Report Author/sSenior Traffic Engineer, Ms S Selim
File11/118



EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received a representation from the Australian Hearing Bus requesting Council's permission to stand the Australian Hearing Bus on the footpath outside the Commonwealth Bank in Riverwood


AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

FURTHER THAT delegation be given to the Director of Service Delivery to approve the above recommendation of behalf of Council.


REPORT DETAIL

Council has received a representation from the Australian Hearing Bus requesting Council's permission to stand the Australian Hearing Bus on Monday, the 19th September 2011 on the footpath outside the Commonwealth Bank in Riverwood.

The Australian Hearing Bus delivers hearing services to clients eligible under the Australian Government Hearing Services Program. They are a Statutory Authority under the Australian Hearing Services Act and report to the Minister for Human Services.

The Australian Hearing Bus has nominated three sites in order of priority where they would like to stand their hearing testing bus for a duration of one day on Monday the 19th of September 2011 at any one of the following locations in Riverwood.

The representative of the Australian Hearing Bus has advised that the preferred location for their bus is the first location, which is on the footpath outside the Commonwealth Bank in Riverwood.

It is advised that the Bus measures 7.2m long, 2.1m wide and 2.1m height. It is further advised that the footpath outside the Commonwealth Bank measures approximately 8m in width, accordingly the Bus (2.1m wide) can be accommodated on the footpath, leaving a space of 5.4m (7.5m-2.1m) for pedestrians access along the footpath at this location. Part of the footpath is (about 4.5m width) owned by the adjoining property owners while the remainder is Council land. Thus, adjoining property owners approval will be required if the part of the Australian Hearing Bus cannot be stand entirely on Council owned section of the footpath.

The Australian Hearing Bus has advised that they have contacted the Commonwealth Bank and have obtained their consent for standing the Bus at this location on Monday 19th of September 2011.

Accordingly it is considered suitable for the Bus to stand on the footpath outside the Commonwealth Bank in Riverwood, subject to following conditions.

COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - TAC

THAT the request for the Australian Hearing Bus to stand on the footpath outside the Commonwealth Bank on Belmore Road, Riverwood be denied due to the high pedestrian activity* in the vicinity of the pedestrian refuge island outside the commonwealth bank.

THAT alternatively the Australian Hearing Bus be approved to stand within the angle parking zone in William Road, Riverwood outside the Riverwood Sport and Recreation Club and Laverty Pathology on Monday the 19th September 2011,subject to the following conditions:
FURTHER THAT delegation be given to the Director of Service Delivery to approve the above recommendation of behalf of Council.

TAC115-11CARRUTHERS STREET, PENSHURST - REQUEST FROM PENSHURST FRUIT SHOP TO INSTALL SHORT TERM PARKING IN CARRUTHERS STREET
Report Author/sSenior Traffic Engineer, Ms S Selim
File11/852



EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received a representation from Penshurst Fruit Market requesting Council to consider installing a short term parking zone along the western side of Carruthers Street, Penshurst.



AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT a 45m long 1P, 8:30am – 6:00pm restriction be installed along the western side of Carruthers Street, Penshurst opposite Penshurst Fruit market.

THAT the Law enforcement Officers be requested to enforce any illegal parking on the footpath outside Penshurst Fruit market.

FURTHER THAT the resident be advised of Council’s decision.


REPORT DETAIL

Council has received a representation from Penshurst Fruit Market requesting Council to consider installing a short term parking zone along the western side of Carruthers Street, Penshurst.

It is advised that Penshurst Fruit Market is located at the corner of Forest Road and Carruthers Street, Penshurst. Approximately 9 parking spaces are available on site for the customers and can be accessed from Carruthers Street, Penshurst. The owner of Penshurst Fruit Market has advised Council that on numerous occasions he has experienced abuse and aggressiveness from the neighbouring properties due to the demand for parking that can generate from his business at peak business times.

Accordingly the owner of Penshurst Fruit Market has requested Council to install a period parking zone in Carruthers Street, to improve the availability of parking for the fruit market.

