Better signage for pedestrians and cyclists in Launceston

The City of Launceston has rolled out over 200 wayfinding signs across the city as part of the $19.4 million City Heart Project, which aims to make central Launceston the business, retail and lifestyle hub of Northern Tasmania.  

Wayfinding signage assists pedestrians and cyclists to navigate from place to place, by providing directional and location information.

The project sought to contemporise and standardise wayfinding signage across Launceston with a range of different styles having been in place around the city for decades.

The City Heart initiative is funded by all three levels of government under the Launceston City Deal, with the Australian Government contributing $7.5 million, the Tasmanian Government contributing $5.8 million, and local government contributing $6.1 million.
