Agenda Items

Item:                   TAC073-20        Oatley Park Avenue, Oatley - Proposed "No Parking" and "Disabled Parking" Zone 

Author:              Coordinator Traffic & Transport

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

(a)     That the existing “Bus Zone” on the northern side of Oatley Park Avenue, adjacent to Oatley West Public School, be converted to a “No Parking, 8am – 9.30am, 2.30pm – 4pm, School Days” zone for a period of 10 weeks commencing in May 2020.

(b)     That one unrestricted parking space on the northern side of Oatley Park Avenue, adjacent to the entrance to Oatley West Public School, be converted to a “Disabled Parking” zone including the construction of an access ramp, as shown on plan TC2107 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed sign changes in Oatley Park Avenue, adjacent to Oatley West Public School.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received a request from the Principal of Oatley Park West Public School to convert the existing “Bus Zone” within the indented bay on the northern side of Oatley Park Avenue to a “No Parking” zone.

 

3.      Due to the social distancing requirements for COVID-19 the bus for the school will not be in use for a number of weeks and therefore the “Bus Zone” is not being utilised.

 

4.      The Principal has therefore requested that the existing “Bus Zone” be converted to a “No Parking” zone for 10 weeks.  This would provide an additional drop off and pick up area for the school and help to improve social distancing by separating the children at the peak times.  After the COVID-19 restrictions ease, the “Bus Zone” will be reinstated.

 

5.      The Principal also requested the installation of a “Disabled Parking” space on the northern side of Oatley Park Avenue adjacent to the school gates to improve access for mobility impaired students.

 

Proposal

 

6.      It is therefore proposed to convert the existing “Bus Zone” on the northern side of Oatley Park Avenue, adjacent to Oatley West Public School, to a “No Parking, 8am – 9.30am, 2.30pm – 4pm, School Days” zone for a period of 10 weeks from mid-May.  Outside these times, the parking will be unrestricted and would provide a benefit to the community and nearby residents by creating additional parking spaces.

 

7.      A “Disabled Parking” zone with associated access ramp is also proposed on the northern side of Oatley Park Avenue, adjacent to the indented bay.

 

Financial Implications

 

8.      Within budget allocation – TfNSW Traffic Facility Grant – Approximately $6,000.

4.      The ‘Disability Standards for Accessible Public Transport’ requires that all Bus Stops be converted into “Bus Zones”, formalising existing NSW Road Rule 195.

 

5.      Formalising the Bus Stop with “Bus Zone” signage would enable buses to pull in and out of the Bus Stop without being hindered by parked cars and allow for easier movement.

 

Proposal

 

6.      Upon investigation, it is proposed to formalise the existing Bus Stop on the western side of Belmore Road, adjacent to No.1A Amy Road, to an 18m ‘’Bus Zone’’.

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That a 20m “Bus Zone” be installed on the western side of Belmore Road, north of the intersection of Evans Street, Peakhurst, as shown on plan TC2106 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the installation of a “Bus Zone” on Belmore Road, Peakhurst.

 

Background

 

2.      Council received a request from a representative of Punchbowl Bus Company and a resident to formalise the existing Bus Stop on Belmore Road, north of the intersection of Evans Street, Peakhurst.

 

3.      Currently there is an existing Bus Stop in this location, but no formalised “Bus Zone”.  There is also an existing 10m “No Stopping” zone on Belmore Road at the intersection of Evans Street.

 

4.      Following investigation by Council officers it was observed that vehicles are parking within the designated distance for the Bus Stop and this has resulted in buses being unable to safely stop parallel to the kerb, causing a dangerous situation for drivers and bus commuters.

 

Proposal

 

5.      It is therefore proposed to install a 20m “Bus Zone” on the western side of Belmore Road near No. 101. This will prevent cars parking in this area and improve safety for the bus stop.

 

Financial Implications

 

6.      Within budget allocation – TfNSW Traffic Facilities Grant – Approximately $300.

 

Community Engagement

 

7.      The residents in the vicinity were notified by letter of the proposed “Bus Zone”. Submissions on the proposal were requested to be received by 22 May 2020. No objections were received.

Item:                   TAC081-20   HIllcrest Avenue, Hurstville Grove - Proposed "No Parking" Zone 

Author:              Coordinator Traffic & Transport

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That a 7m “No Parking” zone be installed on the southern side of Hillcrest Avenue, outside No. 126, as shown on plan TC2118 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed “No Parking” zone on Hillcrest Avenue, Hurstville Grove.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has received numerous representations from both Mark Coure MP, Member for Oatley and David Coleman MP, Member for Banks on behalf of a local resident requesting the installation of parking restriction signs on Hillcrest Avenue.

 

3.      The resident has advised that they are experiencing difficulty exiting their property onto Hillcrest Avenue due to parked vehicles and the constant flow of traffic.

 

4.      The resident has requested the installation of parking restriction signs directly outside their own property. This would prevent vehicles parking in that location and would allow them to reverse from their driveway and then use the “No Parking” zone to merge into the flow of traffic to head west.

