Item:                   TAC166-19        Belmore Road, Peakhurst - Proposed Line Marking 

Author:              Coordinator Traffic & Transport

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

(a)     That “Keep Clear” road markings be painted in Belmore Road at its intersection with Stewart Avenue.

(b)     That 3 additional “Right Turn” arrows be painted on Belmore Road near Stewart Avenue, as shown on plan TC2007 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed line marking in Belmore Road, Peakhurst.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received representation from MP Mark Coure Member for Oatley, on behalf of a constituent to investigate the intersection of Stewart Avenue and Belmore Road, Peakhurst, in particular highlighting vehicles queuing across the intersection.

 

3.      As a result of this request, a report was presented at the 7 May 2019 meeting of the Traffic Advisory Committee where the members approved the following recommendations:

 

a)      That a 15m Give-Way Holding Line (TB & TB1) and associated signage be installed in Stewart Avenue, Peakhurst at the intersection of Belmore Road.

 

b)      That a ‘Do Not Queue Across Intersection’ sign be installed on the eastern side of Belmore Road south of Stewart Avenue as shown on plan TC1930 attached to the report.

 

4.      The additional Do Not Queue Across Intersection’ sign was installed on Belmore Road in mid-June 2019.

 

5.      Council has recently been contacted by a resident of Stewart Avenue to advise that drivers are continuing to ignore the Do Not Queue Across Intersection’ signs at the intersection.  As a result residents are encountering issues being able to turn right out of the street to head towards Riverwood due to vehicles queued from the signals.

 

6.      Another resident has also requested additional “Right Turn” arrows in Belmore Road, north of Henry Lawson Drive to advise drivers of the turn requirements at the signals.

 

 

 

 

Proposal

 

7.      As a result, Council is proposing the installation of “Keep Clear” road markings in Belmore Road at the intersection with Stewart Avenue to improve the ability of vehicles to turn right out of the street.  The “Keep Clear” markings are to be painted in accordance with the requirements of the RMS “Delineation – Section 9 – Messages on Pavements” document. 

 

8.      This would also improve traffic flow along Belmore Road for northbound vehicles as vehicles turning right into Stewart Avenue would not block through traffic. Parking restrictions on the western side of Belmore Road opposite Stewart Avenue are not proposed at this stage.

 

9.      Council is also proposing the installation of 3 additional “Right Turn” arrows on Belmore Road to advise drivers that the central lane is required to turn right at the Henry Lawson Drive intersection.

 

Financial Implications

 

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

3.      Punchbowl Bus Company has requested the installation of a “Bus Zone” on Greenacre Road to operate during the morning and afternoon school peak periods.

 

4.      The Bus Company has advised that the provision of bus services for the new school is currently being discussed with Transport for NSW and requires approval of the “Bus Zone” through the Traffic Advisory Committee.

 

5.      Punchbowl Bus Company has indicated that they do not support entering the school grounds where parents will be dropping off and picking up students.

 

Proposal

 

6.      As a result of this request, Council is proposing the installation of a 20m “Bus Zone, 8am – 9.30am, 2.30pm – 4pm, School Days” on the western side of Greenacre Road, opposite Mimosa Street, to allow the bus service to operate in close proximity to the school during the school peak periods.

 

7.      It is proposed to retain 12m (2 car spaces) of unrestricted street parking adjacent to No. 37 Greenacre Road which is a residential property.

 

8.      The properties at No.’s 31 – 35 Greenacre Road are proposed to be demolished and replaced with turf, fencing and landscaping and will be used by the school students during standard school hours as an outdoor recreation area.

Item:                   TAC168-19        Boundary Road, Mortdale - Proposed Timed Parking Zone 

Author:              Coordinator Traffic & Transport

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That a 35m “2P, 8am – 4pm, Mon – Fri” zone be installed on the eastern side of Boundary Road, between Treloar Avenue and Sparkes Avenue, Mortdale as shown on plan TC2010 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed timed parking zone in Boundary Road, Mortdale.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received a request to investigate the possibility of converting the currently untimed parking spaces on the eastern side of Boundary Road, between Treloar Avenue and Sparkes Avenue, to a timed parking zone. 

