Docklands Light Railway (Dlr) Station

Date Published 13 January 2009

The new Woolwich Arsenal Docklands Light Railway (DLR) Station has now opened. It is the terminus to a new £18 million extension providing another vital north-south link to the capital. The extension also links DLR King George V Station on the north of the river with Woolwich Arsenal in the south. Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London said "I am absolutely delighted that this extension of the DLR with its cracking new station is up and running and puts Woolwich Arsenal firmly on the Tube map". Woolwich has long lacked the transport links that encourage the creation of new jobs, homes and shops and this is exactly the sort of project that will help kick the credit crunch where it hurts. The extension will also play an important role in the Olympic transport network. People in this part of London will now be just a 24 minute hop, skip and jump away from the Olympic site. As with the rest of the DLR network, Woolwich Arsenal station has step-free access to all platforms and trains. Connections - Woolwich to London City Airport in six mins, Canary Wharf in 20 mins, Stratford in 23 mins and Bank in 28 mins. In the peak period, trains will leave every six to seven mins Direct
