Architect reveals station plans

Moxon Architects has put design plans for Barking Riverside station out to public consultation.

The group was selected by Transport for London to develop proposals for the station terminus. A Transport and Works Order for the wider scheme was issued at the end of March. 

The terminus will sit at the end of a 1.6km viaduct and extend the existing London Overground service from Gospel Oak into the Barking Riverside scheme. Services currently stop at Barking. 

Moxon director Tim Murray said: "Barking Riverside provides us with a rare opportunity to create an entirely new terminus for a new neighbourhood in London.

"By incorporating public space this station will provide for people moving to a contemporary piece of the capital."

Barking Riverside is a 10,800-home project by the Greater London Authority and housing association London & Quadrant, which is also helping to fund the overground extension.
