Agenda Items

Item:                   TAC001-20        Bonds Road, Riverwood - Proposed Pedestrian Refuge 

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That a pedestrian refuge with “No Stopping” signs be constructed on Bonds Road, Riverwood near the intersection of Romilly Street, as shown on plan U796 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration on the proposed installation of a pedestrian refuge on Bonds Road, Riverwood.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received a request from David Coleman MP, Federal Member for Banks, to investigate the pedestrian access at the intersection of Bonds Road and Romilly Street, Riverwood, in particular highlighting the ability to cross from the eastern and western sides of the intersection.

 

3.      Currently there are no pedestrian facilities in this location and there have been increasing amounts of requests for a crossing facility in this vicinity.

 

Proposal

 

4.      It is therefore proposed to construct a pedestrian refuge island on the southern side of the intersection of Bonds Road and Romilly Street. This is to increase pedestrian safety and provide a crossing point in this location.

 

Financial Implications

 

5.      Additional non-budgeted funds of approximately $40,000 would be required to complete this project.

 

Community Engagement

 

6.      The residents in the vicinity were notified by letter of the proposed pedestrian refuge. Submissions on the proposal were requested to be received by Friday 15 November 2019. No objections were received.

Author:              Coordinator Traffic & Transport

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That the design for the concrete island on Monterra Avenue, on approach to the pedestrian crossing at Pindari Road, Peakhurst Heights as shown on plan U738 attached to the report be approved.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed concrete island in Monterra Avenue, Peakhurst Heights.

 

Background

 

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

 

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

 

3.      As part of this assessment, it was highlighted that the existing pedestrian crossing on Monterra Avenue at the intersection with Pindari Road, Peakhurst Heights, does not comply with the RMS Technical Direction for pedestrian crossings.

 

Comments

 

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

 

5.      This area is signposted as “No Stopping” and as a result there will be no loss of street parking associated with the construction of the concrete island.

 

Financial Implications

 

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

Item:                   TAC005-20        Resthaven Road, Connells Point - Proposed "No Stopping" extension 

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That a 20m “No Stopping” zone be installed on the northern side of Resthaven Road and a 23m ‘’No Stopping’’ zone be installed on the southern side of Resthaven Road, Connells Point as shown on plan TC2041 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the proposed “No Stopping” zone extension on the northern and southern side of Resthaven Road, Connells Point.

 

Background

 

2.      Statutory 10m ‘’No Stopping’’ zones currently exist at the intersection of Resthaven Road and Connells Point Road. The existing signage is not considered to provide adequate distance when vehicles park on both sides of Resthaven Road. In this situation there is increased risk of head on collisions at this intersection due to the reduced laneway width.

 

Proposal

 

3.      In order to prevent vehicles parking close to this intersection, it is proposed to extend the existing “No Stopping” zone on the northern side of Resthaven Road by 10m and extend the southern side of Resthaven Road by 13m.

 

4.      This would improve the turning movement for vehicles exiting and entering Resthaven Road and further increase the sight distance for motorists approaching this area.

 

Financial Implications

 

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

 

Community Engagement

 

6.      Residents in this vicinity has been notified by letter of the proposed installation of the ‘No Stopping zone’’ extension. The closing date for the feedback was 6th December 2019. No objections were received

Item:                   TAC006-20        Angus Avenue, Peakhurst - Proposed ''No Stopping'' zone extension 

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That a 23m “No Stopping” zone be installed on the western side of Angus Avenue and a 20m ‘’No Stopping’’ zone be installed on the eastern side of Angus Avenue, Peakhurst as shown on plan TC2043 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the proposed “No Stopping” zone extension on the eastern and western side of Angus Avenue, Peakhurst.

 

Background

 

2.      Statutory 10m ‘’No Stopping’’ zone signage is currently installed at the intersection of Angus Avenue and Boundary Road, Peakhurst. Vehicles have been observed to be routinely parking closer to the intersection than the signage permits. This is creating a significant hazard for head on collisions when vehicles enter and exit Angus Avenue due to the reduced laneway width created by the parked vehicles.

 

Proposal

 

3.      In order to prevent vehicles parking close to this intersection, it is proposed to extend the current ‘’No Stopping’’ zone on the western side of Angus Avenue by 13m and by 10m on the eastern side of the street.

 

4.      This would improve the ability for vehicles to pass when entering and exiting Angus Avenue as well as improving turning movements and sight distance for motorists approaching this area.

 

Financial Implications

 

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

 

Community Engagement

 

6.      Residents in this vicinity have been notified by letter of the proposed extension of the ‘No Stopping’ zone. The closing date for feedback was 18th December 2019. The following responses were received.

 

a.   A resident called in support of the recommendation stating it was a much needed move and should have been implemented earlier.

b.   A resident called to request amendments to the plan to maintain one existing parking space at 1 Angus Ave, Peakhurst. These amendments have been made to the pan and the parking space is able to be retained.

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That a 16m “No Stopping” zone be installed on the northern side of Cronin Avenue and a 20m ‘’No Stopping’’ zone be installed on the southern side of Cronin Avenue, Penshurst as shown on plan TC2046 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the proposed “No Stopping” zone extensions in Cronin Avenue, Penshurst.

 

Background

 

2.      The statutory 10m ‘’No Stopping’’ zone exists near the intersection of Cronin Avenue and King Georges Road. With these current signs, vehicles parked on both sides of Cronin Avenue pose a significant hazard for head on collisions at this intersection due to reduced lane width for vehicles to pass.

