Taxi drivers in a rage

Taxi operators in The City are crying out against a proposal to move them from Heroes Square and Lower Broad Street to the Wharf car park.
The main concern is the possible displacement of hundreds of operators as president of the Heroes Square Taxi Association, Mark Layne, said the proposal stated there were 117 spots available and no one outside that number would be allowed to park.
Other concerns ranged from personal safety to a lack of customers.
“I feel it is bare foolishness. Here, we are where the people are passing, but where they putting us, the people not passing. They say they want to beautify here, but they could still do that and leave us here, even if we have to donate a dollar,” said David Medford, who operates in Heroes Square.
