TAC130-11KINGS PLACE, BEVERLY HILLS - ROAD SAFETY CONCERNS AT STONEY CREEK ROAD
Report Author/sManager Infrastructure Planning, Mr O Wijayaratna
File10/398



EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council’s Parking Compliance Officers have requested to review the existing statutory No Stopping restrictions in Kings Place at Stoney Creek Road, Beverly Hills.



AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT the existing No Stopping restriction on the western side of Kings Place at Stoney Creek Road, Beverly Hills be extended by 5-metres.

FURTHER THAT that Council’s Parking Compliance Officers be advised of Council's decision.


REPORT DETAIL

Kings Place is a quiet residential street that runs off Stoney Creek Road. Council has installed a seagull island in Kings Place at Stoney Creek Road restricting traffic movements at the intersection to left-in and left-out only.

The island has reduced the width of traffic lanes in Kings Place at Stoney Creek Road to around 4 metres. The existing parking restriction of the eastern side of King Street (departure side) at this intersection is about 20 metres; however the parking restrictions on the western side (approach side) are only 10 metres. As a result, vehicles find it difficult to drive through between the parked cars and the traffic island, when a vehicle is parked just after the parking restrictions on the western side of Kings Place.

Accordingly, Council’s Parking Compliance Officers have requested to extend the parking restrictions on the western side of Kings Place at Stoney Creek Road, Beverly Hills to improve road safety. Officers also claim that it is quite dangerous to allow parking at this location as vehicles turning left from Stoney Creek Road do not have enough time to stop if a vehicle is parked at this location.

It is advised that according to Road Rules, drivers are required to leave minimum of 3 meters space for through traffic between the parked car and the traffic island/line markings. To comply with this requirement the existing parking restriction required to be extended minimum of 5 metres.



COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - TAC

THAT the existing No Stopping restriction on the western side of Kings Place at Stoney Creek Road, Beverly Hills be extended by 5-metres.

FURTHER THAT that Council’s Parking Compliance Officers be advised of Council's decision.

TAC131-1111 MASHMAN AVENUE AND 7 COLVIN AVENUE, KINGSGROVE – REVISED CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT PLAN
Report Author/sManager Infrastructure Planning, Mr O Wijayaratna
File10/DA-461:6



EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The developer of the Mashman Site (11 Mashman Avenue and 7 Colvin Avenue) in Kingsgrove has submitted a revised Construction Traffic Management Plan for Council’s approval.



AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT the revised Construction Traffic Management Plan for the proposed development at the Mashman Site (11 Mashman Avenue and 7 Colvin Avenue) in Kingsgrove be approved.

THAT the existing one hour 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 a dilapidation report for all the streets involved with the proposed truck routes be prepared by the applicant and submitted to Council before commencement of any works.

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

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


REPORT DETAIL

The developer of 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 workforce 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 (approx 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 demolition and construction stages of the project, the applicant submitted a Construction Traffic Management Plan (CTMP) in August 2011. The proposed CTMP was reported to the Traffic Advisory Committee in September 2011. The proposed major truck route during the construction period was:


The Committee raised serious concerns regarding the proposed right turning movement of trucks from Kingsgrove Road into Patterson Avenue. Committee considered this manoeuvre will severely impact the southbound general traffic as there are parked vehicles on eastern side kerb lane on Kingsgrove Road.

The proposed truck route for long vehicles carrying precast units was:

The Traffic Advisory Committee raised no objections to the precast unit transportation route.

To facilitate these truck routes the developer has requested Council approval to restrict parking on following streets:

After an extensive discussion, the Committee recommended in part:

Following this recommendation, the developer has submitted a revised CTMP for the above construction works by changing the major truck routes. The proposed truck routes in accordance with the revised CTMP are:

It is considered that the potential impacts of the revised CTMP on general traffic on Kingsgrove Road are tolerable.

The developer has not changed the proposed transportation route of precast units in the revised CTMP. Thus the developer is requesting Council approval to implement the parking restrictions requested on the original CTMP to facilitate the revised truck routes.


COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - TAC

THAT the revised Construction Traffic Management Plan for the proposed development at the Mashman Site (11 Mashman Avenue and 7 Colvin Avenue) in Kingsgrove be approved.

THAT the existing one hour 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 a dilapidation report for all the streets involved with the proposed truck routes be prepared by the applicant and submitted to Council before commencement of any works.

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

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

TAC132-11BARRATT STREET, HURSTVILLE – REQUEST TO REDUCE THE LENGTH OF THE BUS LAYOVER AREA
Report Author/sManager Infrastructure Planning, Mr O Wijayaratna
File11/793



EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received representation from the local businesses requesting to reduce the length of the existing short-term bus layover area in Barratt Street, Hurstville.


AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT the existing Bus Zone on the eastern side of Barratt Street, Hurstville for short-term bus layovers be reduced to 18 meters to accommodate only one bus and the existing half an hour parking zone adjoining the Bus Zone be extended accordingly.

FURTHER THAT that the State Transit Authority be advised of Council's decision.


