Cambridge visitors and residents wanting to “spend a penny” in one of the city’s public toilets might have to pay 30p later on this year, a 50 percent hike compared to the 20p they spend at this time, a news report in the local media was able to reveal.
The significant increase in the fees at loos is among the proposals in an emergency budget which the new administration is set to force through.
Increasing toilet charges would bring in up to £10,000 annually, with the cash being used towards a set of anti-poverty measures, such as doubling the number of enforcement officers tasked with keeping the city clean from three to six, and the employment of an officer to encourage employers in Cambridge to pay staff the ‘living wage’.
Toilet Turnstiles supplies an extensive range of access restriction solutions for public conveniences. 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.
