Item:                   TAC216-18        Roberts Avenue, Mortdale - Modification to "Bus Zone"
 

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That the existing 26m “Bus Zone” on the northern side of Roberts Avenue, Mortdale, be reduced in length to 21.5m, as shown on plan TC1833 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the proposed modification to the “Bus Zone” in Roberts Avenue, Mortdale.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received representation from Punchbowl Bus Company to modify the existing “Bus Zone” to accommodate one car space between the driveways of No.’s 6 and 8.

 

Proposal

 

3.      Following investigations, it is proposed to modify the existing “Bus Zone” from 26m to 21.5m providing a distance of 5.5m, between the two driveways, that allows one vehicle to park on the street.

 

4.      Furthermore, buses can utilise the double driveway adjacent No.’s 2 and 4 as part of the draw out still allowing buses to safely stop parallel to the kerb.

 

Financial Implications

 

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

 

Community Engagement

Item:                   TAC217-18        Kensington Street, Kogarah - Proposed Modifications for Additional "Bus Zone" 

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

(a)     That the existing “2P, 9.30am – 6.00pm, Mon – Fri, 8.30am – 12.30pm, Sat” on the northern side of Kensington Street, Kogarah be converted to an 18m “Bus Zone”.

(b)     That the existing “No Parking, All Other Times” zone on the northern side of Kensington Street, Kogarah be reduced to 6m with an accompanying supplementary “No Stopping, 6.30am – 9.30am, Mon – Fri” zone.

(c)     That the existing “No Stopping” zone on the northern side of Kensington Street, east of Belgrave Street be reduced by 6m.

(d)     That the existing “No Stopping” zone on the northern side of Kensington Street, west of Wicks Lane be extended by 4m, as shown on plan TC1836 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the proposed on-street parking modifications for an additional ‘”Bus Zone”.

 

Background

 

2.      Council received representation from Punchbowl Bus Company requesting Council to investigate options for the provision of an additional “Bus Zone” in Kensington Street.

 

3.      The current 16m “Bus Zone” on the northern side of Kensington Street, between O’Keefes Lane and Belgrave Street, no longer has the capacity to meet the demands of the bus services that utilise this stop.

 

4.      Two additional bus services have been added to the existing stop since it was installed and therefore an additional “Bus Zone” is required to accommodate the growing need for public transport infrastructure in this area.

 

Proposal

 

5.      As a result, it is proposed to convert and modify the existing “2P, 9.30am – 6.00pm, Mon – Fri, 8.30am – 12.30pm, Sat” zone to an 18m “Bus Zone”.

 

6.      It is also proposed to reduce the existing “No Parking, All Other Times” zone on the northern side of Kensington Street, with an accompanying supplementary “No Stopping, 6.30am – 9.30am, Mon – Fri” zone, from 9m to 6m.

 

7.      Furthermore, it is proposed to adjust both “No Stopping” zones at the intersections of Belgrave Street and Wicks Lane to meet statutory requirements.

8.      The proposal will accommodate demand by providing an additional area for buses to safely stop parallel to the kerb, without hindrance of parked vehicles and result in a safer situation for all road users.

 

Financial Implications

 

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

 

Community Engagement

 

10.    Residents in this vicinity have been notified by letter of the proposed modifications and additional “Bus Zone”. The closing date for submissions was 26 October 2018; the following feedback was received as part of the consultation process.

 

a)   26 – 28 Belgrave St, Strata Committee – Objected to the proposal noting that:

 

i.    Increased noise impacts to the surrounding residential unit blocks as well as an increase in traffic volumes.

ii.   Safety concerns regarding pedestrians unsafely crossing the road to catch the bus.

iii.  Location would be more ideal at other locations in this area.

 

11.    Regarding traffic, noise and safety concerns, no further additional bus services will be added in this area, merely providing the infrastructure to support the current needs. The nearby traffic lights also provide an area for pedestrians to safely cross the road. On this basis, the proposal has been deemed acceptable.

 

12.    Council in conjunction with Transdev and Punchbowl Bus Company have assessed various other locations for an additional “Bus Zone”. The surrounding locations have numerous parking controls that are utilised by the nearby businesses and the general public. Therefore, the location has been deemed acceptable to minimise impact in this locality.

