The public toilets at one of the busiest railway stations in the country are free to use from today. This fulfils Network Rail’s commitment to make toilets ‘free to pee’ in all its 19 managed stations.
Each year, about 1.3 million toilet users at London Liverpool Street get through almost 2,000 jumbo loo rolls. If you rolled them out, they would stretch from the station to Amsterdam.
Stuart Johnson, Liverpool Street station manager for Network Rail, said:
“We’re determined to improve passenger journeys through one of the busiest railway stations in the country, and we’re thrilled to make our loos free for everyone.
“It won’t cost you a penny if you need to spend a penny at London Liverpool Street station.”
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.”
Liverpool Street station is used by 67 million passengers each year, which makes it the third busiest railway station in the country. It was Network Rail’s commitment to make toilets free in all of its stations by 1 April 2019.
