Councillors have approved plans to build a new station entrance and footbridge in Custom House for Crossrail.
Tunnelling began on the Victoria Dock Portal in February but Newham Council approved the next stage in the cross-London high-speed rail project on Tuesday (July 16).
The new station complex, on the junction of Freemasons Road and Victoria Dock Road, will create a public route to ExCeL London and the Royal Docks including a lift to provide disabled access to Crossrail and the DLR.
Space for a small shop has also been approved as part of the station entrance.
Cllr Conor McAuley, chairman of the Strategic Development Committee, said: “This is an important step forward for Custom House and the Crossrail development.
