Central London Road Closure

UPDATE: Closure extended by 1 week, now closed until Friday 21st March 2014.

Central London Road Closure

We have received notification from Transport for London that Fenchurch Street will now be closed until Friday 21st March 2014. This is to enable contractors to complete various utility connections to the new build development in Fenchurch Street.

All PM services will divert via Upper and Lower Thames Street from Monday 3rd February 2014.

For the duration of this diversion we will be unable to serve our regular PM bus stops located on Queen Victoria Street, Cannon Street, Eastcheap and Great Tower Street. We will instead be serving Puddle Dock (outside the Mermaid Conference & Events Centre) and Upper Thames Street (bus stop 47).

To ease the congestion at our Canary Wharf bus stop we will also be reintroducing our 16:35 725 service for the duration of the Fenchurch Street closure.

Please note this change impacts our PM services only.

As always we will keep you updated with any changes via the normal channels.

VIP Service plays host to Overseas Football Teams

Our VIP service have played host to US football team, the New York Cosmos this week, who originally came over to play a pre-season friendly with Watford on Saturday. Unfortunately, as can be the case with pre-season football fixtures, the game was brought forward to Friday. Then it changed again. And then … they ended up playing Gillingham and Leyton Orient!

We were also lucky enough to be responsible for transferring Granada, a Spanish La Liga team, from the airport, to a training session and then onwards to a game against Watford on Saturday. Granada were unlucky to lose 2-0 to Watford and, no doubt, were happy to be taken back to the airport by us to return to sunny Spain.

 

As many of you know, the Emirates Cup was held on 3rd and 4th August and we also had the pleasure of looking after both the Napoli and Galatasaray teams whilst they were in London for this prestigious pre-season competition.

 

It has been a pleasure for us to welcome these international teams to the UK and we were privileged to be a part of their stay here. We would also like to congratulate Galatasaray on being crowned champions of this year’s tournament.
