    Tucked away in this TfL press release - http://www.tfl.gov.uk/corporate/media/newscentre/28399.aspx - which concerns the appointment of a contractor for the platform works to enable 5-car trains on the ELL and SLL portions of the Overground, is the good news that Canada Water will get platform extensions.

    No more detail is given, but from a bit of investigation it seems that just enough extra room will be chiselled out of the tunnel to allow all doors on all 5 cars to open within the station.

    There is no sign of other associated works, such as improving the overcrowded access to the Jubilee Line from the Northbound platform , but it is welcome nonetheless.
