Committee Reports

Item:                   TAC045-21   Rawson Street, Sans Souci - Traffic Study Outcome 

Author:              Coordinator Traffic & Transport

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Committee Reports

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

(a)     That the request for the installation of a speed hump in Rawson Street, Sans Souci be denied.

(b)     That Council carry out a detailed survey and design for the installation of off-street parking bays on the southern side of Rawson Street, between The Promenade and Rawson Lane.

(c)     That once the detailed design is completed, consultation be carried out with the residents of Rawson Street and a report be presented to a future Local Traffic Advisory Committee meeting for consideration.

(d)     That if there is support for parking bays to be installed from the residents, consideration be given for funding from Council’s Capital Works Budget.

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the results of the traffic survey conducted in Rawson Street, Sans Souci.

 

BACKGROUND

 

1.      Council has received correspondence from a local resident to investigate the traffic issues in Rawson Street, specifically the section between The Promenade and Rawson Lane.

 

2.      Rawson Street, between Rocky Point Road and Rawson Lane, has a road width of approximately 10.7m. It is 250m in length and signposted as 50km/h.  The road narrows in the section between Rawson Lane and The Promenade to a width of approximately 7m.  Parking is permitted on both side of the road.

 

3.      At the 20 December 2016 meeting of the Local Traffic Advisory Committee, the members approved the installation of a “Road Narrows” sign facing east to warn drivers travelling in a westbound direction. 

 

Investigations

 

4.      As a result of the request from the resident, in February 2021 Council conducted a traffic study in Rawson Street, adjacent to No. 12, to ascertain both the speed and volume of vehicles using the street.  A previous study had also been conducted in this area by Council and the results of this study is shown in the table below:

 

DATE

DAILY TRAFFIC VOLUME

85TH PERCENTIAL SPEED

February 2017

686 vehicles

49km/h

February 2021

707 vehicles

48km/h

 

5.      The 85th percentile speed is defined as the speed at or below which 85% of all vehicles are observed to travel under free flowing conditions and is a widely used traffic statistical measurement.

 

6.      During weekdays on average, the eastbound direction had an AM (10am to 11am) and PM (3pm to 4pm) peak of 11 and 10 vehicles respectively.  The westbound direction had an AM (8am to 9am) and PM (3pm to 4pm) peak of 46 and 53 vehicles respectively.

 

7.      The TfNSW “Guide to Traffic Generating Developments, Version 2.2, October 2002” document states that local streets have an environmental goal of 200 vehicles per hour during the peak to ensure that traffic congestion is minimal.  The maximum capacity for a local street is 300 vehicles per hour.  Rawson Street is well within the acceptable limits.

 

8.      The TfNSW crash database was reviewed for a 5 year period between July 2015 and June 2020 which is the most up to date data available. There was one crash recorded in Rawson Street, between Rocky Point Road and The Promenade, which occurred in May 2018.  However the resident has advised that cars have been side swiped due to the narrow road width and do not get reported.

 

9.      Council’s Tree Management Officer has advised that the trees on the southern side of the street (even numbered houses) could be removed to allow the construction of parking bays.  This is due to the overhead power lines that require the trees to be regularly pruned for clearance. There is no support to remove the trees on the northern side of the street (odd numbered houses) for parking bays or road widening as these are in healthy condition.

 

10.    Below is an image facing west showing the road narrowing that occurs near Rawson Lane.  As can be seen in the image, if the road were to be widened, it would require the northern kerb to be relocated.  This is however not supported as it would require all of the trees to be removed.  As can also be seen in the image, drivers are currently parking illegally on the grass verge area on the northern and southern side of the street.

 

 

11.    There are approximately 13 on-street parking spaces on the northern side of the street and 14 spaces on the southern side of the street in the narrow section between Rawson Lane and The Promenade. 

 

12.    To construct the parking bays on the southern side, it would require the removal of the 150mm high guttering and replacement with a roll type kerb.

