LTC0418 Item 5 Various locations, Inner West - signposting of load limits/height clearances on a number of bridges over/under light rail network in Inner West Local Government Area

SUMMARY

 

Transdev Sydney (TDS), operator of the Inner West Light Rail network (IWLR), have recently completed inspections and qualified outstanding load ratings of the over bridge assets that interface with the IWLR. TDS are now requesting confirmation of this advice and assurance from Council that these bridges are being used and traffic managed within safe operational limits as identified.

 

An audit of the itemized light rail bridge crossings in the Inner West was conducted and new load limit / height clearance signage has been identified as being required at a number of locations to ensure public safety and asset protection. This report details the signage required to be installed by Council. No existing on-street parking will be affected by the proposed improvement works. It is noted that three crossings involve State roads and therefore need to be referred to the RMS (Site locations 3, 5 and 8).

 

It is recommended that the proposed signage be approved and implemented subject to the approval of the TMP by the RMS.

LTC0418 Item 6 Regional Bicycle Route 7- Detailed Design Plans (Central & North Wards/Summer Hill & Newtown)

SUMMARY

 

On December 2016, Council approved a final concept plan for the improvement of Regional Bicycle Route7 which is an identified bicycle route in Council’s Bicycle Plan.

 

The Regional Route 7(RR7) is an important east-west route between Lewisham and Newtown which links the inner west to Sydney CBD.

 

The route is 3.8 kilometers long and consists of two sections:

 

·    Section 1 – Longport Street, Lewisham, to Crystal Street, Petersham; and

·    Section 2 – York Crescent, Petersham, to Eliza Street, Newtown.

 

The NSW Government identified RR7 as a priority route and is funding the development of the upgrade plans. The aim of the proposal was to make RR7 bicycle route more safe, convenient and more enjoyable for people of all ages and ability to ride.

 

Based on the approved concept plan the draft design plans have been finalised and are presented in this report for Committee consideration.

 

It is recommended that the detail design of the RR7 to enhance bicycle connectivity to public transport, local shops and other destination be APPROVED, and Council submit five Traffic Signal Design plans to RMS for consideration and approval.

 

Officer’s Recommendation

 

THAT:

 

1.   The Regional Bicycle Route7 – Lewisham to Newtown detail design plan (No 6174) be APPROVED; and

 

2.   Council submits related draft traffic Signal design plans to the RMS for consideration and approval.

 

 

DISCUSSION

 

Mr Bill Woodhead, resident of Railway Avenue, attended at 10.08am.

 

Mr Woodhead stated that he supports the proposed bicycle route and made the following comments:

 

·         Parking on the southern side of Railway Avenue is unrestricted and is often occupied by trailers, boats and caravans. Due to the steep camber of the road, these vehicles lean over the footpath. After the construction of the bike path, large vehicles will instead lean into the bike path, potentially causing a hazard for users of the bike path.

·         There is no policing of the trailers that are parked on Railway Avenue. Trailers are often parked halfway onto the footpath and some are parked with the hitches overhanging the footpath. This would also be a hazard for bike users once the bike path is constructed.

·         Suggest implementing 'No Parking Motor Vehicles under 4.5t GVM Excepted' restrictions or linemarking the southern side of Railway Avenue to reduce potential for oversized vehicles overhanging the bike path.

·         Motorists often speed along Railway Avenue, particularly when traveling eastbound from Douglas Street. It was suggested that a speed cushion is installed between  Surrey Street and the ‘curve’ of Railway Avenue to slow traffic speeds.

 

Mr Woodhead left at 10.16am.

 

Council Officers tabled additional feedback received after the conclusion of community consultation (Attachment 1).

 

The representative for the Member for Balmain suggested that the access points on the Railway Avenue bidirectional bike path be aligned with either the centre or the northbound entry of the side streets (i.e. access points to Warwick Street and Stafford Street). Council Officers advised that vehicle crossings on Railway Avenue are available to bike users to cross to the side streets. Council Officers also advised that the entry points can be reviewed and amended if necessary.

