It was a busy week for the DLR, which also opened the second portion of its new upper level platform at Stratford Regional Station for services to and from Canary Wharf. These new DLR platforms are enhanced with contemporary coloured glass panels, and substantial zig-zag style canopies – a long way from the single cramped platform and old roof that the DLR first used at Stratford in 1987.
Stratford Regional Station:
The forthcoming DLR service between Woolwich Arsenal and Stratford International station means that there will be two distinct sets of DLR platforms and services at Stratford Regional with the new ones at the lower level for DLR trains heading north to the International station. These station enhancements will complement the ODA’s investment of more than £100m into improving capacity and accessibility at the station. A lot of new railway!
Combined with our contribution of co-funding 22 of an additional 55 new rail cars (which will see the majority of DLR services operate three-car trains instead of two-car services), these latest developments make further headway to producing real and lasting benefits for east London commuters.
