Naming Far North Collector Road Competition
Tell us your suggested name for Far North Collector Road and the reason behind your submission.
The Far North Collector Road network includes the 1.8 km road that connects Illaroo Road in North Nowra to Moss Vale Road in Cambewarra. This major road is part of an exciting infrastructure project that connects communities and provides a long over-due second access to North Nowra. With the project due for completion in late 2023, Council needs the Shoalhaven community’s help to contribute a meaningful name for this major road.
What you need to do
When choosing a name, please consider a relationship to the local area e.g. flora and fauna, Aboriginal, and historical significance is desired, but not obligatory.
Please also, read Council's Road and Place Names Guidelines if you want your suggestion to count.
The new names will be announced by the end of the year. The winner gets bragging rights and will be involved in a special commemoration.
Please send your entry through by completing the Online Submission Form by 5pm Sunday, 16 October 2022.
The naming process
A shortlist of five entries will be created with the winning name determined by the Mayor and the Councillors.
The final submission will be sent to the Geographical Names Board - the final determining body for the naming of roads.
Keep an eye on our future roads. All submissions have the potential to be added to Council’s ‘New Road Name Bank’. The bank is a list of names planners refer to when choosing new roads in the Shoalhaven. Who knows, maybe one day you’ll see your suggestion on a street sign!
Thanks for getting involved and good luck helping to name this new road.
