Upcoming Event and Road Closures

You can find information about major public events and works in London that involve road closures and could therefore disrupt traffic on the TfL website. Live traffic news and disruptions taking place on London's major roads can also be found on the TfL website.

Upcoming events include: 

   Friday 17 May – Sunday 20 May 2013: Due to works outside Marble Arch Station eastbound vehicles wishing to access Oxford Street  will be diverted down Park Lane, Upper Brook street, Park Street and then back on to Oxford Street.

   Between 22:00 and 05:30 on Tuesday 21 May, Thursday 23 May and Tuesday 4 June Orchard Street to Oxford Circus will be closed because of Crossrail works.

   Friday 28 June 2013, The City of London Festival’s Children’s Parade takes place between 12.45-13.30. Roads closed to allow the parade to take place are Gresham Street, Old Jewry, Poultry, Cheapside, Newgate Street, Warwick Lane, Ave Maria Lane and Paternoster Square. The road closures will be between 12:00 and 14:00. 

   Saturday 3 August – Sunday 4 August 2013, RideLondon FreeCycle, Grand Prix, London to Surrey 100 and the London to Surrey Classic events all take place

Chelsea Flower Show
The Kipper season traditionally ends next week with the start of the Chelsea Flower Show, taking place between Tuesday 21 May and Saturday 25 May 2013 and as in previous years a taxi rank will operate during the event.
The taxi rank will be in two portions:
    1st portion is for 5 spaces and is in the bullring/entrance of the flower show 
    2nd portion is for 4 taxis and is on Chelsea Embankment, in the suspended bus stop
Drivers are warned by TfL not park or rank on the zig-zag lines when using the ranks.
Unsurprisingly, no warning has been issued to private hire from TfL or LTPH not to illegally rank, ply for hire or tout.


WHAT WILL THE AUTHORITIES DO ABOUT THE LINES OF RICKSHAWS THAT WILL PARK AND ILLEGALLY PLY FOR HIRE THE LENGTH OF CHELSEA BRIDGE ROAD?
In a single word....nothing!

Grosvenor House last night (CBI Dinner), Addison Lee all over the Rank, no enforcement and as ever the camera turned the other way.

No good TfL bullshitting and saying 'we will talk to the hotel' (again!).

The rank is on a Red Route and its TfL's to enforce so just get on with it.

We all speculate as to why the camera turns round, is it Hendy's orders? After all did not the benighted one once say| 'when you come out of the Grosvenor House, you can't get a cab as they have all taken their money and gone home at 9' .

Well Pete you have had plenty of our money, how about something to show for it?