 

13.    Initial investigations indicate that by constructing parking bays, it would result in approximately 9 spaces being available for residents and their visitors.  As there are currently 14 spaces on the southern side, there would be a loss of 5 parking spaces in the street. Once the detailed design is completed, this can be verified.

 

14.    If parking bays were to be installed, parking on the road on the southern side would not be permitted as vehicles are required to park in the bays only.

 

PROPOSAL

 

15.    Based on the data collected from the traffic study, the installation of a speed hump is not warranted.  However Council will carry out a detailed survey and design for the potential installation of off-street parking bays on the southern side of Rawson Street, between The Promenade and Rawson Lane. 

 

16.    Once the design is completed, consultation will be carried out with the affected residents with a report to be presented at a future Local Traffic Advisory Committee meeting.

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

 

17.    No budget impact for this report.

Item:                   TAC046-21   Belmore Road, Riverwood - Proposed "Do Not Queue Across Intersection" Signage 

Author:              Coordinator Traffic & Transport

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Committee Reports

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

That “Do Not Queue Across Intersection” signs be installed on the eastern and western side of Belmore Road near Morotai Avenue, as shown on plan TC2272 attached to the report.

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed signage in Belmore Road, Riverwood.

 

BACKGROUND

 

2.      Council has received a request from a local resident to install additional signs or lines at the intersection of Belmore Road and Morotai Avenue to deter drivers from blocking the intersection.

 

3.      The resident has advised Council that drivers on Belmore Road regularly stop within the intersection due to queuing from the nearby signals and restrict drivers turning into and out of Morotai Avenue.

 

4.      There is an existing “Do Not Queue Across Intersection” sign on the eastern side of Belmore Road, north of Morotai Avenue and a “Do Not Queue Across Intersection” sign has been removed from the western side of Belmore Road.

 

PROPOSAL

 

5.      As a result of this request, it is proposed to install additional “Do Not Queue Across Intersection” signs on the eastern and western side of Belmore Road near Morotai Avenue to deter drivers from blocking the intersection.  Signage was deemed more appropriate in this location at this stage rather than line marking due to the lower cost, minimal maintenance and consistency across the street network.

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

 

6.      Within budget allocation – TfNSW Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $500.

Item:                   TAC047-21   Percival Street, Penshurst - Proposed Raised Pedestrian Crossing 

Author:              Coordinator Traffic & Transport

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Committee Reports

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

That a raised pedestrian crossing be constructed in Percival Street, east of Penshurst Street, as shown on the design plan and signage plan U912 attached to the report.

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of a proposed raised pedestrian crossing in Percival Street, Penshurst.

 

BACKGROUND

 

2.      Council has received a request to investigate the feasibility of installing a raised pedestrian crossing in Percival Street.

 

3.      Currently there is an existing at-grade pedestrian crossing in Percival Street at the intersection with Penshurst Street.  Due to the close proximity to the intersection, drivers waiting in Percival Street to turn onto Penshurst Street are stopping on the crossing and pedestrians are walking between vehicles.

 

4.      Council’s Design Section has completed a detailed survey along Percival Street in the vicinity of the existing at-grade pedestrian crossing.

 

5.      Due to potential water ponding issues and close proximity to the intersection, the existing crossing is unable to be converted to a raised crossing and another location for the crossing is required.

 

PROPOSAL

 

6.      Therefore, in order to install a raised pedestrian crossing, the existing crossing point is required to be relocated approximately 10m towards the north in Percival Street.

 

7.      A detailed design of the raised pedestrian crossing with line marking and signage has been prepared in accordance with the “Australian Standards 1742.10 – 2009, Guide to Traffic Management – Part 6 (Austroads)” publication and the “RMS Technical Direction TDT 2001/04b”.

 

8.      As a result of the raised crossing, the existing nearby speed hump is to be removed.  The raised crossing will also act as a speed calming device to assist in lowering vehicle speed along this section of Percival Street.

 

 

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

 

9.      Council has requested funding from the Federal Government under their pedestrian facilities stimulus package.  If this is request is unsuccessful, the crossing will be funded from the 2021/22 TfNSW Traffic Facilities Grant.

