Tackling accessibility barriers one by one

Two median crossings on Bridge St between Nott and Station St have been modified to make them accessible.

A crossing with a kerb (such as this crossing had) can make something as basic as crossing from one side of the street to another in a wheelchair impossible and deny opportunities that may be as close as the other side of the road.

These are some of the other crossing points that have been corrected:

  • Centre Avenue and Dunstan Parade

  • Bay and Bridge Streets

  • Bay and Liardet Streets

A further two crossings where there are no accessible crossovers have been identified for attention:

  • Bridge St and McCormack St

  • Rouse St and Post Office Place
