Our Legacy

Tideway’s main environmental legacy will be a cleaner River Thames – but we are delivering a wider impact, too. 

As well as completing the tunnel below ground to deliver a long-term environmental benefit, we have been creating wider social impacts above ground. These include using the Thames to transport material on an unprecedented scale, bringing jobs and skills back to the river and supporting safer and greener transportation methods; supporting our communities through employment and through partnerships with local organisations; and creating new public spaces in the Thames – the first new land in London for generations.

Learn about the project’s wider impact by reading our latest Sustainability Report, checking out the dedicated sub-pages on Our Community, Open Spaces and others, or clicking on the five legacy theme buttons in the graphic below.
