Lomdon Bridge & Waterloo Staions Over Ranking Problems

Email just received from LT&PH

London Bridge

As part of the ongoing works at London Bridge Station the taxi lane will be suspended between 01:00 to 05:00 this coming morning (Thursday 14 April 2011). Taxis should use bus stop E instead.

Following reports of over-ranking by taxis at London Bridge Station and obstructions being caused to bus services all taxi drivers are reminded that they must not over-rank or cause any obstructions at the station and its approaches. Enforcement in this area is going to be increased and any driver found over-ranking will be reported to London Taxi and Private Hire. If the taxi rank is full drivers should not stop and should consider looking for work in other locations.

Waterloo Station

Concerns have been raised about taxis obstructing emergency access routes, junctions, bus stops and bus lanes in this area. While waiting on the rank, please make sure that you do not block any of these locations. If the rank is full, take care not to obstruct the highway and consider looking for work in other locations.

Enforcement in this area is going to be increased to ensure that the important emergency routes and highway facilities are kept clear.
