Shenzhen: China’s Instant City

Sean Marshall makes some observations on his trip to Shenzhen for spacing toronto:

Unfortunately, almost no thought is given to the disabled. There are narrow ramps along the stairs leading to most overpasses for walking bicycles and strollers across, but are useless for wheelchairs. In fact, this is something that struck me while in Shenzhen - China does not have standards for the disabled that you see here or in Europe. Most overpasses lack ramps or elevators, even new buses are not low-floor or lift-equipped, and most new buildings lack basic level access. Interestingly, though, at night, the overpasses become informal markets for toys, clothes, household goods and CDs and DVDs. Every once in a while, the police conduct raid, but is rare enough that it is still one way to make a living.
