Chambers Wharf

Our site at Chambers Wharf is located in Bermondsey in south east London and is within walking distance of Tower Bridge. It is famous for being home to the ‘booted man’, a medieval skeleton found during archaeological excavation works. Chambers Wharf is one of Tideway’s main drive sites, meaning that it will be used to launch our tunnel boring machine (TBM) Selina, which will travel 5km eastwards to Abbey Mills Pumping Station. It will also receive Ursula the TBM from our central site and ‘Annie’ our TBM used to form the Greenwich Connection Tunnel.

The shaft at Chambers Wharf will be more than 60 metres deep and we’ve created more than 8,000m2 of

new land in the river to allow us enough space to do our work.

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.
