Have you ever noticed these colourful wooden ramps in the doorways of some of our Kensington businesses?
We noticed that wheelchairs and strollers had difficulty getting in and out of some stores with doorways that were not flush with the sideway so we decided to find a cost-effective solution to this problem.
In 2016 the BRZ worked with Accessible Housing to custom build and install colourful wheelchair/stroller ramps for businesses whose doorways are not flush with the sidewalk. These ramps are deployed when the business opens and taken in when the business closes.
Thank you to Accessible Housing for partnering with us on this project.
Cost to the BRZ: time and a little ingenuity.
