Cabbies not happy with station plans

The recently annouced forecourt changes to Surbiton station have met with opposition by it's most frequent users, the taxi drivers.

The changes planned for the front and rear entrance roadways are intended to improve accessability, but the cabbies aren't happy with the £150,000 scheme as it will reduce the space available for parking their taxis. The current allocation of 30 places is to be replaced with just 22.

The Licensed Taxi Drivers' Association have lodged an objection to Transport for London and Kingston Council asking for alternative parking to be considered by the Surbiton neighbourhood commitee at their meeting in mid December.
