ODA to invest £80m in DLR

London’s public transport system is set to benefit from £80 million investment from the Olympic Delivery Authority.

The investment will contribute towards various Docklands Light Railway projects that will expand the network for the 2012 Games and increase the number of rail cars.

Four new stations – Star Lane, Abbey Road, Stratford High Street and Stratford International – will be built along the Stratford International extension, which will open in July 2010.

ODA transport director Hugh Sumner said: “75p out of every £1 spent on the Games will be spent on projects that will leave a positive legacy. Commuters and residents will be able to see this legacy in action for themselves two years before the Games.”
