Falconbrook Pumping Station

Site information

Falconbrook Pumping Station is largely an existing Thames Water pumping station site. This site encompasses the pumping station, a disused public convenience and a small area of York Gardens.

Falconbrook Pumping Station

Our teams are preparing to dig a shaft at this site, that will be used to connect the pumping station to our new tunnel. The shaft is a circular hole dug into the ground, that will be 9m wide and 45m deep. Before we can begin digging, we need to remove any obstructions from the ground, including the old pumping station structure, and we are making good progress on this. 

We have also completed the gantry structure which will support out permanent welfare on site, providing the team with all necessary on-site facilities. 

What are our working hours?

Standard working hours are 8am to 6pm Monday-Friday and 8am-1pm Saturday.  Also, there is a 1 hour mobilisation period before and after the Standard Working Hours, plus maintenance periods on Saturday 1-5pm and Sundays 10am-4pm.

We currently have extended working hours to complete the piling works on site. These are 7am to 8pm Monday - Friday and 8am to 6pm Saturday. 

There will be a period of 24-hour working during the construction of the Falconbrook connection tunnel. However, these 24 hr activities will be predominantly below ground.

We held a drop-in session for residents in November 2018.

The date for our next drop-in session will be announced soon.