 

3.      As this area is currently unrestricted parking and in close proximity to the Mortdale industrial area, vehicles have been observed to park for extended periods with no vehicle turnover occurring in this location.

 

Proposal

 

4.      Upon investigation of this request, it is proposed to convert 35m of unrestricted car parking spaces on the eastern side of Boundary Road, to a “2P, 8am – 4pm, Mon – Fri” zone. This would increase the vehicle turnover along the street and prevent vehicles parking continuously throughout the week.

 

5.      Residents have been advised through the consultation process that they would not be exempt from the proposed parking restrictions and they will be required to relocate their vehicle every 2 hours during the week between 8am and 4pm.

 

6.      Parking is proposed to remain unrestricted on weekends.

 

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 residents and businesses.  The closing date for submissions was 16 September 2019. No objections were received.

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the temporary road closures in Carlton and Kogarah for Council’s “White Ribbon Walk” event.

Item:                   TAC170-19        Railway Parade, Kogarah - Proposed "1/2P" zone 

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That a 31m “1/2P, 8.30am-6pm, Mon-Fri, 8.30am-12.30pm, Sat” zone be installed on the southern side of Railway Parade, Kogarah as shown on plan TC2011 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for a “1/2P” zone to be installed on Railway Parade adjacent to No.’s 218 – 222 Railway Parade, Kogarah.

 

Background

 

2.      Traffic Committee report TAC 175-17 was approved by Council in December 2017 with the following recommendations;

 

a.   “That a 21m “Works Zone, 7am-5pm, Mon-Sat” be installed on the southern side of Railway Parade, adjacent to 218-222 Railway Parade, Kogarah, for a period of 58 weeks commencing on 15th January 2018, as shown on plan TC1661 attached to the report

 

b.   That the parking be reviewed after the completion of the “Works Zone” period.”

 

3.      The development at No.’s 218 – 222 Railway Parade has now been completed. The development comprises of 45 residential apartments with ground floor commercial/retail and basement carpark.

 

4.      The existing property had a “No Stopping” zone due to site line requirements of a pull-in, pick-up and drop-off zone within the existing site. This zone is no longer required for the new building.

 

5.      It is therefore proposed to install a 31m “1/2P, 8.30am – 6pm, Mon – Fri, 8.30am – 12.30pm, Sat” zone on the southern side of Railway Parade, Kogarah. This is consistent with the existing parking restrictions in this location and will provide approximately 5 additional parking spaces.

 

Financial Implications

 

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

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

(a)     That Give Way line marking and associated signage be installed on Pindari Road, Peakhurst Heights at the shopping complex, as shown on plan TC1999 attached to the report.

(b)     That an additional arrow road marking be installed at the intersection on Pindari Road, Peakhurst Heights.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committees consideration for the proposed installation of Give Way linemarking and associated signage on Pindari Road, Peakhurst Heights.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received a request from a staff member of Peakhurst South Public School, reporting safety concerns at the exit from the shopping complex at Peakhurst Heights onto Pindari Road.

 

3.      Currently the shopping complex parking area can be entered only via the southern end of the shops, just south of the intersection of Merri Avenue and Pindari Road. The exit to the shopping complex is at the northern side, adjacent to Peakhurst South Public School and in close proximity to the supervised pedestrian crossing.

 

4.      Following investigations by Council officers, it was observed that due to the width of the intersection, vehicles were moving into the travel lane of Pindari Road before giving way to traffic. In addition to this it was observed that some drivers were ignoring the existing “No Entry” signage and proceeding into the carpark against the nominated direction of travel.

