The New And Unusual Way Commuters Will Be Able To Get To Canary Wharf And Central London

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on MyLondon.

The image shows a Thames Clipper at Greenwich Pier.

A new pier for Thames Clippers is to be built at Barking Riverside, close to the new Barking Riverside station.

This will create a whole series of new routes to the East of Canary Wharf, Greenwich and the Thames Barrier.


I think the new pier will also be good for tourists, just as much as commuters.

I shall certainly use it to show visitors, the historic sites of the Thames.

It’s also good to see the Thames Clippers getting integrated with London’s more traditional public transport.

  1. Given the lack of river crossings in east London then adding more destinations and piers and extending Thames Clipper services downstream can only open up more of east
    London and maybe piers and crossings in Essex and Kent might follow!

    Clippers give a wonderful ride and have the benefits of selling food and drinks on board including alcohol based drinks like a gin and tonic something you don’t get on C2C or Southeastern Railways!

    We hear loads of fuss about Hammersmith bridge but downstream of Tower Bridge crossings are rare and far apart unlike in spoilt west London.
