The Perkins Street stairs and retaining wall at the intersection with Church Street, The Hill are currently closed. Please consider using Wolfe Street as a safer route for access between Church and King Street.
The heritage sandstone wall and stairs require rectification works to allow them to be safely reopened to the public. Detailed design for the work is currently underway and repair work is scheduled to commence in January 2023. The Perkins Street stairs are expected to reopen to the public in April 2023, on the completion of the rectification work, weather dependent.
We will make every effort to preserve the structure while ensuring the safety of pedestrians.
