Wikipedia tells us about the DLR system:

"The Docklands Light Railway (the DLR) is an automated light metro or light rail system opened in 1987 to serve the redeveloped Docklands area of London. It reaches north to Stratford, south to Lewisham, west to Tower Gateway and Bank in the City of London financial district, and east to Beckton, London City Airport and Woolwich Arsenal.

The system is not entirely unmanned: it uses minimal staffing on board trains and at major interchange stations; the 4 sub-surface stations are staffed to comply with underground station requirements. Similar proposals have been made for the adjacent system, the Tube.

The DLR is operated under a concession awarded by Transport for London to Serco Docklands, part of the Serco Group. The system is owned by Docklands Light Rail Limited,[7] part of the London Rail division of Transport for London. In 2011 the DLR carried over 86 million passengers. It has been extended several times and further extensions are being planned."

Wikipedia tells us:

"Cyprus DLR station is a station on the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) located in Cyprus, to the south of Beckton, in the Docklands area of Newham, east London. The station serves the University of East London Docklands Campus and the eastern end of the north quay of the Royal Albert Dock.

The station is located on the DLR's Beckton branch, between Beckton Park and Gallions Reach stations. It is in Travelcard Zone 3.

Along with Beckton Park, Cyprus station is of an unusual design. Between the two stations, the DLR runs in the median of a major road built at the same time as the railway. The stations are located at highway intersections which take the form of roundabouts. On the approach to the roundabout, the road rises slightly whilst the railway dips slightly; the station is therefore situated in a cutting, under the centre of the elevated roundabout, with pedestrian access at surface level under the elevated roadways and arched over the railway.
