Marlborough District Council says their toilet upgrades are on a roll after a number of the district’s dunnies have had a spruce up over the last six months.
The chain was pulled on aged restrooms last year, in fact; one of Marlborough’s oldest in Seymour Square was also upgraded.
Work on the new high capacity and fully accessible toilet complex is set to be completed in a few more weeks.
Council Parks and Open Spaces Officer Grahame Smail says the toilet block was fifty years old and come at a cost to maintain.
“The new building will also provide a storage area for the special equipment used to maintain the memorial fountain and other aspects of the Seymour Square premier park space,” Officer Smail said.
“These new facilities are a big improvement for our visitors and locals both aesthetically and in terms of accessibility for everyone.”
The toilet upgrades are mostly co-funded by the Marlborough District Council and the Government’s Tourism Infrastructure Fund.
