Agenda Items

Item:                   TAC046-19        Kyle Parade, Connells Point - Proposed 'Bus Zone' 

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That an 18m ‘Bus Zone’ with a statutory 10m “No Stopping” zone be installed on the western side of Kyle Parade, Connells Point at the intersection of Terry Street, at shown on plan TC1893 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the proposed ‘Bus Zone’ in Kyle Parade, Connells Point.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received representation from Punchbowl Bus Company to formalise the existing bus stop on the western side of Kyle Parade, Connells Point at the intersection of Terry Street.

 

3.      Following investigations, it was proposed to relocate and formalise the existing bus stop approximately 50m south of its current location to Kyle Parade, corner of Loch Maree Cres to provide a location for the bus to safely stop parallel to the kerb away from a 4-leg intersection.

 

Proposal

 

4.      As a result of the investigations and subsequent consultation process for the relocation outlined below, it is proposed to formalise the existing bus stop to an 18m ‘Bus Zone’ with an accompanying ‘No Stopping’ zone near Terry Street, eliminating vehicles parking within the designated distance for a bus stop.

 

Financial Implications

 

5.      Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $500.

 

Community Engagement

 

6.      Two separate consultations were conducted in regards to this proposal;

 

a.   2 Loch Maree Crescent was consulted in regards to the relocation and objected to the proposal noting that the added noise, especially during the early morning, will have a direct impact on their property.

 

b.   142 Terry Street was consulted with in regards to the formalisation of the existing Bus Stop. No objection was received.

 

7.      It is therefore recommended to proceed with the formalisation of the existing bus stop adjacent to number 142 Terry Street.

Item:                   TAC049-19        Hurstville Road, Oatley and Hillcrest Avenue, Hurstville Grove - Request to Formalise Existing Bus Stops 

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That the existing six ‘Bus Stops’ in Hurstville Road, Oatley and Hillcrest Avenue, Hurstville Grove be formalised into ‘Bus Zones’ or ‘Bus Zone, Mon – Sat’ with accompanying ‘No Stopping’ zones where applicable, as shown on plan TC1909 sheets 1 – 4 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the proposed formalisation of six existing Bus Stops to ‘Bus Zones’ in Hurstville Road, Oatley and Hillcrest Avenue, Hurstville Grove.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received representations from Punchbowl Buses requesting to formalise the existing Bus Stops in Hurstville Road, Oatley and Hillcrest Avenue, Hurstville Grove.

 

Proposal

 

3.      As these locations are sign posted as a ‘Bus Stop’ it is proposed to formalise these to a “Bus Zone” with “Monday – Saturday” restrictions at the relevant Bus Stops. The proposal will eliminate vehicles parking within the designated distance for a Bus Stop and result in a safer situation for all road users.

 

Financial Implications

 

4.      Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $3,600.

 

 

Community Engagement

 

5.      Affected residents in the proposed locations have been notified by letter of the proposed ‘Bus Zones’. The closing date for submissions was 25 March 2019. The following feedback were received:

 

a.   Sheet 2: Resident at number 136 Hillcrest Avenue has indicated that tradesmen that infrequently attend their residence will no longer be able to stop adjacent to their property.

 

6.      As this location was already signposted as a ‘Bus Stop’ parking in this location is currently not permitted. With the proposal, unrestricted parking will be permissible on Sundays. Furthermore, substantial amount of on-street parking is observed in the nearby side streets. On this basis the proposal has been deemed acceptable.

Item:                   TAC050-19        Hurstville Aquatic Centre - Proposed Bus Zone 

Author:              Coordinator Traffic & Transport

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That 30m of the existing “No Stopping” zone on the northern side of the Hurstville Aquatic Leisure Centre be converted to a “Bus Zone” as shown on plan TC1918 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of a proposed “Bus Zone” adjacent to the Hurstville Aquatic Leisure Centre.

 

Background

 

2.      A request has been received to investigate the movement of buses for the Hurstville Aquatic Leisure Centre.  Buses using the centre are predominately for school sport that utilise the Fitness Centre and Basketball Courts.

 

3.      Due to the arrangement of the site, the only location that buses can enter the Centre is by using the access road off King Georges Road.  Currently buses enter off King Georges Road and then reverse into the “No Parking” zone directly adjacent to the entrance to the Centre.  This reversing movement has been identified as unsafe due to the high number of people that use the entrance throughout the day.  However this is their only option due to the existing sign posted parking zones.