Item:                   TAC218-18        West Street, Blakehurst - Proposed "Bus Zone" Modification 

Author:              Coordinator Traffic & Transport

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That the existing 23.5m “Bus Zone, 8am – 9am, 3pm – 4pm School Days” on the northern side of West Street, be reduced in length to 18.5m to allow a driveway into West Street Reserve, as shown on plan TC1850 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed changes to the “Bus Zone” in West Street, Blakehurst.

 

Background

 

2.      Sydney Water is upgrading the Odour Control Unit (OCU) located behind West Street Reserve.  This work is part of the SewerFix Program to improve the wastewater system and protect public health and the environment.

 

3.      The work involves:

 

·    Installing a permanent access road to the OCU

·    Installing a footpath to the children’s playground

·    Planting shrubbery to help screen the OCU and vent shaft.

 

4.      Currently there is a 23.5m “Bus Zone, 8am – 9am, 3pm – 4pm School Days” on the northern side of West Street adjacent to the park.  This zone is required to be modified due to the installation of the new driveway into the park.  The “Bus Zone” only operates during the morning and afternoon school day peak periods for students at the nearby Blakehurst High School.

 

Proposal

 

5.      It is proposed to reduce the existing 23.5m “Bus Zone, 8am – 9am, 3pm – 4pm School Days” on the northern side of West Street, to 18.5m as a result of the new driveway.  Due to the new driveway and existing driveway at No. 214 West Street, this would allow a distance of 11m where the bus can pull out.

 

6.      It was not supported to extend the “Bus Zone” in a northern direction as it would reduce the street parking availability outside No. 212 West Street.

 

7.      Council has been advised that the new driveway to access the park will only be used once a month and outside the times that the “Bus Zone” will be in operation so that there is no conflict.

 

 

Financial Implications

 

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

Background

 

2.      Council has received a request to investigate the vehicle movements at the intersection of Iraga Avenue and Coreen Avenue, Peakhurst.

 

3.      Currently there is no line marking or signage at the intersection to determine who has the right of way and Council has been advised there have been some near misses in this location.

 

Proposal

 

4.      As a result, Council is proposing to install a “Give Way” sign and associated line marking in Coreen Avenue at the intersection with Iraga Avenue to improve vehicle movements and safety.  A similar treatment is proposed at the intersection of Iraga Avenue and Moombara Avenue.

 

5.      It is also proposed to install the statutory 10m “No Stopping” signs on the western corner of Coreen Avenue to prevent vehicles parking on the bend and increase the sight distance for drivers exiting Coreen Avenue onto Iraga Avenue.

 

Financial Implications

 

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

 

Community Engagement

 

7.      Community engagement was conducted including: A letter and plan of the proposed changes was distributed to the nearby residents.  The closing date for submissions was 19 October 2018.  Council received two phone calls of support and no objections.

Proposal

 

4.      Upon investigation, Council is proposing to install the statutory 10m “No Stopping” signs at the intersection of Eldon Street and Talbot Street to prevent vehicles parking on the corners and increase the safety in this location.

 

5.      It is also proposed to install a “Give Way” sign and associated line marking in Eldon Street at Talbot Street to further improve vehicle movements and safety.

Author:              Coordinator Traffic & Transport

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

(a)     That curve and speed advisory signs be installed at the bends in Rona Street, as shown on plan TC1843 Sheet 1 attached to the report.

(b)     That the existing “No Parking” signs on the bends of Rona Street be converted to “No Stopping”, as shown on plan TC1843 Sheet 2 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed signage in Rona Street, Peakhurst.

 

Background

 

2.      A request has been received by Council from a local resident to consider the installation of speed control devices in Rona Street, Peakhurst.

 

3.      Council has installed a traffic counter in Rona Street, between Samuel Street and the bend that indicated the 85th percentile speed (the speed at or below which 85% of all vehicles are observed to travel) was 48km/h.  As a result, it did not warrant the installation of speed control devices such as humps.

