Just yesterday I was working on this area (see attachment) of terraced 
housing. Rosamond Road creates a schism in the N-S roads. Dudley Street 
continues both north and south of Rosamond Road, however to traverse Dudley 
Street you have to travel along a small section of Rosamond Road. Which of 
course is not part of Dudley Street.

Though I would argue that Dudley Street is still one 'way'.
