Organizers of next week's World Travel Market (WTM), one of the largest travel trade shows in the world, has informed delegates that the Docklands Light Railway in London will be closed between Beckton/Woolwich and Stratford International on Saturday, 5 November until 1pm on Sunday, 6 November.

The closure will affect anyone travelling to ExCeL London via Canning Town Underground/DLR station on Saturday, 5 November until 14:30 on Sunday 6 November.

Transport for London will re-open the line from 13:00 on Sunday, 6 November and a full service is expected to be up and running by approximately 14:30.

Transport for London / DLR has put on a dedicated comprehensive bus shuttle service between Canning Town and the ExCeL London venue, where WTM is located, for the period the DLR is closed. The bus shuttle service will operate every five minutes and will be stopping at both entrances to the venue to ensure disruption is kept to a minimum.

DLR services for WTM ( 7 November - 10 November) will be greatly improved with a 50% capacity increase across the service compared to last year, with trains running every two and a half minutes.

Other improvements include a new platform at Canning Town Station to help ease congestion and new escalators at Custom House Station improving entry and exit from ExCeL London.
