plan the services during the 2012 Games is underway. DLR train schedules are being developed to
provide maximum capacity for the start and finish of events at each venue. Therefore this means the DLR schedule is
dependent on any changes to event schedules. Currently the DLR is predicted to carry over 500,000 passengers on the
busiest day during the Olympic Games.
the DLR will be serving several venues it will become very busy at times. Only Pudding Mill Lane station will be closed
however some other stations serving ExCeL and Greenwich Park will operate
one-way systems from time to time, to manage large numbers of passengers. Trains to and from Bank will become
particularly busy during peak periods.
residents and businesses are advised to check travel news and advice published
ahead of the Games. It may be more
convenient to make local journeys that are not essential at quieter times, or
away from routes used by spectators to and from venues. Employers will be asked to consider using
flexible working arrangements; allowing employees to travel outside the peaks
or work from home if possible.
information will be released when it becomes available.
