Item:                   TAC019-21   Water Street, Sans Souci - Proposed "Works Zone" adjacent to No. 1 

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Committee Reports

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

(a)     That a 55m “Works Zone” be installed on the southern side of Water Street for the duration of the demolitions works at No. 1 Water Street, Sans Souci, commencing in April 2021, as shown on plan TC2254 attached to the report.

(b)     That the footpath on the southern side of Water Street, Sans Souci on the frontage of the site of No. 1 Water Street, be closed until a new site is constructed.

(c)     That appropriate pram ramps be constructed on Water Street to allow for safe pedestrian access around the site at No. 1 Water Street.

(d)     That the 55m “Works Zone” be converted to a 55m “No Stopping” zone at the completion of the demolition works.

(e)     That an appropriate barrier be placed on Water Street, adjacent to the site at No. 1 following the competition of the demolition works.

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed installation of a “Works Zone” on Water Street, Sans Souci.

 

BACKGROUND

 

2.      Council has received a request for the installation of a “Works Zone” on Water Street adjacent to the existing Sans Souci Bathers Pavilion at No. 1 Water Street.

 

3.      The existing structure is proposed to be demolished in early 2021, with a separate Development Application to be lodged for future reconstruction at the site.

 

4.      The “Works Zone” will provide an area adjacent to the site where vehicles associated with the works can park.

 

5.      Currently there is unrestricted 90° angle parking and an existing “No Parking, Authorised Vehicles Excepted, Area SS1” zone in this location. The “No Parking” zone was installed for refurbishment works at the adjacent Sans Souci Water Police building; these works have since been completed.

 

6.      An initial building assessment at No. 1 Water Street has shown that the existing footpath on the southern side of Water Street is partially built atop the existing structure.

 

PROPOSAL

 

7.      It is proposed to install a 55m “Works Zone” on the southern side of Water Street for the duration of the demolition works.

8.      It is also proposed that the footpath on the southern side of Water Street be closed until a new structure is constructed. Appropriate pram ramps are to be installed to assist pedestrians navigating around the site.

 

9.      Furthermore it is proposed that the 55m “Works Zone” on the southern side of Water Street, be converted to a 55m “No Stopping” zone at the completion of the demolition works and that an appropriate barrier is put in place on Water Street.

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

 

10.    Within Budget Allocation – TfNSW Traffic Facilities Grant – Approximately $15,000 for pram ramp installation. No budget impact for the “Works Zone” component.

 

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

 

11.    NSW Water Police were contacted by phone of the proposed changes to the parking conditions on Water Street. No objections to the proposed changes were raised.

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Committee Reports

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

(a)     That the “Main Works Construction Traffic Management Plan” for No. 2-10 Woniora Road, Hurstville, submitted by Varga Traffic Planning Pty Ltd, be approved.

(b)     That the temporary relocation of the BB centreline between O’Briens Road and Rosebank Crescent, Hurstville be approved.

(c)     That a ­­­­30m “Works Zone, 7am - 5pm, Mon - Sat” be installed on the eastern side of Woniora Road, Hurstville adjacent to No. 2 - 10 Woniora Road, for a period of 52 weeks commencing in mid-2021.

(d)     That the parking and BB centreline be returned to its current status at the completion of the “Works Zone” period.

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the “Construction Traffic Management Plan” (CTMP) for the construction of No. 2 - 10 Woniora Road, Hurstville.

 

BACKGROUND

 

2.      The builder of a Council approved development at No. 2 - 10 Woniora Road, Hurstville, has lodged a CTMP for approval. The project consists of the construction of a new multi-storey mixed use development, comprising of ground floor commercial space with residential apartments on the levels above.

 

3.      As the building progresses and construction of the basement and ground floor levels are complete, a tower crane will be installed on the central area of the site to allow transfer of materials to the site.

 

PROPOSAL

 

4.      Construction material deliveries, including concrete pumping, are proposed to be loaded/unloaded from the kerbside lane along the Woniora Road site frontage, via a 30m “Works Zone”.

