What’s going on here? New public washroom at Westwood Square Terminal
Washroom scheduled to open in fall 2019
by Steve Cornwell Mississauga News
The Westwood Square Transit Terminal is under construction as it gets a new accessible public washroom, scheduled to open in the fall of 2019.
JUST THE FACTS
The terminal is accessible 24-hours a day, seven days a week and serves more than 9,000 passengers during a typical weekday, making it one of Mississauga’s busiest transit hubs
In additional to MiWay buses, the terminal has connections to Brampton Transit and the TTC, which provides service to Humber College and Etobicoke General Hospital.
The washroom unit was pre-fabricated and brought on the site July 31.
Project work, which includes sanitary, water and power infrastructure connections, concrete paving, installing sidewalks and heated shelters is slated to cost around $1 million, according to Mississauga city staff.
The washroom was approved as part of the 2018 budget and was funded with money from the gas tax as part of the capital construction and improvement program.
In 2018, Mississauga’s gross total capital budget was over a $164 million.
