Nile Street East, Nile Street West:

Nile Street East, Nile Street West:

Named after the Battle of the Nile.

The two parts are separated by Church Hill but run from Rutherford Street along to the Cleveland Hills at the mouth of the Maitai Valley, after crossing the Brook and the Maitai twice. On early maps a continuation of the street ran up the eastern hill for some distance as a narrow right of way but now the road stops just past Mill Street. The bridge across the Brook which runs diagonally across page 11the Tasman Street intersection was the scene of a fatal accident when it was being built.
