Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration to formalise the existing Bus Stops in Pallamana Parade, Beverly Hills.

 

Background

 

2.      Council received representation from Punchbowl Bus Company requesting the formalisation of the existing Bus Stops located in Pallamana Parade, Beverly Hills.

 

3.      Formalising the stops to ‘Bus Zones’ will enable buses to pull in and out of the bus stop without being hindered by parked cars and allow for easier enforcement.

 

4.      Route S14 that operates at these stops is a special route that has limited services between 9am to 3pm, Monday to Friday.

 

Proposal

 

5.      Upon investigation by Council officers, it is proposed to formalise the existing Bus Stops by installing ‘Bus Zones, 9am – 3pm, Mon - Fri’ on both sides of Pallamana Parade, Beverly Hills, which would assist the bus movements and improve safety for the bus stop in these locations.

 

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 – approximately $400.

 

Community Engagement

 

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

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That a 15m “Bus Zone, Mon – Sat” with accompanying “No Stopping” zone be installed on the western side of Woronora Parade corner of Griffiths Street, Oatley, as shown on plan TC1798 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the proposed ‘Bus Zone’ in Woronora Parade, Oatley.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received a request to investigate the existing Bus Stop on the western side of Woronora Parade, corner Griffiths Street, Oatley.

4.      Route 955 that operates at this stop has services from Monday to Saturday.

 

Proposal

 

5.      As a result, it is proposed to install a 15m “Bus Zone, Mon - Sat” with an accompanying statutory 10m “No Stopping” zone at the intersection, to provide visual indication for the bus stop and provide a safer situation for commuters.

 

6.      Furthermore, 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.

 

Financial Implications

 

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

 

Community Engagement

 

8.        Residents in the vicinity of the proposed installation of the ‘Bus Zone’ were notified in writing. The closing date for submissions was 24 August 2018. One resident objected to the loss of parking adjacent to No.’s 18 – 20 noting that resident parking is in constant competition with church patrons. The resident proposed that the ‘Bus Zone’ be located north of Griffiths St, and requested this be considered.

Item:                   TAC170-18        Boatwright Avenue, Lugarno - Proposed Dividing Centreline 

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That a 33m Dividing  Centreline (BB) and associated “No Stopping” zone be installed on Boatwright Avenue, Peakhurst, adjacent to the entrance to Gannons Park as per the plan TC1797 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the installation of a Dividing Centreline and associated “No Stopping” zone on Boatwright Avenue, Peakhurst.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received a request from a resident of Boatwright Avenue to investigate the road conditions, in particular highlighting driver behaviour when driving to and from the Boatwright Avenue entrance to Gannons Park, Peakhurst.

 

3.      Currently there is an existing “No Stopping” zone on the western side of Boatwright Avenue at the bend.

 

4.      Upon investigation of this request by Council officers, it was found that vehicles driving into Gannons Park have a tendency to travel along the middle of the road carriageway. It is therefore proposed to install a Dividing Centreline to delineate the road carriageway and improve safety in this location. Due to the width of the roadway in this location vehicles will be unable to park in the vicinity of the Dividing Centreline.

 

Financial Implications

 

5.      Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facility Grant – Approximately $1,000.

 

Community Engagement

 

6.      The residents in the vicinity have been notified of the proposed BB Centreline and associated “No Stopping” zone. No objections were received.

Item:                   TAC174-18        The Strand, Penshurst - Proposed island removal 

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That the existing concrete island on the northern side of The Strand, Penshurst, be removed, as per the plan TC1811 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      The report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the removal of the concrete island on the northern side of The Strand, Penshurst.

 

Background

 

2.      A request was received by Council from a local resident, requesting consideration of the traffic flow on The Strand, in particular highlighting the accessibility of the pick-up and drop-off area during peak times.

 

3.      Currently there is a 27m “No Parking, 6am-10am, 3pm-7pm, Mon-Fri” zone in conjunction with a “1P, 10am-3pm, Mon-Fri, 8.30am-12.30pm, Sat” zone on the northern side of The Strand. However only 21m of this space is currently accessible to vehicles due to the location of the existing concrete island.

