Accessibility map (beta)

Accessibility map

Getting around the city centre

Understanding where potential barriers such as stairs or steep hills are, or access features such as the nearest accessible toilet or taxi rank is, provides people with disability greater confidence to visit the city.

More importantly, it lets people with disability participate in numerous activities with more independence and dignity.

Our online accessibility map, presently in beta, provides information about key access features such as mobility parking spaces and accessible public toilets, potential barriers such as stairs and steep and moderate inclines.
