New loo block finished at last
VISITORS pulling into the Grafton Street bus depot will now be greeted by the sleekness of stainless steel, corrugated iron and cement flooring after they make the mad dash to the bathroom they had been holding out for.
The Rose City has finally said goodbye to the iconic orange brick block, with the formal opening of the new Grafton Street toilets last week.
Director of Engineering Services Peter See said the new design incorporated better lighting to limit the amount of vandalism, while also incorporating a heritage theme with the gable roof and colouring.
“We tried to replicate some sort of heritage feel and the stainless steel and concrete make it easier to keep clean,” Mr See said.
St Mary's Catholic Church have also begun a makeover of their toilet facilities as they build a new disabled toilet to be finished at the end of August.
