Crossharbour is a Docklands Light Railway (DLR) station in Cubitt Town in east London. It is between Mudchute and South Quay stations and is in Travelcard Zone 2.

The Docklands Light Railway station opened as "Crossharbour" on 31 August 1987, and was renamed in 1994 to "Crossharbour and London Arena". Now that the neighbouring London Arena has been demolished the original name has been reinstated.[4]

Layout

There are two platforms at the station with a reversing siding between the two running tracks just to the south of the station, and some trains (mainly from Stratford DLR station) used to terminate here as Lewisham DLR station was unable to handle too many trains. Nowadays however, it is rare to see trains terminate at Crossharbour, as many trains from Stratford now terminate at Canary Wharf DLR station.

The St John's Estate is social housing estate adjacent to the DLR station.

Connections

London Buses routes 135, D3, D6, and D8 serve the station.
