Bad news for those who rely on Tower Gateway DLR station: you’re going to have to find another way around starting this summer. Beginning in June, the DLR station will be closed while improvements are made. Service will hopefully return in April 2009.
Tower Gateway currently has platforms that can accommodate two-carriage trains, but as more people use the DLR, the need has arisen for trains with three carriages. The station will be closed while the platforms are extended. So, while you won’t be able to get your train at that stop for a ten-month period, at least when service resumes there’s a chance that you’ll be able to get a seat.
