How long will the ranks be affected by the works?

These street works will be taking place over a 5 week period, starting on Monday 11th April 2022.  

What alternative arrangements have been made for Taxi’s?

Alternative arrangements have been made for  a Temporary Taxi Rank located on Trinity Street, between 10.00hrs and 18:00hrs. 

During the above period the traffic flow on Trinity Street is being reversed, so access to the Temporary Trinity Street Taxi rank will now be via Queens Street.  In light of the above there will be “strictly” no vehicle access to Trinity Street from St Nicholas Street between 10:00hrs and 18:00hrs Monday to Sunday.
