London City Airport DLR station is a station on the Docklands Light Railway which opened in December 2005. It is located on the King George V branch. Trains run Westbound to Bank in the City of London and Eastbound to King George V, which is the next stop.

The station is in the London Borough of Newham and is located in Travelcard Zone 3.


[edit] Location

Prior to December 2005, Docklands Light Railway trains would arrive at Canning Town and would only be able to continue in a southeasterly direction towards Royal Victoria. In December 2005, however, the new King George V branch was opened and trains can now continue South: they cross under Lower Lea Crossing, travel along Silvertown Way before reaching North Woolwich Road (A1020). The train passes through West Silvertown DLR and Pontoon Dock DLR. At this point the train takes a sharp northeasterly turn, crossing Connaught Road to arrive at the West side of London City Airport where the station is situated. The station (like many Docklands Light Railway stations) is elevated and fully enclosed. There are two entrances to the station and the platforms are connected by escalators and lifts to an intermediate level with a direct link into the airport concourse. Main access to the station for local passengers and mobility impaired customers is by a lower level subway.
