Agenda Items

Item:                   TAC001-19        Connells Point Road, Connells Point - Traffic Accident 

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That the report be received and noted by the Traffic Advisory Committee.

 

Executive Summary

1.      This report seeks the Committees consideration of recent events on Connells Point Road, Connells Point.

 

Background

2.      Council have received requests from Councillor Nancy Liu and residents of Connells Point Road, Connells Point, for the Traffic Advisory Committee to consider the installation of additional traffic calming devices on Connells Point Road.

 

3.      On 2 January 2019 at approximately 1.35pm a Toyota Corolla travelling northbound on Connells Point Road, between Terry Street and Queens Road, crossed onto the opposite side of the road. The vehicle collided into a parked BMW, before flipping onto its side outside of 246 Connells Point Road. The front seat passenger, 19, suffered head and internal injuries and was transported to St George Hospital. The driver, 18, escaped injury and was taken for mandatory blood and urine testing. A black Mercedes allegedly involved, left the scene. The drivers of both vehicles have subsequently been charged by Police.

 

4.      In November 2016, the Traffic Advisory Committee approved the following;

a.      That a 15m dividing barrier line with yellow Raised Reflective Pavement Markers (RRPM’s) be installed in Terry Street, Connells Point at the intersection with Connells Point Road.

b.      That six rubber rumble bars (RUM-300) be installed at 0.7m intervals on Terry Street at the intersection with Connells Point Road.

c.       That a “No Stopping” zone be installed on the southern side of Terry Street, 25m from the intersection with Connells Point Road, as shown on the plan TC1567 attached to the report.

The basis of the recommendation was due to the number of tyre (burnout) marks at the intersection as well as the number of vehicles cutting across the centreline when navigating the corner. The proposal was to deter the ‘hooning’ behaviour and enforce turning movements at this intersection.

 

5.      In December 2016, the Traffic Advisory Committee approved the following;

a.      That an edge line and centreline with Raised Reflective Pavement Markers (RRPM’s) be painted in Connells Point Road, near the intersection with Queens Road.

b.      That the existing centreline in Connells Point Road, south of Queens Road, be realigned and rumble bars installed on the centreline and edge line.

c.       That a “No Stopping” zone be installed on the southern corner of Connells Point Road, as shown on plan TC1569 attached to the report.

The basis of the recommendation was that vehicles had been observed to travel through the intersection at high speed, creating a hazard. RMS had indicated at this time there had only been one (1) recorded crash near this intersection. The treatment was designed to prevent vehicles cutting across the intersection on the southern edge of the intersection to improve the vehicle travel paths.

 

6.      In July 2018, the Traffic Advisory Committee approved the following;

a.      That a 185m S1 dividing (separation) line be installed on Connells Point Road, between Queens Road and Cowper Place, Connells Point, as shown on the plan TC1761 attached to the report.

The basis of the recommendation was from a traffic counter places outside of 255 Connells Point Road from 20th March 2018 to the 28th March 2018 showed that while the 85th percentile speed was within the acceptable limits for a local road it was observed that some vehicles were travelling in the middle of the carriageway.

 

7.      A traffic counter was placed adjacent to 255 Connells Point Road (adjacent the site of the accident) from 20 March 2018 to 28 March 2018. The 85th percentile of the counter was 59km/h. The higher speeds were recorded for vehicles travelling southbound, down the hill. At the Traffic Advisory Committee Meeting in June this was raised informally where the recommendation for the subsequent July meeting was proposed. The area was highlighted with St George Local Area Police Command and the information was passed onto the Highway Patrol for their enforcement.

 

8.      There was also a traffic counter placed adjacent to 224 Connells Point Road from 3 August 2015 to 17 August 2015. The 85th percentile of the counter was 55km/h.

 

9.      There are no recorded traffic accidents recorded along Connells Point Road, between Queens Road and Terry Street for the period of January 2010 and June 2018. This is the most recent data available to Council.

 

Financial Implications

10.    No budget impact for this report.

4.      As a result of this request, a line marking design has been undertaken in accordance with the requirements of the "Australian Standards 2890.5 - 1993, On-Street Parking" document.  Signage to indicate “Park In Bays Only” is also proposed to enforce the legal parking requirements once the lines are installed.

 

5.      During the investigation it was also observed that there is a red mail box currently located in Kyle Parade adjacent to the shops.  In accordance with the NSW Road Rules, it is illegal for a vehicle to stop within 3m of a mail box unless they are dropping off passengers or mail.  As a result, it is also proposed to relocate the mail box into Merriman Street and signpost as “No Parking, Australia Post Vehicles Excepted”.  This would increase the legal parking spaces adjacent to the shops.

