LTC1018 Item 5 Manning Street at Darling Street, Rozelle - Pedestrian and Traffic Improvements LATM (Balmain Ward/ Balmain Electorate/ Leichhardt LAC)

SUMMARY

Detailed design plans have been finalised for the proposed pedestrian and traffic improvements in Manning Street, Rozelle as part of the Pedestrian Access and Mobility Plan (PAMP) adopted by the former Leichhardt Council in February 2014.

 

The proposed works includes kerb extension with garden beds, pedestrian ramps with associated signposting and line marking on Manning Street at Darling Street, Rozelle.

 

Officer’s Recommendation

 

THAT the detailed design plan for the kerb extension with associated garden beds, pedestrian ramps, associated signposting and line marking in Manning Street, Rozelle (as per the attached plan No. 10029) be approved.

 

DISCUSSION

 

The Member for Balmain requested for the one-way Shared Zone be made two-way for cyclists to allow cyclists access to Manning Street properties from Darling Street. Council Officers advised that ‘Bicycles Excepted’ signage .. be added underneath the One-Way signage.

 

Councillor da Cruz asked whether the existing Shared Zone could be extended to the intersection of Darling Street. The RMS representative advised that there may have been a reason for the Shared Zone terminating early; however, the representative did not anticipate issues with relocating the ‘End Shared Zone’ signage to the intersection.

 

The representative for the Inner West Bicycle Coalition requested for bicycle symbols to be marked on Manning Street. Council Officers advised that bicycle symbols are not typically installed in Shared Zones as speeds are already limited through the zone.

 

Councillor da Cruz asked whether there is a ‘No Right Turn’ at Darling Street into Manning Street. Council Officers stated that a ‘No Right Turn’ can be investigated at this location.

 

The Committee members agreed to amend the recommendation to relocate the Shared Zone signage to Darling Street, add ‘Bicycles Excepted’ signage on the one-way signage and investigate the need for a ‘No Right Turn’ sign in Darling Street.

 

 

COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

 

THAT:

 

1.    The detailed design plan for the kerb extension with associated garden beds, pedestrian ramps, associated signposting and line marking in Manning Street, Rozelle (as per the attached plan No. 10029) be approved;

2.    ‘Bicycles Excepted’ sign be added under the existing One-Way sign in Darling Street at Manning Street.

3.    The ‘End Shared Zone’ signage be relocated to the intersection of Darling Street, Rozelle; and

4.    A ‘No Right Turn’ sign in Darling Street approaching Manning Street be investigated.

 

For motion: Unanimous

LTC1018 Item 7 Pidcock Street, CAMPERDOWN - Proposed footpath reconstruction and formalisation of existing angled parking – Design Plan 6203 (STANMORE WARD /NEWTOWN ELECTORATE/ INNER WEST LAC)

SUMMARY

A detailed design plan has now been finalised for the proposed footpath reconstruction and formalisation of the existing angled parking improvements in Pidcock Street, Camperdown along its entire length as part of Council’s identified asset improvements program.

 

Consultation was undertaken with owners and occupiers of properties in Pidcock Street regarding the proposal. A summary of the consultation results are presented in this report for consideration. It is recommended that the proposed detailed design plan be approved.

 

 

Officer’s Recommendation

 

That the detailed design plan (Design Plan No.6203) for the proposed footpath reconstruction and formalisation of the existing angled parking improvements in Pidcock Street, Camperdown along its entire length be APPROVED.

 

DISCUSSION

 

Councillor da Cruz requested that during construction, the sandstone gutter be reconstructed rather than replaced with concrete as proposed. Council Officers advised that while the sandstone kerbing will be reinstated the street is very flat and concrete gutters have been proposed to allow water to flow freely and prevent ponding. Council Officers also advised that the sandstone will be salvaged and reused as appropriate.

 

The Committee members agreed with the Officer’s recommendation.

 

 

COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

 

That the detailed design plan (Design Plan No.6203) for the proposed footpath reconstruction and formalisation of the existing angled parking improvements in Pidcock Street, Camperdown along its entire length be APPROVED.

 

For motion: Unanimous

 

 

LTC1018 Item 8 Local Bicycle Route 3 (LR3) - Detailed Design Plans (Marrickville Ward/Summer Hill Electorate/Inner West LAC)

SUMMARY

In November 2016, Council approved final concept plan for proposed improvement to Local Route 3 (LR3) bicycle route, identified in Council’s Bicycle Plan. LR3 is located along Livingstone Road, from Randall Street to Marrickville Park. The aim of the proposal is to make LR3 bicycle route safer, convenient and more enjoyable for people of all ages and ability to ride.

 

The draft design plans are based on the approved concept plan and are presented in this report for the Local Traffic Committee’s consideration. The proposed improvements will complete missing links in Council’s bicycle network and enhance bicycle access to public transport, local shops and other destinations.

 

It is recommended that the detail design for LR03 to enhance bicycle connectivity to public transport, local shops and other destination be APPROVED, and subsequently, Council submits Traffic Signal Design plans for Marrickville Road intersection to RMS for consideration and approval.

 

Officer’s Recommendation

 

THAT:

LTC1018 Item 19  Church Street, St Peters - Proposed 'No Parking' restrictions      (Marrickville Ward/Heffron Electorate/Inner west LAC)

SUMMARY

Council received representations from residents in Church Street, St Peters indicating that parking on both sides of the street in some sections is obstructing the safe passage of vehicles including service vehicles and potentially emergency vehicles. Council is proposing to restrict parking in order to improve access and allow for service and emergency vehicles to pass safely along the road. The proposal will result in the loss of one permit parking space on the southern side of Church Street. The signposting of ‘No Parking’ on the northern side is largely to reinforce “No Parking’ as there is a practice of people parking across their own driveways obstructing the flow of traffic in the street.

 

Officer’s Recommendation

 

THAT:

 

1.   Implementation of  ‘No Parking’ restrictions  from property No.81 to property No.91D Church Street, St Peters (northern side); and

2.   Conversion of one existing parking space from ‘‘2P Permit Holders Excepted 8:30am-6:30pm Mon-Fri’ restrictions to ‘No Parking’ outside property No.112 Church Street, St Peters  be approved.
