Charing Cross Road Marshalled Taxi Rank

18/10/2011

A new taxi rank has been appointed in Charing Cross Road.
 
The taxi rank operates between 20:00 and 03:00, 7 days a week, and is split into two portions. The first portion is located on the west side of Charing Cross Road, near Bear Street. The second portion acts as a feeder rank and is on the east side of Charing Cross Road.
 
The new taxi rank will be marshalled on Friday and Saturday evenings, between 22:00 and 03:00 and will operate as a normal taxi rank, i.e. the first taxi takes the first passenger and the fares are on the meter. TfL has worked together with the taxi trade and local authority to appoint this new taxi rank and drivers are encouraged to use the rank and support the marshalled taxi rank scheme.
 
The fixed-fare marshalled taxi rank scheme in Coventry Street has now stopped as this was only being marshalled temporarily by TfL marshals whilst Westminster City Council seek long term funding for the scheme.

The Metropolitan Police have informed Transport for London (TfL) that as of 4 September 2011 SFM Security Ltd have been accredited by the police and have powers to control and direct traffic and require the name and address of people in connection with Road Traffic Accidents.
 
Staff from SFM Security Ltd will be used at events where there are agreed Traffic Management Plans in place (e.g. the St Patrick’s Day Parade), will be wearing high-visibility clothing and will have the necessary badges and accreditation displayed.
 
The badges will be credit card sized and similar to those worn by Security Industry Authority (SIA) accredited staff.
