The vital Cardiff Central Station Taxi Rank WILL be reinstated back in its original spot after concerns from the taxi trade were listened to.

Welsh taxi drivers were angry at new proposals to move the key taxi rank located outside Cardiff Central Station to a less accessible and visible spot further away.

The Cardiff Central Railway Station rank has provided an essential service to the public for over forty years. Transport for Wales Rail Ltd and Stakeholders have recently proposed a complete relocation of this rank with what Unite Union say is ‘inadequate consultation’ on the impact to transport users and drivers.

A Unite Wales spokesperson said: “Following constructive dialogue with Transport for Wales and Cardiff City Council, the Cardiff Central Taxi Rank WILL be reintroduced after works are done in Saunders Road.

“Adequate temporary ranks will be introduced in Penarth Road during this time.

“Well done to our members. Big result!”

In July taxi representatives released a short video where members of the public are shown giving their support for the taxi rank to remain in an easily accessible and visible position.

A Unite Wales spokesperson said: “The general public are fully supportive of our campaign against the relocation of the Cardiff Central Railway Station taxi rank.”
