The opening of the Elizabeth Line will have a positive impact on venues close to it’s stations according to the CEO of ExCeL
The Elizabeth line, which will reduce travel time to ExCeL London by up to two thirds, is set to open on 24 May.
Jeremy Rees, CEO of ExCeL London, had announced the opening of the Elizabeth line as a “game-changer” for the city and the recovery of the UK’s £32.1 billion events industry.
With the Royal Docks venue who will also be having their own devoted Elizabeth line station, in addition to two existing DLR stops, Rees says it will cut journey times by up to two thirds, with the resulting time saved leading to a significant increase in networking and commercial trade from delegates.
Furthermore, according to a recent report by i-Transport, the new line will see people within 45 minutes rail travel time of ExCeL increase by up to 68%, and those living within 120 minutes (by rail) rising to 9.2m.
The high-speed Elizabeth line – which now becomes part of the existing TFL network – stretches more than 60 miles from Reading and Heathrow in the west to Shenfield and Abbey Wood in the east, with 24 trains running per hour once fully operational.
For ExCeL London, visitors from central London will now be able to reach the venue in as short as 12 minutes, whilst door-to-door from Heathrow Airport will just be 43 minutes.