 

Comments

 

4.      An area identified as an option for safer bus parking is to the north of the Centre entrance in the one-way section of access road around the Centre.  This location is currently zoned as “No Stopping” that prevents vehicles using this area.

 

5.      Upon investigation, the width of the one-way road, between face of kerbs, was measured at 6m, that consists of a hatched area with a width of 2.6m and a through travel lane of 3.4m. 

 

6.      The conversion of 30m of the existing “No Stopping” zone to a “Bus Zone” would allow two buses to park whilst not inhibiting other vehicle movements.  The hatched area is proposed to be retained to enforce the “Bus Zone” location to prevent other drivers parking.

 

7.      Buses using this area could drop off/pick up students and then travel through the Centre carpark and exit the site onto Cambridge Street.

 

Financial Implications

 

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

Author:              Coordinator Traffic & Transport

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That the attached “Traffic Management Plan – Belgrave Street, Kogarah” dated 19/3/19 by Optimus Traffic Management Pty Ltd, for the Georges River Council Night Markets Event on Friday 3rd May 2019 from 10am to 12 midnight, be approved.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the temporary road closure of Belgrave Street, Kogarah between Post Office Lane and Kensington Street, for the Georges River Council Night Markets Event.

 

Background

 

2.      Optimums Traffic Management Pty Ltd on behalf of Council’s Events section, has lodged a “Traffic Management Plan – Belgrave Street, Kogarah” document for approval for the Georges River Council Night Markets Event to be occurring on Friday 3rd May 2019 from 10am to 12 midnight.

 

Comments

 

3.      The purpose of the “Traffic Management Plan” is to provide an operational overview of the traffic and transport management systems and processes required to be implemented for the Night Markets Event.

 

4.      The Traffic Control Plan (TCP #2699) that is attached to the TMP covers the required road closure due to:

 

·        Physical market stalls placement on the road

Item:                   TAC053-19        Mimosa Street, Oatley - Proposed "No Stopping" lines  

Author:              Coordinator Traffic & Transport

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That unbroken yellow “No Stopping” lines be painted at the intersection of Mimosa Street, Yarran Road and Waratah Street, Oatley as shown on plan TC1911 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed “No Stopping” zones at the intersection of Mimosa Street, Yarran Road and Waratah Street, Oatley.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received a request from a local resident to investigate the traffic movements at the intersection of intersection of Mimosa Street, Yarran Road and Waratah Street.

 

3.      Currently there are no signs to indicate the legal locations that drivers can park and therefore it has been observed that vehicles were parked in locations contrary to the requirements of the NSW Road Rules.

 

Comments

 

4.      Upon investigation of this request, it is proposed to install unbroken yellow lines to define the “No Stopping” zones on the corners of the intersection to increase the sight distance along the streets and lead to an improvement of safety in this location.

 

5.      It is also proposed to install the unbroken yellow line indicating “No Stopping” in Yarran Road 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.

 

6.      In accordance with the RMS “Delineation – Section 13 Pavement Markings” document, kerbside line marking is used to prohibit kerbside stopping for vehicles.  The line marking is a yellow longitudinal line, marked adjacent and parallel to the edge of the road.  A “No Stopping” line (C3) can be used to supplement the use of “No Stopping” signs, however the lines can also be installed without the use of signs. 

 

7.      The yellow unbroken “No Stopping” lines were deemed a more aesthetic solution in this location rather than “No Stopping” signs with posts due to the significant number that would be required to enforce the restrictions.

 

Financial Implications

 

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

 

Community Engagement

 

9.     Community engagement was conducted including: A letter and plan of the proposed changes were distributed to the nearby residents.  The closing date for submissions was 20 March 2019.  Council received one phone call in relation to the “No Stopping” zone and associated loss of parking. However as the “No Stopping” zone is only enforcing the existing NSW Road Rules that exist there is no additional loss of parking. The resident was advised of such and was satisfied with the explanation.

Item:                   TAC054-19        Roberts Avenue, Mortdale - Proposed Line Marking and Signage 

Author:              Coordinator Traffic & Transport

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

(a)     That the statutory 10m “No Stopping” signs be installed at the intersection of Roberts Avenue and Bowman Street.

(b)     That a “Give Way” sign and associated line marking be installed in Roberts Avenue at the intersections of Beatty Street and Bowman Street.

(c)     That a 100m edge line be installed 2.5m from the face of the southern kerb of Roberts Avenue, between Beatty Street and Bowman Street.

