Mt Albert Rd is named after the maunga and the suburb.
At one time part of Carrington Rd to the Mt Albert shops was known as Mt Albert Rd West, while the present day Mt Albert Rd was known as Mt Albert Rd East.
Part was known as Three Kings Rd. Further investigation is needed to identify where this boundary was.
This was also known as the Onehunga-Mt Albert Rd.
Mt Albert Rd runs south east from New North Rd to the Royal Oak roundabout (intersection with Manukau Rd, Campbell Rd and Mt Smart Rd).
