Agenda Items

Item:                   TAC018-20        Cross Street, Hurstville - Raised Pedestrian Crossing 

Author:              Senior Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

a)      That a raised pedestrian crossing in Cross Street near the intersection of Crofts Avenue, Hurstville be approved.

b)      That the final detailed design of the raised pedestrian crossing be sent to RMS for review and approval prior to construction.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the installation of a Raised Pedestrian Crossing in Cross Street near its intersection with Crofts Avenue, Hurstville.

 

Background

 

2.      As part of the Development Application approval at 6 Cross Street, Hurstville for the expansion of the Illawarra Catholic Club (Club Central), it was conditioned that the developers contribute to upgrading pedestrian facilities in the vicinity of their development.

 

3.      Council has received numerous requests from residents and visitors of Hurstville to provide a safe location for pedestrians to cross at the intersection of Crofts Avenue and Cross Street near the entrance to Westfield Shopping centre.

 

4.      The entrance to Westfield at this location is a very popular for pedestrians as it is near Bus Stops, offices and other businesses.

 

5.      Additional developments in this immediate area currently under construction will further increase traffic and pedestrians in the area when completed. 

 

6.      The provision of a designated pedestrian crossing outside Westfield’s entrance in Cross Street, Hurstville will improve safety for pedestrians by prioritising right of way over vehicles at this location.

 

7.      Site inspection and observations of pedestrian behaviour have revealed that the desired crossing location for pedestrians is through the existing Taxi Zone in Cross Street. Pedestrians have been observed to regularly negotiate between moving vehicles including cars, taxis, buses and trucks. During observations, many near misses were observed.

 

8.      A comprehensive traffic count was carried out in Cross Street to establish the current traffic movements in Cross Street to identify the average speed and volume of cars at the subject location of the proposed crossing. The findings were as follows.

 

 

 

Location

85%

speed

Number of vehicles westbound per day

Number of vehicles eastbound per day

 (Turning right from Humphreys Lane )

Total vehicles per day

Cross Street east of Humphreys Lane

25.5km/h

2,813

521*

3,382

*Eastbound counts would also include U turn movements made on Cross Street.

 

9.      The 7 day Average Peak Traffic Volume were recorded as follows:

 

 

Veh/hour

Time

Eastbound (turning right out of Humphreys Lane)

49

11.00am-12.00pm

Westbound (travelling towards Crofts Avenue)

248

4.00pm-5.00pm

 

10.    Furthermore traffic and pedestrian counts were undertaken for three separate hours on the same day and the results were as follows:

 

Time

Number of Pedestrians

Number of Vehicles

9.00 am-10.00 am

158

250

12.30pm-1.30pm

362

300

4.00pm-5.00pm

200

280

 

11.    While the count does not currently meet the warrant for vehicles, it is predicted that the traffic generation from the developments that are currently being constructed will increase traffic in the area over the next two years and the warrants for the vehicles will be met. It is for this reason that the pedestrian crossing is being proposed to be built now and was previously conditioned as part of a nearby developer’s contribution.  

 

12.    The Traffic Advisory Committee had previously raised concerns in regards to queueing that might arise due to cars stopping to give way to pedestrians at the proposed crossing location.

 

13.    A calculation was undertaken using the “Austroads Guide to Traffic Management Part 2 - Traffic Theory” document to determine the likely queueing of vehicles at the proposed pedestrian crossing and the effect on overall traffic congestion at this location.

 

14.    The “Steady State Queuing Theory” calculation determined that for the right turn movement out of Humphries Lane, during the peak hour traffic, there is a probability of 95% that no more than 1 car will be queuing on the western side of the crossing. When 1 or less cars are queued in this location there should be no impact on traffic movements northbound from Humphreys lane to Crofts Avenue.

 

15.    When the same calculation was applied to determine the queuing effect on the eastern side of the crossing (vehicles travelling west on Cross Street towards Crofts Avenue), the results revealed that there is a probability of 95%, that there will be no more than 7 cars queuing on Cross Street during peak hour.

