Barhale has secured a contract of designing and building Barking Riverside train station, London.

This new London Overground station will give its service to over 10,000 new homes in East London.

The station is scheduled to open later this year.

Barhale has been appointed by Barking Riverside Limited (BRL) for installing a new foul water pumping station at the terminus.

This terminus is a part of the £260m extension of the Gospel Oak to Barking Overground Line.

BRL is the joint venture between L&Q and the Mayor of London in leading the mixed-use scheme Barking Riverside.

The Barking Riverside scheme will regenerate the 443-acre brownfield site, which earlier accommodated the former Barking Power Station.

Barhale and its design partner Nicholas O’Dwyer will enter into a three-months design phase before the actual construction begins.

The actual construction is scheduled to start in May.

The programme will also feature laying a linking length of foul sewer to a new rising main and the drainage within the pump station so that the incoming sewer can be linked to the inlet chamber and to a new emergency storage.

Barhale regional manager Daniel Meadowcroft said: “Barking Riverside is a hugely important project to help build the transport infrastructure for a new community in East London. We are very excited to be playing a part.”
