World Travel Market travel

WORLD TRAVEL MARKET (WTM) has learnt from the transport difficulties experienced at last year’s show by introducing what it calls The Travel Hub at the nearby Canning Town station.  Hopefully staff will be able to co-ordinate dealing with any problems that may arrive, particularly during the very heavy early and mid-morning periods.  With the re-opening of the DLR Tower Gateway station it will offer a much quicker connection to the Circle and District lines and the trains themselves will operate every three minutes during the peak periods.  The double deck buses used last year will be replaced by the ‘Bendy’ variety, doubling capacity.  On the river, Thames Clippers is also increasing the frequency of its catamarans to a ten-minute service to various piers on both banks of the Thames.  Finally WTM is introducing a clearly signposted walking route from Canning Town Station to give visitors an alternative route to and from the event should all else fail.  The show runs Monday 9 November to Thursday 12 November. www.wtmlondon.com
