Extraordinary Local Traffic Committee Meeting

 

FRIDAY 9 SEPTEMBER 2016

 

By circulation

 


 


Function of the Local Traffic Committee

Background

Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) is legislated as the Authority responsible for the control of traffic on all NSW Roads. The RMS has delegated certain aspects of the control of traffic on local roads to councils. To exercise this delegation, councils must establish a local traffic committee and obtain the advice of the RMS and Police. The Inner West Council Local Traffic Committee has been constituted by Council as a result of the delegation granted by the RMS pursuant to Section 50 of the Transport Administration Act 1988.

 

Role of the Committee

The Local Traffic Committee is primarily a technical review and advisory committee which considers the technical merits of proposals and ensures that current technical guidelines are considered. It provides recommendations to Council on traffic and parking control matters and on the provision of traffic control facilities and prescribed traffic control devices for which Council has delegated authority. These matters are dealt with under Part A of the agenda and require Council to consider exercising its delegation.

In addition to its formal role as the Local Traffic Committee, the Committee may also be requested to provide informal traffic engineering advice on traffic matters not requiring Council to exercise its delegated function at that point in time, for example, advice to Council’s Development Assessment Section on traffic generating developments. These matters are dealt with under Part C of the agenda and are for information or advice only and do not require Council to exercise its delegation.

 

Committee Delegations

The Local Traffic Committee has no decision-making powers. The Council must refer all traffic related matters to the Local Traffic Committee prior to exercising its delegated functions. Matters related to State Roads or functions that have not been delegated to Council must be referred directly to the RMS or relevant organisation.

The Committee provides recommendations to Council. Should Council wish to act contrary to the advice of the Committee or if that advice is not supported unanimously by the Committee members, then the Police or RMS have an opportunity to appeal to the Regional Traffic Committee.

 

Committee Membership & Voting

Formal voting membership comprises the following:

·            one representative of Council as nominated by Council;

·            one representative of the NSW Police from each Local Area Command (LAC) within the LGA, being Newtown, Marrickville, Leichhardt and Ashfield LAC’s.

·            one representative from the RMS;  and

·            State Members of Parliament (MP) for the electorates of Summer Hill, Newtown, Heffron, Canterbury, Strathfield and Balmain or their nominees.

 

Where the Council area is represented by more than one MP or covered by more than one Police LAC, representatives are only permitted to vote on matters which effect their electorate or LAC.

Informal (non-voting) advisors from within Council or external authorities may also attend Committee meetings to provide expert advice.

 

Committee Chair

Council’s representative will chair the meetings.

 

Public Participation

Members of the public or other stakeholders may address the Committee on agenda items to be considered by the Committee. The format and number of presentations is at the discretion of the Chairperson and is generally limited to 3 minutes per speaker. Committee debate on agenda items is not open to the public.

T0916 Item 2      Australia Street & Eton Street, Camperdown - Proposed Kerb Extension & Line Marking Design Plans
(Stanmore Ward/Newtown)

SUMMARY

Detailed design plans have been finalised for the proposed traffic calming improvements in Australia Street and Eton Street, Camperdown as part of Council’s Footpath Capital Works Program. The proposal for a kerb extension with a new kerb and gutter alignment and associated line markings will improve pedestrian safety and traffic conditions at this location.

 

Traffic Committee Discussion

 

The Committee members agreed with the Officer’s recommendation.

 

Officer’s Recommendation

 

THAT the detailed design plan of the kerb extension with a new kerb and gutter alignment and associated line markings at the intersection of Australia Street and Eton Street, Camperdown (as per the attached design plan No. 6112) be APPROVED.

 

Traffic Committee Recommendation

 

THAT the Officer’s recommendation be adopted.

For motion: Unanimous

 

 

T0916 Item 3      Jersey Street & Moyes Street, Marrickville - Proposed Traffic Calming Design Plans
(Marrickville Ward/Summer Hill)

SUMMARY

Detailed design plans have been finalised for the proposed drainage improvements,

landscaping and associated signs and line marking works at the intersection of Jersey Street

and Moyes Street, Marrickville as part of Council’s Drainage Facility Capital Works Program.

