IMPROVING OF URBAN PUBLIC SPACES SAFETY IN ORDER TO USING PHYSICAL DISABLED PERSONS

Abstract

Today, one of the problems in our cities is inappropriate urban public spaces in order to using physical disabled persons. There are obstacles at urban sidewalk that have been led to problems for them. Obstacles are such as: inappropriate stairs, unsuitable cover streets, connectivity bridges and etc. so, making condition for creating appropriate spaces in our cities is important issue. The aim of this paper is to focus attention on the needs of disabled people for special solutions in the design of squares, pavements, parks and other pedestrian areas. My point is, that besides actually making life easier for the disabled, these solutions will enhance the places they are used – and they are neither uglier nor more expensive. In this process the meaning of “equality” is that a society, we can call it a city, belongs to everyone .So a good city for every one is a city which all the facilities and opportunities for the better life are accessible to everyone. This research is applied. the research method is” analytical – descriptive”. Finding shows urban planning is succeed while paying attention to all of people in cities. So, terms should be defined for all