It is advised that on the eastern side of Carruthers Street a "No Stopping" restriction exists measuring approximately 55 metres, up to the property 10A Carruthers Street, Penshurst. It is further advised that on the western side of Carruthers Street there is approximately 45m of kerb side with unrestricted parking. This unrestricted parking zone is located along the side boundary of 568 Forest Road, Penshurst. Accordingly installing a timed parking along that section of Carruthers Street would not directly impact the amenities of any neighbouring properties.

Accordingly it is considered appropriate to install a 1P parking restriction to operate on 7 days a week to facilitate quick turnover of parking for the fruit shop and help ameliorate some of the conflict that is caused by lack of parking for the Fruit Market in Carruthers Street, Penshurst.

In addition the Fruit Market owner has requested Council to consider installing bollards east of the Fruit market vehicular crossing to prevent cars from parking on the footpath, near the electricity grid (which is located east of the Fruit Market Driveway).

It is advised that parking on the footpath is an offence that can be regulated by the Law Enforcement Officers without the need for installation of Bollards.



COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - TAC

THAT the request for a 45m long 1P, 8:30am – 6:00pm restriction to be installed along the western side of Carruthers Street, Penshurst opposite Penshurst Fruit market be denied

THAT the Law enforcement Officers be requested to enforce any illegal parking on the footpath outside Penshurst Fruit market.

FURTHER THAT the resident be advised of Council’s decision.


COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - SD

THAT the request for a 45m long 1P, 8:30am – 6:00pm restriction to be installed along the western side of Carruthers Street, Penshurst opposite Penshurst Fruit market be denied

THAT the Law enforcement Officers be requested to enforce any illegal parking on the footpath outside Penshurst Fruit market.

FURTHER THAT the resident be advised of Council’s decision.

(Moved Councillor B Giegerl, OAM / Seconded Councillor A Wagstaff)



RESOLUTION - CCL

THAT the request for a 45m long 1P, 8:30am – 6:00pm restriction to be installed along the western side of Carruthers Street, Penshurst opposite Penshurst Fruit market be denied

THAT the Law enforcement Officers be requested to enforce any illegal parking on the footpath outside Penshurst Fruit market.

FURTHER THAT the resident be advised of Council’s decision.

TAC116-11GANNONS PARK ACCESS ROAD OFF FOREST ROAD, PEAKHURST- REQUEST FOR NO PARKING RESTRICTIONS
Report Author/sTraffic Engineering Officer, Miss A Kavanagh
FileD11/39299



EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received a representation from a resident raising road safety concerns at the laneway that runs off Forest Road alongside the Grandviews Bowling Club, Peakhurst.


AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT No Parking restrictions be installed on both sides of the laneway that runs off Forest Road between Grandviews Bowling Club and Our Lady of Fatima Church, Peakhurst.

FURTHER THAT the resident be informed of Councils decision.


REPORT DETAIL

A narrow access laneway exists between Grandviews Bowling Club and Our lady of Fatima Church and leads to one of the carparks at Gannons Park.

The resident claims that when all parking facilities are being used, cars are parking in the narrow laneway obstructing access for through traffic. This creates a very narrow passageway for thoroughfare traffic and a safety hazard for any pedestrians accessing the park as this laneway is only about 4.5m wide. This becomes major safety concerns, when passengers of parked cars on the left hand side of the road disembark from the right hand side of their vehicles into the pathway of the thorough traffic flow.

The subject laneway provides access to Gannons Park as well as the carpark of Grandviews Bowling Club. As a result, especially during events at the bowling club or Gannons Park, demand for parking in the area and traffic movements in the subject access laneway becomes very high. Accordingly, if is considered important to keep the laneway unobstructed to allow free passage of vehicles.


COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - TAC

THAT the request for No Parking restrictions to be installed in the laneway that runs off Forest Road between Grandviews Bowling Club and Our Lady of Fatima Church, Peakhurst be denied.

FURTHER THAT the resident be informed of Councils decision.


COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - SD

THAT the request for No Parking restrictions to be installed in the laneway that runs off Forest Road between Grandviews Bowling Club and Our Lady of Fatima Church, Peakhurst be denied.

FURTHER THAT the resident be informed of Councils decision.

(Moved His Worship the Mayor, Councillor S McMahon / Seconded Councillor B Giegerl, OAM)



RESOLUTION - CCL

THAT the request for No Parking restrictions to be installed in the laneway that runs off Forest Road between Grandviews Bowling Club and Our Lady of Fatima Church, Peakhurst be denied.

FURTHER THAT the resident be informed of Councils decision.

File04/2547



EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received a representation from Councillor Liu requesting Council to consider installing 15 minutes parking restriction along the western side of Park Road, north of Forest Road, Hurstville.

FURTHER THAT Councillor Liu be advised of Council's decision..


REPORT DETAIL

Council has received representation from Councillor Liu requesting Council to consider installing a 15 minutes parking restriction along the western side of Park Road, north of Forest Road, Hurstville, to assist for quick turnover of parking for Hurstville Chinese Restaurant located at the intersection of Forest Road and Park Road, Hurstville.

It is advised that this subject location along the western side of Park Road, Hurstville adjacent to Hurstville Chinese Restaurant has a Bus Bay with associated Bus Zone restriction signs, the Bus Zone is then followed by the statutory No Stopping restriction for the intersection of Park Road and Humphreys Lane.

It is further advised that the existing Bus Zone is required and utilised by State Transit Bus Services and accordingly cannot be removed or shortened. Accordingly, it is not feasible to accommodate a 15 minute parking zone on the western side of Park Road, Hurstville.

It should be noted that there are plenty of period parking spaces on Forest Road (both sides) and on the eastern side of Park Road in the vicinity of Hurstville Chinese Restaurant.

However, one of the existing one-hour parking space in Park Road can be changed to a 15 minute parking space to satisfy the needs of the restaurant.


COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - TAC

TAC118-1111 MASHMAN AVENUE AND 7 COLVIN AVENUE, KINGSGROVE - CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT PLAN
Report Author/sSenior Traffic Engineer, Ms S Selim
File10/DA-461:6



EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received a Construction Traffic Management Plan from the developer of Mashman Site (11 Mashman Avenue and 7 Colvin Avenue) in Kingsgrove, requesting Council to consider the implementation of various parking restrictions to facilitate heavy vehicles access to the development site during the Construction Stage.


AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT the existing 1P period parking zone along the southern side of Paterson Avenue between Mashman Lane and Kingsgrove Road, Kingsgrove be removed and replaced with a No Parking restriction.

THAT 10m statutory No Stopping zones followed by 15m long No Parking zones be installed on both sides of Mashman Avenue at the corner of Northcott Avenue, Kingsgrove. The proposed No Parking restriction be removed with the completion of construction works at Mashman Site.

THAT the request to widen the intersection of Mashman Lane and Paterson Avenue, Kingsgrove be determined by the Committee.

THAT cost of implementation of all construction traffic management measures including the installation of parking restrictions be borne by the applicant.

FURTHER THAT that developer be advised of Council's decision.


REPORT DETAIL

The developer of the Mashman Site at 11 Mashman Avenue and 7 Colvin Avenue, Kingsgrove has submitted a Construction Traffic Management Plan for consideration in accordance with Council’s Conditions of Consent (Condition 84).

The demolition and excavation of the site is expected to occur over a 20 week period. Truck arrivals during this stage are estimated at approximately 50-60 trucks per day. This equates to between 5-6 trucks per hour having regards for the hours of construction.

The Construction Stage is expected to involve an average work force of up to 30 people per day on site with a maximum of 50 people at any one time. An estimated total of 10 truck arrivals are expected per day (approximately 1 truck per hour) with the majority of deliveries accessing the on-site Work Zone from Mashman Lane. Precast Truck entry will be undertaken via Mashman Avenue and Colvin Avenue. The developer is planning to commence construction works mid-January 2012 and expected to occur over a total duration of 30 weeks.

