Answered By: 
The Mayor

Legible London is a data-led signage system that presents information in a range of ways, including maps and directional information, to help people find their way. The signs are located at key wayfinding decision points, showing all aspects of the surrounding street environment and are not based on prescribed routes.

The Legible London system follows inclusive design guidance ranging from colour contrast, typography, information content and positioning. Steps, pavement widths and pedestrian streets are shown on the maps to help people make decisions about the most suitable route. Pedestrian crossings, showing safe places to cross a road, are also visible on the map for all walking distances within close proximity (up to 5mins).
