Putney Bridge Foreshore

Site information

The Putney Embankment Foreshore site is on the southern bank of the River Thames. There are two sites: a main construction site and an area where we have built a temporary slipway to maintain public access to the River Thames. This site will be used to intercept the Putney Bridge combined sewer overflow.

Works Update
From Tuesday 26 February we will carry out some piling to construction a small cofferdam to the east of Putney Bridge.

The site will be closed for the Easter break from Friday 19 April and will reopen on Tuesday 23 April.

Our standard working hours are (with a 1-hour mobilisation period before and after these times):

  • Monday – Friday: 8am – 6pm

  • Saturday: 8am – 12 midday

Additionally, we have maintenance periods on the weekend:

  • Saturday: 1 – 5pm

  • Sunday: 10am – 4pm

There will be approximately two months of 24-hour working. However, activities will be predominantly below ground.

The date for the next Putney Embankment Foreshore and Barn Elms CLWG will be announced shortly.

Our Putney site team are committed to managing our works and mitigating any impacts. Examples of measures we currently have in place include:

  • Hoarding has been erected along the site boundary

  • Use of low level directional lighting

  • Construction will be suspended during identified river race events, including the University Boat Race and any barges associated with the works removed

  • Barges will only be loaded and unloaded during standard working hours with no weekend river transport permitted 

  • The use of surface cranes will be minimised outside of standard working hours

  • Except for the anchor piles, push piling will be used, unless determined to be impossible

  • The temporary slipway is operational and will be open until the original slipway is reinstated

  • Access to Putney Pier will be maintained for the duration of the construction 

  • Set limits to control activities, such as noise (Section 61 approval) from LB Wandsworth