 

16.    While the reported queuing results for Cross Street indicate that the proposed crossing may have a direct impact on traffic congestion at this location it has also been observed that queuing from the signalised intersection at Crofts Avenue and Woodville Street regularly extends past the location of the proposed crossing. In these instances the crossing will have no impact on congestion. It is recommended to proceed with the crossing due to the significant improvements to pedestrian safety.

 

17.    Furthermore the queuing analysis calculations apply a worst case scenario, i.e. assuming there is always someone on the crossing and every car will have a 10 second wait time. It is also important to note that in Cross Street the peak in vehicle movements do not correspond with the peak in pedestrian movements, so it would be expected that in reality the queueing due to pedestrians during the peak time for Cross Street should be less.

 

18.    Full details of the queuing analysis are attached to the report.

 

19.    The location of the raised pedestrian crossing in Cross Street would result in the relocation of the existing Taxi Zone that currently exists outside Westfield entrance on the southern side of Cross Street.

 

20.    The suggested relocation for the Taxi Zone is to the northern side of Cross Street outside the Illawarra Catholic Club Expansion at 6 Cross Street. This location is approximately 60 metres from the current Taxi Zone location.

 

21.    The activity of taxis at the Taxi Zone was observed over two days, on Thursday the 24th of October and on Tuesday the 29th of October 2019 between 7am and 5pm. It was observed that 35 taxis on the 24th and 36 taxis on the 29th used the Taxi Zone to either pick up or drop off passengers.

 

22.    It was also observed that the Taxi Zone was used as a location for drop off and pick up of passengers by normal vehicles (not taxis). There were other users such as Armed cash transport trucks using the Taxi Zone for more than 30 minutes, as well as other non-taxi related activities at the Taxi Zone.

 

23.    The proposed relocation of the Taxi Zone will be subject to a further report to the Traffic Committee.

 

24.    Attached to this report are options for a concept design of the Raised Pedestrian Crossing. 

 

25.    The final detailed design plans will be provided to RMS for review and approval prior to construction.

 

Financial Implications

 

26.    Within budget allocation. Developer’s Contribution $100,000

 

Community Engagement

 

27.    Community engagement was conducted with St George Cabs, Westfield Centre Management and Club Central Chief Executive Officer in regards to the relocation of the Taxi Zone. 

 

·    St George Cabs had no objection to the relocation of the Taxi Zone to the northern side of Cross Street, Hurstville outside the proposed new development for Club Central. Consultation with Club Central revealed that there is no objection to the relocation of the taxi zone outside their frontage when construction is completed.

 

·    The Chief executive officer of Club Central raised objection to the building of the raised pedestrian crossing, as he feels the crossing could contribute to traffic congestion in the area as vehicles stop to give way to pedestrians. The queueing analysis presented in this report is provided to address this concern.

 

·    Westfield raised objection to losing the location of the Taxi Zone as an at-grade vehicle access directly outside of the entrance that is nearest to Westfield Concierge Service. Westfield advised that many elderly and disabled customers utilise their concierge to call in a mobility accessible taxi to pick them up. Westfield also objected to the removal of the shelters for similar reasons.

 

·    In response to these concerns the Traffic section will liaise with Bus Companies to facilitate a “No Parking” space approximately 15m north of the existing Taxi Zone along the southern side of Cross Street, to provide an alternative for taxis and all vehicles that need to pick up less mobile passengers from the southern side of Cross Street.

Executive Summary

 

1.   This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the Traffic Management proposed at Council’s Mortdale and Carlton Depots for Chemical Cleanout weekends on various dates throughout the year.

 

Background

 

2.   Georges River Council participates in the CleanOut of Household Chemicals project as part of NSW EPA Waste Less, Recycle More initiative.

