We answered

Our Ref:         FOI-0453-2223

Thank you for your request received on 29 May 2022 asking for information about asbestos in DLR stations and stock.

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Environmental Information Regulations and our information access policy. I can confirm we hold some of the information you require.

Our records show that no Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs) were identified in any of the areas surveyed within our reports for the stations listed. We do not hold information regarding the 1983 stock as the DLR was not in operation at this time. The original P86/P89 stock has been withdrawn and operated between 1987-1995. The current B92 stock which is currently in service does not contain any ACMs.

If this is not the information you are looking for please feel free to contact me.

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal.

Yours sincerely

Gemma Jacob
