A set of public toilets located next to Andover Bus Station is set to undergo major refurbishment works in order to make them “fit for purpose” once again, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.
Test Valley Borough Council announced the public toilets in Andover Chantry Centre near Andover Bus Station will be fitted with new toilets, sinks, hand dryers and cubicles, plus there will be a complete redecoration of the facility.
More environmentally sustainable technology will also be employed, including sensor taps, LED lighting and modern and efficient heating systems.
The work is expected to take 12 weeks to complete. During that time the authority will provide temporary toilet facilities near the taxi rank behind Waitrose.
Councillor Phil North, leader of the council, said: “The existing toilets have consistently attracted criticism from shoppers and visitors.
“I am therefore pleased that having purchased the centre earlier this year, we are finally able to undertake the work and we are now well on our way to delivering new facilities that will be fit for purpose.
“I look forward to this project progressing over the coming weeks and hope to see the newly refurbished toilets open for use as quickly as possible.”
Charging a fee for access is quite often the most sensible solution when it comes to public toilets’ funding – and indeed keeping these facilities open for the general public, 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.
