Thames Road sits at the industrial heart of the borough of Barking and Dagenham. Its industries provide vital services to the capital, and hundreds of jobs for local residents.
The road also sits at the entrance to Barking Riverside, which is an exciting new residential neighbourhood running down to the River Thames. Our long term ambition is to improve the environment and access to Barking Riverside, and to join this new community more effectively to the residential communities to the north.
We plan to develop projects along Thames Road which will maintain the area as a centre for jobs and business, but also improve the environment and deliver much-needed new homes for local people.
