Local Traffic Committee Meeting

 

THURSDAY 6 APRIL 2017

 

10:00am

 


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.

Technical Standards

Australian Standard AS2890.5-1993 “On-Street Parking” states the following in regards to the provision of parking for people with a disability:

Parallel parking spaces shall not be marked as disabled spaces, nor included in the count of spaces available for people with disabilities unless –

i.          A 3.2m wide space can be provided, e.g. by indenting the space into the footpath area; and

ii.          Kerb ramps as shown in Figure 4.2(a) are also provided”.

 

 

It should be noted that due to the limited width of streets around the Marrickville LGA, it is often difficult to comply with these requirements for the parking space dimensions. This may also result in the loss of some adjacent on-street parking spaces.

Mobility parking spaces are primarily intended for on-street and off-street parking at destinations, such as in commercial/retail areas and public car parks near hospitals, schools and public transport facilities where multiple usages can be expected. They were generally not intended for points of origin such as reserving on-street parking.

A mobility parking space is not intended for the sole use of one applicant, but rather a shared facility that can used by all authorised persons having an RMS mobility permit.

 


 

 

PUBLIC CONSULTATION

A notification letter has been sent to the applicants informing them of the application process and as part of the assessment they will be considered at this meeting.

 

CONCLUSION

It is recommended that ‘Mobility Parking' spaces be approved as the applicant’s properties do not have an off-street parking facility and/or the applicants condition warrants the provision of the space.

It should be noted that the proposed mobility parking spaces are not for the sole use of the applicant and may be used by other authorised persons.

Item No:    T0417 Item 4

Subject:     PREMIER STREET, MARRICKVILE - EXTENSION OF EXISTING BB LINE MARKING AT PREMIER STREET, MARRICKVILLE TO IMPROVE PEDESTRIAN SAFETY
(MARRICKVILLE WARD/ SUMMERHILL ELECTORATE / MARRICKVILLE LAC)
  

File Ref:     17/6022/29808.17         

Prepared By:     Idris Hessam - Graduate Civil Engineer Traffic Services  

Authorised By:  Joe Di Cesare - Manager Design and Investigation

 

SUMMARY

A concern has been raised from NSW Police regarding extension of unbroken dividing line from pedestrian crossing (outside Ferncourt Public School) to Thornley Street, Marrickville as motorists are conducting U-turns at a location where there are many vehicle movements and some pedestrian activity during school pick up and drop off times.

 

It is recommended that the existing “BB” (double unbroken) line marking be extended 30 metres eastward from the rear of property no. 74 Premier Street to the rear of the property no 92 Premier Street, Marrickville to prevent motorists from making U turns and to improve pedestrian safety.

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

THAT:

1.   a proposal to extend the existing “BB” line marking restrictions by 30 metres eastward from the rear of property No.74 Premier Street to the rear of property No.92 Premier Street, Marrickville be APPROVED to deter U turn movements and to improve pedestrian safety.

 

 

 

BACKGROUND

NSW Police have requested the extension of unbroken dividing line from pedestrian crossing (outside Ferncourt Public School) to Thornley Street, Marrickville as motorists are conducting U-turns at a location where there are many vehicle movements and some pedestrian activity during school pick up and drop off times.

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

The cost of extending the existing “BB” line marking restriction by 30 metres eastward is approximately $300 and can be met form Council’s signs and line markings budget.

 

OFFICER COMMENTS

Currently there is existing “BB” line marking in Premier Street extending westward by 20 metres from its intersection with Thornley Street and 60 metres eastward from its intersection with McGowan Avenue, Marrickville leaving a 30 metre length of unmarked “BB” line marking in the middle. Concerns have been raised the police and residents that motorists are often making U turns in the unmarked section of Premier (near the school boundary). The extension of “BB” line marking will connect the existing sections of “BB” line marking and deter the motorists from making a U turn at this location.


 

 

PUBLIC CONSULTATION

 

 

CONCLUSION

In order to deter U turns in a dangerous location and to improve pedestrian safety, it is recommended that the existing 'BB’ line marking restriction be extended by 30 metres eastward from the rear of property No.74 Premier Street to the rear of the property No.92 Premier Street, Marrickville.

Item No:    T0417 Item 7

Subject:     DENMAN AVENUE, HABERFIELD – PROPOSED NEW RAISED PEDESTRIAN CROSSING  OUTSIDE HABERFIELD PUBLIC PRIMARY SCHOOL. 
(LEICHHARDT WARD/SUMMER HILL ELECTORATE/ASHFIELD LAC)
  

File Ref:     17/6022/30902.17         

Prepared By:     Boris Muha - Traffic and Projects Engineer  

Authorised By:  John Stephens - Traffic Manager

 

SUMMARY

Council proposes to construct a new raised pedestrian (zebra) crossing in Denman Avenue, Haberfield, between Bland Street and Yasmar Avenue, Haberfield, as part of the NSW Government's $5 Million funding Program for pedestrian infrastructure around schools.

 

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

That the construction of a new raised pedestrian (zebra) crossing in Denman Avenue, between Bland Street and Yasmar Avenue, Haberfield, as per the attached drawing No. 2586-1-CON-002 be supported.

 

 

 

BACKGROUND

The Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) early in 2016 wrote to various Councils informing them of the State Government’s announcement in February 2015 of a $5 Million commitment to improve pedestrian infrastructure around schools over a three year grant program.

 

Councils were invited (through discussion and consultation with various schools) to apply for funding of projects under the grant, and provide the RMS with relevant information in support of their application for improved pedestrian infrastructure around schools.

 

A new raised pedestrian crossing in Denman Avenue will enhance pedestrian safety outside the Haberfield Public Primary School. The school/P&C Association (on-behalf of parents) and the local community have previously and continually request for a safe and proper road crossing in Denman Avenue outside the school.

 

A report was raised in the last Traffic Committee meeting advising of successful projects funded by the RMS under the grant. The above project was included amongst those approved under the grant.

 

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

Funding of approximately $40,800 from the RMS is currently allocated for the proposed works as part of the Council’s 2017/2018 Capital Works Project. Additional costs will be incurred for street floodlighting. A budget adjustment would be done via a separate report to Council.

 


 

OFFICER COMMENTS

The crossing in Denman Avenue is proposed to be located to the left hand side of the school frontage and main gate access in Denman Avenue. The crossing will be predominately used by parent/carers and children attending the school.

 

The former Ashfield Council early in 2016 made a grant application to the RMS for a proposed  new raised pedestrian crossing in Denman Avenue. The proposed works will enhance safety and access for pedestrians of the school community and general public.

 

The proposed work includes:

·    A raised pedestrian (zebra) crossing, with kerb islands, kerb ramps and ‘Children Crossing’ signage located to the left hand side of the gate entrance to the school, east of Yasmar Avenue

·    Removal of kerb ramps on both side of Denman Avenue at the corner of Yasmar Avenue and installation of fencing to divert pedestrians to the crossing

·    Floodlights for the crossing

·    ‘No Stopping’ restrictions on both sides of the crossing

·    Removal of a speed hump as this will be replaced by the raised pedestrian (zebra) crossing.

 

An unconventional crossing facility (with an at- grade road path between pram ramps and a speed hump to the side) originally existed at the corner of Denman Avenue and Yasmar Avenue–see figure 2. This was since removed to avoid confliction and confusion with the right of way between pedestrians and traffic at the intersection.

 

The new crossing is proposed approximately 20-25 metres west from the intersection of Yasmar Avenue, away from the conflict of the intersection, and in appropriate sight lines of traffic. The crossing is closer to Yasmar Avenue to cater for the main pedestrian desire line movements to and from Yasmar Avenue. The crossing is to the left of the school gate entrance also to serve pedestrian desire line movements to and from Bland Street.

 

An existing mid-block speed hump will be removed in Denman Avenue in lieu of the raised crossing in close proximity to the speed hump.   

 

The kerb islands are elongated for additional (road narrowing) traffic calming and provides a feature in enhancing the presence of the crossing.

 

Four parking spaces (2 to the north side and 2 to the south side of Denman Avenue) would need to be removed to accommodate the physical crossing and ‘No Stopping’ clearances to the crossing. It is considered, through site observations, that there is still adequate on-street parking in the vicinity of the crossing.  

Denman Avenue is not a bicycle route or bus route.

 


 

 

 

     

                                                                    

 

 

PUBLIC CONSULTATION

Resident consultation was carried out in the vicinity of the crossing, with around 50 letters distributed in the area. Three (3) separate responses were received from resident/parents in support of the proposal. A petition (249 signatures) from the Haberfield Public School P&C Association, and on-line change.org petition (128 signatures) were received, both in support of the crossing. Parents in particular commented for the need of a crossing in Denman Avenue for the safety of children attending the school. The current WestConnex activity in the area and detouring of traffic through the local streets has also raised the need and support of a crossing in Denman Avenue.       

 

CONCLUSION

It is recommended that a new raised pedestrian (zebra) crossing be constructed in Denman Avenue, between Bland Street and Yasmar Avenue, Haberfield as per the attached plan drawing No. 2586-1-CON-002. The proposed works will enhance safety and access for pedestrians of the school community and general public.