 

Proposal

 

4.      Council is however proposing to install 15km/h speed advisory signs on the approaches to both bends of Rona Street that would assist in influencing driver behaviour in these locations.  This advisory speed was calculated using the Ball Bank Test on approach to the curves from both directions.

 

5.      It is also proposed to convert the existing “No Parking” signs on the bends to “No Stopping” that would enforce the parking requirements of NSW Road Rule 208 (6), which states that drivers must position their vehicle at least 3 metres from any dividing line on the roadway.

 

Financial Implications

 

6.      Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $700.

 

Community Engagement

 

7.      Community engagement was conducted as follows; A letter and associated plans of the proposed changes were distributed to the nearby residents.  The closing date for submissions was 19 October 2018.  No objections were received.

Item:                   TAC223-18        Kensington Lane, Kogarah - Proposed "No Stopping" zone 

Author:              Coordinator Traffic & Transport

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That the existing 17m “No Parking, 8.30am – 6pm Mon – Fri, 8.30am – 12.30pm Sat” zone on the western side of Kensington Lane, be converted to “No Stopping”, as shown on plan TC1389 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed sign changes in Kensington Lane, Kogarah.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received a request to investigate the parking conditions on the western side of Kensington Lane, between Post Office Lane and Kensington Street, Kogarah.

 

3.      Currently there is a 17m “No Parking, 8.30am – 6pm Mon – Fri, 8.30am – 12.30pm Sat” zone on the western side of the lane that permits vehicles to park unrestricted outside the “No Parking” times.

 

4.      Due to the narrowness of the lane, these parked vehicles are impeding the traffic flow in the street as well as vehicle access into the adjacent properties.

 

Proposal

 

5.      As a result, Council is proposing to convert the existing “No Parking, 8.30am – 6pm Mon – Fri, 8.30am – 12.30pm Sat” zone on the western side of Kensington Lane, to a “No Stopping” zone.  This would prevent vehicles stopping in this location and lead to an improvement in vehicle movements in the lane.

 

Financial Implications

 

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

 

Community Engagement

 

7.      Community engagement was conducted including, a letter and plan being distributed to the nearby businesses and adjacent Church on the proposed sign changes.  The closing date for submissions was 19 October 2018. No objections were received.

Item:                   TAC224-18        Forest Road, Hurstville - 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 Forest Road, be extended 17m towards Hill Street, as shown on plan TC1852 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

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

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received a request from a representative of the NSW police to investigate the parking along the southern side of Forest Road, opposite the intersection with Hudson Street.

 

Proposal

 

3.      Following investigation of this request, it was observed that drivers can legally park between the existing “No Stopping” zone and the driveway of No. 105.  As a result, a vehicle parked in this location is impeding through traffic on Forest Road and causing congestion.

 

4.      Council is therefore proposing that the existing “No Stopping” zone on the southern side of Forest Road, be extended 17m towards Hill Street.  This would be a removal of one legal parking space, due to the driveway, and would improve traffic flow along Forest Road.

 

Financial Implications

 

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

Item:                   TAC225-18        The Crescent, Kingsgrove - Proposed Truck Parking Areas 

Author:              Coordinator Traffic & Transport

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That a 90m “Long or Heavy Vehicles Permitted to Stop Longer Than 1 Hour, 7pm – 5am Mon – Fri, All Day Sat – Sun & Public Hols” zone be installed on the northern and southern side of The Crescent, Kingsgrove, adjacent to No.’s 3 and 4, as shown on plan TC1844 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration on truck parking areas in The Crescent, Kingsgrove.

 

Background

 

2.      Council continually receives requests in relation to the parking of heavy vehicles in the Georges River LGA.  In accordance with NSW Road Rules 2014 (200), the driver of a heavy vehicle (GVM of 4.5 tonnes or more) or a long vehicle (7.5m long or longer) cannot stop on a road in a built up area for longer than 1 hour unless the driver is dropping off or picking up goods.

 

3.      As a result of the Road Rule requirements, Council cannot permit the parking of heavy vehicles in a built up area, unless signposted otherwise.

