The Barking Riverside Extension Transport and Works Act Order Public Inquiry
TRANSPORT & WORKS ACT 1992: PROPOSED TRANSPORT FOR LONDON ( LONDON OVERGROUND BARKING RIVERSIDE EXTENSION ORDER )
TOWN & COUNTRY PLANNING ACT 1990: REQUEST FOR DEEMED PLANNING PERMISSION
Proposal: The proposed order, if made, would authorise Transport for London to construct and maintain an extension to the London Overground Gospel Oak to Barking line from Barking station to a new station at Barking Riverside in the London Borough of Barking & Dagenham.
The proposed development comprises construction of a new section of railway and remodelling existing tracks which form part of Network Rail’s Essex Thameside (Tilbury Loop) Line. The new section would commence at a junction with that line and be built partly on a viaduct passing below the bridge at Renwick road before rising and turning south to pass over existing Network Rail tracks and Choat Road to access a new elevated terminus station at Barking Riverside.
The proposed Order would authorise compulsory acquisition and temporary use of land, temporary and permanent stopping of streets and ancillary matters. And in connection with the application a direction is sought under section 90(2A) of the Town & Country Planning Act 1990.