Item No:    T0417 Item 8

Subject:     Dulwich Hill North LATM Draft Concept (MARRICKVILLE & ASHFIELD WARD/SUMMER HILL ELECTORATE/MARRICKVILLE LAC)  

File Ref:     14/5141/26845.17         

Prepared By:     Felix Liu - Traffic Management Planner   

 

SUMMARY

For the Committee to consider the findings of the ‘Draft’ Dulwich Hill North Local Area Traffic Management (LATM) study and plan’s recommendations. 

 

A copy of this report is provided separately (ATTACHMENTS).

 

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

THAT:

 

1.   the draft Dulwich North LATM study and plan recommendations listed in Table A within this report be endorsed for community consultation; and

 

2.   the draft report be placed on Public Exhibition, providing a minimum 28 days for submissions.

 

 

 

 

BACKGROUND

The Inner West (Marrickville) Community Strategic Plan (CSP) – Our Place Our Vision 2023 has key outcomes:

 

·    Inner West’s roads are safer and less congested

·    Inner West’s streets, lanes and public spaces are sustainable, welcoming, accessible and clean

·    The community walks, ride bikes and use public transport.

 

Local Area Traffic Management (LATM) is one of the main ways Council works to achieve these outcomes. The objective of local area traffic management planning is to investigate and review the performance of the existing Local Area Traffic Management (LATM) and recommend proposed LATM works. The original Dulwich Hill North LATM was undertaken in 2002.

 

As part of the Tomorrow’s Dulwich Hill project to create a 10-year integrated plan, in 2014, Inner West Council engaged a consultant to review and undertake the LATM study and develop a plan for the Dulwich Hill North LATM area. The final plan’s works will be integrated with the actions in the Tomorrow’s Dulwich Hill 10-year plan currently in development.

 

DISCUSSION

This report sets out an assessment of the traffic conditions within the Dulwich Hill North LATM area and includes the following:

 

·    Assessment of the traffic volumes, heavy vehicle percentages and vehicle speeds based on the traffic survey results;

·    Identification of the locations not satisfying Environmental Performance criteria;

 

·    Analysis of accident statistics for the 5 year period from January 2008 to December 2013;

·    Review of the community’s complaints and concerns raised in the community questionnaire in relation to traffic and safety issues;

·    Review of intersection performance for traffic management;

·    Assessment of the effectiveness of the existing LATM measures and ensure their compliance to the current standard;

·    Identification of further opportunities to reduce through traffic volumes and speed of traffic on local streets to address public amenity;

·    Identification of pedestrian and cyclist improvements; and

·    Development of conceptual LATM proposal options.

 

The recommendations provided in this LATM Plan align with the traffic management principles outlined in the Inner West (Marrickville) Integrated Transport Strategy (ITS), 2007.

 

Following the assessment of the Pedestrian, Cyclist and Traffic Calming Advisory Committee (PCTCAC), the draft report will be forwarded to Council for approval to undertake community consultation.

 

Tomorrow’s Dulwich Hill (TDH) is a new way of planning, designing and building Dulwich Hill’s streets and public places that put people and place at the centre. This LATM will be integrated as part of the TDH to create a 10-year plan for Dulwich Hill area.

 

COMMUNITY CONSULTATION

 

The suggested LATM treatment options were informed by engagement with internal and external stakeholders. The community engagement within Inner West (Marrickville) Local Government Area (LGA) included the Imagining Marrickville survey stakeholder workshops and community meetings.

 

·    The survey was conducted during July and August 2014, receiving 159 responses from the Dulwich Hill Area.

 

·    A traffic and parking issues plan was prepared for Tomorrow’s Dulwich Hill Stage 1 Learn and Share and posted on the “Your Say Inner West (Marrickville) website for residents and other stakeholders to discuss traffic issues in an open forum. The forum was open to the public from late March 2015 to early May 2015 and received 38 responses.

 

·    A consultation session of Tomorrow’s Dulwich Hill with the Denison Road Group was held on 26 November 2015 to workshop parking options for Denison Road.

 

·    An internal workshop was held on 23 November 2016 with Council’s staff to evaluate and prioritise the preferred LATM options.

Local Traffic Committee Meeting

6 April 2017

 

 

DATE:                 23 November 2016

 

SUBJECT:         Dulwich hill North LATM option evaluation and prioritisation

 

FILE REF:           14/5141

 

TRIM No.:          134987.16

 

1.     Background

As part of the Tomorrow’s Dulwich Hill (TDH) project, Inner West (Marrickville) Council commissioned a traffic consultant to undertake the Local Area Traffic Management (LATM) study for the Dulwich Hill North LATM area. Once completed, this LATM concept will feed into the TDH initiative.

 

The draft Dulwich Hill North LATM study report was prepared in April 2016. A series of LATM treatment options were recommended. In order to provide an indication to the TDH project team to identify the preferred options to fit into the TDH project, a project priority meeting was held to discuss and evaluate the preferred LATM treatment options from the traffic management perspective.

 

This memo documents the process of evaluation and provides the prioritisation of the preferred LATM options in accordance with the treatments prioritisation recommended by the consultant and the outcome of the discussion during the project priority meeting.

2.     Project priority meeting

The meeting was held on Monday 31 October 2016 with the attendees of:

 

·          Felix Liu, Traffic Management Planner

·          George Tsaprounis, Coordinator Traffic Engineering Services

·          Joe Di Cesare, Manager Design and Investigation

·          Ryan Hawken, Coordinator Asset Planning

 

The following items have been discussed during the meeting:

·          The draft LATM proposals are currently identified as options rather than preferred treatments, which was what was requested for the TDH project.

·          Currently multiple options may apply to one location addressing similar traffic issues and not all of these options should be implemented together.

·          The LATM treatment options recommended in the draft report and the evaluation of the preferred options are from a traffic management perspective.

3.     Option evaluation process

3.1.   Denison Road

3.1.1.  Traffic Issues

Main traffic issues raised in community consultation for Denison Road include:

·          Traffic volume and speeds; and

·          Lack of pedestrian facilities as a result of the high traffic volume.

3.1.2.  LATM Options

The LATM treatment options recommended in the study report to address the above traffic issues include:

 

·          AM No Left Turn restrictions from New Canterbury Road into Denison Road and Dulwich Street

·          Rumble bars or fully mountable median islands at the roundabout of Denison Road and Eltham Street

·          Reconstruction of existing flat top speed humps with street narrowing features, including kerb blisters or single lane narrowing.

·          Intersection priority changed to Pigott Street and Dulwich Street intersections.

·          Installation of kerb extension and/or raised intersection treatment at Pigott Street/Denison Road intersection

·          Installation of kerb extension and/or modified T-intersection at Dulwich Street/Denison road intersection

·          Mid-block road closure on the southern side of the Denison Road to the north of Constitution Road

·          Conversion of Lewisham Street to One-way northbound direction only between The Boulevarde and New Canterbury Road with Left-in-left-out restriction at Denison Road.

·          Linemark 2.1 metre wide parking lanes.

·          Installation of on-road bicycle symbols as bike routes LR02 and RR09.

3.1.3.  Traffic Conditions

The traffic survey results indicated Denison Road carries approximately 2,500 vpd, which is below the desirable capacity of a Collector Road (3,000vph). However, during the AM peak hour (8:00am to 9:00am) the traffic volumes exceed the maximum peak hour limit of 500pvh.

 

Figure 1 - Denison Road Traffic Volume Profile

3.1.4.  Recommendations and Discussion

·          Full road closure is not recommended, as:

1.         Traffic volumes are within the amenity level for a Collector road;

2.         Turn-around movement cannot be accommodated as the narrow road width; and

3.         Any road closure would push through traffic, avoiding the closure, onto other adjacent local streets, such as Grove Street.

 

·          Consider two-way one-lane slow point at mid-block north of Davis Street to discourage through traffic by increasing travelling time.

 

·          The raised intersection at Pigott St and Denison Rd intersection is unsuitable, due to the safety concern of pedestrians potentially using raised intersection devices as pedestrian crossing facilities.

 

·          Reconstruction of speed hump with kerb blisters is not recommended, as:

1.         This would provide marginal benefit to address speeding issues comparing to the existing flat top speed humps.

2.         Significant impact on on-street parking provision, unless other benefits can be achieved, such as greening.

 

·          Fully mountable median islands are preferred at the roundabout over the rumble bars, as fully mountable islands will last much longer time than the rumble bars.

 

·          The modified T-intersection is unsuitable as the significant impact on on-street parking.

 

·          Other options stay as recommended in the study report.

3.2.   Constitution Road

3.2.1.  Traffic Issues

Main traffic issues raised in community consultation for Constitution Road include:

·          Lack of pedestrian facilities across Constitution Road near Arlington Light Rail Stop.

·          Safety concerns about turning movements at the New Canterbury Road/Constitution Road intersection.

·          Speeding issues.

3.2.2.  LATM Options

The LATM treatment options recommended in the study report to address the above traffic issues include:

 

·          Installation of Fixed radar speed display.

·          No Right Turn restriction from Old Canterbury Road

·          Rumble bars along centerline between Denison Road and Williams Parade

·          Rumble bars or fully mountable median islands at the roundabout of Denison Road and Constitution Road with pedestrian refuge at northern leg.

·          Installation of threshold treatment at Old Canterbury Road with kerb extensions and/or tactile surface.

