Docklands Light Railway

In Partnership with VolkerRail, Skanska extended the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) from Stratford International to Canning Town.

Spanning a distance of 5km along the route of the original North London Line and next to London Underground’s Jubilee Line, the scheme was successfully opened a year ahead of the London 2012 Olympic Games and is a vital transport link today for east London.

The work included building four new station platforms, remodelling of three existing stations, laying track and installing communications equipment. The team carried out 300 metres of double track alignment work to prepare for the new rail link between Stratford and Stratford International, in addition to laying 600 metres of double track and building two new platforms.
