I would say "on" Farrer Road, but I'm not familiar with the British way of saying this.

Do you ask the same questions over and over and over again until you get an answer that pleases you?


Somewhat ironically:

@Miss L Toad,
Heaven forfend Miss Toad, was that sardonic outburst a peremptory, pejorative prerogative?

One would be inclined to say 'The Rolls carked it on Farrer Road' certainly not 'at Farrer Road' although one might admit 'in Farrer Road'.
