Regulatory Matters

 

Report No. 6.1             Speed Review - Brunswick Valley Way and Shara Boulevard Intersection at Billinudgel

File No:                        I2016/511

 

Council at it’s meeting held on 17 March 2016, considered a petition about the subject matter and resolved:

 

Res 16-105

1.       That the petition regarding speed limit on Brunswick Valley Way Billinudgel be noted.

2.       That the petition be referred to the Director Infrastructure Services.

 

An investigation has been undertaken of the Brunswick Valley Way and Shara Boulevard intersection at Billinudgel to determine if a speed zone reduction from 80km/hr to 60km/hr speed is warranted.  A site investigation was carried out on the 17 May 2016 at 7:30am. The intersection, currently 80km/hr, was found to be appropriate and there were no issues at this time.  A review of the crash data available near this intersection was completed with no common link between the incidents that could be related to the intersection design.

 

It is noted that the new Shara Boulevard Sports Fields may increase traffic into the intersection in the future as per the Development Application.

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

RECOMMENDATION:

That the Committee notes that an investigation at the Brunswick Valley Way and Shara Boulevard intersection has been completed and a speed zone review is not recommended at this time.

Report No. 6.2             Extension of School Bus Route - Parrot Tree Place, Bangalow

File No:                        I2016/900

 

Council has received an application (S2016/7668) from Mr Pat Bulzomi, Manager/Operator of Bulzomi Bus Lines to extend the existing school bus route N1563 (as shown in green) along Parrot Tree Place in Bangalow. The bus would enter Parrot Tree Place and complete the circuit (as shown in red), before continuing the current route along Tristania Street.

 

Parrot Tree Place is an urban sealed road of approximately 735m in length in Bangalow. There are 51 land parcels. The operator has stated that there are seven (7) children, aging between 5 to 10 years old, currently using the bus who reside in Parrot Tree Place or streets that are accessed from Parrot Tree Place.

 

Committee endorsement is sought for the extension of the existing school bus route.

 

Figure 1 – Subject Site

 

Green indicates existing bus route and red indicates proposed extension.

 

 

  

 

RECOMMENDATION:

That Council note the Local Traffic Committee has no objection to the proposed extension of the school bus route along Parrot Tree Place, Bangalow. The bus would enter Parrot Tree Place and complete the circuit before continuing the current route along Tristania Street.

Local Traffic Committee Meeting                                                                                    6.3

 

 

Report No. 6.3             24.2014.48.1 - Lawson Street and Massinger Street RAB - Approval of Line Marking and Signs Plan

File No:                        I2016/916

 

Background

Byron Shire Council has initiated the construction of a new concrete roundabout at Massinger Street, Lawson Street and Lighthouse Road intersection. There is no record that the Line Marking and Signs Plan has been endorsed by Local Traffic Committee.

 

Investigation

Traffic control signage for the roundabout looks adequate.

 

However with the widening of the Massinger Street it appears that up to seven new car parks have been created due to the open drain being converted into a pipe syatem. The installation of three ‘No Stopping’ signs highlighted in red below will remove these seven potential car parks.

 

A potential reason for ‘No Stopping’ being incorporated into the design is the four properties adjoining the new widening section of road.

 

During the inspection traffic it was suggested to use Daniels Street to bypass the Roundabout construction site. The Street is very narrow with parking on both sides for residents with single lane access and the current seal is in need of repair and would deteriorate quickly if traffic was diverted down this street. This detour would displace the residents parking and cause issues for the construction team with complaints from the residents. The risk of an incident in this narrow street would also be increased due to sight distance and speed issues.

 

Estimate

Nil. No additional costs as the project are fully funded.

 

  

 

RECOMMENDATION:

1.       That the Local Traffic Committee endorse all Regulatory Signage for the roundabout.

 

2.       That the Local Traffic Committee not endorse the following:

 

a.    the installation of three additional ‘No Stopping’ signs from 7 Massinger Street to 76 Lawson Street.

 

b.    The use of Daniel Street as a detour around the Lawson Massinger Street Roundabout during the construction phase.

 

3.       That the Local Traffic Committee endorse the installation of 4 hour parallel parking from Daniel St to Kipling St (1 to 7 Massinger Street).

