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.

Character areas and display boards

To explain the proposals we have created an illustrative masterplan, which has been divided into the following sections. Click on each Character Area to see our plans.

Character Area 1 - Canning Town (from Canning Town Station up to Nelson St)

Character Area 2 - Silvertown Way Viaduct (from Nelson St up to Britannia Gate)

Character Area 3 - Britannia Village (from Britannia Gate up to Admiralty Ave)

Character Area 4 - New Neighbourhoods (from Admiralty Ave up to Connaught Bridge)

The display boards, which can be viewed here, provide an overview of the scheme and its objectives. These will also be on display at the public event at the Thames Barrier Park, next to the café.(details in the Public Events tab).

    As part of the consultation what non digital / online publicity is being undertaken to encourage engagement / participation of local residents and business ? Has publicity benn distributed door to door to local residents and business or placed in locations used by residents and business?

    John Johnson asked 12 months ago

    An A5 leaflet was distributed in the local on 30th & 31st of July to almost 20,000 addresses. This leaflet included an overview of the scheme and it objectives, information on how to share views and details on public events. This leaflet also included a large print note on the back with contact details for any special requests for engagement material. A face to face public engagement event also took place on 14th July at Thames Barrier Park, where all the project proposal material was available, and council staff present to explain the proposals and respond to any questions.

    With the new tunnel how will silvertown way be prevented from becoming a rat run to get to the A13 at Beckton?

    Chris@fairfax asked 12 months ago

    Newham scheme will be completed before the opening of the Silvertown Tunnel. It is therefore agreed with Transport for London (TfL) who will be building the tunnel that Silvertown Way and North Woolwich Road will not have to take traffic volume from the tunnel. It is TfL’s responsibility to make sure adequate mitigation measures are put in when the tunnel project is implemented to divert traffic through the Lower Lea Crossing and A13

    What are the average and minimum widths of the cycle tracks? What growth in cycling levels have you designed for? Does this include assumptions for growth in usage by e-scooters, which may London boroughs are now opening their cycle tracks to?

    R Ider asked 12 months ago
    • Cycle lanes are bi-directional and each lane will have a minimum of 2.0m width.
    • The proposals have been designed to accommodate significant growth in cycling, recognising that the corridor was identified as a ‘medium’ potential connection for growth in cycling across London in the Transport for London (TfL) Strategic Cycling Analysis (TfL, 2017) and the continued significant growth in population.
    • To the best of the knowledge of design team, no formal guidance on design for the environment for e-scooters has been published by Transport for London or the Department for Transport, though guidance is expected to published following the current trials.  It is expected that the design principles from the London Cycling Design Standards (TfL, 2016) and the Local Transport Note 1/20 will be applicable as design standards for e-scooters given the similar design characteristics to e-assist bicycles.

    How will these propsals link in with the Silvertown Road Tunnel, proposed cycling/walking bus for the Silvertown Road Tunnel, and the existing cycle infrastructure on the Lower Lea Crossing and Dock Road?

    Alex Ingram asked 11 months ago

    Newham is working with Transport for London (TfL) who  will be delivering Silvertown Tunnel  project on the interfacing of these projects. Both designs will be linked up on Dock Road and Tidal Basin Roundabout through to Lower Lea Crossing and beyond. Regular meetings are held with TfL and their design team to make sure proper cycle / pedestrian / bus links are established between the two projects
