Finally some energy into the last phase of the Wayfinder scheme. 20 new posts, mainly in the western part of the city centre are currently being installed so hopefully the full scheme will be completed in the next week or so. The teams are even retro-fixing some units where the signage didnt quite point in the right direction
This morning sees the unveiling of the map panels...at least the map panel at the top of Grafton Street. See http://www.dublincity.ie/Press/PressRel ... reets.aspx
The panel will look great I'm sure. They seem to be a panel and a signage post combined. Other locations for these units include O'Connell Street (3), the rail stations and College Green.
All in all taking in the dublinbikes and the on street advertising the public realm has received a real boost from this unified scheme. Apart from the point about distance/walking time not being shown on signs, the design of the whole suit of street furniture is first class.
Alas the need to update the signage regularly can already be seen with the many "Lighthouse Cinema" signs...perhaps Smithfield would have sufficed. And the Docklands scheme, once the standard to be met, now looks increasingly ragged. Some signs are broken to missing and no one has yet thought to update the map panels and units to show the Dublin Convention Centre! Surely most obvious?