Report No. 6.4             Event Road Closure - Monthly Criterium Cycle Races, Byron Bay Industrial Estate - Request for Three Year Agreement from September 2016 (Amended)

File No:                        I2016/917

 

BACKGROUND:

 

After consideration at the Local Traffic Committee on 8 June 2016 and subsequent Council resolution 16-389, on the 4 August 2016 Council resolved that:

 

16-389        Resolved that Council adopt the following Committee Recommendation(s):

Report No. 6.6     Road Event - Monthly Criterium Cycle Races, Industrial Estate, Request for 3 Year agreement from September 2016

File No: I2016/505

 

1.      That the Byron Bay Cycle Club’s Criterium Racing circuit at Byron Bay Industrial Estate, to be held on the first Sunday of each month from 4 September 2016 to the last Sunday in August 2019, be endorsed between these times:

a)      Centennial Circuit between Bayshore Drive and Wollongbar Drive, Tasman Way, Wollongbar Drive and Brigantine Street (between Centennial Circuit and Wollongbar Drive) between the hours of 06:00 and 09:00

2.      That the approval provided in Part 1 is subject to NSW Police approval being obtained

3.       That the attached Traffic Control Plan and Traffic Management Plan be noted

4.       That the Traffic Management Plan be implemented as approved

5.       That the event organiser:

i.          provide wording for Council’s website noting the impact of the event and including the event name, specifics of any traffic impacts or road closures and times, alternative route arrangements, event organiser, a personal contact name and a telephone number for all event related enquiries or complaints

ii.          inform community and business that are directly impacted (eg adjacent to the event) via written information which is delivered to the property in a timely manner so as to document, consider and respond to any concerns raised

iii.         arrange for private property access and egress affected by the event

iv.        liaise with bus and taxi operators and ensuring arrangements are made for provision of services during conduct of the event

v.         consult with emergency services and any identified issues be addressed

vi.        hold $20m public liability insurance cover which is valid for the event

vii.        pay Council’s Road Event application fee prior to the event.

 

On the 9 August 2016 the event organiser, Mr John Langler, was notified of the approval as detailed in resolution 16-389. Mr Langler then bought it to Council attention that an error had occurred and the event application incorrectly advised the dates of the planned races, being the first Sunday of each month. The correct dates for races will be the second and fourth Sunday of each month.

 

The Local Traffic Committee members have provided interim approval for the Criterium Cycle Races planned for the 14 August, 28 August, 11 September, 25 September, 9 October and 23 October to go ahead, abiding by the conditions as stated in resolution 16-389. However, ongoing approval for Criterium Cycle Races to take place on the second and fourth Sunday of each month is still required.

 

 

REPORT (Amended):

 

Council has received an Application and Traffic Management Plan from the Byron Bay Cycle Club for Criterium Cycle Racing along circuit at Byron Bay Industrial Estate - seeking continuation of approval from September 2016 to September 2019 and course changes. The Club races on the second and fourth Sunday of the month from 06:00 to 08:30.

 

The Council Meeting on 8 October 2013 approved the following resolution 13-556:

 

1.      That Council approve the request by the Byron Bay Cycle Club to hold criterion races every second and fourth Sunday of the month between October 2013 and September 2016 within the Byron Bay Industrial Estate, on condition that the Byron Bay Cycle Club hold Public Liability Insurance to a minimum value of $20 million.

2.      That the temporary road closures for the event be advertised, at the Club’s expense, in the local newspapers in accordance with the requirements of the Roads Act 1993 noting closures:

a)       are to apply from the hours of 6 am to 8 am and once per year to 9 am.

b)      include Centennial Circuit between Bayshore Drive and Wollongbar Drive, Tasman Way, Wollongbar Drive and Brigantine Street (between Centennial Circuit and Wollongbar Drive)

3.      That the Club send all properties within the area affected by the event a letter advising of the details of the temporary road closures and when they will occur.

4.      That any objections received against the proposed temporary road closures and the event be referred to the Local Traffic Committee for consideration.

5.      That the Traffic Control Plan be implemented by suitably qualified traffic controllers.

 

It is requested that the Application & Traffic Management Plan from the Byron Bay Cycle Club for Criterium Cycle Racing circuit at Byron Bay Industrial Estate, to be held the second and fourth Sunday of each month, from September 2016 to September 2019 be endorsed.

