Default Earls Court subway

I have not seen the subway from Earls Court station directly into
Earls Court Exhibition Hall in use for what seems many years.
Passengers going to the arena have to climbs stairs then exit at
Warwick Road and cross the road. Is there a reason why the direct
subway from the station is no longer used?.

The Exhibition hall may have moved their "cordon" to somewhere 'outside'
wherever that tunnel emerges.

It's all a question of money. I worked at Earls Court station around
four years ago and at that time the management of Earls Court
exhibition centre were refusing to pay for the staff required to run
the subway when needed. LU refused as well so the subway has been
closed for about five years now. The escalators were switched on every
weekend as per station instructions and one a month Otis would send
engineers along to clean them, they had a long maintenance contract to
keep up.

Thanks for the replies, Earls Court Arena will be used for some
Olympic events, maybe they will open the subway then!.
Afterward it seem that the site mayl be demolished for apartments.
