* Taxi pick-up point will be relocated from the forecourt of Victoria
National Rail Station
* Taxi marshals will be used for the first few days to control taxi
Taxi drivers and passengers are being advised by Transport for London (TfL) that
from 18 October 2011 the taxi rank in front of Victoria Station will be
temporarily closed for four weeks. The taxi rank will be relocated to Wilton
Road opposite the Apollo Theatre.
The relocation is necessary to facilitate sewer works which are taking place as
part of the Victoria Station Upgrade.
While the rank operates from Wilton Road taxi marshals will be used for the
first few days to control taxi ranking and pick-up provision within Wilton Road.
Pedestrian marshals will also be used for the first five days to direct
passengers to the relocated taxi pick-up point.
Once the Victoria Station Upgrade work is completed there will be a brand new
ticket hall, doubling in size the existing southern ticket hall, nine new
escalators and step-free access with seven new lifts.
The station redevelopment and the upgrade of the Victoria line will result in quicker, easier, and less
congested journeys for thousands of Londoners.