 

  

 

RECOMMENDATION:

1.       That the Byron Bay Cycle Club’s Criterium Racing circuit at Byron Bay Industrial           Estate, to be held on the second and fourth Sunday of each month from 4 September           2016 to the last Sunday in August 2019, be endorsed between these times:

Local Traffic Committee Meeting                                                                                    6.7

 

 

Report No. 6.7             24.2015.19.1 - Marine Parade, Byron Bay - Regulatory Signage - Extension of Pay Parking Scheme - Endorsement of Council Resolved Time Limits within Wategos

File No:                        I2016/984

 

Agenda item 6.4 of the Local Traffic Committee’s (LTC) meeting held 27 July 2016 was tabled to Council on 25 August 2016.

 

Council resolved in favour of the Committee recommendation with two exceptions, both of which require Committee concurrence. As copied overleaf (Res 16-467) they relate to:

 

·    Part 2(a), which endorses that a 4-hour (4P) time limit apply across 98% of parking stock within the Wategos Pay Parking area, whereas the Committee had recommended a mix of time limits, namely that a 2-hour (2P) limit to apply to 40% of the parking stock (e.g. at the beach front) while 58% apply 4P and 2% provide special purpose parking (e.g. mobility permit and motorcycle parking); and

 

·    Part 3, which endorses that a 4-hour (4P) time limit apply within the Wategos Resident and Resident Visitors Permit Parking Scheme, whereas the Committee had recommended a 2-hour (2P) limit.

 

Part 2(a)

 

In regard to Part 2(a), it is notable that Council (in resolving upon a 4P time limit) is adhering to the recommendation as made in the consultants (TPS) report as tabled to the Committee at the 27 July 2016 meeting (file E2016/65469).

 

As the Committee will recall, the TPS report recommended implementing Figure 6.1 (as reproduced overleaf in Figure 1). However, with concern for lack of turnover and limited parking at the beachfront, staff had recommended a balanced approach including that 40% of available parking instead apply a 2-hour (2P) limit.

 

Nevertheless, it is also noted that such concerns can be addressed should or when they materialise.  As such, Committee concurrence for Part 2(a) of 16-467 is sought.

 

Part 3

 

As for Part 3 of 16-467, it is noted that a 4P limit (permits excepted) within the resident scheme would be consistent with parts of the same scheme operating in Byron Bay. However it provides twice the duration of free, non-permit (i.e. public) parking that the TPS report recommended, which was for a 2P limit (permits excepted), which was subsequently supported by the Committee.

 

While a greater time limit (i.e. 4P instead of 2P) may result in less turnover and therefore less vehicles parking within the resident scheme, there is a greater likelihood that 4-hours free parking (and without the need of a permit) will place greater demand on the streets than a 2P limit. This is for several reasons. For one, 4-hours free parking is more appealing than 4-hours paid. Two, 4-hours is likely to satisfy more beach-goers or visitors than 2P; and three, especially at peak times, may result in less opportunity for residents or their visitors to park on-street.

 

These problems are likely to be more acute the closer the parking is to the beach front. For example, motorists will seek to park closest to the pay parking area as possible, but not within it. If this occurs there is potential that the resident streets (with a 4P limit) will attract parking looking to avoid the meter while those with exceptions to paying the meter (E-Permit holders) will dominate the pay parking area.

 

While such an outcome will defeat the purpose of either scheme, it can be reviewed and changed if found warranted. To this end it is recommended that the Committee concur with Part 3 of Res 16-467 on the proviso staff review the Wategos parking schemes during the first holiday period they apply; and that such review include seeking resident feedback.

 

Resolution 16-467

 

16-467 Resolved:

 

That subject to the concurrence of the LTC Council adopt:

 

1.   That a meter registration pay parking scheme be implemented upon Marine Parade, Wategos between the intersections of Palm Valley Drive and Julian Place on the proviso it is the same as the Byron Bay scheme, for example the same hourly rates, regulations, restrictions, exemption benefits, etc.