 

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 were distributed to the nearby residents and businesses. The closing date for submissions was 18 January 2019. No objections to the line marking or signage was received, however one objection was received in regards to the relocation of the mail box into Merriman Street.  As the mail box is proposed to be relocated approximately 40m, this additional distance is deemed acceptable.

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That curve and speed advisory signs be installed in Romilly Street and Thurlow Street, Riverwood as shown on plan TC1883 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed installation of speed advisory signs in Romilly Street and Thurlow Street, Riverwood.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received a request from Mark Coure MP, Member for Oatley, on behalf of local residents to consider the installation of speed humps in Romilly Street near the curve at Thurlow Street, Riverwood. 

 

3.      In May 2018, Council organised the installation of a traffic counter in Romilly Street approximately 50m to the south of the bend at the intersection with Thurlow Street.  The result for the 85th percentile speed on approach to the bend (northbound) was determined to be 53km/h with the southbound vehicles at 50km/h.  These are deemed acceptable for a local street and do not warrant the installation of speed humps.

 

4.      Council’s Traffic Engineers have also assessed the Roads and Maritime Service’s (RMS) crash database for a 5 year period between January 2013 and December 2017. The crash data during this period indicates that there have been no reported crashes on Romilly Street between Thurlow Street and Talbot Street.

 

Proposal

 

5.      Council has however taken into consideration the issues raised by the residents and as a result, Council is proposing the installation of advance curve warning signs with advisory speed signs to advise drivers of the approaching bend of Romilly Street to assist in lowering vehicle speed though this area.

 

6.      Council conducted a Ball Bank Test on approach to the bend from both directions to determine what curve and speed advisory signs should be installed in Romilly Street and Thurlow Street.

 

7.      As a result of the Ball Bank Test, it is proposed to install 35km/h speed advisory signs in Romilly Street and Thurlow Street with supplementary staggered side roads on curve signs.  The installation of the speed advisory signs would assist in influencing driver behaviour in these areas.

 

Financial Implications

 

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

Item:                   TAC013-19        Oatley Parade, Oatley - Proposed Roundabout at River Road Intersection 

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 a proposed roundabout at the intersection of Oatley Parade and River Road, Oatley.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received a request from Mark Coure MP, Member for Oatley, on behalf of local residents to consider the installation of a roundabout at the intersection of Oatley Parade and River Road, Oatley. 

 

3.      In 2009, Council, in accordance with the requirements of the NSW Roads and Maritime Service (RMS), made changes at the intersection of Oatley Parade and River Road to improve safety for pedestrians crossing. The RMS required that the vehicle path be reduced to one lane each way at the pedestrian crossing on River Road.

 

4.      This change improved safety for pedestrians, however, it also increased waiting times for vehicles making a right turn from River Road onto Oatley Parade.

 

5.      The Roads and Maritime Service’s (RMS) crash database was reviewed for a 5 year period between July 2013 and December 2017 at this intersection. There have been no recorded turning crashes at the subject intersection within this period.  

 

6.      The criteria for the Blackspot Program is a minimum 3 injury crashes over the 5 year period.  The RMS crash data at the intersection of Oatley Parade and River Road indicates that the location is not eligible for Council to submit a request for funding under the Federal Government Black Spot Program for a roundabout to be constructed.

 

Comments

 

7.      The former Kogarah Council Traffic Advisory Committee previously investigated the proposal for a roundabout at the intersection of River Road and Oatley Parade. The Committee found that although a roundabout is capable of being installed at the intersection, the location of the pedestrian crossings would cause problems for traffic using it, particularly in the mornings and afternoons when there are significant numbers of students from the nearby Oatley College using the crossings travelling to and from the College and Oatley Train Station.

 

8.      A design has been completed that includes the removal of the existing pedestrian crossing on Oatley Parade and its relocation approximately 30m towards the north.  This would reduce the potential for traffic queues to extend over the crossing and would also encourage drivers to focus on pedestrians rather than the approaching roundabout.

 

9.      The relocation of the pedestrian crossing would require the removal of a mature tree in Oatley Memorial Gardens, as well as the construction of stairs, an associated footpath and pedestrian fence to provide disabled access to the new crossing. 

 

10.    The installation of the roundabout and relocation of the crossing would result in the following parking changes:

 

·    Loss of four (4) unrestricted parking spaces on the eastern side of Oatley Parade adjacent to Oatley Memorial Park.

 

·    Loss of two (2) unrestricted parking spaces on the western side of Oatley Parade adjacent to residential unit block.

