 Articles - East London Line
The opening of the Docklands Light Railway provided a new connection for the East London Line at Shadwell (although the tube and DLR stations are 50 m apart and the interchange is via the street), and in 1999 a new station, Canada Water, was opened to connect with the Jubilee Line Extension.
In 1998, London Transport announced that it was seeking private funds to realise plans that had been discussed for some years to extend the line into south London, sharing track and stations with the main line network (as already happens on parts of the Bakerloo Line, District Line and Metropolitan Line).
However, it was held up when it came to light that a Grade I-listed 17th century Braithwaite arches in the former Bishopsgate Goods Yard was to be demolished as part of the project.

Unique among the stations on this list, Bull and Bush was never opened although it was completed at track level as part of the Edgware Line in 1907.
However, following the rebuilding of both nearby stations it was closed in May 1932 and a reversing siding built into the station space.
On the tight curve just before the junction to the East London line, the station was always small and cramped and also very close to Whitechapel and Aldgate East stations (especially after the latter was moved further eastwards in 1938).
