Stairways To Metro Are More Accessible

21 metro station of St. Petersburg will be equipped with wheelchair elevators.


Handicapped people would be able to move up and down the metro staircases. St. Petersburg metro announced a bid for purchasing ‘Standard SA-2’ model stair climbers. ‘Standard SA-2’ devices have rubber track belt, which allows transporting wheelchairs up and down stairways. The elevator is designed to attach under wheelchair in order to get up or down the staircases. Upon arrival to the metro station disabled persons should claim the elevators from metro staff. The wheelchair climbers will be available only on St. Petersburg metro stations, which are not designated with low inclined doorways. There are 21 stations in total within the city. The climbers will be purchased later on – they arrive by the end of 2013 as expected.
