TV viewers will be given an insight into the construction of one of London’s biggest infrastructure projects in a new super sewer documentary set to start tomorrow (Tuesday 17 July).

The BBC’s ‘The Five Billion Pound Super Sewer’ charts the progress on construction of the super sewer over the past three years. It features staff at Tideway whose mission it is to clean up London’s river.

Lucy Webster, External Affairs Director, said: “‘The Five Billion Pound Super Sewer’ will give a great insight into some of the huge feats of engineering required to build a 25km tunnel under London, and the hard work our team has been undertaking as we work towards cleaning up the River Thames.”

The first episode of the three-part documentary will be aired on BBC2 on Tuesday at 9pm.

The documentary has been produced by TV company Raw.
