I recently found out that Gribble Street in Gungahlin is about to have its name changed to Efkarpidis Street. (Gribble was an early pioneer in Gungahlin prior to the establishment of Canberra.)
It made me wonder why a change was necessary, when Gribble Street has been formed and named for about five years already. Why rename a street instead of naming another unnamed street? What did Gribble do – or not do – to warrant having his street taken away?
A development application is currently in with ACTPLA for a club – a poker machine club I presume – on the blocks of land where Gribble Street, Kate Crace Street and The Valley Avenue intersect in Gungahlin.
