A Quick Overview of South Quay
South Quay is a Docklands Light Railway (DLR) station in Canary Wharf, in London. It is between Crossharbour and Heron Quays stations and is in Travelcard Zone 2.
South Quay station is located on the southern shore of the South Dock of the West India Docks; the current station platforms sit astride the channel connecting Millwall Dock to the West India Docks.
- The original South Quay station opened in 1987, and was a standard DLR phase 1 elevated station, subsequently extended to permit the use of 2 car trains.
- The station was constrained by sharp curves at both ends and could not therefore be further extended on its former site.
- The DLR's plans to operate 3 car trains on this line therefore included the relocation of this station some distance to the east.
