Ferris Street

In conjunction with the redevelopment of Charlestown Square Shopping Centre, Council named this new road Ferris Street and renamed a section of Lincoln Street with the name Ferris Street in September 2008.

Named after the sporting field over which the road has been constructed, the developer was GPT Group. Ferris Oval was closed by the redevelopment and was named after Jim Ferris for his work in the sporting field and his community work. He was a member of the Charlestown Urban Committee.
