The public toilets at the busiest railway station in the country are free to use from today, as Network Rail continue their efforts to make passenger journeys more comfortable. This is the latest in a program to make toilets free in all their stations by April this year.
Estimates suggest that in excess of 1.5 million people use these facilities each year, making them a sure contender for one of the busiest toilets in the country!
Cem Davis, Waterloo station manager for Network Rail, said:
“We’re determined to improve passenger journeys through the busiest railway station in the country, and we’re delighted to make what must surely be the nation’s busiest loos, free for everyone. If you need to spend a penny at Waterloo station, you won’t need to spend your pennies.”
Anthony Smith, chief executive of the independent watchdog Transport Focus, said:
“Scrapping toilet charges is a welcome step for passengers. Toilets are a priority for improvement at stations according to our research and will signal the end of fumbling around in your pocket for change to spend a penny.”
