TOILETS at a town centre bus station are due to reopen after months of works to build unisex cubicles. 

Public toilets at Eastleigh Bus Station on Upper Leigh Road closed in March when works began.

Former councillor Tina Campbell, who represented the Eastleigh Central ward at the time, said they were in a "sorry state for a long time".

Now, Eastleigh Borough Council says they will reopen on Monday July 11. 

The refurbishment saw the old facilities replaced with four self-contained cubicles, two of which are accessible for people with disabilities and parents with push chairs.

All four cubicles have also been fitted with baby changing beds, nappy disposal and sharks disposal chutes. 

Speaking as the works come to an end, Chair of Eastleigh Local Area Committee Cllr Alex Bourne said: “I’m delighted that the refurbishment of the bus station toilets is nearing completion and that they will soon be reopened for local people and visitors to the town to use.” 

During the works there has been no access to the toilets at the bus station and instead people have been asked to use other sites including Eastleigh House, The Point, Mitchell Road Car Park, Poppins and Wetherspoons.
