People have questioned my sanity in claiming there is one single urinal only in the new $ 1.3 million facilities at Leighton Beach, that also include a new kiosk/cafe.
Very functional design to get men out fast, so you can wash your hands while having a wee.
So I went back again, double checked again and took this photo to show I haven’t gone all senile yet.
I went to have a look at the new $ 1,3 million facilities at Leighton Beach this morning, that were opened by Premier Colin Barnett a few days ago, and I am speechless.
The toilet and shower block is large and approximately 45 x 7 metres big, and half of that, approximately 150 square metres of it are the male toilets and showers. There are plenty of showers but there is only a single urinal and only two ‘fully-accessible’ toilets, and the urinal is next to the handbasin. I went back twice to see if I had overlooked the entry to a row of urinals but that was not the case.
According to Mayor Brad Pettitt Leighton Beach is one of the most popular beaches in Perth, but if men and boys need to urinate they will just have to do it in the Indian Ocean or queue up at the one and only urinal. What a waste of money!
