On November 14, a group of disabled organizations in Saitama city confirmed the status of barrier-free maintenance in the city, on and around JR Saitama Shintoshin Station. About twenty-five people participated and looked around the width of the passage and the ease of walking of the Braille blocks.

The twenty-five people from various disability groups, checked the station square, pedestrian deck, station premises and so on. At the station, wheelchair participants checked the convenience of the multipurpose toilet, and at the platform, all members checked the location of the Braille blocks and the gap between the platform and the train.

“The New City Center is a new city, but there are issues with how to arrange braille blocks. Next year there will be the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics,” said Assistant Professor Tomoyuki Inagaki, who specializes in urban transportation planning and serves as the chairman of the department. I want it to lead to an overall environmental improvement. ”