The proposal for three new storm water inlets, a new kerb and gutter alignment and associated signs and line markings will improve drainage amenity and traffic conditions at this location.

 

Traffic Committee Discussion

 

Public speaker: Ms Estelle Cuiuli

Public speaker: Ms Jo Tomlinson

 

Two speakers from Jersey Street attended the meeting in objection to the proposal; they requested that the matter be deferred for further consultation with the affected residents.

The following concerns were raised in regards to the proposed civil works at the intersection of Jersey Street and Moyes Street, Marrickville:

·    The houses in the vicinity of the proposed civil works do not have off street parking spaces and struggle to find parking close to their property. As such, loss of two parking spaces is not supported.

·    Improving access for heavy vehicles will encourage more frequent use of the street by trucks which is not supported by the residents.

·    Traffic calming, improving access for garbage trucks and reduce flooding in the street have been mentioned as the primary reasons for the proposed civil works. Long term residents of the street are unclear about these problems and would like to be further consulted before a decision is made.

 

Two late submissions were circulated at the meeting on behalf of two residents objecting to the proposed Traffic Calming designs with the following comments:

·         Residents do not support the proposal due to loss of parking. Close proximity of the street to Marrickville Railway Station, Greek Orthodox Church and McNeilly Park influences the increased parking demands in the street.

·         The proposal is not supported due to loss of two parking spaces. Concerns were raised regarding devaluing residential property as an outcome of this proposal. Resident believes this proposal will not prevent vehicles from speeding around the corner at the intersection. 

 

Officer’s Recommendation

 

THAT the detailed design plans for drainage improvements, landscaping and associated signs and line marking works at the intersection of Jersey Street and Moyes Street, Marrickville (as per the attached design plan No. 6102) be APPROVED.

 

Traffic Committee Recommendation

 

THAT the Item by deferred for further consultation with the affected residents.

For motion: Unanimous

 

 

T0916 Item 4      Daburi Lane, St Peters - Shared Zone Proposal Final Design Plan
(Marrickville Ward/Heffron)

SUMMARY

An application has been received from Traffix on behalf of Thirdi Group for the provision of a

one-way ‘Shared Zone’ in the new laneway named Daburi Lane to be constructed, as part of

an approved mixed-use development at 44-56 May Street and 19 Hutchinson Street, St

Peters.

 

Council raises no objection to the proposed ‘Shared Zone’ and the proposed one-way laneway treatment which will connect May Street and Hutchinson Street, St Peters subject to all associated costs being borne by the applicant and the ‘Shared Zone’ proposal being referred to the Roads and Maritime Services for consideration and approval.

 

The final ‘Traffic Signage Plan’ for Daburi Lane has been submitted for consideration. It

incorporates previous Council and RMS recommendations and requested design adjustments, which have now been integrated into the revised consultant’s traffic report for the ‘Shared Zone Application – 44-56 May Street and Hutchinson Street, St Peters’.

 

It is recommended that the Traffic Signage Plan be approved subject to concurrence of RMS

and the applicant be requested to submit a Traffic Management Plan (TMP) to the RMS for the ‘No Right Turn’ into May Street.

 

Traffic Committee Discussion

 

The Committee members agreed with the Officer’s recommendation.

THAT:

 

1.         the Traffic Signage Plan (20601-001-C-008-P-08) for the proposed ‘Shared Zone’ and the proposed one-way laneway named Daburi Lane to connect May Street and Hutchinson Street, St Peters (as part of an approved mixed-use development at 44-56 May Street and 19 Hutchinson Street, St Peters) be approved and submitted to the RMS for their concurrence; and

2.         a Traffic Management Plan for the ‘No Right Turn’ into May Street, St Peters be prepared by the applicant and be submitted to the RMS for consideration and approval.

 

Traffic Committee Recommendation

 

THAT the Officer’s recommendation be adopted.

