More disabled-friendly facilities needed


KOTA KINABALU: A recent nationwide audit conducted by the International Islamic University Malaysia on public amenities found that only a quarter of the facilities met the standards required for handicapped people.
Deputy Dean (Postgraduate, Research and Development) Prof Dr Asiah Abdul Rahim said the university conducted 16 case studies throughout the country and found only four with the required standards.
The facilities for the handicapped in the other cases were found to be below par, she told reporters after opening a workshop on Universal Design in Building Environment at the Kota Kinabalu City Hall.
“We hope all local councils and authorities will give priority to disabled-friendly facilities in their development plans,” she said.
The audit, conducted together with the Department of Standards Malaysia, covered such places as the Malacca Museum and the waterfronts in Kota Kinabalu, Kuching, Danga Bay Johor and Kuantan.
The audit team also studied the facilities at Berjaya Times Square, the Bukit Bintang pedestrian walk, the Penang and Bandar Tasik Selatan train terminals, a housing estate in Seremban and Persiaran Perdana Putrajaya.
She said the study not only looked at the basic infrastructure available but also the access to government services for handicapped people.
