The street where I live is a forgotten street. It’s name is on the sale documents as my address but the electric company refuses to believe it exists and so does the taxi company. The house faces onto a different street and I always need to explain this to anyone looking for it to deliver things. There is no street name, just a sign that says “walkway”. Cars can’t travel down it, it is too narrow and blocked by a bollard and, as of this week, a fallen tree. Now it is just an overgrown lane that is still the quickest way to get to the shop.
Here is another “road to nowhere”. When we bought our house in Geeveston the plan showed a strip of land that had been put aside for a road that was never built. Part of it is a track that leads from the Huon Highway to the land behind the power sub station. In later years power company put in a fence and gate to restrict access to the high tension power lines you can see in the distance. Strange that I have now lived next to two forgotten roads.
