Barking Barrier Lifting Bridges
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.

- .“We already have a creative community along the river and with a bridge we can build on this. We can make it a buzzing embankment with bars, leisure attractions and quality affordable homes — a kind of Roding Riviera."
- Councillor Darren Rodwell - Council Leader for London Borough of Barking and Dagenham
