Acton Storm Tanks

Site information

Acton Storm Tanks is an existing Thames Water pumping station and storm water tanks site. The surrounding area is predominantly residential, industrial and mixed-use. The site would be used to receive the main tunnel from Carnwath Road Riverside as well as intercept the existing Acton Storm Relief combined sewer overflow.

In June 2019, the team successfully excavated to the bottom of the shaft, which is 33m deep. The team completed the base plug pour in July 2019. The base plug pour is when concrete is continuously poured to the required amount, which will help support the shaft when tunnelling.

Over the next few months the site team will prepare the site for the construction of the Interception Chamber and be ready for the next phase.

For more information, look at the latest CLWG presentation on the tab below.

Our standard working hours are (with a 1-hour mobilisation period before and after these times):

  • Monday – Friday: 8am – 6pm

  • Saturday: 8am – 12 midday

Additionally, we have maintenance periods on the weekend:

  • Saturday: 1 – 5pm

  • Sunday: 10am – 4pm

We will be working 24-hours a day for approximately seven months. This will be taking place predominantly underground as we construct our tunnel.

On average, we have approximately seven heavy goods vehicles accessing the site. More up to date information about the vehicle movements can be found within the CLWG presentations.

The next Acton Storm Tanks CLWG will be on Tuesday 10 September, 7-9pm, at the 14th Acton Scout Group (Rugby Road, Chiswick, London W4 1AT).
