Spruson Street, Neutral Bay - Proposed Parking Arrangements

Feedback closes 5pm Monday 18 February 2019

Background

It is Council’s understanding that buses are experiencing difficulties negotiating the narrow section of Spruson Street between Holdsworth Road and Phillips Street. With cars parked on both sides of the narrow section, bus operator has advised that this has caused difficulties when inbound and outbound services meet at the intersection and may result in potential collision with parked vehicles.

Council at its meeting on 27 August 2018 considered the matter and resolved to survey the residents of Spruson Street and surrounding streets with regard to the removal of three (3) parking spaces on the western side of Spruson Street between Holdsworth Road and Phillips Street to improve bus access and road safety.

As part of the proposal, it was found that there is an opportunity to compensate the parking loss by installing 90-degree angle parking on Spruson Street between property no. 50 and 68 where the road width is approximately 12.8m. Considering there are more driveways on the eastern side than the western side of the subject road section, it is proposed to install 90-degree angle parking on the western side to maximise parking (net increase of 13 spaces) and No Parking restrictions on the eastern side to maintain two-way traffic flow.

Further at its meeting on 7 September 2018, Council resolved to include an additional alternative option in the Spruson Street survey to install 2-hour timed parking on the eastern side of Spruson Street between Holdsworth Road and Phillips Street and in Phillips Street between Ben Boyd Road and Spruson Street to offset the proposed loss of 3 parking spaces in Spruson Street. Additionally, it is proposed to extend the 2-hour parking restrictions in Spruson Street to Colindia Avenue.

The use of 2-hour parking restrictions will prevent the long-term parking of commuters and businesses while still providing some flexibility for local residents and their visitors. Please note however under Council’s Resident Parking Policy some residents may not be eligible for a permit and there is a cost in obtaining a permit.

Information on Council’s Resident Parking Permit Policy, including eligibility and fees, can be found on Council’s website https://www.northsydney.nsw.gov.au/Council_Meetings/Forms/Parking or contact Customer Service on 9936 8100. 

The purpose of this survey is to determine if there is support to retain existing restrictions or change existing parking restrictions and configurations. The survey is not a voting form as such, but will assist in determining support for the parking arrangements proposed in your street.

It is expected that the results of this survey will be considered by the North Sydney Traffic Committee on Friday, 22 March 2019. All members of the community are welcome to attend this meeting.

Please refer to the plan in the Document Library.
