Transport for London (TfL) is piloting Legible London, a system of on-street signs, maps and fingerposts designed to make it quicker and easier to walk around the Capital.

Originally trialled around Bond Street in November 2007, the system is now being piloted to further test and refine the scheme in different pedestrian environments. Atkins Intelligent Space has been appointed as Scheme Designer for the Central London areas of South Bank and Bankside, home to some of the UK's most visited tourist attractions (including the Southbank Centre, the London Eye and the Tate Modern) and Waterloo Station, one of the country's busiest transport interchanges.
