Perhaps the most visible of all of our sites in London, located right next to Blackfriars Bridge in the City of London, you can view the construction going on here simply by walking along the bridge. Here, we are doing some of the most complex engineering we have to tackle, as we intercept one of the most polluting discharge points hidden beneath the bridge. We will also create the biggest piece of new embankment for Londoners to enjoy, adding to the rich history in the surrounding area.

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.