 

5.      Deliveries will typically arrive on large rigid trucks and semi-trailers up to and including 19m in length, as shown on the attached swept turning path diagrams. In this regard, it is noted that in order to facilitate a kerbside loading/unloading along the Woniora Road site frontage as well as a sufficiently wide eastbound passing lane for vehicles, the double “BB” lines will temporarily need to be laterally shifted.

 

6.      The proposed temporary lateral shift in “BB” linemarking will be realigned, will retain a minimum of 3m wide travel lane in either direction, provide a wide 3m kerbside “Works Zone” area and retain the existing E1 linemarking on the western side of Woniora Road.

 

7.      Additionally it is proposed to install a ­­­­30m “Works Zone, 7am - 5pm, Mon - Sat” on the eastern side of Woniora Road adjacent to No. 2-10, for a period of 52­­ weeks commencing in mid-2021.

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

 

8.      No budget impact for this report.

Item:                   TAC021-21   Industrial Area, Kingsgrove - Heavy Vehicle Routes 

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Committee Reports

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

That the “No Right Turn, 5pm - 8am, Vehicles Under 6m Excepted” restriction on The Crescent, Kingsgrove be retained.

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the heavy vehicle routes associated with the industrial area along The Crescent, Kingsgrove.

 

BACKGROUND

 

2.      This report is a follow up to the report presented at the Georges River Traffic Advisory Committee meeting in September 2020, and subsequently approved by Council. The recommendations of that report were as follows;

 

a.   That the “No Right Turn, Vehicles Under 6m Excepted” restriction on The Crescent be changed to “No Right Turn, 5pm - 8am, Vehicles Under 6m Excepted” and trialled for a period of 3 months.

b.   That the volume and size of vehicles be monitored on Tooronga Terrace during the trial period.

c.   That Council write to Bayside Council to request changes to load limit restrictions in Kingsgrove Avenue.

d.   That Council write to TfNSW to request changes at the signalised intersection of Kingsgrove Road and Commercial Road to improve heavy vehicle turn movements.

 

2.   Since the implementation of the trial there has been no correspondence with Council from the residents of Beverly Hills, with regard to the movement of heavy vehicles through the area.

 

TRAFFIC STUDY

 

3.      Council arranged for traffic counts to be conducted on Vanessa Street, east and west of The Crescent. This was to provide data of the current traffic volumes, prior and post the proposed signage changes.

 

4.      The purpose of the study was to investigate the potential increase in vehicles travelling from The Crescent towards Beverly Hills via Tooronga Terrace to access the M5.


 

5.      The results of the Traffic Study are summarised below;

ONGOING DEVELOPMENT CONDITIONS

 

6.      The Development Assessment Consent applied to No. 115 Vanessa Street has the ongoing condition stating;

 

“49. ONG2003 - Development Assessment - All buses leaving and entering 115 Vanessa Street do not do so by accessing the residential areas along Vanessa Street, Tooronga Terrace or King Georges Road, Beverly Hills intersection.”

 

7.      Advice provided on many Development Applications within this industrial area include;

 

a.    19m semi-trailers cannot safely turn at the intersection of Commercial and Kingsgrove Road and accordingly must go straight ahead along Kingsgrove Avenue to ensure that trucks do not break any road rules, by crossing double centre lines in any of the turns. 

b.    Trucks should not turn right on Vanessa Street as this is the residential section of this industrial area

 

POTENTIAL IMPACT

 

8.      The existing restrictions for heavy vehicles leaving The Crescent included:

 

a.   “No Right Turn” from The Crescent onto Vanessa Street for vehicles over 6m.

b.   Due to the inadequate turning area at the signalised intersection of Commercial Road and Kingsgrove Road, heavy vehicles cannot turn left from Commercial Road without travelling onto the wrong side of the road.

c.   No Access into Kingsgrove Avenue due to load limit restrictions.

 

9.      This resulted in heavy vehicles travelling along Commercial Road, turning right (southbound) on Kingsgrove Road to access Stoney Creek Road, heading onto King Georges Road, returning northbound to access the M5 Motorway. Alternatively they were travelling east on Stoney Creek Road and doubling back onto Bexley Road, travelling through commercial and educational areas in the Bayside Council LGA.