A Works Zone measuring 40m long by 5m wide will be provided within the site boundary.

To facilitate the truck access to the site during the demolition and the construction stages of the project, the applicant is requesting Council to approve following parking restrictions:


It is advised that the intersection of Mashman Lane and Paterson Avenue does not have sufficient road reserve to allow for the proposed widening to occur and still maintain footpath access for pedestrians. Accordingly, the developer is proposing to remove the existing pedestrian path on the western side of Mashman Lane (adjoining the former Kingsgrove Police Station) to accommodate the widening of carriageway at the intersection. The developer argues that public access will be available across the development between Mashman Lane and Colvin Street after the completion of this project.

It is further advised that any loss of parking due to the requested parking restrictions will be compensated by provision of additional public parking spaces within the new development.

A copy of the Construction Traffic Management Plan is included with all details of swept path and routes of trucks that will need to access the construction site.

The resident has advised Council that due to the above parking restrictions, vehicles that require long term parking (like business owners and staff) park in the unrestricted neighbouring streets, accordingly the resident is concerned that their quiet residential streets have been congested by cars that park for long periods of time.

There seems to be a large amount of restricted parking along the neighbouring streets to the businesses mentioned above, and site inspections has revealed that most of these parking spaces are not utilised, especially on Kings Place and Maluka Place Beverly Hills. On the other had the unrestricted side of Kingsway was fully occupied. Accordingly there seems to be more of demand for long term parking rather than short term parking.

It is considered appropriate to survey the existing businesses and ask them if all these parking restrictions are required, as the removal of some of these restrictions can provide more long term parking to meet the demand.


COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - TAC

THAT all the business along the southern side of Kingsway be surveyed in regards to the removal of the restricted parking in Maluka Place and Kings Place, Beverly Hills

THAT the result of the survey be reported back to the Traffic Committee for consideration and recommendation

FURTHER THAT the resident be advised of Council's decision.

TAC121-11CHIVERS HILL CAR PARK - REQUEST TO CHANGE NO PARKING TO NO STOPPING
Report Author/sSenior Traffic Engineer, Ms S Selim
FileSF10/142



EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received a representation from Mark Coure, MP, Member of Oatley on behalf of a resident in Chivers Avenue, Lugarno requesting Council to consider changing the existing No Parking restriction in Chivers Avenue, Lugarno at the shops to a No Stopping restriction.


AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT the request to change the existing No Parking restriction on the southern side of Chivers Avenue, Lugarno at Chivers Hills Shops to a No Stopping restriction be denied.

THAT council writes to the cafe shop at the corner of Chivers Hill Shops fronting Chivers Avenue, Lugarno requesting that they communicate to their customers not to park their vehicles within the "No Parking" zone.

THAT The Law Enforcement Officers be requested to regulate the "No Parking" restriction.

FURTHER THAT Mr Mark Coure's Office be advised of Council's decision


REPORT DETAIL

Council has received a representation from Mr Mark Coure, MP, Member for Oatley on behalf of a resident in Chivers Avenue Lugarno requesting Council to consider changing the existing No Parking restriction along the southern side of Chivers Avenue, Lugarno outside the shops to a No Stopping restriction.

On the southern side of Chivers Avenue, Lugarno west of the exit driveway of Chivers Hill Car Park, a 13m "No Parking" restriction exists. There is a cafe shop with outdoor dining adjoining the subject parking restriction

The resident has advised that customers of the Cafe shop abuse the "No Parking" restriction, whereby they park their vehicle at the "No Parking" restriction and sit at the outdoor dining area watching their car, and if they see a law enforcement officer they quickly get to their car and move it to avoid being fined. Accordingly the resident has requested that Council change the No Parking restriction to a No Stopping restriction to avoid this situation.

It is advised that this 13m of No Parking would have been installed to improve sight distance of vehicles exiting the Chivers Hill Car Park and in addition to facilitate pick up and drop off of passengers and/or goods at the shops.

