The Gipps Street ramp is a proposal to replace the notorious set of steps on the Main Yarra Trail at Gipps Street.
Long standing campaign
Yarra Bicycle User Group have been campaigning for the steps to be replaced since at least 2005. Learn more on their website.
In 2017, Parks Victoria announced a project to replace the steps with a ramp.
In 2020, Parks Victoria announced that they have developed a “functional design” of a ramp to replace the Gipps Street steps, and are now requesting tenders for engineering design services. Here are some images of the proposal – all image credits are Parks Victoria and Hansen Partnership. More images are available here.