·          Reconstruction of existing flat top speed humps (near h/n 202 and 174) with kerb blisters.

·          Installation of parking lane marking

·          Installation of on-road bicycle symbols as bike routes RR09 and LR18.

3.2.3.  Traffic Conditions

The traffic survey results indicated Constitution Road carries approximately between 3,000 and 4,300 vpd, with the peak period volume over 600 vph, which exceed the desirable capacity of a Collector Road (3,000vph) and maximum limit of 500 vehicles/hr. Vehicle speeds along Constitution Road varies between 35km/h and 46km/h, which is below the speed limit. A total of 3 car-car crashes were reported on Constitution Road.

 


Figure 2 - Constitution Road Traffic Volume Profile

3.2.4.  Recommendations and Discussion

·          Fully mountable median islands are preferred at the roundabout of Constitution Rd/Denison Rd over the rumble bars, as fully mountable islands will last much longer time than the rumble bars. Pedestrian refuge at north of Denison Road/Constitution Road roundabout may be considered integrated with the roundabout median island to improve pedestrian crossing safety.

 

·          Rumble bars along the curved section between Denison Road and Williams Avenue is recommended.

 

·          Pedestrian refuge at Williams Parade/Constitution Road roundabout is recommended.

 

·          Right turn ban from Old Canterbury Road is not recommended, as:

1.         The benefit of discourage through traffic is marginal;

2.         It would push traffic into other local streets, which would have adverse impacts on local area.

 

·          Other options stay as recommended in the study report.

3.3.   Arlington Street

3.3.1.  Traffic Issues

There was no significant traffic issue raised by the community

3.3.2.  LATM Options

The LATM treatment options recommended in the study report include:

 

·          Edge line marking

·          Installation of on-road bicycle symbols as bike route RR09

·          Mid-block Speed humps/cushions

·          Four-way intersection treatments, including kerb extension and raised intersection.

3.3.3.  Traffic Conditions

The traffic survey results indicated Arlington Street carries approximately 730vpd, which is below desirable volume for local road. Vehicle speeds along Arlington Street were recorded in 51.6km/h, which exceeds the speed limit. A total of 2 car-car crashes were reported on Arlington Street.

3.3.4.  Recommendations and Discussion

·          Intersection narrowing at Dixson Avenue and Abergeldie Street intersections is considered, as:

1.         The current wide carriageway of Arlington Street encourages higher vehicle speeds.

2.         Drainage needs to be considered.

 

·          Change of intersection priority to Abergeldie Street, in order to reduce vehicle speeds.

3.4.   Dixson Avenue (and Abergeldie Street)

3.4.1.  Traffic Issues

There was no significant traffic issue raised by the community.

3.4.2.  LATM Options

The LATM treatment options recommended in the study report include:

 

·          Threshold treatment on Dixson Avenue at Old Canterbury Road

·          Mid-block speed humps/cushions

·          Four-way intersection treatments, including kerb extension and raised intersection

3.4.3.  Traffic Conditions

The traffic survey results indicated Dixson Avenue carries low traffic volume between 600 vpd and 800 vpd. Vehicle speeds along Dixson Avenue were recorded in 52.9km/h, which exceeds the speed limit.

 

Traffic data was not available at Abergeldie Street. However, given the similar condition as Dixson Avenue, it is assumed that similar traffic issue may occur on Abergeldie Street.

 

There is no crash reported for both streets between 2008 and 2013.

3.4.4.  Recommendations and Discussion

·          Intersection narrowing at Dixson Avenue and Abergeldie Street intersections, as:

1.         The current wide carriageway of Arlington Street encourages higher vehicle speeds.

2.         Drainage needs to be considered.

 

·          Speed humps/cushions are preferred in Dixson Avenue to reduce vehicle speed.

 

·          Intersection narrowing and threshold treatment on Dixson Avenue at Old Canterbury Road is recommended to reduce entry speed and improve pedestrian priority.

 

·          Speed humps/cushions may be required as the assumptions above.

3.5.  Union Street

3.5.1.  Traffic Issues

There was no significant traffic issue raised by the community.

3.5.2.  LATM Options

The LATM treatment options recommended in the study report include:

 

·          Threshold treatment at New Canterbury Road

·          Reconstruction of existing speed hump with road narrowing

·          Modified-T intersection treatment at Abergeldie Street/Union Street intersection

·          Installation of on-road bicycle symbols as bike route LR18

3.5.3.  Traffic Conditions

The traffic survey results indicated Union Street carries low traffic volume between 600 vpd and 800 vpd. Vehicle speeds along Union Street were recorded in approximately 45km/h, which is below the speed limit.

3.5.4.  Recommendations and Discussion

·          Existing LATM treatments are considered efficient.

 

·          Modified-T intersection treatment is not recommended due to marginal traffic benefit. Intersection narrowing can be considered unless other benefits can be achieved, such as greening.

 

·          Intersection narrowing is preferred in Abergeldie Street to reduce vehicle speed.

3.6.   Windsor Road

3.6.1.  Traffic Issues

·          Traffic congestion along Old Canterbury Road resulting in rat running along Gelding and Windsor Road.

3.6.2.  LATM Options

BACKGROUND

The Marrickville Community Strategic Plan (CSP) – Our Place Our Vision 2023 has key outcomes:

·    Marrickville's roads are safer and less congested

·    Marrickville's streets, lanes and public spaces are sustainable, welcoming, accessible and clean

·    The community walks, ride bikes and use public transport.

 

One element of delivering the above outcomes is the development of Local Area Traffic Management (LATM) study and plan including recommendations.

The objective of local area traffic management planning is to investigate and review the performance of the existing Local Area Traffic Management (LATM) schemes and recommend proposed LATM works. The Henson LATM study was originally completed in 1998 and reviewed in 2004.

 

 

PUBLIC EXHIBITION

The draft Henson LATM report was placed in Public Exhibition from 15 November to 14 December 2016 via newspaper advertisement, Your Say Inner West website and a mail-out. Letters were sent to 2,200 residents and householders in the study area requesting feedback. A hard copy of the draft report was also provided at Council’s Administration Centre and Marrickville Library.

A survey form was provided online and at the display site where residents could indicate their support for the draft concept recommendations. Respondents could indicate their “support”, “support with changes” or “not support” the proposed draft concept plan. Respondents were also asked to comment on their reasons or concerns about the concept.

Council received a total of 75 submissions from individual households with most submissions relating to a specific street or treatment, including 68 respondents in support of the strategy (91%) and 7 respondents against the strategy (13%). Key findings of the community feedback are provided below:

 

 

Support:

·    One-way direction (preferred Eastbound) on Norwood Lane to reduce vehicle circulation.

·    Relocation of existing pedestrian crossing signals on Victoria St to Chapel St intersection.

·    Threshold treatments and line marking to slow traffic down in local area.

·    Raising pedestrian crossing on Addison Rd near Coronation Ave to improve safety for students and reduce traffic speed on Addison Rd.

·    Need of speed control treatment on Cook Rd

 

 

Against:

·    No need of traffic calming treatments on Horton St and Charles St, due to the low traffic volumes, environments, marginal speeding concerns and loss of on-street parking

·    Make Illawarra Road one-way direction due to the narrowness.

·    Traffic calming treatments reduce on-street parking capacity.

·    Opposing cycleway on Addison Road.

·    Opposing treatment on Park Rd due to loss of parking

 

Additional requests and concerns were also raised by the communities during the Public Exhibition. A summary of the requests and the associated comments by Council staff is listed below:


Location

Request/Concern

Council Comments

Charles Street & Hoxton Street

No need of traffic calming treatments

·  A total of 9 submissions raised the opposition of either speed humps or slow point treatment.

·  No crash was recorded between 2006 and 2015

·  Low traffic volumes

·  Marginal speeding, less than 2km/h above speed limit.

Illawarra Road

Make Illawarra Road one-way direction due to the narrowness

·  The narrowness is a kind of self-enforcing measures to maintain low speed on Illawarra Rd.

·  The one-way on Illawarra Rd will encourage higher speed environment and result in speeding.

Illawarra Road

Dangerous intersection of Illawarra Rd/Chapel St/Woodland St, due to poor sightline from side streets and existing pedestrian crossing safety issue

·  The kerb extension addresses the sight line issues on both Chapel St and Woodland St and narrow Illawarra Rd in order to discourage through and heavy vehicle traffic and improve pedestrian crossing safety and amenities.

·  Potential for outdoor dining for Henson Park Hotel and the Café.

·  Bike stands are to promote active transport for local trips.

Shepherd Street

Angled parking on Shepherd St as speed control measure

·  Self-enforced traffic calming by street narrowing to reduce speed.

·  Additional parking spaces for the market on the weekend and Addison Rd cycleway project

·  Due to limited width of Shepherd St, the existing on-street parking (approx. 7 spaces) on the eastern side needs to be removed. The increased parking supply by angled parking will compensate the loss of parking spaces on the eastern side.

Addison Road

More pedestrian crossing facilities

·  13 submissions raised the concerns of insufficient crossing facility on Addison Rd in front of the Community Centre, which is used by a Sunday market. The proposal of marked pedestrian crossing at this location will be incorporated and considered in the Addison Road Cycleway design.

Thompson Street

Pedestrian crossing close to the school entrance near Gorman St

·  Thompson Street is currently catering low traffic volume of AADT 442.

