’ as shown on plan TC1752 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Traffic Committee’s approval to formalise the existing Bus Stop in Sunshine Parade, Peakhurst Heights.

 

Background

 

2.      As part of the Disability Discrimination Act, Disability Standards for Accessible Public Transport requires that all Bus Stops in the Georges River Local Government Area be converted into ‘Bus Zones’ by 2022.

 

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 clearer enforcement.

 

Proposal

 

4.      Upon investigation by Council officers, it is proposed to formalise the existing Bus Stop on the southern side of Sunshine Parade, adjacent to No. 107 Lorraine Street, to a 26m “Bus Zone” to assist bus movements and improve safety for bus commuters.  Furthermore, it is proposed to construct a DDA compliant hardstand with Tactile Ground Surface Indicators.

 

Financial Implications

 

5.      Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facility Grant and Bus Stop Upgrade Program – approximately $1,500.

 

Community Engagement

 

6.        Residents in the vicinity have been notified by letter of the proposed ‘Bus Zone’. The closing date for submissions was 24 July 2018. No objections were received.

Item:                   TAC140-18        Lorraine Street, Peakhurst Heights - Proposed 'Bus Zone' Relocation 

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

(a)     That 16m of the existing ‘No Parking’ zone on the western side of Lorraine Street, Peakhurst Heights, adjacent to No. 108, be converted to a “Bus Zone”, as shown on plan TC1752 attached to the report.

(b)     That the existing ‘Bus Zone’ on the western side of Lorraine Street, adjacent to No. 106, be removed.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed ‘Bus Zone’ in Lorraine Street, Peakhurst Heights.

 

Background

 

2.      All ‘Bus Stops’ within the Peakhurst Heights area were audited as part of the Disability Discrimination Act, Disability Standards for Accessible Public Transport.

 

3.      As a result of this audit, two Bus Stops in Lorraine Street were identified for consolidation, at a more ideal location.

a.   Bus Stop 2210229, Lorraine St at Monterra Avenue, adjacent to No. 114; and

b.   Bus Stop 2210230, Lorraine St opposite Hurstville Golf Course, adjacent to No. 106.

 

Proposal

 

4.      It is proposed to consolidate the two above-mentioned Bus Stops to a new ‘Bus Zone’ adjacent to No. 108 Lorraine Street.  The removal of the two Bus Stops would increase on-street parking availability in Lorraine Street and still meet the recommended distances between Bus Stops.

 

5.      Therefore, it is proposed to convert 16m of the existing ‘No Parking’ zone adjacent to No. 108 Lorraine Street to a ‘Bus Zone’ to assist in bus movements in this location.

 

Financial Implications

 

6.      Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facility Grant and Bus Stop Upgrade Program – approximately $1,800.

 

Community Engagement

 

7.      Residents in the vicinity have been notified by letter of the proposed ‘Bus Zone’ relocation. The closing date for submission was 24 July 2018; the following feedback was received as part of the consultation process.

 

·    The ‘Bus Zone’ will hinder egress from the joint driveway at No.’s 110A & 110B as this part of Lorraine Street experiences heavy traffic from the golf course.

·    Encourage unsafe behaviour with motorists crossing the double centre line to overtake a stopped bus.

·    A bus stopped on the corner will restrict sight distance for motorists exiting Whitegates Avenue.

 

8.      A standard bus length stopped at this location would allow for safe egress from the property providing caution is taken as per normal road rules. Furthermore, the retained statutory ‘No Stopping’ zone in this location will provide adequate sight distance for motorists exiting Whitegates Avenue. On this basis, the proposed ‘Bus Zone’ in this location has been deemed acceptable.

Item:                   TAC143-18        Hurstville Grove - Request to Formalise Existing Bus Stops 

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

(a)     That the existing ‘Bus Stops’, in Hurstville Grove be formalised into ‘Bus Zones’ with statutory ‘No Stopping’ zones where applicable.

(b)     That DDA compliant hardstand slabs be installed at the proposed locations shown on plan TC 1772, sheets 1 – 7, attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Traffic Committee’s consideration to formalise the existing Bus Stops in Hurstville Grove.

 

Background

 

2.      Council received representation from Punchbowl Bus Company requesting Council to formalise the existing Bus Stops located in Lansdowne Street and Waitara Parade, Hurstville Grove.

 

3.      Formalising the stops to ‘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.

 

Proposal

 

4.      Upon investigation by Council officers, it is proposed to formalise the existing Bus Stops by installing ‘Bus Zones’ in Lansdowne Street and Waitara Parade, Hurstville Grove, which would assist the bus movements and improve safety for the bus stop in these locations.

 

5.      Some of these ‘Bus Zones’ will require the construction of a DDA complaint hardstand slab.

 

6.      Furthermore, the proposal would meet Councils obligation to ensure that discrimination under the Disability Discrimination Act, is removed as far as possible.

