Now that Canary Wharf Crossrail station building is getting close to completion, it does seem that there is no provision for the large footbridge at Poplar DLR station to link into it. If you don't know it, it's this bridge https://maps.google.com/maps?ll=51....AsQGS1Oo4isylClLx38ULw&cbp=12,129.03,,0,-5.57 which is a huge structure across the main road which ends in puny little steps down, and points straight at the Crossrail station building which is the one with the triangular glass panels on the right of the image. I always thought the intention was to go straight into the new station (it's about 100 metres across waste ground and what's left of the dock), but now the shops are fitting out to open late spring it seems there is no connection. It's far and away the closest DLR station to the new Crossrail one. Can this really be so? Otherwise what was the point of such a huge footbridge in the first place?
