Website redevelopment project
Learn about the major improvements being made to our corporate website and what the changes mean for you.
Why is the website being changed?
We’re listening to the aviation community.
Your feedback is that you want to find information easily, be able to understand the content and know that every time you access the website it will be available.
We have run focus groups, undertaken user testing, completed surveys and analysed website analytics to ensure we are on track to meet your expectations.
Over the coming months we will be making major improvements to the website so you can:
- find information easily through the new web structure with intuitive navigation menus
- access easy to use top level web pages that guide you through the information presented
- view web pages across desktop and mobile devices in a fresh look design
- find pages and documents quickly through optimised search functionality
- experience greater accessibility and compliance with standards from the Digital Transformation Office.
When can I expect to see changes on the website?
We will be rolling out improvements to the website progressively during 2016.
We are well underway with moving over 5,000 web pages on the existing website to the new web structure.
There will be nine sections in the web structure, outlined in the diagram below:
By March, we anticipate that you will be able to access information easily through the refined navigation menus, as well as use a more responsive website across desktop, tablet and mobile displays.
What work has already been completed?
The first phase of the project involved migration of content from the old system into govCMS.
This was successfully completed on 22 July 2015, with the stability of the website improving to almost 100% up-time.
How can I stay updated on the project?
We have also released a video on our YouTube channel illustrating how the aviation community interacts with content on our website (data visualisation is based on August to November 2015 data):
