There’s no indication that Wellington North Council will be changing any duplicate road names.

Councillors learned this week that – as an example – there are seven different roads in Wellington North contain the number 6, including County Road 6, Concession 6, Line 6 and 6th Line.

The discussion comes at a time when Wellington County is preparing to issue new green fire number signs across the county, which includes the number as well as the road name.

Wellington North Fire Service said that in the last five years, it’s only had three issues of confusing road names out of the 2,000 calls received.
