Renaming of unnamed bridges and roads

Council would like to formally identify names for 15 unnamed roads and 23 unnamed bridges within the Local Government Area. These bridges and roads are identified in the documents below.

Road naming is a component of an address that forms the identification of a property. Clarity in identification is imperative for residents for emergency services, service delivery, mail identification and connection and supply of utility services. A bridge name does not form part of a property address however naming provides clear locational identification for emergency and disaster response with a benefit to first responders, the public and the overall community.

Council is seeking requests for name submissions which include the proposed name and the significance or history relevant to the proposed name relevant to the road or bridge.

Road and Bridge name suggestions will need to be in accordance with Council’s Naming of Roads and Bridges Policy.

Council will review any submissions and ensure the proposed names are endorsed by the NSW Geographical Names Board of NSW. Any identified proposed names will be presented to the community for consideration prior to adoption.

Post to – Locked Bag 10, Casino NSW 2470
Email –
Hand delivery – at either Council’s Customer Service Centres in Casino and Evans Head