If the parking restriction was changed from "No Parking" to "No Stopping" then this will remove the ability for cars to pick up and drop off passengers or goods at the Chivers Hill Shops.


COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - TAC

THAT the request to change the existing No Parking restriction on the southern side of Chivers Avenue, Lugarno at Chivers Hills Shops to a No Stopping restriction be denied.

Report Author/sTraffic Engineering Officer, Miss A Kavanagh
FileD11/72870



EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received a representation from Mark Coure, MP, Member for Oatley, on behalf of a resident, raising road safety concerns around the bend on Forest Road between Valentia Avenue and Ponderossa Place, Lugarno.


AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT this matter be referred to Hurstville Local Area Command to monitor speeding around the bend on Forest Road, between Valentia Avenue and Ponderossa Place, Lugarno.

THAT vibralines be installed along the double centre lines around the bend on Forest Road, between Valentia Avenue and Ponderossa Place.

FURTHER THAT Mark Coure's office be advised of Council's decision.


REPORT DETAIL

Council has received a representation from Mark Coure's office, MP, Member for Oatley, on behalf of a resident living at 9 Cypress Drive, Lugarno raising road safety concerns around the bend on Forest Road, Lugarno between Valentia Avenue and Ponderossa Place. The resident has advised that the stretch of road has a number of concealed driveways due to the bend on the road. The resident has raised further concerns regarding the number of heavy vehicles accessing construction sites in the area exceeding the posted speed limit (50km/hr) of the street and has expressed fears of one of these heavy vehicles loosing control around this bend.

Accordingly Council has conducted a comprehensive traffic survey in Forest Road within the subject bend. The survey results showed the following percentages of traffic classes travelling along Forest Road.


The following table displays the results gathered from the comprehensive traffic survey:

As detailed above, the average speed of traffic on Forest Road, Peakhurst is below the posted speed limit (50km/h) of the street. The 85th percentile speed in Forest Road Peakhurst is within a 3km/h breach of the posted speed limit (50km/h). Accordingly, it is evident that speeding is not an issue in this area. The percantage of large heavy vehicles travelling in this location is considered very low. Upon site investigation it was evident that the existing double centre lines also clearly delineates the bend.


To ascertain road safety concerns raised by the resident, the Roads and Traffic Authority accident data were also reviewed for the 5 year period between December 2005 and June 2011 and for this period no accidents have been recorded.

Accordingly it is recommended that this matter be referred to Hurstville Highway PAtrol for monitoring of speeding vehicles at the subject location and that vibralines be installed along the double centre lines at the bend on Forest Road between Valentia Avenue and Ponderosse Place, Lugarno to further delineate the double centre lines. Vibralines will alert the motorists if they drive on the centrelines by making the tyres of the vehicle shudder.


COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - TAC

TAC123-11CLARENDON ROAD PEAKHURST, ROAD SAFETY CONCERNS - PETITION FROM RESIDENTS REQUESTING TRAFFIC CALMING DEVICES
Report Author/sSenior Traffic Engineer, Ms S Selim
File11/348



EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received a representation from Mr Robert Furolo, MP, Member for Lakemba on behalf of residents of Clarendon Road, Peakhurst requesting Council to consider a petition signed by the residents in Clarendon Road requesting traffic calming devices to be installed in Clarendon Road, Peakhurst.


AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT Council’s resolution at its meeting in May 2011 to deny the request for traffic calming devices in Clarendon Road, Peakhurst be upheld.

THAT the speeding concern in Clarendon Road, Peakhurst be referred to Hurstville Local Area Command for enforcement of the 50km/h speed limit.

FURTHER THAT Mr Robert Furolo, MP, Member for Lakemba be advised of Council's decision.


REPORT DETAIL

Council has received a representation from Mr Robert Furolo, Member for Lakemba on behalf of residents of Clarendon Road, Peakhurst requesting Council to consider a petition signed by residents in Clarendon Road requesting Council to consider installing traffic calming devices in Clarendon Road, Peakhurst.

