More commonly referred to as London’s ‘super sewer’ the 25km tunnel is a vital infrastructure project that will modernise London’s ageing sewage system and dramatically improve the environment by preventing millions of tonnes of sewage overflowing into the river each year.
To accommodate the tunnel shafts there will be seven new landscaped areas built over the river. The sites are situated at Chelsea, Albert, Victoria and Putney Embankments, as well as at Blackfriars Bridge, King Edward Memorial Park and Heathwall Pumping Station.