 

10.    Due to this travel path, heavy vehicles are then travelling through the pedestrianised areas of Kingsgrove Shopping precinct, Kingsgrove Public School, Arkana College and through the Beverly Hills Shopping precinct.

 

PROPOSAL

 

11.    It is proposed that the “No Right Turn, 5pm - 8am, Vehicles Under 6m Excepted restriction on The Crescent, Kingsgrove be retained.

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

 

12.    No budget impact for this report.

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 – 3.30 pm.

 

4.      This year Council’s Waste Services department has advised that the chemical clean out will be carried out on Saturday 13th March 2021, Sunday the 14th March 2021 and Sunday the 16th May 2021.

 

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

 

 

 

 

PROPOSAL

 

6.      For Mortdale Depot- located at 100 Roberts Avenue Mortdale. TCP 2536 REV 1

 

7.      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  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.

 

8.      For Carlton Depot – located at 78 Planthurst Road Carlton. TCP 2537.

 

9.      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

 

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

 

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

 

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

Item:                   TAC023-21   Park Road and The Avenue, Hurstville - Danebank Autumn Fair 2021 

Author:              Senior Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Committee Reports

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

That the request for temporary changes to on-street parking along Park Road and The Avenue, Hurstville, adjoining Danebank School, on Saturday 8th May 2021 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 8th May, 2021 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, 8th May 2021, depending on COVID-19 updates.

 

3.      As per previous years, the school has requested Council’s 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 angled 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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

PROPOSAL

 

 

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 year’s events.

Item:                   TAC024-21   Louis Terrace, Hurstville - Proposed Line Marking and Signage 

Author:              Coordinator Traffic & Transport

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Committee Reports

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

(a)     That a 21m double centre line with raised reflective pavement markers be installed at the intersection of Louis Terrace and Louis Lane.

(b)     That advance warning curve signs be installed in Louis Terrace and Louis Lane on approach to their intersection.

(c)     That a give way line and associated signage be installed on Louis Terrace at its intersection with Edith Street, as shown on plan TC2253 attached to the report.

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed line marking and signage in Louis Terrace, Hurstville.

 

BACKGROUND

 

2.      Council has been requested by a local resident to install speed humps at the intersection of Louis Terrace and Louis Lane, Hurstville.

 

3.      Council has been advised that drivers speed in this location and cut the corner due to there being no delineation lines to assist turning movements.

 

4.      The 85th percentile speed in this location would be within acceptable limits and not warrant speed humps.  There is however a lack of signage and line marking to assist drivers in this area navigating the intersection.

 

PROPOSAL

 

5.      Council conducted a Ball Bank Test on approach to the bend from both directions to determine the most appropriate curve and speed advisory signs that should be installed in this location.

 

6.      As a result of the Ball Bank Test, it is proposed to install 15km/h speed advisory signs in both Louis Terrace and Louis Lane with supplementary curve signs.  The installation of the curve and speed advisory signs would assist in influencing driver behaviour in this area.

 

7.      A 21m double centre line with raised reflective pavement markers is also proposed on the bend to improve turning movements.

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

 

8.      Within budget allocation – TfNSW Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $1,000.

Item:                   TAC025-21   Dora Street, Hurstville - Proposed "Bus Zone" extension 

Author:              Coordinator Traffic & Transport

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Committee Reports

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

That the existing “Bus Zone” on the western side of Dora Street, adjacent to No. 95 – 97, be extended 8m towards the south, as shown on plan TC2250 attached to the report.

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed “Bus Zone” extension in Dora Street, Hurstville.

 

BACKGROUND

 

2.      Council has received a request from a local resident to investigate the length of the existing “Bus Zone” on the western side of Dora Street, near the intersection with Pearl Street.

 

3.      Currently the “Bus Zone” is 13m long and a vehicle can park between the driveway of No. 95 – 97 Dora Street and the start of the “Bus Zone”. As a result, the bus cannot safely stop adjacent to the kerb, causing a dangerous situation for drivers and bus commuters.

