The new signs, designed and produced by Allen Signs, are based on research that found roundel designs are easy to read

Lincolnshire sign-maker Allen Signs has completed a project for Lincoln's bus station as part of a refurbishment. Allen Signs's redesign of existing signs was based on the London Tube's logo, printed digitally on 3mm white Dibond panels.

"We conducted a survey of the site and put a proposal together based on the London Underground signage," explains Allen Signs account manager Kevin Brocklesby.

"The London Underground logo or 'roundel' is one of the most recognised British icons and the City of Lincoln Council had identified this as an example of design excellence and requested a similar style.

"The project consisted of 18 different sign combinations including the departure board and multiple bay signs at each stand. To minimise disruption to services we removed the old signage and replaced it with the new red, white and black panels within 48 hours."

The bus station redevelopment aimed to improve the safety of passengers after a review by the City of Lincoln Council and bus company Stagecoach.