 

2.   That the following time limits and ratios be implemented upon the full length of Marine Parade, Wategos and that they apply Monday-Sunday inclusive including public holidays between the hours of 9am-6pm and that outside of such hours the existing sign-posted regulations remain:

 

a)   a 4-hour (4P) limit apply to approximately 98% of parking supply, and that it first be allocated from Palm Valley Drive to the turning circle, and the balance (if any) apply the east end of Marine Parade, from Julian Place; and

Report No. 6.8             Event Road Closure - Brunswick Valley Woodchop and Entertainment Committee - Twilight Markets - Mullumbimi Street, Brunswick Heads - Wednesday, 14 December 2016

File No:                        I2016/986

 

Council has received an application and Traffic Control Plan (TCP) from the Brunswick Valley Woodchop & Entertainment Committee Inc for the Twilight Markets to be held Wednesday 14 December 2016 and the Fireworks Night to be held Saturday 14 January 2017.

 

The annual Twilight Markets continue to be a success and bring huge crowds to the township. The event organisers are requesting:

 

1.   Closure of Mullumbimbi Street Brunswick Heads, between The Terrace and Park Street as follows:

 

a)    Closure of the area bounded by the nose-in parking and centre parking bay from 7am until 11pm. This is the "U" shaped provision for parking that is adjacent Banner Park in the vicinity of the children's play area.

 

b)    Request for 2 temporary designated ‘Disabled Parking’ spots outside of the hotel during the morning. The existing 2 spots will have been closed off.

 

c)    Closure of the remaining section of ‘through road’ between The Terrace and Park Street from 12 noon until 11pm.

 

2.   Opening of Memorial Park for parking as follows:

 

a)    Twilight markets – Wednesday, 14 December 2016 from 12noon. This will allow stallholders to get their vehicles off the street before the markets start at 3pm.

 

b)    Fireworks Night – Saturday, 14 January 2017 from 6pm. This will allow for people attending the carnival/housie and through to when the fireworks take place at 9pm to park off the streets.

 

Appropriately accredited (JHA) staff will be requested to put out the early blockades and the temporary designated ‘Disabled Parking’ signs as per the TCP (Figure 1). Market staff will relocate the blockades at 12 noon. Market staff will also remove the road closed and Disabled Parking signs at the end of the event.

 

As in the past McGregor’s Amusements will move their ‘ride’ during the night of Tuesday 13 December 2016 and place it over the centre parking bays for erection the following afternoon. This effectively blocks off most of the area as mentioned in Item 1, and the early road closure will ensure that vehicles are not parked indefinitely in the area.

 

It is requested that the application and TCP from the Brunswick Valley Woodchop & Entertainment Committee Inc for Twilight Markets, which includes the temporary road closure of Mullumbimbi Street Brunswick Heads, to be held Wednesday 14 December 2016 be endorsed.

BYRON SHIRE COUNCIL

Local Traffic Committee Meeting                                                                                  6.10

 

 

Report No. 6.10           Extension of School Bus Route - Pearces Road and Booyong Road, Booyong

File No:                        I2016/990

 

Council has received an application (E2016/83217) from Mr Gavin Beaumont, Operator of Beaumont Buses, to extend the existing school bus route N0120 that currently runs along Houghlahans Creek Road (which is situated in the Lismore Shire).

 

Figure 1 indicates the proposed bus route extension into the Byron Shire, which will operate both in the morning to pick the school children up and in the afternoon when dropping the school children off. It is proposed that the bus route is extended (red line) into Pearce Road before turning right onto Booyong Road.  The bus will then follow Booyong Road until it reaches the intersection at Booyong Road, Tooheys Mill Road and Cooks Road (yellow dot), where it will complete a three-point turn before backtracking along the same route to eventually exit back onto Houghlahans Creek Road.

 

The proposed extension will service up to 8 children using a 9.5m bus. The operator would like to have approval for buses up to 12.5m in length to allow for use of hired buses in the event that the regular 9.5m bus is out of service.

 

Figure 1 – Proposed Bus Route Extension into Byron Shire

 

 

The Byron Shire portion of Pearce Road (# 551) is a rural sealed road of approximately 920m in length in Booyong.  The section of Booyong Road (# 511) indicated is a rural sealed road of approximately 3.9kms in length in Booyong.

 

On Thursday 22 September 2016, Council officers conducted an inspection of the proposed route and found that there were a number of locations along Booyong Road that would not allow two-way traffic irrespective of whether travelling by car or bus.  However, it is noted that there are currently two school bus services (#N0124 and #N0256) that utilise this section of Booyong Road.

