Name our Tunnel Boring Machines
To build London’s super sewer under the River Thames, Tideway will be using a total of six machines which all need a name. Tradition tells us that to keep the tunnellers safe underground, a female name should be given to the machine before she sets off on her journey.
We want you to have a say on which women we should recognise as part of our work to clean up London’s river for generations to come.
The names below all relate to the local area where our machines will start tunnelling from so which do you think should be honoured by Tideway?
Once the voting closes, the most popular names for each machine will be announced. We’ll then be creating resources to provide to local schools on why these women are so important to their community, and how that relates to Tideway.
