New rules to help city's disabled, elderly

By Hu Min

New regulations on the construction of a barrier-free environment will be effective from June.

The regulations were passed by the city government in February and the previous ones effective in 2003 and amended in 2010 will be abolished.

Barrier-free refers to an environment where disabled, sick or elderly people and children can take public transport, communicate and receive social services independently and safely, said Wang Haidong, an official with the Shanghai Disabled Persons' Federation.
