Upgrade to Reserve Street, between Miriam Road and West Parade, West Ryde

Consultation closed on 11 December 2018

The City of Ryde is proposing to upgrade Reserve Street between Miriam Road and West Parade. Council is seeking your feedback on this proposal to upgrade stormwater drainage, road pavement, formalise parking next to Miriam Park and better accessibility for pedestrians.  

What will the upgrade involve?

Council is proposing two (2) options for the upgrade:

Option 1:
  • Formalising the existing car park on Reserve Street, along Miriam Park, to accommodate up to 65 parking spaces
  • Construction of a new footpath on the northern-side of Reserve Street between No. 35 Reserve Street and West Parade
  • Construction of new kerb and gutter on the eastern-side of Reserve Street
    And
  • Narrowing the nature strip on the eastern-side to widen the road pavement enough to allow for on-street parallel parking on the eastern-side of Reserve Street
Option 2:
  • Formalising the existing car park on Reserve Street, along Miriam Park, to accommodate up to 65 parking spaces
  • Construction of a new footpath on the northern side of Reserve Street, between No. 35 Reserve Street and West Parade
  • Construction of new kerb and gutter on the eastern-side of Reserve Street
    And
  • This option will not allow for on-street parallel parking on the eastern-side of the street

In an effort to preserve several significant trees along the existing road corridor between No. 35 Reserve Street and West Parade, all roadworks and upgrades will be limited to the section between Miriam Road and No. 35 Reserve Street, with the exception of a new footpath.

What about the significance of miriam park, isn't it heritage listed?

Whilst there have been previous nominations to heritage list Miriam Park for its ecological and historical values, Miriam park is not currently listed as a heritage item and there are no significant trees that will be affected by these works. Therefore, the formalisation of parking next to the park is permissible.

Council Resolution 23 March 2021

Published on 29 March 2021

At the Council meeting held on Tuesday 23 March 2021, it was resolved that Council:

(a) Note its legal obligation as the delegated roads authority to repair, maintain and inspect the road.
(b) Notify the impacted residents along Reserve Street of Council’s legal obligations to upgrade Reserve Street to meet the relevant Australian Standards and legislations, where doing nothing is not an option.
(c) Finalise the scope of works and construct the road safety upgrade of Reserve Street known as ‘Option 3’ as part of Council’s 2021/22 Road Kerb Renewal Program.

What is 'Option 3'?

Option 3 maintains the existing character of the road between West Parade and house #31A Reserve Street (minor local widening to asphalt fronting #31A to #35), whilst upgrading the road between house #31A and Miriam Road. Upgrading the road includes: Provision of kerb and gutter on both sides of the road (with a reduced height of kerb and gutter on the residents side), formalising the existing car parking arrangement, by providing up to thirty-two (32) 90 degree spaces and eliminating all parallel parking on the residents side. Appropriate street signage to enforce this arrangement will also be installed. A designated area has been nominated along Reserve Street adjacent to Miriam Park that will provide a highly vegetated area designed by a suitably qualified landscape architect.
