RECORD NUMBER:       2018/528

AUTHOR:                       Ian Greenham, Director Technical Services    




The City of Orange Traffic Committee held an electronic meeting on 1 March 2018 to consider line marking in Anson Street and the recommendation from that meeting is presented to the Infrastructure Policy Committee for adoption.

Link To Delivery/OPerational Plan

The recommendation in this report relates to the Delivery/Operational Plan strategy “15.1 Our Environment – Maintain and renew traffic and transport infrastructure assets and services as specified within the Asset Management Plan at agreed levels of service”.

Financial Implications


Policy and Governance Implications




That the recommendations made by the City of Orange Traffic Committee at its meeting held on 1 March 2018 be adopted.



further considerations

Consideration has been given to the recommendation’s impact on Council’s service delivery; image and reputation; political; environmental; health and safety; employees; stakeholders and project management; and no further implications or risks have been identified.


Regarding Item 2.1 Linemarking – Anson Street, and Anson Street/Moulder Street Roundabout, Council recently resealed and updated the line marking on Anson Street between Moulder Street and Torpy Street. As part of this works a central median adjacent to the Pedestrian and Children’s Crossing located outside of Orange Public School in Anson Street was removed. This has resulted in a number of complaints, and safety concerns have been raised by the Roads and Maritime Services regarding traffic behaviours around the crossing.

There is a long term plan for the installation of kerb extensions, however funding for these kerb extensions has not yet been obtained. Line marking has been designed as an immediate solution to address the safety concerns.

In addition to the line marking at the crossing, line marking has been designed for Anson Street/Moulder Street roundabout. The line marking at the roundabout was originally line marked as a two lane roundabout with two lane entry, circulating and exit on all four legs.

Without any visible line-marking, the roundabout does not appear to be being used this way by all road users. To provide consistency with other roundabouts in Orange, line marking has been developed for a two in one out roundabout. The line marking at the roundabout ties-in directly to the line marking for Anson Street, and a one lane exit would further assist in addressing the safety issues at the crossing on Anson Street.
