RP-1               Fernleigh Road Bus Zone

Author:                        Frank Goodyer         

 

 

Officer Recommendation

That Council approve the installation of 30 metres of time restricted BUS ZONE, utilising R5-20 series signs, BUS ZONE 8AM – 9.30AM, 2.30PM – 4PM SCHOOL DAYS, on the northern kerb of Fernleigh Road and east of the intersection of Quail Street.

 

Report

Croft Developments are constructing a 144 Bed Aged Care at 20 Hely Avenue, Turvey Park which will restrict access to the CSU entrance on the corner of Charleville and College Avenue to construction vehicles only.

 

Students of Saint Mary Mackillop College who currently use this entrance to access the bus stop in College Avenue before and after school will be restricted from using this access as the development progresses.

 

Croft Developments has written to all School bus service providers who will be affected by the construction activity and has proposed Fernleigh Road as the alternative location for the set-down and pick-up of school students.

 

Council staff have inspected the site of the proposed bus zone location and in consultation with bus operators and Saint Mary Mackillop College, consider the location depicted in the diagram as the most appropriate location to install the bus zone.

 

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

Consultation has been conducted with Croft Developments, Busabout, Miller’s Buses, Allen’s Coaches and the Board of Saint Mary Mackillop College. Nearby residents on Fernleigh Road and NSW Ambulance Service. No objection to the proposal have been raised through consultation.

RP-2               NO RIGHT TURN - The Riverina Anglican College

Author:                        Frank Goodyer         

 

 

Officer Recommendation

That Council approve the installation of the following regulatory “No Right Turn” restrictions at the exits from The Riverina Anglican College, 127 Farrer Road, Boorooma.

a       Install one R2-6N-R NO RIGHT TURN with plate denoting words and times 8am – 9.30am 2.30pm – 4pm School Days sign at the western-most light vehicle exit. This sign to face drivers exiting onto Farrer Road regulating all vehicles to turn left.

b       Install one R2-6N-R NO RIGHT TURN with plate denoting words and times 8am – 9.30am 2.30pm – 4pm School Days (Buses Excepted)  at the exit of the Bus Zone. This sign to face drivers exiting onto Farrer Road, regulating all vehicles, except buses, to turn left.

 

Report

Background

The installation of these signs was approved by Council at its ordinary meeting on 8 February 2021 with the recommendation that the installation be reviewed in six months.

21/031           

That Council

a          endorse the following regulatory “No Right Turn” restrictions at 127 Farrer Road, Boorooma:

   The installation of one “NO RIGHT TURN” sign at the western most vehicle exit onto Farrer Road.

   The installation of one “NO RIGHT TURN” sign with an additional “BUSES EXCEPTED” sign at the Bus Zone exit onto Farrer Road.

b           that the Traffic Committee review this decision in six months

Comment

Information from the College and bus operators has been positive with both reporting efficient exit by buses and light vehicles from the college onto Farrer road.

The College further reported the following from its own traffic consultant;

 We did assess the proportion of traffic turning right out of the site back in April - conclusion was that it was very minimal at peak times, and that outside of peak times the risk was very low due to the traffic on Farrer Road being low and the sight distance being good in both directions.

I agree that the times for No Right Turns should be limited to peak periods only, and I'm pretty sure this was a condition of the original consent.

The revised recommendation reflects the results of the review as recommended by Council

Risk Management Issues for Council

There are no risks that are associated with this matter.

Internal / External Consultation

Consultation was undertaken with Bus operators and the Senior Management of the Riverina Anglican College.

RP-3               Winja Lane - NO STOPPING

Author:                        Frank Goodyer         

 

 

Officer Recommendation

That Council install a length of NO STOPPING zone on the northern kerb of Forsyth Street, 10 metres east and west of Winja Lane, untilising R5-400 series signs.

 

Report

Background

Council has received a customer request in relation to the safety of vehicles entering and leaving Winja Lane at the intersection with Gurwood Street. The customer states,

“Recently , poor carparking and an increase in traffic to the Thorne Street General store has made exiting the laneway more dangerous. A couple of recent near misses has sparked this request”

Comment

Investigations confirm the concerns as expressed by the customer and the installation of a length of NO STOPPING zone across the laneway will provide motorists clear direction on where they can legally park.

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

Consultation was undertaken with the applicant in this matter.
