New signposts could cost £200,000 !

Signpost in York

Further to yesterdays story, we are told that the new signposts, planned for the City centre, could cost £200,000.

The plan has been disguised in the Councils published budget as a “wayfinding” project.

Pedestrian signs are less important these days as more and more visitors rely on mobile phone “apps” to find their way around the City.

Liberal Democrat Councillor Keith Aspden comments;

“With frontline services being cut and council tax going up residents will be shocked that Labour is choosing to spend £200,000 on a report into signposts in the city-centre.

The lessons from Lendal Bridge and Kings Square are clearly not being learnt.

Labour need to cut the vanity projects and focus spending on things that actually matter to local residents.”
