Stairways on campus

Whilst the stairways dotted around campus range from very attractive (eg. the dual splitting steps from the Law building down to the road opposite Sports Science) to very-much-an-eyesore (the steps from next to Chemical Engineering leading down towards Mechanical Engineering) they all have one thing in common - it's rather difficult to wheel a bike up or down them. Or a wheelchair for that matter.

Take for example the long, shallow stairway from Sports Science to Mechanical Engineering (the one where the edges of the steps are painted yellow). There are about 40-50 steps at my estimate, split across three shorter flights, yet the incline of the slope is barely enough to warrant having any steps there at all.

On the other hand, ramps are wonderful :-)
