Levelling Up Bid Success for Dagenham Heathway

In June 2022 Jon Cruddas MP supported the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham in their round two levelling up bid “Up the Heathway” seeking funds to transform Dagenham Heathway. This week the Department for Levelling Up, Housing & Communities confirmed that the bid had been successful, and the council had been awarded £10,883,068 for the project.

Beam Park Station Update

Following last week's revelations which highlighted the Government had pulled funding for a new station on the Beam Park development site, Jon Cruddas MP has now learned that the proposed new c2c station was fully funded by the Greater London Authority and developers. In addition to the construction, the GLA and London Mayor's office had also offered the Department of Transport £10million to protect the Government against the cost of operational deficit for the first 10 years.
