Ankara Metropolitan Municipality continues to implement projects that will facilitate the lives of disabled citizens and enable them to participate in social life.
The Environmental Protection and Control Department will provide free service to disabled citizens with a total of 28 charging stations at international standards in Ankara's 36 recreational areas and prestige parks, which are heavily used.
34 CHARGING STATIONS HAVE BEEN INSTALLED SO FAR
The Metropolitan Municipality, which has signed an important project for disabled individuals, has so far established 3 of the charging stations compatible with all battery-operated vehicles in international standards, where 34 disabled vehicles can be charged at the same time.
The Metropolitan Municipality, which will start to install a charging unit in Beypazarı Atatürk Park on August 9, plans to complete the installation of a charging station in Etimesgut Gazi Park by August 1.
Thanks to the 1,5-meter-long porch, the stations that provide shade during charging and the instant charging status can be followed on the display will provide a sigh of relief to the disabled citizens who are worried about running out of battery charge.
Disabled citizens, who are afraid of walking around the parks in the city due to the charging problem, will now have the opportunity to walk around the green areas with peace of mind thanks to these stations.
GOAL: A HAPPY CAPITAL
Stating that they have implemented a new technological application for disabled citizens using electric wheelchairs, Environmental Protection and Control Department Head Hasan Muhammet Güldaş gave the following information:
“We continue to work to make our capital more modern and to provide a city where all our citizens are happier by meeting their needs. In line with the demands of our esteemed President, we are placing our charging station devices in 28 recreation areas, especially in prestige parks, in order to ensure that the disabled vehicles can spend a long time when they come to the parks and to bring solutions to this. After seeing the results of this application, we will increase the number of stations even more. We hope it will be beneficial and make serious contributions to facilitating the lives of disabled citizens.”
THE CHARGER ALSO HAS A DISPLAY THAT CAN FOLLOW CURRENT INFORMATION
Disabled citizens with a battery-powered vehicle will be able to watch the current information, news and promotions of the Metropolitan Municipality, thanks to the screen at the charging station, while charging their vehicles without getting bored.
