New conveniences for Bradford Interchange

3 August 2018

A six-week, £120,000 refurbishment of the public toilets at Bradford Interchange starts on Monday 6 August.

While this work, which will bring the facilities up to the modern standards that passengers expect, is being carried out on the ladies and gents toilets, the accessible toilet will remain open. The accessible toilet will then be upgraded at the end of the project, once the ladies and gents have re-opened.

Notices

Notices have been posted telling Interchange passengers about alternative nearby facilities.

To help ensure the new facilities can be maintained to the high standards of cleanliness and maintenance passengers expect, a 20p charge will be introduced when the toilets re-open. The turnstiles accept 5p, 10p and 20p coins and no change is given. The accessible toilet will remain free of charge.

Neale Wallace, Head of Transport Operations for West Yorkshire Combined Authority, which manages the county’s Metro bus stations said: “Work is underway to refurbish the public toilets at Bradford Interchange in the way we have done at our Castleford, Leeds and Huddersfield bus stations.

“To help ensure they can be maintained to the high standards our customers expect, a 20p charge to use the toilets will be introduced when they re-open, which is again in line with Castleford, Leeds and Huddersfield bus stations. Research has shown and our experience has borne out that introducing a small charge also helps deter antisocial behaviour and vandalism.

“The income generated will be used to ensure the facilities are maintained to a high standard.”

“We apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused by this necessary work but are confident that passengers will appreciate the improvements they will bring about when complete.”
