Answered By: 
The Mayor

The current proposal includes one new station at Barking Riverside.  Including a second station at Renwick Road would be complex in engineering terms and add to the cost of the project.  The first phase is to secure Government backing and funding for the extension with a single station at Barking Riverside, which will enable up to 11,000 homes to be delivered across the Barking Riverside site.
