Thames Tunnel - Creating a cleaner, healthier River Thames
Tuesday 15 May 2012
- Lecture: 18.00
- Reception: 19.00
The proposed 25 kilometres long and 7.2 metres in diameter Thames Tunnel will broadly follow the route of the river from west to east, up to 67 metres below ground, to capture sewage from the 34 most polluting combined sewer overflows and transfer the flow to Beckton Sewage Treatment Works.
A clean and healthy River Thames is essential for the prosperity and global reputation of London. Future generations would never forgive us for failing to tackle this unacceptable problem.