REPORT DETAIL

It is advised that as part of the Bus Interchange Council agreed to provide a Bus Zone in Barratt Street for the STA’s 490 and 491 routes to encourage these buses to travel through the interchange. It was also suggested to remove the Bus Zone in MacMahon Street to improve flow of two way traffic in MacMahon Street.

However, later in consultation with the Ministry of Transport, the STA requested Council agreement to retain the existing Bus Zone in MacMahon Street to continue the STA’s 490 and 491 routes via MacMahon Street and bypass the Bus Interchange. Council agreed to leave the bus zone in MacMahon Street for 490 and 491 routes.

In late 2010, the Ministry announced the introduction of Metro (STA’s M41 or Veolia’s M91) buses. Accordingly, the STA requested to retain the proposed Bus Zone in Barratt to serve as a drop-off/short-term bus layover area for their M41 service.

Council strongly opposed the use of any kerb space within the City Centre for bus layovers. Accordingly, Council established a number of Bus Zones in Park Road and Queens Road as bus layover areas.

The STA argued that it is not practical to layover in Queens Road if a M41 bus has less than 10 minutes spare time between the arrival and departure times as a bus takes about 5 minutes to access the bus layover areas in Queens Road. Accordingly, Council agreed to provide a short-term bus layover area in Barratt Street, provided that buses do not layover at this location for more than 10-minutes.

Council monitored the usage of the subject short-term layover area during the past six months (since the opening the Interchange). Additionally, Council undertook a number plate survey during a two week period in September 2011to establish the bus layover pattern at the subject Bus Zone in Barratt Street. The results show that:


The results clearly demonstrate that more that 65% of the buses use the zone as a long-term layover area.

It is further advised that according to M41 Bus Time Table, buses operates with a frequency of:
Accordingly, there is no need to have more than one short-term parking space to cater for the above service as the maximum frequency of service is 10-minutes. If buses get bunched and arrived at Hurstville Interchange together, the second bus has to layover minimum of 20-minutes, thus can use one of the long-term layover areas in Queens Road.

Accordingly, it is recommended to reduce the existing short-term layover area in Barratt Street to a single space to improve the availability of short term parking spaces for the local community.



COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - TAC

THAT Council's proposal to reduce the existing Bus Zone on the eastern side of Barratt Street, Hurstville for short-term bus layovers to 18 meters to accommodate only one bus to provide additional half an hour parking adjoining the Bus Zone be denied.

TAC133-11BOORARA AVENUE, OATLEY – REQUEST TO EXTEND THE EXISTING PARKING RESTRICTIONS AT MIMOSA STREET, OATLEY
Report Author/sManager Infrastructure Planning, Mr O Wijayaratna
File11/1463



EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received a representation from a resident of Oatley requesting to extend the existing parking restrictions on Boorara Avenue at Mimosa Street, Oatley.



AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT a 25-metre No Parking restriction be installed on the western side of Boorara Avenue, Oatley at the bend outside property 2 to 2A Boorara Avenue, Oatley.

THAT the residents of 2 and 2A Boorara Avenue, Oatley be consulted before the installation of this parking restriction.

FURTHER THAT that the resident who made representation to Council be advised of Council's decision.


REPORT DETAIL

Boorara Avenue and Mimosa Street are narrow (both streets are about 7-metres wide) local residential streets with very low traffic movements. Boorara Avenue dips sharply before it intersects with Mimosa Street. As a result of the terrain and narrow road widths, sight distances for vehicles approaching the intersection is limited.

Council has installed statutory No Stopping restrictions at this intersection to improve sight distances for vehicles accessing Boorara Avenue from Mimosa Street.

The resident who made representations to Council states in part that:


An investigation into this matter reveals that:It is advised that according to the Roads and Traffic Authority accident data, no traffic accidents have been reported in the vicinity of the intersection of Boorara Avenue and Mimosa Street, Oatley during the 5-year period between January 2005 and December 2009.

Nevertheless, it is considered appropriate to install a 25-metre No Parking on the western side of Boorara Avenue, Oatley at the bend outside property 2 to 2A Boorara Avenue, Oatley to improve safety of road users at this location. One on-street parking space outside 2 Boorara Avenue, Oatley will need to be removed as a result of this measure.



COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - TAC

THAT a 25-metre No Parking restriction be installed on the western side of Boorara Avenue, Oatley at the bend outside property 2 to 2A Boorara Avenue, Oatley.

THAT the residents of 2 and 2A Boorara Avenue, Oatley be consulted before the installation of this parking restriction.

FURTHER THAT that the resident who made representation to Council be advised of Council's decision.

Report Author/sManager Infrastructure Planning, Mr O Wijayaratna
File10/2162



EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received a representation from resident raising road safety concerns at the recently constructed Hurstville Aquatic Centre exit driveway in Cambridge Street, Penshurst.

