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.

Christmas Working Hours
Over the Christmas period there will be no construction works taking place.

Piling and Cabin Removal
We shall shortly be starting our permanent piling. Following the arrival of the new site offices, the old offices will need to be removed from site.

What are our working hours?

Standard working hours are 8am to 6pm Monday-Friday and 8am-12pm 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.

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.
