Consultation Feedback for Barking Riverside released

In autumn 2014 Transport for London (TfL) conducted a public consultation on the principle of an extension of the London Overground to the Barking Riverside development. The consultation ran from 8 September to 19 October. Thank you to all those people and organisations who provided feedback during the consultation. We received 714 responses, with 90% of people saying they supported an extension in principal. A report (updated on 29 January 2015 to include 5 new responses in Section 6: Responses from stakeholders) is available below, together with our response to key issues raised:

What Happens Next

TfL will consider the responses to the consultation while we progress the scheme to the next stage. We anticipate a second round of public consultation on different scheme options in the spring of 2015, at which point we will also explain why alternative transport proposals have been not taken forward. Depending on the progress of the scheme’s design, which will consider the outcome of the spring 2015 consultation, a third round of public consultation may be necessary before making any application for powers to build and operate a railway extension through a Transport and Works Act Order
