The Tripunithura Railway Station may soon be able to boast of e-toilets, the first in the district. The e-toilets will be constructed using the funds of P Rajeev MP.
“Many such toilets have been installed at various schools in the district. A part of the fund will be set aside for an e-toilet at the railway station,” P Rajeev said.
He was speaking to reporters during his visit to the Tripunithura Railway station along with Divisional Railway Manager (DRM) Rajesh Agarwal on Saturday.
A proposal to start ‘she-toilet, exclusively for women, has also been mooted. The she-toilet facility will consist of a sanitary-napkin vending machine and an incinerator for destroying the used napkins.
The decision to set up the high-technology e-toilet will be a relief to the passengers at Tripunithura which lacks proper toilet facility at the station.