3.   The Chemical Cleanout is usually undertaken on a weekend, on both the Saturday and the Sunday from 9am to 3.30pm.

 

4.   Council’s Waste Services department advised that due to the popularity of the Chemical Clean out project, they hold the event for four weekends throughout the year. Two weekends at the Mortdale Depot and two weekends at the Carlton Depot.

 

5.   To help facilitate easy flow of traffic in the vicinity of both depots on the Chemical Cleanout days Council’s Waste services team engaged Local Traffic Services Pty Ltd to prepare Traffic Control Plans for both locations.

 

6.   TCP 2536 has been prepared for Mortdale Depot, located at 100 Roberts Avenue, Mortdale.

 

During the Chemical CleanOut weekends at the Mortdale depot, it is proposed for the following traffic measures to be put in place to manage the traffic frequenting the site for the chemical cleanout.

 

Ø Vehicles traveling westbound along Roberts Avenue Mortdale will not be allowed to turn right into Depot Road, Mortdale. 

 

Ø Westbound vehicles will be directed to turn around at the roundabout at the intersection of Issac Street and Lorraine Street to then travel east bound along Roberts avenue to turn left into Depot Road to access the entrance into Council’s Depot.

 

Ø Once vehicles complete unloading their chemical waste, they will be directed to exit onto Depot Road again, where they can proceed in any direction they wish to travel.

 

Ø To allow for the smooth travel of vehicles along Roberts Avenue it is proposed that The “No Stopping” in Roberts Avenue be extended to cover all of the northern side of Roberts Avenue between the roundabout at the intersection of Lorraine Street and Issac Street to the roundabout at Depot Road, Mortdale.

 

7.   TCP 2537 has been prepared for Carlton Depot located at 78 Planthurst Road, Carlton.

 

During the Chemical CleanOut weekends at the Carlton Depot, it is proposed for the following traffic measures to be put in place to manage traffic frequenting the site for the chemical cleanout.

 

Ø Planthurst Road will be closed west of Bellevue Road, Carlton where traffic controllers will be directing traffic to continue travelling north along Bellevue Road to turn left at the roundabout at the intersection of Bellevue Road and Planthurst Road to access Carlton Depot from the southern gate along Planthurst Road, Mortdale

 

Ø Once vehicles complete unloading their chemical waste, they will be directed to exit from the western gate, where they will be directed to turn right onto Planthurst Road to then proceed in any direction they wish to travel.

 

Ø To allow for the smooth travel of vehicles along Planthurst Road on Chemical Cleanout days. It is proposed to install “No Stopping” along the southern side of Planthurst Road from Bellevue Parade continuing around (still on Planthurst Rd) to the southern gate where vehicles will be accessing the site during chemical clean out days.  

 

Financial Implications

 

1.      Within budget allocation from Waste Services Section – Approximately $2,000

 

 

Community Engagement

 

 

2.   Community engagement will be conducted by the Waste Services team through letter drops to affected residents prior to scheduled Chemical CleanOut weekends.

Item:                   TAC022-20        Park Road and The Avenue Hurstville - Danebank Autumn Fair 2020 

Author:              Senior Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

(a)     THAT the request for temporary changes to on-street parking along Park Road and The Avenue, Hurstville, adjoining Danebank School, on Saturday 9th May 2020 to facilitate the School’s Autumn Fair be approved.

 

 

 

Executive Summary

1.      This report seeks the committee’s consideration for Danebank School to change the parking orientation in Park Road and The Avenue, Hurstville to 90 degree angle parking along the school’s frontage on Saturday 9th May, 2020 for their annual Spring Fair to help cater for the increased parking demand associated with the event.

Background

2.   Danebank School’s Open Day and Autumn Fair is an annual event. This year the school is planning to hold this event on Saturday, 9th May 2020. 

 

3.   As per previous years, the school has requested Council approval to introduce temporary angle parking zones in The Avenue and Park Road, Hurstville along the frontages of Danebank School, to increase availability of on-street parking for the visitors and participants of the event.

