They say that the number should be appended to the road name like William Nicol Dr (R511).
I think it is a bad idea as if one day Nigeria get road shields it will cause problems.
And the problem of number vs road name is the same for all countries I think.
The road name is known by local users, and the number is used by travelling users.
When a road starts with "NX - some name" when you are driving long distance you can just follow the road number and understand that it is the same road.
If it is in the end it is impossible to follow a road.
Hi kpouer, I totally agree with you. As I said before:
With numbered road we can use the convention you propose, it can also be useful if and when Waze will introduce shields in Nigeria.
I proposed the South Africa wiki only becouse it's the only African Country with a wiki page but I never drove in Nigeria so I'm not sure if it's a good or a bad idea. Waiting for a feedback from Isah.