 

Financial Implications

 

7.      Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facility Grant and Bus Stop Upgrade Program – approximately $5,600.

 

Community Engagement

 

8.        Affected residents in the proposed locations have been notified by letter of the proposed ‘Bus Zones’. The closing date for submission was 24 July 2018, the following feedback was received as part of the consultation process:

a.   In reference to Sheet No.1: Resident objects to the proposal noting that an elderly resident at No. 120 requires on-street parking for visitors regarding their care. Furthermore, consideration for the removal of this ‘Bus Stop’ should be considered, highlighting the recommended spacing between Bus Stops in this location.

b.   In reference to Sheet No.2: The Local Business owner objected to the “No Stopping” zone on the Seymour Street frontage. Council has advised that this forms the statutory 10m “No Stopping” zone at an un-signalised intersection and has been deemed acceptable.

 

c.   In reference to Sheet No.3: Two residents provided feedback on the proposal.

i. One resident was in favour of the proposal, on the basis that the un-restricted on-street parking space adjacent No.58 be signposted or delineated to indicate that it is for that property. Council has advised that on-street parking is made available to all road users.

ii.       One resident objected to the proposal noting that on-street parking in this area is in high demand, and should be made available to residents directly adjacent their property. As Council is formalising around existing rules for a ‘Bus Stop’ the proposal in this location has been deemed acceptable.

Item:                   TAC144-18        Montgomery Street, Kogarah - Proposed "Bus Zone" 

Author:              Coordinator Traffic & Transport

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That the existing 30m “1P, 8.30am-6pm Mon-Fri, 8.30am-12.30pm Sat” zone on the eastern side of Montgomery Street, adjacent to St George Bank, be converted to a “1P, 9.30am-3pm Mon-Fri, 8.30am-12.30pm Sat” zone with supplementary “Bus Zone, 8am-9.30am, 3pm-5pm Mon-Fri”, as shown on plan TC1775 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed “Bus Zone” in Montgomery Street, Kogarah.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received a request to investigate the feasibility of installing a “Bus Zone” in Montgomery Street, Kogarah to provide an area where the Westpac Bus Service could park to pick up and drop off their staff in close proximity to the building entrance during the morning and afternoon periods.

 

3.        The Westpac bus has two (2) services that drop of staff in the morning between 8am – 9.30am and pick up in the afternoon between 3pm and 5pm throughout the week.  Currently the bus has been observed to park in the “Bus Zones” near Kogarah Train Station resulting in disruptions to the regular bus services in the Kogarah CBD.

 

4.        As the St George Auditorium and Community Centre, located within the St George Bank building, has regular events, people attending these also require a bus to park in close proximity to the entrance.

 

Proposal

 

5.        Upon investigation of this request, Council is proposing to convert the existing 30m “1P, 8.30am-6pm Mon-Fri, 8.30am-12.30pm Sat” zone on the eastern side of Montgomery Street, adjacent to St George Bank, to a “1P, 9.30am-3pm Mon-Fri, 8.30am-12.30pm Sat” zone with supplementary “Bus Zone, 8am-9.30am, 3pm-5pm Mon-Fri”.

 

Financial Implications

 

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

 

Community Engagement

7.        Community engagement was conducted including: Businesses in this vicinity have been notified by letter of the proposed installation of the “Bus Zone” and changes to the “1P” zone.  The closing date for submissions was 20 July 2018.  Council received one phone call requesting further information and commented on the loss of parking.  It was noted that the “Bus Zone” will not operate between 9.30am and 3pm during the week and as a result will not have a significant impact on customer parking.

Item:                   TAC145-18        Norman Street, Allawah - Proposed Line Marking 

Author:              Coordinator Traffic & Transport

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

(a)     That a 212m edge line with red raised reflective pavement markers be installed 2.6m from the face of the northern kerb of Norman Street, between Noble Street and Balfour Street.

(b)     That a 146m edge line with red raised reflective pavement markers be installed 2.6m from the face of the southern kerb of Norman Street, between Noble Street and Augusta Street.

(c)     That a 156m dividing barrier line with yellow raised reflective pavement markers be installed 3.1m from the edge line in Norman Street, between Noble Street and Augusta Street, as shown on plan TC1776 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the proposed line marking in Norman Street, Allawah.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received a request from a local resident to investigate the traffic issues in Norman Street near Illawarra Street, Allawah.

 

3.      At the December 2017 meeting of the Traffic Advisory Committee, the members approved a recommendation to extend the existing statutory 10m “No Stopping” zone on the south-eastern side of Norman Street an additional 5 metres to further the sight distance along Norman Street for drivers turning out of Illawarra Street.  This 5 metre extension was implemented in early February 2018.

