Taxi Marshalls during the festive period

Taxi Marshals will be on hand during the festive period, making sure residents and visitors have a safe journey home from Sale and Altrincham.

The marshals, funded by the Safer Trafford Partnership, have been in operation in the run up to Christmas and New Year for the last 10 years.

They will offer their safe and friendly service this year at Sale Metrolink and Sale Waterside Plaza ranks, and the main rank at Altrincham Bus Station on some of the busiest nights of the festive period: Friday 20 December – Tuesday 24 December inclusive, and on  31 December – 1 January 2020, from 10.30pm until 3.30am on each date.

The Taxi Marshals will help ease traffic congestion by helping to reduce queue jumping, and keeping nuisance behaviour under control.

A Council spokesperson said:

“We’re pleased to be able to help provide the marshalling again this year. In previous years the scheme has been well received by licensees, the police, taxi drivers and people using the facility to get home safely.”