 

·    Loss of three (3) “2P” parking spaces on the eastern side of Oatley Parade adjacent to Oatley Memorial Park.

 

·    Loss of one (1) “No Parking” space on the western side of Oatley Parade adjacent to Oatley Train Station.

 

·    Loss of six (6) “No Parking” spaces within the circular area on the eastern side of Oatley Parade adjacent to Oatley Memorial Park. Inspections indicated that these spaces are rarely utilised.

 

11.    The alternative to the roundabout design would be to modify the existing line marking at the intersection to provide additional delineation markings for drivers and improve the turning movements at the intersection.  A concept line marking plan is attached to the report.

 

Financial Implications

 

12.    Additional non-budgeted funds of $210,000 from a suitable grants application or the 2019/2020 Capital Works Budget.

 

Community Engagement

 

13. Community engagement will be conducted including: Residents in this vicinity will be consulted by letter box drop if the proposal is supported by the Traffic Advisory Committee and Council.

Item:                   TAC014-19        East Street, Blakehurst - Traffic Investigations 

Author:              Coordinator Traffic & Transport

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

(a)     That the report on the traffic investigations in Blakehurst be received and noted.

(b)     That the faded line markings at the intersection of East Street and Oberon Street be repainted.

(c)     That a “Give Way” sign and associated line marking be installed in Taro Street at its intersection with Church Street, as shown on plan TC1885 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the traffic investigations in the Blakehurst area.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received correspondence from a local resident to investigate the traffic issues in the Blakehurst area, specifically around East Street.

 

3.      The requests involve changing the priority at the intersection of East Street and Taro Street; installation of a roundabout at the intersection of East and Oberon Street as well as the intersection of Church Street and Hatfield Street; and the installation of traffic calming devices at the intersection of Taro Street and Church Street.

 

Investigations

 

East Street and Taro Street

 

4.      This intersection currently requires drivers on Taro Street to “Give Way” to vehicles travelling on East Street.  This has been in place since at least 1982 and operates at a Level of Service A at all times throughout the day.  Request was to change the priority in this location. In October 2018 Council repainted the faded line marking at the intersection.  East Street and Taro Street have a width of approximately 7.3m between kerbs.

 

5.      In November 2018 Council conducted a traffic study in East Street, between Taro Street and Oberon Street, to ascertain the speed and volume of vehicles using the street.  A previous study had been conducted in this section by Council in February 2007.  The results of these studies are shown in the table below:

DATE

DAILY TRAFFIC VOLUME

85TH PERCENTILE SPEED

November 2018

597

49 km/h

February 2007

647

46 km/h

 

6.      Council has also assessed the Roads and Maritime Service’s (RMS) crash database for a 5 year period between January 2013 and December 2017 at this intersection.  There has been one recorded crash that occurred in September 2013 with no injuries.

 

7.      Based on the recorded 85th percentile speed being below the posted speed limit of 50km/h and the low crash history at the intersection, reversing the priority to require drivers on East Street to “Give Way” to traffic on Taro Road may cause confusion for drivers who have used this intersection for many years and could lead to a reduction in safety and potential for an increase in crashes and for this reason it is not supported.

 

East Street and Oberon Street

 

8.      This intersection currently requires drivers on Oberon Street to “STOP” for vehicles travelling on East Street.  This priority has been in place since at least 1982 and operates at a Level of Service A at all times throughout the day.  The section of East Street, north of Oberon Street, has an up-grade of approximately 16%. Request was to install a roundabout in this location. 

 

9.      Council has assessed the Roads and Maritime Service’s (RMS) crash database for a 5 year period between January 2013 and December 2017 at this intersection.  There have been no recorded crashes at the intersection.

 

10.    Due to the narrowness of the East Street and Oberon Street intersection, the steep up-grade of East Street on approach to Oberon Street, no crash history and small traffic volumes, a roundabout in this location is not supported.

 

11.    Council will however repaint the faded line marking at this intersection to increase the safety.

 

Church Street and Hatfield Street

 

12.    This intersection currently requires drivers on Hatfield Street to “Give Way” to vehicles travelling on Church Street.  This priority has been in place since at least 1982 and operates at a Level of Service A at all times throughout the day.  The existing line marking in this location was repainted in 2017.  Request is to install a roundabout in this location.

 

13.    Council has assessed the Roads and Maritime Service’s (RMS) crash database for a 5 year period between January 2013 and December 2017 at this intersection.  There have been no recorded crashes at the intersection.

 

14.    A recent traffic count conducted in Church Street and Hatfield Street, indicated a daily vehicle volume of 681 and 1,171 accordingly.  These volumes are within acceptable limits for local roads.

