Once the electrification works are complete and the new electric trains have been delivered, the line will be able to operate four-car trains, doubling capacity from the current diesel fleet made up of only two-car services.

Currently, there are no plans to change the frequency of the service. However, once the Barking Riverside extension is complete, TfL is considering introducing five trains per hour using the bay platform at Barking.
