Author:          Bill Harvey         

 

Recommendation

That Traffic Committee note that the following matter was distributed to members on 27 September 2018 with members responding in favour of the event.

 

That Traffic Committee endorse the conduct of a multicultural street festival, FUSION18 to be held in Baylis Street, Wagga Wagga, between the north side of Wollundry Lagoon and the intersection with Morrow Street and in Morrow Street between Baylis Street and Ivan Jack Drive on Saturday 20 October 2018 subject to the following conditions:

 

a       A certified and approved Traffic Control plan that prevents ordinary traffic access to the area is to be implemented and maintained by appropriately authorised personnel prior to and throughout the event.

b       There is to be no vehicular movement in the nominated areas during the event once setup is complete.

c        Organisers and event participants obey all Police directions.

d       Organisers and event participants obey any reasonable direction that is made by a Wagga Wagga City Council Officer in respect of the management of the road network.

e       Closure of the section of Tongaboo Lane that is nominated in the traffic control plan diagram is to be managed with traffic controllers located at both ends of the closed section plus one additional traffic controller to manage any traffic movements that occur within the closed section.

f        No event participant is to occupy a position on a road that is outside of the closed area.

g       The Event Organiser is to notify emergency services and public transport providers of the road closures.

h       Failure to comply with any condition immediately voids approval for the event and normal traffic regulation and restriction will apply from that time.

 

Report

Application has been received from the WWCC Community Services Section to hold a multicultural street festival in and around the Civic Centre precinct between 4pm and 9:30pm on Saturday 20 October 2018. The area in which the festival will be held includes the roadway sections of Baylis Street that are between the intersection with Morrow Street and the northern side of Wollundry Lagoon and Morrow Street between Baylis Street and Ivan Jack Drive.  Setup for the event needs to be commenced with road closures from 09:00am. The event is expected to be packed up and roads open by 12:00am.

 

The extended period that is required by the organisers for setup is explained in the emailed letter that is attached.  The City of Wagga Wagga, who is the road authority for Baylis Street and Morrow Street, is satisfied with the reasons that have been provided for the need of an extended time to setup the event.

 

The method that is proposed to be used to manage traffic in Tongaboo Lane is a departure from the method that has been used for similar events over the past two years. This proposal will remove all moving traffic from Morrow Street. The event organiser and the traffic control service provider are absolutely confident that traffic in Tongaboo Lane can be safely managed using the strategy that is detailed in the traffic management plan. There is no evidence or experience that suggests that the strategy will not achieve the intended goal.

 

The event is organised, promoted and sponsored by the City of Wagga Wagga. The event involves stalls, demonstrations, street performances and musicians. There are no vehicles involved in the event and there will be no need for moving vehicles to be inside the street closure, except for dropping off and picking up items for stalls in the pre and post event stages.

 

The event organiser has engaged the services of a suitably qualified traffic control provider to supply and implement a traffic control plan for the event, see attachment. A similar arrangement was used since 2012, without adverse incident.

Risk Management Issues for Council

The purpose of this report is to adequately manage risks that are associated with an on-street event on behalf of Council.

 

The risk involved in this matter without any treatment has been assessed as LIKELY / MAJOR- which places it in the – HIGH category.

Internal / External Consultation

Consultation was undertaken with the event organiser. The event organiser has consulted with business operators in the area of Baylis Street, Morrow Street and Fitzmaurice Street that will be affected by the conduct of this event.

RP-2               REMEMBRANCE DAY - ON-STREET EVENT

Author:          Bill Harvey         

 

Recommendation

That Traffic Committee members note that the following matter was distributed to members by way of email on 4 September 2018 with members responding in favour of the proposed event.

 

That Traffic Committee endorse the conduct of the Remembrance Day parade and commemorative service from 10:00am on Sunday 11 November 2018 in Morgan and Baylis Streets and the Victory Memorial Gardens subject to the following conditions:

 

a                The event is to be conducted as per the location and times that are stipulated in the application documents.

b                A certified and approved Traffic Control plan to be implemented by authorised personnel from Wagga Wagga City Council prior to and throughout the event.

c                No vehicular movement in the nominated areas during the event except for those vehicles that are used as part of the parade.

d                Organisers and event participants obey all Police directions.

e                Organisers and event participants obey any direction from a Wagga Wagga City Council Officer.

f                  Morgan Street, from Berry Street to Baylis Street, is to be opened to normal use by the non-event community once the parade has completely cleared that section of road and the street can safely be opened.

g                Baylis Street, from Morgan Street to the northern side of the intersection with Tompson Street is to be opened for normal use by the non-event community once the parade has cleared that section of road and the street can be safely opened to traffic.

h               No event participant is to occupy a position on a road that is outside of the closed area.

i         Failure to comply with any condition immediately voids approval for the event and traffic regulation and restriction will apply from that time.

