Thames Tideway

The Thames Tideway Tunnel is a major new sewer, urgently needed to protect the tidal River Thames from pollution. London’s sewerage system is no longer fit for purpose and spills millions of tonnes of sewage into the tidal section of the river every year. Tideway is building the tunnel to tackle the problem of overflows from the capital’s Victorian sewers for at least the next 100 years, and enable the UK to meet European environmental standards. The number of Combined Sewer Overflows (CSO) is currently 24M tonnes of sewage into the Thames, every year. The Tideway Project is 25km of storage / transfer tunnel, combining the above CSOs. The tunnel begins in the west of London in Acton and continues to Stratford in the east. The tunnel follows the river Thames, running from Hammersmith to downstream of Tower Bridge.

The Thames Tideway Tunnel project is divided into three different construction zones, West, Central and East. The contract value for the three zones are as follows:

–            West zone: £300-£500m

–            Central zone: £600-950m

–            East zone: £500-£800m
