It’s always a shame to have to lock threads of interesting topics, however, I think this thread has run its course. Can members please think what they are going to say before they post. What is the point in strirring it. Whether we like it or not, if we disagree with a member that strongly, maybe it’s best left unsaid.
I also read today that TfL will be providing a Pier at Barking Riverside and I also read that Thames Clippers will be trialing a service from Gravesend in the morning and returning in the evening so there is potential here for a useful interchange at Barking Riverside.
I understand that some of the viaduct is considered disposable if an extension under the Thames occurs. What effect would it have on Barking Riverside station? Is the station right at the end of the viaduct or does it continue slightly further for a pair of sidings?
