Renaming of Roads due to Northern Connector

Submissions close at 05:00PM on Wednesday 19 December 2018

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure is currently constructing the new Northern Connector that will link the Northern Expressway to the South Road Superway. The Northern Connector has resulted in a number of roads becoming no through roads or dead end roads. The affected roads, which are in the suburb of Waterloo Corner, are:

  • Anjanto Road 
  • St Kilda Road
  • Undo Road
  • Summer Road

As a consequence, it is necessary to rename a section of these roads to avoid confusion of access to properties, particularly for emergency services access. Council is responsible for undertaking the road renaming process.

How are road names selected?

Road names are selected so as to be appropriate to the physical, historical or cultural character of the area in accordance with Council’s Naming of Roads and Public Places Policy.

The proposed new roads names are:

Anjanto Road (between Port Wakefield Road and the Northern Connector) is proposed to be renamed Davey Road. Mr Davey was a district farmer who built one of the early huts at St Kilda for fishing and recreation before the township was proclaimed in 1873. Download the MAP

St Kilda Road (between Port Wakefield Road and the Northern Connector) is proposed to be renamed Dunn Road. Mr Joseph Dunn was one of the original buyers of land when the St Kilda Township was proclaimed on 31 July 1873. Download the MAP

Undo Road (between the Northern Connector and Robinson Road) is proposed to be renamed Driver Road. Mrs V Driver was an instructor at the first swimming pool at St Kilda in January 1959. Download the MAP

Summer Road (between the Northern Connector and Robinson Road) is proposed to be renamed Robinson Road. This section of road is an orderly continuation of Robinson Road. Download the MAP
