Our Legacy

The scale of the Tideway project and its place at the heart of one of the world’s greatest cities means we have an historic opportunity to leave a positive, lasting legacy for London.

We have made more than 50 legacy commitments and many of them will be profound and long-lasting. We’re creating new public spaces in the Thames – the first new land in London for generations; we’re raising the bar for health, safety and wellbeing in the construction industry; and we are using the river to transport material on an unprecedented scale, bringing jobs and skills back to the river.