 

5.      Recent traffic counts conducted in this area indicated that there are approximately 5,800 vehicles daily travelling in a westerly direction.

 

Proposal

 

6.      Upon investigation of this request, Council is proposing to install a 7m “No Parking” zone on Hillcrest Avenue directly outside No. 126.  This would prevent vehicles parking in this location and improve access for the resident onto Hillcrest Avenue.

 

Financial Implications

 

7.      Within budget allocation – TfNSW Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $400.

 

Community Engagement

 

8.      Community engagement was conducted including: A consultation letter and plan of the proposed sign installation was distributed to the nearby residents. The closing date for submissions was 22 May 2020. No objections were received.

Item:                   TAC082-20   Othello Street, Blakehurst - Proposed ''No Parking'' zone 

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That a 27m “No Parking, 5am – 9am, Wed” be installed at the cul-de-sac end of Othello Street, Blakehurst, as shown on plan TC2113 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the committee’s consideration for the proposed installation of a “No Parking” zone at the cul-de-sac end of Othello Street, Blakehurst.

 

Background

 

2.      Representation was received by Council’s Waste Field Officer to consider implementing signage to prevent vehicles parking at the cul-de-sac end of Othello Street, Blakehurst during waste collection day.

 

Proposal

3.      Following investigation, it was found that vehicles were parking at the cul-de-sac end of Othello Street, Blakehurst. This restricts the garbage truck movement to completely utilise the turning circle.

 

4.      Therefore, it is proposed to install a 27m “No Parking, 5am – 9am, Wed” zone to indicate that vehicles cannot park in this location during this time and improve garbage truck access during waste collection day.

 

Financial Implications

 

5.      Within budget allocation – Transport for NSW Traffic Facility Grant – Approximately $400.

 

Community Engagement

 

6.        Residents in this vicinity have been notified by letter of the proposed 27m “No Parking” zone at the cul-de-sac end of Othello Street, Blakehurst. The closing date for submission was 20 May 2020.

 

7.        The initial plan proposed a ‘’No Parking’’ sign and stem adjacent to No. 15 Othello Street. The resident objected to this proposal. Taking this into consideration, the new plan TC2113 attached to this report replaces that signage to the nearby power pole.

Item:                   TAC083-20   Andover Street, Carlton - Line Marking 

Author:              Coordinator Traffic & Transport

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That Give Way lines, associated signage and centrelines be installed on Andover Street, at the intersection of Shaftsbury Street, Balfour Street and Rutland Street, Carlton as shown on Plan TC2115 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of proposed line marking in Andover Street, Carlton.

 

Background

 

2.      Council has been advised that there is an existing traffic dome at the intersection of Shaftsbury Street and Andover Street, Carlton.

 

3.      These devices are no longer supported on the road network and are required to be removed.

 

Proposal

 

4.      Council is therefore proposing the removal of the traffic dome at the intersection of Shaftsbury Street and Andover Street and the installation of a Give Way line, associated signage and a 10m centreline.  This line marking would assist with vehicle turning movements at the intersection once the traffic dome is removed.

 

5.      To maintain consistency at the nearby intersections, Council is also proposing the same line marking treatments at Balfour Street and Rutland Street.

 

Financial Implications

 

6.      Within budget allocation – TfNSW Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $3,000.

Item:                   TAC084-20   Forest Road, Hurstville- Place Making and Activation 

Author:              Senior Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That the temporary changes in parking along Forest Road, between Palm Court Car Park and Memorial Square Hurstville  (plan TC2116) be approved in principal subject to, community consultation and Council’s success in application for grant funding from NSW Government Department of Planning, Industry and Environment, “Streets as Shared Spaces” Grant Application       

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Traffic Committee’s support in implementing temporary changes along Forest Road Hurstville between Palm Court Car Park and Memorial Square to reactivate this neighbourhood to deliver short term improvements that may contribute to NSW economic recovery in our local centres post COVID-19 restrictions.

 

Background

 

2.      The NSW Government Department of Planning, Industry and Environment announced on 9 May a grant opportunity for Local Councils, “Streets as Shared Spaces”

 

3.      Councils are encouraged to apply for ‘Streets as Shared Spaces’ grants for temporary activation projects to deliver short-term improvements to local streets, paths or public spaces.

 

4.      Temporary activation is an approach to neighbourhood building, using short-term methods such as pilots, pop-ups or interim improvements.

 

5.      Activation projects can help support physical distancing requirements, local business, as well as build on the local character and improve the attractiveness of centres and public spaces.

 

6.      These Projects can be a quick, low cost method to demonstrate the value of a concept and test future permanent change.

 

7.      Activation Projects funded by the Grant aim to deliver short-term improvements that:

 

•     Support essential workers to travel to work, and people working from home

•     Contribute to NSW economic recovery in our local centres by creating vibrant streets and additional safe space to support local business

•     Activate high streets to create better quality public space

•     Support physical distancing requirements and encourage safe social connection

•     Support communities’ well-being and ability to exercise

•     Attract people back into public spaces in a safe way, when appropriate to do so.

