Beijing, April 25 (IANS) Beijing Municipality will build 100 toilets with free WiFi access this year as part of the city’s “toilet revolution” efforts.
The toilets, to be built in the districts of Tongzhou and Fangshan, will also have ATM machines and charging facilities for cellphones and electric vehicles, said Ji Yang, an official with the Beijing Municipal Commission of City Administration and Environment, told Xinhua on Monday.
Baby seats will be installed next to the toilets so that mothers can free their hands.
The estimated cost of each toilet is between 50,000 yuan ($7,685) and 100,000 yuan, Ji said.
Urinals for children and barrier-free facilities will be installed in the city’s current toilets, together with ventilation and air conditioning systems to ensure a stable temperature of at least 12 degrees Celsius in winter and no higher than 30 degrees Celsius in the summer, he said.
