Hammersmith Pumping Station
Following a pause as part of our response to the COVID-19 outbreak, we have resumed some works at our Hammersmith Pumping Station site. We have introduced several additional precautions so that our team can do this work safely to continue building the super sewer.
At our Hammersmith Pumping Station site, the connection tunnel from the site to the point where it will meet the main tunnel, was completed in 2019. Autumn 2019 saw the site complete the secondary lining of the connection tunnel. The first for the whole project! The secondary lining secures and strengthens the tunnel, before the joining the main Super Sewer.
Earlier this year the site team completed the secondary lining of the shaft. Our Hammersmith site are continuing work inside the Interception Chamber.
As we approach the next phase of our works at our Hammersmith Pumping Station site, on Tuesday 26 May, at approximately 06:00, a large crane and lorry will arrive at site.
