1. Introduction
1.1 Background
In accordance with Launceston Planning Scheme requirements a Traffic Impact Assessment
(TIA) is required to be submitted with the development application for the proposed 15
residential lots and 1 road lot subdivision at 68 Victoria Street, Youngtown. The TIA must
provide details as follows:
◼ Anticipated additional traffic and pedestrian movements
◼ The significance of the impact of these movements on the existing road network
◼ Any changes required to accommodate the additional traffic

The TIA has been prepared based on Department of State Growth (DSG) guidelines.

1.2 Objectives
A Traffic Impact Assessment is a means for assisting in the planning and design of
sustainable development proposals that consider:
◼ Safety
◼ Capacity
◼ Equity and social justice
◼ Economic efficiency
◼ The environment
◼ Future development
This report considers traffic projections to 10 years beyond the opening of the development.

1.3 Scope of Traffic Impact Assessment (TIA)


This TIA considers in detail the impact of the proposal on the road network at the proposed
access location and includes consideration of the impact on the Victoria Street/Hobart Road
junction and the Raglan Street/Kings Meadows Link roundabout.

3. Proposed Development, Planning Scheme


and Road Owner objectives
3.1 Description of Proposed Development
A 16-lot subdivision at 68 Victoria Street, Youngtown is proposed on Victoria Street approx.
600m west of the Hobart Road junction. 15 new lots will be accessed from a proposed access
road approx. 160m in length while the existing Lot 1 is directly accessed from Victoria Street,
with the main driveway to the garage 38m from the new access road and the driveway to the
backyard 14m from the new access road.
The proposed subdivision subdivides the land into typically 700-800m2 size lots, with the
exception of Lot 15 (1409m2), Lot 10 (2600m2) and the existing Lot 1.

3.2 Council Planning Scheme


The proposed development involves land currently zoned General Residential under the
Launceston Interim Planning Scheme 2015. See Figure 4.
Figure 4 – Launceston Interim Planning Scheme 2015

3.3 Local Road Network Objectives


To ensure that safe and efficient roads are operated and maintained, and development is
provided for in an orderly manner minimising conflicts between sensitive uses and major
roads in accordance with the Launceston Interim Planning Scheme 2015.

3.4 State Road Network Objectives


To ensure safe and efficient operation is maintained.
The Kings Meadows Link is a Category 3 State Road under the jurisdiction of the Department
of State Growth (DSG). Road development affecting State Roads must be in accordance with
the Road and Railway Code E4 in the Launceston Interim Planning Scheme 2015.

4. Existing Conditions
4.1 Transport Network
The transport network adjacent to the proposal consists of Victoria Street, Raglan Street,
various local access roads, Hobart Road and Kings Meadows Link.

The Kings Meadows Link – Midland Highway route provides the most direct access to the
proposed site from Launceston. The highway is built to a high standard and is the shortest
route in terms of time and distance. Hobart Road provides access to local services such as
schools, shopping centres and recreational areas. It is estimated that 20% of traffic
movements associated with the proposal will travel via Raglan Street to the Kings Meadows
Link roundabout while 80% will travel via Victoria Street to Hobart Road.

The Raglan Street / Kings Meadows Link roundabout is a state road intersection.

The Victoria Street / Hobart Road junction is a council road intersection.

4.1.1 Victoria Street / new access road junction


Victoria Street is 9.5m wide and carries some 2400 vehicles per day.

To the west Victoria Street continues as Raglan Street around a corner that is 85m from the
proposed access road. Consequently, the sight distance to the right for a vehicle approaching
Victoria Street from the access road is 85m, as shown in Figure 5. Sight distance to the east is
125m, as shown in Figure 6.

4.1.2 Victoria Street school zone and crossing


Data collected by TCS on Friday 7th December 2018 reveals that the school crossing on
Victoria Street serves about 30 pedestrians and 120 vehicles during the morning school peak
between 8:30-9:00.

Parallel parking is available on marked bays on both sides of Victoria Street, with 2 bays on
the southern side of the road reserved for disabled parking and 4 bays restricted to 5 minutes
for pickup/drop-off during school peak hours.

