Due to the nature of the site’s soil make up, Tideway had to treat the land within the site compound, an essential task that had to be completed prior to works beginning. This required us to decontaminate the soil and prepare it for the creation of the connection shaft which will join the existing sewer system to the new tunnel.
We are now in the process of creating the connection shaft which will join the pumping station to the new connection tunnel which will run underneath the site. This requires us to build the walls of the shaft before excavation of the shaft can begin.
Earl Pumping Station
October 2018 - Shaft Wall Construction
From mid-October, we will begin the construction of the diaphragm walls of the shaft. This will involve digging out 60-meter deep panels.
