Thank you for your interest in this project. Engagement for this is now closed. Further information will follow in due course.


Royal Docks Corridor

Newham Council, in partnership with the Royal Docks Team, has prepared proposals to change the road layout and street environment along the Royal Docks Corridor, which includes Silvertown Way and the section of North Woolwich Road up to Connaught Bridge.

The current road layout is dominated by vehicles, and is not suitable or attractive for the growing residential and business community in this area. Therefore, our proposals aim to create people-friendly streets by reducing traffic volumes and speeds, and as a result making it easier, safer and more convenient to get around by foot, bike and public transport.

The scheme will provide a general uplift to the area by creating new public spaces, wider pavements, separated cycle lanes, better crossings and connections to local destinations, and more greenery and planting. These changes will make it more enjoyable for everyone to spend time in their local area, encourage people to be more active and healthy, and help improve local air quality.

Due to the scale of the scheme, and to minimise disruption for the local community, the works will be delivered in phases from late 2021 until summer 2024. This is subject to all the necessary approvals and the public consultation response.
