A timelapse video has captured the £164 million transformation of a Barking estate over the last four years.

The video, made by construction company Willmott Dixon, showcases the rejuvenation of the 1960s-built Gascoigne East into an environmentally friendly residential zone with new homes and recreational spaces.

Willmott Dixon director Steve Kitchen said: "The video is a testament to the huge amount of work that’s gone into transforming a large 1960s-era residential area into a beautiful and vibrant new community.

"It’s four years of hard work condensed into a fraction of the time, bringing the project to life in a truly impactful way."

The regeneration resulted in 434 new homes, six retail units, and a vast park and play area, featuring a climbing wall and greenery.

Tim Porter, director of delivery at Barking and Dagenham Council's housing company Be First, said: "This video brings to life the progress we’ve made across this phase of the Gascoigne neighbourhood since we began the regeneration project in 2019.

"This project is part of our wider commitment to build 50,000 new homes by 2037 across the borough."

Beyond the transformation, Willmott Dixon has dedicated 1,399 hours to help unemployed young people into work in Barking and Dagenham.
