St Andrews Anglican College

Access & Parking (Nov 2009)

Traffic engineering advice was provided to St Andrews Anglican College at Peregian Springs to assess the existing car parking arrangements and access conditions within the site to ensure optimal functionality of the establishment is achieved for future development. The objective of the study was to provide adequate information to the Sunshine Coast Regional Council and Queensland Transport for a MCU development application to be assessed in accordance with the Maroochy Shire Planning Scheme. The assessment included the following scope of works;

  • Collection of traffic data and parking data;
  • Assessment of parking demand and utilisation during school peak periods;
  • Review of school activities generating traffic and parking demand;
  • Assessment of bus provision and bus services and compliance with Translink Guidelines;
  • Assessment of pedestrian provision and linkages internal and external to the school.
  • Compliance with AS2890.1, Council’s Planning Scheme and Translink Bus requirements.

Sunshine Coast Institute of TAFE

Car Parking Strategy

Traffic Engineering advice was provided to assess the existing car parking and access conditions within the site and future requirements for the site in order to ensure optimal functionality of the establishment is achieved. The scope of work included investigations of existing car parking spaces and occupancy, accessibility to and from the site for all modes of transport, impact of future development and recommendations for improvements. Smart travel initiatives were also encouraged.

Kinka Beach Master Plan Development

August 2012

Working as the traffic engineering consultant alongside the Town Planner and Civil Engineers to provide expert advice to gain preliminary approval for the Kinka Beach Master Planned Community. The proposed development includes over 650 residential allotments, a retirement village, caravan park, school, child care center, commercial center and sporting fields.

Scope of works included;

  • Site visit and investigation;
  • Collection of traffic data, crash data, other development potential and future transport planning;
  • Analysis of the development traffic generation and distribution to the external road network;
  • Internal traffic distribution and road hierarchy assessments;
  • External intersection analysis using Sidra;
  • Conceptual geometric design for proposed new intersections;
  • Analysis in the development 10 year planning horizon.

 

 

 


Coolum Streetscape Project – SCRC Council

Dec – June 2011

The provision of traffic engineering advice for the Coolum Village Streetscape Project at David Low Way, Coolum Beach for the Sunshine Coast Regional Council.

The objective of this study was to assess existing traffic conditions and analyse the impact of traffic management treatments proposed as part of the streetscape project.  The analysis included data collection of key intersections, sidra analysis of existing situations for the PM Peak period and also a sensitivity analysis of peak tourist traffic conditions.  An analysis of crash data was also undertaken to identify crash locations and crash types and ensure suitable treatments were included in the final intersection design.  An assessment of traffic distribution patterns within the Coolum Village as part of changes to the road network was undertaken and an analysis of the new intersections treatments (roundabouts) and recommendations for detailed design.  The scope of works also involved formal discussions between Council and DTMR.

 

 


Sidra Intersection Analysis for DTMR

March - May 2010

Scope of work consisted of the analysis of individual intersections in their current state using Sidra for the AM and PM Peak Periods.  Investigations were undertaken on-site to determine the geometric constraints at the intersections, including lane configurations and phasing.  Report provided included recommendations to enhance the operational performance of the network via provision of left turns, changes to signal phasing and/or geometric improvements both now and in a 10 year design horizon.
In scope:

  • AM and PM peak analysis calibrated to existing conditions;
  • Site visit to identify existing operations and geometric constraints including lane configurations;
  • Sidra analysis of the existing configuration and any recommended changes;
  • 10 year design horizon Sidra analysis for the existing configuration and any recommended changes;
  • A report for each intersection summarising the results of the analysis, details of any recommended changes and any other considerations to improve the operation performance of the road network.