(d)     That the existing faded centre line markings in Roberts Avenue, between the pedestrian refuge near Bowman Street and the roundabout at Mortdale Plaza, be repainted, as shown on plan TC1919 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed line marking and signage in Roberts Avenue, Mortdale.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received a request from Mark Coure MP, Member for Oatley, on behalf of a local resident to investigate the turning movements at the intersection of Roberts Avenue and Bowman Street, Mortdale.

 

3.      Council’s Traffic Officers have conducted an investigation to determine current sight distance conditions at the intersection of Roberts Avenue and Bowman Street.

 

4.      The sight distance inspection was conducted using a 2 metre off-set from the kerb line, 1.1 metre driver eye height and 1.25 metre top of car. The inspection revealed that drivers have approximately 70 metres of sight distance for vehicles approaching from the east on Roberts Avenue.

 

5.      According to “Austroads Guide to Road Design – Part 3: Geometric Design”, the desirable minimum Stopping Sight Distance (SSD) required for a car travelling 50 km/hr with no grade corrections is 48 metres. Stopping Sight Distance is the distance to enable a normally alert driver, travelling at the design speed on wet pavement, to perceive, react and brake to a stop before reaching a hazard on the road ahead.

 

6.      The horizontal sight distance at the intersection of Roberts Avenue and Bowman Street satisfies the desirable minimum SSD requirement for urban roads.

 

7.      The investigation did however reveal that there is a lack of delineation line marking and “No Stopping” signs at the intersection that assist in vehicle turning movements.

Proposal

 

8.      As a result, Council is proposing the installation of the statutory 10m “No Stopping” signs at the intersection of Roberts Avenue and Bowman Street to prevent vehicles parking on the corners and increase the safety in this location.

 

9.      It is also recommended to install a “Give Way” sign and associated line marking in Roberts Avenue at Bowman Street as well as Beatty Street to further improve vehicle movements and safety at these intersections.

 

10.    Council is proposing to paint an edge line on the southern side of Roberts Avenue, between Bowman Street and Beatty Street, at a distance of 2.5m from the face of the kerb to improve the travel path of vehicles.  The submitted design has a parking lane width that complies with Section 2.2.2 of “Australian Standards 2890.5 – 1993 On – Street Parking” that requires an edge line to be at least 2.1m from the kerb line.  The design also complies with the Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) “Road Design Guide” that a minimum travel lane width of 3m be provided.

 

11.    The existing centre line markings in Roberts Avenue, between the pedestrian refuge near Bowman Street and the roundabout at Mortdale Plaza, are faded and are required to be repainted.

 

Financial Implications

 

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

(a)     That the landscaped island on the eastern side of St Elmo Parade, Kingsgrove at the raised threshold be removed.

(b)     That a 20m “Give Way” line and associated signage be installed at the intersection of St Elmo Parade and Stoney Creek Road.

(c)     That a 20m BB Centreline be installed on St Elmo Parade between Stoney Creek Road and the existing raised threshold. Also that a 10m BB centreline be installed on St Elmo Parade on the northern side of raised threshold.

(d)     That a 10m unbroken lane line (L3) be installed on St Elmo Parade at the intersection of Stoney Creek Road with directional arrows.

(e)     That the existing “No Stopping” zone on the eastern side of St Elmo Parade, be extended 10m north, as shown on plan TC1921 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committees consideration for the proposal removal of the landscaped island on St Elmo Parade, Kingsgrove and for the proposed installation of linemarking in this location.

 

Background

 

2.      A request was received from the Principal of Arkana College to investigate the intersection of St Elmo Parade and Stoney Creek Road, with the view of reducing congestion during the afternoon peak pick-up period.

 

3.      Currently the school’s pick-up and drop-off area operates in St Elmo Parade, north of the existing raised threshold. South of the raised threshold is signposted as a “No Stopping” zone.

 

4.      Following investigations by Council officers, it was observed that when vehicles require to turn right from St Elmo Parade onto Stoney Creek Road, due to the high traffic volumes on Stoney Creek Road, traffic was queuing back past the raised threshold and into the existing pick-up and drop-off zone.

 

5.      It is therefore proposed to remove the existing landscaped island on the eastern side of St Elmo Parade and delineate the intersection with linemarking. This will increase the capacity of the intersection during peak periods. It will also allow for vehicles to turn left onto Stoney Creek Road from St Elmo Parade, reducing overall queue lengths at the intersection. The reduction in queue and improved traffic flow will increase safety and efficiency of the existing pick-up and drop-off zone on St Elmo Parade.