 

Report

Application has been received from the Wagga Wagga RSL to hold the centenary Remembrance Day commemorations as a parade and service, commencing at 10:00am on Sunday 11 November 2018 in Morgan Street and Baylis Street and the area around the Victory Memorial Gardens.  Based upon recent renewed interest in Australia’s heritage and continued involvement in war zones overseas, organisers expect a significant number of people at the service, not dissimilar in size to ANZAC Day.

 

Wagga Wagga City Council will provide traffic control for the event.

 


 

Morgan Street and Baylis Street up to Tompson Street will be opened to normal Traffic after the parade has passed.  Baylis Street from the northern side of Tompson Street to the northern side of the Wollundry Lagoon Bridge will remain closed until the conclusion of the service at the cenotaph in the Victory Memorial Gardens.

All roads are expected to be opened by 12:15pm.

RP-4               CHARLEVILLE ROAD - PROPOSED GIVE WAY SIGN CONTROL AT COLLEGE AVENUE

Author:          Bill Harvey         

 

Recommendation

That Traffic Committee recommend the installation of duplicated ‘A’ size R1-2 GIVE WAY SIGNS and associated painted TB line, in Charleville Road at the intersection with College Avenue.

 

Report

Council Officers have received a request for investigation of the intersection of Charleville Road and College Avenue.  Charleville Road forms a terminating junction with College Avenue.  One of the two entry points from the road network to the St Mary McKillop College and the Riverina Conservatorium of Music is located at a driveway at the extreme southern end of College Avenue, close to the intersection with Charleville Road.  The College and the Conservatorium are both traffic generators.

 

 

Investigations revealed that drivers are unclear on the priority road at this intersection.  South bound drivers on College Avenue who are continuing into the driveway have found that traffic turning right from Charleville Road cuts across their intended path.

 

View on College Avenue towards the southern end

 

View on Charleville Rd towards the west

 

It is proposed that the question of priority at the intersection should be clarified for drivers by installing duplicated ‘a’ size R1-2 GIVE WAY signs in Charleville Road at the intersection, as per the following diagram.

 

 

Risk Management Issues for Council

The purpose of this report is to manage a risk that is identified in the report.

 

The risk that is involved in this matter, without treatment, has been assessed as LIKELY / MODERATE – which places it in the HIGH category.

Internal / External Consultation

Consultation was undertaken with the resident who raised the issue with Council Officers.

RP-5               HAMPDEN AVENUE SIGNAGE FOR THE HARNESS RACING FACILITY

Author:          Bill Harvey         

 

Recommendation

That Traffic Committee recommends

a       the installation of a G5-14 style sign with the words ‘HARNESS RACING’ together with a right pointing chevron on the eastern side of Hampden Avenue opposite the intersection with Horseshoe Road, and

b       the installation of G5-13 style signs with the works ‘HARNESS RACING’ together with appropriate left and right pointing chevrons in Hampden Avenue at the intersection with Cooramin Street, indicating towards the west.

c        support for a review and appropriate reduction in the speed limit on Cooramin Street, west of Hampden Avenue, before the harness racing facility is opened for racing.

 

Report

A request has been received from Harness Racing New South Wales in respect of the new racing facility that is being constructed off Cooramin Street Cartwrights Hill, for appropriate directional signage to be installed at the intersection of Hampden Avenue, opposite Horseshoe Road and on the north and south bound approaches to the intersection with Cooramin Street.

 

It is proposed that a sign be located on the eastern side of Hampden Avenue, opposite the intersection with Horseshoe Road. The sign to take the form of a G5-14 Community Facility Direction sign with the words ‘HARNESS RACING’ appearing on two lines.  The words would be accompanied by a chevron indicating towards the right.

