MATTERS ARISING FROM COUNCIL’S RESOLUTION OF MINUTES

 

The Local Traffic Committee recommendations of its meeting held on 6 May 2019 were adopted at Council’s meeting held on 28 May 2019.

 

 

LTC0619 Item 1 Wharf Road, Birchgrove - 10km/h Shared Zone and Footpath Parking proposal (Baludarri-Balmain Ward/Balmain Electorate/Leichhardt PAC)

SUMMARY

 

In response to concerns raised by residents regarding parking conditions in Wharf Road,

Council is proposing to provide a 10km/h Shared Zone and Footpath Parking Scheme in

Wharf Road between Lemm Street and Grove Street, Birchgrove. Wharf Road was previously listed in the former Leichhardt Council’s ‘narrow streets program’ and was identified as having a high demand for on-street parking.

 

Officer’s Recommendation

 

THAT a ‘10km/h Shared Zone’ and footpath parking scheme be installed in Wharf Road, Birchgrove between Grove Street and Lemm Street as per Attachment 1, subject to RMS approval.

 

DISCUSSION

 

Public speakers: Jantje Korringa and Peter Miller attended at 10.04am.

 

Ms Korringa supported the proposal as it improves safety in the street and noted that Council is reviewing the parking space in between No.20 and 22 Wharf Road which is obstructed by a powerpole.

 

Mr Miller supported the proposal as it addresses his concerns with safety in Wharf Road; however, requested the reintroduction of midblock speed calming treatments into the concept plan. Mr Miller stated that there should be no footpath parking around the bend of Wharf Road, in front of his property as suggested in the resident comments.

 

(Ms Korringa and Mr Miller left at 10.09am)

 

Public speakers: Janette Sullivan, D. Garder and M. Garder attended at 10.11 am

 

Ms Sullivan, Ms Garder and Mr Garder did not support the proposal as they believe the speed humps and signage will diminish the heritage characteristics of the street. They stated that Wharf Road is already self-enforcing and that there have not been accidents or issues with vehicle access in the street and so this proposal is unnecessary.

 

(Ms Sullivan, Ms Garder and Mr Garder  left at 10.27am)

 

The RMS representative confirmed that the ‘10km/h Shared Zone’ and associated regulatory signage requires RMS approval and signage would be installed by RMS.

 

Council Officers clarified that there was an error on the concept plan and there are no speed humps proposed in Wharf Road.

 

COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

 

THAT:

 

1.    the treatments associated with the proposed ‘10km/h Shared Zone’ and footpath parking scheme in Wharf Road, Birchgrove between Grove Street and Lemm Street be endorsed;

 

2.    the proposal be submitted to RMS for approval of the ‘Shared Zone’ and regulatory signage.

 

For motion: Unanimous

 

 

LTC0619 Item 2 Mullens, Beattie and Montague Streets, Balmain - Proposed Intersection Treatments (Baludarri-Balmain Ward/Balmain Electorate/Leichhardt PAC)

SUMMARY

 

The roundabout at the intersection of Mullens Street, Beattie Street and Montague Street,

Balmain has been identified as a location that requires traffic calming measures to improve

safety at the intersection.

 

Officer’s Recommendation

 

THAT the detailed design plan for the speed cushions and associated signs and line marking on approach to the roundabout at Mullens Street, Beattie Street and Montague Street, Balmain (as per Design Plan No.10075) be APPROVED.

 

DISCUSSION

 

Potential noise issues associated with the proposed speed cushions was noted. The RMS representative stated that because the roundabout is not effective at slowing down traffic due to its size and lack of deflection, the speed humps are an appropriate traffic calming treatment at the proposed location.

 

The Committee members agreed with the Officer’s recommendation.

 

 

COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

 

THAT the detailed design plan for the speed cushions and associated signs and line marking on approach to the roundabout at Mullens Street, Beattie Street and Montague Street, Balmain (as per Design Plan No.10075) be APPROVED.

 

For motion: Unanimous

 

 

 

 

 

LTC0619 Item 3 Crescent Street and Boomerang Street, Haberfield - Proposed Refuge Island and Speed Cushion (Gulgadya-Leichhardt Ward/ Summer Hill Electorate/ Burwood PAC)

SUMMARY

 

As part of the 2019/20 Traffic Facilities (LATM) Capital Works Program, Council is proposing

to construct a pedestrian refuge island in Crescent Street at Boomerang Street and install

speed cushions in Boomerang Street, north of Crescent Street, Haberfield to improve safety

and calm traffic in the street.

 

Officer’s Recommendation

 

THAT the detailed design plan for the kerb blister islands, speed cushions and associated signposting and linemarking in Crescent Street and Boomerang Street, Haberfield (as per the attached plan No. 10074) be approved.

 

DISCUSSION

 

Public speakers: Yvonne Frost and Tim Frost attended at 10.36am.

 

Ms and Mr Frost did not support the proposal due to the loss of two parking spaces and they believe pedestrian traffic is too low to justify the proposed refuge treatment in Crescent Street. Ms and Mr Frost also commented that:

 

·         A pedestrian refuge on Boomerang Street would be more suitable due to pedestrian activity between Robson Park and surrounding streets. They stated that this would also assist to reduce the speed of traffic in Boomerang Street.

·         The blister island on the south side of Crescent Street would be more appropriate in Boomerang Street to narrow the road.

·         The proposed street light on Crescent Street is not preferable as bedrooms are typically situated at the front of properties.

·         The Boomerang Street frontage does not allow parking due to an existing Bus Stop.

 

(Ms and Mr Frost left at 10.48am)

 

Officers advised that the speed cushions address the speed of vehicles along Boomerang Street and the pedestrian refuge both assists pedestrian movements across Crescent Street and reduces the speed of vehicles entering Crescent Street from Boomerang Street.

 

In light of the issues raised, the Committee members agreed to defer the item for further investigation.

 

COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

 

THAT improvements to the intersection be deferred for further investigation of potential treatments in the Boomerang Street approach.

 

For motion: Unanimous

SUMMARY

 

Sydney Metro have engaged John Holland Pty Ltd and Laing O’Rourke Australia Construction Pty Ltd (JHLORJV) to undertake the Sydenham Station and Junction works to facilitate the new Sydney Metro line and part of these works involve the construction of a new concourse and plaza.

The representative for the Member for Heffron requested that a temporary pedestrian crossing on Burrows Avenue and Bolton Street be investigated due to the Sydney Metro construction. Council Officers indicated that this request will be raised with Sydney Metro.

 

Council Officers advised that the roundabout signs on the plans are an error and ‘Give Way’ signs should be denoted instead.

 

The Committee members agreed with the Officer’s recommendation with the addition of a recommendation to investigate temporary pedestrian crossings on Burrows Avenue and Bolton Street.

 

COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

 

THAT the design of the temporary traffic control arrangements in Burrows Avenue and the temporary pedestrian refuge in Hogan Avenue, Sydenham (as per design plans prepared by Bitzios dated 10 May 2019) be approved subject to:

 

·         additional controls at the intersection of Hogan Avenue and Burrows Avenue being further investigated and necessary treatments provided to satisfy issues raised in the Road Safety Audit;

·         consideration of the provision of a marked pedestrian crossing at the proposed and existing pedestrian refuge facilities;
