What we're working on in Newham

Work now going on in your borough includes:

  • Silvertown Tunnel - a new road tunnel under the Thames will relieve congestion at the Blackwall Tunnel
  • Elizabeth line - coming to Stratford, Maryland, Forest Gate and Manor Park. Some of these stations already benefit from the Crossrail Complimentary Measures programme
  • Replacement DLR trains - we're buying a new fleet of walk-through DLR trains

Bus network changes

From time to time - after consulting the public - we alter bus routes to reflect changing patterns in demand. We also make temporary changes, often because of road works. See the latest bus changes.

Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ)

To improve air quality the ULEZ will extend to parts of Newham from October 2021.
