These two areas will be connected via a pipe constructed under the foreshore. The shaft is required to transfer sewage flows from the combined sewer overflows to the main tunnel.
Once construction is complete there will be new public space extending into the foreshore providing a new area of foreshore for Londoners to enjoy the river Thames. Following the end of our works, the Thames path will also be reinstated.
Diversion at Albert Embankment
To facilitate our construction at Albert Embankment we have diverted the Thames path at this location. During this time pedestrians are required to use the footpath along the main road rather than the riverside route between Vauxhall Bridge and Tintagel House. The new route is well signposted and clearly marked.
Access to the Foreshore
Our works require us to stop access to the River Thames foreshore next to Camelford House, known as 'Lack's Dock'. Although access to this area has always been private, there is now a physical barrier in place to prevent access to an active construction site. If you require access to the foreshore, please call us on 08000 30 80 80 for more information.
