Frequently Asked Questions About DDA Ramps

What is DDA compliance?

A disabled person has a right to have access to public places. The Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) makes it against the law for public places to be inaccessible to people with a disability.

Public places include banks, cafes, hospitals, libraries, offices, parks, pedestrian footpaths and walkways, public transportation, restaurants, schools, shops, theatres and more. This also applies to existing public places under construction.

What is the maximum slope for a wheelchair ramp in Australia?

In Australia, the Australian Standards Council requires a wheelchair ramp to have a maximum incline of 1 in 14. This means that for every 14 metres travelled horizontally, the ramp rises 1 metre.

How wide does a disabled ramp need to be in Australia?

In Australia, the Australian Standards Council requires a wheelchair ramp to have a minimum width of 1 metre.