·  A review of traffic condition on Thompson St indicates that the pedestrian crossing does not meet the Warrant for marked pedestrian crossing.

·  Kerb extension is considered to reduce crossing distance and improve sightline for pedestrian crossing.

Thompson Street and Farr Street

Treatment to reduce heavy vehicle use of these streets

·  Due to the nature of the industrial area on Farr St, vehicles have no alternative route to access the business.

·  These streets carry high heavy vehicle proportion 7.9% on Thompson St and 8.6% on Farr St. Given to the low ADT of 442 on Thompson St and 611 on Farr St, the HV volumes are still low on this street in approx. 36 and 50 heavy vehicle per day.

 

 

Proposal Amendment:

The following changes have been incorporated into the final LATM report.

1)   Addison Road:

a.   Investigate marked pedestrian crossing near England Ave to the east by replacing existing refuge crossing through the Addison Road cycleway project.

2)   Cook Road:

a.   Delete the conversion of existing parallel parking to angled parking.

3)   Charles Street:

a.   Delete both flat top speed hump option and angled slow point option

Item No:    T0417 Item 10

Subject:     68 MORT STREET, BALMAIN -  MODIFICATION OF SHORT TERM PARKING RESTRICTION                                                    
(LEICHHARDT AND BALMAIN WARD/BALMAIN ELECTORATE/LEICHHARDT LAC)
 

File Ref:     17/6022/30714.17        

Prepared By:     Manod Wickramasinghe - Traffic and Parking Engineer 

Authorised By:  John Stephens - Traffic Manager

 

SUMMARY

Council has received correspondence from the owner of the local grocery store at No.68 Mort Street, Balmain, requesting an extension to the operating hours of the existing short term parking space outside the business, to assist customers. The business owner has raised concerns in regards to the low turnover in the subject spot before 8am and after 6pm and the impact on their customers’ parking needs.

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

THAT the hours of the existing ‘10-Minute’ parking space outside No.68 Mort Street, Balmain be modified from ‘8am-6pm Mon-Fri’ to ‘7am-7pm Mon-Sun’.

 

 

 

BACKGROUND

Council has received correspondence from the owner of the local grocery store at No.68 Mort Street, Balmain, requesting an extension to the operating hours of the existing short term parking space outside the business, to assist customers. The business owner has raised concerns in regards to the low turnover in the subject spot before 8am and after 6pm and the impact on their customers’ parking needs.

 

Currently, the existing short term parking space outside of the business is signposted as ‘P10min 8am-6pm Mon-Fri’.

 

The other parking on the northern side of Mort Street, east of Cameron Street is unrestricted and there are Resident Parking Restrictions on the south side of Mort Street between Cameron Street and Trouton Street.

 

PROPOSAL

In order to address the concerns raised by the owner of the local grocery store, it is proposed to amend the existing P10 minute parking restrictions for the one parking space outside No.68 Mort Street, Balmain to ‘P10-Minute 7am-7pm Mon-Sun’ (as shown on the following plan).


 

 

 

CONSULTATION

A letter outlining the above proposal was mailed out to the affected properties (101 properties) in Cameron Street and Mort Street, Balmain.

 

One response was received supporting the proposal.

 

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

 

The cost of the signposting will be funded from Council’s operational budget.

 

CONCLUSION

 

It is recommended that the operating hours of the existing ‘P10-Minute 8am-6pm Mon-Fri’ parking space outside No 68 Mort Street, Balmain, be modified to ‘P10-Minute 7am-7pm Mon-Sun’ to more closely match the operating hours of the business and to improve parking turnover.

Item No:    T0417 Item 11

Subject:     18 FORBES STREET, CROYDON  - REQUEST FOR MOBILITY PARKING SPACE
ASHFIELD WARD/SUMMER HILL ELECTORATE/ASHFIELD LAC   
 

File Ref:     17/6022/30812.17        

Prepared By:     Anca Eriksson - Traffic Officer 

Authorised By:  John Stephens - Traffic Manager

 

SUMMARY

Council has received an application from 18 Forbes Street for the creation of a dedicated mobility parking space to the front of the property. It is recommended that a space be created in front of the property as there are two disabled permit holders, and there is a lack of or inability to park/access the property from off-street, and on-street parking in the vicinity of the home is difficult to find.

 

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

That a signposted mobility parking space in front of No. 18 Forbes Street, Croydon be supported.

 

 

 

 

BACKGROUND

The applicant has supplied Council with copies of her mobility parking permit, and a letter from her doctor supporting the need for a mobility parking space.  

 

The applicant stated, although she has off-street parking, she is unable to access the house from the garage at the rear of the house with the walkers or wheelchair.

 

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

The cost of the signposting will be funded from Council’s operational budget.

 

 

OFFICER COMMENTS

Parking observations indicate that the space to the front of the property is unrestricted and can accommodate vehicle parking.

 

Inspection on-site confirmed that the applicant’s property has access to a back lane with an off- street garage. From the entry to the garage there are steps to navigate and the paths are not wide enough for a walker or a wheelchair, and are not useful for mobility access, nor can be they be modified in order to do so.

 

At present, parking is unrestricted on the both sides of Forbes Street. There are no existing mobility parking spaces in close proximity to the applicant. It has been observed during a site inspection that the on-street parking in Forbes Street is highly utilised.


 

 

The applicant’s doctor has indicated that the illness or disability limits her walking to short distances and has indicated that the applicant needs to be able to park close to her home. The applicant has been informed that a disabled parking space, if provided will not be for her sole use and that any person holding a valid mobility parking permit is entitled to park in the space.

 

It will not be possible, owing to the narrow width of the street, for the parking space to be installed at the 3.2m width as proposed in the Australian Standard AS2890.5. Kerb ramps can be installed at the applicant’s cost if required.

 

An on-street mobility parking space outside the premises would therefore be recommended.

 

 

PUBLIC CONSULTATION

Council has written to residents of Forbes Street within the vicinity of the proposed mobility parking space inviting comments. No objections to the creation of the space have been received.

 

 

CONCLUSION

In view that there are two residents with mobility parking permits at 18 Forbes Street, and given that there is a lack of or inability to access off-street parking, and that parking on-street is difficult to obtain in close proximity, a mobility parking space outside No 18 Forbes Street is therefore recommended.

Item No:    T0417 Item 12

Subject:     LAWSON STREET, BALMAIN  - MODIFICATION OF ‘RESIDENT PARKING SCHEME’                
(BALMAIN WARD/BALMAIN ELECTORATE/LEICHHARDT LAC)
  

File Ref:     17/6022/30826.17        

Prepared By:     Manod Wickramasinghe - Traffic and Parking Engineer 

Authorised By:  John Stephens - Traffic Manager

 

SUMMARY

Council has received a request to replace the single unrestricted parking space outside of No.22 Lawson Street, Balmain with ‘2P 8am-10pm Permit Holders Excepted Area B1’ in order to match the adjacent resident parking scheme restriction.

 

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

THAT

 a)  The 6m unrestricted parking space in front of No.22 Lawson Street be converted into ‘2P 8am-10pm Permit Holders Excepted Area B1’ as per the adjacent restrictions.

 

b)   That the permit eligibility of No.22 Lawson Street be modified so that the property can participate in the Resident Parking Scheme.

 

 

 

BACKGROUND

Council has received a request to replace the single unrestricted parking space outside of No.22 Lawson Street, Balmain with a ‘2P 8am-10pm Permit Holders Excepted Area B1’ parking restriction

 

This space was previously left unrestricted when the Resident Parking Scheme was first introduced to accommodate a resident’s boat trailer which was historically parked at that location. Boats, caravans and box trailers are not entitled to receive permits and so would not have been permitted to park in a Resident Parking Scheme for longer than indicated on the signs.

 

It should be noted that as part of the compromise to not signpost restrictions in front of the property, No.22 Lawson Street was not eligible to participate in the Resident Parking Scheme.

 

It has now come to Councils attention that the previous resident no longer lives at the address and so the unrestricted parking space is no longer required for parking of the boat trailer. Therefore, it is proposed that the 6m unrestricted parking space in front of No.22 Lawson Street be converted into a ‘2P 8am-10pm Permit Holders Excepted Area B1’ parking space as per the adjacent restrictions.


 

 

CONSULTATION

A letter outlining the above proposal was mailed out to the affected properties (7 properties) in Lawson Street, Balmain.

 

One response was received from the owners of No.22 Lawson Street supporting the proposal.

 

 

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

The cost of the signposting will be funded from Council’s operational budget.

 

CONCLUSION

It is recommended that existing 6m unrestricted parking space outside No.22 Lawson Street be replaced by a ‘2P 8am-10pm Permit Holders Excepted Area B1’ parking space as per the adjacent restrictions and that No.22 Lawson Street be able to participate in the Resident Parking scheme.

Item No:    T0417 Item 13

Subject:     LITTLE STEPHEN STREET, BALMAIN– RESIDENT PARKING SCHEME AND ‘NO PARKING’ RESTRICTIONS –
(LEICHHARDT/BALMAIN/LEICHHARDT LAC)
  

File Ref:     17/6022/30842.17         

Prepared By:     Nina Fard - A/Traffic Team Leader  

Authorised By:  John Stephens - Traffic Manager

 

SUMMARY

Council has received correspondence from residents of Palmer Street with rear access to Little Stephen Street, Balmain raising concerns regarding increased parking demands generated by employees of Stacy House and commuters.