 

4.      Council has identified The Crescent in the Kingsgrove Industrial area as a potential location that heavy vehicles could park on the road due to the distance from residential areas with minimal impacts on street parking for other road users.

 

Proposal

 

5.      As a result, Council is proposing to install a 90m “Long or Heavy Vehicles Permitted to Stop Longer Than 1 Hour, 7pm – 5am Mon – Fri, All Day Sat – Sun & Public Hols” zone on the northern and southern side of The Crescent.  This would allow heavy vehicles to legally park during the specified hours and days in accordance with the Road Rules.

 

6.      These signs are RMS approved and also permit vehicles, other than a heavy or long vehicle, to park within the zone so there would be no loss of parking in the street.

 

Financial Implications

 

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

 

 

 

 

Community Engagement

 

8.        Community engagement was conducted as follows; A letter and plan of the proposal was distributed to the tenants and owners of the businesses in this vicinity of The Crescent.  The closing date for submissions was 26 October 2018.  Council did receive one phone call of objection from a resident of Tallawalla Street in close proximity to The Crescent.  The resident expressed their concerns with allowing trucks to park overnight and thus creating significant noise in the mornings when the trucks are started and driving along The Crescent causing issues for nearby residential properties.  The resident requested that alternate locations be investigated and that the matter be deferred pending the outcome of alternate locations.

Item:                   TAC227-18        Vivienne Street, Kingsgrove - Proposed Timed 'No Stopping' zone 

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

(a)     That a 30m “No Stopping, 7am – 9am, 4pm – 6pm, Mon – Fri” zone be installed on the southern side of Vivienne Street, Kingsgrove.

(b)     That the current 8m “No Parking” zone on the southern side of Vivienne Street be modified to “No Parking, All Other Times”.

(c)     That a Statutory 10m “No Stopping” zone be installed on the southern and northern side of Vivienne Street at the intersection of Kingsgrove Road, Kingsgrove, as shown on plan TC1851.

(d)     That the applicant be notified of Council’s decision and bear the financial costs of the signage works.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the proposed changes to on-street parking in Vivienne Street, Kingsgrove.

 

Background

 

2.      A proposed DA at No. 301 Kingsgrove Road, Kingsgrove was submitted to Council in October 2017 for the demolition of the existing structures and construction of a new 47 place child care centre with basement car parking.

 

3.      A traffic and parking assessment has been prepared by Greys Australia Consultants which indicates the local road network has capacity to accommodate the vehicular movements anticipated by the proposal. The proposed off-street parking provisions satisfy the numerical requirements of Council’s Development Control Plan (DCP) – Section 5.3 – Child Cares which states:

 

Ø Staff Parking: 1 Space per 2 Staff Members;

o Five (5) required, applicant provided eight (8);

 

Ø Parent Parking: 1 Space per 10 Children;

o Three (3) required, applicant has provided six (6);

 

Ø Total spaces required: Eight (8); Total spaces provided: Fourteen (14);

 

4.      The submitted DA satisfies the design requirements outlined in AS/NZS 2890.1:2004 - Off Street Car Parking”.  The submitted swept path diagrams and intersection assessments were all deemed acceptable.

 

5.      At the Local Planning Panel held 5th October 2018, it was determined that the DA be deferred pending additional information from the applicant regarding the following;

Amended traffic report that considers traffic conflicts in Vivienne Street and Kingsgrove Road during peak school hours and drop off and pick up times of the proposed child care centre. In particular the amended traffic report should consider additional traffic and parking signage within Vivienne Street to minimize traffic conflict in that street and Kingsgrove Road.

 

6.      As a result, an amended Traffic Report with the following inclusion has been submitted to Council for consideration;

 

The existing 8m "No Parking" zone at Vivienne Street, along frontage of the proposed development, may encourage parents to stop their vehicles to pick-up/drop-off their children to avoid morning peak hour delays by not entering the provided basement car park. It is recommended to alter the existing "No Parking" zone to "No Stopping" during parents' drop-off/pick-up peak hours which are anticipated to be 7am-9am and 4pm-6pm accordingly. The Council may retain the "No Parking" signposting outside these periods.

