[Survey] Elevator between MRT Samyan and Samyan Mitrtown

On the survey undertaken on 27 November I found that the elevator between the MRT Samyan ticket office floor and the underpass leading to Samyan Mitrtown Mall is exceptionally small. I’m in my 60cm-wide wheelchair and when in the elevator there was hardly any room left. I doubt that an elevator of this size could possibly serve passengers in electric wheelchairs or with double strollers.

Survey of ground level area underneath MRT/Taopoon Station : Bent gutter covers

The photo speaks for itself. Rewinding back three years: The MRT Purple Line came into operation. We provided lots of information for service improvements to MRT. One of the issues we reported, and was fixed, was the skywalk from MRT/Bangyai Station leading to the entrance of Central Westgate. Back then, we noticed curved gutter covers that were very much like the ones in the photo. We see the same problem at MRT/Taopoon Station although the station has not been in use for that long either.

[Accessibility Survey] MRT Bang Pho Station

During the construction we saw the layout and lift locations and had concerns over the issue of their accessibility. Now the station is open, here are our findings on accessibility:

A footpath problem at the opposite Wat Phta Sri Mahathat. To build a great city for all, we first must begin with a small simple step.

I already posted the problem at this area on my previous post and asked for your opinions. Now, I would like to give a piece of my thoughts. 1. The footpath is so inclined, too inclined even for normal pedestrian to walk. 2. The electric pole is placed at the centre of the footpath, seriously? 3. The footpath is too narrow with other obstacles.

ALERT! A huge accessibility problem found at the skywalk connecting Wat Phra Sri Mahathat station to Tesco Lotus Laksi, on the recent Green Line extension of the BTS skytrain!

  I just got this image from one of our networks on yesterday. Surprised by what I saw before, and sadly once again, there was a steep stairway! on the skywalk which connected right next to the Wat Phra Sri Mahathat station, a brand-new BTS station, way down to Tesco Lotus Laksi. This was annoying me so much because previously I had a meeting with the MRTA team, who’s in charge of this, and I insisted no stair on skywalks anymore. And they firmly promised my request. But is this what we got? By the way, we have quite a …
