TfLTPH Notice 04/17
01 February 2017
A new 5,000 person capacity venue called The Printworks is opening on Surrey Quays Road in Southwark on 4 February. Transport for London (TfL) has worked with the event organisers to ensure that there are designated taxi and private hire areas available at the venue.
Below are details of the taxi and private hire arrangements that will be in place at the venue on event days:
Taxis During events there will be a designated taxi drop-off area and marshalled taxi rank at the venue. Drivers licensed for Lewisham, as well as All London taxi drivers, will be permitted to use the taxi rank in order to ensure a sufficient supply of taxis for customers.
- Lewisham taxi drivers must only pick up passengers at the taxi rank and are not permitted to ply for hire in the area around the venue and outside of their licence area.
- Private hire There will be a designated private hire drop-off area and marshalled prebooked private hire pick-up area at the venue. The marshals will be checking the booking details and ensuring that passengers use the private hire vehicle (PHV) they have booked.
- TfL’s Compliance Team will also be in attendance during events.
- Taxi and private hire areas will be accessible from Surrey Quays Road.
