Visitors to London’s Canary Wharf have risen by more than a quarter since the Elizabeth Line railway opened last week, boosting its attractiveness to workers and as a recreation site, according to the chief executive officer of the  business district’s main landlord.

The transportation line, intended to improve cross-London travel and named in honor of Queen Elizabeth II, will be a “game changer,” adding a “critical” connection to Heathrow airport, Shobi Khan said in an interview Wednesday with Bloomberg TV.
