Because of the carnage created in Midland Road by Camden Council, we believe it's time TfL and Eurostar stepped in and moved Euro Star ranking facilities round to Pancras Road.
Reports on social media over the weekend said it was taking over £11 on the clock (from picking up on St Pancras rank) to finally exiting onto Euston Road.....this is disgraceful. Videos were circulating of emergency vehicles stuck in the gridlock. We just hope that lives haven't been lost as yet.
How long before passengers stop using taxis from the St Pancras rank altogether?
Perhaps this was the plan all along...passengers forced onto the underground...Is Khan trying to fill the £1 billion deficit by taking passengers away from the Taxi trade and forcing them onto the Tube?
Immediate Action Needed : Where's The Joint Ranks Committee On This?
We need TfL and Camden to move the rank at St Pancras to Pancras Road. As PH not being metered they can pick up and drop off in the carnage of Midland Road and it should affect their price (except Uber who's vehicles are all metered no matter what the court case said)
The two ranks should be adjacent on Pancras Road....Euro Star northbound and Kings Cross southbound. Traffic lights would need to be phased giving Pancras Road time to clear on each light change. At present, the lights are phased to hold back traffic from Euston Road.
We also need Goodsway reopened two way 'as soon as possible' to aid Taxis traveling away North, NorthEast and East.
There also needs to be an amendment to the road traffic order...'No Cycles'
Let them use York Way, Goodsway and Midland Road. B
asically, Pancras Road onto Camley Street is just one big cul-de-sac, so they shouldn't need to enter, except for access which they can dismount and do on foot.
Taking Taxis out of Midland Road altogether would aid the flow of traffic, cut the current congestion and help with air quality in the area. It just makes sense!
Or even more cost effective...revert back to the original road layout !
Just like adding Taxis to the Tottenham Court Road scheme, which according to Camden’s own modelling, would benefit tragic flow and air quality in surrounding streets.
Or is this not about Traffic flow, congestion and air quality?
Are the allegations about Camden's Councillors conflicting interests on the money???
Is this more to do with what Market Tec and Turney wants the council to do???
Surely councillors don't have a conflict of interest with a commercial company.....or do they???
Look who cabinet member Phil Jones has left Camden to work for !!!
The ethical standards contained in the Nolan principles, by which councillors and cabinet members are judged, need to be applied with the utmost rigour.
Not only must there 'not be a conflict of interest'...there must 'not be the appearance or perception of a conflict of interest'.
What is it they say.....Follow The Money.