 

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

 

10.    Community engagement was conducted including: A consultation letter and plan of the proposed crossing and “No Stopping” signs were distributed to the nearby residents. The closing date for submissions was 25 March 2021.  No objections were received.

Item:                   TAC048-21        Georges River Local Government Area - ANZAC Marches 

Author:              Coordinator Traffic & Transport

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Committee Reports

 

 

 

Recommendation

That the report on the ANZAC marches be received and noted.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.      This report advises the Committee of the temporary closure of various roads in the Georges River Local Government Area (LGA) for ANZAC Marches in 2021.

 

Background

 

2.      Requests have been received from representatives of South Hurstville RSL Sub-Branch and Kogarah RSL Sub-Branch for approval to temporarily close various roads near the Clubs in order to hold their ANZAC marches during April 2021.

 

3.      Oatley RSL Sub-Branch has advised that they will not be conducting a march in 2021.

 

Comments

 

4.      These events would be classified as a Class 4 Event according to the “Guide to Traffic and Transport Management for Special Events”. 

 

5.      Features common to all Class 4 special events are that the event:

 

·    requires Police consent only

·    is within the capacity of the Police to manage on their own

·    is not a protest or demonstration

·    is always an onstreet moving event

·    does not require RMS/TMC or Council consent

·    does not require advertising the event's traffic aspects to the community

·    does not require a Transport Management Plan

·    does not require the involvement of other Government agencies.

 

6.      Due to the security risks, the specific details and location of each ANZAC march has been withheld from this report.

 

Financial Implications

 

7.      No budget impact for this report.

Item:                   TAC049-21   Belgrave Street, Kogarah - Proposed Temporary "Bus Zone" 

Author:              Coordinator Traffic & Transport

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Committee Reports

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

(a)     That 30m of the existing “2P, 6am – 6pm, Mon – Fri” zone on the eastern side of Belgrave Street, adjacent to the multi-storey carpark, be converted to a “Bus Zone, 7am – 6pm”, as shown on plan TC2271 attached to the report.

 

(b)     That the parking be returned to its current status when the “Bus Zone” is no longer required.

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed temporary “Bus Zone” on Belgrave Street, Kogarah.

 

BACKGROUND

 

2.      Council has received a request from St George Hospital to consider the installation of a temporary “Bus Zone” in close proximity to the Hospital. 

 

3.      A 50 seater bus has been organised to bring across staff from Sutherland Hospital and Prince of Wales Hospital to provide them with a COVID-19 vaccine shot within the Hospital grounds.

 

PROPOSAL

 

4.      Upon investigation, it is proposed to convert 30m of the existing “2P, 6am – 6pm, Mon – Fri” zone on the eastern side of Belgrave Street, adjacent to the multi-storey carpark, to a “Bus Zone, 7am – 6pm” whilst the staff are required to be vaccinated.

 

5.      Staff entering and exiting the bus can use the nearby marked pedestrian crossing to safely cross the road into the Hospital.

 

6.      When the “Bus Zone” is no longer required, the parking will be returned to its current status.

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

 

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

Author:              Coordinator Traffic & Transport

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Committee Reports

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

That the existing “Bus Zone” on the eastern side of Dora Street, adjacent to Hurstville Oval, be extended 10m towards the north, as shown on plan TC2267 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 representative of Transdev NSW to extend the length of the existing “Bus Zone” on Dora Street (Stop ID 222082) adjacent to Hurstville Oval.

 

3.      Due to its short length (20m) and vehicles parking either side of the zone, bus drivers are experiencing difficulties stopping safely adjacent to the kerb to pick up and drop off patrons, causing a dangerous situation.

 

PROPOSAL

 

4.      It is therefore proposed to extend the “Bus Zone” to the north by 10m to improve bus accessibility for patrons.  This would result in the “Bus Zone” being 30m in length which is sufficient for manoeuvrability.

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

 

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

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Committee Reports

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

(a)     That a 23m ‘Bus Zone’ be installed on the southern side of Lugarno Parade, Lugarno adjacent to No. 9, as shown on plan TC2229 attached to the report.

