EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received a representation from a resident in Beverly Hills raising road safety concerns in Warilda Lane, Beverly Hills.

 

 

AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT the existing No Parking restriction in Warilda Lane, Beverly Hills be extended on both sides of the lane from Tooronga Terrace to Warraroong Street, Beverly Hills.

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

 

 

REPORT DETAIL

Council has received a representation from a resident in Beverly Hills raising road safety concerns in Warilda Lane, Beverly Hills.

The resident has advised that her premise is located on Warrawee Place with access to the off street parking facility of her property located in Warilda Lane, Beverly Hills.  The resident has further advised that due to the narrowness of Warilda Lane, when a car is parked across the lane from her garage, the resident finds it difficult to exit and or enter her off street parking facility in Warilda Lane, Beverly Hills.

It is advised that Warilda Lane, Beverly Hills runs between Tooronga Terrace and Ponyara Road and measures approximately 4m in width.

It is further advised that parking on both sides of Warilda Lane from Tooronga Terrace up to the unnamed lane, which is located approximately 45m north of Tooronga Terrace is restricted with a combination of No Parking and No Stopping restrictions. On-street parking within the remainder of Warilda Lane is not restricted.

The resident’s garage is located in the section of Warilda lane where it is not restricted.  Accordingly the resident has requested Council to extend the existing No Parking restriction up to Warraroong Street, Beverly Hills.

The requested parking restriction will improve access to all the off-street parking facilities located in Warilda Lane between Tooronga Terrace and Warraroong Street, Beverly Hills.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received a representation from a resident living in Milford Road, Peakhurst raising road safety concerns in his street.

 

 

AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT a comprehensive traffic survey be conducted in Milner Road, Peakhurst to establish the current traffic situation and to identify if there is a need to install traffic calming devices in Milner Road, Peakhurst.

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

 

 

REPORT DETAIL

Council has received a representation from a resident living in Milford Road, Peakhurst raising road safety concerns in his street.

The resident has advised that he lives in Milford Road, Peakhurst near the intersection of Milford Road and Milner Road, Peakhurst.

The resident has advised that vehicles speed down Milner Road and turn left onto Milford Road at dangerously high speeds as there are no ‘Give Way’ or ‘Stop’ restrictions for traffic approaching the intersection of Milford Road and Milner Road, Peakhurst. Similarly, vehicles speed down Milford Road and turn right onto Milner Road ‘cutting’ the corner.

The resident has stated that the abovementioned driver behaviour is a serious road safety concern as the existing park at the corner of Milner Road and Milford Road, Peakhurst is very popular with many young children in the neighbourhood.

Accordingly the resident has requested Council to consider installing speed calming devices in Milner Road, Peakhurst.

In this regard, it is considered appropriate to conduct a detailed traffic survey in Milner Road, Peakhurst to establish the current traffic situation and to identify if there is a need to install traffic calming device in Milner Road, Peakhurst.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received a representation from Botany Gardens Nursing Home, requesting Council to replace the existing ‘No Parking, 8am-8pm, Mon-Fri’ restriction outside their premises in Botany Street, Carlton with a Disabled Parking zone.

 

AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT the existing ‘No Parking 8am-8pm, Mon-Fri’ restriction in Botany Street outside Botany Gardens Nursing Home at 88-90 Botany Street, Carlton be replaced with a Disabled Parking zone.

FURTHER THAT Botany Gardens Nursing Home be advised of Council’s decision.

 

 

 

REPORT DETAIL

Council has received a representation from Botany Gardens Nursing Home, requesting Council to replace the existing ‘No Parking, 8am-8pm, Mon-Fri’ restriction outside their premises in Botany Street, Carlton with a Disabled Parking zone.

The Director of the Nursing Home has advised that the existing ‘No Parking 8am-8pm, Mon-Fri’ restriction outside their premises in Botany Street was installed by Council following a request from the nursing home to accommodate Ambulance’s to safely transport patients from the nursing home.

The Director has further advised that the nursing home has recently installed an Ambulance Bay at the back of the Nursing home in Xenia Avenue.  Accordingly the Director has requested Council to replace the existing ‘No Parking, 8am-8pm, Mon-Fri’ restriction in Botany Street with a disabled parking zone to improve availability of accessible parking for their visitors with mobility difficulties.

