Work is set to start in the near future on new public toilets in Melton town centre, a recent news report in the local media has been able to find.
The existing public conveniences on St Mary’s Way will be demolished to make way for a new upgraded building with better access for disabled people.
New toilets will also be built in the Wilton Road car park with the public still able to use the existing ones on the site. Melton Borough Council, which expects the new toilets to be ready to use by next May, has timed the work to begin after the traditionally busy Christmas Victorian Fayre.
Councillor Alan Pearson, chair of the community and social affairs committee, said: “Refurbishment of the public toilets in Melton is a great project and I am looking forward to seeing the completed facilities in May. “The new facilities will comply with the latest standards for disability access and be semi-automated.
Charging a fee for access is the most sensible solution when it comes to public toilets’ funding, and this is exactly where Toilet Turnstiles could really put 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.
