Houston Road, Kingsford - Lighting Level Assessment

 

 

DATE:

REPORT BY:            DIRECTOR ASSET & INFRASTRUCTURE SERVICES    

 

INTRODUCTION:

 

Council, at its meeting held on 26 November 2002, resolved that:

 

“Council request Energy Australia to review street lighting levels in Houston Road, Kingsford with a view to improving current unsatisfactory lighting”

 

ISSUES:

 

In response to the above resolution of Council, Energy Australia were requested in December 2002 to undertake an assessment of the lighting levels in Houston Road, Kingsford, between Day Avenue and Gardeners Road.

 

Energy Australia advised on 30 January 2003 that the assessment of required lighting levels for Houston Road, Kingsford was made more complex due to the width of the road reserve and the nature of the intersections at Barker Street, Strachan Street and Borrodale Road.

 

As a result, it was requested that Energy Australia provide a written revised budget estimate for the assessment and re-design of lighting within Houston Road, Kingsford and a rough estimate for likely construction costs. A copy of this correspondence is attached.

 

The revised budget estimate provided by Energy Australia for the assessment and re-design of the lighting system in Houston Road, Kingsford was $1,700 for the investigation with pre-design estimated construction cost of approximately $20,000.  Energy Australia also stated that the abovementioned estimated costs may vary substantially.

 

In addition to the above, it should be noted that SSROC with Energy Australia are currently involved in the investigation of the compliance of street lighting systems across Councils with current Australian Street Lighting Standards. This SSROC project is ongoing however the outcome may assist in negotiations on better lighting solutions for the City as a whole.

CONCLUSION:

 

The lighting system currently existing in Houston Road, Kingsford is similar to that which can be found throughout most residential streets within Randwick City Council and other established areas of Sydney. However, due to the width if the road reserve in Houston Road, Kingsford and the complexity of intersections at Borrodale Road, Strachan Street and Barker Street, there is the potential for the current lighting system not be compliant with current Australian Street Lighting Standards. It is also possible that for the reasons mentioned above, the re-design of the lighting system may exceed the estimate provided by Energy Australia.

 

In addition, it may be only seen of value to engage Energy Australia to investigate and re-design the lighting system in Houston Road, Kingsford to meet current standards if Council is willing to allocate funds for the implementation of the design provided in the near future.

 

RECOMMENDATION:

 

That:

 

1.)        Council engage Energy Australia to undertake an investigation and subsequent re-design of the street lighting system in Houston Road, Kingsford; and

 

2.)        Council consider the allocation of a provisional amount of $20,000 in the 2003/2004 Capital Works Programme for the repair/replacement of street lighting in Houston Road, Kingsford.

Director Asset & Infrastructure Services' Report 09/2003

 

 

SUBJECT:

MAROUBRA BEACH PAVILION - PUBLIC TOILETS UPGRADE

 

 

DATE:

27 February, 2003

FILE NO:

98/S/0882

 

 

REPORT BY:            DIRECTOR ASSET & INFRASTRUCTURE SERVICES   

 

INTRODUCTION:

 

At the Works Committee Meeting held on 11th February 2003 the Committee resolved:

 

“ That a report be brought before the next Works Committee meeting on the maintenance works on the public toilets in the Maroubra Beach Pavilion building”

 

In response to the resolution this report details the current status of the maintenance of the toilets and recommends works to upgrade the toilets.

 

ISSUES:

 

BACKGROUND

Maroubra Beach Pavilion Public Toilets include male, female and disable toilets including change-rooms and showers. These toilets are the only available public facilities for the central area of Maroubra Beach, as such they are intensely used particularly in the summer months. The interior of the toilets are in an aged condition, this exacerbates the ability of the maintenance staff to keep them at a reasonable standard. An assessment has been made of the toilets and contract documentation has been completed. Due to availability of funds only a partial upgrade is intended at this time during the current budget period.

 

The upgrade of the toilets will require at least partial closure of the toilets and this work cannot be carried out in the summer months.

 

Full Upgrade of toilets incl  Female , Male and Disabled Toilet

This would bring the toilets up to a similar standard of the more recently refurbished toilets at the northern end of the beach. The scope of work for a full upgrade  of the toilets would consist of the following :

 

Male and Female Toilets

·          Clean existing toilet pans & urinal to remain

·          Installation of new vanities, basins, tapware & mirrors

·          Installation of new baby change bench to female toilets

·          Installation of new toilet & shower partitions

·          Installation of new toilet roll dispensers

·          Installation of new shower heads & tapware

·          Installation of new bench seats & support frames

·          Installation of new coat hooks

·          Installation of new floor tiles & floor wastes

·          Installation of new wall tiles – full height on all internal walls

·          Paint pre-painted wall & roof structure surfaces with anti graffiti paint

·          Paint paving paint to concrete

 

Disabled Toilet 

·          Demolition of existing vanity mirror, toilet roll holder, basin, toilet & grab rails

·          Cap services to existing WC & basin. Chase as necessary. All pipe runs to be concealed.

·          Replace door to service duct

·          Replace entry door to toilet

·          Installation of new WC & basin and relocate services.

·          Installation of new vanity mirror, toilet roll holder, basin, toilet & grab rails

·          Paint pre-painted wall & roof structure surfaces

·          Paint paving paint to concrete

 

The works described above would allow the maintenance staff to more efficiently maintain the toilets to a good standard. The cost estimate for the completion of the above described works is $80 000 to $100 000. Currently capital works funding is not available to complete the full upgrade of the toilets.

 

Partial Upgrade of Toilets incl Female , Male (excludes any work to the Disabled Toilet )

A reduced scope of work has been investigated and documents are complete to allow for the calling of quotes.  This scope would vary from the full scope as follows:

 

·              Excludes all painting on walls, inc anti – graffiti seal

·              Excludes painting of floor, 

·              Benches would not be replaced

·              Partitions will not be replaced

·              Partial Wall Tiling – walls will only be tiled ie in the toilet area and shower cubicles to a height of 2400.

·              No work would be undertaken in the Disable Toilet

·              All other would be as per the full upgrade of the toilets

 

The cost estimate for this scope of work would be in the vicinity of $50 000. These funds can be made available from the current maintenance budget.

 

CONCLUSION:

 

The partial upgrade of the toilets would provide some improvement to the presentation of the Maroubra Beach Pavilion toilets. However such issues such as cleaning of the wall and floor would continue to be exacerbated by the unsuitable and aged surfaces. A full upgrade would result in the toilets being well presented and easily cleaned at this highly visible Council asset.

 

The works associated with the partial upgrade will occur in April 2003 when beach patronage is lower.

 

Further upgrade works to the toilets will occur after June 2003 if funds are identified in the 2003-2004 Council budget.

 

RECOMMENDATION:

 

1.         That Council notes that the partial upgrade to the Maroubra Pavilion toilets will commence in April, 2003.

 

2.         That Council include for consideration in the 2003/2004 budget $50,000 to complete the full upgrade of the Maroubra Beach Pavilion Toilets.
