Three new unisex automated toilets will soon replace the two existing public toilets on the ground floor of the Lambton Interchange.

Wellington City Council has partnered with Greater Wellington Regional Council for this upgrade, which includes the addition of an accessible toilet and will cater for the increasing volume of commuters. The ‘hands-free’ facilities will also improve public safety, hygiene and accessibility.

The toilets are a flat-pack, ready-to-assemble public toilet kit tailored to fit the available space so construction time is significantly reduced, and inconvenience, noise and disruption is minimised.

Auto-door features and sensor technology mean the toilets will be hands-free for soap, water and flushing, providing a healthier experience for all. The upgrade includes the addition of a new accessible toilet.

Construction will take approximately six weeks and disruption is expected to be minimal but some noisy work is necessary. Other public toilets are available nearby at the train station, next to the ticket office.

When: Early March to mid-April 2021
