Bathroom specialist Closomat has completed the installation of two new Changing Places assisted accessible toilets at two motorway services, meaning there are now more than 30 such facilities on the UK’s arterial roads.
The facilities have been installed for motorway service station operator, Moto, at Medway and Leigh Delamere.
Only the UK airport network has a more complete range of Changing Places in the country, making service station operators some of the most inclusive groups in the transport sector.
Changing Places toilet provision is considered best practice in venues open to the public under current Standards.
Claire Haymes, Closomat’s Changing Places project co-ordinator, said: “We know that people who need Changing Places toilets make a point of going to venues that accommodate them.
“Services that have installed them have reported an obvious increase in visitors, and multiple daily usage of the facility.
“These latest Changing Places we have installed contribute towards the relief- for the tens of thousands of people who need Changing Places- of knowing that, when they’re travelling on the motorway at least, they will be able to enjoy a comfort break in an appropriate environment, and they now have a greater choice as to where they break their journey.”
