Update on RVD Footbridge – August 2019

The Royal Victoria Dock (RVD) Footbridge is a high-level bridge which bisects RVD and provides a route from Excel (close to the DLR Custom House Station) over to Britannia Village. It had two lifts that were installed at each end of the bridge.  These lifts were poorly designed for the situation.  The top of the lifts are open to the elements and should have been fully enclosed.  This has caused numerous issues over the years.  The lifts are now beyond their economic life and have real reliability issues, regardless of the sums of money which are spent on them. RoDMA are responsible for the maintenance and refurbishment of the RVD Footbridge, but not capital replacement of items such as the lifts. In 2014 it was announced that the developer for the Silvertown Quays (Millennium Mills) had included in their design a new bridge at dock level to cross RVD from the same location on the Excel side to link up with the new development and provide direct access from the planned Crossrail Station.  The intention was to have an opening (swing bridge) mechanism to allow ships to pass into the western end of RVD.  The plan was that the high-level bridge would then be removed.  At this point it was decided that no further options would be considered for replacement of the lifts and that their life would be extended until the new bridge was constructed.  This was delayed when the investor pulled out of the development but was recommenced by the new developer in 2018. In 2016 a decision was made to reduce the number of operating lifts...

Predator Adventures

STATEMENT FROM RODMA On 28 January RoDMA gave one months’ notice to Predator Adventures to terminate its operation in the Royal Docks.  This was for various reasons, but ultimately after a year of Predator Adventures operating in the Docks it became clear that the negative impact of their operation on RoDMA, other licensed water users and residents far outweighed the positives.  Following termination, this gave them up until the 28th of February to either honour bookings for the month or reimburse customers. It is now apparent that Predator Adventures have ceased operating in the Docks completely, so we would advise that you do not arrive at Royal Victoria Dock for your Seabreacher experience and instead contact them on info@predatoradventures.com to discuss rebooking with them or claiming your money back. Please note that RoDMA are a separate organisation and are unable to help you with your cancelled booking or to receive reimbursement.   Many thanks, Royal Docks Management Authority Ltd....
