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 was required to service the area.

We asked the community for their feedback on four possible toilet locations from 29 May to 13 July 2020.

Installation of the new toilet will begin in May 2023.
