August 2019- Chambers Wharf Construction Update - Our latest information sheet for Chambers Wharf
Weekly Update- 7 October 2019
This week We continued to build the second section of the portals, consisting of fixing steel cages and formwork, ahead of concreting. The portals will be the tunnel openings at the bottom of the shaft.
We also continued to install mechanical and electrical systems and pipework for the slurry treatment plant (STP). The STP will be used to separate the material excavated during tunnelling, before it is taken away from site by barge
Permanent above ground structures
In May 2019 we submitted our application to LB Southwark for the permanent above ground structures at Chambers Wharf. These structures are ventilation columns, the electrical control kiosk and stand-alone artwork. As they are permanent, they will remain after the Tideway construction works have been completed.
Further to resident feedback, the period for comments has been extended. If you wish to comment on this application, please ensure you do so directly to LB Southwark using the link and reference number below. The closing date for comments is Friday 11 October 2019.

Continuous working will take place within the acoustic enclosure 24-hours per day, Monday to Friday. The doors of the enclosure will be closed for the night from 6pm to 7am, although there may be occasions when they are re-opened in the evening (up to 22:00) for plant movements.
Certain activities such as barge movements within the river foreshore and those that are dependent on the tide, may take place between 5am and 10pm.
Extended working hours are required for the main works to allow major concrete pours for shaft construction.
There will be approximately 33 months of 24-hour working. However, during this period activities will be predominantly below ground.
