The Anonymous Widower

Following The Barking Riverside Extension – 20th January 2022

I took this route at Barking Riverside.

  • Took a train from from Barking station to Dagenham Dock station.
  • Took an EL3 bus to Stern Close.
  • Walked to Barking Riverside station.
  • Took an EL1 bus to Ilford station.

These are the pictures I took.

It seems to be substantially finished and an Autumn 2022 opening should be possible.

Dagenham Dock Railway Station

After visiting the Land Of The Giants, my EL2 bus went through the industrial area to Dagenham Dock station.

A few points.

  • The area is rather bleak.
  • From the station I caught one of the two trains per hour into London.
  • Dagenham Dock and the other two stations of Renwick Road and Barking Riverside will need to have a decent bus connection.

It certainly needs substantial improvement.
