Gallions Reach DLR station is a station on the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) in the Docklands area of east London. It serves the Gallions Reach Retail Park.[4]

The station is located on the DLR's Beckton branch, between Cyprus and Beckton stations. It is in Travelcard Zone 3.

The platforms have not been extended to accommodate 3-car trains, and although metal catwalks have been installed, these are too narrow for non-emergency use and Selective Door Operation is used instead.

The crossover east of the station which is usually used for trains from the west going to Beckton DLR depot, can also be used for trains from Beckton and Poplar to reverse.

Future[edit]

It is proposed that an extension to Dagenham Dock will diverge from the line east of Gallions Reach if ever built.

In 2009 London Mayor Boris Johnson announced a consultation into the possibility of a ferry service at Gallion's Reach, linking Beckton with Thamesmead in south east London.

The East London Transit has been suggested to be extended here linking Barking Reach and Creekmouth and Barking.

Connections[edit]

London Buses routes 101; 262; 366; 376; 474 and school route 678 and night route N551 serve the station.
