DLR sta­tions un­der pres­sure

The Wharf - - News -

DLR sta­tions serv­ing south Lon­don are likely to be busy next week be­cause of a knock-on from Network Rail works, says TfL.

South­east­ern Trains are not serv­ing Char­ing Cross, Water­loo East or Lon­don Bridge be­cause be­tween Satur­day, Au­gust 26, and Satur­day, Septem­ber 2, leav­ing thou­sands of peo­ple look­ing for al­ter­na­tives.

The pres­sure will trans­fer to Wool­wich Ar­se­nal, Green­wich and Lewisham DLR sta­tions and TfL says it will in­sti­tute a queu­ing sys­tem dur­ing peak hours. Bank sta­tion is also likely to be busier, es­pe­cially be­tween 8.30am and 8.45am, warns TfL.

DLR di­rec­tor Danny Price said: “Where pos­si­ble, please travel out­side of the busiest times.”
