Notice is hereby given that the Council of the London Borough of Harrow propose to make the above-mentioned Orders under sections 6, 124 and Part IV of Schedule 9 to the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, as amended by the Local Government Act 1985, and all other enabling powers. 2. The general effect of The Bus Stop Clearway Order would be further to amend The Harrow (Bus Stop Clearway) Traffic Order 1999, so that a new Bus Stop Clearway would be provided on the north side of Kymberley Road adjacent to the southern pedestrian entrance to St. George’s Shopping Centre. The Clearway would be in operation “At any time”. 3. Subject to the provisions of the Order no person shall cause any vehicle to stop on this bus stop. 4. The prohibitions referred to in paragraph 3 above would not apply in respect of a person causing: (a) a bus to stop for as long as may be required to enable passengers to board or alight, or (b) a bus being used to provide a bus service under agreement to stop for as long as may be required for operational reasons (c) to a vehicle which is prevented from proceeding by circumstances beyond the driver’s control or where it is necessary to stop to avoid injury or damage to persons or property; (d) to a vehicle being used for police, fire brigade or ambulance purposes; (e)  to a vehicle which is stationary to enable it to be used for the purposes of: (i)  any building operation, demolition or excavation; (ii) the removal of any obstruction to traffic; (iii) the maintenance, improvement or reconstruction of a road; (iv) the laying, erection, alteration, repair or cleaning on or near a bus stop or bus stand of any sewer or of any main, pipe or apparatus for the supply of gas, water or electricity, or of any telecommunication apparatus lawfully kept installed in any position, or (v) constructing, improving, maintaining and cleaning of any street furniture including bus stop infrastructure within any of the lengths of road specified in this Order, but only if the vehicle cannot be used for one of those purposes without stopping on a bus stop or bus stand; (f) to anything done with the permission of a parking attendant or at the direction of a constable in uniform or a traffic warden; or (g) to a taxi which is stopped for only as long as may be required, to enable a passenger to board or alight from the taxi. Note.   The exemption for orange/blue badge holders do not apply to Bus Stop Clearways in the London Borough of Harrow. 5. The general effect of The Prohibition of Stopping on Cab Ranks Order would be to revoke The Harrow (Prohibition of Stopping on Cab Ranks) Traffic Order 1994. This new Order has the effect allowing for changes in legislation for the Greater London Authority. Apart from removing the existing taxi rank in Kymberley Road, which would be replaced by the bus stop clearway, and providing a new rank in Clarendon Road, immediately south of the motor cycle bay, in accordance with an Order made by Transport for London, the new Order would retain all the other taxi ranks in the London Borough of Harrow. 6. No person shall cause or permit any vehicle other than a hackney carriage to stop on the cab rank. 7. The prohibition referred to in paragraph 6 to this notice would not apply: (a) to any vehicle being used for ambulance, fire-brigade or police purposes in an emergency; (b) to anything done at the direction of a police constable in uniform or with the permission of any person authorised by the Council; (c) in any case where the person in control of the vehicle is required by law to stop, or is obliged to do so in order to avoid an accident. 8. A copy of the proposed Orders, The Harrow (Bus Stop Clearway) Traffic Order 1999 (and of the Orders which have previously amended that Order), The Harrow (Prohibition of Stopping on Cab Ranks) Traffic Order 1994 and of the Council’s statement of reasons for proposing to make the Orders can be inspected, during normal office hours on Mondays to Fridays inclusive, until 1st February 2001, the expiration of a period of 21 days from the date on which this notice is published, in the Environmental Information Centre at the address below.
