Alsop railway station gets green light

  • Comment
This £11.5 million Docklands Light Railway (DLR) station by Alsop Design at Stratford in east London has started on site.

The station is designed to accommodate an increase in passenger numbers in the area, ahead of and during the 2012 London Olympics.

According to the architect, the DLR platform will have a 'snaking' lightweight steel-framed roof which will contrast with the 'sweeping curves' of Stratford Regional Station.

This roof will be supported on oval steel columns and the platform is to be clad in metal sheeting.

Occupying the centre of the platform will be overlapping translucent coloured-glass screens, creating alcoves for passenger seating, information boards and signage.

The project received planning permission from the London Borough of Newham in September last year and is due for completion at the end of 2006.
