A project in cooperation with the Penang State Government, Penang Municipal Authorities and Think City Sdn. Bhd., the Way Finding System is a programme to improve and unify the signage of sites of importance within the World Heritage Site.
The first phase of the project has been launched, and encompasses the Street of Harmony area, from the High Court leading down Masjid Kapitan Keling Road to the Acheen Street Malay Mosque. It features new directional signboards, plaques and maps to help situate visitors, as well as downloadable pdf files on each of the 10 primary sites within this zone.
The Way Finding project involved community participation in the development of information about their respective sites, working with professional designers and writers to produce the final results.
The second phase will cover the Little India area, between Masjid Kapitan Kling, Chula Street, Beach Street and Church Street.
