City officials in Berlin are hoping to solve the problem of lengthy female toilet queues by introducing gender-neutral urinals.
In a 99-page policy document titled “The Toilet Concept for Berlin”, the left-wing coalition governing the German capital committed itself to pissoirs – public urinals – for both men and women, reports the Daily Mail.
The paper explains: “In the future urinals which can be used by all genders should be offered.”
It was justified as an enterprise because it represented a “continuation of the [toilet] concept and an opportunity for Berlin to show that it is innovative”, according to a translation on the BBC.
Other features to be included in the German toilet of the future are a well-lit exterior, an emergency alarm, gender-neutral signs and clear visibility at the entrance.
