The Stratford International extension will consist of seven stations between Canning Town and Stratford International. The former North London Line platforms at Canning Town, West Ham and Stratford will be converted to DLR operation.Four new DLR stations will be built at:• Stratford International• Abbey Road• West Ham• Star LaneAll stations will be fully accessible for mobility-impaired passengers.
Stratford International stationA new DLR station is being built adjacent to the new High Speed 1 Stratford International station. The station will have two entrances at opposite ends of the platforms. The principal entrance will be at the east, aligning with the pedestrian entrance at street level and will have two lifts and escalators to the low level DLR platforms. The secondary entrance will be at the west end opposite the future bus station, and will have one lift and stairs to the low level DLR platforms.
Stratford High Street stationStratford High Street will be a twin platform station where the platforms are either side of the tracks. It is located just south of the Stratford High Street with footbridge connections to Bridge Road to provide access to surrounding areas. To locate the station here Bridge Road has been permanently closed, except for emergency vehicle access. The road closure will avoid taking any permanent land from Rokeby School and ensure the station remains close to Stratford High Street.
Stratford stationTwo new platforms have been constructed in the location of the old London Overground platforms next to the Jubilee line. These will be specifically used for trains serving the Stratford International extension. The platforms will be accessed through the existing station building, utilising the stairs and lifts that are currently in place. The existing high level DLR platforms, 4a and 4b remain, taking passengers to Lewisham via Poplar and Canary Wharf.
West Ham stationThe island platform, formerly part of the North London line, will be widened for DLR use and linked to the existing station with stairs from the concourse and an additional lift.
Abbey Road stationThe station concourse access will be from Abbey Road via two lifts and stairs with a secondary access onto Bakers Row.
Star Lane stationStar Lane station will use an island platform, accessed from Star Lane and Stephenson Street via a fully accessible footbridge. The existing footbridge was removed in August 2008, and the new replacement footbridge will open in early 2011 at the same time as the new station.
