A new signage scheme called Legible London has been unveiled in Bond Street and nearby streets which aims to make exploring the area by foot a great deal simpler. As part of the pilot, 19 displays have been erected with useful location information which should help West End shoppers this Christmas.
The signs give the reader a quick sense of their bearings and help them to locate shops, hotels, landmarks, toilets, tube stations and other amenities. They also provide an audio commentary which can be accessed via a mobile phone.
The scheme is the result of a joint commitment by the Mayor of London, TfL, Westminster City Council and New West End Company to improve conditions and signage for pedestrians in the area.
The Mayor of London, Ken Livingstone, said: "Legible London is an important part of the work that is taking place to improve conditions for pedestrians in the Capital... The Bond Street trial delivers on the pledge I made last year to improve signage in the West End before this year's Christmas shopping season."