 

Proposal

 

3.      In order to prevent vehicles parking close to this intersection, it is proposed to extend the existing 10m “No Stopping” zone on the northern side of Cronin Avenue by 6m and extend the southern side by 10m.

 

4.      This would improve the turning movement for vehicles exiting and entering Cronin Avenue and further increase the sight distance for motorists approaching this area. This also prevents vehicles queuing up along King Georges Road.

 

Financial Implications

 

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

 

Community Engagement

 

6.         Residents in this vicinity have been notified by letter of the installation of the proposed ‘No Stopping zone’. The closing date for the feedback was 18th December 2019.  No objections were received.

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

(a)     That the existing “No Parking” zone from 22-24 Ferry Avenue, Beverley Park be converted to a ‘’No Stopping’’ zone as shown on the plan TC2052(1) attached to this report.

(b)     That a ‘’No Stopping’’ zone be installed on the eastern side of Ferry Avenue, Beverley Park from 13 Ferry Avenue to the intersection at Stubbs Street as shown on the plan TC2052(2) attached to the report.

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed “No Stopping” zones in Ferry Avenue, Beverley Park.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received requests from local residents to investigate the parking that occurs on the eastern side of Ferry Avenue from 13 Ferry Avenue to the intersection at Stubbs Street. 

 

3.      The residents have advised that parked cars on the eastern side of Ferry Avenue are blocking more than half the lane. There is insufficient distance available between the fence on the golf course and the double white lines to permit a vehicle to park and leave the required 3m of lane width. As a result the vehicles are forced to cross the double centre line and travel in the wrong lane creating a hazard.

 

4.      A similar scenario occurs along the road curve in between 22-24 Ferry Avenue on the westbound lane. Due to the reduced lane width vehicles are forced to cross the double centre lines.

 

Proposal

 

5.      As a result, Council is proposing a 68m “No Stopping” zone between 22-24 Ferry Avenue to allow vehicles to travel within the westbound lane.

 

6.      Installation of a 220m ‘’No Stopping’’ zone on the eastbound lane between 13 Ferry Avenue and the intersection at Stubbs Street.

 

Financial Implications

 

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

Item:                   TAC009-20        Mi Mi Street, Oatley - Proposed ''No Parking'' zone 

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That a 25m “No Parking” zone be installed on the eastern side of Mi Mi Street, Oatley adjacent to houses 85 – 87a as shown on plan TC2042 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the proposed “No Parking” zone adjacent to houses 85 – 87a Mi Mi Street, Oatley.

 

Background

 

2.      Due to the short distance between driveways, it does not allow a standard vehicle to park legally and as a result access to the residential driveways is often impeded.

 

Proposal

 

3.      It is proposed to install a 25m ‘’No Parking’’ zone between No.’s 85 – 87a Mi Mi Street, Oatley. This would prevent parked vehicles partially blocking access to the driveways,  improve turning movement for vehicles exiting and entering the driveways and further increase the sight distance for the vehicles.

 

Financial Implications

 

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

 

Community Engagement

 

5.      Residents in this vicinity have been notified by letter of the installation of the proposed ‘No Parking’ zone and for their feedback. The closing date for the feedback was 18th December 2019. No objections were received.

6.      Currently there are no existing parking restrictions on the southern side of Water Street, Sans Souci, adjacent to 1 Water Street; however there is an existing “No Parking” zone adjacent to 2 Water Street, due to the narrowing of the road at this location.

 

7.      NSW Marine Area Command has requested an area that is covered by their CCTV footage and that will be suitable for use in emergency response.

 

8.      Following investigations by Council officers, it is proposed to install a 25m “No Parking, Authorised Vehicles Excepted, Area SS1” zone on the southern side of Water Street, Sans Souci, adjacent to 1 Water Street for a period of 6 months, to allow for the construction works to take place.

 

9.      Permits are to be provided to the Marine Centre by Council to effectively enforce parking in this location.

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

(a)     That a 6m “No Parking, 8am-5pm, Mon-Fri, Australian Post Vehicles Excepted” zone be installed on the southern side of Kensington Street, Kogarah, as shown on the plan TC2056 attached to this report.

(b)     That a 6m “No Parking, 9.30am-3.30pm, Mon-Fri, Australian Post Vehicles Excepted” zone be installed on the western side of Gray Street, Kogarah, as shown on the plan TC2056 (2) attached to this report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration on the proposed “No Parking” zones in Kogarah CDB.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received a request from Australia Post to consider the installation of 2 parking areas to allow for access to depot boxes in the Kogarah CBD area.

 

3.      Australia Post is currently changing their delivery modes to reflect their commitment to supporting environmental preservation. The traditional motorcycles are to be replaced with walking buggies as well as electric push bikes to be in line with values whilst providing a high level of service to customers.

 

4.      Due to the high volume of pedestrian traffic in the Kogarah area, Australia Post have converted delivery points in the area to be delivered by walking buggies.

 

5.      There are 2 points which require parking access as part of these changes to allow for postal staff to leave their vehicles whilst delivering mail in the area as there are existing depot boxes at this location to store their buggies and delivery equipment.

 

6.      The 2 areas are located at:

a.   2 Kensington St, Kogarah

b.   Opposite 10 Gray St, Kogarah

 

7.      Vehicles parked in these locations will be identified with an Australia Post logo on the front of the vehicle’s dashboards as well as their official Australia Post Identification cards.

 

8.      It is therefore proposed to convert 6m of the existing parking on Kensington Street and Gray Street, Kogarah, to “No Parking, Australia Post Vehicles Excepted” zones during the permissible parking hours in each location, as per the attached plans.

 

Financial Implications

 

9.      Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facilities Grant – Approximately $1,000
