New Community Centre at the World's End Estate

Tideway's Central team has donated money from its community investment fund to the new Big Local Community Centre, in the World’s End Estate in Kensington and Chelsea. This has secured the building’s lease for the next three years, extending its capability to deliver valuable community projects and services. The new Centre was opened by local Councillor Gerard Hargreaves who is also Chair of the Tideway Community Liaison Working Group.

What are our working hours?

Standard working hours are 8am to 6pm Monday-Friday and 8am-1pm Saturday.  Also, there is a 1 hour mobilisation period before and after the Standard Working Hours, plus maintenance periods on Saturday 1-5pm and Sundays 10am-4pm.

Later in the project there will be some 24-hour working, however this will be underground.

How are we using the river?

We have committed to using river transport as much as possible to reduce the number of heavy goods vehicles on the roads.

At Cremorne Wharf Depot we anticipate an average of one barge movement per day, subject to the tides, with each barge taking approximately 20 heavy goods vehicles off the road.

An anticipated daily average of five heavy goods vehicles will access the site. This will rise to approximately 12 per day over an estimated six-month period during the peak of construction.
