Chasing up a road change in the public notices in The Advertiser today I found some opportunities for improvement for OpenStreetMap:

  *   Road name changes for council roads are notified by Public Notices and to emergency services and flow through to the data.sa.gov.au dataset, but we seem to have no process for making changes from here. My example in point is Laing Street, Pooraka which I’ve fixed after being wrong for 18 months
  *   Road name changes for state owned roads are similar, with no change tracking (I think) from data.sa.gov.au to OpenStreetMap)

Placename changes are collated at https://www.sa.gov.au/topics/planning-and-property/planning-and-land-management/suburb-road-and-place-names/place-name-proposals which I look at. The changes are about 3-4 a year so not huge, I tend to get to these.

Anyone (from SA) like to take these on the delta changes for road names?
