Kochi Ithile way finding signage project was created based on Reimagining Fort Kochi
Proposal and and Transport Strategy document by SMART-SUT for West Kochi Island with
partners including Kochi Municipal Corporation, Centre for Heritage, Environment and
Development (C-HED), and GIZ India , through the Transformative Urban Mobility Initiative
(TUMI), funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development
The Way finding signages developed through a consultative process aims to provide
localized information both for locals as well as tourists. This information can be beyond the
architectural and heritage landmarks and can also address the local landmarks, public
spaces, activity generators and other aspects which the locals and tourist associate to. This
will be developed as large panel format and will include information both in Malayalam as
well as in English (if possible, also braille and audio will be offered).
The way finding signages were inaugurated by the Hon’ble Kochi MLA Shri. K.J. Maxy presided by the Hon’ble Mayor of Kochi Municipal Corporation Adv. M. Anilkumar in presence of Standing committee chairs, Councillors, and other officials.
