Geographic coordinate system Coordinate system

A geographic coordinate system is a coordinate system that enables every location on Earth to be specified by a set of numbers, letters or symbols. The coordinates are often chosen such that one of the numbers represents a vertical position and two or three of the numbers represent a horizontal position; alternatively, a geographic position may be expressed in a combined three-dimensional Cartesian vector. A common choice of coordinates is latitude, longitude and elevation. To specify a location on a plane requires a map projection.

History

The suburb's name comes from Stake Hill ( 32°23′S115°46′E / 32.383°S 115.767°E / -32.383; 115.767 ), a hill which is about 15 km north of the suburb. Stakehill Road runs around the north side of Stake Hill (the hill) in the Baldivis area but doesn't run south to Stake Hill, the suburb. The area was unpopulated until the 1960s, and settlement in two rural subdivisions took place in the 1990s. 2009 saw Stake Hill become much more accessible with the extension of the Kwinana Freeway towards Mandurah.

The Kwinana Freeway is a 72-kilometre (45 mi) freeway in and beyond the southern suburbs of Perth, Western Australia, linking central Perth with Mandurah to the south. It is the central section of State Route 2, which continues north as Mitchell Freeway to Clarkson, and south as Forrest Highway towards Bunbury. A 4-kilometre (2.5 mi) section between Canning and Leach highways is also part of National Route 1. Along its route are interchanges with several major roads, including Roe Highway and Mandjoogoordap Drive. The northern terminus of the Kwinana Freeway is at the Narrows Bridge, which crosses the Swan River, and the southern terminus is at Pinjarra Road, east of Mandurah.

Geography

Stake Hill is bounded by the City of Rockingham border to the north, Mandurah Road to the west, Lakes and Lakelands Roads to the south and Gull Road to the east.

Transport

Stake Hill is not served by public transport, but is directly connected to the Kwinana Freeway via the Lymon Road interchange, and with the new highway Mandjoogoordap Drive now completed, it is now only a short 10-minute drive from this interchange directly into the City of Mandurah. Mandjoogoordap Drive also provides a quick and easy route directly to the train and bus station.

Mandjoogoordap Drive, meaning "meeting place of the heart" in the indigenous Noongar language, is a dual carriageway road which links the Western Australian city of Mandurah to the Kwinana Freeway. It was officially opened on 7 October 2010. The road was known as Mandurah Entrance Road during its construction and is usually referred to as the Mandurah Link.