 

4.      Following inspections by Council officers, it was noticed that vehicles did not fully occupy the available space, due to the location of the existing concrete island which made it difficult for vehicles to turn in and out of the pick-up and drop-off zone quickly. It is therefore proposed to remove the existing concrete island in this location, which will improve accessibility and increase the capacity of the existing pick-up and drop-off zone.

 

Financial Implications

 

5.      Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facility Grant – Approximately $2,500.

Item:                   TAC175-18        Bryant Street, Narwee - Proposed changes to pedestrian crossing 

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That the design for the modification to the existing pedestrian crossing on Bryant Street at the intersection of Broadarrow Road, Narwee, as per the plan U652 attached to the report, be approved.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committees consideration of detailed design of the modification of the existing pedestrian crossing on Bryant Street, Narwee.

 

Background

 

2.      As per Council’s resolution for item ASS02-17 at the Regular Council Meeting in November 2017 part (d);

 

“That Council carries out an assessment of all four lane pedestrian crossings in the LGA to determine compliance or otherwise with current Australian Road Rules and RMS Traffic Guidelines.”

 

3.      As part of this assessment it was highlighted that the existing pedestrian crossing on Bryant Street near the intersection with Broadarrow Road, Narwee did not comply with the RMS Technical Direction for pedestrian crossings.

 

4.      Council has therefore undertaken a survey and detailed design for the modification of the existing pedestrian crossing in order to comply with the RMS Technical Direction for pedestrian crossings and improve safety in this location.

 

Financial Implications

 

5.      Additional non-budgeted funds of $95,000 from a suitable grant application or the 2019/20 Capital Works Budget or the 2019/20 RMS Traffic Facilities Grant.

Item:                   TAC176-18        Neville Street, Oatley - Proposed Pedestrian Refuge 

Author:              Coordinator Traffic & Transport

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

(a)     That a pedestrian refuge with associated line marking and signage be constructed in Neville Street near the intersection with Oatley Parade.

(b)     That “No Stopping” signage be installed on the northern and southern side of Neville Street, between Oatley Parade and Oatley Avenue, as shown on plan U617 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of a proposed pedestrian refuge in Neville Street, Oatley.

 

Background

 

2.      Council is extending the footpath along the eastern side of Oatley Parade from Myra Place, to the Oatley Memorial Gardens near Neville Street.

 

3.      Council Engineers have completed a detailed design for the new footpath and are proposing the construction of a pedestrian refuge in Neville Street at the intersection of Oatley Parade. This would assist the pedestrians crossing near the intersection from the new footpath to the existing path at Oatley Memorial Gardens and increase the safety in that location by controlling vehicle turning movements.

 

4.      The installation of a pedestrian refuge would require the adjustment to the existing “No Stopping” zones in Neville Street and result in the removal of approximately 5 car spaces.

 

Financial Implications

 

5.      Within budget allocation – Council’s Capital Works Program – approximately $30,000.

 

Community Engagement

 

6.      Community engagement is not required as the pedestrian refuge is not located adjacent properties.

Item:                   TAC180-18        Carwar Avenue, Carss Park - Modification to "Mail Zone" 

Author:              Coordinator Traffic & Transport

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That the existing “Mail Zone” on the eastern side of Carwar Avenue, Carss Park, north of Carinya Place, be converted to “No Parking, Australia Post Vehicles Excepted”, as shown on plan TC1800 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for changes to the existing “Mail Zone” in Carwar Avenue, Carss Park.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received a request from the office of Chris Minns MP, Member for Kogarah, on behalf of his constituents, for a drop off zone to be installed close to the shops on Carwar Avenue as elderly residents find it difficult to walk if they can’t find parking in close proximity.

 

3.      The parking area near the shops on Carwar Avenue is currently signposted as "1 Hour" parking.  This timed parking zone is used by customers of the nearby businesses and Council is not in support of converting the customer parking to a "No Parking" zone.

