Does anyone know if there are plans to change public transport next
Wednesday and Thursday when the Summit is in town. At work we
are being warned about probable disruption (I work in the City) from
demonstrations so I was wondering whether I will be even to get
there or not.
The latest TFL travel information bulletin - out today - identifies the
risk but says there are no advance plans available at this point.
But DLR are saying this:
DLR STATION CLOSURES ON THURSDAY 2 APRIL 2009
Due to the G20 Summit at ExCeL London, the Metropolitan Police have
requested that a number of DLR stations are closed on Thursday 2 April.
The stations affected are Royal Victoria, Custom House for ExCeL and Prince
Regent. *Services will operate as normal on all routes, but will not stop
at the affected stations. *Passengers are advised to use their nearest
Times and stations affected may be modified at short notice at Police
request. *Please check before you travel.
We apologise for any inconvenience.
Not at all surprised by that - the whole area around the Excel centre
is going to be 'locked down' to the max, and the DLR line in question
skirts the northern perimeter of the centre's grounds. There'll surely
be a heavy BTP presence on the DLR network then too.