REPORT DETAIL

Council has received a representation from resident raising road safety concerns at the recently constructed Hurstville Aquatic Centre exit driveway in Cambridge Street, Penshurst. Her representation in part is as follows:

It is advised that the recently constructed carpark exit point of Hurstville Aquatic Centre is located within a 90 degree angle parking zone in Cambridge Street. As a result when the parking space to the right of the exit driveway is occupied, the sight line of drivers leaving the carpark become limited and most of the drivers finds it difficult to judge a safe gap to merge with traffic in Cambridge Street.

It is considered appropriate to remove at least one parking space to the right of the exit driveway of the Hurstville Aquatic Centre Carpark in Cambridge Street to improve sight line between the southbound vehicles on Cambridge Street and vehicles leaving the carpark.



COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - TAC

THAT one of the 90 degree angle parking spaces to the right of the exit driveway of the Hurstville Aquatic Centre Carpark in Cambridge Street, Penshurst be replaced with a painted kerb blister.

THAT a GIVE WAY sign and GIVE WAY line markings be installed in the exit driveway of the Hurstville Aquatic Centre Carpark at Cambridge Street, Penshurst

TAC136-11KINGSGROVE ROAD, KINGSGROVE – REQUEST FOR A RIGHT TURN RESTRICTION AT PATTERSON AVENUE AND MASHMAN AVENUE
Report Author/sManager Infrastructure Planning, Mr O Wijayaratna
File11/730



EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received a representation from one of the business owner in Kingsgrove Commercial Centre requesting to ban right turn movements from Kingsgrove Road into Mashman Avenue and Patterson Avenue, Kingsgrove.



AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT the requested right turn restrictions from Kingsgrove Road into Mashman Avenue and Patterson Avenue, Kingsgrove and possible AM and PM peak period parking restriction along Kingsgrove Road be considered as a part of the overall Traffic Management Plan for the Mashman Site Development.

FURTHER THAT that the business owner be advised of Council's decision


REPORT DETAIL

Kingsgrove Road is a regional road with a four lane undivided carriageway. It is aligned in a north-south direction and links Canterbury Road in the north with Stoney Creek Road in the south. It provides access to the M5 East Motorway and carries about 20,000 vehicles a day. Kingsgrove Road is one of the boundaries between Hurstville and Rockdale Local Government Areas; thus the western side of the road between Commercial Road and Stoney Creek Road comes under the jurisdiction of Hurstville City Council while the eastern side the road comes under the jurisdiction of Rockdale City Council.

One of the business owners of Kingsgrove Commercial Centre has made representations to Council requesting to ban right turn movements from Kingsgrove Road into Mashman Avenue and Patterson Avenue, Kingsgrove. He claims that he witness that in the mornings vehicles waiting to turn right into Mashman Avenue and Patterson Avenue forms long queues and is causing significant delays for through southbound traffic on Kingsgrove Road.

He requests Council to consider banning right turn movements from Kingsgrove Road into Mashman Avenue and Patterson Avenue, Kingsgrove and possibly installing ‘CLEAR WAY’ restriction on both sides on the road during am and pm weekday peak periods.

At present a No Stopping restriction operates on the eastern side of Kingsgrove Road during the afternoon peak period. As a result through traffic on Kingsgrove Road can use the kerb lane to manoeuvre around vehicles waiting to turn right into the above side streets.

It is considered that though the requested AM and PM parking restrictions along Kingsgrove Road will improve traffic flow, the impact on parking for local businesses will be considerable. Thus it will be difficult to get the community support for such a proposal.

However, it is considered that the requested right turn restrictions in Kingsgrove Road at Mashman Avenue and Patterson Avenue, especially during the morning peak period could improve peak period traffic congestion in the area.

It is further advised that Council in consultation with the Roads and Traffic Authority is considering a number of traffic management measures for the area as a part of the Mashman Development (the development at the old pottery site in Mashman Lane). Accordingly, it is considered appropriate to examine all the requested measures as part of this area wide traffic management measures to improve the efficiency of the road network.



COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - TAC

THAT the requested right turn restrictions from Kingsgrove Road into Mashman Avenue and Patterson Avenue, Kingsgrove and possible AM and PM peak period parking restriction along Kingsgrove Road be considered as a part of the overall Traffic Management Plan for the Mashman Site Development.

FURTHER THAT that the business owner be advised of Council's decision

TAC139-11MORGAN AND MARGARET STREET, KINGSGROVE - ROAD SAFETY CONCERNS
Report Author/sTraffic Engineering Officer, Ms A Kavanagh
File10/757



EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received a representation from a resident raising road safety concerns in Margaret Street, Kingsgrove at the intersection of Morgan Street.


AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT the request to close Morgan Street (westbound) at Moya Crescent, Kingsgrove be denied.

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


REPORT DETAIL

Council has received a representation from a resident raising road safety concerns in Margaret Street, Kingsgrove at the intersection of Morgan Street.

The resident is requesting Council to close Morgan Street at Moya Crescent in order to decrease traffic travelling westbound along Morgan Street. The resident states that it is difficult and dangerous for residents in Margaret Street, to turn right onto Morgan Street with the amount of traffic on Morgan Street.

