Access Points

There are a variety of different access points on to the Railway Path. All level access controls will allow the majority of wheelchairs and push chairs through. Some, however, can be difficult to negotiate with an electric scooter.
There are three main categories of access:
  • No access controls and with level or ramped access
  • Motorcycle barriers with level or ramped access
  • Steps
