CB786 “Nature Access to All (NatAc)”
In the end of August, the first significant activity took place in the new NatAc nature accessibility project for improving the infrastructure in order to facilitate the trails’ accessibility – we have installed a 5cm protective border at Būšnieki Lake boardwalk along its entire length on both sides.
The border ensures additional safety for people in wheelchairs and parents with baby strollers, allowing to cross the boardwalk more safely, not being afraid of accidently falling down at the edge. The border also serves as a guideline to the blind and people with visual impairment who are using the white cane. A simple, though such a useful solution:)
Till the end of the year it is also foreseen to install a dry closet accessible to people in wheelchairs, as well as a number of benches all along the trail, thus significantly facilitating the trail’s accessibility to all groups of hikers and travellers!
The project is being implemented with support of the Central Baltic Programme 2014-2020.
