I've never been checked on the DLR .... the stations I use most are Lewisham and Canary Wharf.

I predict the East Tower to be around 1 month behind the West.

You can so often get away without a ticket on the DLR, but its really not worth it because every so often the inspector will come round.

*Update* - Today - 27th July 2006

Some photos I took of the site today. I've also added some bullet-point information for you:
[*]This photo shows the 2 cores of the 'West Tower' (the tower in the above rendering).
[*]The 'East Tower' is approximately 1 month behind the 'West Tower'. The core of the West tower is below street level.











As this is the international forum, here's the best places to take photos of projects under construction in London:

Pan Peninsula site - South Quay DLR station (Bank/Stratford platform)

51 Lime Street/Willis Building - Tower Bridge or South Bank (by City Hall)

Olympic Park Site - Stratford multi-storey car park (thanks DarJoLe)

Ontario Tower - Royal Victoria Dock (north-side, looking west) or Greenwich Peninsula (north-side, looking north).

Wembley - ?

This looks like it'll be a very nice addition to the mixture of towers already in London. Just wondering on those really close-up shots - the concrete columns look extremely worn where all the surface slabs are for viewing the site I suppose. Are there plans to fix that or are they just in much better shape than they appear to be?

Wow, impressive holes. I bet that appartment which costs 250 000 £ is the lowest one.
How many millions could the penthouses cost?
