Short straw drawn as facilities flushed away
I HAVE been extremely disappointed to learn that the toilets at Royston bus station are to be closed in March next year. As a frequent bus user, I know that the toilets are not under-used as claimed. They are used by both passengers and drivers before
I HAVE been extremely disappointed to learn that the toilets at Royston bus station are to be closed in March next year.
As a frequent bus user, I know that the toilets are not "under-used" as claimed. They are used by both passengers and drivers before or after making a bus journey.
Most buses now have facilities for disabled people, but not toilet facilities.
The Fish Hill toilets may not be far way, but if drivers and passengers have to use those it could result in buses being delayed or missed.
You may also want to watch:
It is also claimed that the toilets are at a "poor" location, but this is certainly not the case for those using or working on the buses.
I should be interested to learn whether any other toilets at bus stations are to be closed in the county. I suspect not and that once again Royston has drawn the short straw.

I am not sure of the exact figures, but I believe that since I came to Royston in 1968 the population of the town has more than doubled.
This must equate to a substantial increase in the amount of council tax which should be available to enable our existing facilities to meet disability laws without the necessity to reduce them.
