Barking Riverside




52 weeks

Construction of a pedestrian pier and pontoon for the new Barking Riverside development.

A brand-new neighbourhood of over 10,000 homes built alongside a 2km River Thames frontage.

Works included the fabrication and installation of the new pontoon to accommodate the Uber Boat by Thames Clipper river buses.

We also installed two pontoon guide piles, as well as two additional mooring piles alongside the pontoon.

The pontoon, canting brow and bankseat were fabricated by Ravestien at their facility in Holland.


Once completed, the pontoon and 65m link span bridge were loaded onto a transport crane barge for the North Sea crossing and further transit up the Thames. We then positioned the crane barge alongside the structure, and each element lifted into a position where it was fixed in place.

Thereafter, we completed the installation of services, ballasting, testing and commissioning.

Following the completion of the pontoon and jetty, we undertook fencing and landscaping works.

We also carried out the installation of the pedestrian/cycle path.
