There are interesting videos on the Thames Tideway Tunnel website explaining the need for this major engineering project which will reduce the pollution of the Thames.
With sewage and other rubbish in the Thames taking weeks and sometimes months to reach the sea, the overflows are a major problem. Increasing flash flooding and the attendant overspills caused by climate weirding are just adding to the problem.
This major new sewer will prevent the spillage of millions of tonnes of sewage into the tidal section of the river every year. It is expected that this project will tackle the problem of overflows from the capital’s Victorian sewers for at least the next 100 years, and enable the UK to meet European environmental standards.
