Moxon submits plans for new east London station

  • Comment

Moxon Architects has lodged plans for a railway station at Barking Riverside, a burgeoning suburb in east London 

Due to complete in 2021, the new terminus will sit at the end of a 1.6km viaduct and extend the existing London Overground services which currently stop at Barking station.

Project backer Transport for London - who appointed Moxon - submitted an application for a Transport and Works Act Order for the wider scheme at the end of last month.

If approved by government the order will authorise the construction and compulsory purchase powers needed for acquiring land and property interests. The draft order includes a planning application for both the railway line extension and the new station.

Boris Johnson, the soon-to-depart London mayor, has already given his support to the project which will eventually serve an 11,000-strong community. The regeneration of the former Barking Power Station site is being billed as the ’largest housing development in east London’ and includes a 1,400-home first phase designed by Sheppard Robson.  

According to the Moxon Architects, the terminus is ’envisaged as a series of stainless steel panels that transition from solid to perforated, designed to accentuate the deceleration of approaching trains’.

The scheme also features secure bike storage and shops looking onto a new public square.

Moxon director, Tim Murray, said: ’Barking Riverside provides us with a rare opportunity, to create an entirely new terminus for a new neighbourhood in London. By incorporating public space, this station will provide for people moving to a contemporary piece of the capital.’
