Braille sign boards now at Bengaluru City station
March 17, 2017
Braille signage boards have been set up at the Bengaluru City railway station to help the visually impaired. Six hundred Braille boards across the station have been set up to guide the visually impaired walk around without any help.
There are two tactile maps at the entrance, which provide direction to ticket counters, platforms, washrooms and restaurants. A visually impaired person can feel the Braille signs and move around.
There are Braille signs on railings of staircases leading to various platforms, in both Kannada and English languages.
