Deptford Church Street

It may not be located directly on the river, but our work here will connect to a major sewer below the ground that is responsible for thousands of tonnes of sewage pollution. We’re digging a shaft that will be the same size of the Arc de Triomphe right next to the Grade I listed St Paul’s church, which will connect to the Greenwich connection tunnel, before it sends sewage into the main super sewer.

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.
