We must pro­vide these fa­cil­i­ties

Glamorgan Gazette - - News -

RE­CENTLY I dis­cov­ered the pub­lic toi­lets in Maesteg Bus Sta­tion are closed each week­day at 2pm, which seems to have been the case for some time.

I be­lieve Brid­gend County Bor­ough Coun­cil (BCBC) are re­spon­si­ble for this de­ci­sion.

Surely, un­der such cir­cum­stances, coun­cil meet­ings after 2pm should have no toi­let fa­cil­i­ties to en­sure coun­cil­lors are treated like every­one else - with con­tempt!

Also, I am in­formed that Brid­gend Bus Sta­tion will be closed each day at 8.15pm, which means peo­ple have to wait out­side in poor light­ing, lack of su­per­vi­sion and lower safety lev­els for trav­ellers.

If we wish to live in a safe com­mu­nity we must pro­vide the nec­es­sary fa­cil­i­ties and safety mea­sures.

What is our com­mu­nity com­ing to if we can­not pro­vide de­cent, safe en­vi­ron­ments for all? Steve Jones Garth, Maesteg

Brid­gend coun­cil said: “The toi­lets at Maesteg bus sta­tion are tem­po­rar­ily clos­ing at around 3.30pm while a mem­ber of staff re­cov­ers from a re­cent ac­ci­dent, but will re­turn to nor­mal as soon as pos­si­ble. As re­gards Brid­gend Bus Sta­tion, the build­ing closes at 8pm when com­mer­cial ser­vices stop run­ning, but the bays re­main ac­ces­si­ble.”
