It brings up a question, though--why are there so many DLR stations at
Canary Wharf so close together? It appears that West India Quay-Canary
Wharf DLR are closer to each other than Leicester Square-Covent Garden! It
is a pretty short ride.

They are built on the former docks so there are stretches of water
between each station. As there are few other bridges it's quite handy
that DLR serves each individual dock. You should still be able to see
some of the water, but as the area gets more developed it is slowly

As long as people will accept crap, it will be financially profitable to dispense it. Dick Cavett