 

4.   The Avenue and Park Road are 12m wide. Both streets are restricted to one way and can accommodate the angIed parking while still maintaining enough carriageway for through traffic.

 

5.   Council in previous years has approved the school’s request to introduce temporary angle parking zones in The Avenue and Park Road, Hurstville to facilitate this event.

 

6.   The proposed angle parking arrangement would improve the parking supply and will reduce the width of the carriageway, which consequently acts as a traffic calming measure reducing vehicle speeds along both frontage streets during the event.

 

7.   This event has been held in the past years with no reported incidents or objections.

 

 

 

Financial Implications

 

8.      No budget impact for this report.

 

Community Engagement

9.   Community engagement will be conducted through Danebank’s School advertising of the event. No complaints have been received from residents or the community as a result of previous years events.

In 2019/20 additional funds of $150,000 were allocated from Infrastructure Plus. In the forthcoming 2020/21 budget, a bid of $1,164,000 was requested which is sourced from $864,000 Section 7.11 Hurstville Open Space & Recreation Plan and $300,000 Mortdale Town Improvement Rate.  There is also a third allocation of $150,000 from the Infrastructure Plus Levy.  The total budget for Stage 1 works is approximately $2 million.

 

Community Engagement

 

6.     Community engagement was conducted including: A notification flyer was delivered to all business in the shopping precinct on 10th December 2019 including the plan and notification of a community consultation stall. A copy of the flyer is attached to this report.

 

7.     A community consultation stall was held on Saturday 14th December between 10am and 12pm at the intersection of Morts Road and Macquarie Place, Mortdale.  Council officers, Ward Councillors Con Hindi and Lou Konjarski along with Councillor Kevin Greene were available to discuss the improvements and listen to ideas put forward by the public.

 

8.     There was general support for the project overall. Comments from the community relating to bike parking facilities and street trees have been accommodated into the design. One resident opposed the work believing the existing streetscape still presented well. One resident requested that the angle parking direction be reversed, this was investigated and not considered feasible.

Item:                   TAC024-20        Car Share Trial - GoGet 

Author:              Senior Project Officer

Directorate:      City Strategy and Innovation

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

a)      That the Traffic Committee receive and note the 10 proposed locations in Kogarah and Hurstville as identified in the attached proposal submitted by GoGet for the car share trial.

b)      That the traffic committee authorise the changes to the regulatory signs in the 10 specified areas as to only accommodate GoGet Car share vehicles for the duration of the trial.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      The car share pilot with GoGet aims to trial car share in the strategic centres of Hurstville and Kogarah, with the view to extend the network post evaluation of the trial.

 

2.      The trial will run for 12 months with a possible extension to 18 months.

 

3.      The goal of the trial is to reduce parking and traffic congestion as well as encourage behavioural change.

 

4.      The pilot with GoGet will provide an opportunity to test car share as a viable alternative to private car ownership whilst not locking Council into a long term arrangement with a single car share provider. The trial will also provide an evidence base for the development of a Georges River Car Share Policy.

 

Background

 

5.      Council’s Executives provided advice that a request be put out for the proposal of a car share trial.  Three (3) responses from car share companies were received and GoGet were the successful provider.

 

6.      An Executive Team report was presented on 10 December 2019 for the GoGet Carshare Trial with the below recommendation approved:

 

“That the Executive Team approves a car share pilot with GoGet for 12 months, with a possibility to extend to 18 months at Council’s discretion, to complement sustainable travel modes and inform the development of a car share policy for Georges River.”

 

7.      Car sharing provides residents with access to vehicles located near where they live or work. All traditional costs of car ownership are covered by the car share operator, making it a competitive alternative to private car ownership.

 

8.      Item TAC059-19 of the Georges River Council Traffic Committee Agenda from 2 April 2019 recommends that “Council creates a car share parking policy to operate in Georges River Local Government Area,” and 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”.

