If you have ever been to Amsterdam you may have noticed the old green metal urinal cubicles at intervals along the canals. A new type of urinal has just been tested which pops out of the ground at night-time when required. It is grey in colour and has 3 urinals around it. In tests in Holland it was very successful, and all the men approved. The women approved as well as the Police and local residents as the streets are kept cleaner. However the women wondered when a version for them would arrive? These super pop-up urinals are due to be tried in the UK later this year, in Reading first of all.
