Allhallows Toilet to Close for Refurbishment

 

17th March 2011

Public toilets at Allhallows will close shortly to enable refurbishment works to be carried out.

Signs have been added to warn the public of the closure which will see new floors laid in the male and female toilets and also see new fittings and improvements made to the ladies toilet including new wash basins, toilets and warm air hand dryers.

Mayor of Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson, said: “The public toilets by the bus station are well-used by visitors to the town and by local residents, and that is why we are prioritising their refurbishment.

“We are pressing forward with plans for the redevelopment of the bus station area, and in the meantime we are doing all we can to improve the public facilities there. These refurbishment works follow the £67,000 improvement programme in the bus station itself we delivered in partnership with Stagecoach.

“At a time when other local authorities are closing their public toilets here in Bedford we are investing to improve ours and make sure they are up to the standards rightly expected by local residents.

“Many residents have approached us asking for improvements to these toilets, and I hope people will understand that the toilets will have to be closed for this short period to allow the refurbishment works to be carried out.”

Other public toilets in the town centre will remain open during this time.
