• D.

2.5 mm

B. 6.5 mm
Explanation
The correct answer is 6.5 mm. This is because walkways should have a continuing surface without abrupt pitches in angle or interruptions by cracks or breaks creating edges above. A pitch in angle or interruptions by cracks or breaks can create tripping hazards and make it difficult for people to walk smoothly. A surface with a height difference of 6.5 mm would be more likely to create a tripping hazard compared to the other options.

### In lengthy or busy walkways, spaces should be provided at some point along the route so that a wheelchair may pass another or turn around. These spaces should have a minimum dimension of 1.5 m and should be spaced at a maximum distance of ?

• A.

12 m between stops

• B.

6 m between stops

• C.

10 m between stops

• D.

15 m between stops

B. 6 m between stops
Explanation
The maximum distance between stops should be determined by ensuring that individuals using wheelchairs have sufficient access to turning points or areas where they can pass each other comfortably. Given that spaces for turning or passing should have a minimum dimension of 1.5 m, it is important to consider the maximum distance between stops in order to ensure that individuals using wheelchairs have access to these spaces frequently enough along the route.
If we assume that the maximum distance between stops should allow for at least one turning or passing space along the route, then the maximum distance between stops should not exceed the distance that would require a wheelchair user to travel more than 1.5 m without access to such a space.
Therefore, the maximum distance between stops should be less than or equal to 6 m (since 6 m would allow a wheelchair user to travel 1.5 m and still have access to another space for turning or passing).

### To guide the blind, walkways should as much as possible follow straight forward routes in?

• A.

45 degree angle

• B.

Right angle

• C.

Perfect rounded curve

• D.

Chamfered corner with metal gratings

B. Right angle
Explanation
To guide the blind effectively, walkways should follow right angles as much as possible. Right angles provide clear and distinct paths, making it easier for visually impaired individuals to navigate and maintain a straight line of travel. This minimizes confusion and potential hazards, ensuring a safer and more accessible environment for the blind.

### Walkway headroom is  preferably higher. and should not be less than? 2.40 m 2.10 m 2.00 m  x 2.70 m

• A.

2.40 m

• B.

2.10 m

• C.

2.00 m

• D.

2.70 m

C. 2.00 m
Explanation
The correct answer is 2.00 m. The question is asking for the minimum headroom height for a walkway. A higher headroom is preferred to ensure that people can comfortably walk without hitting their heads on the ceiling. The answer of 2.00 m indicates that the headroom should not be less than this height.
