Links to some articles but not others[edit]

I notice that the list of roads sometimes has links to the articles and sometimes not. Eg in the Leach Highway article if I show "Road routes in Western Australia" at the bottom, Kwinana Fwy is a link, but Stock Road is not - even though an article exists (Stock Road, Perth), and is linked from List of road routes in Western Australia. Admittedly, I only just created the Stock Rd article, but it's not clear to me how to fix the problem - {{tl|WA road routes)) is too complicated for me to edit. But it would be nice if all of the roads in the list (that had articles) were clickable links. Mitch Ames (talk) 07:48, 8 June 2013 (UTC)

The part that needs to be edited is Template:WA road routes/R (which is also used in List of road routes in Western Australia). Roads currently without articles are listed as plain text instead of red links per Wikipedia:Navboxes#Navigation_templates_provide_navigation_between_existing_articles. - Evad37 (talk) 08:24, 8 June 2013 (UTC)
OK, thanks (and also for this). Mitch Ames (talk) 08:57, 8 June 2013 (UTC)