(b)     That a 28m ‘Bus Zone’ be installed on the northern side of Lugarno Parade, Lugarno adjacent to No. 70, as shown on plan TC2247 attached to the report.

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration to formalise the existing Bus Stops (221075 & 221080) in Lugarno Parade, Lugarno.

 

BACKGROUND

 

2.      Council received a request from Punchbowl Bus Company to formalise the Bus Stops along Lugarno Parade, Lugarno.

 

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 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 (221075) on the southern side of Lugarno Parade, Lugarno adjacent to No.9 Lugarno Parade, to a 23m ‘Bus Zone’.

 

7.      It is further proposed to formalise the existing Bus Stop (221080) on the northern side of Lugarno Parade, Lugarno adjacent to No.70, to a 28m ‘Bus Zone’.

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

 

8.      Within budget allocation – TfNSW Traffic Facility Grant – Approximately $1,200.

 

 

 

 

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

 

9.      The residents in these vicinities have been notified by letter of the proposed installation of the ‘Bus Zone’. The closing date for submissions was 19 March 2021.

 

10.    The resident of No. 70 Lugarno Parade requested an additional parking space in front of their residence which has been amended and provided in the plan attached to the report.

 

11.    Following a request from Punchbowl Bus Company and the resident of No. 11 Lugarno Parade, Council notified the residents of No.’s 3, 3A and 5 Lugarno Parade for the ‘Bus Zone’ (221075) to be potentially relocated in front of No. 5 Lugarno Parade. However, Council received negative feedback and the resident of No. 11 Lugarno Parade and Punchbowl Bus Company was notified of this outcome. No objections were received.

Item:                   TAC052-21   Kemp Street, Mortdale - Proposed 'Bus Zone' 

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 and converted to a 30m ‘Bus Zone’ 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.      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 19 March 2021. No objections were received.

2.      Council received a request from Punchbowl Bus Company to formalise the Bus Stops along Broad Arrow Road, Riverwood and Narwee.

 

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 (220934) on the southern side of Broad Arrow Road, Narwee adjacent to No.128, to a 30m ‘Bus Zone’.

 

7.      It is further proposed to formalise the existing Bus Stop (2210121) on the southern side of Broad Arrow Road, Riverwood adjacent to No.144, to a 20m ‘Bus Zone’.

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

 

8.      Within budget allocation – TfNSW Traffic Facility Grant – Approximately $1,600.

 

 

 

 

 

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

 

9.      The residents in these vicinities have been notified by letter of the proposed installation of the ‘Bus Zone’. The closing date for submissions was 19 March 2021. No objections were received.

Item:                   TAC054-21   Belmore Road, Peakhurst - Proposed "Bus Zone" 

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Committee Reports

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

That a 22m “Bus Zone” be installed on the eastern side of Belmore Road, north of the intersection with Evans Street, Peakhurst, as shown on plan TC2106 attached to the report.

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

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

 

BACKGROUND

 

2.      Council received a request from a representative of Punchbowl Bus Company to formalise the existing Bus Stops with “Bus Zone” restrictions, located on Belmore Road, in particular the existing Bus Stop on the eastern side of Belmore Road, north of the intersection of Evans Street.

 

3.      Currently there is an existing Bus Stop on the eastern side of Belmore Road in this location, but no formal “Bus Zone” signage.

 

4.      Council investigated the request and observed 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 22m “Bus Zone” on the eastern side of Belmore Road in the location of the existing Bus Stop. This will prevent cars parking in this area and improve safety for patrons using the bus stop.

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

 

6.      With budget allocation – TfNSW Traffic Facilities Grant – Approximately $200.

 

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 Thursday 25 March 2021. No objections were received.

RECOMMENDATION

That a 18m “No Parking, Australia Post Vehicles Excepted” zone be installed on the northern side of Junction Road, Beverly Hills as shown on plan TC2270 attached to the report.

