Frederic Street Road changes its name

23 Jul, 2020

Frederic Street Road will now be known as Frederic Road after Wodonga Council's July meeting.

Frederic Street Road is a rural country road, located south of Baranduda Boulevard in Leneva. It was formally a part of Streets Rd until 2005. It has been named after one of Leneva’s Pioneer families – Frederic Street.

Frederic Street was born in Hampshire, England in 1807 andmarried Sarah Kinchington in England in 1836. They migrated to Australia in 1838 and managed 145,000 acres of Baranduda Station from 1852 until 1880s. It was one of the main meat suppliers to the surrounding goldfields population. 

The council's Place Names Committee received a request from residents on Frederic Street Rd to rename the road.

The PNC discussed the request and decided to recommend the renaming of Frederic Street Rd to Frederic Rd.

The motion to change the name to Frederic Road was carried unanimously.