The sight distance of the eastern approach is adequate, whereas the sight distance on the
eastern approach is limited to 47m due to the crest of the road (the minimum sight distance
acceptable is 45m).

The western approach to the school zone currently has non-electronic school zone signage, as
shown in Figure 8. This should be replaced with electronic signage by the Department of
State Growth, the responsible authority.

Figure 8 – Western approach to school zone on Victoria Street

4.1.3 Hobart Road / Victoria Street junction


Hobart Road is 12.3m wide and carries some 11000 vehicles per day near the junction of
Victoria Street.

To the south of Victoria Street, Hobart Road features bicycle facilities on both sides of the
road with a median S treatment for right turn movements. To the north, past Highgate Street,
the width of road remains the same but the bicycle lanes are replaced by wider parking bays,
and consequently there are no medians.

Sight distance from Victoria Street along Hobart Road is 110m to the right and extensive to
the left, as shown in Figures 9-10. The approach sight distance is very long.

4.1.4 Kings Meadows Link / Raglan Street roundabout


The Kings Meadows Link is a Category 3 State Road under the jurisdiction of the Department
of State Growth (DSG). The road network connection to the roundabout via Raglan Street is
not currently accessible, however it is to be expected within the next 10 years with the
ongoing developments in Raglan Street.

4.2 Traffic Activity

4.2.1 School Crossing on Victoria Street


Traffic count data collected by the Launceston Council in Feb 2008 reveals a peak hour
traffic of 304 veh/h.
A traffic survey was conducted by TCS on Friday 7th Dec 2018 at the school crossing on
Victoria Street.

am peak hour traffic movements


• West bound traffic 126

• East bound traffic 112

• South bound pedestrians 28

• North bound pedestrians 5


Total hourly vehicle count 238
Total hourly pedestrian count 33

As a guide annual average daily traffic is in the order of 10 times the peak hour traffic.
The counts provide evidence that the daily traffic volume on Victoria Street is in the order of
2400 vehicles per day.

4.3 Crash History

The DSG is supplied with reported crashes by Tasmania Police. The DSG maintains a crash
database from the crash reports which is used to monitor road safety, identify problem areas
and develop improvement schemes. See Appendix A.
The 5-year crash history for the vicinity of the site reveals 3 crashes along Victoria Street
relating to parked cars. One resulted in minor injuries while the other two resulted in property
damage only. Another crash classified “other on path” resulted in property damage only.
3 crashes have been reported at the Victoria Street / Hobart Road junction: one involving a
vehicle rolling backwards which resulted in property damage only, one rear end crash that
resulted in minor injuries, and the other involving two right turning vehicles which resulted in
minor injuries.
No crashes relating to the school crossing has been reported.

4.4 Services

Overhead power supply exists on the northern side of Victoria Street at the proposed junction
site and it is noted that the supporting poles are clear of where the junction is proposed. A
sewerage maintenance hole is located near the proposed access and is to be taken into
consideration for the design of the access road junction.

4.5 Road Safety Review

4.5.1 Victoria Street school crossing

Based on the Safe System Approach and using the Safe System Assessment framework the
pedestrian crash risk for the school crossing is assessed as follows:

• Crash exposure is considered low/medium (some activity during peak) i.e. score 2/4

• Crash likelihood is considered low (school zone, drivers are alert) i.e. score 1/4

• Crash severity is considered low/medium (low speed, small children) i.e. score 2/4

This amounts to a total score of 4/64 which is a low score and indicates a low risk.

The proposal will not change the crash risk score. Exposure will be increased but not to a
significant extent (5%).

without the consent of the copyright owner.

4.5.2 Victoria Street / Hobart Road junction

Hobart Road is a medium speed (60km/h), high volume (11000 vehicles per day) urban road.
Footpaths for pedestrians are provided, and bicycle facilities are available on the section of
Hobart Road on the southern side of Victoria Street. The 5-year crash history records no
serious or fatal crashes for the junction (only minor crashes). Figure 11 summarises results of
a safe system assessment of the existing situation. The total score of 54/448 is considered a
low risk score.

The proposed subdivision developments have been accessed to have no impact on the Safe
System Assessment scores. The traffic generated by the development will increase the
exposure a little but has minimal impact on the risk score.