 

This report provides the result of a resident parking scheme investigation in Little Stephen Street, Balmain.

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

THAT:

1)  ‘2P 8am-10pm, Permit Holders Excepted, Area B2’ parking restrictions be installed at the following locations:

·    South side of Little Stephen Street, Balmain (side boundary of No. 54 Palmer Street)

·    West side of Little Stephen Street, Balmain (rear boundary of Nos. 54-58 Palmer Street)

2)  ‘No Parking’ zones be installed at the following locations:

·    North Side of Little Stephen Street, Balmain (side boundary of No. 52 Palmer Street)

·    East side of Little Stephen Street, Balmain (along the boundary of Balmain Hospital)

·    West side of Little Stephen Street, Balmain (Rear boundary of 60 Palmer Street, to allow turning space at the end of the laneway)

3)  ‘No Turnaround area for vehicles over 6m’ advisory signage be installed at the Palmer Street entry to Little Stephen Street, Balmain.

 

 

 

BACKGROUND

A number of residents from Palmer Street, Balmain with rear access to Little Stephen Street, Balmain have requested the implementation of a resident parking scheme in Little Stephen Street to deter long term parking and maintain access to their gates.

 

Currently in Palmer Street near Little Stephen Street, there are ‘2P 8am-10pm, Permit Holders Excepted, Area B2’ restrictions to assist residents to park.

 

Parking occupancy surveys were undertaken in Little Stephen Street, Balmain and they indicated high parking occupancy levels (equal to or over 85%) in the street.

 

Balmain Hospital has recently restricted access to their land at the south end of Little Stephen Street, in response to safety concerns raised by the local residents.


 

This has complicated access to Little Stephen Street by removing the previously available turning space. The narrow width of the street (approximately 5.5m) can restrict turning for larger vehicles. As such, the following ‘No Parking’ zones are proposed to maintain access throughout Little Stephen Street and to provide turning space at the end of the street:

 

·    North Side of Little Stephen Street, Balmain (side boundary of No. 52 Palmer Street)

·    East side of Little Stephen Street, Balmain (along the boundary of Balmain Hospital)

·    West side of Little Stephen Street, Balmain (Rear boundary of 60 Palmer Street, to allow turning space at the end of the laneway)

 

The above mentioned parking restrictions are shown on the following map:

  

 

It is also proposed to install ‘No Turnaround area for vehicles over 6m’ advisory signage at the Palmer Street entry to Little Stephen Street to complement the existing ‘No Through Road’ sign.

 

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

The cost of the signposting will be funded from Council’s operational budget.

 

 

OFFICER COMMENTS

A Resident Parking proposal was prepared to extend ‘2P 8am-10pm, Permit Holders Excepted, Area B2’ restrictions to the south and west side of Little Stephen Street. The proposal also covered the above mentioned ‘No Parking’ restrictions.


 

 

PUBLIC CONSULTATION

 

 

Consultation

A letter outlining the above parking proposal option was mailed out to 12 properties in Palmer Street, as indicated on the attached plan, requesting residents’ views regarding the proposal. 

 

 

 

Five responses from the directly affected residents were received, supporting the proposal.

The table below shows some of the comments raised by the residents who responded to the proposal.  

 

Comments from residents objecting to the proposal

Residents’ Comments

Officer Comments

The very end of Little Stephen St is far too narrow, awkward and uninviting for cars to actually use it to turn around. Locals won't turn there. Zoning this as the turning area risks cars crashing, possibly crashing into no. 60 or 62. Locals have said they will continue trying to turn around on the bend in the road. There needs to be No Parking on the very corner of the bend in Little Stephen St to allow turning there as it's the easiest place to turn.

The Balmain Hospital’s land at the south end of Little Stephen Street is no longer available to provide a turning circle. Council acknowledges that this restricts manoeuvring space at the south end of the street due to the narrow width of the road. Although that is the case, a turning circle analysis has shown that a turn at this location is still possible. Council will not encourage 3-point turns at the bend in the road as there are safety concerns with performing this movement.

There is currently a bollard in Little Stephen Street, at the bend in the road which prevents parking directly at the bend.

The permitted parking zone could be extended to the very end downhill on the Southern side of Little Stephen St (Palmer St end) as cars currently park there now without causing anyone any problems.

The proposed statutory 10 metre ‘No Stopping’ zone at the Palmer Street end of Little Stephen Street is in accordance with NSW Road Rules and in line with Council’s Resident Parking Scheme Policy

 

 

Property Nos. 50-64 Palmer Street, Balmain are considered directly affected by the proposed changes, Council has received 5 supporting responses from the directly affected residents.

 

The Executive Team of Balmain Hospital has been informed of the proposed restrictions and provided with a copy of the community consultation letter. No response was received from Balmain Hospital at the time of finalising this report.


 

 

Based on the above results the proposed ‘2P 8am-10pm, Permit Holders Excepted, Area B2’ restrictions have received more than 50% resident support from the directly affected residents and as such, the requirements of Council’s Resident Parking Policy are satisfied.

 

 

CONCLUSION

Based on the above results, the RPS proposals in Little Stephen Street, Balmain received more than 50% support from the directly affected residents. As such, it is recommended that the proposed ‘2P 8am-10pm, Permit Holders Excepted, Area B2’ restrictions and the supplementing ‘No Parking’ restrictions be supported for implementation.

Item No:    T0417 Item 14

Subject:     TAYLOR STREET, ANNANDALE  - NO PARKING ZONE                           (LEICHHARDT WARD/BALMAIN ELECTORATE/LEICHHARDT LAC)   

File Ref:     17/6022/30855.17         

Prepared By:     Manod Wickramasinghe - Traffic and Parking Engineer  

Authorised By:  John Stephens - Traffic Manager

 

SUMMARY

Council has received correspondence from the Strata and Community Manager of Nos.36-50 Taylor Street, Annandale requesting signage to prevent vehicles from blocking access to their off-street parking facility.

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

THAT a 9m ‘No Parking’ zone be installed on the western side of Taylor Street, across the driveway access to Nos.36-50 Taylor Street, Annandale (approx. 20m from Booth Street).

 

 

 

BACKGROUND

Council has received correspondence from the Strata and Community Manager of Nos.36-50 Taylor Street, Annandale requesting ‘No Stopping’ signage to prevent vehicles from illegally parking across their driveway and thus blocking access to their-off street parking facility. This illegal parking has been occurring on a regular basis, causing both parking and safety concerns for the residents and public.

 

The property is on the edge of the commercial precinct of Annandale and there are 34 units which use this driveway to access the basement car park. Based on the close proximity to the commercial precinct and high number of vehicles which utilise this access way, it is appropriate to signpost the statutory ‘No Parking’ zone across the driveway.

 


 

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

The cost of the signposting will be funded from Council’s operational budget.

 

 

PUBLIC CONSULTATION

Consultation has not been undertaken as there is no impact to on-street parking and the Strata and Community Manager has been advised of the proposal.

 

CONCLUSION

It is recommended that ‘No Parking’ signage be installed across the driveway of Nos.36-50 Taylor Street, Annandale to assist in preventing illegal parking

File Ref:     17/6022/30951.17         

Prepared By:     Manod Wickramasinghe - Traffic and Parking Engineer  

Authorised By:  John Stephens - Traffic Manager

 

SUMMARY

Council has received a request from the groundsman of Birchgrove Oval to investigate the removal of illegal parking on The Terrace, Birchgrove opposite the entrance to Birchgrove Oval as it impedes traffic flow.

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

THAT a 5m ‘Motor Bike Only’ zone be installed on the south-eastern side of The Terrace, Birchgrove extending north from the point 33m from the kerb alignment of Rose Street.

 

 

 

BACKGROUND

The Terrace is a one way street from Rose Street to Grove Street with an approved ‘10km/h Shared Zone’ in operation along its full length.

 

Concerns have been raised by the groundsman of Birchgrove Oval, regarding vehicles illegally parking on the southern side of The Terrace, Birchgrove opposite the main entrance to Birchgrove Oval. At this point the street curves and narrows and parking in this location impacts on manoeuvring space for vehicles. The area in question is not within a marked parking bay; hence parking is not permitted in the area.

 

PROPOSAL

In order to remove any obstruction to vehicle flow and to maximise use of this kerb space, it is proposed to signpost this area as ‘Motor Bike Only’ parking as shown on the following photo.

 

 

 


 

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

The cost of the signposting will be funded from Council’s operational budget.

 

 

PUBLIC CONSULTATION

Consultation was not undertaken as this proposal is not adjacent to any residential properties and should improve parking for motorbikes in the area

Item No:    T0417 Item 16

Subject:     NO PARKING ZONE  - WAITE AVENUE, BALMAIN
(BALMAIN WARD/BALMAIN ELECTORATE/LEICHHARDT LAC)
  

File Ref:     17/6022/30955.17         

Prepared By:     Manod Wickramasinghe - Traffic and Parking Engineer  

Authorised By:  John Stephens - Traffic Manager

 

SUMMARY

Council has received concerns from a resident regarding vehicles obstructing access to the off-street parking space of No.20 Waite Avenue by parking on the eastern side of Waite Avenue, Balmain opposite garage entrances.