TAC140-11MOYA CRESCENT, KINGSGROVE - REQUEST FOR A NO PARKING RESTRICTION AT THE CUL-DE-SAC
Report Author/sTraffic Engineering Officer, Ms A Kavanagh
File11/1633



EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received a representation from a resident in Moya Crescent, Kingsgrove requesting restrict parking at the cul-de-sac at Moya Crescent to ensure unhindered access for off-street parking facilities in the street.



AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT a "No Parking" restriction be installed around the cul-de-sac turning area in Moya Crescent, Kingsgrove.

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


REPORT DETAIL

Council has received a representation from a resident in Moya Crescent, Kingsgrove regarding cars parking around the Cul-de-sac area of Moya Crescent, Kingsgrove. She claims it is difficult and dangerous to manoeuvre around these parked cars when access off street parking facilities or a driver wish to make a u-turn.

Moya Crescent is a local road off Morgan Street, Kingsgrove and ends in a cul-de-sac configuration at the western end. It is advised that Moya Crescent, Kingsgrove is located within very close proximity to Kingsgrove Commercial Centre and railway station. As a result the demand for on-street parking in the area is very high.

At present a "No Parking" restriction operates along the eastern side of Moya Crescent as the width of the carriageway of the road is too narrow to accommodate parking on both sides of the street.

Site inspection revealed that cars park all around the cul-de-sac end of Moya Crescent, restricting the turning manoeuvres and causing difficulty for residents entering and exiting their vehicle crossings.

Installing a "No Parking" restriction around the "turning" area of the cul-de-sac in Moya Crescent, Kingsgrove will help ameliorate the resident’s safety concerns.



COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - TAC

THAT a "No Parking" restriction be installed around the cul-de-sac turning area in Moya Crescent, Kingsgrove.

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

TAC141-11PERCIVAL STREET, PENSHURST – REQUEST TO REMOVE THE EXISTING PARKING RESTRICTIONS
Report Author/sManager Infrastructure Planning, Mr O Wijayaratna
File09/767



EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received a representation from Wesley Uniting Church in Penshurst requesting Council to remove the existing parking restrictions on the approach side of a pedestrian crossing in Percival Street at Penshurst Street, Penshurst.



AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT the existing No Stopping restriction on the southern side (approach side) of Percival Street, Penshurst at the existing pedestrian crossing be reduced to 10 metres.

THAT the existing No Stopping restriction on the northern side (departure side) of Percival Street, Penshurst at the existing pedestrian crossing be reduced to 5 metres.

FURTHER THAT that Wesley Uniting Church in Penshurst be advised of Council's decision.



REPORT DETAIL

In 2009, Saint Declan’s Primary School in Penshurst made representations to Council requesting to upgrade the pedestrian refuges in Penshurst Street and Percival Street, Penshurst to marked foot crossings to improve safety of school children. Following a detail investigation (including pedestrian surveys) this request was considered by Traffic Advisory Committee in April 2010 and recommended Council to upgrade the subject pedestrian refuges to marked foot crossings.

Accordingly, in late 2010, Council upgraded the pedestrian facilities in Penshurst Street and Percival Street, Penshurst to marked foot crossings. As a part of the upgrade RTA requested Council to review and upgrade parking restrictions, line markings and other traffic devices (kerb blisters) on approach and departure sides of these facilities to comply with current standards.

Council has received a representation from Wesley Uniting Church, Penshurst requesting Council to remove the existing parking restrictions on the approach side of a pedestrian crossing in Percival Street at Penshurst Street, Penshurst. The Church is located at the corner of Percival Street and Penshurst Street, Penshurst. Church representative has stated in part that:


It is advised that the subject No Stopping restrictions in Percival Street were installed as part of the requirements stipulated by the RTA to comply with current requirements.

However Council has installed kerb blisters on approach side of the pedestrian crossing to reduce the number of trafficable lanes to one lane in each direction. According to the recently published 'RTA's Supplements for AustRoads Guide to Traffic Management' the length of the statutory 20-metre parking restriction can be reduced to allow parking provided that kerb blisters are installed on the approach side of a pedestrian facility.



COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - TAC

THAT the existing kerb blister at the pedestrian crossing in Percival Street at Penshurst Street, Penshurst be changed to a footpath extension to comply with RTA technical directions for reducing parking restrictions at Pedestrian facilities.

FURTHER THAT that Wesley Uniting Church in Penshurst be advised of Council's decision.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received a representation from Punchbowl Bus Company requesting Council to change the existing "No Stopping" zone in Forest Road at Tate Place, Lugarno to a No Parking zone.


AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT the existing "No Stopping" zone in Forest Road at Tate Place, Lugarno be changed to a Bus Zone.

THAT A 10-metre statutory No Stopping zone be installed after the proposed Bus Zone in Forest Road at Tate Place Lugarno

FURTHER THAT Punchbowl Bus Company be advised of Council's decision.


REPORT DETAIL

Council has received a representation from Punchbowl Bus Company requesting Council to change the existing "No Stopping" zone in Forest Road at Tate Place, Lugarno to a No Parking zone. Bus Company has advised that their Route 943 bus service terminate at this location and drivers are required to lay over there for short periods.

