It sounds like he made it to see which roads needed surveying to
acquire their name, however I'm still confused why people use
noname=yes when the street does have a name but not a street sign, as
I posted before there is actually a few streets near here on the golf
course which really aren't named, the buildings a just unit numbers.

Anything without a street sign should be reported to someone in local
government, they may not be aware that their sign has been
damaged/destroyed, and to ask them for the name, there is 2 streets
with vandalised signs I keep meaning to annoy council about here.
