In a strident reversal of his own previous ruling, (where R' Elyashiv clearly ruled that Shabbat Elevators are absolutely forbidden, both going up and down), R' Elyashiv is reportedly going to change his ruling and permit the use of Shabbat elevators (at least for the elderly, sick, and pregnant) both going up and down.
This is a result of the Belze Rebbe requesting from Rav Elyashiv to meet with experts on Shabbat elevators.
More details after Shabbat on this breaking story.