  

Comments

 

4.      Upon investigation of this request, Council is however proposing to convert the "Mail Zone" on the eastern side of Carwar Avenue to a "No Parking, Australia Post Vehicles Excepted" zone.  This area is approximately 20 metres from the Chemist and would provide a location where people can be dropped off legally near the shops on Carwar Avenue.  Under the NSW Road Rules drivers are not permitted to stop in a “Mail Zone”.

 

Financial Implications

 

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

 

Community Engagement

 

6.      Community engagement is not required as no properties are affected.

Item:                   TAC181-18        Frederick Avenue, Beverly Hills - Proposed "No Stopping" zone extension 

Author:              Coordinator Traffic & Transport

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That the existing “No Stopping” zone on the southern side of Frederick Avenue, adjacent to number 19, be extended 7m to the east, as shown on plan TC1802 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed “No Stopping” zone extension in Frederick Avenue, Beverly Hills.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received a request from a local resident to investigate options to prevent vehicles parking across their driveway at No. 19 Frederick Avenue.  Due to the close proximity to the Beverly Hills retail area, vehicles have been frequently blocking the driveway access, specifically at night.

 

3.      A site meeting was conducted with the affected resident to discuss the available options and to consider the modification of the existing “No Stopping” zone adjacent to the driveway to prevent vehicles obstructing the driveway.

 

Proposal

 

4.      Upon investigation of this request, it is proposed to extend the existing “No Stopping” zone on the southern side of Frederick Avenue, 7m to the east, to cover the driveway of No. 19.  This would indicate to drivers that they cannot stop in the area across the driveway.

 

5.      The distance between the driveways of No. 19 and No. 17 Frederick Street was measured at 8.4m. This distance does not allow to (2) vehicles to legally park in accordance with the NSW Road Rules. Therefore as a result of the “No Stopping” zone being extended by 7m across the driveway, there would be no loss of legal street parking in Frederick Avenue.  It would then provide a 6m area for a vehicle to park between the new sign and the driveway of No. 17.

 

Financial Implications

 

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

 

Community Engagement

 

7.        Community engagement was conducted including a site meeting with the affected resident on the proposal.

Item:                   TAC182-18        The Crescent, Kingsgrove - Proposed Access To Site 

Author:              Coordinator Traffic & Transport

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

a)      That Option 2 (Left In / Left Out) be supported as the preferred access off The Crescent for a 19m Articulated Vehicle to No. 6 The Crescent, Kingsgrove.

b)      That Option 1 (Right In / Right Out) off The Crescent also be approved for a 19m Articulated Vehicle to No. 6 The Crescent, Kingsgrove in the event that Option 2 is unfeasible for any reason.

c)      That “No Stopping” zones associated with either Option 1 or 2 in The Crescent be approved to improve the heavy vehicle movements for the site.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed heavy vehicle access to the development site on The Crescent, Kingsgrove.

 

Background

 

2.      A Development Application (DA) with street address of 6 The Crescent, Kingsgrove and 115 Vanessa Street, Kingsgrove sought consent for the removal of eight trees, and alterations and additions to the existing industrial warehouse to provide a drive through truck loading area and awning within the Vanessa Street frontage.

 

3.      The drive though loading bay was proposed to create an additional tenancy within the warehouse. 

 

4.      The DA was refused by Council for numerous reasons, including the vehicular access to the site in terms of safety, efficiency and usability.  The site requested access to accommodate a 19m articulated heavy vehicle off Vanessa Street.

 

5.      The matter has been listed for a court hearing in September and council officers have requested that the Traffic Advisory Committee give approval for either Option 1 (Right In / Right Out) or Option 2 (Left In / Left Out) for a 19m Articulated Vehicle to access the subject site. The two options with turning templates are attached the report.

