Question

Will you investigate the possibility of a London Overground station where the C2C line passes under the A13 dual carriageway, half-way between Barking and Riverside stations? This would be accessible from disadvantaged communities on both sides of the A13, linking them on foot for the first time.

The area northwest of Barking Riverside where the proposed Overground extension will run through has low public transport accessibility levels (PTAL) and high levels of deprivation and a new station at this location could greatly benefit existing residents. TfL will be undertaking a review of the business case for an intermediate station at this location including costs, affordability and overall feasibility. Subject to this business case provision could be made for a second station to be delivered in the future.