 

4.      The resident has advised that drivers still have difficulty turning out of Illawarra Street into Norman Street to head towards Swanns Lane.

 

Comments

 

5.      The width of Norman Street has been measured at 11.4 metres between kerbs and there is no existing line marking along this section of road.

 

6.      The most recent traffic counter installed in this section of Norman Street indicated that the daily traffic volume was measured at 4,831 vehicles and the 85th percentile speed was calculated at 54km/h.

 

Proposal

 

7.      Council is proposing to paint an edge line on the northern and southern side of Norman Street and also a dividing barrier line to improve the travel paths of vehicles.  This is a cost effective method and would also assist in lowering vehicle speed in Norman Street and would not result in the loss of any parking spaces.

8.      The submitted design has a parking lane width of 2.6m and complies with Section 2.2.2 of “Australian Standards 2890.5 – 1993 On – Street Parking” that requires an edge line to be at least 2.1m from the kerb line.  The design also complies with the Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) “Road Design Guide” that a minimum travel lane width of 3m be provided.

 

Financial Implications

 

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

Item:                   TAC146-18        Gladstone Street, Kogarah - Proposed Raised Pedestrian Crossing and Sign Changes 

Author:              Coordinator Traffic & Transport

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

(a)     That a raised pedestrian crossing with associated signage, be installed in Gladstone Street, adjacent to Kogarah High School, in accordance with the RMS Technical Directions, as shown on detailed plan U692 attached to the report.

(b)     That a “No Stopping” zone be installed on the northern side of Gladstone Street, adjacent to the park and proposed crossing.

(c)     That the existing “Bus Zone, 8.30am-3.30pm School Days” adjacent to the school be converted to a “No Stopping” zone.

(d)     That the existing “No Parking, 8am-9.30am, 2.30pm-4pm School Days” zone adjacent to the school to be converted to “No Parking, 7am-9.30am, 2.30pm-4pm School Days, Buses Excepted” with supplementary “Bus Zone, 11.30am-12.30pm, 2pm-2.30pm Wed”, as shown on plan TC1783 attached to the report.

(e)     That the Principal of Kogarah High School be advised of Council’s decision.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of a raised pedestrian crossing and sign changes in Gladstone Street, Kogarah.

 

Background

 

2.      A site meeting with Council staff, Councillor Nick Katris, Chris Minns MP, Member for Kogarah and the Principal of Kogarah High School was conducted in March 2018 to discuss the feasibility of a pedestrian crossing in Gladstone Street.

 

3.      The Principal advised that the Department of Education owns the field on the northern side of Gladstone Street and there is currently no safe location to cross the road from the school gates to the field that could be used for recess and lunch breaks.

 

4.      As a result of this request, the matter was discussed at the April meeting of the Traffic Advisory Committee where the RMS advised that they require a pedestrian and vehicle count to be conducted.  Essentially only a vehicle count could be conducted as Council and the RMS agreed that the pedestrian count would easily meet the warrant should the school have a crossing to allow the students to use the field during their breaks.

 

Investigation

 

5.      The 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.

6.      Council’s Traffic Officer conducted a pedestrian and vehicle count in Gladstone Street, between Victor Street and Victoria Street, adjacent to the school on Thursday 10 May 2018. The results of the count is detailed in the table below:

TIME

PEDESTRIANS (P)

VEHICLES (V)

10.20am – 11.20am

N/A

182

12.45pm – 1.45pm

N/A

184

 

 

 

 

 

 

7.      The results of the vehicle count were sent to the RMS who advised that due to the high number of students potentially crossing and the reduced warrant for vehicles almost being met, from a safety perspective there is no issues with a raised crossing being installed adjacent to the school.

 

Proposal

 

8.      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.

 

9.      The raised crossing has been designed north of the school driveway, between Victor Street and Victoria Street.  As a result, the crossing would cause the loss of three (3) car spaces on the northern side of Gladstone Street, due to the required “No Stopping” zone. The existing “Bus Zone, 8.30am-3.30pm School Days” adjacent to the school would also be required to be converted to a “No Stopping” zone.

 

10.    Two (2) additional 45 degree angle unrestricted parking spaces are proposed on the southern side of Gladstone Street, north of the proposed crossing to offset the loss of car parking spaces in the street.

 

11.    The Principal has advised that the school does not have a daily bus service and the only times that a “Bus Zone” would need to operate would be for school sport and excursions.  The buses on Wednesday for school sport arrive at 12pm and depart by 12.30pm.  They return back to the school from 2:15pm.  Buses for excursions pickup between 7am and 9am.  School commences at 8:35am and finishes at 2:45pm, except on Wednesdays when it finishes at 2.35pm.