 

During the inspection it was found that there was insufficient sight distance for a bus to conduct a safe three-point turn at the location proposed by the applicant. Alternatively, it is recommended that the bus continue along Tooheys Mill Road before once again meeting up with Houghlahans Creek Road (Figure 2). It is noted that there is a section of Tooheys Mill Road that can flood in extreme weather, at which time the bus may need to complete a three-point turn at the previously proposed intersection.

 

Figure 2 – Proposed Alternate Route

 

   

 

Committee endorsement is sought for the extension of the existing school bus route into Pearce Road and Booyong Road.

 

  

 

RECOMMENDATION:

That Council note:-

 

1.   The Local Traffic Committee has no objection to the proposed extension of the school bus route along Pearce Road and Booyong Road in Booyong;

 

2.   The bus would enter Pearce Road from Houghlahans Creek Road, before turning right onto Booyong Road and then continuing along Tooheys Mill Road to meet up once again with Houghlahans Creek Road.

Report No. 6.11           Event Road Closure - Soul Street New Year's Eve and First Sun New Year's Day, Byron Bay

File No:                        I2016/992

 

Two key strategies of the ‘Safe Summer in the Bay’ initiative adopted by Council include the Soul Street New Year’s Eve (NYE) family friendly event on 31 December 2016, and the First Sun New Year’s Day (NYD) meditation/yoga event on the 1 January 2017.

 

New Year’s Eve

Council last year (2015) held the third annual ‘Soul Street’ NYE event which required a road closure of the main street of Byron Bay, being Jonson Street, between Lawson Street through to the car park entry at Railway Park just north of Marvell Street. The same road closure is now sought for the 2016 NYE event to be held Saturday 31 December 2016 with the southern end to close from 12noon and the northern end from 1pm. The road closure would then be lifted no later than 7am the following morning (1 January 2017).

 

Other closures are shown in Figure 1, such as securing of Council owned and operated public car park (Lawson Street south car park) for participants of the event only (e.g. stall holders) and provision of an emergency vehicle access route under guidance of traffic control personnel positioned at sites 2 and 3. Removal of parking from streets (as per dotted red line) from 6am will also occur as will traffic control personnel which include two at each of the sites (1, 2 and 3) as per previous years, but with an additional two personnel located at the roundabout at the intersection of Fletcher Street & Lawson Street. Please note that a roster for traffic control personnel will accompany the final approved Traffic Control Plan.

 

Figure 1 – Traffic Control Plan concept

 

In addition, Council will run a NYE shuttle service between 3pm and 3am from the Cavanbah Sports Centre on Ewingsdale Road (3km west of town) to the site depicted in Figure 2 (e.g. at the top end of the street closure).

 

Figure 2 provides details on the role of the traffic controllers to be positioned during the day at sites 1 and 2, noting when two personnel are at each site they will assist with control of pedestrian and vehicle movement at the roundabout at the intersection of Jonson Street & Lawson Street.

 

Figure 2 – TCP for Site 1 and Site 2

 

Figure 3 – TCP for Site 3

 

It should be noted the road closure impacts on local taxi and bus operators and interstate coach services. As in the past, these stakeholders will be advised directly and accommodated where possible, noting this NYE the main bus/coach stop will be for taxi and smaller passenger service vehicles only while the bus/coach and larger vehicles will be provided for south of the main stop so as they avoid the turn-around south end of the road closure and can exit directly via Marvell Street. Both south and north bound vehicles can use this temporary bus/coach stop if they wish by detouring or alternatively (as local services do) use the existing southbound bus stop opposite.

 

Figure 4 – TCP for Detour and Temporary Coach/Bus Stop

 

 

 

New Year’s Day

This year, on 1 January 2016, the First Sun NYD event was held for the first time at the Cape Byron Lighthouse. It was a very successful event with approximately 400 – 500 people attending and it is proposed that the same event be held again on Sunday 1 January 2017.

 

During the last event, vehicles parked on both sides of Lighthouse Road leading up to Cape Byron Lighthouse and pedestrians walked in large groups along the road. To minimise the impact on traffic flow, a traffic control plan (Figure 5) has been developed for Lighthouse Road.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Figure 5 – TCP for Lighthouse Road

 

It is requested that the TCP for both the NYE & NYD events, which includes the temporary road closures described above in Byron Bay, to be held Saturday 31 December 2016 and Sunday 1 January 2017 respectively be endorsed.

