A campaigner managed to get 1,095 people to sign a document calling on the Portsmouth city council to reconsider its decision to close a public toilet located in a very busy area, a news report in the local media has revealed.
The toilet is just one of 12 toilets that have been closed by the local authority as it tries to make £200,000 worth of savings. However, due to its location, it makes it extremely difficult for users to go elsewhere.
“It means the elderly people around here can’t go out and the children find it very difficult.”, the campaigner argued.
Although cash strapped council do have to do their best in order to maintain vital services and cut back wherever they can, implementing an access restriction system and charging for access within these public conveniences might be something they should take into account, on the long-term, and this is exactly where Toilet Turnstiles could really puts its experience to good work.
Our toilet turnstiles are built from graded stainless steel, for easier cleaning and maintenance, and also come equipped with lockable lids to prevent unwanted access. Furthermore, the separate coin box offers very versatile mounting options, as it can be installed either in front of the turnstile, at the side or alternatively, on the wall, with the cash box at the rear.
The turnstile’s coin mechanism can be programmed for virtually any combination of coins with a secure cash box to hold them, while the additional counters for the number of entries made will enable a thorough level of control over the system’s operation.