 

6.      The landscaped island on the western side of the raised threshold is proposed to be retained as this would deter people from using the threshold as a crossing location.

 

Financial Implications

 

7.      Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facilities Grant – Approximately $7,000.

Recommendation

That the existing 10m “No Parking” zone on the eastern side of O’Keefes Lane, Kogarah, be converted to “No Parking, Emergency Vehicles Excepted” as shown on plan TC1920 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the conversion of the existing “No Parking” zone on O’Keefes Lane, Kogarah.

Recommendation

That 6m of the existing “2P, 6am-6pm, Mon-Fri, Permit Holders Excepted Area 2” zone on the eastern side of English Lane, Kogarah, adjacent to No. 16 Park Street, be converted to “No Parking”, as shown on plan TC1923 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committees consideration of the proposed “No Parking” zone on English Lane, Kogarah.

 

Background

 

2.      A request was received by Chris Minns MP, Member for Kogarah, on behalf of the resident at No. 16 Park Street, Kogarah, requesting a “No Parking” zone to be installed across the resident’s side gate, to allow for access to and from the property.

 

3.      Currently there is an 18m “2P, 6am-6pm, Mon-Fri, Permit Holders Excepted Area 2” zone on English Lane.

 

4.      Following investigations it was observed that vehicles are parking in the “2P” zone which prevents the resident from opening their gated access to their property, due to the proximity of the kerb to the building boundary.

 

5.      It is therefore proposed to install a 6m “No Parking” zone in this location, which will prevent vehicles parking in this location, maintaining safe access to and from the property.

 

Financial Implications

 

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

Item:                   TAC059-19        Car Share - Creating a policy for Georges River Council LGA 

Author:              Senior Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

(a)       THAT Georges River Council creates a car share parking policy to operate in Georges River Local Government Area.

(b)       THAT the car share parking policy be brought back to a future Traffic Committee meeting for the committee to review and comment before a final version is adopted by Council.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.         This report seeks the Traffic Committee’s consideration and feedback in regards to creating a car share parking policy to be implemented in Georges River Council Local Government Area.

 

Background

 

2.         Council’s traffic section has been receiving requests from residents for installing dedicated car share parking spaces in local public roads and car parks.

 

3.         Georges River Council currently does not have a car sharing parking scheme in place or a policy to support the scheme. 

 

4.         In light of the increased demand for on street parking and the increased development in Council’s strategic centres, it is considered appropriate to develop a car share parking policy tailored for Georges River Council demographic needs and strategic locations.

 

5.         RMS has a technical direction to provide guidelines principles for implementing on-street car share parking facilities for fixed space car share parking (refer attached).

 

6.         The Technical direction addresses the two options available when implementing a car share scheme. These options are as follows;

 

(a) Fixed space – vehicle is picked up from and returned to the same designated car space. Parking is administered by signage.

 

(b) Non-fixed space – operates without designated parking spaces. Depending on the terms and conditions of the scheme, vehicles may have to be returned to a designated neighbourhood or they may be used for one way journeys. Parking is administered within a permit parking scheme.

 

7.         As part of the creation of the parking policy it is recommended that prominent car share companies be approached by Council requesting their feedback in regards to the best way to implement the car share scheme to help achieve customer satisfaction for Council’s residents and rate payers.

 

Financial Implications

 

8.         No budget impact for this report.

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That the “Disabled Parking” zone in Roberts Avenue, west of Barr Street, outside property No. 11 Roberts Avenue, Mortdale be removed.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.         This report seeks the committee’s consideration for the removal of a disabled parking space in Roberts Avenue, Mortdale, outside number 11.

 

Background

 

2.         In June 2017 the Traffic Advisory Committee considered a request from a resident with mobility difficulties living along Roberts Avenue Mortdale to install a disabled parking space near her home as she was renting and did not have access to an off street parking space.

 

3.         Accordingly the Committee recommended and Council approved in June 2017

 

 

a.      “That a disabled parking space be installed in Roberts Avenue west of Barr Street outside property no 11 Roberts Avenue, Mortdale.

b.      That the disabled parking space be reviewed annually to determine if it is still required.”

 

4.         The disabled parking space was installed shortly afterwards and the space was reviewed annually as recommended.

 

5.         This year’s review revealed that the resident who had requested the disabled parking space has moved out of the area and she confirmed with Council’s Traffic Section that the disabled parking space is no longer required.

