Stop architectural barriers: Rimini, 90,000 euros to install sidewalk ramps

Away with architectural barriers: yesterday (Tuesday, November 21), the Rimini City Council approved a document with design guidelines for the second tranche of interventions worth 90,000 euros, which aims to make urban spaces accessible by creating ramps and slides.

The work will be carried out by Anthea and will concern sidewalks and footpaths, which will be the subject of citizens’ reports in addition to the analyzes carried out by the municipality’s staff.

The first series of works included Piazzale Cesare Zavattini, Via Emilia, Via Toniolo and Park Gianni Rodari.

“Interventions aimed at removing physical obstacles and the use of spaces for people with reduced mobility and moving in wheelchairs – is the comment of the councilor for public works of the municipality of Rimini, Mattia Morolli -. An investment that we consider a priority to make the city of Rimini truly livable for everyone, without discrimination, which presupposes the presence of spacious, well-connected and intelligently built infrastructures”.

Stop architectural barriers, Parco del Mare is an example of aesthetics and functionality

Councilor Morolli dives into the topic in depth and quotes Parco del Mare as “an example of a place that combines aesthetics and functionality with the removal of architectural barriers: ramps, walkways and playgrounds like Foresta del Mare, financed with 550,000 euros and also taken as a model internationally”.

“And then – continues Morolli – are all the interventions in the V Peep area, including those in via Simonini, in via Bianchelli and behind via delle Fiera, on the Ex Cinema Astoria side, where the reconstruction of the ramps has been completed”.

Interventions on sports facilities s “improving the accessibility of the swimming pool in Flaminio and the purchase of a travel support, the installation of a stairlift in the sports hall to access the basketball court, the modification of the bathrooms of the Carim gymnasium”.

To this “the chapter of the Viserba school campus is completed with a redevelopment in terms of the inclusivity of the adjacent parking lot”.

“Even the green areas of the parks – Morolli comments – have been and will be the focus of important interventions, see the Pellosi Park in Viserba and the €1.6 million intervention planned for next year in the Torino Bello Park. There are also extensive interventions in various arteries, such as via jano Planco and via Matteotti, which pass through the territory”.
