King George’s Park

Site information

The King George’s Park site encompasses a small part of the northern end of the park, adjacent to the entrance from Buckhold Road and the junction of Buckhold Road and Neville Gill Close. The site will be used to connect the existing Frogmore Storm Relief–Buckhold Road combined sewer overflow, to the main tunnel via the Frogmore connection tunnel.

King George’s Park

In October, King George's Park met the biggest milestone yet for the whole Tideway Project.

Charlotte, the Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM) creating the Frogmore Connection Tunnel, broke through into the shaft, thus completing half of her journey.

You can read about the break through here.

The site team are now preparing Charlotte to be lifted and driven back over to Dormay Street, where she will complete the tunnel towards our Carnwath Road Riverside site.

Piling Work
In October we will start to insert sheet piles into the ground surrounding the central section of the combined sewer overflow (CSO) concrete pipe, prior to its removal.

  • Hoarding has been erected along the site boundary

  • The contractor is protecting the trees, in particular the Black Poplar tree along the boundary with Neville Gill Close and the Red Oak tree at the northern edge of the park

  • The site area will be returned to public use as soon as practicable, including potential phasing

  • Set limits to control activities, such as noise (Section 61 approval) from LB Wandsworth