 

12.    Council is therefore proposing that the existing “No Parking, 8am-9.30am, 2.30pm-4pm School Days” zone adjacent to the school to be converted to “No Parking, 7am-9.30am, 2.30pm-4pm School Days, Buses Excepted” with supplementary “Bus Zone, 11.30am-12.30pm, 2pm-2.30pm Wed”.  This would provide an area for buses to legally park for excursions in the morning from 7am and in the afternoon and also prevent cars parking on Wednesdays when the bus is required for sport.

 

13.    There is an existing driveway crossing and gate for Ambulance access to the field located adjacent to the proposed crossing.  This will be required to be removed. There are numerous existing driveways in Victor Street that provide similar vehicular access to the field. Simple modifications to the existing fence to create a gate will be required.

 

 

Financial Implications

 

14.    Additional non-budgeted funds of approximately $80,000 from Revenue Works Operating Budget 2018/19.

 

Community Engagement

 

15.     Community engagement was conducted including consulting with the school Principal on the design and proposed signage changes and no objections were received.

Author:              Coordinator Traffic & Transport

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

To be considered by the Committee.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s further consideration for a proposed roundabout at the intersection of Pallamana Parade, Tallawalla Street and Kirrang Street, Beverly Hills.

 

Background

 

2.      A report for a proposed roundabout at intersection of Pallamana Parade, Tallawalla Street and Kirrang Street was presented at the 5 June 2018 meeting of the Traffic Advisory Committee where the members approved the following recommendation:

 

“That the request for a roundabout to be constructed at the intersection of Pallamana Parade, Tallawalla Street and Kirrang Street, Beverly Hills be denied.”

 

3.      At the 26 June 2018 Regular Council Meeting, the Council resolved to refer the roundabout recommendation back to the August 2018 Traffic Committee for further consideration.

 

Initial Assessment

 

4.      Council received a request to consider the installation of a roundabout at the intersection of Pallamana Parade, Tallawalla Street and Kirrang Street, Beverly Hills to improve vehicle turning movements in that location.

 

5.      Upon investigation of this request, Council’s Engineers prepared a concept design for a roundabout in accordance with the requirements of the Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) Technical Directions and relevant Australian Standards. This plan is attached to the report.

 

6.      The construction of a roundabout would require the relocation of the existing concrete islands at the intersection and modifications to the existing “No Stopping” signs.

 

7.      As a result of the proposed roundabout there would be a loss of an additional 5 parking spaces located in Pallamana Parade and Tallawalla Street.  One street tree in Pallamana Parade would also be required to be removed to allow for a pram ramp to be constructed.

 

8.      Council’s Traffic Engineers have reviewed the Roads and Maritime Service’s (RMS) crash database for a 5 year period between July 2012 and June 2017. There was one crash recorded at the subject intersection within this period in June 2015.

 

 

Consultation

 

9.      A consultation letter and plan outlining the proposal for the roundabout was sent to the nearby residents on Thursday 17 May 2018.  Submissions on the proposal were requested to be received by Thursday 24 May 2018.

 

10.    Council door knocked the adjacent residents and explained the proposal and how they would be affected.  The feedback received by 2 residents affected by the proposed roundabout was negative and they were not in favour of the roundabout being constructed due to the additional loss of street parking associated with the project.

 

11.    Council also received a written letter of objection from a resident and this was also based on the additional loss of 5 parking spaces on the street, comments included; there has already been a substantial amount of money spent on the new refuge islands and the removal of these for a new roundabout is a waste of rate payers money; and that a roundabout would not address issues of reckless driver behaviour as these drivers may lose control into adjacent properties.

 

Financial Implications

 

12.    No budget impact for this report.

Item:                   TAC148-18        Tallawalla Street and Pallamana Parade, Beverly Hills - request to shorten "No Stopping" restiction  

Author:              Senior Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

(a)     To de determined by Committee

 

Executive Summary

1.   This report has been brought back to the attention to the Traffic Committee to seek the Committee’s consideration to shorten the No Stopping restriction on Tallawalla Street and replace the “No Stopping” sign and stem in Pallamana Parade with solid yellow edge line marking along the side of Pallamana Parade, south of Tallawalla Street, Beverly Hills.

 

Background

 

2.   Council recently installed pedestrian refuges in Pallamana Parade near its intersection with Tallawalla Street, Beverly Hills.

3.   To conform to latest RMS Technical Directions for sight distance at a pedestrian refuge, “No Stopping” restriction was installed in Pallamana Parade, along the side frontage of 23 Tallawalla Street, Beverly Hills. 

 

4.   The physical location of the sign and post ended up being directly outside the front door of the above mentioned property. 

 

5.   Accordingly Council received representation that the physical location of the “No Stopping” sign and post are distressing the elderly resident residing at 23 Tallawalla Street as her advanced dementia leads her to believe that the sign and stem is a person outside her front door.

 

6.   The resident’s son has requested, for compassionate reasons, that the “No Stopping” be shortened so that the stem and the sign be moved away from the direct sight line of his mother as she exits the front door.