An investigation into this matter revealed that currently a No Stopping signs exist on the rock-face of the northern side embankment of Forest Road at this location. The subject area is wide and long enough to park a bus without obstructing through traffic flow on Forest Road and Tate Place.

Accordingly, it is considered appropriate to change this No Stopping area to a Bus Zone with statutory No Stopping restrictions at the intersection of Tate Place.


COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - TAC

THAT the existing "No Stopping" zone in Forest Road at Tate Place, Lugarno be changed to a Bus Zone.

THAT A 10-metre statutory No Stopping zone be installed after the proposed Bus Zone in Forest Road at Tate Place Lugarno

File08/2191



EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received a representation from a resident requesting Council to install painted hatched kerb blister on the road pavement between the vehicular crossings of 51 and 55 The Avenue, Hurstville.



AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT a painted hatched kerb blister be installed on the road pavement between the vehicular crossings of 51 and 55 The Avenue, Hurstville.

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


REPORT DETAIL

Council has received a representation from a resident requesting Council to install painted hatched kerb blister on the road pavement between the vehicular crossings of 51 and 55 The Avenue, Hurstville.

The Avenue is a very busy street with limited parking due to its close proximity to the Hurstville CBD, a large number of apartments and Westfield Shopping Centre.

An investigation into the resident’s request revealed that there is a small stretch of kerb and gutter (about 1.7 metres) exists between the vehicular crossings of the multi unit apartment buildings at 51 and 55 The Avenue.

The resident claims that drivers regularly park at this location making it difficult for the residents of apartments in 51 & 55 The Avenue to access their off-street parking facilities. The resident requests Council to install a No Stopping restriction to alleviate this problem.

In the past Council has installed painter kerb blisters in three other locations in The Avenue to alleviate similar problems. Accordingly, it is considered that a similar treatment at this location may alleviate this problem.



COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - TAC

THAT a no parking restriction be installed across the driveways of 51 and 55 The Avenue, Hurstville.

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

TAC144-11UNNAMED LANE, BEVERLY HILLS - REQUEST FOR PARKING BEHIND BEVERLY HILLS CINEMA
Report Author/sTraffic Engineering Officer, Ms A Kavanagh
FileD11/71086



EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received a representation from the Manager of Beverly Hills Cinema requesting Council to remove the parking restriction at the rear of the cinema in the unnamed laneway.



AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT the existing parking restrictions at the two car parking spaces in the unnamed lane at the rear of Beverly Hills Cinema be removed.

THAT delineation lines be installed at for two car parking spaces in the unnamed lane at the rear of Beverly Hills Cinema.

FURTHER THAT the Manager of Beverly Hills Cinema by notified of Council's decision.


REPORT DETAIL

The Beverly Hills Cinema is situated in a busy locality, close to Beverly Hills Commercial Centre, public transport, restaurants and residential buildings. Parking in this area can be difficult for those visiting the cinema.

Currently the cinema provides eight (8) off-street car parking spaces for customers and five (5) off-street parking spaces for its staff. The Manager of the cinema has informed us that the customers who usually park at the back of the cinema are elderly and these car spaces are convenient as they minimize the walking distance between vehicle and facility. The concrete slab provided for this off-street parking facility spans across Council land; usually this area can be considered as a part of the footpath. However, the property occupied by the Cinema is the only Lot along King Georges Road which has a road reserve along the lane frontage (Council land between boundary and the kerb lip). The rest of the properties in King Georges Road backing to this laneway have nor no road reserve adjoining the laneway. Thus employees and patrons of all adjoining landusers park up to the kerb line of the laneway.

At present a "No Parking" sign exists over an area of 2.5 x 32.5 in the laneway adjoining the boundary of the Cinema. Due to the position of this sign and with no immediate visible restrictions, customers of the cinema park on Council land without their knowledge (there are two extra spaces within this area). As a result these customers get fined for parking contrary to the parking signage.

In the cinema's carpark there is a hatched out parking space due to its location in front of a fire hydrant and all other car parking spaces are clearly marked with delineation lines. As the subject area has neither hatching nor delineation line markings, it is difficult to know that they are located in a restricted parking area.

It is considered as there is no footpath or a space for footpath along this access laneway, allowing parking at this location will not hinder through traffic movements in the laneway or access to the Cinama’s off-street parking facility. Accordingly, it is considered appropriate to lift the existing parking restriction at this location and delineate the two extra parking spaces to improve availability of parking for patrons of the Cinema.



COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - TAC

THAT the request to remove the existing parking restrictions at the two car parking spaces in the unnamed lane at the rear of Beverly Hills Cinema be denied.

THAT the subject two spaces be be hatched and amrked as "No Parking"

FURTHER THAT the Manager of Beverly Hills Cinema by notified of Council's decision.

Report Author/sTraffic Engineering Officer- Ms A Kavanagh
File09/2210



EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received a representation from a resident in Webb Street, Riverwood requesting Council to install "No Parking" along the residential (southern) side of Webb Street, Riverwood.


AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT the request to install "No Parking" along the southern side of Webb Street, Riverwood be denied.

THAT delineation lines be installed at the driveways in Webb Street, Riverwood subject to the consent of individual property owners.

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


REPORT DETAIL

Council has received a representation from a resident in Webb Street, Riverwood requesting Council to install "No Parking" along the residential (southern) side of Webb Street.

Webb Street runs along the railway corridor off Belmore Road towards Salt Pan Creek. The demand for parking on Webb Street is very high due the K2RQ Project related works along the rail corridor and its close proximity to Riverwood Railway Station and Riverwood Commercial Centre.

The resident claims that some motorists park too close to the driveways making it extremely difficult for residents to enter and exit their properties. He further states that on several occasions the residents is his street had to drive on the footpath to exit or enter their off-street parking facilities.

Removing parking entirely from the southern side of Webb Street would significantly decrease the amount of parking available for the residents as well as commuters.

However, In order to assist the residents of Webb Street it is recommended that Council consult with residents in Webb Street about delineation lines being painted over their driveways to encourage drivers to park correctly and avoid hindering access for residents.



COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - TAC

THAT the request to install "No Parking" along the southern side of Webb Street, Riverwood be denied.

THAT delineation lines be installed at the driveways in Webb Street, Riverwood subject to the consent of individual property owners.

TAC146-11YARRAN ROAD, OATLEY – REQUEST TO EXTEND THE EXISTING PARKING RESTRICTIONS
Report Author/sManager Infrastructure Planning, Mr O Wijayaratna
File11/1357



EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received a representation from a resident off Oatley requesting to extend the existing parking restrictions on the eastern side of Yarran Road, Oatley at the bend near properties 12 to 14 Yarran Road, Oatley.


AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT the existing No Stopping restriction on the eastern side of Yarran Street, Oatley be extended 25 metres north.

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


REPORT DETAIL

Yarran Road, Oatley is a quiet residential street in Oatley. The carriageway of Yarran Road is about 7 metres wide. As a result if vehicles are parked on both sides of the street, only one lane will be available for through traffic to travel in between the parked cars.

A sharp bend and a crest (vertical curve) exist on this street outside the properties 10 to 12 Yarran Road. As a result the available sight distances of approaching vehicles at this bend are limited.

Council has installed No Stopping restrictions on both sides of the street at the above bend to avoid potential accident resulting from lack of sight distances.

A resident in Oatley has approached Council requesting to extend the parking restriction on the eastern side of the road as parked vehicles north of this restriction forces through southbound traffic to blindly move towards the wrong side of the road towards oncoming traffic. Her representation in part is as follows:


An investigation into this matter revealed that sight distances for vehicles approaching from either side of this street at the subject bend are limited and the extension of existing parking restriction on the eastern side of Yarran Road at this bend would improve road safety.

There is no high demand for on-street parking on Yarran Road. It should be also noted that there are no residential properties on the eastern side of the street north of the existing parking restriction (only the rail corridor). Accordingly, there will be no significant impact on resident amenities by extending the subject parking restriction in Yarran Road.



COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - TAC

THAT the existing No Stopping restriction on the eastern side of Yarran Street, Oatley be extended 25 metres north.

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

Report Author/sTraffic Engineering Officer, Ms A Kavanagh
File10/1461



EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received a representation from a resident requesting "No Parking" restrictions be placed on the bend approaching the Boat Ramp and Lugarno Seafood Restaurant.



AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT the report by the Traffic Engineering Officer be received and noted.

FURTHER THAT the resident be informed of Council's decision


REPORT DETAIL

This matter was discussed in detail at the Traffic Advisory Committee in June 2011 following a representation from a resident requesting "No Parking" restrictions to be installed on the bend approaching the Boat Ramp and Lugarno Seafood Restaurant to improve road safety.

Forest Road at this location currently has double centre-lines and Solid Edge lines painted. When the boat ramp and the restaurant are busy, parking is limited and cars park on the southern side of the road. Traffic lanes are currently 3.2 and 3.1 metres wide and when a car is parked on the southern side of the road, the westbound traffic lane narrows to around 3.1 metres. The radius of the bend at this location is quite large providing adequate site distances for drivers to see oncoming traffic. Accordingly, it is considered that a parking restriction at this location is not warranted.

The Committee considered the possibility of relocating line markings at this location to provide a legal parking area for the customers of the restaurant. Accordingly, Committee recommended, in part:

Accordingly, Council’s Traffic Section investigated the possibility of reconfiguring the line markings at the subject location in Forest Road to allow a legal parking area. A survey on site revealed that currently the traffic lanes are only 3.0m wide, and the paved shoulder area is about 1.4m wide. Thus it is not possible to relocate the edge line to allow a 2.6m wide parking lane without reducing the width of traffic lanes well below the standards.




COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - TAC

THAT the report by the Traffic Engineering Officer be received and noted.

