As queues and car park chaos continues at Cambridge Station Daniel Zeichner MP said:

“Everyone understands that during a major construction project there will be inconvenience – but the problems we have seen in recent weeks have been unacceptable. I met Greater Anglia representatives last week and told them about the problems that people have reported to me and what I have seen myself, and made it clear that this is unacceptable. The car-parking and cycle-parking situation has been poor for months, with no clear system for people to be dropped off or for short-term parking.

Daniel Zeichner MP has met Cambridge cabbies who say they are being ignored by the county council over their claims a hi-tech rank signal system does not work.

Back in 2013 a new system was installed so that taxis could wait on the "feeder" rank in Drummer Street and then a sign would alert them when a space became available on the main St Andrew’s Street rank.

The system is similar to that used to show drivers when there are free spaces in car parks.

However angry cabbies say the sign on Drummer Street has never worked properly often leaving scores of cabbies on Drummer Street while the St Andrew’s Street rank is empty. Taxi driver Rashel Mohammed, a member of the Cambridge Hackney Carriage Association says he and his colleagues are forced to phone each other up rather than rely on the “dodgy” sign which cost tax payers £30,000.