It is advised that a similar request from Mr Furolo in regards to road safety concerns in Clarendon Road, Peakhurst was considered by Hurstville Traffic Committee earlier this year.

This matter was initially considered by the Traffic Advisory Committee at its meeting in February 2011 where it recommended:

Accordingly in March 2011, a comprehensive traffic survey was carried out to establish if speeding is a problem in the street by setting up two survey sites in the street. The first location on Clarendon Road was between Belmore Road and Ogilvy Street North. The second location was between Johnstone Street and Clarke Street North. The surveys were conducted between Friday the 18th March and Monday the 28th March 2011. Results of the surveys are tabulated below.Between Belmore Rd and Ogilvy Street North:
CombinedEast BoundWest Bound
AADT21739401232

Speed 50%ile44.6km/h41.8km/h48.2km/h
Speed 85ile%52.9km/h49.0km/h55.4km/h
As detailed above, the average speed of traffic on Clarendon Road at the above two locations were well below the posted speed limit (50km/h) of the street. The 85th percentile speed of vehicles at the two survey locations is approximately 56.5km/h and 52.9km/h respectively. Although the 85th percentile speed in Clarendon Road is marginally above the posted speed limit of 50km/h, the speeding problem is considered not significant enough to warrant the installation of traffic calming devices due to the cost as well as other adverse impacts of traffic devices; specifically potential noise and air pollution resulting from decelerating and acceleration of traffic at traffic devices.



It is further advised that Council has received representation from a resident stating that there is no existing speeding problem in Clarendon Road as Clarendon Road only provides access to a few roads and does not act as a short cut or a thoroughfare and is located only two streets away from the Highway Patrol Station.

To ascertain road safety concerns raised by the resident, the Roads and Traffic Authority accident data were reviewed for the 5-year period between January 2005 and December 2009. Two accidents have been reported. One accident has occurred on 11 April 2006 at the intersection of Clarendon Road and Ogilvy Street, Peakhurst and the other accident has occurred on 24 December 2009 at the intersection of Clarendon and Clark Street, Peakhurst. Both these accidents have not resulted from speeding.


Accordingly the Traffic Committee at its meeting in May 2011 recommended:


The results of the traffic surveys and accident history of the area clearly demonstrate that there is no major speeding problem in Clarendon Road, Peakhurst. Accordingly, it is considered installation of traffic calming devices in Clarendon Road cannot be justified.


COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - TAC

THAT Council’s resolution at its meeting in May 2011 to deny the request for traffic calming devices in Clarendon Road, Peakhurst be upheld.

THAT the speeding concern in Clarendon Road, Peakhurst be referred to Hurstville Local Area Command for enforcement of the 50km/h speed limit.

TAC124-11CROYDON ROAD, HURSTVILLE - REQUEST FOR PEDESTRIAN CROSSING
Report Author/sSenior Traffic Engineer - Ms S Selim
File10/1678



EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received a representation from Ms Cherie Burton, MP, Member for Kogarah on behalf a resident of Hurstville, requesting a pedestrian crossing on Croydon Road, Hurstville.


AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT the request for installation of a pedestrian crossing on Croydon Road between Gannons Avenue and Beronga Avenue, Hurstville be denied.

FURTHER THAT Ms Cherie Burton's office be advised of Council's decision.


REPORT DETAIL

Council has received a representation from Ms Cherie Burton, MP, Member for Kogarah on behalf of a resident of Hurstville, requesting Council to install a pedestrian crossing on Croydon Road, between Gannons Avenue and Beronga Avenue near Bexley Mixed Business, Hurstville.

The resident has advised that there are three bus services plus school bus service that run on Croydon Road, Hurstville. He claims that it is very difficult to cross Croydon Road at this location as it is very busy road with heavy traffic flows on both directions.

It is advised that this section of Croydon Road is a regional road under Council's jurisdiction. It is further advised that Croydon Road, Hurstville is one of the LGA boundaries, whereby the western half of Croydon Road comes under Hurstville City Council's jurisdiction, while the eastern side of the road comes under Rockdale City Council's jurisdiction.

