A new multi-million pound railway station was built without any toilets, it has emerged.
The station was built without toilets
The Edinburgh Park Railway Station, which cost £4.5m, has no conveniences for either passengers or staff.
The Scottish Executive said it was an Edinburgh Council matter, which said ScotRail was dealing with it, but ScotRail had no definitive answer.
The station was opened on Monday by First Minister Jack McConnell and will
serve an estimated 5,000 people daily.
The Scottish National Party's transport spokesman Kenny MacAskill said he was amazed the station could have been opened without public toilets.
Mr MacAskill said: "It's downright daft in the 21st century to spend £4.5m on a station but fail to build in toilets for passengers, let alone staff, especially when this station is both badly needed and will be so heavily used.
"Passengers and staff are entitled to expect decent facilities and that must
include toilet provision.
"The new station is very welcome but it must be welcoming in the provision
and services it provides."
