Dormay Street is being used to connect the existing local combined sewer overflow (CSO) to the main tunnel. It was also used to drive a long connection tunnel southwards to King George's Park and northwards to Carnwath Road Riverside. This is known as the Frogmore Connection Tunnel and it links sewer overflows into the main tunnel.

Yemi Awosile

Extract and Distil

Yemi has developed an artwork, which responds to this specific history of the site, and comprises a series of four sculptural elements fixed to the fenders protecting the intertidal terraces within the Bell Lane Creek, off the River Wandle. The commission celebrates the unique cultural heritage of the site by looking at its connection to medical research and scientific exploration. The emphasis is one of freedom from disease through the increased availability of pharmaceutical therapies and scientific knowledge.

The design of the artwork is based on an interlocking system of modular patterns inspired by organic chemistry. The artist has modified the artwork to incorporate visual aspects of the molecular structure of histamine (molecular formula C5H9N).
