Just a stones throw away

While we are talking about modes of transport and the DLR extension to London City Airport and beyond don't forget that we are also literally a stones throw away from the River Thames. Commuters, Tourists and Business people alike should remember that as another potential means of transport. Click here for a quick peek at Thames Clippers and where to get onboard.

DLR London City Airport extension now open

Today, Tuesday 6 December 2005, Ken Livingstone, the Mayor of London officially opened the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) London City Airport Extension. The new extension passes right by Waterfront Studios and the new station 'West Silvertown' is our nearest stop. In February 2004, the Secretary of State confirmed powers for the further extension of the London City Airport line under the Thames to Woolwich Arsenal. The new link, mostly in tunnel will link King George V station and a new DLR station in Woolwich town centre. The Woolwich Arsenal Extension should be open by early 2009.
