Let us see what is provided at Bukit Jambul shopping complex,Penang

Welcome back…Most of us like to go for shopping right…so now I bring you to Bukit Jambul(BJ) shopping complex, Penang. But not to buy anything…just want to do a survey on the facilities provided for disability. Now we present to you the facilities provided at BJ.

Picture shown above is the main entrance to BJ shopping complex. How is the situation if persons with disability especially for those who are using wheel chair join their family to do their shopping here? They can’t use this stair. I guess those who are not using the wheel chair can use this stair to come into BJ shopping complex because it is provided with handrail at both side. The step is also quiet wide and not too high for them to step.

We found the ramp for person with disability which is using wheel chair but it is quiet far from the entrance to that building. It is located at the left and right side of the main entrance and they might take few minutes to find the ramp.

But what is happened here? Can you see... can you imagine how they want to use this ramp? I don’t think is a better accessibility. What do you think? This conditition might bring difficulties to persons with disability who are using wheel chair. Besides that, this is not the straight ramp but a bit circle and quiet long. In addition, there is no landing area for them to rest while they are tired.

Here is the main entrance to this building. I guess it is not easy for those who are using wheel chair pass this step by themselves. There must be someone help them to lift and push the wheel chair or else they will just stop there. This is just the view outside the building. Next time I will bring all of you to judge the accessibility inside this building…Tunggu…:)