 

Proposal

 

7.      It is therefore proposed to install a 30m “No Stopping, 7am – 9am, 4pm – 6pm, Mon – Fri” zone on the southern side of Vivienne Street encompassing the whole frontage of the proposed child care centre on this street, reducing traffic conflict in this location and encouraging that pick up/drop off is to take place within the centre.

 

8.      Furthermore it is proposed to modify the existing 8m ‘No Parking’ zone to ‘No Parking, All Other Times’ and install a statutory 10m “No Stopping” zone at the intersection of Kingsgrove Road.  The existing “No Parking” zone was installed to improve the vehicle access for the driveway on the northern side of Vivienne Street.

 

9.      The statutory 10m “No Stopping” signs will also be installed on the southern and northern side of Vivienne Street at the intersection of Kingsgrove Road to further improve vehicle turn movements.

 

Financial Implications

 

10.    No budget impact for this report. Cost of works to be borne by the applicant.

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

(a)     That a 35m “No Stopping” zone be installed on the northern side of Railway Parade at the intersection of Andover Street, Allawah, as shown on plan TC1840 attached to the report.

(b)     That a 30m “Bus Zone” be installed on the northern side of Railway Parade at the intersection of Hamilton Street, Allawah, as shown on plant TC1841 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed parking restrictions in Railway Parade, Allawah.

 

Background

 

2.      Council received a representation from MP Chris Minns, Member for Kogarah on behalf of his constituent, requesting Council to investigate the intersection of Railway Parade and Andover Street, in particular highlighting bicycle safety.

 

3.      Currently, it is unrestricted parking on the northern side of Railway Parade at the T-intersection of Andover Street. It can be observed that; when vehicles utilise this section of on-street parking and vehicles traveling eastbound wanting to turn right into Andover Street, traffic flow is impacted.

 

Proposal

 

4.      Following investigations, it is proposed to install a 35m “No Stopping” zone on the northern side of Railway Parade, at the T-intersection of Andover Street. The proposal will eliminate vehicles parking in this location, improve traffic flow and increase safety for all road users.

 

5.      Furthermore, the intersection of Railway Parade and Hamilton Street was also investigated and it is proposed to formalise the existing Bus Stop to a 30m ‘Bus Zone’ allowing buses to safely stop parallel to the kerb, without hindrance of parked vehicles and result in a safer situation for all road users

 

Financial Implications

 

6.      Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $800.

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That the existing “No Parking, 6pm-Midnight, Mon-Sun” zone, on Lobb Crescent west of Jubilee Avenue, be converted to “No Parking, 6pm-9pm, Mon-Fri, 4pm-9pm, Sat-Sun”, as shown on plan TC1845 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the proposed changes to the existing “No Parking” zone on Lobb Crescent, Beverley Park.

 

Background

 

2.      A request was received by St George Police Local Area Command to investigate the existing parking conditions in Lobb Crescent, in particular highlight access requirements to the St George Leagues Club during A-League and W-League fixtures at Jubilee Stadium.

 

3.      Upon investigations by Council officers into the required times of the “No Parking” zone it was proposed to convert the existing “No Parking, 6pm-Midnight, Mon-Sun” zone to a “No Parking” zone. Following consultation with residents this was revised to a “No Parking, 6pm-9pm, Mon-Fri, 4pm-9pm, Sat-Sun” zone. This will prevent vehicles parking in this location during weeknight and weekend games for A-League, W-League and NRL, but will allow residents, golf course patrons and users of the dog park to park in this location outside of these hours.

 

Financial Implications

 

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

 

Community Engagement

 

5.      The residents in this vicinity were notified by letter of the proposed installation of a “No Parking” zone. Following feedback plans were revised to a “No Parking, 6pm-9pm, Mon-Fri, 4pm-9pm, Sat-Sun” zone.

Recommendation

That a 4m “No Stopping” zone be installed on River Street, Blakehurst, adjacent to No.3, as shown on the plan TC1834 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the proposed installation of a “No Stopping” zone on River Street, Blakehurst.

