Many new commercial and office buildings are going up all over Honiara but very few make any concessions to people with mobility problems.
It is high time a building code was introduced by the City Council to make all new buildings accessible to people who cannot climb steps. Every new building should have an entrance ramp. The new Bulk shop at Rove is a perfect example of a building with such a ramp.
Many of our people living with diabetes who have had amputations or orthopedeic patients suffering from arthritis and needing walking aids are excluded from many buildings in Honiara.
Lack of buildings accessible to mobility challenged citizens
