Photos - Secrets - Streets (continued)

Artarmon

Where is the world's only eight-lane pedestrian/cycleway? See it from the Pacific Highway at Artarmon. It must be the only one, surely.


Ashcroft

Why do these marks appear alongside the gutters in so many Ashcroft streets?

The mystery has been solved by resident Ron: The grooves are the result of the evening out of the road and gutter levels after damage to car suspensions.


Auburn

It can be awkward in Auburn.

Auburn

Even more awkward is the sign just a few metres away pointing you to Kennington Oval. What would you expect to find there? Grandstands, toilet blocks, goalposts?
(Also see previous photo and next photo)


Auburn

auburn-confusing-street-names-3-xst.jpg

No, it's the name of an Auburn Street that's oval-shaped. It must be Sydney's most-misleading street name.

Austral

Which suburb has the highest number for a Sydney street name? There are 34 suburbs with a First Avenue/Street etc, but the title was fought out by Austral and West Hoxton. Austral cheated by starting their count at number four (they have no First, Second or Third).
(Also see the next five photos)


Austral

West Hoxton got back at Austral by stealing this street, which is really in Austral, not West Hoxton. By the way, how should you spell 28? Like in this photo? Or…
(Also see the previous photo and the next four photos)


Austral

… with a space between the Twenty and Eight? Or…
(Also see the previous two photos and the next three photos)


Austral

…is this more sensible?
(Also see the previous three photos and the next two photos)


Austral

austral-streets-named-numbers-5-xst.jpg

There's no street named 31st in Sydney (as you'd expect since seven months have claimed that number), but a street on the border of Austral and West Hoxton achieved top prize with 33. Street signposts in the 30s are apparently popular with souvenir hunters, so this is the highest on display.
(Also see the previous four photos and the next photo)


Austral

Can you work out what the number of this street was? We can't.
