London to get new station this summer – and it’s actually opening early
The Metro says a new Overground station will be added to Transport for London’s network earlier than originally planned.
Barking Riverside, which is in east London in Zone 4, first appeared on the Tube map last month.
The station was due to start offering Overground services in the autumn, but ‘good progress’ has meant the station will open earlier in the summer.
Residents may have already spotted trains moving between the step-free station and Barking, as driver and route testing began in May.
