This ties in OK with Minor Hwy for the biggest main roads (Pac Hwy, Princes Hwy, Pennant Hills Rd etc).
Primary Streets are the ones marked yellow on your UBD, or on Whereis.

DavidRa wrote:Also, and this is solely my interpretation, if joining side roads to split main roads (where there are two separate 1 way roads) the section of road that goes between the separated paths should be unnamed if it's just a big intersection, for example:
- Code: Select all
Side Road -------+-+ [Separated main road]
That small section is unnamed, there are 2 junctions (one per road) with restricted turns as appropriate. This should allow audio routing in the future without unnecessary stages.
I'm guessing the alternative would be to terminate the split road at the intersection and start it up again after the junction. Is there a good reason to prefer one of those approaches?
- Code: Select all
Side Road --------+ [Main road]

They could then make mass changes on the backend:
Note you can multi-select streets and change the suburb, so it's not impossible - just a royal pain.
- Anything within GPS co-ordinates X,X .. X,X is "NSW" and so forth (care for ACT);
- Anything with "Suburb, ST" is trimmed and the state is populated properly.
