Municipal bodies in Iranian metropolises, from Tehran to Isfahan, are becoming more socially responsible and upgrading urban infrastructure to meet the needs of the physically-impaired community.
This week, Tehran Mayor Pirouz Hanachi emphasized in a press conference that henceforth, no urban project should be launched unless its compatibility with the needs of the physically-challenged citizens is ensured.
"Ideally, all the paths, urban facilities and public transportation systems should be adjusted for the use of mothers carrying their toddlers in baby strollers, the elderly and those with physical impairments," he added.
Hanachi noted that urban managers in the capital have been ordered to make changes in public places, like parks, shopping malls, walkways, bus stations and urban transportation system, making them more convenient for those with special needs.
