4.    Deputations by Appointment

Part B

4.1      Ralph Ross, spoke on behalf of the Shirley Residents Association regarding the report at Item 6 which requests the Board to approve the installation of a pedestrian refuge island with kerb build out and 'No Stopping' restrictions on Marshland Road close to its intersection with Hercules Street. 

            Mr Ross advised that while the Association was very pleased with the installation of a pedestrian refuge island, it had some concerns about the proposed placement and visibility because of the bus stop.  The Association's preference was to move the east side bus stop further south and adjust the refuge island position.

            The Chairperson thanked Mr Ross for his deputation. 

 

5.    Presentation of Petitions

Part B

 

There was no presentation of petitions.

 

6.    Marshland Road Pedestrian Refuge Island

 

The Board considered a report seeking approval for the installation of a pedestrian refuge island with kerb build out and 'No Stopping' restrictions on Marshland Road close to its intersection with Hercules Street. 

Staff addressed the issues raised by Mr Ross in his deputation (item 4 refers) and assured the Board that for safety reasons the location proposed in the report for the pedestrian refuge was the best option.  To relocate the pedestrian refuge as requested by the Association would compromise right-turning into Hercules Street and Alma Place.

The Board was satisfied with the location of the placement of the pedestrian refuge island and adopted the staff recommendation.