 

6.         Furthermore residents living near the disabled parking space have written to Council advising of their observation that the space had not been used for many weeks and requested that Council remove the restriction.

 

7.          

 

Financial Implications

 

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

 

Community Engagement

 

9.         Resident confirmed no longer needs the disabled space and residents in the vicinity of the space are requesting the space be removed.

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

(a)     That a 4m “No Parking, Motorcycles Excepted” zone be installed on the eastern side of Carysfort Street, Hurstville, adjacent to houses 10a and 12.

(b)     That the statutory 10m “No Stopping” zone be sign posted on both sides of Australia Avenue, at the corners of Carysfort Street, as shown on plan TC1917 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the proposed parking restrictions in Carysfort Street, Hurstville.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received a request from a local resident to consider implementing signage to prevent vehicles obstructing the driveways adjacent to number 10A – 12 Carysfort Street, Hurstville.

 

3.      Following investigation by Council Engineers, it was found that the kerb length between the two driveways is less than 5.5m and parked vehicles were obstructing access to the properties.

 

Proposal

 

4.      It is therefore proposed to install a ‘No Parking, Motorcycles Excepted’ zone to indicate that cars cannot park in this location and improve vehicle access to the properties.

 

5.      Furthermore, during the investigations it was found that vehicles were often parking too close to the intersection of Carysfort Street and Australia Avenue. Therefore, it is also proposed to sign post this location as a “No Stopping” zone, enforcing statutory requirements.

 

Financial Implications

 

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

 

Community Engagement

 

7.      Residents in the vicinity have been notified by letter of the proposed parking restrictions. The closing date for submissions was 26 March 2019. No objections were received.

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the proposed line markings in Kitchener Street, Oatley.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received representation from a local resident to investigate Kitchener Street, Oatley, in particular highlighting motorists failing to acknowledge the two-way nature of the Street.

 

3.      For information, the majority of Kitchener Street is separated by a median strip with residents only access to the northern section.  Both sections of the street operate as two-way, independent of each section.

 

Proposal

 

4.      Following investigations, it is proposed to install bi-directional line marking (arrows) on the southern section of Kitchener Street to accompany the existing signage. The proposal will further enforce the two-way nature of this section of the street.

 

Financial Implications

Author:              Coordinator Traffic & Transport

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

(a)     That the existing “Mail Zone” on the eastern side of Penshurst Street, be converted to a “1/4P, 8:30am – 5pm Mon – Fri, 8.30am – 12.30pm Sat” zone and “Mail Zone, 5pm – 7pm Mon – Fri”. 

(b)     That the existing “1/2P, 8:30am – 6pm Mon – Fri, 8.30am – 12.30pm Sat” zone on the eastern side of Penshurst Street be converted to “1/4P, 8:30am – 6pm Mon – Fri, 8.30am – 12.30pm Sat” zone, as shown on plan TC1905 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed timed parking changes in Penshurst Street, Beverly Hills.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received a request from a local business owner to investigate the possibility of modifying the timed parking spaces on the western side of Penshurst Street to increase the parking turnover near the businesses and improve the parking availability for customers.

 

3.      Recent changes to parking on Stoney Creek Road by the RMS as part of their “Clearways” program resulted in parking loss for businesses along Stoney Creek Road.  Changes were made to the parking zones in Penshurst Street as a result of this parking loss, however the businesses have requested further modifications.

 

Comments

 

4.      Upon investigation of this request, it is proposed to convert the existing “Mail Zone” to a “1/4P, 8:30am – 5pm Mon – Fri, 8.30am – 12.30pm Sat” zone and “Mail Zone, 5pm – 7pm Mon – Fri”.  It is proposed to convert the “1/2P” zone to a “1/4P” zone that would improve parking turnover along Penshurst Street.

 

5.      Council has been advised that the “Mail Zone” is utilised after 5pm during the week and under the NSW Road Rules drivers are not permitted to stop in this zone.  Therefore this area would be better utilised with other timed restrictions.

 

6.      Parking changes were also proposed further along Penshurst Street adjacent to number 165, however as this building is currently vacant, Council is not proceeding with changes in this location until the building is occupied and further consultation can be conducted.

 

 

 

Financial Implications

 

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

 

Community Engagement

 

8.   Community engagement was conducted including: A letter and plan of the proposed changes were distributed to the nearby businesses.  The closing date for submissions was 20 March 2019.  Council received a small number of phones calls to discuss the proposal however no objections were received.
