The team at Tideway's site along Albert Embankment has completed the secondary lining of its 49-metre-deep shaft.
The lining operation, which required 1,800 cubic metres of concrete and 400 tonnes of steel reinforcement, took 14 shutter lifts and started in October. As the secondary lining shutters ascended, the team has also been working on the shaft’s internal structures.
They will now move onto finishing the heading beam at the top of the shaft and start the new river wall - the perimeter of the new riverside public realm.
Once construction is complete, there will be two new areas of public space extending into the foreshore for Londoners to enjoy the River Thames. Following the end of our works, the Thames Path will also be reinstated.
