Greenwich Pumping Station

At Greenwich Pumping Station, an existing Thames Water site, we will be ‘launching’ Annie, one of our six tunnel boring machines, to create the Greenwich Connection Tunnel between Greenwich and Chambers Wharf in Bermondsey. We’re also using Deptford Creek to allow us to remove spoil from the tunnelling operation by river, keeping HGVs off the surrounding roads.

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.
