At Albert Embankment Foreshore, we’re building a beautiful new piece of land in the river next to Vauxhall Bridge as part of our work to ‘intercept’ the Clapham Storm Relief and Brixton Storm Relief combined sewer overflows.

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.
