The viaduct under construction on the Barking Riverside branch has sharp curves. (Modern Railways June p76) Does anyone know the radius? Is it sharper than the curve linking the former London Broad Street line to Shoreditch station. (Thanks).

250 metres radius is mentioned near the end of the second page (77) of the article. Looks about right doing a few estimated measurements on Google satellite view. I think the Shoreditch curve is about 200m. Much easier to estimate as it’s basically a 90 degree bend…