Site inspection has revealed that there is a 15metres long ‘No Parking, 8am-8pm, Mon-Fri’ restriction in Botany Street outside the nursing home. 

The requested change is fully contained within the frontage of the nursing home and will not have any impact on the existing on-street parking situation in Botany Street, Carlton.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

A representation was received from Councillor Michelle Stevens on behalf of the residents requesting Council to install afternoon Clearway restriction on the western side of Boundary Road from Stanley Street to Forest Road, Peakhurst.

 

AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT the affected business and property owners be consulted proposing to install a ‘No Stopping 3pm-7m, Mon-Fri’ restriction on the western side of Boundary Road between Stanley Street and Forest Road, Peakhurst.

THAT the results of the consultation be brought back to the Traffic Advisory Committee for consideration.

FURTHER THAT Councillor Stevens be advised of Council’s decision.

 

 

REPORT DETAIL

A representation was received from Councillor Michelle Stevens on behalf of the residents requesting Council to install afternoon Clearway restriction on the western side of Boundary Road from Stanley Street to Forest Road, Peakhurst to improve northbound traffic flow.

The resident has advised that during the afternoon peak time, often parked cars along the western side of Boundary Road between Stanley Street and Forest Road, Peakhurst impede the flow of northbound traffic creating traffic congestion during the afternoon peak times.

It is advised that the western side of Boundary Road, between Forest Road and Stanley Street, does not have continuous parking restrictions except for some staggered No Stopping restrictions to allow unhindered access to adjoining properties.

It is further advised that Council cannot install Clearway restrictions along any road as ‘Clearway’ restrictions are strictly reserved to the Roads and Maritime Services; however Council can install other restrictions such as No Parking or No Stopping which has the same effect as a clearway, in terms of clearing the laneway of parked vehicles.

Most of the land uses on the western side of Boundary Road between Forest Road and Stanley Street are industrial and these businesses benefit from the availability of existing unrestricted parking along this section of Boundary Road.

Accordingly it is recommended to consult all the affected business/property owners proposing to install a ‘No Stopping, 3pm-7pm, Mon-Fri’ restriction on the western side of Boundary Road, between Stanley Street and Forest Road, Peakhurst,

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received a representation from a resident in Burke Street, Oatley requesting Council to consider installing delineation line marking at the intersection of Burke Street and Freeman Avenue, Oatley.

 

AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT a Give-Way restriction be installed for traffic on Freeman Avenue at the intersection of Freeman Avenue and Burke Street, Oatley.

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

 

 

REPORT DETAIL

Council has received a representation from a resident in Burke Street, Oatley requesting Council to consider installing delineation line marking at the intersection of Burke Street and Freeman Avenue, Oatley.

The resident has advised that many people use the intersection of Burke Street and Freeman Avenue, Oatley to do ‘U Turns’, occasionally at high speeds generating a lot of noise.

The resident feels that the lack of line marking to properly delineate the intersection of Burke Street and Freeman Avenue is encouraging this kind of driver behaviour.  Accordingly the resident has requested Council to install double centre linemarking in Burke Street and Freeman Avenue to act as a traffic calming measure.

It is advised that the installation of double centre linemarking in Burke Street or Freeman Avenue is not considered feasible as the suggested linemarking will disallow kerbside parking since through traffic are not allowed to cross the double centre lines to pass parked vehicles.

The resident has also requested Council to install speed humps in the vicinity of the subject intersection to discourage speeding. However, an investigation revealed that the subject site would not meet the required warrants for number of vehicles and speed profile to justify the installation of a speed hump.  Additionally, speed humps could impact the amenities of the adjoining residential properties due to increased traffic noise and air pollution levels. 

However, it is considered appropriate to install a Give-way restriction for traffic on Freeman Avenue at the intersection of Burke Street and Freeman Avenue to regulate traffic at this intersection.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received a representation from Mr David Coleman, MP, Member for Banks on behalf of one of his constituents requesting Council to install a Bus Zone in Gardinia Street, Narwee.

 

AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT 10m Statutory No Stopping restriction followed by a 20m Bus Zone be installed outside 2A and 2B Gardinia Street, Narwee.

FURTHER THAT Mr David Coleman, MP, Member for Banks be advised of Council’s decision.

