Answer for Woolwich Dockyard

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I understand that the platforms at Woolwich Dockyard cannot be extended beyond 10 cars, and that the rolling stock used on this line is not capable of selective door opening. However Southeastern has committed to TfL that it will continue to run enough 10-car trains on this route to provide a sufficient service at Woolwich Dockyard, even once the upgrade is completed.