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration on the proposed installation of a “No Parking” zone on Junction Road, Beverly Hills.

 

BACKGROUND

 

2.      Council received a request from Australia Post to formalise parking for the relocation of a post box. Additionally Council has been working with Punchbowl Bus Company to formalise Bus Stop parking within the Georges River Local Government Area.

 

3.      Currently there is an existing mail box at the intersection of Edgbaston Road and Mercury Street, Beverly Hills which requires relocating due to its proximity to the roundabout.

 

4.      There is an existing Bus Stop on the northern side of Junction Road at the intersection with Mountview Avenue.

 

PROPOSAL

 

5.      It is therefore proposed to install an 18m “No Parking, Australia Post Vehicles Excepted” zone on the northern side of Junction Road. This will allow for busses to pull over for a period of up to 2 minutes to pick-up and drop-off passengers. It will also allow for Australia Post Vehicles to collect mail from the mail box, once installed.

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

 

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

 

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

 

7.      The residents in the vicinity were notified by letter of the proposed “No Parking” zone. Submissions on the proposal were requested to be received by Thursday 25 March 2021. No objections were received.

Author:              Traffic Engineer

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Committee Reports

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

(a)     That the existing “Works Zone, 9.30am - 3.30pm, Mon - Fri, 7am - 5pm, Sat” on the western side of Gray Street, be extended 6m northward, for the duration of the Works Zone period, as shown on plan TC2217 attached to the report.

(b)     That the parking be returned to its existing status as per the recommendations of report TAC180-20 at the completion of the “Works Zone” period.

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed changes to the existing “Works Zone” on Gray Street, Kogarah.

 

BACKGROUND

 

2.      In December 2020, the Local Traffic Advisory Committee and Council previously approved the following recommendations as part of report TAC180-20;

a.   That a 12m “Works Zone, 9.30am-3.30pm Mon-Fri, 7am-5pm Sat” be installed on the western side of Gray Street, for a duration of 6 weeks commencing in December 2020, as shown on plan TC2217 attached to the report.

b.   That the existing “No Parking, Australia Post Vehicles Excepted” zone be relocated south of the “Works Zone”.

c.   That the parking be returned to its current status at the completion of the “Works Zone” period.

 

3.      During the commencement of works and excavation, the builder has incurred difficulties when loading and unloading to the “Works Zone” due to the existing electricity substation.

 

4.      It is therefore proposed to extend the existing “Works Zone, 9.30am - 3.30pm, Mon - Fri, 7am - 5pm, Sat” by 6m, to allow for parking of construction vehicles directly adjacent to the property. The area will continue to be restricted by “No Stopping” at all other times.

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

 

5.      No budget impact for this report.

That a 12m ‘No Parking, Fire & Rescue Vehicles Excepted’ zone be installed on the southern side of Stanley Street, Kogarah adjacent to No.’s 12 - 24 Stanley Street, as shown on plan TC2276 attached to the report.

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed ‘No Parking’ zone in Stanley Street, Kogarah.

 

BACKGROUND

 

2.      Council has received a request from Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) requesting the installation of a ‘No Parking, Fire & Rescue Vehicles Excepted’ zone directly adjacent to No.’s 12 - 24 Stanley Street, Kogarah. 

 

3.      The hardstand area required for connection to the fire brigade booster needs to be clear of vehicles. Additionally, the ‘No Parking’ signs will serve the purpose of fire services having clear access to the booster assembly room in case of an emergency (i.e. Fire).

 

4.      As per the NSW Fire & Rescue guidelines, they require an 11.5m x 5m hardstand area for the fire engine to access the hydrant booster.

 

PROPOSAL

 

5.      Upon investigation of this request, it is proposed to install a 12m ‘No Parking, Fire & Rescue Vehicles Excepted’ zone on the southern side of Stanley Street, Kogarah adjacent to No.’s 12 - 24 Stanley Street. This proposed space will allow emergency services to work safely and efficiently in case of an emergency.

