EP Team - Traffic Improvements for 2024


All Aboard for Rail Live 2024!


EP Team is delighted to announce the commencement of a new contract to deliver a range of operational services for Rail Live 24, held at Long Marston Rail Centre. The UK’s largest outdoor rail exhibition takes place on 19th & 20th June and attracts over 250 live exhibitors and over 6,000 visitors. The site at Long Marston is the largest and most extensive rail storage facility in the UK.

EP Team has been contracted to produce and deliver a comprehensive traffic and parking management plan, provide support with on-site stewarding and wayfinding, as well as the build and break for hundreds of exhibition stands.

After significant challenges in 2023 with traffic management and parking operations with a previous supplier, the event organisers, Bauer Media approached EP Team with a view to streamlining traffic management operations to enable the show’s thousands of visitors to access and exit the site efficiently with minimum disruption to the surrounding road network.

EP Team have been providing traffic management planning, consultancy, and delivery for over 30 years and provide trained, experienced staff to carry out the process from start to finish. The company has supplied bespoke traffic management consultancy, planning and delivery for many high-profile events, most recently, The Commonwealth Games, Liam Gallagher at Knebworth and Canary Wharf Group as well ongoing contracts to supply traffic management for Wembley Stadium, Edgbaston Cricket Ground, and events at MK Bowl.

Preparation for traffic management planning has already begun and EP Team will deliver the traffic management & parking plan on 19th & 20th June, ensuring exhibitors and event industry professionals alike can access the site safely and efficiently, and enjoy what promises to be another fantastic showcase of rail industry equipment, live demonstrations, and networking opportunities for thousands of delegates.


EP Team Managing Director Scott Metcalfe commented,

“We were delighted to have been approached by the organisers of Rail Live to assist with streamlining the traffic management and parking operation for this prestigious event in the rail industry calendar. Traffic Management is one of our key services and areas of expertise. Effective, well planned traffic management can make a huge impact on operations and visitor perception of large events such as this. We are excited to be involved and confident we can deliver tangible improvements on previous years”.
