Canberra CBD has kindly provided details on the usage of Canberra’s new open air pissoirs:
The urinal trial in late-night hot spots in the Canberra CBD has already proven extremely popular with the local community with 225 litres collected over the weekend.
Data showed that an estimated 1200 men had used the urinals over the four nights of the first weekend of the trial, with Saturday night attracting nearly 450 people.
CCBD’s Chief Executive Officer, Jane Easthope, said it was great to see the facilities being used.
“The first weekend of the trial has already shown that the urinals have served their purpose and we are pleased they have already made an impact,” Ms Easthope said.
“We are determined to make the city’s laneways cleaner and more usable to the general public. This trial is just one example of how we are implementing change.
They’re back this weekend and then over Easter.
