Premier Alden McLaughlin said the country’s first disabilities law will help level the playing field for people with disabilities.
At this week’s Fidelity CEO conference, the premier said George Town revitalisation plans will make the capital more accessible to everyone.
“Part and parcel of the revitalization of George Town is making it more accessible for our people, residents, and tourists with disabilities,” said Mr. McLaughlin.
“Potholes for one, cracks in the sidewalk, high curbs, and maybe some signs to let the people know that a wheelchair could be present,” were some areas visitor Andrew Green of Pennsylvania suggested may need improvement.
Mr. Green said he managed to get around George Town just fine in his wheelchair, but he told Cayman 27 there still are some areas of the central city that need some work to be truly accessible.
