New Mount Victoria Concrete Staircase

Petition details

It asks for a concrete staircase, with stainless steel handrails, between Palliser Road and Lookout Road, from the gravel track entry points. Rests seats, with International Peace Symbols, would be on the way. It would be similar to the one between Elphinstone Avenue and Tannadyce Street, in Strathmore Park. It would bypass very steep paths.

Background information

The present gravel and dirt route is extremely indirect and long. Photos of the proposal are in the website below. The proposal would make it suitable for all ages and allow lunch hour joggers to easily reach the summit lookout from Oriental Bay
