Access to the Thames Barrier Park
The Pontoon Dock development involves the redevelopment of a car park site; it does not involve any redevelopment of the Thames Barrier Park itself. The park and café will remain open during construction with pedestrian access from the North Woolwich Road by the staircase at Barrier Point Road (on the west side of the park) and step-free access through Waterside Park (on the east side of the park). See plan adjacent/below.
Coaches taking visitors to the Park will be able to park on newly dedicated coach bays along the North Woolwich Road.
The Pontoon Dock DLR station will also remain open during construction.
