Copenhagen has a public toilet coverage that is ten times as good as Oslo, a new Aftenposten survey of public toilets in selected northern European capitals shows.
Measured per square kilometer, Oslo has a coverage of 0.17 toilets. The figure for Copenhagen is 1.7. Helsinki, Stockholm, and Berlin also come out better than Oslo in the survey.
“There is no doubt that there is a need for more toilets in many places, especially in the downtown area, by the beaches, and in parks,” Sirin Stav (MDG), City Councilor for the Environment and Transport, wrote in an email to Aftenposten.
At the same time, she pointed out that several toilets are not included in the overview – and that the offer has improved in recent years, for example, on the islands and in the city.
The Norwegian Environment Agency has also set up several portable toilets this year.
