Asked Of: 
The Mayor


There have been reports of many motorists being charged PCNs in Station Approach at Hayes and Harlington station for simply dropping people off or picking people up outside the station. Apparently the road is private, but motorists have no reason to believe this or consider this as it looks like a normal road, but are told after they receive a PCN that they should know as there is a sign by the station stating as such. What will the Mayor do to ensure that motorists do not continue to be stung by what they may justifiably consider to be a 'shakedown'?

As you know, Station Approach in Hayes does not form part of Transport for London's Road Network. Therefore, I can confirm no Penalty Charge Notices have been issued to members of the public by either TfL or the MPS on that road.

However, I have asked TfL to raise your concerns directly with Great Western who manage the station and the surrounding area.
