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?

Auburn

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

Why does this New Street East path in Balgowlah suddenly change its mind? Why does it then give up altogether?


Balmain

You won’t find it in street directories. In fact, you’ll be lucky to find it at all. But this narrow path stretches for 200 metres into the background to link Balmain’s Beattie Street with Little Beattie, Theodore, Little Theodore and Llewellyn Streets. They comprise one magic kingdom.
