The new housing development currently being built at Barking Riverside is to be added to the Thames Clipper service next year, once a new riverside pier is constructed at the site.
Thames Clippers says that it has signed a “long-term contract with Barking Riverside to open a new stop by Winter 2021 – which happens to be roughly when the Barking Riverside railway station is also currently expected to open.
The new pier will enable the boat company to extend its RB1 line, which currently stops at Woolwich Arsenal, out to Barking Riverside. That also creates a link across the Thames in an area, that unless you go in for a lengthy diversion via the DLR doesn’t have a river crossing.
One aspect of the pier that doesn’t show up in the concept image is that it’s likely to have a lengthy walkway from boat to the shoreline, as this area of the River Thames has wide mudflats and the existing industrial piers in the area have long paths to be able to reach deep enough water at low tide.
Barking and Dagenham council is contributing £600,000 in funding for this project.
The company has also indicated that it’s looking to extend the line further eastwards by 2025, having suggested Thamesmead and Belvedere as locations for the service to be extended to.
