Tower Gateway (ZTG)

Tower Gateway was the original Western terminus of the Docklands Light Railway though these days it has been to an extent eclipsed by later additions to the network.
Type: Transport for London
(Docklands Light Railway)
Station code: ZTG
Opened: 1987
Platforms: 2

The station was opened in 1987 as the terminus of the City route of the original DLR scheme but was replaced as the main Western terminus in 1991 when the extension to Bank was opened. Tower Gateway is close to London Fenchurch Street and Tower Hill stations. Most services to the station originate from Beckton.

As built the station had two tracks with a cross-over just outside the station [1] but Tower Gateway is nowadays a single line terminus. It has separate platforms for loading and unloading passengers. Transport for London are considering closing Tower Gateway to release more capacity for the much busier Bank (though it still has over 4 million passengers a year!)
