Bond Street area prototype
The Legible London prototype was installed in the Bond Street area in November 2007. It involved 19 on-street signs, as well as co-ordinated maps at bus stops and Tube stations to help people continue their journey on foot.
Forty other pieces of street furniture were removed from the area to reduce street clutter - a key principle of Legible London.
Comprehensive evaluations of the prototype showed the scheme was very popular and average pedestrian journey times in the area fell by 16 per cent.
As a result, the prototype was extended in the Oxford Street, Regent Street and Bond Street areas, with a further 55 signs.
The lessons learnt from the prototype also helped to inform and shape the pilots.
The prototype and extension have been delivered in partnership with:
