Transport for London Awards ‘Legible London’ Pedestrian Wayfinding Signage Contract to Trueform
TFL’s ‘Legible London’ wayfinding projet aims to provide better information throughout the Capital for people who want to walk. A study conducted two years ago drew attention to the ineffectiveness of the present multitude of pedestrian sign systems in Central London, and the consequent over-reliance on the tube map to help navigate above ground.
Trueform will commence the manufacture and installation of these innovative street furniture products early 2009.
Legible London will use a range of information, including street furniture products early 2009.
Legible London will use a range of information, including street signs and maps to provide a comprehensive wayfinding system that helps both residents and visitors alike.
Features of the new wayfinding signage system includes modulisation, robustness, lighting and solar power options, methods of displaying the mapping information and compatability with potential new communications technology. Each sign has a unique commentary of the surrounding area with useful travel information and a description of the geography of nearby areas.
