Reports

RP-1               Proposed NO U-TURN on Docker Street at the Meurant Avenue intersection

Author:                        Frank Goodyer         

 

 

Officer Recommendation

That Council install a NO U TURN sign on the centre median on Docker Street, south of  the intersection of Meurant Avenue.

 

Report

A customer advised that they had witnessed several near collisions at the intersection of Docker Street and Meurant Avenue as north bound vehicles made spontaneous U-Turns at the intersection to access parking spaces on the eastern kerb of Docker Street.

This is occurring during peak travel times mostly of a morning and the proximity to the railway crossing and several busy intersections, increases the likelihood  of collisions around this location.

There is a NO U-TURN sign currently installed on the centre median on the northern side of the intersection and the recommendation involves the duplication of this sign on the southern side of the intersection.

Risk Management Issues for Council

The intended purpose of this report is to safely manage a risk issue that has been identified and that is detailed in the report.

Internal / External Consultation

This matter arose as a result of a concerned customer who contact council’s  customer service. Traffic Officer’s investigated the customer’s concerns which resulted in the recommendation.
