The City of Greater Geelong is proposing to rename Lonsdale Street, Geelong and sections of Carr Street, Geelong/Thomson due to the re-alignment of roadways by Rail Projects Victoria due to the South Geelong Rail Project.

All sections of roadways will require individual names to be assigned. The new names chosen for each section can be found in the corresponding tiles below.

This road renaming is being completed in accordance with the Naming Rules for Places in Victoria by linking the name to place.
