No one knows a neighbourhood better than the people who live there, so I'm asking for your invaluable advice to help us create a City that's easier for visitors to get around.
You can help by using interactive online technology to drop markers onto local maps to quickly and easily suggest landmarks that should be signposted, and where best to place directional signs.
This feedback will assist with the placement of new information pylons and street signs that will be installed at key locations throughout the city and surrounding villages, making it easier for residents and visitors to navigate Sydney's streets on foot.
Walking is one of the best ways to get around Sydney but clearer and more consistent wayfinding information is critical to help everyone explore our city's great attractions.
Walking also boosts the health and wellbeing of people living and working in Sydney, helps tackle congestion and supports local businesses.
The information pylons and directional signs are part of the City's Legible Sydney Wayfinding System that also includes a network of new braille and tactile street signs to be installed at all signalised pedestrian crossings throughout the City.
The pylons feature a pedestrian-friendly map, showing libraries, schools and community centres, while the street signs point the way to local amenities. Community feedback will also help determine any additional information that should be included and where the signs should be placed.
Ways to have you say:
- Pin a main destination: Destinations relevant beyond village boundaries for visitors and locals. For example: Sydney Opera House, Town Hall, Hyde Park and Ian Thorpe Aquatic Centre.
- Pin a local destination: Destinations relevant mainly within village boundaries. For example: Glebe Library, Ultimo Community Centre and local schools.
- Pin a location for a proposed sign: Locations where you would like to see signage telling you the distance and directions to places.
- Pin a comment: General comments and suggestions.
The proposed wayfinding location plans will be on public exhibition from 10 August to 1 September. People can go online to view the designs, give feedback and make suggestions at: http://sydneyyoursay.com.au/wayfinding-signage-proposal
