Royal Victoria Station is on the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) in east London. It opened on 28 March 1994 and is named after the nearby Royal Victoria Dock.
It is on the DLR's
Beckton branch, in Travelcard Zone 3.
National Rail's North London Line ran parallel to the DLR between Canning Town and Custom House stations until the Stratford to North Woolwich section closed on 9 December 2006. Its tracks passed close by the DLR platforms, but there were no NLL platforms although this is near the former Tidal Basin station on the Eastern Counties and Thames Junction Railway.
During 2009, as part of the
Canning Town DLR flyover and the new DLR line from Canning Town to Stratford, a siding was added to the Victoria Dock Road side of the station. [ The Canning Town junction and flyover occupy the whole distance between Royal Victoria and Canning Town stations. ] citation needed [ ] citation needed
