A Wheelchair tale of two cities

I found this interesting article, comparing wheelchair access in London and Paris, on the BBC website. It's also worth reading Ouch! the BBC's disability magazine while you're there.

Portable Access Ramps

Portable Access Ramps are very useful for premises that cannot accommodate a permanent ramp, but need to provide wheelchair access. We have recently updated the Dolphin website to feature some of the portable ramp products that we are able to supply. The following links show product information and prices.
We have found that this type of ramp is particularly popular with owners of listed buildings, who have a duty to provide disabled access, but are faced with strict building regulations when they try to do something about it. Other customers include schools, libraries, shops and many people in their own homes.