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

RECOMMENDATION

That the existing 5m ‘No Stopping’ zone on Gray Lane, Kogarah adjacent to No. 66 Gray Street, be converted to a ‘No Parking’ zone as shown on plan TC2277 attached to the report.

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed ‘No Parking’ zone extension in Gray Lane, Kogarah.

 

BACKGROUND

 

2.      Council received a request to investigate the current parking conditions in Gray Lane, Kogarah. Currently there are ‘No Parking’ zones on both sides in this section of Gray Lane and a 5m ‘No Stopping’ zone adjacent to No. 66 Gray Street in Gray Lane.

 

3.      Due to the location of the garage of No. 66 Gray Street the resident is restricted to stopping their vehicle in the ‘No Stopping’ zone making this action illegal.

 

PROPOSAL

 

4.      In order to minimise risk to vehicles and avoid any potential infringement, Council is considering the proposal to convert the existing 5m ‘No Stopping’ zone to a ‘No Parking’ zone. This will prevent cars parking in this location for long periods of time and allow for easier movement of vehicles using the garage. 

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

 

5.      Within budget allocation – TfNSW Traffic Facilities Grant – Approximately $400.

PROPOSAL

 

4.      Upon investigation of this request, it is proposed to install a “No Parking, 5pm – 11pm Fri & Sat, 11am – 11pm Sun, Wedding Vehicles Excepted” and supplementary “1P, At Other Times” zones on the western side of Belmore Road adjacent to the function centre.  This would provide an area that wedding vehicles can utilise and people can be dropped off and picked up in accordance with the Road Rules.

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

 

5.      Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $200.

 

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

 

6.      Community engagement was conducted including: A consultation letter and plan of the proposed “No Parking” zone was distributed to the nearby businesses. The closing date for submissions was 29 March 2021.  Council received one phone call in regards to the “No Parking” times on Sundays.  The times are required to start at 11am as there are weddings during lunch on a Sunday that require wedding vehicles. Parking along Belmore Road can be achieved in close proximity to this area on a Sunday.  Council will however investigate short term parking zones to operate on a Sunday to assist businesses and a report presented at a future Local Traffic Advisory Committee meeting for consideration.

Author:              Coordinator Traffic & Transport

Directorate:      Assets and Infrastructure

Matter Type:     Committee Reports

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

That “No Stopping” zones be installed in Elm Street, between No. 6 and the intersection with Lugarno Parade, and the line marking modified, as shown on plan TC2281, Sheet 1 and 2 attached to the report.

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

1.      This report seeks the Committee’s consideration of the proposed “No Stopping” zones in Elm Street, Lugarno.

 

BACKGROUND

 

2.      Council has received complaints regarding the traffic flow along Elm Street, Lugarno.

 

3.      Inspections by Council revealed that vehicles parking adjacent to the dividing lines along Elm Street are creating issues with traffic movements.  The parked vehicles are causing other vehicles to drive on the incorrect side of the road and causing safety issues.

 

4.      In accordance with NSW Road Rule 208(6) drivers must position their vehicle at least 3m from any dividing line.  Vehicles parking within 3m of the dividing lines along Elm Street are in breach of the Road Rules.

 

PROPOSAL

 

5.      It is therefore proposed to install “No Stopping” zones adjacent to the dividing lines along Elm Street to enforce the existing Road Rules in these locations and improve traffic movements.

 

6.      One parking space outside No. 1 Elm Street is proposed which would require a modification to the existing line marking so that the parked vehicle is no closer than 3m from the dividing line as required by the Road Rules.

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

 

7.      Within budget allocation – RMS Traffic Facility Grant – approximately $1,000.

 

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

 

8.      Community engagement was conducted including: A consultation letter and plan of the proposed “No Stopping” zones was distributed to the nearby residents. The closing date for submissions was 26 March 2021.  No objections to the proposal were received.

BACKGROUND

 

2.      Council has received a request from Connells Point Public School requesting the installation of an additional ‘Disabled Parking’ zone directly adjacent to the school.

 

3.      An assisted school travel vehicle currently drops and picks up students that attend the autism class recently established by the school.