 

 

 

Similar signs in the G5-13 (single line) format with appropriate left and right facing chevrons should be located facing north and south bound traffic in Hampden Avenue at the intersection with Cooramin Street

 

 

Harness Racing New South Wales have indicated that they will pay all expenses in relation to the manufacture and installation of the signs on local roads.

 

Harness Racing NSW has also asked for a review of the speed limit in Cooramin Street on the western side of Hampden Avenue.  The street is currently unsealed with a ‘default rural’ speed limit of 100 km/h.  The street is to be sealed from the intersection with Hampden Avenue to 20 metres west of the western most entry point to the harness racing facility.  It has been suggested that a speed limit of 60 km/h will be more appropriate for that length of road. Roads and Maritime Services have agreed to undertake the review.

 

Risk Management Issues for Council

There are no risk issues that are associated with this recommendation.

Internal / External Consultation

Consultation has been undertaken with Harness Racing New South Wales, Roads and Maritime Services and with internal stakeholders.

RP-6               HAMMOND AVENUE - PROPOSED NO STOPPING CONTROLS ASSOCIATED WITH DEVELOPMENT APPLICATION - DA18/1015

Author:          Bill Harvey         

 

Recommendation

That Traffic Committee recommend the installation of a 58 metre length of NO STOPPING zone on the northern side of Hammond Avenue, using standard R5-400 series signs, from 1.5 metres west of the entry driveway to the caravan park at 93-99 Hammond Avenue to 1.5 metres east of the eastern driveway that is associated with the development application, as indicated in the diagram that is included with the report.

 

Report

Council has conditionally approved the development of a service station on the northern side of Hammond Avenue, immediately on the eastern side of the existing driveway entry and exit from the caravan park near Marshals Creek bridge.  The service station will have two driveways, occupying blocks at 101 to 105 Hammond Avenue.

 

A condition of the approval for the development application, DA18/1015, is that NO STOPPING zone be established across the street frontage of the property.  Investigation of the site suggests that the NO STOPPING zone should incorporate the existing driveway for the caravan park at 93-99 Hammond Avenue, through to the eastern side of what will be the egress driveway for the service station.  A buffer of 1500mm is proposed on the outsides of the two driveways.

 


Report submitted to the Traffic Committee on Thursday 8 November 2018.                                                                                                       RP-6

 


Risk Management Issues for Council

The purpose of this report is to adequately manage risks that are associated with parked vehicles that cause a restriction to movement and lines of sight at heavily trafficked driveways.

 

The risk involved in this matter without any treatment has been assessed as LIKELY / MODERATE- which places it in the – HIGH category.

Internal / External Consultation

Provision of this zone is a condition of the development that was requested by Roads and Maritime Services.

RP-7               HAMMOND AVENUE AND TASMAN ROAD - APPLICATION FOR DEVELOPMENT OF A VEHICLE SERVICE CENTRE

Author:          Bill Harvey         

 

Recommendation

That Traffic Committee:

a       receive and note the content of plans associated with entry from Tasman Road to the site that is proposed to be developed on the south-east corner of the intersection of Hammond Avenue and Tasman Road, and

b       recommends that the traffic controls that are depicted in the plans that are attached to this agenda item be implemented.

 

Report

A proposal to develop a vehicle service centre on the south-east corner of the intersection of Hammond Avenue and Tasman Road has been received by Council.  Entry to the site is proposed from both Hammond Avenue and Tasman Road.  All exiting vehicles will leave via a driveway onto Tasman Road.

 

Engineering drawings have been received detailing the layout of the Tasman Road entry and exit driveways.  The drawings include enhancements to Tasman Road that will include widening to accommodate a design standard vehicle that is a 30 metre long A-double configuration.  It is proposed to install a short length of slip lane with corresponding painted arrows at the entry driveway from Tasman Road.  There will also be lengths of NO STOPPING zone established on both sides of Tasman Road with the intent of removing the potential for vehicles to park in a position of elevated risk.

Risk Management Issues for Council

The purpose of this agenda item is to manage risks that are associated with a proposed commercial development.

 

The risk involved in this matter without any treatment has been assessed as LIKELY / MODERATE- which places it in the – HIGH category.

Internal / External Consultation

This matter has been raised with Council by the developer as part of the development application process.
