    DLR Woolwich Arsenal Extension PPP Project
    Docklands Light Railway Limited (DLR Limited). DLR Limited is a private limited company wholly owned by Transport Trading Limited, which is itself owned by Transport for London ("TfL") which is the Greater London Authority's organisation responsible for planning and provision of transport in London.
    Proposed EIB finance (Approximate amount)
    Total cost (Approximate amount)
    Up to 50% of senior debt.

    The Concessionaire will design, build, finance, maintain and make available to DLR Limited the 2.5-km Woolwich Extension (from London City Airport to Woolwich Arsenal) of the Docklands Light Rail for the purposes of DLR Limited operating a revenue-generating passenger train service.

    The project is situated in an objective 2 area: Woolwich has been identified as a major regeneration area within the Thames Gateway to the East of London. The Woolwich area remains a depressed area containing some of the most deprived urban wards in England. Improvements in accessibility will be an important component in its economic regeneration.
