Perth's pop-up urinal

Lying dormant under Perth’s entertainment precinct by day, the nation’s first retractable public toilet is designed to hydraulically lift into action by night.

The Uri-Lift was installed in the nightlife hotspot of Northbridge, providing revellers with an innovative alternative to public urination on weekends.

The self-cleaning, stainless steel urinal is connected directly to the city’s sewerage system, and uses significantly less water than traditional public toilets, according to City of Perth Lord Mayor Lisa Scaffidi.

“We know there is a demand for more public toilets and the Uri-Lift is a solution that does not compromise the aesthetics of its surrounding public spaces,” Ms Scaffidi said.

    I for one can't wait until the first drunken bogan gets stuck in here – where was this type of solution when Brendan Fevola was on the prowl 🙂

    Meanwhile, the remaining 50% of the population are trained and hold it in, since they can't even use these.

      I take it you are referring to that 50% of the population that is too fat to fit in the cubicle!

    Can't wait for these in Darwin. The first time someone falls asleep on top of it and is lifted into the air as the toilet rises from the ground, the drunk who can't get out and ends up spending the day there, what you will find when you open the door. We'll see some great stuff on Territory Cops! And it's okay Alice – we females are far better trained than the guys.
