Our Acton Storm Tanks site is where the super sewer begins on the western section of the Tideway project.
Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM) Rachel finished tunnelling the western 7km section of the super sewer after breaking into the shaft at Tideway’s site in Acton in September 2020. TBM Rachel first arrived in London in November 2017 and began tunnelling in May 2019.
The team are currently constructing the structures required for the sewer to operate and installing the electrical and mechanical equipment. We are also undertaking planting and landscaping work.
