TfL Station Works Update.


King’s Cross/St Pancras Road

There are ongoing works to improve King’s Cross Station and as a result of this there have been some changes in the area and at certain times there will be some unavoidable disruptions.

Drivers should avoid waiting or stopping in areas that will cause delays to other road users and are reminded that the drop off and pick up bays on the western side of Pancras Road have a maximum time limit of 5 minutes. This time limit is being enforced and private hire and taxi drivers who stop for longer than 5 minutes will be issued with a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN).

The works programme for Pancras Road is:

· The southbound closure will remain in place from now until the end of March 2012 whilst new gas main infrastructure is being placed in the ground

· The current northbound closure at the top end of Pancras Road will be in place until the end of October whilst the valves are attached to the gas mains and the connections are made to the new controller

· The same northbound closure will be required again from the beginning of January 2012 until the middle of March 2012 to complete the change over from the old gas controller to the new one

London Bridge

The taxi lane under the viaduct, at the entrance to the station, is currently closed whilst work in this area is carried out. Taxi ranks spaces have been marked out next to the taxi lane and should be used whilst this work is ongoing.

Victoria Station Upgrade Works

As part of the ongoing Victoria Station Upgrade works there will be some changes to the taxi ranks serving the station.
From Saturday 1 October 2011 the front of the feeder rank in Wilton Road will be reduced by 7 spaces but the taxi rank in Neathouse Place will be reinstated to compensate for this.

Information about the ongoing works can be found on the TfL website.
Every effort is made to keep disruption to a minimum during all of these works and your patience is appreciated.
