Gipps Street Ramp
Six years in the making, and involving extensive collaboration between Hansen’s landscape architecture and planning teams as well as Yarra City Council, Parks Victoria and Melbourne Water, the project will deliver a much needed upgrade to better connect the existing Main Yarra Trail to Gipps Street via a contiguous trail. A new ramp has been designed by the Hansen Landscape team to integrate into the vegetated riverine surrounds, the new staircase and ramp will provide universal access for all trail users, streetscape improvements to Gipps Street, and facilitate rehabilitation of the river embankment. A planning permit application is currently being assessed by Yarra City Council. We look forward to hearing the community’s views and finding a net community benefit outcome.
