Westferry (ZWF)

Westferry is a stop on the City or Bank route of Docklands Light Railway between Limehouse and Poplar, Canary Wharf or West India Quay depending on the branch.

Type: Transport for London
(Docklands Light Line)
Station code: ZWF
Opened: 1987
Platforms: 2
Westferry was opened in 1987 named after Westferry Road which is near the station. Westferry could have been named Limehouse as it was near the site of the now closed Limehouse station of the London & Blackwall Railway though the name was given to the DLR station built on the site of the former Stepney Green station instead [1].

Westferry is a busy station with trains every couple of minutes to Bank or Tower Gateway and in the other direction to Beckton, Lewisham or Woolwich Arsenal.

Like many DLR stations it is built on an elevated section of track with steps and lifts down to ground level.