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

THAT the existing ‘No Parking’ zone currently in place on the eastern side of Waite Avenue on the frontage of No.2A Waite Avenue be extended southwards by 9.5m across the frontage of No.2 Waite Avenue.

 

 

 

 

BACKGROUND

Concerns have been raised regarding vehicles obstructing access to the off street parking of No.20 Waite Avenue by parking on the eastern side of of the street opposite garage entrances.

 

In 2002 a ‘No Parking’ zone was installed opposite the driveway acesses of Nos.18, 20 and 22 Stephen Street to allow vehicles to enter and exit the driveways.

 

However, when the ‘No Parking’ zone was installed it only extended enough to provide access to one of the two off-street parking spaces of No.22 Stephen Street. The resident has explained that the additional off-street parking space was not used in the past, hence they had not pursued an extension. The resident is now requesting an extension of the existing ‘No Parking’ zone across the frontage of No.2 Waite Avenue to allow for the second off-street parking space to be used.

 

PROPOSAL

 

The resident of No.2 Waite Avenue also raised the issue with vehicles parking across their pedestrian gate and across their driveway.

 

It was noted that the kerb space in between the pedestrian gate and the driveway is less than 4m and so a vehicle parked in this location would obstruct access to either the driveway or the pedestrian access. It should be noted that there is no footpath available in Waite Avenue so vehicles can block pedestrian access.

 

It is therefore proposed to extend the existing ‘No Parking’ zone by 12.5m on the eastern side of Waite Avenue, across the frontage of No.2 Waite Ave as shown on the following plan.


 

 

 

 

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

The cost of the proposed works will be funded from Council's Operational Budget.

 

 

PUBLIC CONSULTATION

A letter outlining the above proposal was mailed out to the affected properties (11 properties) in Stephen Street, Waite Avenue and Adolphus Street, Balmain.

Responses were received from two properties, one supporting the proposal and one which supported the proposal, subject to a minor modification.

 

Residents’ Response:

Officer’s Comment:

I would like to be able to park across my own driveway. This is extension would prevent this. Happy for the ‘No Parking’ in front of the house to be extended to our driveway.

As per NSW Road Rules it is illegal to park across a driveway for any vehicle. However, Council will modify the proposal to signpost the ‘No Parking restrictions up to the driveway and thus allow the statutory ‘No Parking’ restrictions to operate across the driveway.

 


 

 

CONCLUSION

Given the feedback from the directly affected resident, it is recommended that the existing ‘No Parking’ zone currently in place on the eastern side of Waite Avenue on the frontage of No.2A Waite Avenue be extended southwards by 9.5m across the frontage of No.2 Waite Avenue (not including the driveway).

Local Traffic Committee Meeting

Item No:    T0417 Item 17

Subject:     Unnamed lanes between Nowranie, Carrington & Spencer Street, Summer Hill- Part time No parking restrictions
(ASHFIELD WARD/SUMMER HILL ELECTRORATE/ASHFIELD LAC
  

File Ref:     17/6022/30866.17         

Prepared By:     Anca Eriksson - Traffic Officer  

Authorised By:  John Stephens - Traffic Manager

 

SUMMARY

A request has been made from Council’s Waste Services, Ashfield, to implement ‘No Parking, 6am-3pm Monday’ restrictions in the various laneways in Summer Hill. Vehicles parking in various un-named lanes are blocking waste collection services and driveway access to properties. As a result of this, waste collection is either hindered, or not carried out in the lanes.

 

The following recommendation is to primarily introduce No Parking restrictions on waste collection days to assist garbage trucks in accessing the lanes. Other issues such as driveway access and traffic obstruction through the lanes will be further monitored once the primary No Parking restrictions are introduced.

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

THAT:

 

1.    ‘No Parking 6am – 3pm Monday’ restrictions be introduced along sections both sides of the unnamed lanes, between Nowranie Street and Spencer Street south of Smith Street (identified as lane 1 and 2 on the attached Figure. 1).

 

2.    ‘No Parking 6am – 3pm Monday’ restrictions be introduced along the full length of the eastern side of the unnamed lane running parallel between Nowranie Street and Carrington Street, north of Wellesley Street (identified as lane 3 on the attached Figure.1).

 

3.    ‘No Parking 6am – 3pm Monday’ restrictions be introduced along the full length of the eastern and southern side of the unnamed lane running parallel between Carrington Street and Spencer Street north of Wellesley Street (identified as lane 4 on the attached Figure.1).

 

 

BACKGROUND

Council has received numerous complaints from residents and Council’s Waste Collection Services regarding missed garbage collections in the laneways adjacent to Smith, Nowranie, Carrington and Spencer Streets due to vehicles parking in the lanes and blocking access for garbage trucks and resident access to garages and drive ways.

 

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

The cost of the signposting will be funded from Council’s operational budget.

 


 

OFFICER COMMENTS

The main reason for proposing ‘No Parking, 6am-3pm Monday’ is to prevent vehicles from parking and obstructing access in the lanes on the waste collection day being that of a Monday. Access in certain locations can be obstructed when vehicles park on both sides of the lane.

 

Reference is made to the Laneway Parking Guidelines produced by the former-Marrickville Council, which advises that the width of a lane is the most important factor for determining whatever parking is feasible. Laneways which are used for garbage collection would need parking restrictions on collection days to both sides unless the distance between properties is greater than 5.5 m in width. This would account for the proper need and movement of garbage trucks through the lane, which can measure up to 2.8 meters wide (including side mirrors). The unnamed lanes south of Smith Street (identified as No 1 and 2 on Figure 1) are approximately 5.0 m wide and the unnamed lanes between Nowranie, Carrington and Spencer Streets (identified as No. 3 and No. 4 on Figure 1) are approximately 5.4 m wide. All these lanes serve as two-way access from Nowranie Street to Carrington Street and Spencer Street as well as providing rear property and service access to businesses and residents. Parking is currently occurring on both sides of the lanes obstructing access for the Council’s Waste Collection services trucks and blocking access to garages, drive ways and intersections - see Figure 2 and Figure 3.

 

‘No Parking, 6am-3pm Monday’ restrictions would be introduced as a primary measure on both sides along the full or sectional lengths of the unnamed lanes identified as No.1 and 2 on the map, the full length on the eastern side of the unnamed lane No 3, and the full length on the eastern and southern sides of the unnamed lane identified as No 4 on Figure 1.

 

Vehicle parking behaviour would be monitored outside of the ‘No Parking, 6am-3pm Monday’ restriction times to determine if further time limitations/restrictions are required for any other impeding driveway or laneway access.   

 

PUBLIC CONSULTATION

A letter outlining the above parking proposal restrictions was mailed out to the affected properties in the area. Around 115 homes and business were letter boxed dropped within the proposed parking area as described above. Residents were invited to provide their views on a proposal to introduce ‘No Parking 6am – 3pm Monday’ restrictions in the lanes within the subject area.

 

The response to the survey revealed that 19 out of 22 respondents supported the introduction of a ‘No Parking 6am – 3pm Monday’ restrictions in the lanes as shown on Figure 1. Also 3 out of the 22 respondents requested that the restrictions be implemented on a full-time basis, 7 days a week. However, at this stage it is recommended that Council’s Traffic Engineers monitor the situation to determine if further changes are warranted.

 

CONCLUSION

In light of the above information, it is recommended that the proposed ‘No Parking 6am – 3pm Monday’ restrictions as detailed in Figure 1 on one and/or both  sides of various unnamed laneways adjacent to Smith, Nowranie, Carrington and Spencer Streets,  Summer Hill, be supported.

 

The time limits would apply between 6am and 3pm every Monday, for Waste Collection Services in the area. Existing unrestricted parking and ‘No Stopping’ restrictions at intersections will be maintained elsewhere in the lanes as detailed in Figure 1.

Item No:    T0417 Item 18

Subject:     16 HENSON STREET, SUMMER HILL - REQUEST FOR MOBILITY PARKING SPACE

                   (ASHFIELD WARD/SUMMER HILL ELECTORATE/ASHFIELD LAC)

File Ref:     17/6022/30872.17        

Prepared By:     Anca Eriksson - Traffic Officer 

Authorised By:  John Stephens - Traffic Manager

 

SUMMARY

Council has received an application from No. 6/16 Henson Street, Croydon for the creation of a dedicated mobility parking space to the front of the property. It is recommended that a space be created in front of the property as there is a lack of or inability to park/access the property off-street, and on-street parking in the vicinity of the home is difficult to find.

 

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

That a signposted mobility parking space in front of No. 16 Henson Street, Summer Hill, be supported.

 

 

BACKGROUND

The applicant has supplied Council with copies of his mobility parking permit, and a letter from his doctor supporting the need for a mobility parking space.  

 

The applicant stated, although he has off-street parking, he finds it difficult to access the house due to difficulty in driving in and out of the car park and accessing his residence from the carpark. The drive way is too steep and the walking paths from the garage to the entrance of the property are not useful for mobility access.

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

The cost of the signposting will be funded from Council’s operational budget.

 

 

OFFICER COMMENTS

Inspection of site identifies that the driveway and carpark to the property does not properly cater for mobility impaired drivers due to the steepness of the driveway, and cannot be modified in order to do so. 

