In London, the night tube is keeping many lines open for 24 hours of the day, allowing commuters to avoid long journeys home on the night bus. But what does this rise in all-night transportation mean for the world of washrooms?
National newspaper the Independent has reported that the 24-hour tube service is ballooning prices for any properties on the Central and Victoria lines. Online estate agents eMoov looked at property values in each respective area and found an average three per cent increase in the value of each property.
But while the increase in house values is the upside to better travelling options, the influx of drunken revellers leaving a station and needing to relieve themselves will become a problem.
Public toilets in London
The problem of public toilet facilities is yet to be addressed by local councils, however they’ll inevitably have to increase investment in toilets to avoid a public health crisis on London’s streets.
What’s more, (according to the City of London’s official website) attended toilets close at 8pm, although automatic toilets and night-time urinals (which are stored underground during the day and rise aboveground in the night) go some way to stem the problem.
Whether this problem will be resolved is yet to be seen. Either way, we can provide high-quality washrooms in the London area – no matter what subway line you’re on.
