A new taxi rank is to be created at Victoria Hospital.
The rank will come into force as part of an amended Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) within the hospital site .
It will be positioned on the far side of the hospital turning circle, right outside the entrance to Accident and Emergency, making it easy to get to for patients and visitors.
Ian B.Smith, lead professional, Traffic Management, explained thatFife Council staff had worked in conjunction with partners at NHS Fife to find the best location for the rank, which will be able to accommodate around three to four cars.
The amended TRO will also create ‘ambulance’ and ‘doctor’ parking areas, and additional ambulance and disabled bays installed close to the hospital reception.
A ‘No Waiting At Any Time’ restriction will also be put on the main service route throughout the hospital site to allow efficient access.
