Acton Storm Tanks, the western-most site on the Tideway project, is an existing Thames Water site, incorporating a pumping station and six storm tanks. This is also where Rachel, one of our six tunnel boring machines (TBMs), will completes its journey after tunnelling 7km from Carnwath Road in Fulham.

Reconnecting London with the River Thames

London relies on a 150-year-old sewer system built for a population less than half its current size. As a result, millions of tonnes of raw sewage spills, untreated, into the River Thames each year. 

That’s where we come in.  

We’re building a 25km Super Sewer under the Thames to intercept those nasty spills and clean up our river for the good of the city, its wildlife and you.
