- Canary Wharf DLR station
Canary Wharf DLR station is a
Docklands Light Railway(DLR) station in London, England. Built into the base of One Canada Square, between two parts of a shopping centre, [http://www.tfl.gov.uk/gettingaround/transportaccessibility/dlr/3267.aspx Canary Wharf - Transport for London] "TfL official site" Retrieved 2007-09-03] it serves the Canary Wharfoffice complex. The station itself has six platforms serving three rail tracks and is sheltered by a distinctive elliptical glass roof.
The station is located on the DLR between Heron Quays station and West India Quay station, in
Travelcard Zone 2, which are in fact the three closest train stations on the same line in the world.Fact|date=January 2008 The station is shown on the Tube mapas being an interchange with Canary Wharf tube station[ [http://www.tfl.gov.uk/assets/downloads/colourmap.pdf Tube map] "TfL official site" Retrieved 2007-09-03] but is situated some distance from the tube station with a choice of sign-posted routes through either the shopping malls under the office complex or on the street. Interchanging between Heron Quays DLR station and Canary Wharf tube station is possibly shorter and more straight forward.
Canary Wharf station had been part of the original DLR plans, but when the system opened in August 1987 the station was not ready. [http://www.tfl.gov.uk/corporate/modesoftransport/dlr/history/2982.aspx DLR history timeline] "TfL official site" Retrieved

It soon became apparent that the Canary Wharf development would produce demand well above the capacity of a simple station. On 17 July 1987(over a month before the DLR opened to the public) a contract was awarded to GEC- MowlemRailway Group to rebuild the station into the considerably more elaborate and spacious design that exists today. It was opened in November 1991.