4.5.3 Raglan Street / Kings Meadows Link roundabout

The proposed subdivision is not expected to significantly affect the safety of the roundabout.
Crash exposure will increase due to some traffic utilising the roundabout, but the change is
negligible in relation to the proposed future developments in the Raglan Street area.

5. Traffic Generation and Assignment


This section of the report describes how traffic generated by the proposal is distributed within
the adjacent road network now (2018) and in ten years (2028).

5.1 Traffic Growth


5.1.1 Victoria Street
Data collected by Launceston Council in Feb 2008 reveals a peak hour traffic of 300 vph

Data collected by TCS in Dec 2018 provides evidence of peak hour traffic at 240 vph

This growth trend suggests that annual traffic is decaying by 2% per year, however for
conservativeness the growth rate is assumed to be +0.5% per year to account for the adjacent
developments at Raglan Street and other potential vehicle movements. Low numbers of
adjacent developments, and hence traffic growth, can be expected in the region.

The peak hour traffic in 2028 can be expected to be in the order of 250 vph

5.1.2 Hobart Road


Data collected by Launceston Council in May 2012 reveals a peak hour traffic of 1300 vph

Data collected by TCS in Dec 2018 provides evidence of peak hour traffic at 1100 vph.

For the same reasons as Victoria Street, the growth rate for Hobart Road is assumed to be
+0.5% per year, and the peak hour traffic in 2028 can be expected to be in the order of 1150
vph.

5.2 Trip Generation


Traffic generation rates are sourced from the RTA Guide to Traffic Generating Developments
2002.

For dwelling houses traffic generation rates are 9 daily trips per house with 0.85 peak hour
vehicle trips.

For 15 new lots this amounts to 135 trips per day with 13 trips during the peak hour.

5.3 Trip Assignment


5.3.1 New access road to Victoria Street
This new junction will provide access to the 15 new lots.

It is estimated that 80% of traffic generated by the subdivision will enter right in or depart left
out due to proximity of local services. Figure 12 shows assigned traffic.

5.3.2 Victoria Street to Hobart Road


Background Hobart Road annual traffic growth of 0.5% has been assumed and projected
contribution of the new subdivision traffic assigned.

Based on collected data it is estimated that 90% of traffic generated by the subdivision that
travels via Victoria Street will exit left at Hobart Road towards local services in the region.

6. Impact on Road Network


6.1 Impact of traffic generated by the proposed development
This section considers the performance of the key road infrastructure in 2018 and compared
with estimated performance in 2028 based on background traffic growth of 0.5% annually
and the traffic generated by the proposed development. The new access road / Victoria Street
and the Victoria Street / Hobart Road junctions are considered the most important to analyse.
The Victoria Street / Hobart Road junction was analysed with the latest SIDRA 7 Intersection
analysis software. See Appendix C.

6.1.1 Hobart Road – Victoria Street junction


Hobart Road carries around 11,000 vehicles per day, while the volume of traffic on Victoria
Street is around 2,400 vehicles per day. The volumes of traffic involved is relatively low and
analysis confirms that the proposal will have a minimal impact on this junction.
On the Victoria Street approach to the junction, the 10% that turn right will experience Level
of Service C during the am and pm peaks. This is acceptable since level of service A is
achieved overall for the combined left and right turn. All other movements experience Level
of Service A. See Appendix C for detailed results. The analysis provides evidence that the
proposal should not cause any capacity or safety issues.

6.1.2 Raglan Street – Kings Meadows Link roundabout


The proposed subdivision is considered to have negligible impact on this roundabout in terms
of traffic capacity. Approximately 20% of traffic generated from the proposed development
(i.e. 27 vehicle movements per day) can be expected to utilise the roundabout. This is
negligible compared to the proposed future developments in the Raglan Street area which will
likely have the majority of traffic movements travel via the roundabout.

6.2 Sight Distance requirements


Sight distance requirements are summarised in Figure 14 below.

