As one of the smallest sites on the Tideway project, this unassuming building is responsible for around half a million tonnes of raw sewage polluting the River Thames every year. Working alongside the 1940s functioning pumping station, we will be connecting this site to the Greenwich connection tunnel which will pass below, and take the sewage into the super sewer and away for treatment.

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.
