Dunfermline pedestrian signage
Published by : Fife Council
This consultation is open.
Purpose of consultation
Fife Council is set to make improvements to pedestrian signage in Dunfermline town centre. We would like your views on the approach we are proposing and this will help to shape the final designs.
‘Wayfinding’ is the term used to describe an area’s collection of signs, maps and other route identifying features. They give people information about the location and indicate directions to attractions. Good wayfinding will let you know where you are, highlight a selection of key destinations and where these are in relations to your current location.
The town centre’s existing wayfinding needs to be improved. We want to correct outdated information and replace signs that are difficult to read.
To help pedestrians navigate their way around the town centre we will provide wayfinding information at Dunfermline’s main arrival and transport points, key destinations and at important route ‘decision points’ for pedestrians. These will make journeys easier for everyone and be adaptable to changing circumstances and town centre developments.
Dunfermline town centre attracts lots of visitor. It is a cultural and shopping destination for tourists and locals alike. This work will help to improve the quality of the visitor experience, making it easier for people to navigate through Dunfermline’s streetscape. The signage will be high quality, durable, consistent in style and complement the surrounding streets.
This project is funded by Fife Council, Transport Scotland’s ‘Smarter Choices, Smarter Places’ fund and Scotrail’s Transport Integration Fund.
