Wee wait as Byron visitors christen automatic toilets

PRESSING issues caused runners from the Byron Bay Lighthouse Run to queue up for the new automatic toilets on the weekend.

However, there was somewhat of a 'wee' wait for many of them which didn't go unnoticed on social media.

Stuart Watson posted on the Voice of Byron Facebook page lamenting the slow lines for many visiting runners.

"No , they're not selling tickets to a Led Zeplin (sic) concert, just some Byron Bay Lighthouse runners trying to relieve some bladder pressure in the new Auto Dunnies," he posted with accompanying photo.

The line of customers for the Byron Bay toilets is always a long one.

He wasn't alone in hosing down the new facilities as others agreed.

"All the locals laughed when the announcer suggested runners use the new-fangled toilets," David Michie posted.

Installed at the end of last year Byron Shire Council was flushed with the good news of the unisex Exeloos located near the old toilet block which are fully self-contained and self-cleaning.

And they are definitely popular as if you ask most locals they will say there is always a line waiting to use them.

"imagine the line during Schoolies in a few weeks time," Nacqui Yadzi posted.
