Suburb and road names should not be shortened unless it's part of a standard Waze text to speech abbreviation. Otherwise, road names and destinations will sound incorrect when they are read out aloud.
==Junctions between two numbered routes==
To aid long distance navigation, major roads with a route number should have an alternative name of just that route number. In addition, where two numbered routes meet at a junction, the segments at the junction should also be given an additional alternative name containing the route number of the route they are intersecting to. If the numbered routes meet at a roundabout, then this applies to the segments connected to the roundabout, ''not'' the roundabout itself.
For example, where B23 - Monaro Hwy meets B72 - Snowy Mountains Hwy in Cooma, the segment of B23 - Monaro Hwy has all of these alternative names:
* B23 (no city)
* Monaro Hwy, Cooma
* B72 (no city)
This isn't required if there is a Ramp segment between the two numbered routes; in that case the route numbers are added to the Ramp segment as described earlier.