 

Background

 

2.      A request was received by a resident of River Street, Blakehurst, in regards to restricting vehicles parking at the small space of kerb between No. 1 and No. 3 River Street and restricting access to properties. In particular during school pick-up and drop-off times.

 

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 Stopping” zone. This will prevent vehicles from stopping in this location.

 

4.      It was considered to install a “No Parking” zone in this location, however it could lead to parents using it as a drop off and pick up location and continually restricting access to the properties during the peak periods and was therefore deemed inappropriate.

 

Financial Implications

 

5.      Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facilities Grant – Approximately $200.

 

Community Engagement

 

6.      The residents in this vicinity were notified by letter of the proposal for the installation of the parking restriction signs in River Street. No objections were received.

Recommendation

(a)     That the existing “No Parking, Motorcycles Excepted” zone on the southern side of Park Street, between No. 1 and No. 7, be converted to a “No Stopping” zone.

(b)     That a mountable kerb island be installed on the southern side of Park Street between No. 1 and No. 7 Park Street. as shown on plan TC1838 attached to the report.

(c)     That the detailed design of the island be submitted to the RMS for approval prior to installation.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed installation of an island on Park Street, Peakhurst.

 

Background

 

2.      Council recently installed a 4m “No Parking, Motorcycles Excepted” zone between the two driveways of No. 1 and No. 7 Park Street, Peakhurst. The installation was intended to prevent cars parking in this location and allow for smaller motorcycles to utilise the on-street parking in this location.

 

3.      Since the installation of the “No Parking” zone, Council has observed multiple vehicles continuing to park in this location despite the signposted restrictions. It has also been observed that when these offences have occurred there has been suitable parking available on Park Street for shop patrons.

 

4.      Therefore it is proposed to convert the existing “No Parking” zone to a “No Stopping” zone in this location. In addition to this, it is proposed to install a mountable kerb island between the two driveways. This will prevent vehicles stopping in this location maintaining access to residential properties and improving safety in this location.

 

Financial Implications

 

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

 

Community Engagement

 

6.        The residents in the vicinity were consulted by letter drop. Submissions on the proposal were invited until the 26th October 2018. No objections were received.

Recommendation

That a 7m “Disabled Parking Only” zone be installed adjacent to No. 7 Kimberley Road, Hurstville as shown on plan TC1847 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the installation of a “Disabled Parking Only” zone on Kimberley Road, Hurstville.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received a request to investigate the installation of a “Disabled Parking Only” zone on the southern side of Kimberley Road, in order to provide access and availability of parking for residents with disability permits on Kimberley Road.

 

3.      Currently there are no parking restrictions on Kimberley Road.

 

4.      Following investigations by Council officers, it was noted that the property does have access to off-street parking, however due to accessibility requirements, location of existing garage and width of the existing driveway, the property is not appropriate to cater for people with disabilities. As such it is proposed to install a 7m “Disabled Parking Only” zone adjacent to No. 7 Kimberley Road. This is the equivalent to one car space and will provide a safe location for people with disabilities to park.

 

Financial Implications

 

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

 

Community Engagement

 

6.      The residents in the vicinity have been notified of the proposed “Disabled Parking Only” zone by letter. Residents were invited to comment until 26th October 2018. No objections were received.

Background

 

2.      Every year the Centre Manager of Westfield Hurstville requests permission to implement a number of traffic management measures on The Avenue, Park Road and Cross Street, Hurstville during the Christmas shopping period to ease traffic congestion around Westfield Shopping Centre.

 

3.      This year it is proposed to have the proposed traffic management measures in place from Thursday, 13 December to Monday, 31 December 2018 in order to reduce traffic congestion in Hurstville CBD during the 2018 Christmas period.

 

4.      The proposed traffic control measures include:

 

a)      “No Parking” restrictions on the eastern side of Park Road from Forest Road to Cross Street.

b)      “No Parking” restrictions on the western side of The Avenue from Cross Street to the service area (loading docks) of the shopping centre. Parking will be permitted on the eastern side of the street.

c)      RMS Accredited Traffic Controllers at entry and exit points of the shopping centre in Park Road and The Avenue.

