Request ID: FOI-2903-2223 Date published: 28 February 2023
Please can you issue the section 61 agreement with the relevant local authority for maintenance activities on or near Canning Town Station. This should include all work on the railway (including DLR and Jubilee line) and any works in the station.
TfL Ref: 2903-2223 Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 5 February 2023 asking for information about Canning Town Station. Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy. I can confirm that we hold some of the information you require. You asked: Please can you issue the section 61 agreement with the relevant local authority for maintenance activities on or near Canning Town Station. We can advise that Canning Town Station is located on Silvertown Way, which is not part of the Transport for London Road Network (TLRN)– the capital’s red routes. Therefore any maintenance works on Silvertown Way would be implemented by the local highways authority, rather than TfL. In these circumstances, you may wish to contact Newham Council directly via the following link to their website for any information they may hold in this regard: https://www.newham.gov.uk/contact-information/freedom-information This should include all work on the railway (including DLR and Jubilee line) and any works in the station. Whilst there are currently no London Underground works taking place in this vicinity, please find attached a copy of the Section 61 Agreement regarding the Dockland Light Railway track replacement programme at Canning Town Station. In accordance with TfL’s obligations under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), some personal data has also been removed from this document, as required by section 40 of the FOI. This is because disclosure of this personal data would be a breach of the legislation, specifically the first principle of the GDPR, which requires all processing of personal data to be fair and lawful. It would not be fair to disclose this personal information when the individuals have no expectation it would be disclosed and TfL has not satisfied one of the conditions which would make the processing ‘fair’. This exemption to the right of access to information is an absolute exemption and not subject to an assessment of whether the public interest favours use of the exemption. If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable to access it for any reason, please do not hesitate to contact me. Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal as well as information on copyright and what to do if you would like to re-use any of the information we have disclosed.