 

5.      It is therefore proposed to install a 24m “Give Way” line and sign at the exit to the Peakhurst Heights shopping complex. It is also proposed to install a supplementary arrow marking on the road. This will delineate the intersection and provide further visual enforcement of the intersection restrictions, improving safety.

 

Financial Implications

 

6.      Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facilities Grant – Approximately $2,000

 

Community Engagement

 

7.   An objection was received against the proposal from a resident of Peakhurst. Council has since sent correspondence to the resident outlining the reasoning for the proposal. No further objection has been received.

Recommendation

That 8m of the existing BB centreline on Pindari Road, adjacent to Merri Avenue, Peakhurst Heights, be removed, as shown on plan TC2013 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committees consideration for the proposed removal of part of the existing BB centreline on Pindari Road, Peakhurst Heights.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received a request from a resident, reporting that the existing BB centreline on Pindari Road, is too long and restricting the turning movements for vehicles entering the shopping complex on Pindari Road, Peakhurst Heights.

 

3.      Currently the shopping complex parking area can be entered only via the southern end of the shops, just south of the intersection of Merri Avenue and Pindari Road.

 

4.      Following investigations by Council officers, it was determined that the existing BB centreline is approximately 8m too long. This forces vehicles to turn sharply into the entrance of the shopping complex, or drivers cut over the linemarking which is an illegal movement.

 

5.      It is therefore proposed to remove 8m of the existing BB centreline, making this turning movement legal and appropriate for this location, improving safety.

 

Financial Implications

 

6.      Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facilities Grant – Approximately $2,000.

1.      This report seeks the Committees consideration for the proposed installation of speed advisory signage for the bend on Weemala Avenue, Riverwood.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received a request from a resident to investigate the speeds of vehicles when navigating the bend on Weemala Avenue, Riverwood.

 

3.      Council conducted a traffic count from 31/7/19 to 6/8/19 adjacent to No.5 Weemala Avenue. The 85th percentile speed (the speed at or below which 85% of all vehicles are observed to travel) was 33 km/h and the daily traffic volume was 673 vehicles. As a result, it did not warrant the installation of speed control devices such as humps.

 

4.      Council is however proposing to install 15km/h speed advisory signs on the approaches to both bends of Weemala Avenue that would assist in influencing driver behaviour approaching the bend.  This advisory speed was calculated using the Ball Bank Test on approach to the curves from both directions. The proposed signage will improve safety in this location.

 

Financial Implications

 

5.      Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facilities Grant – Approximately $600.

Author:              Senior Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That NSW Police Highway Patrol be requested to continue monitoring and enforcing speed limits in Rona Street, Peakhurst.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for further requests to install speed humps in Rona Street, Peakhurst.

 

Background

 

2.      Council received further representation from Mark Coure MP, Member for Oatley, on behalf of residents on Rona Street requesting that Council consider installing speed humps.

 

3.      Council investigated this request previously and installed a traffic counter in Rona Street, between Samuel Street and the bend.  This study 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.

 

4.      However to alleviate the concerns of the residents Council installed  curve and speed advisory signs at the bends in Rona Street, as shown on plan TC1843 Sheet 1 ( copy of which is attached to the report).

 

5.      Furthermore, Council changed the existing “No Parking” signs on the bends of Rona Street to “No Stopping”, as shown on plan TC1843 Sheet 2 (copy of which is attached to the report).

 

6.      The above changes were carried out to enhance sight distance around the bend and advise motorists to further slowdown.

 

7.      Installation of speed humps can cause a loss of amenity due to noise of vehicles driving over the hump as well as fumes from decelerating and accelerating vehicles before and after the speed humps.

 

8.      The above loss of amenity results in most residents not supporting speed humps installed directly outside their homes.

 

9.      Council is requesting that NSW Police Highway Patrol continue monitoring and enforcing speed limits in Rona Street, Peakhurst.

 

 

Financial Implications

 

10.    No budget impact for this report.
