 The Shoalhaven Traffic Committee is a technical review committee, not a committee of Council under the Local Government Act 1993.  The Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) has delegated certain powers to Council under the Transport Administration Act 1988 (Section 50).  A condition of this delegation is that Council must take into account the Traffic Committee recommendations.

 

There are four formal members of the Traffic Committee, each of whom has a single vote only.  The members are representatives from:

 

If the RMS or NSW Police Force disagrees with any Traffic Committee recommendation, or Council’s resolution (on any Traffic Committee recommendation), they may lodge an appeal with the Regional Traffic Committee for determination.  The appeal must be lodged in writing within 14 days of the date of notification in writing.  Any action relative to any issue under appeal must cease until the matter is determined.  The Regional Traffic Committee is chaired by an independent chairperson and submissions and representations are welcomed from all interested parties.

 

Council cannot amend a Traffic Committee recommendation. The Council can only: adopt the Traffic Committee recommendation; not adopt the Traffic Committee recommendation, or request the Traffic Committee reconsider the issue.

GENERAL BUSINESS

 

TC18.84     Additional Item - No Stopping signs - Prince Alfred Street, Berry

Stuart Coughlan raised concerns in relation to the no stopping signs outside the Fire Station on Prince Alfred Street, Berry. With residents and visitors parking in that vicinity and unaware of the parking restrictions or not seeing the signs, can Council investigate?

That the General Manager (Director Assets & Works) be requested to arrange community consultation in relation the load limit being lifted on Myrtle Street, Milton to allow farmers to use this route.

TC18.90     No Stopping Zone - Driveways 72-74 Osborne Street, Nowra (PN 3509)

 

HPERM Ref:       D18/306093

 

Convenor:          Tom Dimec 

Attachments:     1.  No Stopping Zone - C3 Linemarking Plan - 72-74 Osborne St, Nowra   

Recommendation

That the General Manager (Director Assets & Works) be requested to arrange for the installation of 11m (approx) of No Stopping zone yellow edge (C3) line marking across the accesses of 72 and 74 Osborne Street, Nowra, as detailed in the attached plan.

 

 

Details

Council has been requested to review the parking between the driveway accesses of 72 and 74 Osborne Street, Nowra.

Council’s traffic unit staff inspected the location and noted that the space between the driveways of 72 and 74 Osborne Street is non-compliant as a parallel parking space (the existing space is only 3m in length, whereas the minimum length according to AS2890.5 is 5.4m).  Therefore, vehicles parking in this location would prevent safe entry and exit from the adjacent properties.

In general Council do not install No Stopping zones across private driveway accesses, however in this circumstance noting the impact to safe access it is proposed to install 11m (approx) of No Stopping zone yellow edge (C3) line marking across the accesses.

Consultation was undertaken with the affected residents and business owners. Two submissions were received in support of the proposal.

TC18.91     Bus Zone - Basil Street, South Nowra (PN 3510)

 

HPERM Ref:       D18/306103

 

Convenor:          Tom Dimec 

Attachments:     1.  Time Restricted Bus Zone   

Recommendation

That the General Manager (Director Assets and Works) be requested to arrange for the installation of  bus zone signage (time restricted to the hours of 7am-9am and 3pm-5pm) within the existing indented bays on Basil Street, South Nowra, as detailed in the attached plan.

 

 

Details

Council has been requested to install regulatory signage within the existing indented bus bays on Basil Street, South Nowra, adjacent to the Alpina Place intersection.

Community members have raised concerns that residents parking in these bays prevents the safe pick up and set down of school students by bus services.

To address the request, it is proposed to install time restricted bus zone signage within the existing indented bays on Basil Street, South Nowra to enable use of the bus bays by the local school bus service, ensuring that buses picking up/setting down do not interrupt through traffic flow on Basil Street.

Consultation was undertaken with the affected properties and bus companies that operate along the route and no objections were received. One submission was received in support of the proposal.
