An outline of the timetable and funding arrangements for the project will be available this summer.

TfL and the GLA are currently working with the relevant boroughs to understand how best to maximise growth and deliver new homes in the Thamesmead and Abbey Wood Opportunity Area. The work will include a transport study, which will assess the contribution that schemes such as the DLR can make to transforming the area. This study will be completed this summer and will set out the conclusions of that work, the timescales for delivery and options for funding. The outcome will be subject to consultation with the public and affected stakeholders later this year.
