Generally abbreviations on labels wouldn't have a full stop after
them, so just "Rd" rather than "Rd.".
In addition: Lane->La, Court->Ct, Close->Ct are both quite common.
At the cartography day we noticed that Google have started some really
horrible auto-abbreviations on their mapping, regardless of the length
of the street. I now live on "9 Acres Close", according to Google,
which I guess means my address begins "5 9 Acres Close". Yuck.