For motion: Unanimous

(Marrickville Ward/Hefferon)

SUMMARY

Design plans have now been finalised for the construction of new footpaths, kerbs and a

driveway crossing on the east side of Gleeson Avenue between Unwins Bridge Road and 3

Gleeson Avenue to improve access for pedestrians.

 

Traffic Committee Discussion

 

The Committee members agreed with the Officer’s recommendation.

 

Officer’s Recommendation

 

THAT the detailed design for the new footpaths, kerbs and a driveway crossing on the east side of Gleeson Avenue between Unwins Bridge Road and 3 Gleeson Avenue, Sydenham   (as per the attached design plan No. 6135) be APPROVED in principle with the concurrence of the RMS.

T0916 Item 6      Proposed Traffic Calming & Angle Parking Revised Design Plans - Yule Street, Dulwich Hill
(Ashfield Ward)

SUMMARY

In 2011 Council adopted a Local Area Traffic Management (LATM) plan for Dulwich Hill South which recommended a series of projects which have been accelerated into the current capital works program.

 

Design plans have been finalised for a speed cushion, kerb blister and angled parking

treatment along Yule Street, Dulwich Hill as part of Dulwich Hill South LATM Scheme.

 

Traffic Committee Discussion

 

Public speaker: Mr Greg Smith

 

One speaker from Yule Street attended the meeting in objection to the Traffic Calming and angle parking proposal and advised the following:

·         He raised concerns regarding the level of speeding in the street when he first moved to the area. Nothing was done for 16 years following his request and the proposed four speed humps are excessive in his view.

·         He submitted an application to construct a driveway at his property at 37 Yule Street, Dulwich Hill, but his application was rejected by Council.

·          Many residents in the street have off-street parking but choose to park on the street    which reduces his family’s ability to park close to their property. With three teenagers and an elderly mother, parking close to the property is very important to his family.

·         Angle parking proposal will make it impossible to temporarily double park whilst unloading groceries and helping the elderly mother in and out of the car. As such, he is objecting to the proposal.

 

The Traffic members were advised that the proposed angle parking will increase the number of on-street parking spaces and hence improve parking availability. Parking occupancy Surveys done in Yule Street show the occupancy levels are not high enough to support installation of Residential Parking Restrictions.

 

The Committee members agreed with the Officer’s recommendation.

 

Officer’s Recommendation

 

THAT the design plans for Yule Street,  Dulwich Hill incorporating 90 degrees angle parking, four landscape traffic islands and associated signage and line markings (ATTACHMENT - design plans No 6049) be APPROVED.

 

Traffic Committee Recommendation

 

THAT the Officer’s recommendation be adopted.

For motion: Unanimous

 

 

T0916 Item 7      Temporary Road Closure to Dismantle a Tower Crane within the Adjacent Building Site at 23-29 Addison Road, Marrickville
(Ashfield, Stanmore & Marrickville Wards/Summer Hill & Newtown)

SUMMARY

An application has been received from Addison Projects Pty Ltd for the temporary full road

closure of Addison Road (between Cook Road and Enmore Road) Marrickville for a period of

10 hours from 8pm Wednesday 1st to 6am Thursday 2nd February 2017, in order to stand a

mobile crane on Addison Road for the dismantling of a tower crane within the adjacent building site. It is recommended that the proposed temporary road closure be approved, subject to the conditions outlined in this report.

 

Traffic Committee Discussion

 

The State Transit Authority representative raised concerns regarding the proposed hours of closure as it conflicts with STA bus service to Martin Place. STA representative advised the following:

·         Bus services use this route every 20 minutes commencing at 3:43am until 2am. He requested that Addison Road be reopened by 5am (at the latest) to minimise major interference with bus services.

·         Less bus services are scheduled on Sunday and Monday evenings. These days are preferred for the proposed works.

·         Left Turn out of Cook Road into Addison Road will be difficult due to the configuration of the intersection and the existing pedestrian refuge; STA requests Traffic Control at this intersection.