 

5.      The proposed parking restrictions will provide exclusive traffic lanes for traffic accessing the shopping centre reducing the possible impact on through traffic movements on Park Road and The Avenue.

 

6.      Similar traffic measures were used in the past few years to successfully manage traffic during the previous Christmas periods.

 

7.      In addition to the parking restrictions requested by Westfield Management, every year the Police representative on the Traffic Advisory Committee had always requested additional “No Parking” restrictions to be installed along both sides of Cross Street between Park Road and The Avenue, Hurstville during the busiest time of the Christmas period in order to further reduce traffic congestion in Hurstville CBD during the pre and post-Christmas sales period.

 

8.      Accordingly, it is suggested to also restrict parking on both sides of Cross Street between Park Road and The Avenue, Hurstville from Friday, 21 December to Monday, 31 December 2018.

 

Financial Implications

Item:                   TAC240-18        Forest Road, Lugarno - Proposed Roundabout Modifications 

Author:              Coordinator Traffic & Transport

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That concrete islands be installed in Forest Road, on both approaches to the roundabout at the intersection with Wayne Avenue and Renway Avenue, as shown on plan U708 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of proposed concrete islands in Forest Road, Lugarno.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received a request from a local resident to investigate the issues of vehicles speeding though the roundabout at the intersection of Forest Road, Wayne Avenue and Renway Avenue in Lugarno.

 

3.      Upon investigation of this request, Council’s traffic section has determined that due to there being minimal deflection for vehicles on Forest Road on both approaches to the roundabout, vehicles were observed to drive though the roundabout at a significant speed.

 

Comments

 

4.      As a result of this investigation, a design has been completed for concrete islands in Forest Road on both approaches to the roundabout.  These would provide improved deflection for vehicles and assist in lowering vehicle speed in this location.

 

5.      The residents in the vicinity were notified by letter of the proposed installation of the islands.  The closing date for submissions was 19 October 2018.  No objections were received.

 

Financial Implications

 

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

Item:                   TAC241-18        Penshurst Public School - Temporary relocation to Peakhurst West Public School, traffic measures 

Author:              Senior Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

 

(a)     That 46m of the existing “No Stopping” restriction along the western side of Belmore Road, Peakhurst be converted to a “Bus Zone” to accommodate shuttle buses that will be transporting students from Penshurst to Peakhurst West.

 

(b)     That 60m of “P5 min, 8.00am-9.30am, 2.30pm-4.00pm, School Days” be installed along the school frontage on Ogilvy Street, Peakhurst, south of the existing kiss and ride zone.

 

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Traffic Committee’s consideration to introduce parking restrictions around Peakhurst West Public School to accommodate the relocation of Penshurst Public School students while their school is being developed in Arcadia Street, Penshurst.

 

Background

 

2.   To meet future demands due to growth in population forecasted in the Hurstville/Penshurst catchment, the Department of Education is re-developing Penshurst Public School located in Arcadia Street, Penshurst.

3.   Upon completion of the main works, Penshurst Public School proposes to accommodate 1,012 students, assisting in alleviating current enrolment pressures within the Hurstville Local Government Area (LGA).

 

4.   Penshurst Public School will contain high quality collaborative learning spaces and associated facilities, creating future focused education through new and sustainable buildings.

 

5.   While Penshurst Public School is being re-developed, it is proposed to temporarily relocate all the enrolled students to Peakhurst West Public School.

 

6.   In March 2018, the Traffic Committee considered and approved recommendations for various parking changes to be implemented in preparation of the relocation of Penshurst Public School to Peakhurst West Public School in Peakhurst.

 

 

These recommendations were as follows:

(a) THAT an additional 60m of “No Parking, 8.00am-9.30am – 2.30pm-4.00pm, Mon-Fri, School days” Parking restriction be installed along the eastern side of Ogilvy Street, Peakhurst within the school frontage.

 

(b) THAT an additional 40m “Bus Zone, Mon-Fri” School days be installed along the western side of Belmore Road directly outside the school frontage, replacing the existing “kiss and ride” zone.

