and this is the very nice reply from Cabonne Shire
The reason you do not see any road name signs for this road is because it has
not yet been formally named. The RTA proposed to rename this road (from Cudal
to Cowra) as Wiradjuri Way/Hwy several years ago, but that proposal seems to
have ground to a halt. If I recall correctly both Cowra and Cabonne Councils
agreed to this in principal but the matter did not proceed, probably due to
some staff changes within the RTA.
For our purposes we refer to it as Canowindra Road and that is the name that
has been used for rural addressing purposes.
