In pictures: super sewer to transform the banks of the Thames

Aerial photographs from the company building London’s super sewer, Tideway, have revealed new pockets of land to be created in the Thames as part of the subterranean project.

With tunnelling complete on the £4.2 billion project, focus has shifted to connecting the new system, a secondary lining, testing works and putting the finishing touches on above-ground public spaces that will open once the project is complete in 2025.

However, given the capital’s limited space, Tideway has had to build out into the Thames to house new infrastructure and create said spaces along its embankment.

Recently released photos and artists’ impressions demonstrate both project progress thus far and what Londoners can look forward to in the coming years.

“New public spaces in Wapping, Blackfriars, Victoria, Vauxhall, Nine Elms, Chelsea and Putney will benefit Londoners and visitors to the city for generations to come, and we can’t wait for them to open,” Clare Donnelly, lead architect on the Tideway project, said.
