Hillcrest Street and Intermediate Street

Short Street was divided into three when the reconstruction of the York Street/Short Street corner took place. Hillcrest Street was for the geographical feature that dominates the contour of the street, and Intermediate Street took its name from the Masterton Intermediate School, sited in the street. These names were given after a competition held among the pupils of the school during the 1970s.
