THERE ARE SEVERAL WAYS
those attending DSEi can get in: road, rail, Docklands
light railway and the London City Airport.
TUBE: Unlikely, as they'd have to walk past
at least the CAAT protestors, although we guess
most would catch a cab for the 10 minute
walk. Jubilee line, Canning Town station.
DOCKLANDS LIGHT RAILWAY:
Royal Victoria, Customs House and Prince
Regent stations on the Becton line of DLR all
serve Excel. Customs House is closest, and has
a bridge and walkway leading directly to the
main entrance to the building.
RAIL: Canning Town, Customs House and
City Airport are all on the Silverlink rail line.
The line skirts the centre of London, from
Richmond, through Hampstead, Camden,
Hackney, Stratford to North Woolwich.
ROAD: There are two road entrances to
Excel, at the east and west sides. The barriers
formed by the rail lines and the dock make it
impossible for them to create temporary
entrances elsewhere in event of the two road
ways being blocked.
LONDON CITY AIRPORT: Basically a
business airport, right next door to Excel.
There is road access to Excel, via Connaught
Bridge, but it only leads to the east entrance.
