That's why I asked for a sample of what Jorge was talking about.

We have a similar system for numbering rural addresses eg
https://www.google.com/maps/@-28.1554393,153.313766,3a,18.8y,127.92h,70.97t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sir8KWhNY9fZpBY-ooY_u8g!2e0!7i13312!8i6656,
567
Austinville Rd is 5670 m's from the start of the road, &, because it's an
odd number, is on the left side.

I just list them as addr:housenumber

Thanks

Graeme