 

PROPOSAL

 

4.      Council is therefore proposing to extend the “Bus Zone” to the south by approximately 8m to improve bus accessibility. The removal of this space would also assist residents of No. 95 - 97 Dora Street entering and exiting the driveway.

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

 

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

 

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

 

6.      Community engagement was conducted including: A consultation letter and plan of the proposed sign modification was distributed to the nearby residents. The closing date for submissions was 12 February 2021.  No objections were received.

That 5.5m of the existing “2P, 6am – 6pm, Mon – Fri, Permit Holders Excepted Area 1” zone on the western side of Montgomery Street, be converted to “P5 Minute, 8am – 6pm, Mon – Fri”, as shown on plan TC2251 attached to the report.

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed 5 Minute parking zone in Montgomery Street, Kogarah.

 

BACKGROUND

 

2.      Council has received a request to investigate the parking situation near the Medical Centre in Montgomery Street, Kogarah.

 

3.      The parking outside the Medical Centre is currently signposted as “2 Hour” parking and there is also a “No Parking” zone to the south.  These zones do not adequately allow drivers to park and walk their passengers into the Medical Centre. The “2 Hour” parking zone does not have a high turnover during the day due to its proximity to the nearby hospitals.

 

4.      Many of the Medical Centres in Kogarah have “5 Minute” parking zones outside their entrance to allow drivers to assist their passengers into the building and then move their vehicle to longer term parking in the CBD.

 

PROPOSAL

 

5.      Upon investigation of this request, Council is proposing to convert 5.5m of the “2P, 6am – 6pm, Mon – Fri, Permit Holders Excepted Area 1” zone on the western side of Montgomery Street to a “P5 Minute, 8am – 6pm, Mon – Fri” zone. The times on the “P5 Minute” zone reflect the operating hours of the Medical Centre.

 

6.      This zone would increase vehicle turnover in the street during these times and assist people accessing the Medical Centre and nearby businesses.

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

 

7.      Within budget allocation – TfNSW Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $300.

 

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

 

8.      Community engagement was conducted including: A consultation letter and plan of the proposed sign installation was distributed to the nearby residents and businesses. The closing date for submissions was 12 February 2021. No objections were received.

RECOMMENDATION

That a 30m “2P, 8.30am – 6pm Mon – Fri” zone be installed on the southern side of Kingsway, east of Maluka Place, as shown on plan TC2252 attached to the report.

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed “2P” zone in Kingsway, Kingsgrove.

 

BACKGROUND

 

2.      Council has received a request from a local resident to investigate the parking situation in Kingsway near Maluka Place.

 

3.      The resident has advised that vehicles have been parked for extended periods in the street creating an issue for the street sweeper as well as the difficulty of customers to find parking to access the nearby businesses.

 

PROPOSAL

 

4.      Upon investigation of this request, Council is proposing the installation of a 30m “2P, 8.30am – 6pm Mon – Fri” zone on the southern side of Kingsway, east of Maluka Place.  This would prevent vehicles being parked for longer than 2 hours throughout the week.  An increase in vehicle turnover in this location would also assist the nearby businesses.

 

5.      Residents and business owners have been advised that they will not be exempt from the proposed parking restrictions and will be required to move their vehicle during the proposed times.

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

 

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

 

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

 

7.      Community engagement was conducted including: A consultation letter and plan of the proposed sign installation was distributed to the nearby residents and businesses. The closing date for submissions was 19 February 2021. No objections were received and Council received a number of phone calls from residents in support of the changes.

Item:                   TAC030-21   Kemp Street, Mortdale- Proposed  'Bus Zone' relocation 

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Committee Reports

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

That the existing 25m ‘Bus Zone’ adjacent to No. 97 Morts Road, Mortdale be relocated approximately 60m north of its current location to the corner of Kemp Street, adjacent to No. 105 Morts Road as shown on plan TC2241 attached to the report.

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed ‘Bus Zone’ relocation in Kemp Street, Mortdale.

 

BACKGROUND

 

2.      Council has received numerous requests requesting the relocation of the existing ‘Bus Zone; on the western side of Morts Road adjacent to No. 97 to be in closer proximity to the intersection of Kemp Street and Morts Road.