  

 

RECOMMENDATION:

1.       That the Local Traffic Committee supports:

 

a.       Council's temporary traffic management initiatives for the Soul Street New Year's Eve event to be held in Byron Bay and approves the temporary road closure of Jonson Street, between Lawson Street through to the car park entry at Railway Park (north of Marvell Street), from 12noon on Saturday 31 December 2016 and its removal by no later than 7am on the Sunday 1 January 2017.

 

b.      Council’s temporary traffic management initiatives for the First Sun New Year’s Day event to be held in Byron Bay and approves the temporary road closure of Lighthouse Road from Brooke Road (The Pass), from 3am to 8am on Sunday 1 January 2017.

 

2.       That the approval provided in Part 1 remain subject to Council endorsement of the event prior to implementation and is subject to the following requirements:

 

a.       traffic control plans are designed and implemented by those with the appropriate NSW (RMS) accreditation;

 

b.      advertising is undertaken in accordance with the Roads Act, including the publication of a map and explanatory notes in a local newspaper and on Council's website;

 

c.       the letterbox drop of properties adjacent to and prior of the Jonson Street closure and Bay Street, Marvell Street and Byron Street parking changes; and

 

d.      all parties involved in Council's NYE events hold, or least covered by, appropriate and relevant levels of insurance and public liability cover as required by Council.

Report No. 6.13           Bayshore Drive - Proposed Bus Stop Relocation, No Stopping Signage and 30-minute Parking Time Limit

File No:                        I2016/1004

 

After consideration at the Local Traffic Committee (LTC) on the 24 June 2015 and subsequent Council resolution 15-350, on 16 July 2015 Council resolved as follows:

 

15-350

Resolved that Council adopt the following Committee Recommendation:

Report No. 6.10  Request for Time Limit, Bayshore Drive, Arts and Industry Estate,
Byron Bay

File No: I2015/577

 

1.       That ‘No Stopping’ apply for a 15m length on the west side of Bayshore Drive, north of Grevillea Street, Byron Bay.

 

2.       That ‘No Parking’ be signed for the length of the bus stop, which is to be demarcated by a single J-Pole, relocated south of its existing site on the west side of Bayshore Drive to 30m north of Grevillea Street, Byron Bay.

 

3.       That on the west side of Bayshore Drive, between 35m and 77m north of Grevillea Street, Byron Bay a 1P time limit be signed as effective Monday to Friday 9am to 6pm and Saturday 9am to 12.00 noon, conforming with such limits nearby.

 

4.       That consultation with all tenants with access to and from the west side of Bayshore Drive (between Grevillea Street and Banksia Street) and those on Banksia Drive (between Bayshore Drive and Acacia Street) be undertaken to ascertain support of adopting such time limits.

                          

 

Signage was installed on Monday 9 May 2016 as resolved in resolution 15-350. Due to the time elapsed between the original consultation, Council resolving on the matter and the installation of the signage it appears that local business requirements have changed and it seems resolution 15-350 is no longer appropriate for the current circumstances.

 

The matter has since been reviewed and to improve access to the local business the following improvements are recommended for the western side of Bayshore Drive, north of the intersection of Centennial Circuit, Bayshore Drive and Grevillea Street (refer to Figure 1):

 

1.   Relocation of the existing bus stop (yellow square) back to the original location near the child care centre (red square) located 77m north of the intersection.

 

2.   ‘No Stopping’ to be extended between 62m and 77m north of the intersection (yellow line) to allow easy of access to the relocated bus stop.

 

3.   30-minute parking time limit be signed between 0m and 35m north of the intersection (purple line), effective Monday to Friday 9am to 6pm and Saturday 9am to 12pm.

 

It is noted that there will be no change to the current 1P time limit between 35m and 62m north of the intersection (red line), as previously resolved in Part 3 of resolution 15-350.

 

Consultation has been undertaken with the residents and business owners along Bayshore Drive that will be affected by the proposed relocation and improvements, as well as bus companies. A consultation letter was sent on Friday 26 August 2016 regarding the above proposal and advising that written submissions could be made to the Council by close of business Tuesday 20 September 2016.

