Canary Wharf tube station closed after “smoke on platforms”

Canary Wharf station has been closed this morning after “smoke” reportedly appeared on platforms.

TfL state the issue was in fact dust from tunnels blown into platforms due to a faulty fan. Canada Water station was also briefly closed.

The line has recently been operating a reduced service due to train faults discovered a couple of weeks ago.

10:00 Update: The station has now reopened.

As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.

    There was a fair bit of smoke at North Greenwich too around 9am, though the station remained open. I’m glad I read this I was genuinely thinking my eyesight had worsened