 

(c)  THAT a 40m “No Parking, 8.00am-9.30am – 2.30pm-4.00pm, Mon-Fri, School days” be installed along the eastern side of Belmore Road, Peakhurst outside properties 82-86 Belmore Road, Peakhurst to accommodate parents dropping off and picking up their children.

 

Since the approval of the above measured recommendations, and the advertising of the development application, the department of education received many complaints in regards to the relocation of the students from Penshurst Public School to Peakhurst West Public School, which resulted in the Department of Education reconsidering their Traffic Impact Study and has since recommended revised traffic measures following consideration of the community feedback.

 

Alternatively the following Traffic Control measures are recommended for the proposed relocation of the school.

1.   Replace 46m of the existing “No Stopping” restriction along the western side of Belmore Road to a “Bus Zone” to accommodate shuttle buses that will be transporting students from Penshurst to Peakhurst West.

 

2.   That 60m of 5 minute parking, “P5 8.00am-9.30am, 2.30pm-4.00pm, School Days” be installed along the school frontage on Ogilvy Street, Peakhurst, south of the existing kiss and ride zone.

 

3.   Leave the kerbside parking outside the residents’ homes as unrestricted along the eastern side of Belmore Road.

 

Each school’s start and finish times will be staggered to help ease traffic congestion during pick up and drop off times in the vicinity of Peakhurst West Public School. Penshurst Public school commences at 9.00am and concludes at 3.00pm, while Peakhurst West Public School starts at 9.25am and concludes at 3.25pm.

 

Financial Implications

 

7.      Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facility Grant - $700

 

Risk Implications

8.      No risks identified.

 

 

Community Engagement

 

9.      The NSW Department of Education is undertaking resident consultation for this project.

Item:                   TAC243-18        Newman Street Penshurst - Pedestrian Crossing  

Author:              Senior Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

THAT a detailed design for a raised Pedestrian Crossing in Newman Street, west of Ocean Street, Penshurst be prepared and submitted to RMS for review and approval.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of a raised pedestrian crossing to be installed in Newman Street, west of Ocean Street, Penshurst.

Background

 

2.      Council has received numerous requests from residents as well as representation from Mark Coure MP, Member for Oatley, in regards to road safety concerns for children crossing at the intersection of Newman/Austral and Ocean Street, Penshurst.

3.      Concerns were raised in regards to conflict between children crossing Ocean Street, Austral Street and Newman Street and vehicles travelling along Ocean street as well as   proceeding through the “dog leg” configuration shown below from Newman to Austral street and vice versa.

 

4.      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 counts must be conducted twice in one day for one hour duration immediately before and after school hours. The measured flows for Pedestrians (P) and Vehicles (V) shall be equal to or greater than 30 and 200 respectively.

 

5.      Accordingly, traffic and vehicles counts were carried out at the three locations marked in red on the map above. The total pedestrian count for Ocean Street was the combination of pedestrians crossing both north of Newman St and south of Austral St.) The results were as follows:

7.      As can be seen from the above count, the warrants for Newman Street were established for the morning and afternoon time periods for both pedestrians and vehicles. Ocean Street warrants were established in the afternoon but fell below the requirement for pedestrians during the morning period. Austral Street did not meet the RMS warrants for pedestrians in either period due to the low pedestrian count.

 

8.      Upon site inspection it was clear that school children were making their way to and from the bus stops on either side of Ocean Street, north of Newman Street, for bus route 945.

 

9.      While the warrants for Ocean Street were close enough to warrant a pedestrian crossing it was observed that the desired location, (where most of the children were crossing) was at the Bus Stop.

 

10.    This means that if a pedestrian crossing was installed at this location, the 945 Bus Stops would have to be relocated, which in turn would result in pedestrians no longer wanting to cross at the warranted location because the bus stop has been shifted.

 

11.    For Newman Street, there is no reason why a pedestrian crossing cannot be installed in Newman Street, west of Ocean Street.

 

Financial Implications

 

12.    Additional non-budgeted funds of $80,000 from a suitable grant application or the 2019/2020 Capital Works Budget or the RMS Traffic Facilities Grant.

 

Community Engagement

 

13.    Community engagement will be conducted once a design is finalised and approved