6.3 Proposed Victoria Street / Hobart Road Junction layout

The standard of junction required is based on Austroads Guidelines which take into account
the standard of the road, speed limit and volume of through and side road traffic. Figure 15
shows the junction warrant. The red and blue dots indicate the type of treatment required for
the left and right turn movements from Hobart Road onto Victoria Street respectively, in
2028:
• The red dot indciates a BAL type left turn treatment is warranted. The current layout
allows through traffic to slip past a slowed left turning car and therefore considered
acceptable.
• The blue dot indicates a CHR(s) type right turn treatment is warranted. The existing
S-treatment effectively serves the purpose of a CHR(s) junction layout and therefore
considered acceptable.
Figure 15 – Austroads Junction Warrants

Type BAL junction is warranted based on the left turn volume and through volume during
the am peak hour in 2028. The current layout is considered wide enough and acceptable as
left turn volume is very low and expected to cause minimal delay to through traffic.

• Major road traffic 542veh/hr (north bound only)


• Left turn volume 13veh/hr
Type CHR(s) junction is warranted based on the right turn volume and through volume
during the pm peak hour in 2028. The existing S-treatment may be retained as it effectively
serves the purpose of a CHR(s) junction layout

• Major road traffic 1024veh/hr


(north and south bound)
• Right turn volume 114veh/hr

6.4 Launceston Interim Planning Scheme 2015

6.4.1 E4 Road and Railway Assets Code requirements

• Section E4.5.1 Existing road accesses and junctions


Acceptable solution A3 is not satisfied as movements to and from the site where the
speed limit is 60km/h or less must not increase by more than 20% or 40 vehicle
movements per day whichever is greater.

The existing access is not currently utilised, and from section 5.2 of this report, the
proposal will generate 135 new vehicle movements per day which exceeds 40.

Performance Criteria P3 is satisfied as the increase is considered safe and will not have
any adverse impact on the efficiency of the road. See discussion in section 6.1.1 of this
report and Appendix C which summarises results of analysis. The proposal will have
minimal impact on the operation of the Victoria Street and the junction with Hobart Road
with most turning movements operating at Level of Service A.

• Section E4.6.2 Road accesses and junctions

Acceptable solution A2 is satisfied for the new access road junction as the proposal
creates not more than one access providing both entry and exit where the speed limit is
60km/h or less.

New accesses to Lots 2-16 must satisfy E4.6.2 of the Launceston Interim Planning
Scheme 2015.

• Section E4.6.4 Sight distance at accesses, junctions and level crossings

Acceptable solution A2 is satisfied because sight distances at the new access road
junction complies with Table E4.6.4 of the Launceston Interim Planning Scheme 2015,
see section 4.1.1 and 6.2 of this report.

6.4.2 E6 Parking and Sustainable Transport Code requirements

• Section E6.5.1 Car parking numbers

Acceptable solution to be provided in accordance with Table E6.1:

o 15 lots (2 or more bedrooms) at 2 spaces per lot – i.e. 30 spaces

o visitor parking for 15 lots at 1 space per 3 lots – i.e. 5 spaces

Total 35 spaces required

7. Recommendations and Conclusions


This traffic impact assessment has been prepared to assess the proposed 68 Victoria Street
subdivision at Youngtown in accordance with Launceston Interim Planning Scheme 2015
requirements.

It has been prepared following a review of available traffic and crash data, a Road Safety
Audit and Safe System Assessment, future growth projections for Hobart Road traffic,
standard codes and Austroads guidelines.

7.1 Road Safety Audit

Road Safety Audit and Safe System Assessment of Victoria Street at the school crossing and
the junction with Hobart Road identified no significant safety concerns.

7.2 Crash History

The 5-year reported crash history reveals four crashes along Victoria Street and three at the
intersection with Hobart Road. 3 of the 4 crashes on Victoria Street involved parked cars and
one crash involved a minor casualty. The crash history does not indicate a crash propensity or
any crashes at the west end of Victoria Street where the proposal is located.

7.3 Impact on the Victoria Street / Hobart Road junction

Analysis shows the proposed development will increase use of the junction, however the
existing junction standard is adequate to cope with the increase and no changes to the junction
are considered necessary due to the proposal.

