Docklands Light Railway usage up by more than half

Docklands Light Railway (DLR) passenger figures are up 65 per cent with extra Olympic traffic.

Other statistics released by LOCOG show that the number of vehicles on London’s streets have fallen by 17 per cent since the stat of the Games.

Organisers have again predicted an extremely busy day on the London Underground, London Overground and DLR services, with late evening services expected to be busier than usual because of spectators returning from Wembley.

There are currently minor delays between Bank and Lewisham and between Stratford and Greenwich due to an earlier signal failure at Canary Wharf.

In February, new signalling software was installed across the DLR network in time for the Games which would allow the system to recover more quickly from delays.