 

 

REPORT DETAIL

Council has received a representation from Mr David Coleman, MP, Member for Banks on behalf of one of his constituents requesting Council to install a Bus Zone in Gardinia Street, Narwee.

The resident has advised that vehicles illegally park at the existing Bus Stop in Gardinia Street opposite Narwee Baptist Church preventing the bus from properly pulling into the Bus Stop to drop off and pick up passengers.  Accordingly the resident has requested Council to install a formal Bus Zone at the existing Bus Stop to discourage illegal parking at this bus stop.

It is advised that the subject Bus Stop is located on the northern side of Gardinia Street, east of the intersection of Gardinia Street and Baumans Road, Narwee. 

According to the NSW Road Rules, it is illegal to park a vehicle within 20m on the approach side and 10m on the departure side of a Bus Stop. However some road-users are not aware of the Road Rule and park illegally too close to Bus Stops.

Accordingly it is recommended to install 10m Statutory No Stopping restriction followed by a 20m of Bus Zone in Gardinia Street at the subject Bus Stop to reinforce the Road Rules.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received a representation from Australian Nursing Home Foundation requesting Council to install a 15 minutes parking restriction at their nursing home at 8-12 Romani Avenue, Hurstville to allow for quick turnover of parking for pick-up and drop-off of residents of the nursing homes.

 

 

AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT 6m long, 15 minute parking zone be installed in Romani Avenue, Hurstville outside the frontage of the Australian Nursing Home Foundation at 8-12 Romani Avenue, Hurstville.

FURTHER THAT the Australian Nursing Home Foundation be advised of Council’s decision.

 

 

REPORT DETAIL

Council has received a representation from Australian Nursing Home Foundation requesting Council to install a 15 minutes parking restriction at their nursing home at 8-12 Romani Avenue, Hurstville to allow for quick turnover of parking for pick-up and drop-off of residents of the nursing homes.

The Australian Nursing Home Foundation advised that due to the difficulty in mobility of some of their residents they would like to apply for one parking space outside of their premises to be restricted to 15 minutes parking to allow for quick turnover of parking to pick up and drop off residents of the nursing home.

It is advised that the nursing home is located at 8-12 Romani Avenue and it has a street frontage of approximately 70m.  Accordingly, the requested 6m long, 15-minute parking zone would not adversely impact the amenities of the residential properties in the street.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received a representation from a resident in Hodge Street, Hurstville requesting Council to install a No Parking restriction outside their residential property.

 

AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT a 17m long ‘No Parking’ restriction be installed outside 2-4 Hodge Street, Hurstville.

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

 

 

REPORT DETAIL

Council has received a representation from a resident in Hodge Street, Hurstville requesting Council to install a No Parking restriction outside their residential property.

The resident has advised that there are three residential properties at 2-4 Hodge Street, Hurstville.  The resident occupies one of these properties.  Each of these properties has their own driveway crossing and these crossings are separated by less than 4.5m kerb-spaces.  Accordingly, only a small car can fit into the parking spaces in between the subject driveway crossings.  The resident has stated that regularly large vehicles park within these spaces blocking access to her property.

Council had installed delineation line marking at these driveway crossings to discourage illegal parking; however the resident has advised that this hasn’t helped.

Accordingly the resident has requested Council to install a No Parking restriction outside the frontage of 2-4 Hodge Street, Hurstville to restrict parking across the vehicular crossings and short kerb spaces that exist between the vehicular crossings.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received a representation from Ms Cherie Burton, MP, Member for Kogarah on behalf of one of her constituents requesting that traffic be allowed to turn right from Ponyara Road into King Georges Road, Beverly Hills.

 

 

AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT the request to allow right turn movement from Ponyara Road into King Georges Road, Beverly Hills be referred to the Roads and Maritime Services for consideration.

FURTHER THAT Ms Cherie Burton, MP, Member for Kogarah be advised of Council decision.

 

REPORT DETAIL

Council has received a representation from Ms Cherie Burton, MP, Member for Kogarah on behalf of one of her constituents requesting that traffic be allowed to turn right from Ponyara Road into King Georges Road, Beverly Hills.

It is advised that the intersection of Ponyara Road and King Georges Road is controlled by a set of traffic lights and comes under the care and control of the Roads and Maritime Services.  At present right turn movements from Ponyara Road into King Georges Road are not allowed; only left turn and straight through movements for traffic on Ponyara Road at King Georges Road are allowed.

