Plant­ing the seed on road names

Herald Sun - - NEWS -

AF­TER es­tab­lish­ing Y Rd in Ash­bur­ton is named af­ter its forked shape, now we know how K Rd in Wer­ribee South got its name.

As Steve Gib­son, of Bun­doora, and Wer­ribee river­keeper John For­rester were first to tell us, all the roads in the area were la­belled al­pha­bet­i­cally up to K in the era of mar­ket gar­den­ing.

“They fi­nally caught on with the name thing, but K Rd sur­vived,” Steve says.

So now who can tell us the long­est named roads in Mel­bourne and Vic­to­ria?
