DLR celebrates 30 years of service

The Docklands Light Railway was opened by the Queen in 1987, linking destinations including London City Airport, Stratford and Bank.

The step-free service began with only 11 single-carriage trains that served 15 stations. Now the network has 56 trains, each mainly made up of three carriages, serving 45 stations and has grown from carrying 6.7 million passengers to 122 million passengers - writes itv.

Transport for London (TfL) will soon launch a new line map which aims to simplify journey planning for customers by using different shades of blue for each branch of the light railway and providing clearer interchange information. There will also be a '30 things to do by DLR' list featuring attractions across east London including the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Newham City Farm and the Royal Museums in Greenwich.