 

3.      Furthermore, the existing bus timetable plinth would obstruct the proposed driveway for the new development at No. 97 Morts Road. Additionally, due to restricted space available between the driveways, construction of adequate Disability Standards Accessible Public Transport (DSAPT) infrastructure would be impractical.

 

PROPOSAL

 

4.      Following investigations, it is proposed to relocate the existing ‘Bus Zone’ adjacent to No. 97 Morts Road approximately 60m north of its current location to the corner of Kemp Street, adjacent to No. 105 Morts Road. The proposal will provide bus commuters closer access to nearby services while allowing buses to safely stop parallel to the kerb without hindrance of parked vehicles or overhanging branches ensuring a safe situation for all road users.

 

5.      Furthermore, the proposed new location will enable Council to construct adequate Disability Standards Accessible Public Transport (DSAPT) infrastructure that will comply with the ‘Disability Standards’.

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

 

6.      Within budget allocation – TfNSW Traffic Facility Grant – Approximately $2,500.

 

 

 

 

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

 

7.      The residents in the vicinity have been notified by letter of the proposed relocation of the ‘Bus Zone’. The closing date for submissions was 12 February 2021. No objections were received.

Item:                   TAC031-21   Centre Street, Penshurst - Proposed 'No Stopping' zone and Line Marking 

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Committee Reports

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

(a)     That a 16m BB centre line be installed on Centre Street, Penshurst at the intersection with Railway Parade.

(b)     That the existing ‘No Stopping’ zone on the western side of Centre Street adjacent to No. 9 Railway Parade be extended 12m north.

(c)     That the existing ‘1P, 8.30am - 6pm, Mon - Fri’ zone on the eastern side of Centre Street, adjacent to No. 14 be converted to a ‘No Stopping’ zone as shown on plan TC2246 attached to the report.

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the installation of line marking and ‘No Stopping’ zones in Centre Street, Penshurst.

 

BACKGROUND

 

2.      Council has received a request from the developer of No. 23 Railway Parade to investigate the intersection of Centre Street and Railway Parade, in particular highlight vehicles parking too close to the intersection of Centre Street.

 

3.      Following an investigation by Councils Traffic Engineer, it was found that when vehicles were parked between the existing ‘No Stopping’ zone and the driveway on the western side of Centre Street, traffic flow from Railway Parade was partially obstructed. This will be exacerbated when Georges Estate Health & Aged Care centre commences operations.

 

4.      Furthermore, vehicles travelling on Centre Street had a tendency to cross the centre of the road, particularly when vehicles are parked on either side of Centre Street.

 

PROPOSAL

 

5.      It is therefore proposed to install a 16m double centreline at the intersection of Railway Parade and Centre Street. This will formalise the travel lanes and improve safety and turning movements in this location.

 

6.      Additionally, it is proposed to extend the existing ‘No Stopping’ zone on the western side of Centre Street adjacent to No. 9 Railway Parade by 12m.

 

7.      It is further proposed to convert the existing ‘1P, 8.30am - 6pm, Mon - Fri’ zone on the eastern side of Centre Street, adjacent to No. 14, to a ‘No Stopping’ zone. This proposal will eliminate vehicles parking in this location; improve traffic flow and safety for all road users.

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

 

8.      No budget impact – Developer to pay for works.

 

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

 

9.      The residents in the vicinity have been notified by letter of the proposed installation of the ‘No Stopping’ zones. The closing date for submissions was 12 February 2021. No objections were received.

(b)     That a 17m ‘Bus Zone’ be installed on the western side of Rosa Street, Oatley adjacent to No. 34 Frederick Street, as shown on plan TC2243 attached to the report.

(c)     That the existing ‘Bus Zone 7.30am-4pm, Mon-Sat’ adjacent to No. 31 Neville Street, Oatley be converted to a 20m ‘Bus Zone, 7.30am-2.30pm Mon-Fri, 11am-4pm Sat’ as shown on plan TC2143 attached to the report.

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration to formalise the existing Bus Stops (2223208, 2223266 & 2223209) in Rosa Street, Oatley.

