Proposal to change to taxi arrangements opposite the Tanyard

The council is considering experimental changes to allow taxis at certain times to use the service road outside the Three Horse Shoes pub and the bus stop outside the Olive Lounge following representations from both the police and taxi drivers.

The proposal would mean introducing hackney carriage stands as shown in the image above (click the image for a larger version):

– A taxi stand operating 10pm to 4am will be created on the Bawtry Road Service Road (outside the Three Horse Shoes)

The existing bus stop outside the Olive Lounge will be used solely by buses between 4am and 10pm, however:-

– The bay will be shared with 2 hackney carriage taxis that will be permitted to stand here between 10pm and 4am with buses still utilising the rest of the bay.

– From midnight to 4am the remainder of the bus stop lay by will be available to be used by hackney carriage taxis.

The proposal is to trial these arrangements for 18 months to evaluate their effectiveness in managing traffic in the area.

Please contact us if you have comments or concerns about the proposal.
