London's £181M, 4.5km Docklands Light Railway will extend the existing line under the River Thames to Greenwich and on to Lewisham in south east London. It was one of the early flagship Private Finance Initiative schemes in the UK. The 24.5 year concession to finance, design, construct and maintain the extension was awarded to preferred bidder City Greenwich Lewisham Rail Link plc (CGL Rail) in May 1996.
