This specification was prepared in order to increase accessibility of the rail transport for the people with limited mobility. It’s impementaion provides conveniences for the impaired in the infrastructural buildings and will make the barrier platform-car easy to go through, together with the safe and comfortable travel in the car.
Quoting TSI PRM 18.104.22.168 : “Information towards the visually impaired persons should be conveyed at least in one of the ways:
- guidelines, voice and/ or Braille signs, “Talking” markings, Braille enhanced maps, etc.
-if, on the barrier-free path towards the platform, there are guide-rails or walls, than , on the back side of guide-rail or on the wall at 850 to 1100 mm , there should be short information available (f.ex. Platform number or direction information), made in Braill or other convex alphabet; mail pictograms recognizable by touch being numers and direction arrows.
Widespread standardization of markings has great meaning for the blind and visually impaired. Generalization of the markings system may become repeatable, useful tool to understand accessibility on the same level in all the places prepared for the visually impaired.
