The City of Melbourne is proposing to install a new public toilet on Faraday Street. This will replace the underground toilet decommissioned on the street in 2016.

The underground toilet created an unsafe environment and was not accessible for people with a disability, which led to a Council decision to decommission it.

As there are no other public toilets nearby, a new public toilet is required to service the area.

We have identified four potential locations along Faraday Street for the installation of this public toilet and asked the community for their feedback from 29 May to 13 July 2020.

Learn more about the project and the four proposed locations in the concept proposal below.