FURTHER THAT the resident be informed of Council's decision

TAC148-11FOREST ROAD, HURSTVILLE – REQUEST TO INSTALL A MAIL ZONE
Report Author/sManager Infrastructure Planning, Mr O Wijayaratna
File10/398



EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The Traffic Advisory Committee considered this matter in August 2011, following a representation from Australia Post requesting Council to establish a "Mail Zone" in Forest Road east of its intersection with Diment Way, Hurstville.



AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

To be determined by the Traffic Advisory Committee.


REPORT DETAIL

Australia Post has a red Street Posting Box (SPB) in Forest Road east of Diment Way, Hurstville. The subject SPB has always been in place and before the completion of the bus interchange the SPB was located within a Bus Zone. The Bus Zone has facilitated easier pick up of letters by the Australia Post vehicles.

However after the completion of the Bus Interchange, some Bus Zones, including the zone adjoining the subject SPB were removed and were replaced by short term parking. As a result the kerb section of Forest Road adjoining the SPB now has a ‘1/4P, 8.30am-6.00pm, Mon-Fri, 8.30am-12.30pm, Sat’ restriction. Due to high demand for parking in Forest Road this area is always parked out.

Accordingly, Australia Post made representations Council requesting Council to install a "Mail Zone" in Forest Road east of Diment Way, Hurstville to allow its staff to collect mail without any hindrance.

This matter was considered by the Traffic Advisory Committee in August 2011, where it was recommended:


The Committee considered that Australia Post vehicles could utilise the existing ‘No Parking, Police Vehicles Excepted’ zone on the southern side of Forest Road as the demand for parking in this area is very high. The Committee believed that it is hard to justify the removal of a parking space in this area as the mail zone will only be utilised for a couple of minutes twice a day.

Subsequently, Council endorsed the Traffic Advisory Committee’s recommendation and Australia Post was advised accordingly.

Australia Post has responded to Council’s decision stating that:

It is considered that:
Accordingly, it is believed thet the existing SPB can be relocated close to the existing No Parking area on the southern side of Forest Road without any major impact on the safety of clearance staff or the level of posting services.



COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - TAC

THAT Australia Post be requested to relocate the existing street Posting Box in Forest Road near Diment way to a location on the southern side of Forest ROad near the "No Parking - Police vehicles excepted zone"

TAC149-11HURSTVILLE PUBLIC SCHOOL - ROAD SAFETY CONCERNS
Report Author/sManager Infrastructure Planning, Mr O Wijayaratna
File10/849



EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received representations from the Parents and Citizens Association (P&C) of Hurstville Public School in regards to road safety concerns associated with the schools drop off and pick up times.



AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT Council’s Parking Compliance Officers be requested to regularly police Orange Street, Hurstville to enforce illegal parking behaviours of drivers.

THAT comprehensive traffic surveys be conducted in Orange Lane and Orange Street, Hurstville to establish the current traffic situation.

THAT a pedestrian survey be conducted in Orange Street, Hurstville at the corner of Orange Lane to examine whether the required warrants can be met to establish a pedestrian crossing at this location.

THAT investigations into the request to ban left turn movements from Orange Lane into Wright Street be differed until the RTA makes its decision on the appointment of a School Crossing Supervisor at this location.

FURTHER THAT Council Liu and the Principal of Hurstville Public School be advised of Council's decision.


REPORT DETAIL

The Traffic Advisory Committee has considered safety issues in Orange Street and Orange lane on numerous occasions in the past following representations from the school community and the residents of Orange Street, Hurstville.

Concerns raised by the school and the residents of Orange Street, Hurstville include:


To alleviate their road safety concerns, the residents and the school requested Council to consider the following measures:

Currently, the following traffic management measures are in place in Orange Street:
It is advised that during site inspections it was observed that the Parents of children at Hurstville Public School breach numerous road rules, especially during school pick-up times. Some of these breaches include parking within restricted areas, double/triple parking and making illegal U-turns.

During afternoon school pick-up times traffic flow in Orange Street become disordered due to narrow carriageway, parked vehicles and driver behaviour

The Hurstville Traffic Advisory Committee has considered the above information and recommended:

Accordingly Council's traffic section consulted the residents of Orange Street and Vine Street regarding the proposal to change Orange Street from two way to one way. The following four options were presented to the residents for consideration:

Residents were given three weeks to respond to the questionnaire and send their reply to Council in the provided reply paid envelopes.

The result of the consultation was as follows:

Option
Tally
1. Convert Orange Street to one-way southbound from Queens Road to Orange Lane and continue on to Orange Lane without changing the current status of Orange Lane.
4
2. Leave the current two-way status of Orange Street between Queens Road and Vine Street and introduce one-way traffic flow southbound from Vine Street to Orange Lane and continue on to Orange Lane without changing the current status of Orange Lane.
15
3. Convert Orange Street to one-way northbound, from Orange Lane to Queens Road and change the existing direction of traffic flow in Orange Lane from Wright Street to Orange Street.
3
4. Do Nothing
36
Total Number of responses
More than 60% of the residents who responded to the survey have opposed any changes to the existing status of the road network surrounding the school. During the survey period the traffic section received a lot of anxious phone calls from residents of Orange Street and Vine Street, worried about the effect of changing Orange Street to one way might have on accessing their properties. This is clearly reflected in the results of the survey.

