Roadsign Recursion on Gundaroo Drive

By johnboy - 15 September 2012 21

Monsieur Aubergine has sent in this particularly striking piece of brainlessness by our lords and masters:

This signage (photographed last weekend) is on both sides of the pedestrian underpass near Crace. Surely the signmaker would have wondered if something wasn’t quite right…?

Once they start how do they stop?

The name Gundaroo Drive is a farce. The road doesn’t even go to Gundaroo.

Yeah, not to mention Duffy Street in Ainslie, which doesn’t go anywhere near Duffy.
As for Tasmania Circle, in Forrest – I mean, come on, how silly do they think we are?

As opposed to those sort of roads which are named after the places. You can see the intention of Gundaroo Drive was to indicate that Gundaroo would be in the general direction of where the road is leading to. However, Gundaroo Drive doesn’t link up with Gundaroo Road.

I noticed some years ago that where a name is both a street and a suburb in this town, that street is rarely in (or goes to) that suburb. Still find it odd.

My favourite in brissy was Rode Road. The locals would get shitty if you pronounced it ‘road road’ instead of ‘rodey rode’….so I always did.

Melbourne has High Street Road. Maybe this is street name envy.

Although you all seem to think there is an error with this sign, it is in fact part of the ACT Govt’s commitment to upholding the recently signed UN convention on the rights of stutterers and stammerers.

You can say that again…
