Tactile signs make Sydney more accessible to all

A network of tactile street signs is being rolled out across every signalised pedestrian crossing throughout the City of Sydney, making it safer and easier for people of all abilities to navigate our streets.

More than 2,100 braille and raised letter signs are being installed following extensive community consultation and on-site testing with the Guide Dogs NSW/ACT and Vision Australia.

Once completed, the tactile sign network will be the most comprehensive in Australia.
