Barking Barrier Lifting Bridges

Barking and Dagenham

Pair of lifting bridges for pedestrians and cyclists over the River Roding in two phases, and a new Thames riverside park. Bridges lightly ‘piggyback’ on foundations of the iconic Barking Barrier, significantly reducing costs to enhance viability, while strengthening local visibility and orientation.
