"Third bathroom" will appear in Wanjiali Middle Road
How to avoid the embarrassment when a daughter holds her old father and leads him to the washroom or a father takes his young daughter to the bathroom? It is known on August 10 that Changsha will build five demonstration public bathrooms, one of which in Wanjiali Middle Road in Furong District will add "the third bathroom". At present, the public bathroom is under construction in accordance with the five-star standard, which is estimated to be open to the public in October.
“It is not convenient to take the daughter to the men’s room even though she has not learned to go to the toilet alone,” said Mr. He, who is a novice father and lives in Yuanda Road. The problem that he faced was also confronted by lots of people. Thus, the "third bathroom" quietly appears in many cities in order to meet the needs of families going out with members of different genders, one of whom cannot go to bathroom alone.
Yu Hui, director of infrastructure construction division of Environmental Sanitation Bureau in Furong District, said that "third bathroom" is introduced to protect privacy. It is designed for those people who cannot go to toilet alone, who need to be accompanied by the family member to the bathroom as well as for the disabled. For instance, the daughter takes the old father or the mother takes her little boy to the bathroom. In addition, some people with disabilities also need special restroom.
According to introduction, the renovating "third bathroom" will specifically set up little urinals, sanitary fit for the children. Besides, the foldable children’s seat and baby-care desk will be established to help parents to change diapers for their children. What is more, the bathroom is equipped with hand railings on the wall for the disabled people. In addition, the bathroom will also set up some humanized facilities such as beeper and luggage racks.
Reporters learned that Changsha will build five demonstration public toilets in the crowded zone in the urban area this year. The relevant person in charge of Changsha Municipal Urban Management Bureau introduced that Changsha will improve the quality for 50 old station toilets, and will build 18 sets of new station toilets within two years.
