Royal Docks Corridor

Newham Council, in partnership with the Royal Docks Team (a joint initiative from the Mayor of London and the Mayor of Newham) is improving 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.

These roads were originally constructed to accommodate commercial and industrial vehicle traffic to serve the historic uses of the Royal Docks. With the Royal Docks Enterprise Zone, a designated area that provides tax breaks and other business incentives to attract foreign investment, 60,000 new jobs and 25,500 new homes are forecast in the wider area. The Royal Docks Corridor, which runs along the south-west boundary of the Enterprise Zone, is integral to the growth of the area. The Royal Docks Corridor project will provide a general uplift by creating new public spaces, wider pavements, separated cycle lanes, better crossings and connections to local destinations, and more greenery and planting. These changes aim to create safe and attractive streets for everyone to enjoy, improving air quality, and encouraging people to be more active and healthy.