 

7.   The location of the existing “No Stopping” restriction conforms to RMS requirement to improve sight distance of motorists to pedestrians utilising the refuge island in Pallamana Parade.

 

8.   It is recommended that the physical stem and sign that indicate the “No Stopping” zone be instead removed and a solid yellow edge line marking be painted along the side of the road thereby alerting motorists to the “No Stopping” restriction without compromising the safety of pedestrians at the subject location by shortening the zone.

 

9.   Road Rule 169 of the Road Rules 2014 stipulates that “A driver must not stop at the side of a road marked with a continuous yellow edge line”.

 

10. Furthermore, directly outside the same property at 23 Tallawalla Street, there is 17m double centreline along its frontage in Tallawalla Street which prevents vehicles from parking along the frontage of the property.  

 

11. Accordingly the resident’s son once more has requested that the double centre lines be shortened to allow for one car parking space to be available outside the property on Tallawalla Street.

 

12. The double centre line has been installed at that location to delineate the street as motorists approach the intersection of Pallamana and Tallawalla Street, Beverly hills

 

13. Shortening the 17m double centre lines by 7 metres should not have an adverse effect to the road safety at the intersection.  

 

 

 

Financial Implications

 

1.      Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $1000

 

 

Community Engagement

 

2.        Affected resident has been notified of the changes.

Author:              Coordinator Traffic & Transport

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That the existing “No Stopping” zone on the northern side of Roberts Avenue, west of Depot Road, be extended 33m as shown on plan TC1781 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed “No Stopping” extension in Roberts Avenue, Mortdale.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received a request to investigate the existing “No Stopping” restrictions on the northern side of Roberts Avenue, near Depot Road.

 

3.      Heavy vehicles have been observed to be parking at the start of the “No Stopping” restrictions near the Council Depot driveway.  As a result, the sight distance and turning movements are being impeded, creating a safety issue.  Measurements taken on-site also indicate that heavy vehicles parked in this location are within 3m of the dividing barrier line and therefore in breach of the NSW Road Rules.

 

Proposal

 

4.      It is proposed to extend the existing “No Stopping” zone on the northern side of Roberts Avenue, 33m towards the east, to increase the distance that vehicles can legally park from the Council Depot driveway and also to a location where the road is wider that would allow vehicles to park legally.

 

5.      There would still be 36m of unrestricted parking available on the northern side of Roberts Avenue for drives to utilise after the proposed changes have been implemented.

 

Financial Implications

 

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

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

(a)     That “No Parking” zones be installed on Roberts Lane, Hurstville, as shown on plan TC1692 attached to the report.

(b)     That the existing “Disabled Parking Only” zone on Roberts Lane at the rear of 51 Lily Street, be removed.

(c)     That the residents in the vicinity be advised of Councils decision.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the installation of “No Parking” zones and the removal of the existing “Disabled Parking Only” zone on Roberts Lane, Hurstville.

 

Background

 

2.      In September 2017, Council proposed the installation of a “No Parking” zone along Roberts Lane, up to the rear of 45 Lily Street, Hurstville; this was approved and installed in late 2017.

 

3.      Following the installation of the “No Parking” zone, requests were received by Council to consider the extension of the “No Parking” zone along the full length of Roberts Lane. Council consulted with residents in February 2018 for the installation of “No Parking” which included the removal on a “Disabled Parking Only” zone on Roberts Lane. Based on feedback received and non-unanimous support, it was determined that no further changes would take place.

 

4.      Since then Council has received further representations from affected residents, noting the increasing difficulties faced when exiting and entering their properties, along with commuters and visitors blocking access to properties. Council has therefore been requested to reinvestigate the parking conditions along Roberts Lane.

 

Comments

 

5.      Upon investigation of the request by Council officers it has been found that the existing “Disabled Parking Only” zone is not being used for the purpose it was originally installed and is generally left vacant, occasionally being used by commuters at Allawah Train Station.

 

6.      It is therefore being proposed to remove the existing “Disabled Parking Only” zone. It is also proposed to install a series of “No Parking” zones over the 80m stretch of Roberts Lane. This will prevent long term parking of vehicles in specific locations, allowing for safe entry and exit to properties in this location. On-street parking will be retained on Roberts Lane which can be safely utilised by residents and visitors without causing a hazard to residents in the vicinity.

 

Financial Implications

 

7.      Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facilities Grant – Approximately $350.

 

Community Engagement

 

8.      The residents in this vicinity have been notified of the proposed installation of an 80m “No Parking” zone, which included the reduction of the existing “No Stopping” zone by 30m. Based on the feedback received by Council, modifications have been made to the proposal to retain on-street parking in locations that will not cause a negative impact to residents and road users.

