The sexagenarian inventor was inspired by a fellow wheelchair user who built Lego ramps in her northern German town, reports iNews.

Needless to say, the project has resonated with Hanau’s citizens.

“Nobody just walks past a Lego ramp without taking a look,” says Ebel. “Whether it’s children who try to get the bricks out or adults who take out their mobile phones to take pictures.”

More importantly, the ramps’ bright colors make them visible to those with disabilities from far away. “Finally you can see from afar that you can get in here without any problems,” says Malika El Harti, who obtained a Lego runway for her hair salon.

The Lego entrances have garnered global recognition as well, with tourism associations in Spain and the United States both expressing interest in Ebel’s creation. Not only that but the inventor sent ramp-building directions to people in Austria and Switzerland so they can re-create them in their hometowns.

“Our campaign is picking up speed and rolling,” says a proud Ebel. “It’s great to see how many people are interested in it and want to participate.”
