This is a new thing, but it could be for any number of reasons. When I visited for MAP day there was a birds nest on of the 'leg' nearest the toilets, which could be preventing it from opening. Or it could be a technical issue, or a staffing issue or something completely different. Until TP decide to tell us, we won't know for sure. However, just looking at Twitter and they are saying its for maintenance.
