Just west of Putney Bridge is our site at Putney Embankment Foreshore where we’ll be creating a beautiful new piece of public land in the river. We’ve also created a temporary slipway here to retain access to the river during our work for river-users, and are now into the main works, which, when completed, should reduce the average number of yearly discharges from 33 to just one.

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.
