One of the more active night ranks at the former site of the Dover Street Wine Bar—soon to be the new Novikov restaurant—was recently taken out of commission by an official TfL suspension order, while building work takes place.
Drivers noticed that NO work was taking place from 6pm until 8am.
An active member of the Mayfair Mob Team, contacted TfL and was put in contact with the new person dealing with Ranks and Highways. The case was put forward that as no work was being carried out in the evening, the rank was lying idol when in fact it could still be used to a satisfactory degree, which would not inconvenience any work being carried out in the day time period.
After reflection, TfL has now lifted the suspension between the night time hours of 18:00 till 08:00 and a new notice has been pasted ove the previous one.
So, don't be put off by the signage, you can now officially use the rank to service the busy Arts Club from tea time till breakfast.
Our thanks go out to Mayfair Mob member @raywhu for his dedication and unpaid time he has freely given on this issue.
Well done Ray.
