New style pedestrian signs and mapping for Hampshire towns and cities
Updated 11 September 2015
The new style of "wayfinding" pedestrian signs and mapping were introduced in Hampshire's main cities and towns between 2013 and 2015.
There are two styles of sign:
- totem maps (the two signs on the left in the picture)
- fingerpost signs (the sign furthest to the right in the picture)
The signs are located at arrival points such as rail and bus stations and car parks, and at major pedestrian junctions in city and town centres.
The signs show:
- destinations for residents, visitors and workers
- places and destinations in relation to one another, helping visitors to have better "mental maps" of the area
- estimated walk times to help encourage walking as the best way of getting around
- accessible routes, steps, ramps and gradients
