New signs to guide visitors

16 Sep 2013

New signs to guide visitors Image

The City of Melbourne (CoM) is in the process of erecting new information and mapping signs along South Wharf, helping to guide visitors around the burgeoning precinct.

A council spokesperson said the signs were designed to help local businesses.

“CoM is committed to investing in the visitor experience and to ensuring the visitor economy benefits local businesses, attractions and precincts,” the spokesperson said.

“The new maps will initially be installed in a number of the signs along the pedestrian routes that connect Southern Cross Station and the city with South Wharf, MCEC and WTC Wharf.”

The Yarra River Business Association (YRBA) has long agitated for more directional signage all over the precinct. Executive officer Tim Bracher said this was a step in the right direction.

“YRBA has been lobbying for more than a decade to get the City of Melbourne to be more responsive to signing needs in the precinct, especially the use of signs that can be easily updated when details change,” Mr Bracher said.

“The city is now actively engaging with the business community on the provision of signage and we congratulate the council on this latest initiative on South and North Wharves.”
