Case Study: Cyclists find their way
Groundwork has begun for wayfinding signage on cycle networks for all regions that have a Principal Cycle Network Plan. The work done so far to prepare focal point maps and prepare wayfinding guidance, will enable both TMR and local councils to implement consistent and logical signage to help encourage more cycling, more often. This initiative aims to boost people cycling on the network by:
- providing focal point maps identifying key destinations and decision points to help cyclists navigate the network
- giving commuters and tourists access to safe and attractive cycle routes to reach critical destinations and attractions
- encouraging local governments to install signage on their bicycle networks
- supporting users of the network to find their way around and make full use of the cycling infrastructure.
Under the Cycle Network Local Government Grants Program, Ipswich City Council received $50,000 of matched funding from TMR in 2017–18 to install wayfinding signage in gaps identified on the principal cycle network route, from the Ipswich Motorway to the Ipswich CBD, to increase usage of existing cycle facilities.
