Spending a penny
We’ve all had a moan at having to pay for the privilege of having a wee at train stations, but consider this: Network Rail made £4.8 million in 2016/17 charging people to use toilet facilities, including £900,000 from London’s Victoria station alone.
The operator says the installation of barriers helps to prevent potential overcrowding and “deter any illegal activity”.
It charges between 30p and 50p for the use of station toilets, although some major stations have now removed charges, including Victoria and Birmingham New Street.
The Campaign for Better Transport said: “Network Rail must ensure the money made from toilet charges is reinvested in ensuring clean, accessible toilets are available.”