 

Comments

 

6.      Option 1 provides for right in/right out access to a loading area on the western side of the site with access off The Crescent.  To accommodate the truck turning right into the site from The Crescent, a new driveway is proposed south of the existing car park exit (which will be closed).  To exit the site, the existing entry driveway will be widened.  To turn right into the site, the truck does so from the western side of The Crescent resulting in the loss of 4 on street spaces on the western side of The Crescent (near the intersection with Vanessa Street).  To allow access to/from the site, parking on the eastern side of The Crescent (south of the existing entry driveway) would need to be reconfigured with a loss of 3 spaces.  Thus there is a net loss of 7 spaces with this option.  The existing car park entry driveway would be widened to allow for two-way access to the car park.

 

7.      Option 2 provides for left in/left out access to a loading area on the western side of the site with access off The Crescent.  To accommodate the truck turning left into the site, the existing entry driveway would be widened.  To provide egress from the site a new driveway will be provided south of the existing exit driveway (which will be closed).   To allow access to/from the site, parking on the eastern side of The Crescent (south of the existing entry driveway) would need to be reconfigured with a loss of 3 spaces.  Thus the there is a net loss of 3 spaces with this option adjacent to the site only.  To enter the site the truck would access The Crescent from the western connection to Vanessa Street, travel around The Crescent in a clockwise direction and then turn left into the site. The existing car park entry driveway would be widened to allow for two-way access to the car park.

 

Financial Implications

 

8.      No budget impact for this report.

 

Community Engagement

 

9.      Community engagement will be conducted once the matter has been determined by the Court as to the outcome of the driveway location.

Recommendation

That a 12m “No Stopping” zone be installed on the eastern side of Woniora Road, south of Cole Street, as shown on plan TC1809 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

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

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received a request from a representative of Trandev Bus Company to consider the installation of parking restriction signs in Woniora Road near Cole Street.

(a)     That a 7m “Disabled Parking” zone and pram ramp be installed on the southern side of Grosvenor Road, adjacent to St Mark’s Anglican Church.

(b)     That an 18m “P10 Minute, 8am – 10am, 2pm – 4pm, School Days” zone be installed on the southern side of Grosvenor Road, adjacent to the “Disabled Parking” zone, as shown on plan TC1786 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed parking restrictions in Grosvenor Road, South Hurstville.

 

Background

 

2.      At the Council meeting of 25 June 2018, the following Notice of Motion by Councillor Landsberry was resolved (NM057-18) in relation to car parking near St Mark’s Anglican Church in South Hurstville:

 

“(a) That Council Officers investigate the current parking demand and availability at The Mall and Grosvenor Road, South Hurstville near St Mark's Anglican Church, and provide a report to the Local Traffic Advisory Committee with options to improve the provision and availability of parking at this location.

 

(b) That the report include the investigation of rear-to-kerb parking configurations, dedicated disabled parking, wedding/funeral vehicle parking and short stay parking restrictions to facilitate drop-off and pick-up at St Marks Pre-school Kindergarten, South Hurstville.”

 

3.      Council’s Traffic Officer met representatives of St Mark’s Anglican Church in mid-July to discuss the parking issues near the Church and Pre-School.

 

4.      The Church has advised that attendees with a Mobility Parking Scheme (MPS) Permit have difficulty finding parking in the street near the entrance to the Church and as a result they have requested the installation of a “Disabled Parking” zone in Grosvenor Road.

 

5.      A request was also received to consider the installation of a short-term parking zone near the Pre-School to provide a location where drivers can park near the entrance during peak drop off and pick up times.

 

Proposal

 

6.      As a result of these requests, Council is proposing the installation of a 7m “Disabled Parking” zone and pram ramp on the southern side of Grosvenor Road, adjacent to the entrance to St Mark’s Anglican Church.  This would provide an area where drivers holding a MPS Permit can park.

 

7.      It is also proposed to covert three spaces (18 metres) in Grosvenor Road, adjacent to the Church, to “P10 Minute, 8am – 10am, 2pm – 4pm, School Days” to assist parents dropping off and picking up children at the Pre-School.  These hours are consistent with the morning and afternoon peak periods for parents.