Croydon Road is four-lane road and provides two lanes of traffic on each direction of travel. Accordingly, it is not feasible to install a pedestrian crossing across the four lanes of travel without blocking one lane in each direction of travel to abide by the requirements of RTA and Australian Standards. Blocking one lane will reduce the capacity of Croydon Road, Hurstville at this section to one lane each way.

As discussed above this subject section of Croydon Road is a regional road carrying a high volume of traffic and accordingly reducing the capacity of Croydon Road by installing a pedestrian crossing will cause heavy build up of traffic particularly during morning and afternoon peak times.


COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - TAC

THAT the request for installation of a pedestrian crossing on Croydon Road between Gannons Avenue and Beronga Avenue, Hurstville be denied.

FURTHER THAT Ms Cherie Burton's office be advised of Council's decision.


COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - SD

THAT the request for installation of a pedestrian crossing on Croydon Road between Gannons Avenue and Beronga Avenue, Hurstville be denied.

FURTHER THAT Ms Cherie Burton's office be advised of Council's decision.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

This report is tabled to report the findings of the investigations undertaken as recommended by the Hurstville Traffic Advisory Committee in response to a representation from Mr Kevin Greene, former Member for Oatley, requesting Council to consider installing a traffic calming device outside the Grandviews Club on Forest Road, Peakhurst.


AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

REPORT DETAIL

Council received a representation from Mr Kevin Greene, former Member for Oatley on behalf of a member of Grandviews Club, requesting Council to consider installing traffic calming devices outside the club on Forest Road, Peakhurst.

This was consider by the Traffic advisory committee in March 2011, where is recommended in part, conducting a comprehensive traffic survey in Forest Road, outside the Grandviews recreational and bowling club, to establish the current traffic situation and to identify if there is a speeding issue in Forest Road, Peakhurst.

Accordingly in April 2011, a comprehensive traffic survey was carried out to establish if speeding is a problem in the street by setting up a survey site on Forest Road, Peakhurst, outside Grandviews recreational and bowling club. The results of the survey are tabulated below.

As detailed above, the average speed of traffic on Forest Road, Peakhurst is slightly above the posted speed limit (50km/h) of the street. The 85th percentile speed in Forest Road, Peakhurst is within a 10km/h breach of the posted speed limit (50km/h).


Whilst Council recognises that some vehicle do speed in this area, the speeding is not significant enough to warrant the installation of traffic calming devices due to the cost as well as other adverse impacts of traffic devices; specifically noise and air pollution resulting from decelerating and acceleration of traffic and traffic devices. The section of road in question lies between two closely situated roundabouts and the addition of a third traffic calming device in such close proximity would have the potential to increase traffic congestion in the area.

To ascertain road safety concerns raised by the resident, the Roads and Traffic Authority accident data were reviewed for the five year period between December 2005 and June 2010. No accidents were recorded at this location during this period.

TAC127-11OGILVY STREET PEAKHURST - REQUEST FOR A PEDESTRIAN CROSSING FOR PEAKHURST WEST PUBLIC SCHOOL
Report Author/sSenior Traffic Engineer, Ms S Selim
File11/358



EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

This report is tabled to report the findings of the investigations undertaken as recommended by the Hurstville Traffic Advisory Committee in response to a request from Peakhurst West Public School to investigate the possibility of installing a Pedestrian Crossing in Ogilvy Street, Peakhurst.



AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT the request for a Pedestrian Crossing on Ogilvy Street, Peakhurst outside the entrance to Peakhurst West Public School be denied.

FURTHER THAT Peakhurst West Public School be advised of Council's decision.


REPORT DETAIL

Council has received a representation from the P&C Committee of Peakhurst West Public School requesting a pedestrian crossing in Ogilvy St Peakhurst.

The P&C have raised concern about the safety and well-being of children and parents as they cross the street, particularly during the morning and afternoons at school opening and closing times. The P&C have further advised that parents break the road rules by double parking whilst children run across the road to enter the school grounds.

