A new bridge to connect Silvertown with Crossrail’s Custom House station is one of the features of a £3.5bn redevelopment plan for London’s Royal Docks.
The Silvertown Quays scheme will see the 25ha derelict site turned into a new “innovation and commercial quarter”.
The plans have been unveiled by Silvertown Partnership, which was appointed by London Mayor Boris Johnson to develop the site in June 2013.
The development will include 3,000 new homes, cafés, restaurants, and commercial space, as well as the new bridge.
Sir Stuart Lipton of The Silvertown Partnership said: “Silvertown Quays represents the next wave of change in east London and the momentum behind it is building.
“We look forward to continuing to work in partnership with the GLA, Newham and the local residents and businesses to create this exciting new piece of London.”
