RECOMMENDATION

That the existing “1P, 8.30am – 6pm Mon – Fri, 8.30am – 12.30pm Sat” zone on the western side of Letitia Street, Oatley, between Frederick Lane and Frederick Street, be converted to “No Stopping” as shown on the plan TC2198 attached to the report.

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

1.      This report seeks the Committees consideration of a proposed “No Stopping” zone on Letitia Street, Oatley.

 

BACKGROUND

 

2.      Council has received requests from residents to investigate parking restrictions on Letitia Street at the corner of Frederick Lane, Oatley.

 

3.      Currently there is an existing “1P, 8.30am – 6pm Mon – Fri, 8.30am – 12.30pm Sat” zone on the western side of Letitia Street.

 

4.      Under NSW Road Rules, vehicles should not park within 10 metres of an intersection.

 

5.      Upon investigation of this request, it was found that the existing “1P, 8.30am – 6pm Mon – Fri, 8.30am – 12.30pm Sat” zone at the corner of Letitia Street and Frederick Lane, allowed parking up to the intersection, reducing sight distance for vehicles exiting the carpark on Frederick Lane.

PROPOSAL

 

7.      It is proposed to install a 12m “No Stopping” zone in this location, in order to comply with the relevant safety standards and guidelines.

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

 

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

Item:                   TAC175-20   Plant Street, Carlton - Proposed "No Stopping" and "1P" zone 

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Committee Reports

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

(a)     That an 8.3m “No Stopping” zone be installed on the eastern side of Plant Street, Carlton adjacent to No. 385 - 395 Princes Highway.

(b)     That a 25m  ‘1P, 7am – 6pm Mon – Sat’ zone be installed on the eastern side of Plant Street, Carlton adjacent to No. 385 - 395 Princes Highway, as shown on plan TC2204 attached to the report.

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the proposed “No Stopping” and “1P” zone on Plant Street, Carlton.

 

BACKGROUND

 

2.      Council received a request from a resident to investigate the parking conditions adjacent to No. 385 - 395 Princes Highway on Plant Street, Carlton.

                              

3.      Currently there are no existing parking restrictions in this location. However, vehicles exiting the driveway of No. 385 - 395 Princes Highway find difficulty accessing this area safely. The existing tree and power supply unit decreases the sight distance for motorists exiting the driveway. This is further exacerbated when vehicles are parked in this location.

 

PROPOSAL

 

4.      Therefore it is proposed to install an 8.3m “No Stopping” zone on the eastern side of Plant Street, adjacent to No. 385 - 395 Princes Highway. This will prevent vehicles from parking in this location, improving safety and sight distance for vehicles exiting the driveway.

 

5.      Additionally, a 25m “1P, 7am – 6pm Mon – Sat” zone is proposed to be installed on the eastern side of Plant Street, adjacent to No. 385 - 395 Princes Highway. This will improve the turnover of vehicles and improve safety near the intersection.

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

 

6.      Within budget allocation – TfNSW Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $1,200.

 

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

 

7.      The business and residents in the vicinity were notified by letter of the proposed “No Stopping” and “1P” zone on Plant Street. Submissions on the proposal were requested to be received by Friday 13 November 2020.

 

8.      Initially a 32m ‘1P, 7am – 6pm Mon – Sat’ zone was proposed.  However, this would not ameliorate the existing conditions and still allow vehicles to park in this location. As a result and due to residents feedback an 8.3m “No Stopping” zone and a 25m “1P, 7am – 6pm Mon – Sat” zone ‘was proposed.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed ‘Disabled Parking’ zone in Oxford Street, Mortdale.

 

BACKGROUND

 

2.      Council has received a request from the local business located at No. 39 Morts Road, requesting the installation of a “Disabled Parking” zone directly adjacent to the business.

 

3.      The nature of the business is such that it is often visited by the elderly and people with disability. However, there is limited accessible parking space in the locality for direct means of access and egress for accessible motorists.

 

PROPOSAL

 

4.      Upon investigation of this request, it is proposed to install a 7.8m “Disabled Parking” zone on the northern side of Oxford Street, adjacent to No. 39 Morts Road.

 

5.      Furthermore, an associated kerb ramp will be constructed according to “AS 2890.6.2009”. This proposed space will allow a safe accessible parking space for the motorists to utilise.

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

 

6.      Within budget allocation – TfNSW Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $2,000.

 

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

 

7.      The businesses in the vicinity were notified by letter of the proposed “Disabled Parking” zone. Submissions on the proposal were requested to be received by Friday 13 November 2020. No objections were received.

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Committee Reports

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

(a)     That a 75m “No Parking, 8am – 9.30am, 2.30pm – 4pm, School Days” zone be installed on the western side of Currawang Street, Carss Park, as shown on plan TC2204 attached to the report.

(b)     That the “No Stopping” zone on Borgah Street, adjacent to No. 1 Borgah Street, be relocated 5m, as shown on plan TC2204 attached to the report.

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed “No Parking” zone on Currawang Street, Carss Park.

 

BACKGROUND

 

2.      Council have received requests from residents, Chris Minns MP, Member for Kogarah and Blakehurst Public School to investigate ways to ease road congestion during school pick-up and drop-off times.

 

3.      Currently there is an existing “No Parking, 8am – 9.30am, 2.30pm – 4pm, School Days” zone for school pick-up and drop-off at the corner of Currawang Street and Dewrang Street.

 

4.      Upon investigation of this request, it was observed that school traffic would extend back through the parked vehicles on either side of Currawang Street and onto Borgah Street, causing increased congestion in the area.

 

PROPOSAL

 

5.      It is proposed to install a 75m “No Parking, 8am – 9.30am, 2.30pm – 4pm, School Days” zone on the northern side of Currawang Street. This will prevent cars parking in this location during the school pick-up and drop-off times, and should allow for through traffic to flow through the central travel lane, easing congestion and maintaining access.

 

6.      In addition, it is also proposed to relocate the “No Stopping” sign on Borgah Street, this will create a slip lane for vehicles travelling to the traffic signals on the Princes Highway, easing congestion.

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

 

7.      Within budget allocation – TfNSW Traffic Facilities Grant – Approximately $600.

 

 

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

 

8.      The school and residents in the vicinity were notified by letter of the proposed “No Parking” zone. Submissions on the proposal were requested to be received by Friday 20 November 2020. No objections were received.

 

9.      One resident contacted Council, stating that road widening would be a better, long term solution, however based on the costs and removal of significant street trees this would not be a suitable treatment at this time.