Recommendation

That the existing “No Parking, 6am-3pm, Wednesday” zone at the cul-de-sac on Wadsley Crescent, Connells Point, be converted to a “No Parking” zone, as shown on the plan TC1779 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the installation of a “No Parking” zone, at the cul-de-sac end of Wadsley Cresent, Connells Point.

 

Background

 

2.      Council received a request from a resident and subsequent request from Councillor Kathryn Landsberry to investigate the parking conditions in the cul-de-sac of Wadsley Crescent. The request was to have the existing “No Parking, 6am-3pm, Wednesday” zone converted to a “No Parking” zone.

 

3.      The existing “No Parking, 6am-3pm, Wednesday” zone is 30m in length and starts at the driveway No. 3 Wadsley Crescent to the power pole adjacent to No. 7 Wadsley Crescent.

 

Comments

 

4.      Upon investigations of this request, it found that the within the existing “No Parking, 6am-3pm, Wednesday” zone are four domestic driveways. It is also noted that No. 6 Wadsley Crescent has been under construction for just over a year and a number of trades vehicles have been parking in this location restricting access to properties. It is therefore proposed to convert the existing “No Parking, 6am-3pm, Wednesday” zone to a “No Parking” zone to prevent vehicles parking in this location.

 

5.      Due to the location of the driveways, there is insufficient space to allow a vehicle to park legally in the cul-de-sac.

 

Financial Implications

 

6.      Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facilities Grant – Approximately $100.

 

Community Engagement

 

7.        The residents in this vicinity have been notified of the proposed changes to the “No Parking” zone in the cul-de-sac of Wadsley Crescent. Two residents were in support of the proposal.

 

8.        One resident was opposed to the proposal stating that the additional signage isn’t necessary and creates visual pollution. As the proposal is the replacement of existing signage and due to the location of driveways, the proposal is formalising a restriction under the Roads Act and is justified in this location.

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That an 80m “No Parking” zone be installed on the northern side of the laneway adjacent to Club Grandviews, Peakhurst, as shown on the plan TC1788 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the installation of a “No Parking” zone, along the laneway adjacent to Club Grandviews, Peakhurst.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received a request from Councillor Colleen Symington on behalf of Club Grandviews to investigate the parking conditions in the laneway between Club Grandviews and Our Lady of Fatima Church, Peakhurst.

 

3.      Council approved the installation of a “No Parking” zone on the southern side of the laneway adjacent to Club Grandviews, Peakhurst in July 2017. Since this time the road surface of the laneway has been replaced and a footpath has been installed on the southern side of the laneway. The request was for the existing “No Parking” zone to be relocated to the northern side of the laneway.

 

Comments

 

4.      Upon investigation by Council officers it was found that the width of the laneway varies from 4.5m to 5.6m wide. Vehicles often park on the northern side of laneway from Thursday through to Sunday to attend sports training and games in Gannons Park. These vehicles make it difficult for the Club Grandviews Courtesy Bus to access the site, as well as the Cleanaway Vehicle which enters and exits through the laneway. It is therefore proposed to install an 80m “No Parking” zone on the northern side of the laneway. This will improve access to the park and Club Grandviews and maintain two-way access throughout the laneway, improving safety and accessibility.

 

Financial Implications

 

5.      Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facilities Grant – Approximately $500

 

Community Engagement

 

6.      Club Grandviews was notified of the proposed installation of the “No Parking” zone, no objection was received.

Recommendation

That the six (6) unrestricted angle parking spaces on the southern side of Jubilee Avenue, adjacent to Beverley Park Golf Club, be signposted as “P, Beverley Park Golf Club Authorised Staff Only”, as shown on plan TC1780 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

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

 

Background

 

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

 

3.      Currently, the angle parking spaces in Jubilee Avenue are unrestricted parking and as a result staff members of Beverley Park Golf Club have difficulty in finding parking in close proximity to the Club.

 

Proposal

 

4.      It is proposed to convert six (6) of the unrestricted parking spaces in this area to “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.

 

7.      Beverley Park Golf Club does not currently have on-site parking available for staff or customers to utilise and they are required to use the street parking.

 

Financial Implications

 

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

4.      As a result of the new Clearway, Council has been advised that residents who live on King Georges Road have visitors on weekends and they are unable to park on the street.  As parking on Taunton Street is limited, the request was received to install a “Disabled Parking” zone so that people with an MPS Permit can park in close proximity to the residential properties on King Georges Road.

 

Proposal

 

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

 

Financial Implications

 

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

 

Community Engagement

 

7.      Community engagement was conducted including: Residents in this vicinity and the adjacent service station have been notified by letter of the proposed installation of the “Disabled Parking” zone.  The closing date for submissions was 20 July 2018 and no objections were received.

