    Council undertook community engagement with residents in Brighton Street, Wyndora Avenue, Johnson Street and Soldiers Avenue regarding the proposed traffic calming devices. A letter explaining the scheme was posted to 255 residents on 1 September 2016 seeking residents’ views on the proposal in their street.

    The proposal was also included in Council’s YourSay website and advertised in the Manly Daily on 17 September 2016. A copy of the proposals and relevant reports were also made available for viewing at Council’s Customer Service Centre in Dee Why.

    Submissions closed on 4 October 2016, and 27 submissions were received.

    Included in the responses were suggestions for additional measures or alternatives to the proposed raised thresholds. Those against the proposal also raised concerns such as noise and pollution resulting from vehicles decelerating and accelerating when negotiating the devices. They also raised issues such as loss of on-street parking and drainage.

    An additional traffic count and speed survey undertaken in this area showed that overall speeds have decreased since 2007. Similarly a review of the traffic accident database indicated an improvement compared to the review undertaken in 2007.

    Having considered the residents’ feedback and the favourable results of the traffic survey and traffic accident data, the Northern Beaches Local Traffic Committee resolved not to proceed with the traffic calming devices in Brighton Street, Wyndora Avenue, and Soldiers Avenue.

    The proposed upgrade of the school children's crossing to a wombat crossing in Johnson Street was supported, and construction works were completed in June 2017.

  • Background

    over 1 year ago

    In January 2007, former Warringah Council undertook a comprehensive resident survey in the Harbord area to gauge the level of resident support for a proposed Local Area Traffic Management Scheme (LATMS) in the area bounded by Harbord Road, Lawrence Street, Oliver Street and Brighton Street.

    The result of the survey showed a majority of support for the LATMS. The former Warringah Traffic Committee and Warringah Council subsequently endorsed the LATMS and the proposed traffic facilities were included in Council’s Future Works Ledger at Priority 4 – “Desirable” with priority to be given to works on Harbord Road and Oliver Street.

    Consequently stage 1 of the LATMS in Harbord Road and Oliver Street was completed between 2007 and 2014.

    Further information including the former Warringah Traffic Committee reports on the proposal is available for viewing at Council’s Customer Service, Civic Centre 725 Pittwater Road Dee Why and on Council’s website www.northernbeaches.nsw.gov.au