 

15.    Accordingly, the installation of a roundabout is not warranted at this intersection.

 

Church Street and Taro Street

 

16.    This is a T-intersection and currently requires drivers on Taro Street to “Give Way” to vehicles travelling on Church Street. It currently operates at a Level of Service A at all times throughout the day. There are no delineation lines at this intersection to advise the priority. 

 

17.    Council has assessed the Roads and Maritime Service’s (RMS) crash database for a 5 year period between January 2013 and December 2017 at this intersection.  There have been no recorded crashes at the intersection.

 

18.    Accordingly, the installation of a roundabout is not warranted at this intersection. 

 

19.    Council will however install “Give Way” line marking and signage in Taro Street to improve vehicle movements at the intersection, as shown on plan TC1885 attached to the report.

 

Financial Implications

 

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

Recommendation

That a 60m double centreline be installed along Dame Mary Gilmore Road, Oatley, between Park Avenue and Oatley Park Avenue, as per the plan attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the installation of a double centreline on Dame Mary Gilmore, Oatley.

 

Background

2.      Council received a request from Roads and Maritime Services (RMS), to investigate the suitability of a BB centreline along Dame Mary Gilmore Road to prevent vehicles making U-turns when exiting the newly constructed off-street parking bays adjacent to Oatley West Public School.

3.      Following inspections by Council officers it is proposed to install a 60m BB Centreline on Dame Mary Gilmore Road between Park Avenue and Oatley Park Avenue. This will prevent vehicles making U-turns in this location, improving safety and easing congestion during school pick-up and drop-off periods.

4.      In addition to the installation of new line marking, RMS will be relocating the exiting school zone signage, to the intersection of Park Avenue and Dame Mary Gilmore Road.

Recommendation

(a)     That a 7m “Disabled Parking Only” zone be installed adjacent to No. 8 Woodville Street, Hurstville as shown on plan TC1888 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

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

 

Background

2.      Council has received a request from MP Mark Coure, Member for Oately, on behalf of a resident, requesting Council investigate the suitability of a “Disabled Parking Only” zone on Woodville Street, near to Service NSW.

3.      Currently there are existing “1P, 8.30am-6pm, Mon-Fri, 3.30am-12.30pm, Sat” zones on Woodville Street.

4.      Following investigations by Council officers, it was found that Service NSW does not have any off-street parking facilities. Service NSW provides a range of services, including health and wellbeing services such as disability support and away from home dialysis. It is therefore proposed to install a 7m “Disabled Parking Only” zone adjacent to 8 Woodville Street. This is the equivalent of one car space and will provide a safe location for people with disabilities to park to access this service.

 

Financial Implications

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

Recommendation

(a)     THAT the existing “Give Way” restriction in Cook Lane, south of Cook Street, Mortdale be upgraded to a “STOP” restriction as shown in attached plan TC1886

 

Executive Summary

 

1.   This report seeks the Traffic Committee’s approval to upgrade the existing “Give Way” restriction in Cook Lane, south of Cook Street, Mortdale to “STOP” restriction.

 

Background

 

2.   Council received representation from a resident advising of road safety concerns at the intersection of Cook Street and Cook Lane, Mortdale.

3.   The resident advised that pedestrians walking eastbound along Cook Street, Mortdale are in danger of not being seen by vehicles travelling northbound along Cook Lane, Mortdale, due to the building line along the western side of the intersection of Cook Lane and Cook Street.

4.   The resident has requested that a speed hump be installed to deter speeding in cook laneway.

 

5.   To ascertain road safety concerns raised by the resident, the Roads and Maritime Service accident data were reviewed for the 5-year period between July 2013 and June 2018 and no accidents were recorded at the intersection of Cook Street and Cook Lane, Mortdale.

 

6.   Furthermore traffic counts were installed in Cook Lane, Mortdale south of Cook Street for a one week period from 7/12/2018 to 13/12/2018. The 85% speed was measured to be 25km/h, Accordingly the installation of a speed hump is not warranted.

 

7.   A site inspection revealed that there is an existing Give Way restriction on Cook Lane south of Cook Street.  To improve the sight distance for vehicles travelling northbound along Cook Lane it is recommended that the Give Way restriction be upgraded to a STOP restriction and be located as close as possible to the building line.

 

8.   Rule 67 of the Road Rules requires that a driver must stop as near as practicable to, but before reaching a stop line.

 

9.   Accordingly drivers must stop as indicated in Rule 67 at the location shown in plan TC 1886 attached.

 

 

 

Financial Implications

 

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

 

Community Engagement

 

11. Community engagement is not required.
