There were plans for three DLR stations, so is one London Overground station at the Barking Riverside district centre enough for the whole housing estate?

Good transport links to Barking Riverside are critical to facilitating and supporting the proposed housing and associated development. The Overground extension from Barking to Barking Riverside enables development in Barking Riverside through the provision of a fast north/south link to Barking Station connecting into central London and the wider network via the Hammersmith & City and District lines, C2C services, London Overground and local bus services.  The new Overground station will have connections by bus and facilities for pedestrians and cyclists to allow access to the station throughout the whole development.
