Director Asset & Infrastructure Services' Report 78/2002

 

 

SUBJECT:

AUSTRAL STREET, MALABAR - TRAFFIC CONDITIONS

 

 

DATE:

25 June, 2002

FILE NO:

R/0046/02

 

 

REPORT BY:            DIRECTOR ASSET & INFRASTRUCTURE SERVICES    

 

INTRODUCTION:

 

A letter has been received from Walter and Mary Clarke of 23 Austral Street relating to traffic conditions in Austral Street, Malabar. 

 

ISSUES:

 

The problem relates to vehicles parking in the kerbside lane near the crest in Austral Street between Ireton Street and Raglan Street. The carriageway width is only 9 metres wide and as a result of the narrow width, vehicles are travelling on the wrong side of the double centrelines over the crest of the road creating a dangerous situation.

 

It is also stated that it is difficult to exit driveways when vehicles are parked in the kerbside lane.

 

CONCLUSION:

 

It is illegal to park in the kerbside lane under the current arrangements as these vehicles would be within the statutory 3 metres from double centrelines however to reinforce the restriction and prevent an incident it is appropriate to install a section of ‘No Stopping’ on both sides of Austral Street in front of  No’s 17 to 37.

 

This matter was considered by the Randwick Traffic Committee at its meeting held on 11 June 2002, when it was recommended:

 

“That:

 

1.   ‘No Stopping’ restrictions be signposted on both sides of Austral Street in front of  No’s 17 to 37.

 

2.   The affected residents be notified of Council’s decision.”

 

 

 

RECOMMENDATION:

 

That:

 

1.       ‘No Stopping’ restrictions be signposted on both sides of Austral Street in front of  No’s 17 to 37.

 

2.       The affected residents be notified of Council’s decision.
