Tideway are upgrading London’s sewerage system to cope with the demands of the city well into the 22nd century.
After years of study, construction work is underway for the new 25 kilometre interception, storage and transfer tunnel running up to 66 metres below the river, known as the Tideway Tunnel.
Starting in west London, the main tunnel generally follows the route of the River Thames to Limehouse, where it then continues north-east to Abbey Mills Pumping Station near Stratford. There it will be connected to the Lee Tunnel, which will transfer the sewage to Beckton Sewage Treatment Works.
Built from three main construction drive sites in Fulham, Battersea and Southwark, the Thames Tideway Tunnel is expected to take up to seven years to build, at a cost of £4.2 billion (2014 prices). It will require the use of 24 construction sites, 11 of which are located along the river bank.
