LONDON RANKS UPDATE

11/05/2012

Bromley Town Centre – Diamond Jubilee Event Tuesday 15 May 2012
 
To mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee a special Jubilee event will be taking place in Bromley Town Centre on Tuesday 15 May 2012. There will be a number of road closures in place during the event and the following taxi ranks will not be accessible between 08:00 and 20:00 during the event:
 
·         East Street – rank no. 5328
·         High Street (TK Maxx) – rank no. 5529
·         Bromley South Station – rank no. 5474
 
Between 08:00 and 20:00 an temporary taxi rank will be in operation in Palace View, off Elmfield Road, Bromley.

More London

Essential gas works are needed along Tooley Street and Traffic Management involves suspending the taxi rank at More London.

TfL have looked at variations to try and keep the rank open but their Forward Planning team are unhappy with this because of safety reasons.

TfL have therefore come to the following arrangements;

– From 14 May 2012 to the end of June, the More London taxi rank will be suspended.

– A temporary taxi rank will be put into place using the residents permit parking bays behind the current taxi rank (on the east side of the traffic lights).
The residents permit parking bays will be suspended and the contractors will put up signs to inform taxi drivers (at both the suspended and temporary rank).

– The temporary taxi rank will be for four spaces and will still have sight lines to More London.

– TfL is also trying to get the motorcycle bays suspended (that are directly behind the traffic lights) which would become the point of the rank.

Kings Cross

Taxis should set down passengers for King’s Cross Station at the new set down facility on Pancras Road, which is directly outside the new entrance to the station. The old entrance to the station at York Way is now closed for arrivals and is exit only, so passengers should not be set down on York Way.

Morden Station

Everything is going through with the duel use taxi rank at Morden Station.
TfL now have authorisation from the Department for Transport for the appropriate signage and the rank should be in use by the end of May.
