New York city is set to revolutionise its system of street, road and warning signs in a bid to improve walkability and economic vitality for residents and visitors.

The city's Department of Transportation (DOT) wants to make it easier for people to navigate around the various neighbourhoods, starting with wayfinding improvements.

Long Island City in Queens, Prospect and Crown Heights in Brooklyn, and Chinatown in Manhattan will be the first to benefit from the new clear and readable signs for pedestrians.

DOT commissioner Sadik-Khan suggested that improved signage will be key to uniting these locations and opening them up in "new and exciting ways".

He added: "An information system that points the way to key destinations knits together neighborhoods and makes local businesses even more accessible to all New Yorkers."

The news comes after the DOT sought to improve road safety by filling in 400,000 potholes across the city.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800627475-ADNFCR
