Panaji: Candolim beach would become Goa’s first wheelchair accessible beach with the installation of a permanent wooden ramp starting from the main beach right up to the waves. Deputy speaker and Calangute MLA Michael Lobo announced on Wednesday that wheelchair accessibility and other amenities for the disabled would be completed within the next two months.
This ramps would be replicated at the beaches of Calangute, Baga, near Titos and Sinquerim, before it is taken to other beaches in the state, Lobo told reporters on the sidelines of BeachFest2017, a festival to celebrate beach accessibility, organized an online travel platform for persons with disabilities named Umoja.
