Ladies needing to spend a penny while waiting for their bus in Preston are going to need to use temporary toilets.


Lancashire County Council has announced it is closing the ladies loos at Preston Bus Station from Monday (17 July).

It’s part of major redevelopment work within the grade-II listed bus station.

Toilet facilities are being renovated and need to be closed off until October.

Alternative toilets are being made available opposite stand 137 at the north end of the Bus Station. Plans are currently being put in place for additional temporary toilets.

Manager of the Bus Station Linzi King said: “This work is part of the overall redevelopment of the bus station and includes renovations on the building itself, which is why this will take some time.

“Alternative toilets will be made available for the public, but unfortunately this initial temporary arrangement may not be suitable for everyone, as these toilets are accessed using stairs. Alternative public toilet facilities can be found at the indoor market.

“We’re sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause while this important work is carried out.”
