Architect reveals station plans

By James Renoux-Wood - Wed 27 April 2016, 12:55 pm

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.
