Our Ref: FOI-0983-1718
Thank you for your request received on 24 July 2017 asking for information about the EL3 bus route.
Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy. I can confirm we do hold the information you require.
Our current understanding is that the bridge to enable the EL3 re-routeing is estimated to be available from June 2018. No changes to the EL3 are envisaged prior to the bridge opening.
We are working with the Barking Riverside developers to enable route EL1 to be extended to the school when it opens in September 2017. This will be dependent upon a suitable road being available for use and the provision of driver toilets. Bus access to the school will therefore either be via route EL1 or by interchanging from the EL3 onto the EL1.
If this is not the information you are looking for please feel free to contact me.
Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal.