7.4 School Zone

The western approach to the school zone currently has non-electronic school zone signage, as
shown in Figure 8 in section 4.1.2 of this report. School zone signage should be replaced by
40 Electronic school zone signage by the Department of State Growth to improve pedestrian
safety and reduce risk of crashes within the school zone.

7.5 Launceston Interim Planning Scheme requirements

Section 6.4 of this report demonstrates how Road and Railway Code E4 and Parking and
Sustainable Transport Code E6 Performance Criteria are satisfied.

Summary

Overall it has been concluded that based on the findings of this report and subject to the
recommendations contained in this report, the proposed subdivision can operate safely and
efficiently and is supported on traffic grounds.

Dear James,

RE – Bushfire Assessment – 68 Victoria St, Youngtown

You have commissioned me to carry out a bushfire hazard assessment for a 19 lot subdivision
for the above property.

The property of 68 Victoria St is made up of two titles, as illustrated below:

Figure 1 – site location

Figure 2 – The site from the public road

pitt&sherry ref: Bushfire Report/IA/dr 1


The site is serviced by sealed public road. It is located on the NE side of Victoria St.

There is a current dwelling on CT47787/1 and CT137357/1 has direct access from Victoria St. This will
form Lot 1 under the proposed subdivision plan.

Figure 3 – St Helens Point Road – site to the left – looking NE

The new subdivision road will have to be constructed to Council standards and will therefore comply
with the Bushfire Code regarding access arrangement.

The title details of the subject site are:

Property Address 68 Victoria St, Youngtown, TAS 7249


Property ID 3378332
Title Reference CT137357/1 and CT47787/1

There is reticulated water within Victoria St with a hydrant outside 68 Victoria St giving hose coverage
of less than 100m to the whole site. The new road to service the subdivision will require compliant
hydrants.

The area is typified by single dwellings on standard managed lots.

The first question to be considered in regard to this site is the proximity to a bushfire prone area.

A bushfire prone area is defined as:


bushfire-prone area means:
(a) land that is within the boundary of a bushfire-prone area shown
on an overlay on a planning scheme map; or
(b) where there is no overlay on a planning scheme map, land that
is within 100m of an area of bushfire-prone vegetation equal to
or greater than 1ha.

Bushfire Prone vegetation is defined as:

bushfire-prone means contiguous vegetation including grasses and shrubs but not
vegetation including maintained lawns, parks and gardens, nature strips, plant
nurseries, golf courses, vineyards, orchards or vegetation on land that is
used for horticultural purposes.

pitt&sherry ref: Bushfire Report/IA/dr 2


Is the subject site within a bushfire prone area? To determine this a 100m radius circle can be applied
to the site – see below:

Figure 4 – assessment of possible bushfire prone vegetation

In this instance the possible bushfire prone area is to the north of the site, and can be classed as
grassland.

The site is basically flat.

The site is zoned General Residential Use under the Launceston Interim Planning Scheme 2015.

Figure 5 – zoning of site and surrounding area

Land to the NE, SW and SE of the site is subdivided and those lots which have been developed are used
for single dwellings. Land to the NW has been approved for subdivision and works have commenced
on construction of the infrastructure.

In assessing the risk from bushfire a profile of the site relative to access, water, slope, land use and
vegetation type has to be developed. The question is, will the adjoining land be developed by the time
the proposed subdivision which is the subject of this report is developed? If it is – or if the staging of
the subject site fits with the development of the adjoining land then the proposed site can be classed
as exempt under the bushfire code.

pitt&sherry ref: Bushfire Report/IA/dr 3


The reality is the land to the NW is bushfire prone and there is no certainty that it will be developed
before the subject land – thus a full assessment of each lot is required. In terms of Planning, many of
the proposed lots will be outside of the range of bushfire prone vegetation; others will be BAL 12.5
and only three lots (Lot 10, 11 and 12) will require a hazard management area and only then on the
NW boundary.

The table below provides a BAL rating (or exemption) for each lot and sets a hazard management area
(if required).

Lot BAL Rating (or exemption) Hazard Management Area (if required(

15 BAL12.5
16 BAL12.5

101 N/a Road

A road constructed to Council standards will comply with bushfire regulation. Water via hydrants giving
less than 100m hose lay will comply with bushfire regulation.

Yours sincerely
