Great connections - great infrastructure
London’s best connected borough
Barking and Dagenham is at the heart of the Thames Gateway with excellent road and public transport links to central London and the rest of east London.
The borough lies midway between central London and the M25, giving easy access to markets in London, the Southeast and Europe.
The location offers the best of both worlds – the City, Canary Wharf and Stratford are all close.
The excellent national road network and Essex countryside are on the doorstep.
By 2020 the London Overground will be extended to Barking Riverside which will open the area’s potential and provide easy access to Barking for the 30,000 residents of this new River Thames location.
