THE BRIHANMUMBAI Municipal Corporation is set to build toilets with several modern amenities in Goregaon, along the Western Express Highway. The civic body has proposed the construction of a 1,453 feet block comprising 5 toilets each, for women and men, and one for the disabled, for the ease of commuters on the highway.
Slated to be built near Goregaon’s Virvani Industrial Estate, a wall mounting sanitary napkin dispensing machine too will be installed in the women’s washroom. Apart from this, the toilet will be equipped with separate rooms to breast-feed babies, a water station, phone charging sockets, CCTV cameras and ATM machines. BMC’s solid waste management will carry out daily upkeep of the facility. The civic body also has ambitious plans of serving beverages within the block. A solar panel generating 20 kilowatts of electricity will be lodged on the toilet roof to save electricity costs, as per BMC officials. The civic body has also floated the idea of planting flowering trees in the toilet’s vicinity.
