Industry urged to fight District Line tube cuts

tfl tube cuts respond

The Association of Event Organisers (AEO) is urging exhibition organisers to fight against Transport for London’s (TfL) proposed cuts to weekday District Line tube services to Kensington Olympia.
 
As previously reported on EN, TfL plans to restrict District Line services to Kensington Olympia to weekends and when “special events” take place at London Olympia. The changes are scheduled to come into effect from December and were first revealed in April.
 
TfL has again extended the deadline for individuals to respond to the proposed changes from 30 June to 15 July. Those concerned can fill in a questionnaire on the transport authority’s website: http://www.tfl.gov.uk/corporate/projectsandschemes/20357.aspx
 
The AEO used its members newsletter to ask organisers to fight for the District Line service to be retained. In a LinkedIn posting, Diversified Business Communication MD Carsten Holm also backed the AEO’s campaign and stressed the economic implications the tube cuts could have on the exhibition industry.
 
“EC&O and the AEO are working hard on behalf of all of us to make sure we stop this ludicrous proposal which would have serious consequences for what could soon be the last major venue in the centre of our capital,” Holm said.
 
Earls Court and Olympia and the Kensington and Chelsea Council are fighting hard against the proposed tube cuts and are working to raise awareness of their concerns to Government.
