With the London Olympics opening in three years’ time, 27 July 2012, Excel London claims is “totally committed” to assisting in the £3.5 billion regeneration of transport links.
The East London venue will look to reap the benefits from developments to the Docklands Light Railway and the East London line, including increased passenger capacity and upgrades to stations and infrastructures.
“The team are totally committed to the key issue of transport and are working with all partners involved to keep any inconvenience to a minimum,” says Excel chief executive Kevin Murphy. “The whole of London will be affected, but we are at the forefront of this issue directly affecting our transportation routes.”
According to Excel, 2008 saw transport closures during 38 weekends, causing disruptions to travellers’ journeys to and from the site.
“We will continue to engage with the likes of Transport for London, the DLR, Visit London and the Mayor’s Office to ensure the best possible solutions for our customers,” adds Murphy.
