The existing railway south of Crossharbour will be dismantled and replaced by underground track.
From the new undergound Island Gardens station the line will continue south in two tunnels under the river Thames to the west of the existing foot tunnel, to a new underground station at Cutty Sark. From here the line will continue underground to emerge at Greenwich station where a new DLR station will be built alongside the existing railtrack station. The extension cuntinues south of Greenwich station on a twin track viaduct to a station located above the A2 at Deptford Bridge and further south to Elverson Road. Next the line will continue at ground level to the new terminus at Lewisham which will be between the existing Lewisham Rail station and Lewisham bus station, served by 36 bus services.
