Levels of accessibility vary according to when our facilities were built and when major renovations were completed, so not all parts of the facility may be “accessible for all”. This information indicates the parts of the facility that are barrier-free and is provided to help customer(s) with a disability find a facility that can meet their particular sensory or mobility needs.