Item:                   TAC158-18        Wonoona Parade East, Oatley - Proposed Angle Parking Changes 

Author:              Coordinator Traffic & Transport

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That the existing parking spaces in Wonoona Parade East, between Letitia Street and Rosa Street, be formalised with 90 degree angle parking in accordance with the requirements of “Australian Standards 2890.5:1993 – On Street Car Parking”, as shown on plan TC1785 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed parking changes in Wonoona Parade East, Oatley.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received a request to formalise the existing car parking area in Wonoona Parade East, between Letitia Street and Rosa Street, Oatley.

 

3.      Currently there are 11 small trees with concrete islands located in the middle of the road and vehicles are required to park between them in an informal manner.

 

Proposal

 

4.      A concept plan has been designed for 90 degree angle parking in accordance with the requirements of “Australian Standards 2890.5:1993 – On Street Car Parking”.  The proposed parking spaces have a width of 2.4 and a length of 5.4m to be compliant with the standards.

 

5.      The design includes the removal of the existing 11 small trees, however these would be offset by the proposed construction of 2 new landscaped islands that would be planted with trees that can grow up to 8m in height and provide a streetscape improvement.

 

6.      As a result of the 90 degree angle parking spaces and landscaped islands, there would be an expected increase of five (5) car spaces in this section of Wonoona Parade East.

 

7.      The section of Wonoona Parade East, between Letitia Street and Oatley Avenue, was also assessed for parking formalisation, however there are significant trees in this area and their removal for parking is not supported at this stage.

 

Financial Implications

 

8.      Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $20,000.

 

 

 

 

Community Engagement

 

9.      Community engagement was conducted including: The unit owners in this vicinity have been notified by letter of the proposed formalisation of the parking spaces.  The closing date for submissions was 27 July 2018 and no objections were received.

Item:                   TAC159-18        Edgbaston Road, Beverly Hills - Proposed relocation of "Mail Zone" 

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

(a)     That the existing “Mail Zone” at the intersection of Edgbaston Road and Mercury Street be relocated to the intersection of Edgbaston Road and Dennis Place, Beverly Hills, as shown on the plan TC1786 attached to the report.

(b)     That Australia Post be notified of Council’s decision.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the relocation of the existing “Mail Zone” at the intersection of Edgbaston Road and Mercury Street, Beverly Hills.

 

Background

 

2.      A request has been received from a resident of Edgbaston Road to investigate the existing “Mail Zone” at the intersection of Edgbaston Road and Mercury Street, Beverly Hills. The request is to have the “Mail Zone” relocated to a safer location.

 

3.      A roundabout was installed at the intersection of Edgbaston Road and Mercury Street as part of a NSW Blackspot funded project in 2016. Currently there is an existing “Mail Zone” sign and Australia Post Mail Box on the southern side of Edgbaston Road, 20m from the intersection.

 

Comments

 

4.      Upon investigation of the request by Council officers it was found that when Australia Post vehicles were stopped in the “Mail Zone” it created a hazard for passing vehicles due to the location of the pedestrian refuge and the proximity of the intersection. The road is also part of a bus route. It is therefore proposed to relocate the “Mail Zone” adjacent to Edgbaston Road Reserve, near to Dennis Place, Beverly Hills.

 

Financial Implications

 

5.      Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facilities Grant – Approximately $250

 

Community Engagement

 

6.      Australia Post has been notified of the proposed changes to the existing “Mail Zone”, no objection was received. Council are to notify Australia Post of the proposed new location so that the mail box can be relocated.

Recommendation

a)   THAT the “Construction Traffic Management Plan” for 5-7 Littleton Street, Riverwood submitted by Orbital Traffic Management, be approved.

 

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the “Construction Traffic Management Plan” for the construction of No.’s 5-7 Littleton Street, Riverwood.

 

Background

 

2.      Club Rivers has engaged Boden Projects to construct a car park and commercial development on the site of their existing car park at No,’s 5-7 Littleton Street, Riverwood.

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That the “Construction Traffic Management Plan” for the St George Specialist Centre at the corner of Princes Highway and South Street, Kogarah, submitted by SBMG Planning be approved.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the “Construction Traffic Management Plan” for the construction of the St George Specialist Centre at the corner of Princes Highway and South Street, Kogarah.

 

Background

 

2.      Buildcorp has been engaged to construct the new St George Specialist Centre, which involves the demolition of the existing structures and construction of a new multi-level building. The project also includes scope for a sky bridge to connect the existing St George Private Hospital to the new development.

 

3.      The demolition stage of the project is estimated to take approximately one month, and will involve up to 20 truck movements on peak days. The construction phase is estimated to take approximately six months with the highest vehicle movements anticipated on concrete pour days with 15-20 vehicle movements per pour.

 

4.      The following approach and departure routes are proposed during the demolition phase, with the site being accessed via the existing laybacks on South Street;

·    Approach Route 1 – Traveling northbound along the Princes Highway, turn left onto Kensington Street, turn left onto Montgomery Street, turn left onto South Street and then turn left onto the site in a forward-facing direction.

