New Ramp Removes Barrier for Main Yarra Trail


Melbourne, Victoria

Melbourne’s famous Main Yarra Trail will be more accessible and bike-friendly thanks to a new ramp announced by the Victorian Government.

Construction will soon begin on the 150-metre-long ramp, replacing steps on the Gipps Street Abbotsford connection to the Main Yarra Trail.

The Main Yarra Trail is one of Melbourne’s most iconic trails, following the Birrarung-Yarra River from the north-eastern suburbs to the city.

A statement from the government says the existing steep steps at the Gipps Street connection are a major obstacle to cyclists, pram users and people with limited mobility.

“The elevated ramp will dramatically improve how people can use the trail, cross the river and enjoy nature right on the city’s edge,” the statement says.
“Melbourne’s Metropolitan Trail Network, which includes the Merri Creek Trail, the Moonee Ponds Creek Trail, the Inner Circle Trail, and the Main Yarra Trail, contributes to a unique transport network along Melbourne’s Yarra River corridor for cyclists and pedestrians.”
The shared pathway at Gipps Street also makes up part of the 29-kilometre Capital City Trail around Melbourne’s inner north.