 

Parking observations indicate that the resident has one off-street narrow width garage from the carpark to his residence. A 2P resident parking zone is present along the outside of the premises but is highly utilised. Parking is difficult to obtain within reasonable proximity of the home.

 

The applicant’s doctor has indicated that the illness or disability limits his walking to short distances and has indicated that the applicant needs to be able to park close to his home. The applicant has been informed that a disabled parking space, if provided will not be for his sole use and that any person holding a valid mobility parking permit may park in it.


 

 

It will not be possible, owing to the narrow width of the street, for parking space to be installed at the 3.2m width proposed in the Australian Standard AS2890.5. Kerb ramps are not proposed at this space due the building at 16 Henson Street provides public access for people with a disability (photo 1).

 

An on-street mobility parking space outside the premises would therefore be recommended.

 

 

PUBLIC CONSULTATION

Council has written to residents of Henson, Drynan and Regent Streets within the vicinity of the proposed mobility parking space inviting comment. No objections to the creation of the space have been received.

 

CONCLUSION

Given that there is a lack of or inability to access off-street parking and that parking on-street is difficult to obtain in close proximity, a mobility parking space outside No. 16 Henson Street, Summer Hill is therefore recommended.

Item No:    T0417 Item 19

Subject:     171 RAMSAY STREET,  HABERFIELD  - INTRODUCTION 30 MINUTE PARKING NEARBY
(LEICHHARDT WARD/SUMMER HILL ELECTORATE/ASHFIELD LAC
  

File Ref:     17/6022/30937.17         

Prepared By:     Anca Eriksson - Traffic Officer  

Authorised By:  John Stephens - Traffic Manager

 

SUMMARY

This report recommends the introduction of two parking spaces limited to 30 minutes parking in the vicinity of the new Haberfield Post Office, 171 Ramsay Street, Haberfield.

 

The restrictions are considered adequate for short term parking needs for both the Post Office and the surrounding businesses. The following proposal addresses the need to have an appropriate turnover of parking for customers to facilitate the existing businesses in the area.

 

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

That parking restrictions signposted “P 30minute, 8.30am-6.00pm Mon-Fri, 8.30am-12.30pm Sat” be installed on the eastern side of Ramsay Street, Haberfield, in the first two parking spaces south of Rawson Street.

 

 

 

BACKGROUND

Council has received representations from the Haberfield Post Office initially requesting that Council give consideration for the installation of 15 minute parking restrictions in front of the new Post Office located at 171 Ramsay St. Haberfield.

 

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

The cost of the signposting will be funded from Council’s operational budget.

 

 

OFFICER COMMENTS

The two parking spaces are outside neighbouring businesses as immediately in front of the Post Office is a kerb extension due to its close proximity to Rawson Street intersection.   Currently, the subject location is signposted as ‘1P 8:30am-6:00pm, Mon-Fri, 8:30am-2:30pm Sat’. The request for 15 minute parking may have an impact for the parking needs of the shops in the surrounding area. A Consultation process was required to obtain comments from local businesses potentially affected by the proposal.  

 

 

PUBLIC CONSULTATION

 A consultation process was undertaken with the shop owners affected in the proposed area of the restricted parking. The businesses in the area were unanimously in opposition of the installation of 15 minute parking due to the potential effect on customers and the limited parking availability.


 

 

Following a review of the feedback, Council then considered 30 minute parking instead of the initially proposed 15 minute parking to benefit short term parking and turnover requirements of both the Post Office and the adjoining shops.

 

A second consultation process was undertaken with the local business potentially affected by the changes to propose 30 minute parking restriction in the subject area.

Eight (8) business premises in Ramsay Street Haberfield were invited to provide their views on the proposed 30 minute parking. The response to the survey up to the date of closure (23 March 2017) revealed that only three (3) submissions were received opposed to the introduction of 30 minute parking.

 

CONCLUSION

Introduction of 30 minute parking is considered as a compromise to adequately provide for short term parking and turn over requirements for customers to all businesses in the area.  

 

Sufficient longer term and unrestricted parking is proposed elsewhere in Ramsay Street, the sides streets and the off- street car park located opposite on the corner of Gillies Avenue and Ramsay Street (which is limited to three hours).

 

It is recommended that the first two parking spaces on the eastern side of Ramsay Street, south of Rawson Street, Haberfield, be modified from ‘1P 8:30am-6:00pm, Mon-Fri, 8:30am-2:30pm Sat’ to ‘P30Min 8:30am-6:00pm, Mon-Fri, 8:30am-2:30pm Sat’ parking.

Item No:    T0417 Item 20

Subject:     8-12 MURRELL STREET, ASHFIELD  - REQUEST FOR WORKS ZONE OUTSIDE
(ASHFIELD WARD/SUMMER HILL ELECTORATE/ASHFIELD LAC)  
  

File Ref:     17/6022/30938.17         

Prepared By:     Boris Muha - Traffic and Projects Engineer  

Authorised By:  John Stephens - Traffic Manager

 

SUMMARY

It is recommended that a Works Zone signposted between the DA operation times of 7am-6pm, 7am-1pm Sat be implemented to the full-frontage of the development Nos.8-12 Murrell Street, Ashfield. The Works Zone will generally assist in the access and manoeuvre of construction vehicles in and out of the property. 

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

THAT:

 

1.  That a ‘Works Zone, 7am-6pm Mon-Fri, 7am-1pm Sat’ approximately 30 metres in length be temporarily installed for nine months outside 8-12 Murrell Street, Ashfield.

 

2.  That the ‘2P, 8am-6pm Mo-Fri Permit Holders Excepted Area1’ zone outside the subject property be temporarily removed. 

 

 

 

 

 

BACKGROUND

The builder for the re-development at Nos.8-12 Murrell Street, Ashfield, has requested the installation of a temporary Works Zone outside the site. The Works Zone is required to generally assist major construction vehicle access in and out of the site.  

 

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

The builder will incur the cost of the installation and removal of the Works Zone under Council’s current Fees and Charges. 

 

 

OFFICER COMMENTS

Council approved a Construction Traffic Management Plan (CTMP) for the demolition of 3 lots of residential premises and the construction of a residential unit development at Nos.8-12 Murrell Street, Ashfield.

Under the CTMP, major construction vehicle activity (demolition, excavation, and particular stages of concrete pouring) will be carried out from off-street to minimise the impact on the street environment. The operations would be generally limited to outside of School Zone hours for reasons of safety with adjacent schools and child care centre located in Murrell Street.


 

 

Murrell Street connects to Orchard Crescent which is a no through road.  The carriageway is approx. 9m wide with parking on both sides and is two-way. Residential parking exists on the western side of Murrell Street. A mixture of ‘No Parking’, disabled parking and ¼ P parking restrictions (between school/AM&PM peak times) exist to the eastern side of Murrell Street to serve the schools and child care centre. Construction vehicle movement and access to the site would be under traffic control.  

To primarily assist in vehicle access and manoeuvre in and out of the site the full-frontage length of the site would be temporarily sign posted as a ‘Works Zone’ to DA times of operation. This will assist to clear on-street parking in the area when major construction vehicle activity is carried out. It is also the intention that vehicles turn in and out of the site closer to the kerb and not out wide to infringe into parking on the opposite side the street.

The zone would be approximately 29-30 metres in length and is requested for a period of 9 months.

Police and RMS raised no objection to the proposed installation of the Works Zone outside Nos.8-12 Murrell Street, Ashfield.

 

PUBLIC CONSULTATION

Not applicable. The zone is only to the frontage of the site and is temporary to assist in the re-development of Nos.8-12 Murrell Street, Ashfield. 

 

 

CONCLUSION

It is recommended that a Works Zone signposted between DA operation times of operation (i.e. 7am-6pm, 7am-1pm Sat.) be implemented to the full-frontage of the development at Nos.8-12 Murrell Street, Ashfield. The zone will generally assist in the access and manoeuvre of construction vehicles in and out of the property.

BACKGROUND

This report considers the requests for removal of the mobility parking spaces received by residents in the Inner West Council Local Government Area.

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

The removal of the signage associated with the mobility parking spaces and replaced with other restricted parking signage has been funded through Council’s signs and linemarking budget.

 

OFFICER COMMENTS

Council Officers are typically advised by the new resident(s) of the property and/or a family member of the applicant who had requested the mobility parking space that the parking space is no longer required.

 

PUBLIC CONSULTATION

Following a letter received by either the new resident(s) of the property or a family member, a notification letter is sent to the resident(s) of the property who had requested the mobility parking space originally and they are advised of the proposed removal of the associated mobility parking signs. Residents are given a week to respond should they wish to retain the space after which the sign is removed.

 

CONCLUSION

It is recommended that the parking changes be approved, to provide the requests made by the applicants and to improve the use of on-street parking for the local community.

