DLR extension to Lewisham

Categories: Transport

The Docklands Light Railway was originally opened in 1987 and ran from Tower Gateway to Island Gardens and Stratford. As passenger numbers increased, the decision was taken to extend the line south of the river. This involved boring a double tunnel under the Thames from Island Gardens to Greenwich and through to five new stations, ending at Lewisham.
