Pudding Mill Lane is largest on the DLR network
Weston Williamson’s DLR station at the southern end of the Olympic Park in east London has opened.
The previous station - one of the smallest on the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) - was moved to make room for a tunnel entrance for one of the new Crossrail lines.
The new Pudding Mill Lane station, by Transport for London and Crossrail, is the largest on the DLR network.
From the end of 2018, Crossrail trains will emerge from the new tunnels at Pudding Mill Lane and join existing rail lines through northeast London to Essex.
Crossrail chief executive Andrew Wolstenholme said: “This was a large and challenging project with the London Olympic and Paralympic Games, Great Eastern Mainline, DLR and several crucial London utilities all on our doorstep.
“It required sophisticated engineering and construction work and a great deal of communication and collaboration to get to this point. It is another great example of what can be achieved by working well together.”
