Bidders sought for £150M rail extension

Barking riverside

Rail for London is seeking bidders for a contract worth between £120M and £150M to build the Barking Riverside Rail Extension and new terminus station.

The contract will be for the construction of an elevated extension to an existing railway line and a new terminus station at Barking Riverside, including modification of an existing Network Rail line. It is part of a wider regeneration of the area which will include more than 10,000 new homes.

The proposed new 1.5km railway extension will go from Renwick Road overbridge to the new terminus. The works will entail the construction of an embankment ramp up to a new concrete viaduct which will support a two-track 1.5km railway extension and a new terminus.

Whoever wins the bid will be involved in the detailed design of the scheme. The masterplan for the whole area has been designed by Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands.
