Sign of the historic times for Hawkesbury

Visitors to Richmond will now have an easier time navigating the historic town centre with the installation of new wayfinding and suburb signage by Hawkesbury City Council this week.

The 16 new signs include suburb signage for Richmond and directional signage in South Windsor.

The wayfinding signage is totem-style and includes navigation and local information, with the signs designed to be sympathetic to the heritage of the region, the Council said.

Hawkesbury City Mayor, Sarah McMahon says the new signs will help visitors and locals navigate local towns and destinations.

“The Hawkesbury has always been a popular destination for daytrippers and weekenders, with our outstanding natural beauty, historic towns and landmarks, shopping, dining, farmers gates and our region’s wildly successful events program,” Mayor McMahon said.

“These signs will not only help visitors find their way around the Hawkesbury – they will be a welcoming and visually-pleasing addition to our towns.

“The new signs in Richmond look amazing and I can’ wait to see more signs rolled out across the Hawkesbury in the coming months.”

The signs were developed as part of a $3.44 million Hawkesbury Wayfinding and Signage Project, which was presented to the community for feedback in 2022.

$2.35 million in funding was provided by the NSW Government as part of the Western Sydney Infrastructure Grants program.

The Council will also install 26 entry gateway signs and a range of additional signs in 11 locations including Bilpin, Bligh Park, Clarendon, Colo, Glossodia, Kurmond, Kurrajong, North Richmond, Pitt Town, St Albans, Wilberforce and Windsor.