 

BACKGROUND

 

2.      Council received a request from Punchbowl Bus Company to formalise the existing Bus Stops along Rosa Street, Oatley.

 

3.      As part of the Disability Discrimination Act, Georges River Council is committed to ensure that all Bus Stops in the Local Government Area comply with the ‘Disability Standards’ by 2022.

 

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 Stops with ‘Bus Zone’ signage would enable buses to pull in and out of the Bus Stops without being hindered by parked cars and allow for easier movement.

 

PROPOSAL

 

6.      Upon investigation, it is proposed to formalise the existing Bus Stop (2223208) on the eastern side of Rosa Street adjacent to No. 28 to an 18m ‘Bus Zone’.

 

7.      It is further proposed to formalise the existing Bus Stop (2223266) on the western side of Rosa Street adjacent to No. 34 Frederick Street to an 18m ‘Bus Zone’.

 

8.      Additionally, due to a request from Arndu St. Paul Preschool, the existing ‘Bus Zone 7.30am - 4pm, Mon - Sat’ (2223209) adjacent to No. 31 Neville Street, Oatley will be converted to a 20m ‘Bus Zone, 7.30am - 2.30pm Mon - Fri, 11am - 4pm Sat’. This will allow parking for residents and a pick-up zone for parents to utilise after bus servicing time.

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

 

9.      Within budget allocation – TfNSW Traffic Facility Grant – Approximately $2,100.

 

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

 

10.    The residents in these vicinities have been notified by letter of the proposed installation of the ‘Bus Zones’. The closing date for submissions was 12 February 2021. No objections were received.

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Matter Type:     Committee Reports

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

(a)     That the existing ‘Bus Zone, 8.30am - 9am, School Days Only’ on Kingsgrove Road, Kingsgrove, adjacent to No. 323, be removed as shown in plan TC2256 attached to the report.

(b)     That the ‘No Parking, 6am - 10am, Mon - Fri’ and statutory ‘No Stopping’ signage be reinstated as shown on plan TC2065 attached to the report.

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the removal of the ‘Bus Zone’ and installation of the ‘No Parking’ zone on Kingsgrove Road, Kingsgrove.

 

BACKGROUND

 

2.      Council has received a request to investigate the existing ‘Bus Zone’ adjacent to No. 323 Kingsgrove Road, Kingsgrove.

 

3.      As per State Transit Guideline bus stops are generally to be spaced at 200m to 400m intervals. The number of bus stops will be kept to a practical minimum to reduce journey times and passenger delays.

 

4.      This stop is operated by Transdev and services a single school run. Removal of this ‘Bus Zone’ would still adhere to this condition. On review of this request, Council has been advised by Transdev that the existing ‘Bus Zone’ is no longer required at this location. 

 

PROPOSAL

 

5.      It is therefore proposed to remove the existing ‘Bus Zone, 8.30am - 9am, School Days Only’ and reinstate the ‘No Parking, 6am - 10am, Mon – Fri’ and statutory ‘No Stopping’ signage at this location to allow parking for residents.

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

 

6.      Within budget allocation – TfNSW Traffic Facility Grant – Approximately $600.

Item:                   TAC037-21   Dwyer Lane, Blakehurst - Proposed 'No Parking' zone 

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Committee Reports

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

That a ‘No Parking’ zone be installed on the southern side of Dwyer Lane, between Dwyer Avenue and Betts Avenue, as shown on plan TC2224 attached to the report.

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed parking restriction signs in Dwyer Lane, Blakehurst.

 

BACKGROUND

 

2.      Council has received complaints from local residents in regards to the traffic flow along Dwyer Lane, specifically between Dwyer Avenue and Betts Avenue. This section of Dwyer Lane does not currently have any parking restrictions.

 

3.      The width of Dwyer Lane has been measured at 4.2m.  Due to the narrow width of the lane, parked vehicles are impeding the movement of westbound traffic. This is further exacerbated when residents cannot find an egress from their driveway, decreasing sight distance and turning movements.

