  新电梯中国网讯

  据路透社等多家媒体报道,美国某地方法院在3月5日判定纽约大都会运输署地铁站翻修工程中涉及的电梯设备,必须符合美国残障法案。该判决来自于残障人士权利团体对纽约大都会运输署的诉讼,该团体针对布朗克斯区米德尔顿路地铁站注资2700万美元的翻修工程中,居然没有涵盖电梯设备而起。联邦政府后来也加入诉讼。布朗克斯区一个残障人士宣传小组称该判决是全纽约需要乘搭地铁的市民的共同的胜利,而美国一名律师也称,这次判决也将对未来的地铁站翻修工程有效。根据非营利残障人权倡导团队的统计,目前纽约的地铁装有电梯设备的不足25%。而纽约大都会运输署署长Andy Byford称这确实是目前首要任务。

   RULING: ELEVATORS MUST BE PART OF NYC MTA STATION UPGRADES

  A U.S. district judge ruled on March 5 that elevators must be part of Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) subway station renovations in New York City (NYC) to be in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, various news outlets, including Reuters, report. The ruling was the result of a lawsuit disability-rights groups filed against the MTA over not including an elevator in the US$27-million renovation of the Middletown Road Station in the Bronx. The federal government later joined that lawsuit. A Bronx disability advocacy group said the ruling was a major victory for all New Yorkers who need elevators to access the subway, and a U.S. attorney said the ruling will apply to all future station renovations. Fewer than 25% of NYC subway stations have elevators, according to the nonprofit Disability Rights Advocates. MTA President Andy Byford has said accessibility is a top priority.