·    Approach Route 2 – Traveling southbound along the Princes Highway, continue onto Rock Point Road, turn right onto Gray Street, turn right onto Kensington Street, turn right onto Belgrave Street, continue left onto South Street and then turn left onto the site in a forward-facing direction.

·    Departure Route – Exit the site and turn right onto South Street and then turn onto the Princes Highway.

 

5.        The following approach and departure routes are proposed during the construction phase, with the site being access through the parking area at the rear of the site;

·    Site Access (Rear parking area)

·    Approach Route 1 – Traveling northbound along the Princes Highway, turn left onto Kensington Street, turn left onto Montgomery Street, turn left onto Hogben Street and then turn into the car park in a forward-facing direction.

·    Approach Route 2 – Traveling southbound along the Princes Highway, continue onto Rocky Point Road, turn right onto Gray Street, turn right onto Kensington Street, turn right onto Montgomery Street, turn left onto Hogben Street and then turn into the car park in a forward-facing direction.

·    Departure Route 1 – In a forward-facing direction exit the car park onto Hogben Street, turn right onto Montgomery Street, turn right onto Kensington Street and then turn left onto the Princes Highway.

·    Departure Route 1 – In a forward-facing direction exit the car park onto Hogben Street, turn right onto Montgomery Street, turn left onto Kensington Street, turn left onto Gray Street and then turn onto the Princes Highway.

·    South Street (Contingency)

·    Approach Route – Traveling southbound along the Princes Highway, continue onto Rocky Point Road, turn right onto Gray Street, turn right onto Kensington Street, turn right onto Belgrave Street, continue left onto South Street and then enter the Works Zone in a forward-facing direction.

·    Departure Route – In a forward-facing direction exit the Works Zone

 

6.      During the construction phase there is proposed B-Class hoarding along South Street and Princes Highway frontages to allow for adequate pedestrian protection. A traffic controller will be located at the gate to manage pedestrian activity when vehicles are entering and exiting the site.

 

7.      During the construction phase there is a proposal for a Works Zone on South Street (subject to Council approval). Operating hours are proposed between 9am & 4pm Monday to Friday and 8am to 4pm Saturday, to reduce impact on existing traffic flows during the AM and PM peak periods as part of a contingency plan.

 

8.      During the construction phase some material cannot be lifted from the rear parking area due to access restrictions and/or the install location. In these instances, the vehicle will need to stand within South Street and occupy the eastbound traffic lanes. The standing location must be set out from the kerb due to the overhead power lines, therefore impacting both traffic lanes.

 

9.      The builder anticipates this proposal to be only required in single shift increments on approx. 15 instances throughout the project. Although the use of South Street does have some impact to traffic movements, it also allows the traffic lanes to be maintained as per existing conditions at all other times.

 

Financial Implications

 

10.    No budget impact for this report.

Item:                   TAC165-18        Ethel Lane, Carlton - Proposed One-Way Consultation Results 

Author:              Coordinator Traffic & Transport

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 the results of the consultation for the conversion of Ethel lane, Carlton to one-way westbound.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received correspondence from a local resident raising road safety concerns in Ethel Lane, between Lily Street and Botany Street.

 

3.      As a result of this request, a report was presented to the April 2018 meeting of the Traffic Advisory Committee where the members approved the following recommendations:

 

(a)       That the request for Ethel Lane, Carlton, between Botany Street and Lily Street, to be converted to one-way westbound be approved in principal.

(b)       That the residents and businesses in this vicinity be consulted on the proposal.

(c)       That the results of the consultation be submitted to a future Traffic Committee meeting for consideration.”

 

4.      On 20 June 2018, Council’s Traffic Engineer hand delivered 177 consultation letters and the associated plan to residents and businesses in close proximity to Ethel Lane.  This area of distribution is shown on the plan attached to the report.  Residents and businesses were provided a survey form to provide feedback on their preferred option. If owners were satisfied with the current two-way arrangement, they were to select the “No Change” Option 1 box. Alternatively if they preferred the lane to be made one-way westbound, they selected Option 2.   Owners were allowed 4 weeks to respond with the ‘reply paid’ envelope provided.  The results of the consultation are as follows:

 

·        Total delivered = 177

Total returned = 55 (31% of total)

 

Option 1 – No Change (Retain two-way)

Option 2 - (Convert to one-way)

37 (67% of total returned)

18 (33% of total returned)

 

5.      As can be seen from the results table above, of the surveys returned to Council, 67% of the owners in this area supported “No Change” to the current two-way situation in Ethel Lane.  This outcome is representative of the views of the affected residents and businesses.

 

 

Financial Implications

 

6.      No budget impact for this report.