8.      This grant opportunity aligns with Councils current project “Hurstville City Centre Revitalization”  for

 

·        Palm Court Car Park

·        Forest Road

·        Miles Franklin Courtyard and

·        Memorial Square

 

9.      It also aligns with priority projects identified in the Hurstville Place Strategy:

 

·        Planning for a healthy community

·        A bustling night- time economy

·        A connected walkable centre

·        Create a green and open Hurstville Town Centre

·        Engaging with our businesses  and community

·        Enable place making and activation

 

Proposed Temporary Changes

 

10.    Council’s City Strategy Innovation department will apply for the grant and if successful the following temporary changes will be implemented along the southern side of Forest Road between Palm Court car park and Memorial Square.

 

·        Large street trees for shade in line with the Cool Spaces Urban Oasis project

·        Aesthetic pedestrian crash barriers along the proposed parklets to ensure pedestrian safety

·        Bike racks

·        Smart Furniture in parklets in line with the smart social spaces programme – Artwork example as per below. 

11.    To carry out the above mentioned works the following parking changes will need to be temporarily implemented.

 

·    Relocate the existing Loading Zone and Disabled Parking spaces from the southern side of Forest Road between Palm Court car park and Memorial Square to across the road on the northern side of Forest Road between Palm Court Car Park and Memorial Square.

·    Remove all the ¼ P parking along both sides of Forest Road between Palm Court Car Park and Memorial Square.

·    Parklets (as pictured above) will be installed along the southern side of Forest Road between Palm Court Car Park and Memorial Square.

 

12.    The proposed sign changes are shown on Plan No TC2116 attached to the report.

 

Financial Implications

 

13.    No financial implications for Council - Project to be funded by grant application from NSW Government Department of Planning, Industry and Environment, “Streets as Shared Spaces” for the amount of $1,000,000

 

Community Engagement

 

14.    Council City Strategy and Innovation department will carry out community engagement as follows :

 

·     Direct notification to businesses that will be impacted by the changes to enable notification of delivery services.

·     Community consultation and information on the success of the grant application and proposed designs for the areas.

Item:                   TAC085-20   Hurstville Road, Oatley - Proposed Roundabout Upgrade 

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

(a)     That the existing roundabout at the intersection of Hurstville Road and Rosa Street, Oatley be upgraded as shown on plan U849 attached to the report.

(b)     That “No Stopping” signs be installed at the intersection, as shown on plan TC2119 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the upgrade of the roundabout at the intersection of Hurstville Road and Rosa Street, Oatley.

 

Background

 

2.      Council received a request from Mark Coure MP, Member for Oatley, to investigate the existing roundabout at the intersection of Rosa Street and Hurstville Road, highlighting safety concerns and vehicle speed through the roundabout.

 

3.      Following investigations by Council Officers it was observed that vehicles are not sufficiently slowing down when approaching from the east, due to a lack of deflection, creating a hazard for vehicles exiting Rosa Street.

 

4.      An assessment of the crash data supplied by Transport for NSW (TfNSW) showed over a period from July 2014 to June 2019 that there were 3 crashes, resulting in 1 injury.  These crashes do not warrant a Blackspot nomination under the project guidelines.

 

Proposal

 

5.      Council’s Design Section has completed a detailed survey and design of the intersection to upgrade the deflection of the existing roundabout, as well as install appropriate traffic islands.

 

6.      The design takes into consideration the existing bus route operating along Hurstville Road and complies with the TfNSW Technical Direction to improve safety in this location.

 

7.      “No Stopping” signs are proposed on Hurstville Road, Rosa Street and Judd Street to prevent drivers parking in close proximity to the roundabout. Currently there are no signs to prevent people stopping in this area.

 

Financial Implications

 

8.      Within budget allocation – TfNSW Traffic Facilities Grant – Approximately $100,000.

Item:                   TAC086-20   Universal Street, Mortdale - Proposed Speed Cushions 

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Agenda Items

 

 

 

Recommendation

That the rubber speed humps and associated signage be installed on Universal Street, Mortdale as shown on plan TC2104 attached to the report.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the installation of speed humps on Universal Street, Mortdale.

 

Background

 

2.      At the 7 April 2020 Traffic Advisory Committee Meeting the following recommendations were approved as per the report TAC059-20 Universal Street;

 

a.    “That rubber speed humps and associated signage be installed on Universal Street, Mortdale adjacent to Ruby Wing Reserve, as shown on plan TC2104 attached to the report, subject to consultation with nearby residents.

 

b.    That the results of the resident consultation and a detailed design plan be presented at a future Traffic Advisory Committee meeting for consideration.”

 

Community Engagement

 

3.      As a result of the approved recommendations, the residents in the vicinity were notified by letter of the proposed speed humps and associated signage. Submissions on the proposal were requested to be received by 22 May 2020. No objections were received. 

 

4.      It is noted that the resident at No. 37 Universal Street, did not want the speed humps to impact on access in and out of their property. The speed humps are therefore to be installed equidistant between the driveways of No.’s 37 and 39 Universal Street allowing for current vehicle turning paths to be maintained.

 

Financial Implications

 

5.      Within budget allocation – TfNSW Traffic Facilities Grant – Approximately $10,000.
