    A bad case of tunnel vision

    News, Published on 23/03/2013

    ยป It is ironic that in a week that has seen the unveiling of world-class restroom and care facilities for those with disabilities at Suvarnabhumi airport, the capital's subway transit system has unleashed a storm of protest by deciding to switch off its down escalators during off-peak hours, a move that will hit expectant mothers, the disabled, the arthritic and the elderly hard. The irony, of course, is that while the airport's facilities were so primitive they were branded as hostile to the disabled when the terminal opened in 2006, the MRT subway system has always been cited as a shining example of how to get things right and adopted as a model by campaigners worldwide because of its easy access, legible signs and audio messages.
