Arrow Alpha signage - helping lead the way
The City of Melton has recently rolled out 87 Arrow Alpha shared path wayfinding signs that are leading the way for cyclists, walkers and visitors. The signs contain maps highlighting the shared path networks, landmarks, destinations, walking and cycling routes, playgrounds, BBQ areas, services and amenities
The roll out of the signs coincided with the launch of the Avenza PDF Maps App. The app gives the user access to free digital maps showing various routes around the area. Simply download the Avenza PDF app to your iPhone, iPad or Android device and scan the QR code that is located on the wayfinding signs to load the app.
Melton City Council developed the app and installed the signs to encourage local residents to explore new areas and trails and promote a healthy lifestyle.
According to current City of Melton Mayor, Cr Kathy Majdlik, the app and wayfinding signage is part of the Council’s commitment to the health and wellbeing of the community.
“Walking and cycling around the City of Melton is very popular among our residents and something that we strongly promote,” Cr Majdlik said. “We are always looking at new ways to encourage our residents to lead an active lifestyle and these maps will make it easier for residents to explore new areas and trails that they may not have discovered otherwise.”
With more and more people walking and cycling as a mode of transport and exercise there is an added environmental benefit with a reduction in the number of cars taking to the roads.
Over time man has developed more sophisticated and intricate ways to guide others and wayfinding signage has played a vital role in the history of civilisation by bringing suburbs, towns and cities to life whilst also nurturing a sense of community.
