Online road naming system

The NSW Online Road Naming System was developed by Land and Property Information (LPI) in collaboration with the Local Government Address Working Group to streamline the road naming process. The system is designed for use by road naming authorities in New South Wales (NSW), particularly local government.

The system is an efficient tool for proposing road names in NSW. It supports the application of the road naming processes in a collaborative environment accessed by local government, LPI and the Geographical Names Board (GNB). The system replaces a time consuming manual process where naming authorities would apply for a road name using postal services.

The first stage of the NSW Online Road Naming System was released to local government in August 2013 which supported the proposal and adoption of road names. The current release of the system includes the automation of the road name gazettal process.

The primary objective is to continuously improve the efficiency and precision of road naming while supporting the requirements of the NSW Address policies and guidelines.
