Canary Wharf Station

 

The Canary Wharf Tube Station is located on the Jubilee Line, between Canada Water and North Greenwich. The Canary Wharf is being maintained by Tube Lines. The busiest London Underground station, the Canary Wharf Tube Station is being passed by approximately 40 million people every year.

Canary Wharf's is designed by architect Sir Norman Foster and constructed by Tarmac Construction

and Bachy UK Joint Venture. The cathedral-like interior of the wharf made it a popular venue for wedding celebrations. Thankfully, the proportions were made large enough to accommodate a great volume of passengers, which amounts to 50,000 to 70,000 daily. An escalator was added in 1999, and it was opened by Ken Livingstone. It also shares a name with the Docklands Light Railway station at Canary Wharf, but the two are not integrated. It is also near Heron Quays DLR station. In fact all three stations are connected underground via shopping malls.

The interior is enclosed with a two curved glass canopies at the east and west centered by a public park. Below-ground stations are equipped with platform edge doors. Danny Boyle's film, "28 Days Later" used the station as a location for some of the scenes.

Currently, the Canary Wharf Station is undergoing changes to make it more accessible to commuters. This is being done by making quick connections to other stations.