Some of the written comments from the residents are as follows:
Accordingly, most of the local residents believe that it is not justifiable to change the current status of Orange Street to address a congestion issue that last less than 20 minutes during school day pick-up times.

Orange Street is wide enough to accommodate two-way traffic as per current Australian Standards and the Roads and Traffic Authority's guidelines. It is considered that (especially outside school times) the existing two-way traffic movement and parked cars in Orange Street act as natural hindrance for speeding traffic and deter through traffic movements in the area.

Hurstville Traffic Advisory Committee considered the results of the surveys and recommended, in part: Accordingly, Council installed a 20-metre No Stopping restriction on the eastern side of Orange Street at the Queens Road end to ensure that vehicles can access and leave Orange Street without any hindrance.

The school made further representations to school in November 2010 raising similar road safety concerns. The Principal of Hurstville Public School advised that the P&C is planning to conduct a survey of all families to establish numbers and patterns of movement around the school. The school further advised that it will provide Council this information once it is collated.

The school’s road safety concerns and their wish to conduct a survey of the families who have children at the school were considered by the Traffic Advisory Committee in December 2010, where it was recommended, in part:

Following the above recommendation Council’s Senior Traffic Engineer had a number of discussions including inspections with the Principal of the school regarding traffic issues. One of the concerns raised during these discussions was possibility of getting a ‘School Crossing Supervisor’ for the existing pedestrian crossing in Wright Street at Orange Lane, Hurstville. This matter was referred the RTA’s School Safety Section for investigation as it comes under the RTA’s School Road Safety Section.

In August 2011, the Principal of the school forwarded the results of the above survey and the results are as follows:

Additionally, following observations were made during recent investigations into the schools road safety concerns:


AM – Drop off times


PM – Pick up times
The results of the school surveys and the above observations reveal that the traffic situation in the morning drop-off times is much calmer than the afternoon pick-up times. Most of the traffic problems are created due to lack of driver discipline and lasts only about 10 to 15 minutes during the school finishing time. It is also revealed that the existing 65 metres long No Parking zone in Orange Lane is barely used by parents to drop-off or pick-up their children.

Following the above surveys, the Principal of the school requested Council Traffic officers to attend a meeting of the P&C Association of the school to discuss existing traffic related issues at the school. Accordingly Council Officers and Councillor Liu attended a P&C meeting on the 20th September 2011.

Council Officers explained to the Committee in detail the action Council has taken to date to improve traffic situation surrounding the school. Council Officers requested the school and the P&C to advise the parents that they can use the existing 65 metres long No Parking zone in Orange Lane to drop-off or pick-up their children.

The Principal advised the Committee that the RTA has contacted her and informed that they are undertaking a survey (pedestrian) at the existing pedestrian crossing in Wright Street to examine whether the required warrants can be met to employ a ‘School Crossing Supervisor’ at this location.

During the meeting the parents raised a number of road safety concerns. These include:
To address their concerns, parents requests Council to consider following traffic control measures: It is advised that 40k road pavement markings are maintained by the RTA and according this request has been referred to the RTA for appropriate action.Council Officers advised the parents of the school that Council has undertaken surveys in 2010, and the results shows that most of the vehicles (more than 85%) travel well below 40 km/h, thus it is difficult to justify the installation of speed humps in either Orange Street or Orange Lane.Parents were advised that Council has conducted surveys in the past to examine whether the required RTA warrants can be met to justify the installation of pedestrian crossing at this location. Parents stated that the number of school children at the school has increased and this matter should be re-examined as it is quite dangerous for children to cross the street at this location. The existing footpath on Orange Lane is about 2m wide while the width of the carriageway is only about 5.5m. As there is no additional road reserve, the carriageway will become narrower will not comply with current standards to allow parking on the laneway if the footpath is widened. Additionally, if a pedestrian safety fence is installed along the laneway to stop school children spilling out onto the carriageway, parking required to be banned.It is considered, that the traffic situation at this intersection will become regulated if the RTA provides a School Crossing Supervisor for the subject crossing. Accordingly, it is considered this matter should be differed until the RTA makes its decision on the appointment of a School Crossing Supervisor at this location.



COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - TAC

THAT Council’s Parking Compliance Officers be requested to regularly police Orange Street, Hurstville to enforce illegal parking behaviours of drivers.

THAT comprehensive traffic surveys be conducted in Orange Lane and Orange Street, Hurstville to establish the current traffic situation.

THAT a pedestrian survey be conducted in Orange Street, Hurstville at the corner of Orange Lane to examine whether the required warrants can be met to establish a pedestrian crossing at this location.

THAT investigations into the request to ban left turn movements from Orange Lane into Wright Street be differed until the RTA makes its decision on the appointment of a School Crossing Supervisor at this location.
