New signs help people find their way
29 November 2011
NEW signs have being installed in Midland to help people find their way around.
The initiative is a joint project of the City of Swan and the Midland Redevelopment Authority.
Seven map panels have been installed throughout Midland's CBD, including at the Midland Train Station, in Midland Square and near Midland Gate.
City Mayor, Charlie Zannino, said "These will be in conjunction with directional signage that has useful information for people navigating through the City, such as how long it would take to walk to key features of Midland, including the bus interchange and train station, City of Swan Administration Building, the Town centre and local shopping centres."
"The signage will help to make Midland more walker-friendly, which in turn has many benefits such a reduced demand for car parking, lower greenhouse gas emissions, minimises traffic problems and improves the health of the community."
MRA Chairman, Fred Affleck, said the signs would have wide appeal.
"Have you ever arrived somewhere for the first time and not known where to go?" he said.
"That has been the Midland experience for many.
"This clever signage will help locals and visitors alike.
"Midland deserves the best, and that is what we have with these signs by leading designer Bruce Herbes."
