Tideway has used the river to float new offices to Fulham, in preparation for the start of construction work on the Thames Tideway Tunnel.
They arrived at Carnwath Road Riverside this week with the help of Tideway’s newest recruits, two specially-commissioned tug boats, Felix and Christian, following a thirty-mile trip up river from Tilbury.
Felix and Christian will deliver materials to and from the site near Wandsworth Bridge, one of 24 being used to build the Thames Tideway Tunnel – a 25km ‘super sewer’ urgently required to tackle the discharges of millions of tonnes of untreated sewage that currently pollute the River Thames every year.
The arrival of the first load of cabins on Wednesday, September 14, marked the imminent start of construction in west London. The Tideway project will create more than 4,000 direct and sustainable jobs and will be the biggest infrastructure project the UK water industry has ever undertaken.
Peter Shipley, Programme Delivery Director at Thames Tideway Tunnel will be speaking at London Build as part of the London Infrastructure and Civil Engineering Summit, on October 26th.