Accordingly to resolve some of their road safety concerns, the P&C association has requested that Council consider installing a pedestrian crossing in Ogilvy Street, Peakhurst.

After consideration of the School's request the Traffic Advisory Committee has recommended, in part:


Accordingly the Traffic Section carried out a comprehensive traffic count at the subject location. The results of the surveys were as follows:


Time
No of vehicles
No of pedestrians
8.30am - 9.30am
176
143
3.00pm - 4.00pm
170
222

To justify the need for a marked pedestrian crossing on a public road there are certain warrants that must be established according to the RTA's Guidelines. These warrants are as follows:


The results of the surveys show that the subject location does not meet the required warrants to establish a pedestrian crossing in Ogilvy Street, Peakhurst.

However there are reduced warrants of 200 vehicles and 30 pedestrians per hour during two periods of a day, if the majority of the pedestrians are school children.

Yet still, the above location does not meet the required reduced warrants for vehicles per hour to warrant a pedestrian crossing at this location.

It is advised that the concerns raised by the P&C Committee of Peakhurst West Public School are not unique to Peakhurst West Public School, as it happens in most of the schools during morning pick up and drop off times and that the best way to manage this situation is for the school to raise awareness of the matter through the school's internal communication with the parents, to advise them to abide by the road rules for the safety of their children.


COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - TAC

THAT the request for a Pedestrian Crossing on Ogilvy Street, Peakhurst outside the entrance to Peakhurst West Public School be denied.

FURTHER THAT Peakhurst West Public School be advised of Council's decision.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

This report is tabled to report the outcome of a site meeting held to determine the need to extend the existing No Stopping restriction at the intersection of Anderson Road and Boundary Road, Mortdale to improve sight distances.


AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT the request to extend the existing statutory No Stopping restrictions at the intersection of Anderson Road and Boundary Road, Mortdale be denied.

THAT the "Keep Left" sign on the median island in Anderson Road, west of Boundary Road be removed to improve driver vision of oncoming traffic on Boundary Road.

FUTHER THAT Mr Mark Coure, MP, be advised of Council’s decision.


REPORT DETAIL

In April 2011, the Traffic Committee considered a request from Mr Mark Coure, Member for Oatley on behalf of a resident in Anderson Road, Mortdale to install No Stopping restrictions at the intersection of Anderson Road and Boundary Road, Mortdale.

The resident has advised that when vehicles are parked on Boundary Road, near its intersection with Anderson Road, Mortdale, it hinders the sight distance for traffic wanting to exit Anderson Road into Boundary Road, Mortdale, particularly when cars are parked along the south-western side of Boundary Road.

After considering the above information and due to the obscure nature of the intersection, the Traffic Advisory Committee recommended, in part:


The Traffic Advisory Committee’s recommendation was endorsed by Council at its meeting in April 2011. Accordingly, Council installed the statutory No Stopping restriction at the intersection of Anderson Road and Boundary Road, Mortdale.

The resident has again approached Mr Mark Coure's office requesting to extend the No Stopping restriction in Boundary Road, all the way to the driveway of 35-37 Boundary Road. Accordingly, Mr Coure, MP, has made further representations to Council requesting to reconsider the resident’s request.

An investigation into this matter including a sight inspection has revealed that the recently installed statutory No Stopping restrictions provide adequate sight distances for all turning movements at this intersection. As Boundary Road is a regional road with high percentage of long vehicles, motorists exiting Anderson Road into Boundary Road should do so with caution.

The request to extend the "No Stopping" restriction to the driveway of 35-37 Boundary Road is considered unnecessary loss of approximately two on street parking spaces at this location.

After considering the above information the Traffic Advisory Committee recommended, in part

Accordingly a site meeting was held at the intersection of Boundary Road and Anderson Road, Mortdale on 1st September 2011. Council's Manager of Infrastructure Planning, Council's Senior Traffic Engineer, NSW Police Service Sergeant and a representative from Mark Coure's Office attended the meeting. After an intensive site inspection it was concluded that the request to extend the No Stopping restriction at this location is not warranted.