 

Council Officers advised that there are currently no plans to implement 'No Parking Motor Vehicles under 4.5t GVM Excepted' restrictions on the southern side of Railway Avenue as this could move the trailers and oversized vehicles to local streets. However, the cycleway will be monitored after construction and enforcement action can be taken if vehicles are found to be parking over the cycleway and creating hazards. Should issues still persist, Council Officers could examine other potential solutions.

 

The RMS representative stated that RMS are yet to comment on the plans and advised that comments will be provided shortly to Council Officers.

 

The Committee members agreed with the Officer’s recommendation.

 

COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

 

THAT:

 

1.   The Regional Bicycle Route7 – Lewisham to Newtown detail design plan (No 6174) be APPROVED; and

 

2.   Council submits related draft traffic Signal design plans to the RMS for consideration and approval.

LTC0418 Item 8 Constitution Road, Dulwich Hill – Amendment To Proposed Pedestrian Refuge Island Upgrade Design Plan (Ashfield Ward/Summer Hill Electorate/Inner West LAC)

SUMMARY

 

An amendment to the detailed design plan has been finalised for the proposed traffic calming improvements in Constitution Road, Dulwich Hill, at its intersection with Williams Parade, as part of the Dulwich Hill North LATM study implementation.

 

The amended proposal to upgrade the existing pedestrian refuge islands and associated signs will improve pedestrian and cyclist safety at this location. It is recommended that the proposed detailed design plan be approved.

 

Officer’s Recommendation

 

THAT the amended design of the upgrade to the existing pedestrian refuge islands with associated signs in Constitution Road, Dulwich Hill, at the intersection with Williams Parade (as per design plan No. 6154_A) be APPROVED.

 

DISCUSSION

 

The representative for the Inner West Bicycle Coalition requested for bicycle road markings to be installed for the roundabout following the narrowing of the road. Council Officers advised that bicycle road markings are typically installed on roads that are part of a cycle route. Constitution Road is a typical local road and is not on a bicycle route. As such, no bicycle symbols would be installed at this roundabout without undertaking a design process which would address implementation standards and safety aspects. Currently Council Officers are focusing on implementing bicycle facilities on intersections which are on Council’s bicycle plan and have been designated for works.

 

The RMS representative requested that, if practical, chevron markings be installed on approach to the refuges to better highlight them.

 

The Committee members agreed with the Officer’s recommendation.

 

COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

 

THAT the amended design of the upgrade to the existing pedestrian refuge islands with associated signs in Constitution Road, Dulwich Hill, at the intersection with Williams Parade (as per design plan No. 6154_A) be APPROVED.

LTC0418 Item 9 Denison Road, Dulwich Hill – Proposed One Lane Slow Point With Line Markings & ‘No Left Turn’ Restriction Design Plans (Ashfield Ward/Summer Hill Electorate/Inner West LAC)

SUMMARY

 

A detailed design plan has been finalised for the proposed traffic calming improvements in Denison Road, Dulwich Hill, between Eltham Street and New Canterbury Road, as part of the Dulwich Hill North LATM study implementation. The proposal for a one lane slow point with associated signs and line markings and a ‘No Left Turn’ restriction during weekday morning peak period from New Canterbury Road into Denison Road to improve safety and calm traffic.

 

Consultation was undertaken with owners and occupiers of properties adjacent to Denison Road, regarding the proposal. A summary of the consultation results are presented in this report for consideration. It is recommended that the proposed detailed design plans be approved. It is also recommended that a ‘No Left Turn 7am-9am Mon-Fri’ restriction from New Canterbury Road into Denison Road, Dulwich Hill be approved and implemented, subject to a Traffic Management Plan (TMP) being considered and approved by the Roads and Maritime Services (RMS).

 

Officer’s Recommendation

 

THAT:

 

1.    The design of the one lane slow point with associated signs and line markings in Denison Road, Dulwich Hill (as per design plan No. 6191 & design plan No. 6200) be APPROVED; and

 

2.    The installation of a ‘No Left Turn 7am-9am Mon-Fri’ restriction from New Canterbury Road into Denison Road, Dulwich Hill be APPROVED and implemented, subject to a Traffic Management Plan being considered and approved by the Roads and Maritime Services.

