MetadataShow full item record
In the era of integration of all means of transport, there is revived interest in railway transport, which cannot any long exist as a transport system on its own or as an independent part within the growing cities. This renaissance of railway transport, and its integration with other means of transportation, led to a great production of exclusive terminals in recent days. High demands and investments related to these objects gathered together the most prominent architects and constructors, and as result offered a diversity of modern terminals, which integrate the static and dynamic character of the building into a unified whole, and celebrate new technologies and speed. Removal of barriers for customers, abundance of daylight, space filled with views, easy orientation and safe passage through space are some of the most important imperatives for modern railway terminals. Among other things this includes accessibility of railway infrastructure for persons with reduced mobility. The paper... explores conditions for implementation of 'Technical Specification for Interoperability - People with Reduced Mobility' on Serbian Railways. .
