Surrealism in Stockton

Taxi customers in Stockton were left utterly confused by a sign saying the rank was moving to a nonexistent street – on a nonexistent date!

The yellow works sign at the southern end of Stockton High Street said: “Taxi rank relocated to Bridge Street, Thursday 21st June, 1400-1600.”

One bemused cabbie said:

  “Asked where is Bridge St.? Sorry says the taxi driver there isn’t one, but don’t worry the 21st does not fall on a Thursday until 2018.

“That will give our council time to build one.”

Stockton Council said the sign has now been removed and the relocated ranks will be on Bridge Road and Prince Regent Street.

Councillor David Rose, Cabinet member for regeneration and transport, explained:

 “Due to the events being held to show our support for the Armed Forces in Stockton town centre on Thursday this sign was installed by a traffic management company to notify people that the taxi rank will be relocated while soldiers from the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers parade through the High Street.

“We are sorry to learn that the sign contained incorrect information and apologise for any inconvenience.”