 

 

DISCUSSION

 

Public speaker: Mr Peter Edwick, resident of Denison Road attended at 10.16am

 

Mr Edwick stated that he supports the recommendation and stated the following:

 

·         Denison Road becomes very dangerous during morning peak times as motorists travel over the speed limit and motorists overtake other vehicles if there is space in the adjacent lane. The street also becomes difficult to cross, especially for children on their way to the nearby schools.

·         Council had advised residents in 2017 that the budget for the works were approved and construction of the one lane slow point will be escalated for 2017/18. Residents of Denison Road are disappointed that the one lane slow point has since been taken down in priority.

·         Residents request that the one way slow lane be prioritised for construction as soon as possible.

 

Mr Edwick left at 10.23am.

 

The representative for the Member for Balmain requested that the proposedNo Left Turn 7am-9am Mon-Fri’ restriction from New Canterbury Road into Denison Road be designated ‘Bicycles Excepted’. Council Officers noted this request for implementation.

 

The representative for the Inner West Bicycle Coalition noted that the plans indicated that only one side of the slow point has bike road markings and asked that both sides have the markings. Council Officers advised that bike markings can be installed on the southern approach to the slow point and will incorporate this into the plans.

 

The program of approved works arising from the Dulwich Hill North LATM review, including Denison Rd, is scheduled to commence in the last quarter of this financial year (17/18) and will be completed in the first quarter of new financial year (18/19).

 

The Committee members agreed to amend the recommendation to include additional signage and road markings in the plan.

 

 

COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

 

THAT:

LTC0418 Item 11  Lewisham - Proposal to Implement Permit Parking in Additional           Streets -  M16 parking area (Summer Hill Electorate/Stanmore    Ward/Inner West LAC)

SUMMARY

 

Following representations from the community regarding the impact of increased residential development, Council is proposing to introduce permit parking restrictions in a number of streets in Lewisham from Cook Street to Barker Street. The proposals are based on the results of parking surveys and feedback from a questionnaire circulated to the affected properties.

 

Officer’s Recommendation

 

THAT the proposals as detailed in Table 1 below be approved to improve the availability of on-street parking for residents.

DISCUSSION

 

Council Officers advised that late submissions were received from residents of Cook Street (dead end section), requesting for resident parking for their street. Council Officers advised that this has been previously investigated and it was found that residents tend to park on the kerb due to the narrow width of the street. Implementing a resident parking scheme would result in the removal of parking from one side of the street. Council can review parking in Cook Street six months after the proposal is implemented and determine the need for a resident parking scheme in the cul-de-sac section of the street.

 

The RMS representative advised that for sections of road that are classified State roads, RMS reserves the right to potentially remove measures if they do not work as intended or the traffic situation worsens.

 

The Committee members agreed with the Officer’s recommendation.

 

COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

 

THAT the proposals as detailed in Table 1 below be approved to improve the availability of on-street parking for residents.

LTC0418 Item 16  Illawarra Road, Marrickville – Removal of Redundant ‘No Parking’       Restrictions Outside Nos. 410 and 408 And Introduce New “1P         8.30AM – 6.00PM’ Parking Restrictions

SUMMARY

 

Council is proposing to remove the redundant AM & PM peak restrictions on a short length of restricted one (1) hour parking, located adjacent to Nos. 410 and 408 Illawarra Road, Marrickville. The 11 metre length of allowable parking will be converted to “1P 8.30AM – 6.00PM’, in line with other parking restrictions along Illawarra Road, Marrickville. Adjacent businesses have been notified of the proposed changes.

 

Officer’s Recommendation

 

THAT:

 

1.       The existing ‘No Parking 6.30am – 9.30am 3.30pm – 6.30pm  Mon – Fri’ restrictions be removed from outside Nos. 410 and 408 Illawarra Road, on the western side 20 metre north of Harnett Avenue, Marrickville; and

2.       The 11 metre length of allowable parking, on the western side of Illawarra Road, 20 metres north of Harnett Avenue  be converted to “1P 8.30AM – 6.00PM’, in line with other parking restrictions along Illawarra Road, Marrickville. 

