A video on the installation of Braille information boards and Braille-embossed handrails at Coimbatore Railway Station.

The video shows the installation of Braille information boards and Braille-embossed handrails on at Coimbatore Railway Station, the first railway station under Southern Railway to become visually challenged-friendly.

Coimbatore also earns the distinction of being the fourth station under the Railways to become visually challenged-friendly following Mysuru, Bengaluru stations in Karnataka and Borivali station in Mumbai, Maharashtra.

A railway official said on Saturday that two Braille master boards – one at the main entrance and the second in the back entrance near Information Centre – have been installed, which lays out the blueprint of the railway station for the visually challenged passengers. Apart from these, the offices and amenities such as taps and toilets in the railway station have been fitted with Braille boards.
