Atkins and Grimshaw to create Barking transport masterplan

  • Comment

Atkins and Grimshaw Architects are to work together to draw up a masterplan for a new transport hub in Barking town centre, East London.

More than 30,000 people pass through Barking station each day, and the new interchange will provide better facilities as well as increase capacity to deal with the 9,000 new homes planned for around the station area.

According to the London Thames Gateway Development Corporation (LTGDC), providing fast and easy connections to London is central to the successful regeneration of the area.

LTGDC chief executive Peter Andrews said: ‘A new and improved transport interchange is vital to the success of this programme and we’re pleased to have taken this positive step. The interchange will increase capacity and improve connectivity at the station to allow better access to central London for Barking and the surrounding communities.

‘Effective transport links will not only have a significant influence on the purchasing decision for people looking for new homes, they will also help to secure the commercial investment required to stimulate economic growth in the area.’
