Consultation is invited on proposals to alter the existing stand for the use of hackney carriages (taxi rank) located at Charles Street, Plymouth to enable the Charles Cross Improvement Scheme.
The scheme, now nearing completion, will reduce traffic delays and improve traffic flow by increasing capacity for all vehicles whilst making crossings friendlier for pedestrians and cyclists. The project includes:
● Construction of additional traffic lanes
● Bus stop route alterations
● Installation of new traffic signals
● Street lighting and signage
Charles Street Hackney Carriage Stand is being widened to provide an additional lane southbound to improve capacity. The existing stand at Charles Street (north east side) is located outside the Plymouth College of Art. The stand is permitted for 3 vehicles and is operational for 24 hours per day. The stand will move from a point 113 metres north west of the junction with Charles Cross Roundabout for a distance of 16 metres in a north westerly direction. The stand is moving to allow for the widening of the towards Charles Cross roundabout. The stand will remain permitted for 3 vehicles and operational for 24 hours per day.
The consultation period commenced on Tuesday 5th November 2019 and submissions can be made until Wednesday 6th December 2019.