 

9.      Council’s draft Local Strategic Planning Statement 2040 identifies a vision to reduce the number of cars in the LGA and states a future vision where “private car use and pollution is reduced with an active car share economy, driverless vehicles and car and ride share facilities…”.

 

10.    In addition, Council’s draft Car Parking Strategy identifies an action to introduce car share zones in any new development and around major train stations such as Kogarah and Hurstville.

 

11.    The trial proposes 10 GoGet vehicles to be located in dedicated bays in both Hurstville and Kogarah (locations detailed in the attached proposal). Bays are unobtrusive yet highly visible existing on-street spaces that are legibly connected and in close proximity to public transport.

 

12.    GoGet is responsible for the management of the daily operation of the scheme and will provide Council with quarterly reports detailing utilisation based on location. Council will be responsible for the project management, monitoring the operation of the car share pilot, as well as enforcement of car share parking spaces.

 

13.    Additional operators will be permitted to join the trial and any car share scheme to operate after the conclusion of the pilot will be open to all prospective car share operators on a commercial basis.

 

Financial Implications

 

14.    No budget impact for this report. All cost associated with the trial to be covered by GoGet including any changes to infrastructure required to support the trial.

 

Risk Implications

 

15.    No risks identified. Termination of agreement as per standard request for proposal      conditions.

 

Community Engagement

 

16.    Community engagement will be conducted including a media release and promotion of the introduction of car share in the two centres and targeted notification to any impacted businesses.  Council and GoGet will work collaboratively to consult with residents and existing car share members in the immediate vicinity of a proposed on-street space.

Item:                   TAC025-20        Riverwood and Penshurst - Proposed Changes to "No Parking" Zone 

Author:              Coordinator Traffic & Transport

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

(a)     That the existing 8m “No Parking, 5am – 9am Council Vehicles Excepted” zone on the western side of Belmore Road, Riverwood be converted to “No Parking, 5am – 6am Council Vehicles Excepted” as shown on plan TC2061 attached to the report.

(b)     That the existing 10m “No Parking, 5am – 9am Council Vehicles Excepted” zone on the southern side of Bridge Street, Penshurst be converted to “No Parking, 5am – 6am Council Vehicles Excepted” as shown on plan TC2060 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed changes to the “No Parking, 5am – 9am Council Vehicles Excepted” zones in Riverwood and Penshurst.

 

Background

 

2.      In July 2019, a request was received from Council’s City Presentation section to consider the installation of “No Parking, Council Vehicles Excepted” zones in Riverwood and Penshurst.

 

3.      Council’s maintenance crews are required to park in close proximity to the toilet blocks located on Belmore Road, Riverwood and Bridge Street, Penshurst. These crews are required to perform work in these locations on a daily basis.

 

4.      As a result of this request, a report was presented at the 6 August 2019 meeting of the Traffic Advisory Committee where the members endorsed the following recommendations:

 

a)      “That an 8m “No Parking, 5am – 9am Council Vehicles Excepted” zone with supplementary “Taxi Zone, At Other Times” be installed on the western side of Belmore Road, Riverwood as shown on plan TC1980 attached to the report.

b)      That a 10m “No Parking, 5am – 9am Council Vehicles Excepted” zone with supplementary “Taxi Zone, At Other Times” be installed on the southern side of Bridge Street, Penshurst as shown on plan TC1981 attached to the report.”

 

Comments

 

5.      Since the “No Parking” zone was installed, there have been requests from the Taxi representatives to modify the times on the zone to allow their taxis to park during the morning peak period.

 

 

6.      Upon investigation of this request, it is proposed to convert the existing “No Parking, 5am – 9am Council Vehicles Excepted” zones in Belmore Road, Riverwood and Bridge Street, Penshurst to “No Parking, 5am – 6am Council Vehicles Excepted”.  After 6am the areas will convert to “Taxi Zone” to allow taxis to park in those locations during the morning peaks.