 

4.      In accordance with the NSW Road Rules drivers must position their vehicle so that there is a minimum 3 metres of lane width alongside the vehicle that is clear for other vehicles to pass.  Vehicles observed to be parking in this lane are in breach of the Road Rules.

 

5.      The section of Dwyer Lane, between Betts Avenue and the Princes Highway, is currently signposted as ‘No Parking’ on the northern side.

 

PROPOSAL

 

6.      It is therefore proposed to install a ‘No Parking’ zone on the southern side of Dwyer Lane, between Dwyer Avenue and Betts Avenue and statutory ‘No Stopping’ sign at the intersection of Dwyer Lane and Dwyer Avenue. This would allow the movement of westbound traffic and enable resident’s safe means of egress from their driveway.

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

 

7.      Within budget allocation – TfNSW Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $600.

 

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

 

8.      A consultation letter and plan of the proposed sign installation was distributed to the nearby residents. The closing date for submissions was 12 February 2021.

 

9.      Council’s Traffic Engineer delivered the consultation letter to 8 households. Council received feedback from one resident objecting to the proposal which prevents them from parking at this location. However, due to the narrow width of the lane vehicles are legally not permitted under NSW Road Rules to park in this lane way. This information was relayed to the resident.

Item:                   TAC038-21   Hurstville Road, Oatley - Proposed Changes to Parking Restrictions 

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Committee Reports

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

(a)     That a 105m “No Parking” zone be installed on the eastern side of Hurstville Road, Oatley adjacent to the Mortdale Maintenance Facility.

(b)     That a 45m “No Parking” zone be installed on the western side of Hurstville Road, Oatley opposite the Mortdale Maintenance Facility as shown on the attached signage plan.

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration for the proposed parking changes on Hurstville Road, Oatley.

 

BACKGROUND

 

2.      Transport for Tomorrow (TfT) (An Incentivised Delivery Entity (IDE) formed by KBR Pty Ltd and Laing O’Rourke) has been engaged by Transport for NSW (TfNSW) to deliver the More Trains More Services 2 South (MTMS2S) Program of works.

 

3.      MTMS is a portfolio of investments designed to address urgent capacity constraints on critical heavy rail corridors. MTMS delivers against the strategic outcomes identified in the Medium Term Rail Development Plan (MTRDP), delivering capacity, reducing complexity and providing improved connectivity on the heavy rail network.

 

4.      As part of the MTMS2S program, the Mortdale Maintenance Facility Upgrades is to support additional maintenance of the Tangara Fleet at the MMC by allowing the exchange of bogies at the MMC instead of at the Hornsby Maintenance Centre.

 

5.      In order to facilitate the aforementioned works Mortdale Maintenance Centre (MMC) is making changes to the driveway arrangements for entry and exit onto Hurstville Road and has requested Council approval to implement parking changes to the existing “No Parking” zones to improve the overall safety of entry and exit in the vicinity of the existing and proposed new gates onto Hurstville Road.

 

PROPOSAL

 

Western Side

 

6.      To minimise impacts of northbound traffic on Hurstville Road, it is proposed to implement a delivery vehicle gate entry procedure that involves northbound vehicles pulling over to the left hand shoulder in front of the exiting rail corridor gate to enable activation of the gate remote control out of the traffic lane. Once the gate is open, the driver would then pull into the through lane (when safe) and make the right turn into the MMC through the open gate.

 

7.      The HRV swept path movement into the MMC can be seen in the attachments.

 

8.      To facilitate this arrangement, the parking spaces north of the existing rail corridor gate, up to the next layback would need to be converted to “No Parking”.

 

Eastern Side

 

9.      Due to site spatial constraints and topography, the driveway exit onto Hurstville Road is at an angle. To improve the site distance for oncoming traffic and to ensure the swept path for HRV vehicles exiting MMC remains within the southbound lane, it is proposed to convert the exiting parking spaces between the existing and new gates and for a further 10m south to a “No Parking” zone.

 

10.    The HRV swept path movement exiting the MMC can be seen in the attachments.

 

11.    Due to traffic flow volume of Hurstville Road in this location as well as the new Child Care development opposite MMC, the proposed “No Parking” zones will improve road safety and the general amenity for all road users in the area.

