A railway company is auctioning off the site of an ex-public toilet facility this week. Network Rail wants to sell the public convenience block and 0.023 acres of surrounding land, which is situated in Bath, and the auctioned item has a starting price of £20,000. The auctioneers added that the site "may afford potential for redevelopment".
As this case shows, more and more public toilets are being closed because they are expensive to maintain and their owners would rather cash in on the land they sit upon. However, Carpark Barriers & Turnstiles can install toilet turnstiles which allow authorities to provide toilets by creating revenue via an entry fee. This helps pay for their day to day maintenance and cleaning, with the added benefit of preventing people from wandering into the toilets as they now have to "spend a penny".
The turnstiles are manufactured from graded stainless steel for ease of cleaning and have lockable lids to prevent unwanted access. All of our turnstiles are supplied complete with a two year warranty.