 

Financial Implications

 

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

Author:              Senior Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

THAT a 30m “Bus Zone 8.00am-9.30am, 2.30pm-4.00pm School Days” be installed along Bellevue Parade, north of Church Lane, Allawah for St George Christian School

 

Executive Summary

1.      This report seeks the Traffic Committee’s consideration for the installation of a 30m “Bus Zone, 8.00am-9.30am, 2.30pm-4.00pm School Days” in front of St George Christian School on Bellevue Parade, Allawah.

 

Background

 

1.   St George Christian School in Allawah is currently upgrading the School’s facilities.

2.   As part of their Development Application approval, the school was required to submit a Traffic Management plan addressing changes to both the private roads and carparking within the school grounds and parking in the surrounding public roads.

 

3.   In May 2018 the Traffic Committee considered the School’s request for the installation of No Parking 8.00am-9.30am, 2.30pm-4.00pm, School Days in Woids Avenue outside house numbers 47 and 49 (properties owned by the school), as well as restricting Church Lane to one way travelling eastbound. The Committee’s endorsement of these changes was approved by Council at its May 2018 meeting.

 

4.   The School is now requesting approval to install a 30m Bus Zone, 8.00am-9.30am, 2.30pm-4.00pm, School Days on Bellevue Parade to help facilitate the private bus service operated by the school that runs daily between its two campuses at Allawah and Sans Souci.

 

5.   The proposed Bus Zone will be installed outside the school’s frontage in Bellevue Parade, north of Church Lane. This will reduce the existing “No parking, 8.00am-9.30am, 2.30pm-4:00pm, School Days” restriction in Bellevue Parade from 85 metres to 67 metres.

 

6.   No residents will be affected as the Bus zone is proposed wholly outside the school’s frontage in Bellevue Parade.

 

Financial Implications

Within budget allocation. RMS Traffic Facility Grant - $500

 

Community Engagement

 

2.   The school was notified by phone call of the proposed recommendations prepared for this report. The school principal was in full support of the proposal. Community engagement was not conducted with surrounding residents as they are not affected by the proposal.

Item:                   TAC032-20        Kingsway, Kingsgrove - Proposed Line Marking Removal 

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

(a)     That 20m of the existing BB centreline on Kingsway, Kingsgrove, be removed as shown on the plan TC2065 attached to the report.

(b)     That the “No Stopping” signage be relocated as per the plan TC2065 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the proposed removal of line marking on Kingsway, Kingsgrove.

Background

2.      Council has received a request to investigate the parking conditions and line marking at the existing roundabout on the Kingsway, Kingsgrove.

3.      Currently there are existing “No Stopping” zones on the Kingsway, on both the northern and southern side, near to the roundabout at the intersection of Kings Place. There is also an existing double centreline on approach to the intersection as part of the pedestrian refuge.

4.      Under NSW Road Rules, vehicles must not stop within 3 metres of any double centre lines.

5.      On review of the request Council has determined that the double centreline on the roadway is in excess of the requirements for a pedestrian refuge.

6.      It is therefore proposed to remove 20m of the existing BB centreline. As part of the proposal, the existing “No Stopping” zones are to be relocated to formalise the restrictions for parking under the NSW Road Rules.

Financial Implications

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

Community Engagement

8.      The residents in the vicinity were notified by letter of the proposed “No Stopping” zones. Submissions on the proposal were requested to be received by Friday 21 February 2020. No objections were received.

4.      Under NSW Road Rules a driver on a road with a dividing line must drive to the left of the dividing line, except as permitted under rule 134 or 139(2)

5.      Following inspections by Council officers, it was observed that when vehicles legally parked outside of the existing “No Stopping” zone, drivers were forced to cross over the existing BB centreline.

6.      It is therefore proposed to remove 3m of the existing BB centreline, this will allow for road users to pass parked vehicles without passing over the existing centreline.

Financial Implications

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