Item No:    T0417 Item 23

Subject:     RICHARDSONS CRESCENT, MARRICKVILLE - PROPOSED CHANGES TO PARKING RESTRICTIONS & LINEMARKING ADJUSTMENT

                   (MARRICKVILLE WARD/SUMMER HILL ELECTORATE/MARRICKVILLE LAC)  

File Ref:     17/6022/29318.17         

Prepared By:     Emilio Andari - Civil Engineer  

Authorised By:  Joe Di Cesare - Manager Design and Investigation

 

 

SUMMARY

Council has received requests to investigate the queuing and congestion issues along Richardsons Crescent between the Unwins bridge (i.e. The bridge over the Cooks River) and the roundabout located at the T- intersection on Richardsons Crescent (adjacent to Mackey Park) during weekday peak periods. It is recommended that the proposal for the changes to parking restrictions and the linemarking adjustment on Richardsons Crescent, Marrickville be approved, to improve traffic safety and to alleviate queuing of vehicles during the morning weekday peak periods and vehicles when merging lanes.

 

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

THAT the proposed on-street parking changes and the associated linemarking adjustment on Richardsons Crescent, Marrickville as per the signage & linemarking plan   attached to this report be APPROVED, to improve traffic safety and to alleviate queuing of vehicles during the morning weekday peak periods and vehicles when merging lanes.

 

 

 

 

 

BACKGROUND

Council has received requests to investigate the queuing and congestion issues along Richardsons Crescent between the Cooks River bridge and the roundabout located at the T- intersection on Richardsons Crescent (adjacent to Mackey Park) during weekday peak periods. It has also been reported to Council Officers that traffic congestion occurs quite frequently along Richardsons Crescent northbound during the morning peak periods on weekdays and the extent of the queuing extends into Bayview Avenue, Earlwood (other side of Cooks River in Canterbury-Bankstown Council LGA).

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

The cost of the supply and installation of the signposting associated with the recommended ‘No Parking 7am-9am Mon-Fri’ restrictions and associated linemarking is approximately $3,000 and can be met from Council’s signs and linemarking budget.

Parking Arrangements

Western side of the road consists of unrestricted parking and eastern side of the road consists of ‘1P 8.30am-4pm Mon-Fri, 8.30am-12.30pm Sat’ & ‘No Parking 4pm-6pm Mon-Fri’ restrictions.

 

Site inspection

 

Council Officers have observed during site inspections undertaken in the morning period that traffic queuing occurs from Richardsons Crescent at its roundabout intersection near Mackey Park to Bayview Avenue over Unwins Bridge on the other side of the Cooks River (northbound traffic). It was also observed that the on-street parking spaces on the western side of Richardsons Crescent adjacent to Mackey Park were highly utilised in the morning and afternoon periods. It should be noted that the vehicles parked along Richardsons Crescent are identified as the same vehicles from both the morning and afternoon site inspections. Given that the subject section of Richardsons Crescent is in close proximity to Tempe Railway Station it is envisaged that this section of parking is utilised by commuters (refer to the attached photographs).

 

Tempe Railway Station carpark consists of a total of 147 unrestricted commuter car parking spaces which includes 5 mobility car parking spaces. The Cooks River Tempe carpark adjacent to the Concordia Club, Croquet Club and Mackey Park located west of Richardsons Crescent consists of approximately 48 car parking spaces which includes 2 mobility car parking spaces. In August 2016 ‘4P 8am-6pm’ restrictions were implemented within the Cooks River Tempe carpark to ensure a more equitable use of the carpark and provide for users of the Concordia Club, Croquet Club and Mackey Park along with short term commuter car parking for Tempe Railway Station.

 


 

 

Given that there is a sufficient number of car parking opportunities nearby, the proposal to restrict parking on morning weekday peak periods for a section along the western side of Richardsons Crescent adjacent to Mackey Park and near the roundabout intersection will alleviate queuing of vehicles (northbound traffic) on the approach to the roundabout and allow additional queuing space for vehicles turning right from both lanes at the roundabout intersection. It should also be noted that the northbound lane along Unwins Bridge Road consists of ‘No Parking 7am-9am Mon-Fri’ restrictions and therefore it is appropriate to apply the same time-restrictions for Richardsons Crescent.  

 

Council officers have also observed during a site inspection undertaken in the afternoon period that traffic congestion occurs along southbound traffic along Richardsons Crescent, particularly at the signalised intersection adjacent to Tempe Railway Station carpark. It should be noted that the queuing of vehicles occurs at the signalised intersection and motorists tend to disobey the road pavement markings and queue in both lanes heading southbound. The left lane on the approach to the signalised intersection consists of ‘left arrow’ pavement markings which demonstrates left-only turn movements at the intersection however, motorists ignore the on-road markings and attempt to merge lanes to their right. It should be noted that immediately south from the signalised intersection on Richardsons Crescent, the departure lane is merged into one lane forcing motorists who disobey the left-turn lane movement to merge into the right lane causing a ‘bottle-neck’ scenario. In order to improve the amenity of the roadway within this subject section of Richardsons Crescent and to improve traffic and pedestrian safety at the signalised intersection, linemarking adjustments are required to coincide with the proposed parking changes along both sides of Richardsons Crescent. The linemarking adjustment will include a shift in the ‘L1’ linemarking to widen the traffic lane width from 3.0m to 3.4m. This shift of linemarking will result in a parking lane and left-turn lane width of 3.0m (refer to the attached signage & linemarking plan). As a result of the linemarking adjustments on Richardsons Crescent, additional on-street unrestricted parking will be provided for all users for a section along the eastern side of the road adjacent to the railway corridor. 

   

Proposal for a ‘No Parking 7am-9am Mon-Fri’ zone along the western side of Richardsons Crescent, Marrickville

 

It is proposed to change the existing unrestricted parking along the western side of Richardsons Crescent by installing ‘No Parking 7am-9am Mon-Fri’ restrictions for a distance of 30 metres immediately south from the existing ‘No Stopping’ restrictions located 40 metres south from the roundabout intersection (refer to the attached locality map and signage & linemarking plan). These proposed changes will improve traffic safety and facilitate an additional traffic lane to alleviate queuing of vehicles during the morning weekday peak periods.

 

Proposal for an unrestricted parking zone and adjustments to the existing ‘No Parking’ & ‘No Stopping’ zones along the eastern side of Richardsons Crescent, Marrickville

 

It is proposed to change the existing parking restrictions along the eastern side of Richardsons Crescent by removing the ‘1P 8.30am-4pm Mon-Fri, 8.30am-12.30pm Sat’ & ‘No Parking 4pm-6pm Mon-Fri’ restrictions and reinstating this section with unrestricted parking for a distance of 36 metres starting at 56 metres north from the signalised pedestrian crossing at Tempe Railway Station carpark intersection (refer to the attached locality map and signage & linemarking plan). The existing ‘No Stopping’ restrictions located immediately north from the signalised pedestrian crossing and on the eastern side of Richardsons Crescent is proposed to be extended by 6 metres north to provide a total of 56 metres from the signalised intersection. It is also proposed to provide a length of 16 metres of ‘No Parking’ restrictions commencing 30 metres south from the roundabout intersection on the eastern side of Richardsons Crescent. These proposed changes will improve traffic safety and facilitate a parking lane to alleviate queuing of vehicles when merging lanes.


 

 

Proposal to install edge-line linemarking (E1) and other associated linemarking

 

It is proposed to install edge-line linemarking (E1) along the eastern side of Richardsons Crescent surrounding the section of the proposed unrestricted parking (approximately 70 metres in length) and also to remove existing broken lane-line linemarking and install new broken lane-line linemarking to provide a 3.4 metre wide traffic lane from the existing centre (BB) linemarking. It is also proposed to remove the existing ‘left-turn only’ symbols and reinstall these symbols appropriately given the change in width for the ‘left-turn only’ lane to be 3.0 metre wide (refer to the attached locality map and signage & linemarking plan). These proposed changes will improve traffic safety.

Item No:    T0417 Item 24

Subject:     UNWINS BRIDGE ROAD, ST PETERS – PROPOSED NO STOPPING & NO PARKING RESTRICTIONS

                   (MARRICKVILLE WARD/HEFFRON ELECTORATE/NEWTOWN LAC)  

File Ref:     17/6022/29983.17         

Prepared By:     Emilio Andari - Civil Engineer  

Authorised By:  Joe Di Cesare - Manager Design and Investigation

 

SUMMARY

Requests have been received from local residents from adjacent streets to Unwins Bridge Road, St Peters for the extension of ‘No Stopping’ restrictions along Unwins Bridge Road at its intersections with Silver Street and Conway Place. Residents have advised Council officers that vehicles are parked too close to the intersection, restricting available sightlines for turning motorists.

 

It is recommended that statutory 'No Stopping' restrictions be installed for a distance of minimum 10m from the listed intersections in order to deter illegal parking, increase safety and improve visibility and access. It is also recommended that a section of ‘No Parking 7am-9am’ restrictions be installed in addition to the statutory ‘No Stopping’ restrictions on Unwins Bridge Road both south and north of Silver Street in order to increase safety near the crest on Unwins Bridge Road and improve visibility and access for turning motorists.

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

THAT:

 

1.   The existing ‘No Stopping’ zone on the eastern side of Unwins Bridge Road, St Peters and north of its intersection of Silver Street (adjacent to property no. 70 Unwins Bridge Road) be shifted 2 metres north and a section of 6 metres of ‘No Parking 7am-9am’ restrictions be installed immediately north of the 10m statutory ‘No Stopping’ zone at the intersection of and be APPROVED, in order to deter illegal parking, increase safety and improve visibility and access for turning motorists;
