The contractor responsible for building the new public convenience has undertaken preliminary site set-up works located on the Wilton Road car park.

They have reviewed the design and position of perimeter safety fencing required to build the new facility and have concluded that they are unable to safely develop the site, located behind and to the side of the Wilton Road bus stop, without closing the taxi rank located behind the bed.

Arrangements have been made to move the site compound from its present location on the Wilton Road car park to the taxi rank, freeing up the current compound position. This area will serve as a temporary taxi rank, as shown on the graphic.

This is a temporary measure which will last the duration of the works, due to complete late November or early December. Signage will be attached to the site fencing, directing customers to the temporary taxi rank.

The Council appreciates that this is not an ideal situation, it does however, present a pragmatic short term solution.