T0916 Item 10    Elswick Street, Macauley Street, Carlisle Street & Marlborough Street Leichhardt - Proposed Traffic Calming/Intersection Treatment
(Leichhardt/Balmain)

SUMMARY

Since early 2015, Council has been investigating the traffic conditions in Elswick Street,

Leichhardt. A number of residents have expressed concerns regarding the speed of vehicles

and accidents that have occurred in Elswick Street, between Allen Street and Marion Street.

 

In order to improve intersection safety and reduce the speed of traffic, it is proposed to install

intersection treatments in Elswick Street in the form of raised traffic islands at the following

locations:

·      Intersection of Macauley Street

·      Intersection of Carlisle Street

·      Intersection of Marlborough Street

 

It is recommended that the Concept Plans for Elswick Street Traffic Calming/Intersection

Treatment be supported, subject to further amending the design to preserve parking on the

western side of Elwick Street, Leichhardt.

 

 

Traffic Committee Discussion

 

Public speaker: Mr Meletios Dragatsis

 

One speaker from Elswick Street attended the meeting in support of the proposed intersection treatments and advised the following:

·         There has been 5 accidents in the street over the past few years. People are encouraged to drive faster due to Elswick Street being wide and straight.

·         The speed radar has not been successful in reducing the average speed. With children playing on footpath close to the intersection there is a fear for the residents’ and general publics’ safety.

 

The Roads and Maritime Services representative advised that all refuge islands are to comply with RMS technical directions (2m wide). He suggested that consideration be given to implementing  edge line marking and BB lines all along Elswick Street, to encourage lower speeds.

 

The following comments were advised in an email by the representative of Bike Leichhardt:

·         Rumble bars on painted islands can be dangerous for cyclists as they are hard to see. A cyclist could think they could ride there to avoid an overtaking car for example, or might be forced there by an overtaking car.

·         3.4 m lanes are not advised on bike routes as they fall in the 3.2 to 3.7 m width that motorists often think is wide enough to pass in. A 3 m traffic lane would be better at signalling to motorists not to pass, and possibly have a better slowing effect than 3.4 m.

·         Consideration be given to marking an uphill bike lane between Carlisle Street and Marion Street and also Carlisle Street and Allen Street.

·         There is a bike logo with turn arrow in Elswick just S of Carlisle St. This may give cyclists the wrong idea to make the turn from the left of the lane and is too close to the intersection in any case. Maybe a bigger turn arrow, further back and placed more to the right in the lane.

 

Committee members were advised that detailed designs for the proposed intersection treatments will be brought back to the Traffic Committee for approval, taking on board the advice from RMS and Bike Leichhardt. 

 

Officer’s Recommendation

 

THAT:

1.         the Concept Plans for Elswick Street Leichhardt - Traffic Calming/Intersection Treatment and associated signage and line markings (Attachment 1) be supported; and

2.         the estimated cost of $20,000 be included in the 2017/18 Draft LATM Budget for these works.

 

 

Traffic Committee Recommendation

 

THAT:

1.    the Concept Plans for Elswick Street, Leichhardt - Traffic Calming/Intersection Treatment and associated signage and line markings (Attachment 1) be supported, subject to:

a)  The proposed refuge islands in Macauley Street, Carlisle Street and Marlborough Street complying with RMS technical directions.

b)   Considering the comments received from Bike Leichhardt.

2.    the estimated cost of $20,000 be included in the 2017/18 Draft LATM Budget for these works.

3.    Final detailed designs of the proposed intersection treatments being presented to the LTC for review.

 

For motion: Unanimous

SUMMARY

Detailed design plans have been finalised for the proposed relocation of a ‘Bus Zone’ on Illawarra Road, Marrickville as part of the Marrickville Railway Station upgrade. The proposal for a new ‘Bus Zone’ with a new kerb alignment and associated signs and line markings will improve pedestrian amenity and traffic conditions at this location.

Design plans

The proposed scope of work includes the following:

·   Construct a new kerb and gutter alignment on the eastern side of Illawarra Road and reconstruct existing kerb ramps to kerb and footpath.
