Barrier-free conversion of the central bus station in Amberg
In accordance with paragraph 8 PBefG (German Public Transport Act) the central bus station in Amberg is planned to be reconstructed and made barrier-free. With PB CONSULT having already successfully undertaken service phases 1 to 3, the ZNAS (administration union for local transport in Amberg) commissioned PB CONSULT once more for the service phases 5 to 8.
The central bus station in Amberg was built in 2000, is equipped with 16 bus stops and is currently being served by 27 different numbers, including 13 city bus routes as well as 14 cross-country bus routes.
Essential for the barrier-free conversion of the central bus station are the following points:
• Adjustment of the pedestrian crossings
• Clearance widths
• Guidance notes in the form of tactile walking indicators
• Tactile overview maps and signposts
• Adjustment of door closing of the customer information, waiting area and toilet facilities
Simultaneously to these crucial points, in the context of the construction works, it is also planned to remediate the kerbstones of the bus station. After almost 20 years, busy bus traffic and weather conditions have left marks on the kerbs. For this purpose, a detailed remediation concept has been developed by PB CONSULT.
The required work will be carried out in 2020.
