Burwood Council Wayfinding

Burwood and surrounding suburbs now have helpful guides and wayfinding to assist pedestrians find their destinations with ease.

Burwood Council commissioned Blue Sky to study pedestrian traffic in its parks and streets in the vicinity of transport hubs. The results are a new signage and wayfinding system that gives practical navigation information to the citizens of Burwood and surrounding areas. Good way finding, apart from convenience, has other side benefits including reduction in crime and improved safety, which was one of the primary objectives for this project.