 

8.      In regards to the wedding/funeral vehicle parking, Council has consulted with the Church and an agreement has been reached on this issue and the Church will request Council for approval to occupy the parking spaces when this parking is required, similar to a Road / Lane Closure request.  As a result, no parking signs are required to be installed at this stage.

 

9.      The investigation into the angle parking off The Mall, adjacent to the Church, is still ongoing and any proposed changes will be submitted to a future Traffic Advisory Committee meeting for approval.

 

Financial Implications

 

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

 

Community Engagement

 

11.     The residents in this vicinity and Church have been notified by letter of the proposed parking changes.  The closing date for submissions was 24 August 2018.  No objections were received.

Item:                   TAC187-18        Broadarrow Road, Narwee - Proposed "1/2P" zone 

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That the existing “1P, 8.30am-6pm, Mon-Fri, 8.30am-12.30pm, Sat” zone on southern side of Broadarrow Road, Narwee be converted to a “1/2P, 8.30am-6pm, Mon-Fri, 8.30am-12.30pm, Sat” zone as shown on the plan TC1796 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the conversion of the existing “1P” zone to a “1/2P” zone on the southern side of Broadarrow Road.

 

Background

 

2.      A request was received by Council from Mark Coure MP, Member for Oatley, on behalf of a resident to investigate parking conditions in the Narwee shopping precinct in particular highlighting accessibility to business and increasing vehicle turnover.

 

3.      Currently there is a 40m “1P, 8.30am-6pm, Mon-Fri, 8.30am-12.30pm, Sat” zone on the southern side of Broadarrow Road.

 

4.      Upon investigations by Council officers, it was noted that the current “1P” parking zone, adjacent the pedestrian refuge is non-compliant with the RMS Technical Direction.

 

5.      It is therefore proposed to convert the existing 45m “1P, 8.30am-6pm, Mon-Fri, 8.30am-12.30pm, Sat” zone to a 40m “1/2P, 8.30am-6pm, Mon-Fri, 8.30am-12.30pm, Sat” zone. This will allow for greater vehicle turnover and allow for more people to access the shopping facilities and business in this location. Furthermore it will also comply with the RMS Technical Direction, improving safety in this location.

 

Financial Implications

 

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

 

Community Engagement

 

7.      The businesses in the vicinity have been notified of the proposed conversion of the existing “1P” zone to a “1/2P” zone. No objections were received.

Item:                   TAC191-18        Ogilvy Street Peakhurst - Road Safety Concerns  

Author:              Senior Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

(a)     To be determined by Committee

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report is seeking the Committee’s review and consideration for the traffic congestion in Ogilvy Street, Peakhurst. 

 

Background

 

2.   Council received numerous representation in regards to road safety Concerns in Ogilvy Street, Peakhurst, in particular within the vicinity of residents property.

3.   Ogilvy Street, south of Henry Lawson Drive has numerous traffic generating developments within close proximity of each other.  There is Peakhurst West Shopping area, comprising of 5 different businesses, including a Fruit and Deli Market. There is Peakhurst West Public School including the Peakhurst West School Swimming Pool.

 

4.   All these developments increase demand on parking in Ogilvy Street, where different road users compete for parking as close to their venue as they can obtain.

 

5.   To help create quick turnover of parking to cater for the different uses, Council has installed a variety of timed parking such 1/2P, 1P and 2P, in addition to unrestricted parking.

 

6.   At locations where there is a safety concern or impediment to a property, Council has installed No Stopping restriction. 

 

7.   A resident living directly outside the school in Ogilvy Street has expressed her concern with illegal driver behaviour near her premises.

 

8.   Opposite to her home and outside her home there is a “No Stopping” restriction to help clear the carriageway of Ogilvy Street and to facilitate easier manoeuvring in and out of Ogilvy Street.

 

9.   The resident has reported that motorists frequently ignore the “No Stopping” restriction blocking access to her home, and making it difficult to enter and exit her premises and that this has caused numerous conflicts between her and the offending motorists.

 

10. Accordingly the resident has requested for numerous measures to take place in order to help the traffic congestion in the area.

