Woolwich Arsenal DLR Station
Following on from the extension of the Docklands Light Railway to London City Airport the tracks will continue in tunnels under the Thames to a new station in Woolwich. Weston Williamson proposed changes to the alignment and layout in order to make the station more user-friendly and to improve the potential for oversite development. There are two station entrances with direct escalator access to the DLR platforms. The station uses both entrances to bring natural light deep into the station allowing the architecture to assist way finding and passenger orientation. The building is integrated into a public realm strategy that provides additional space for pedestrians at the entrances. The Station was opened in January 2009 ahead of schedule.