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

 

12.    No budget impact – Applicant to pay for works.

Item:                   TAC039-21   Railway Parade, Kogarah - Proposed changes to "Loading Zone" duration 

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Committee Reports

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

That the existing 12m “Loading Zone, 10am - 2pm, Mon - Fri” be converted to “Loading Zone, 60 minute, 10am - 2pm, Mon - Fri” as shown on plan TC2258 attached to the report.

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed changes to the duration of the “Loading Zone” on Railway Parade, Kogarah.

 

BACKGROUND

 

2.      Council received a request from Councillor Nick Katris and Chris Minns, MP Member for Kogarah, to investigate allowing longer loading times for the businesses on the northern side of Railway Parade, directly adjacent to Kogarah Town Centre.

 

3.      Currently there is an existing 12m “Loading Zone, 10am - 2pm, Mon - Fri” and “No Parking, At Other Times” zone with supplementary “Pick Up & Set Down Area” signs.

 

4.      NSW Road Rules – Reg 179 states;

 

(2) A driver who is permitted to stop in a loading zone must not stay continuously in the zone for longer than--

(a) 30 minutes, or

(b) if information on or with the loading zone signs applying to the loading zone indicates another time--the indicated time

 

5.      Upon investigation it was determined that the loading and unloading times of vehicles utilising this particular “Loading Zone” frequently exceeded the permissible 30 minute time restriction.

 

PROPOSAL

 

6.      It is therefore proposed to convert the existing “Loading Zone, 10am - 2pm, Mon - Fri” be converted to a “Loading Zone, 60 minute, 10am - 2pm, Mon – Fri”. This will allow loading and unloading times in accordance with NSW Road Rules – Reg 179 and improve compliance.

 

7.      It is also proposed to add the wording “30 minutes” to the two existing “Loading Zones” on Railway Parade, between Montgomery Street and Belgrave Street, Kogarah for clarity. This would enforce the existing road rules in those locations.

 

 

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

 

8.      Within budget allocation – TfNSW Traffic Facilities Grant – approximately $200.

Matter Type:     Committee Reports

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

That 18m of yellow line marking be installed at the intersection of Stanley Street and Victoria Street, Kogarah, as shown on the plan TC2259, attached to the report.

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed installation of yellow line marking at the intersection of Stanley Street and Victoria Street, Kogarah.

 

BACKGROUND

 

2.      Council has received a request from the parking enforcement team to investigate the signage conditions at the intersection of Stanley Street and Victoria Street, Kogarah.

4.      Under NSW Road Rules 2014 Reg 169 No stopping on a road with a yellow edge line;

 

A driver must not stop at the side of a road marked with a continuous yellow edge line.

 

PROPOSAL

 

5.      It is therefore proposed to install 18m of yellow line marking in the existing “No Stopping” zone at the intersection of Stanley Street and Victoria Street, Kogarah. This will reinforce the existing restrictions in this location and prevent vehicles parking in the area, improving safety.

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Committee Reports

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

That the existing “No Stopping” zone on the western side of Boundary Road, Oatley, be extended by 16m, as shown on plan TC2203 attached to the report.

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed extension of the existing “No Stopping” zone in accordance with the construction of the new pedestrian refuge on Boundary Road, Oatley.

 

BACKGROUND

 

2.      In November 2020, Georges River Local Traffic Advisory Committee and subsequently Georges River Council approved the following;

 

“That the existing pedestrian refuge on Boundary Road, Oatley, north of the intersection with Martin Place, be upgraded, as shown on plans U840 and TC2203 attached to the report.”

 

3.      Upon preparing the issue of construction plans, it was noted that the proposed new chevron markings in accordance with Transport for NSW (TfNSW) guidelines, did not allow enough road width for vehicles to park, adjacent to No. 11 Boundary Road.

 

PROPOSAL

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

 

5.      No budget impact for this report.

 

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

 

6.      The resident at 11 Boundary Road, has been notified by letter of the upgrade to the existing pedestrian refuge on Boundary Road and the changes to the parking restrictions.
