Rumours Canary Wharf Tube station would be closed for the evening rush hour were scotched by TfL, who said it would be open as usual.

However, the transport authority said commuters should find alternative ways of getting home from work on Wednesday, November 4, as crowd control measures would be in place at the station.

The station will have to cope with a flood of passengers on Tuesday, November 3, leading to speculation it might close for the evening rush hour on day two of the DLR strike.

A spokeswoman for TfL said: “The station will not be shutting, but we advise passengers to find alternative routes home, as the line will be very busy.”

Crowd control measures will be in place – meaning the entry of passengers will be staggered to avoid overcrowding on the platforms during the evening rush hour.

The spokeswoman said: “The DLR is a big transport asset in Canary Wharf and with that not operating because of the strike, we are advising people to leave work earlier.”
