Standard Abbreviations

This is a locally derived list. The Original list is at Suffix_Abbreviations. The full set of suffixes is not used in South Africa. The Afrikaans Equivalent is generally a similar term as the Road Name. When commonly used for street names, the ZA Usage Verified column will indicate that it is in use.

  1. Road Names should not be abbreviated, only suffixes, e.g. "Circle Rd", not "Cir Rd".
  2. TTS = Text To Speech for supported countries.
  3. Not here or supported ? The "When in doubt, Spell it out" principle always apply.