It is further advised that King Georges Road is a state road under the control of the Roads and Maritime Services.  King Georges Road carries a very high volume of traffic and accordingly have priority over all side streets.

It is considered necessary to add another phase to the existing traffic lights at the intersection of Ponyara Road and King Georges Road to allow the requested right turn movements from Ponyara Road into King Georges Road. This in turn will delay through traffic flow on King Georges Road and cause further congestion in King Georges Road, especially during weekday peak periods.  Accordingly, it is considered not feasible to allow the requested right turn movement from Ponyara Road into King Georges Road, Beverly Hills.

However as King Georges Road and signalised intersections come under the care and control of the Roads and Maritime Services (RMS), it is recommended to forward this request to RMS for consideration.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received a representation from a resident requesting Council to consider installing a ‘2P, 8:30am-6:00pm, Mon-Fri, 8:00am-12:00pm, Sat’ restriction on both sides of Phillip Street, Riverwood.

 

 

AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT the request for a ‘2P, 8:30am-6:00pm, Mon-Fri, 8:00am-12:00pm, Sat’ restriction on both sides of Phillip Street, Riverwood be denied.

THAT the statutory 10 metre ‘No Stopping’ restrictions be signposted at the intersection of Phillip Street and Coleridge Street, Riverwood.

THAT the residents of Phillip Street, Riverwood be consulted in regards to the installation of delineation lines over their driveways.

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

 

REPORT DETAIL

Council has received a representation from a resident requesting Council to consider installing a ‘2P, 8:30am-6:00pm, Mon-Fri, 8:00am-12:00pm, Sat’ restriction on both sides of Phillip Street, Riverwood.

The resident has claimed that the street is being used by train commuters all day and residents and/or visitors to the street do not have on street parking. The resident has also raised concerns in regards to vehicles parking too close to the intersection and over driveways in Phillip Street, Riverwood.

Phillip Street, Riverwood is a cul-de-sac off Coleridge Street, Riverwood and is in close proximity to Riverwood CBD and Riverwood Train Station. Currently, there is a No Parking restriction around the cul-de-sac end of the street and the remaining area allows for approximately 10 unrestricted car parking spaces. The section of Coleridge Street adjacent to Phillip Street, Riverwood is also unrestricted.

It is considered that the installation of a ‘2P, 8:30am-6:00pm, Mon-Fri, 8:00am-12:00pm, Sat’ would not benefit the residents as the restriction will apply to residents of the street as well and would not allow them to park in the street all day. Timed restrictions are usually reserved to aid the economic prosperity of businesses and not to increase on street parking for residents. Therefore, it is not considered appropriate to install the requested 2P restrictions in Phillip Street, Riverwood.

Upon site inspection it was revealed that the cars are parked in close proximity to the intersection of Phillip Street and Coleridge Street, Riverwood. Therefore it is considered appropriate to signpost the 10 metre Statutory No Stopping restrictions at the intersections to reinforce the Road Rule.

Additionally, it was revealed that Phillip Street is quite a narrow street measuring approximately 6 metres wide. When vehicles are parked on either side of the street it could be difficult for vehicles to manoeuvre in and out of driveways in the street. It is therefore considered appropriate to consult the affected residents offering to install delineation lines over driveways to discourage drivers from parking too close to the driveways.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received a representation from a resident raising road safety concerns in Cook Lane, Mortdale between Newman Street and Victoria Avenue, Mortdale.       

 

AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT a comprehensive traffic survey be conducted in Cook Lane, Mortdale between Newman Street and Victoria Avenue, Mortdale.

THAT the results of the traffic survey be reported back to the Traffic Advisory Committee for consideration.

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 Cook Lane, Mortdale between Newman Street and Victoria Avenue, Mortdale.       

The resident has advised that vehicles speed in this section of the laneway and use it as a shortcut to avoid Morts Road traffic. In addition to these problems, the resident states that it is even more dangerous as this is the only section of Cook Lane, Mortdale which is two way.

To ascertain the resident’s road safety concerns, it is recommended to conduct a comprehensive traffic survey in Cook Lane, Mortdale to establish the current traffic situation and to identify if there is a need to install traffic calming device in Cook Lane, Mortdale.