 

DISCUSSION

 

Public speaker: Mr Nick Seremetis, representing a business on Illawarra Road, attended at 10.24am.

 

Mr Seremetis stated that he supports the recommendation and made the following comments:

 

·         The ‘No Parking’ restrictions have been there for a while for no apparent reason. There are no issues with traffic during morning and afternoon peak times at the section of Illawarra Road where the restrictions currently exist.

·         The removal of the signs will increase parking capacity by 20m which benefits the businesses on Illawarra Road and the general community.

 

Mr Seremetis left at 10.32am.

 

Committee members were advised that the restrictions were originally installed years ago due to a number of accidents that had occurred at the intersection of Renwick Street and Illawarra Road and were designed to improve sightlines. Due to recent changes to the intersection, the restrictions have become redundant.

 

The Committee members agreed with the Officer’s recommendation.

 

 

COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

 

THAT:

 

1.       The existing ‘No Parking 6.30am – 9.30am 3.30pm – 6.30pm  Mon – Fri’ restrictions be removed from outside Nos. 410 and 408 Illawarra Road, on the western side 20 metre north of Harnett Avenue, Marrickville; and

2.       The 11 metre length of allowable parking, on the western side of Illawarra Road, 20 metres north of Harnett Avenue  be converted to “1P 8.30AM – 6.00PM’, in line with other parking restrictions along Illawarra Road, Marrickville.

LATE ITEMS

 

LTC0418 Item 23 Ferdinand Street, Birchgrove - Proposed Parking Bay (Balmain            Ward/Balmain  Electorate/Leichhardt LAC)

 

Prepared by: David Yu – Traffic Engineer

 

Authorised by: Manod Wickramasinghe – Coordinator – Traffic and Parking Services

 

SUMMARY

Concerns have been raised by the resident of No. 24 Rose Street, regarding vehicles partially parking on the footpath on the western side of Ferdinand Street (adjacent to 24 Rose Street) obstructing pedestrian accessibility to the property.

 

Officer’s Recommendation

 

THAT:

 

1.         A 10m ‘No Stopping’ zone be installed on the western side of Ferdinand Street from the corner of Rose Street.

2.         A 12.7m closed parking bay be marked on the western side of Ferdinand Street (adjacent to 24 Rose Street).

 

BACKGROUND

Concerns have been raised by the resident of 24 Rose Street regarding vehicles parking on the footpath at the western side of Ferdinand Street, which impedes pedestrian accessibility to the property. There is also a hydrant located in the footpath adjacent to the property that needs to be accessed by Sydney Water or Fire and Rescue NSW officers.

 

Ferdinand Street is two-way, 6.5m wide with parking on both sides of the street. The width of the footpath ranges from 1.5m to 1.8m. Vehicles partially park on the footpath due to the insufficient road width, which reduces the effective footpath width along the street.

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

Nil.

 

OTHER STAFF COMMENTS

In order to alleviate the issue, it is proposed to mark a 12.7m closed parking bay within the road carriageway on the western side of Ferdinand Street, adjacent to 24 Rose Street (shown on the following plan) to designate where vehicles need to park on-street, maintain pedestrian access to the property and access to the hydrant.

Council officer response

Objection to parking loss on Trafalgar Street  (1 summation)

This project has been developed with a focus on minimal parking loss. Unfortunately in some locations such as Trafalgar Street (with high traffic and pedestrian volume) the parking is compromised to allow for provision of two way separate bike path treatment. The separated bike paths are proposed in order to improve bike rider safety and comfort on sections of the route where on–road /shared path alternatives are unsafe due to high traffic and pedestrian volumes and alternative road options are impractical. This is consistent with NSW Government policy of providing appropriate bike infrastructure that meets user needs. Generally the parking to be lost is adjacent to railway land as to minimise the direct loss in parking for residents.

Don’t support 9 tree removals with only one replacement  (1 summation)

All 9 trees to be removed will be replaced along new kerb alignment

 

*It should be noted that comments received in support of the proposal ‘with changes’ are comments /changes in relation to the design and will be  considered and investigated as part of the further detail design phase and if are feasible, will be incorporated into the design.
