WORK will begin next week on a new taxi rank at the car park next to Boots/Tesco town centre.

The rank will have around 14 spaces and will stretch along the side of the Boots building and around the corner into the Abbey car park. It will be ready by the time The Mall work begins in May.

Briefing the press on the town centre work on Monday, Kerry County Council Senior Engineer, Eamon Scanlan, detailed where the new ranks would be situated with the works due to take place in The Mall this May.

There will be a nightly rank on Edward Street for about six cars opposite the post office. When work is completed there will also be a nightly rank on The Mall for a limited number of taxis, on the loading bays. The rank at Bridge Lane (near Shaws) remains.

Mr Scanlan said the Council met with the taxi drivers to decide upon the best place to position the ranks.
