BioQuarter points the way

Since Monday 29 October, The University of Edinburgh's Little France campus has become officially known as Edinburgh BioQuarter.

This has been marked by the launch of a major signage and wayfinding project.

Edinburgh BioQuarter’s four public sector partners – The University of Edinburgh, The City of Edinburgh Council, NHS Lothian and Scottish Enterprise – have come together to address the varying needs of people accessing the 100 acre site by vehicle, public transport, cycle and on foot.

Over 90 new signs will span the entire site, with three eight-metre-high signposts situated along the A7 Old Dalkeith Road marking out the main entrances and exits. Car parks are being renamed and numbered and further detailed orientation boards, street signs and building signage will also be installed as part of the project.

What does this mean for you?

The new signage will greatly assist people in finding their way around the site which brings together over 7,500 people, with hundreds of thousands of patients and visitors also attending the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh each year.
