Access to the Main Yarra Trail for all

If you have ever lugged your bike or a pram up the Gipps Street steps in Abbotsford relief is on its way.

Parks Victoria is planning an all ability access ramp to replace the Gipps Street steps and give better access for everyone to enjoy the Main Yarra Trail.

Ramp concept design (1mb, PDF)

The existing 42 concrete steps stop people with prams, those using wheelchairs and all but the fittest of cyclists, who can carry their bikes up the steps, from using this section of the Main Yarra Trail.

Following the four-week public consultation period which ended on Friday 4 August, Parks Victoria will finalise its plan in response to the community feedback and then continue with the important infrastructure upgrade project.

If you would like to be kept informed about this project please email gippsstramp@parks.vic.gov.au or phone 13 1963.
