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.
Yes, the super sewer will prevent millions of tonnes of sewage entering the river each year – with all the ecological and health benefits that will bring.
But we’re going far beyond simply building a tunnel.
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 using the river to transport material on an unprecedented scale, bringing jobs and recreation back to the river.
Beyond that, our investment in local communities, education, training and the supply chain will ensure that the legacy of the Tideway project will be profound and long-lasting, far outliving the construction of the super sewer.
Keeping everyone working on the project safe, healthy and happy is a fundamental philosophy at Tideway
– we do things safely, or not at all.
