Public toilet officially opened in Station Square


A new self-cleaning toilet has now been installed at Station Square by Milton Keynes Council.

The toilet is free to use and will be open every day for 24 hours. It features an automatic door, baby changing facilities and disabled access. It opened on Monday 12 May.

The toilet will self-clean after each user keeping the facility hygienic. The toilet bowl is antibacterial cleaned and high pressure water jets spray the walls and floor.

Users get a maximum of 15 minutes in the unit before the door will open although for disabled Radar key holders this can be set to accommodate their needs.

The three year maintenance contract for the toilet has been awarded to Healthmatic Ltd who will clean the toilet on a daily basis and provide a 24-hour maintenance helpline.

Pipework to provide the opportunity for public toilets in this area were originally put in by Milton Keynes Council during the redevelopment of Station Square who provided the necessary infrastructure.

The toilet has special design features to stop anti-social behaviour inside the unit. It is also fitted with smoke detectors and a sprinkler system.

John Pryor, Assistant Director for Public Realm said, “Station Square users have highlighted the need for a public toilet in this area and I am delighted that this Milton Keynes Council project has now delivered this.”
