Chennai beach to be made accessible for people with disabilities


Disability rights activists and Chennai civic officials carried out an accessibility audit of the city's famous Marina beach recently.

The aim is to make the beach accessible to people with disabilities.

Temporary wooden pathways on coir mats from road, tactile pathways and signage are the ideas that are being looked at by officials.

Parking spaces, ramps leading to toilets and separate toilets for wheelchair users will be worked out before World Disability Day that is celebrated on 3 December.
