The city centre streets and spaces had a growing number of obsolete signs and
incorrect directional information. Therefore, as part of the first phase of
installation of the pedestrian signing system, incorrect signs were removed
as new information was installed.
The pedestrian signing system was designed to replace the large number of separate
sign systems that had been introduced on a piecemeal basis, with one consistent
city centre wide system. Over 120 signs have been removed in the first phase.
The project has subsequently been expanded to include a pilot project in the
Old City. During 2001/2 approximately 200 pieces of street furniture have been
removed or re sited to improve clarity in the city. The project is to continue
