Tideway’s construction work at Dormay Street is now substantially complete.
Dormay Street sits between the King George’s Park and Carnwath Road Riverside and was being used to connect the existing local combined sewer overflow (CSO) to the main tunnel. Here, Charlotte, one of the six Tideway tunnel boring machines (TBMs) was launched and completed the construction of the Frogmore Connection Tunnel – the connection between King George’s Park to Carnwath Road, linking sewer overflows into the main tunnel.
At our Dormay Street site we have:
Built a 1.1km long, connection tunnel at a depth of 25m and 2.6m in diameter, that links our sites at King George’s Park and Dormay Street to the main sewer tunnel at Fulham.
Constructed interception and valve chambers, an air treatment chamber and excavated a 25m deep shaft with a 12m diameter to intercept local sewage overflows
Commissioned Yemi Awosile to create a series of artworks that sit within Bell Lane Creek, off the River Wandle
Constructed a mechanical and electrical kiosk including installation of the equipment to help the system run smoothly
Although construction work is mostly complete, you may continue to see some Tideway staff as we work to bring the super sewer into operation.
