A petition has been launched calling for the extension of the Tube service at Kensington Olympia Station.
Currently the District line station has limited London Underground service, despite being located next door to the Olympia London exhibition centre, which attracts huge crowds throughout the year.
Among those throwing their weight behind the campaign is Yoo Capital, owners of the exhibition centre .
The petition was launched near the end of November and has been signed by more than 1,500 people.
It is calling on Transport for London (TfL) to restore a full regular District line tube service at the station.
According to the Olympia London website, there is only a District line service from Earl's Court on weekends, and during the week for some major events.
The station is also served by London Overground and Southern Railway.
John Hitchcox, from Yoo Capital, said: “We are one of the most important business and public exhibition centres in the UK.
“It’s an embarrassment that we don’t have a full public underground service to support our vital activities.
“We exhibit over 100,000 small and medium size businesses a year, delivering huge amounts of trade between businesses and the public.
“We have a station we have tracks, TFL please just turn the trains on.”
A move to return a full underground service to the station would benefit businesses and people living in the area, according to the petition.
It would also meet rising demand, with footfall increasing from 700,000 to 1.6 million since the full Tube service was removed in 2011.
The current limited Tube service is holding back the area, the petition claims: “With many businesses reluctant to settle in the area due to transport concerns, we need a full tube service to support growth in the local economy.”
