Transport for London wants to close down Olympia station on weekdays, even though this will mean the "slow death" of the Olympia exhibition centre (see here) and deprive disabled people of one of their few access points to the tube network (see here).
Now Hammersmith MP Andy Slaughter has managed to persuade TfL to listen to local residents’ concerns. So come along and put your questions to TfL’s Richard Parry at a meeting tonight (26 July) at 7pm in the Pillar Hall, Olympia.
A warning -- Richard Parry is a wily operator. It took persistent questioning from the audience at a public meeting in January 2008 to get him to stop sliding around and admit that TfL was going back on its plans to install disabled passenger lifts in the new Shepherd's Bush Central line station (see here).
