Bhubaneswar, March 3, 2018: The East Coast Railway (ECoR) has
introduced Mobile Wheel Chair Foldable Ramp at Bhubaneswar, Sambalpur and
Visakhapatnam Railway stations on a pilot basis for the benefit of the Divyang
passengers to board the train in a hassle free manner. 
The foldable ramp is designed and fabricated by ECoR and can
be easily carried. This facility will be provided free of cost to the passengers
that can be availed by showing any of their Identity Cards.
The beneficiaries will have to inform the Wheel Chair Section
near Chief Ticket Inspector (CTI) Office at the Stations.
Earlier, Divyang passengers were facing difficulties in
boarding the train coach due to gap between the train and platform or they were
taking help of their relatives or of co-passengers to reach their berths.
After reviewing the success of this pilot project, East Coast
Railway is planning to provide this facility at other important Stations over
its jurisdiction, shortly. The response received at the three stations has been
quite positive and encouraging.