 

 

 

 

11. The resident has requested the following

 

a.   More parking enforcement on Ogilvy Street all week and also during the weekend

 

b.   Council to liaise with the school community to raise awareness of illegal driver behaviour and the danger it poses to the school children and the community

 

c.   Council to investigate building concrete planter boxes where the No Stopping restriction exists to permanently deter illegal driver behaviour.

 

d.   That Council communicates with Peakhurst West Public school requesting that they open their car park for public during weekends to ease parking congestion in Ogilvy Street.

 

12. Council’s Parking Coordinator of Parking and Rangers advised that his department rolled out the first phase of a school education programme at the beginning of term 2, where an educational flyer was developed and sent to all the schools in the area by the team leader of parking.

 

13. It was requested that schools utilise this information in any correspondence to parents to help them become more aware of the consequences for parking illegally and some strategies to minimise congestion around schools. ( Copy of the flyer is attached)

 

14. Furthermore the Traffic Section is in the process of implementing a Road Safety awareness programme for schools and road users around schools.

Author:              Coordinator Traffic & Transport

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That the report be received and noted.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the results of the traffic study in Tooronga Terrace, Beverly Hills.

 

Background

 

2.      At the Council meeting of 27 November 2017, the following motion in relation to Tooronga Terrace was endorsed:

 

a)   “That Council remove the pedestrian crossing and undertake the associated safety works in accordance with the resolution of Council dated 3 July 2017.

 

b)   That Council request the RMS to increase the time and frequency of the pedestrian lights at the intersection of Tooronga Terrace and King Georges Road.

 

c)   That Council refer the following matters to the Traffic Committee for a thorough investigation and report back to a subsequent Council meeting:

 

1.   Installation of speed humps and traffic calming devices along Tooronga Terrace to slow down traffic;

2.   Improved and additional disabled parking places; and

3.   A dedicated drop off zone in the vicinity of the removed crossing.”

 

Comments

 

3.      Council has completed Items a) and b). 

 

4.      In relation to Item c) Part 1, Council carried out a comprehensive traffic study in Tooronga Terrace, between King Georges Road and Pallamana Parade, from Friday 27 July 2018 to Thursday 2 August 2018. The results are shown in the table below:

 

AVERAGE ANNUAL DAILY TRAFFIC (AADT)

85TH PERCENTILE SPEED

7,567 vehicles

52km/h

 

5.      The 85th percentile speed is defined as the speed at or below which 85% of all vehicles are observed to travel.  As Tooronga Terrace is posted as a 50km/h speed limited road, the calculated 85th% speed of 52km/h is deemed acceptable and does not warrant the installation of speed control devices.

 

6.      In relation to Item c) Part 2, in September 2017 Council installed an additional “Disabled Parking” space on the service road off Tooronga Terrace near the IGA to assist people with a Mobility Parking Permit (MPS) to park in close proximity to the Train Station and nearby businesses.  As there are also two (2) existing “Disabled Parking” spaces on the southern side of Tooronga Terrace, opposite Wyanga Lane, additional “Disabled Parking” spaces are not warranted at this stage.

 

7.      In relation to Item c) Part 3, Council has assessed the feasibility of the installation of a dedicated drop off and pick up zone in Tooronga Terrace near the removed crossing.  Due to the impact that parked vehicles, on the southern side of Tooronga Terrace, would have on traffic flow for westbound vehicles, an existing pedestrian fence and “Bus Zones”, there are no suitable locations that a drop off and pick up zone could be installed in Tooronga Terrace.

 

Financial Implications

 

8.      No budget impact for this report.

7.      The criteria for the Federal Government Blackspot Program is a minimum 3 injury crashes over a 5 year period. 

 

8.      As none of the intersections mentioned above are eligible for Blackspot Funding and the low reported crash history over the 5 year period, the installation of traffic control devices is not warranted at this stage.  Council will however continue to monitor the intersections and also request St George Police to monitor the locations for reckless drivers and take appropriate action as their resources permit.

 

Financial Implications

 

9.      No budget impact for this report.