 

From this consultation Council received one submission (E2016/81717) on Sunday 4 September that was in support of the proposed improvements.

 

Figure 1 – Proposed Relocation of Bus Stop

 

 

  

 

RECOMMENDATION:

That on the western side of Bayshore Drive, north of the intersection of Centennial Circuit, Bayshore Drive and Grevillea Street:

a.   the bus stop (as demarcated by a single J-Pole) be relocated to approximately 77m north of the intersection.

 

b.   ‘No Stopping’ apply and be signed immediately south of the relocated bus stop, between 62m and 77m north of the intersection.

 

c.   30-minute parking time limit apply and be signed between 0m and 35m north of the intersection, effective Monday to Friday 9am to 6pm and Saturday 9am to 12pm.

Report No. 6.15           Installation of No Stopping Signage at The Farm and Byron Hospital - Ewingsdale Road, Ewingsdale

File No:                        I2016/1010

 

Vehicles are regularly parallel parking along the road reserve on the north side of Ewingsdale Road adjacent to The Farm, especially during peak times such as school holidays, etc.  This presents a number of safety concerns as the road is quite narrow and traffic banks up as vehicles slow down on approach to the hospital roundabout.

 

It is also noted that as part of the T2E Pacific Highway upgrade the Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) highlighted this section of Ewingsdale Road as an area to monitor.

 

To reduce the risks along this section of road and ensure safety it has been requested that both sides of Ewingsdale Road, between the roundabout at the Pacific Highway interchange and the  roundabout at the entry to the Byron Hospital, be signed as ‘No Stopping’ (red line/s) except for the existing Bus Stops (blue lines).

RECOMMENDATION:

That both sides of Ewingsdale Road, between the roundabout at the Pacific Highway interchange and the  roundabout at the entry to the Byron Hospital, be signed as ‘No Stopping’ except for the existing Bus Stops.

Report No. 8.3             10.2016.247.1 - Transport Depot - 25 Fowlers Lane, Bangalow

File No:                        I2016/1028

 

Council has received a Development Application (DA) for the operation of a Transport Depot at Fowlers Lane, Bangalow (McLeods Shoot). The site is used by Solo Waste for the transfer of waste. A previous approval applies to the site to use it as a depot but this will expire on the 1 July 2018 under DA10.2002.480.1. The approval requires works to be done including a turning lane into Fowlers Lane from the Pacific Highway and an upgrade to Fowlers Lane. These works have not been completed. The conditions of the previous consent are as follows:

 

a)   Roadworks to Fowlers Lane

The upgrading of Fowlers Lane, from the Pacific Highway to the access driveway, to Council’s standards with a minimum 7 metre wide sealed road pavement on a 8 metre wide formation. The roadway is to be widened at the intersection with the access driveway to provide an Austroads Type A right turn lane (figure 5.21) for traffic turning right into the access driveway and an Austroads desirable left turn treatment (figure 5.16) for traffic turning left into the access driveway.

b)   Roadworks to Fowlers Lane/Pacific Highway Intersection

The upgrading of the Fowlers Lane/Pacific Highway intersection to Austroads Standards, including the provision of a left turn deceleration lane on the Pacific Highway. Formal concurrence will be required from the RTA under section 138(2) of the Roads Act 1993. For this concurrence, an additional two (2) copies of the engineering construction plans must be submitted to Council, together with the following:

·          Detailed designs to Austroads Standards.

·          Pavement designs for road works.

·          Specification for construction.

·          Environmental management plan.

·          Review of Environmental Factors.

·          Traffic Control Plan.

 

The new DA includes a traffic impact report which indicates that the turning lane from Hinterland Way is not required. The traffic Impact report is attached for consideration. 

 

It is noted that other developers in Fowlers Lane are upgrading sections of this road. The section required by the previous approval is a missing link in these upgrade works.

 

Comments from the Local Traffic Committee (LTC) are sought on the development proposal and in particular any roads works that may be required to the local and regional road network.

 

  

 

RECOMMENDATION:

That the Committee consider the Development Application for the proposed Transport Depot at 25 Fowlers Lane Bangalow, and the need for any upgrading to Fowlers Lane and the Hinterland Way, and provide comments.
